Most standard dogfish head beers on tap although they have been out of the 60 minute my last 2 visits. Food is good and portion size will fill you up. Draft prices tend to be high but if you stick with their ipaís and stouts they are probably on par.

Typical Fern bar food, but, seemed a bit fresher. (Went two nights and both meals were good). The beer was only DFH and seemd not to have too many specialties. Did have Immort and Raison Díextra on tap. Incredible and worth the trip for those. Right across the street from NIST. Didnít see any vintage on the menu.

I happened to be in the area for business and drove about an hour to get out to Dogfish Head. The place was sort of a typical restaurant/pub. Nothing special from what I could tell. The only interestng beer that they were serving that I couldnít get at home was the Alehouse 75. It was good, but I was disappointed there wasnít more one-off type brews available - maybe there is at the brewery. The food was a cut above your average bar food. All in all, it was worth it to say I have been to a DFH spot, but I donít think Iíll go back next time I am in town.

I was a little disappointed here since I love dogfish so much. The real disappointment was that they only had their standard beersno raison díextra, no immort ale, or any other beers i really wanted to sample and the spring beer was already gone. It was also fairly standard ambiance. That said, the beers they do have pour extremely well and there is some good food. Itís more than worth a visit, it just doesnít live up to what iíd expect from dogfish.

I find the food here to be the best pub-fare I have sampled. The burgers are awesome. The beers are good, but if you donít like sweet or fruity beers and want to stick with dry ales itís a little one-dimensional ranging from a lawn-mower beer to the 90 minute.

Visited on 02/28/2009. Finished off my Maryland trip here. All of the usual Dogfish brews are on tap here (as well as a few mixes). Mostly I just wanted to try the Lawnmower Light since thatís one of the few commonly available but not bottled brews. Friendly staff, though the place was very busy.

Love the fact that they serve DFH beers and I couldnít go wrong with this selection. I wasnít impressed with the service or the food, especially at the prices they charge. Highly recommended for someone wanting to try DFH on tap but would suggest the Falls Church alehouse location.

As others have said, the selection is disappointing if youíre looking for hard-to-find brews on tap. However, their regular draft menu includes a black and tan (chicory stout over 90-minute ale) and the alehouse 75 (half 60-minute, half 90-minute... get it?). The biggest problem is the price - $5 or more for drafts, outside of happy hour. There are rare bottles available, but youíre going to pay a premium for them.

I didnít realize this was just an hour down the road. A little expensive for the fare but terrific beer! Service was sub-par and I wish they had more of the Hard-to-Find brews of theirs available. We will have to try again.
