Wing Heaven!

Just a great place for casual lunch, dinner , or a quick beer. No other place that serves wings compares-period! The people that work here and the owner are really great, very friendly with excellent service. It's not a big place but it's just a great vibe. Good upbeat music great meal specials... read more

I met two friends here for lunch, planning to have the wings. I have driven past many times but never stopped. This place is amazing! We each picked a flavor. All were amazing! Brought home 3 kinds for my family. They were so good one of my daughters went the next week with a friend. I have been lucky enough... More

By far the BEST wings EVER. Very meaty and cooked perfectly. My favorites range from 'plain salt and pepper' to 'bacon butter garlic parmesan'. And it's only a bonus that everything else on the menu is to die for. Plenty of good micro brews on tap too.

The wings were good- we got them as take out. They are better than a buffalo wild wings, but I would say that the wings at dew drop are on par with the quality of archie moose's. The Dew Drop does offer an extensive variety of flavors, however. We tried "medium," "honey bbq," and "jalepeno cheddar." All of them were... More

We were told this place had amazing wings and good list of craft beers. We were not disappointed! Impressive list of beers, particularly IPA's. The list of wing choices is largest we have seen. Tried the Asian and apple Bourbon....all good. Sides such as fried green beans with wasabi sauce had to be ordered and were excellent. And the burgers....also... More

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 flavor combos seem strange but they... 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
