good wings

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... read 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

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!!!!
