Very nice establishment. Nice stained-wood bar interior with wood floors/tables and a nice dining area. Food was excellent. I had the crab dip and the alfredo pizza. The beers were expectedly great but they were out of a few beers I wanted (one of which was Aprihop, and itís the Spring!). The service at the bar was excellent and our server had that nice balance of being attentive but also leaving you alone. The 90 and 60 minute IPA fresh on tap are a totally different experience in a good way, IMO. Highly recommended.

Very nice place with a relaxed atmosphere. Lunch menu was outstanding (def go with the crabcake). Beer selection was pretty good, but they didnít have some of the cool stuff that Rehoboth gets (i.e. Burton Baton on tap). If it wasnít so far out of the way Iíd go there all the time.

When I saw this place I had to stop in. Nice atmosphere. Dim lighting, and a nice mahogney bar, and hardwood floors. They had little Dogfish signs naming their beers around the bar, and bottles on the mantle. Two TVís by the bar to watch the games. Service was friendly. She knew the beer she was serving. Selection was good, they had most everything on-tap except for the special beers. They had World Wide Stout aged in bottle, and Raison on tap. They were however, out of the Olde School Barleywine. They had their own vodka and whiskey, but we didnít try it. We didnít try the food either, although it looked pricey.

Nice atmosphere somewhere in between a casual local joint and an upscale restaurant. Basically Iíd feel comfortable bringing a girl here on a date, bringing the folks, or just showing up for some drinks at happy hour. Decent lineup of taps with some rotating seasonals and vintage. 90min on tap is usually excellent and served in a snifter. Food isnít too fancy, but tasty and well made. Staff has always been friendly and even offered me tastes of the DFH liqours which were fun to try. The only complaint I can offer is the prices...but itís DFH, so you already accepted the above average prices when you walked in the door. Suck it up and enjoy the beer.

Not quite as good as the pub, but excellent none the less. I went at lunch and it was a decent small crowd. The bartender (Chad) was quite frendly and knowledgeable. I finally got to try Midas Touch and was quite pleased. Last bottle they had to be exact. Only drawback is that they have some bottles and some vintage bottles of WWS, Olde School, and 120, but in that county you canít get bottles to go and since I was driving for the next 3 hours I had to stay away from the hard stuff.

Decent atmosphere. The place was full of middle-aged white guys in cheap business attire talking very loudly after getting their buzz on. About the number of people I expected on a Tuesday night. Our waitress was annoyingly talkative but she managed to track down the last bottle of Festina Lente (my girlfriend laughed when she saw that it set me back $17) in the house after I asked about it a few times. There actually wasnít much to choose from that I hadnít been able to find in local liquor stores already. The jambalaya was too salty and my girlfriend didnít like her pizza.

Average to nice restaraunt atmosphere with a decent sized bar area. I have always had very attentive and very friendly service. I love the food. Nothing to fancy just well made pizzas, burgers, sandwiches etc. And the beer....mmmm. Its nice to be having lunch and think I would like some world wide stout from the tap and actually be able to get it (when in season) I really like having access to DFH seasonals on tap and brewpub only beers. So nice I bought a house about 5 miles away from it!

Good food, service was fine, neat little bar (though we sat outside on the patio on a lovely day). But youíre not really there for any of those -- itís the beer, and the beerís DFH, so if you should be a very happy camper. At least, until you see the bill and realize the snifters of WWS and 90-minute were $9 each. Iíd also be happier if they offered up more stuff that you canít find elsewhere.
