Not what you might expect...better

First and foremost this is a bar/brewpub which serves decent pub grub. It's small, it can be loud but mostly, it's fun. Staff was friendly and attentive and though it took quite a while to get our wings (we ordered four different flavors), they all came out hot, crispy and delicious. Some of the... read more

So...I've heard so much about The Dew Drop and finally decided to try it out. First of all ~ it was a gorgeous day and the place was packed, fortunately though there were 2 seats left at the bar so we got right in. We tried the Hot Buttered Garlic wings and just regular Buffalo. They were the best wings... More

Let me just say that if you are a fan of beer and wings there is no better place to imbibe. They have a ton of incredible beers on tap including Dogfish Head 120 which is a personal favorite. Its very rare and even more expensive so the fact they would buy it by the keg tells me they are... More

I heard so much about this place and the wings I finally made it a point to go. Went on a Wednesday, when they have a burger and a beer special for about $13. I had wings, my son had the burger. It's definitely a bar atmosphere, small crowded and noisy, lots of TVs. It's just fine as long as... More

This resteraunt /bar has great burgers and wings. I cannot get enough of their wings. Something for everyone. We get take out on a routine basis. Does has a bad reputation as a biker bar. Would go with family during the day and early evening.

The place is amazing. You would not think so but drop in and find out. The wings are above average the steak sandwich is great. And if you want to have a fantastic steak dinner go on Thursday night. Be prepared to wait. But it's worth the wait. Oh yea ice cold beer waiting ain't bad either!!!!

I was born in Griffin Hospital in Derby, Connecticut. Derby is the smallest city in the State of Connecticut. I have loyalty to Derby and I have found two hidden gems in the small city. One is Roseland Apizza and the other is the Dew Drop Inn. My first visit was Saturday April 19, 2014. I was researching different burgers... More

Good food overall but in a word...WINGS!!! They have approx 30-40 varieties and they're great. All of their other food is very good too.

...and lack of seating. Otherwise it's closer to 4 stars all the way. I've never seen so many wing choices; PBJ, butter this, butter that. Even dessert wings! I had fried green beans for an app that were great and a bacon cheeseburger cooked perfectly with a large side salad, a great option for a diabetic like me. All the... More
