No idea how I don’t have a rating for DFH. Killer beers, good service, quality bar foods. Prices are reasonable. Great location right by the beach.

Cool place, with good atmosphere on the beach. Good selection of taps, though nothing but a lobster beer that wasn’t available elsewhere. Good atmosphere, though busy on a weekend afternoon - packed with beachgoers. Had a pizza that was good as well, beer-soaked mushrooms. Good place to hit after the beach. They sell bottles for take away outside and sample flights inside.

Came here with a big group. Was seated quickly. Service was great. Food for adults were awesome but the pasta for kids were so so. Beer were awesome. Definitely the best place to go rehoboth beach. Probably one of the better brew pubs I have been to

Went here for my brother’s wedding rehearsal. Yikes, best man, probably shouldn’t have been wasted - haha, just kidding. Nah, this place is exceptional. Whoah, I had a DFH Palo Santo Marron with a super awesome Reuben, holy crap, that was an absolute awesome lunch and yet I still had to have my wife drive me back to my parents’ house. Geez Louise, I didn’t know how high that beer was. The food was absolutely stellar, holey bejeebus! The selection, well, its their beer, don’t be asking for BMC, you won’t get it. Overall, if I lived somewhat remotely close to that place, I’d be getting that on a daily to perhaps weekly maybe monthly basis depending upon exactly where I lived.

Parking lot is a little small, but there are a lot of meters along the median(s) just across from the entrance ($1.50/hr, quarters only, just FYI). Cool little giftshop just to the right of the entrance. Beer, tshirts, pickles, coasters, etc., prices are decent. Cool scene inside. The hostess was very nice and we sat right away, even though we sat at the bar (our choice). Tap selection was pretty vast. Many more common offerings, 1 exclusive, a few seasonals, and a couple limited offerings, and 1 on cask. Artwork and funky stuff hanging on the walls. Most of the art was from previous seasonal offerings. The funky stuff was anything from a rowboat to a fermentation tank with the Dogfish cut into it. The bar probably sat over 20. The bartender was nice, but seemed a little bitter about my ordering a flight. We ordered fried calamari, which was very good and came with a house-made chili dip. Prices were very reasonable. We also went back the next day for lunch and ordered the duck wings, the crabcake sandwich, and the pork confit sandwich, followed by the Bitches Brew brownies topped with Raison d’Etre icecream and a caramel made from the Dogfish Head Brown Rum. The tiny distillation room upstairs was pretty cool too. I will definitely be going back here.

What a great selection of dogfish head brews. Cheap brew and a great food selection make this place an amazing stopover when in town.

I love this place and try to go every time we are at the beach. Even in the off season this place is packed. While we have had the food here, we have never been seated at the tables. Food is great and unique. We will usually just wait around till space opens at the bar and settle in for a few pints. They always have beers on tap that are brewed right on the spot and only available in Rehoboth which is nice. You can also find aged ales, some of which are several years old. One I constantly find here is the Worldwide Stout from years past. If you like a stronger drink, they have started to distill their own vodka and gin which are available.

Visited: 2-18-14 Ambiance: Decent place, nice long bar that can hold 20+ patrons plus tables all around, brewiana all over the walls but a warm feeling place. Service: Bartender was decent, friendly, prompt and knowledgeable Selection: A wide selection of common DFH shelf beers plus 3 exclusive beers for the brewepub. Would like to see more in house stuff personally Food: Ordered the meatloaf sandwich which was covered in cheese and had a solid smokey nose and taste. Value: Three beers plus meatloaf sandwich came in under $30. Also, if you are an AHA member, you get 15% off your bill, a bonus. Overall, this was a return to my craft beer roots, where I started over a decade ago.

Well, I returned after 3 years. The place is just as nice as I remember, a bit quirky - certainly less packed during the off-season than during the regular season. I’ll start with the bad:

After becoming very familiar with all their regular and seasonal offerings as well as the DFH Alehouses in the DC area, this seems quite a bit less impressive. The beer selection is roughly equivalent to the other alehouses, and the food menu is a bit smaller here.

Why travel 3 hours (without traffic) to find that the *2 day old* menu they posted online is already almost totally out of date? That you only have two brewpub only offerings instead of the six listed (plus Pangaea, which is apparently now brewpub only) and you didn’t even tap a new beer? Weak sauce. Everything else you can get year round or easily during the season it is released.

The highlight of our trip was not the beer but the various liquor offerings they distill. They were very good. The liquor sampler was tasty. The mixed drinks were tasty. Most of our table switched to liquor after the first round of 2-3 samplers.

Fine as a tourist trap or uninitiated, but that’s about it.


Original Review:
I’m used to not only "city prices" and the prices at the Dogfish Alehouses in Virginia, so nothing really was a shock to me when entering the establishment. Food menu a bit smaller than I’d probably would have liked, but the food was quite good, so it’s not really a huge problem. Place is busy as all get out. We were able to wrangle up a spot at the bar, and slowly fill the bar with our group as people got up to leave. We passed on both the outdoor seating and the indoor seating, which were an hour for each. When we returned the following day at around 12:30 (they opened at 12 on Sunday) to pick up some Spirits to take home with us, we overheard someone mention an hour long wait for a table.
