Went there on a Thursday late evening. Not crowded. The bartender was nice and service decent. Beer selection is good but not exceptional. Other than beer, nothing too special

One of three Dogfish Head Alehouses between VA and MD. Solid draft selection of Dogfish Head beers though usually nothing you can’t find elsewhere. Once in awhile they’ll get a special/brewpub exclusive beer. Food is standard pub fare but pretty good. Flights and growler fills available. A bit pricey especially with bottles. Free parking around the restaurant and in the larger lot by Shopper’s.
Great spot, although more for the beer than the interior. Lots of great dfh options on tap. Service great and burger was really solid. Out of the way if you’re trying to get here from downtown, but if you are in the area it’s worth he visit.
Came here December 1st for my birthday, only DC location to have 120 min. IPA on draft. Parking was easy, pretty busy place as the wait was 45 mins. Waiter was friendly, my 8oz of 120min was enough that night for beer (~18 taps there). Food was good. I asked if they had any to-go bottles of Old School Barleywine but they were out but they pointed out a nearby Wine & More that probably had it. Overall a good experience.
In a former Uno’s pizza restaurant. Large with an engineered chain restaurant ambiance. 17 dogfish head beers on draft. No size choice on the servings. Food is above average for pub grub. Worth a visit if you are in the hood.
With this visit, I’ve hit every DFH location except the brewery itself. The Rehoboth Beach location is obviously by far the best. This one is in a generic suburban stripmsll, but is very close to major transportation routes. No special beers here, just the usual mainstream DFH and a seasonal. Food is OK. Prices are high. They will do growlers soon, but no date has been set. They do 7 ounce poirs of all their beers, but it doesn’t save you much cash. A 7 oz pour of Black and Blue was $8.25, fir a 10% beer. Go to the Beach if you can.
Always a wide variety of DFH beers on tap and in the bottle, with seasonals on constant rotation. The service and food are above average for a brewpub, making the Alehouse a comfortable place for families. Nice range of entrees, from unique, huge sandwiches to more traditional American pub food like steaks and roast chicken. A standby at our house.
