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

I have visited the Dew Drop Inn several times over the last several months. I have driven by this place for years...and every time I thought I might go in.....I didn't until this year. It may look a little rough outside but once you walk in - the place is small but clean and filled with plenty of televisions to... More

Not gonna lie, the seating is minimal...and I mean minimal. Like 5 tables. It's always packed, and its that way for a reason. You'll probably be afraid to go in. It's a little dive bar, out of the way..looks kind of rough. Go ahead it, order some wings, a brew..maybe a burger or a salad. You'll be glad you did!... More

From the first trip in to the most recent, only complaint is that they are becoming so popular that it is hard to get in!! PB and J wings are the bomb. Love all the craft beers and the fact that they allow you to sample, because while I would love to be adventurous it is hard if you get... More

We were driving on highway 34, when we realized we were hungry. We asked Siri what is a good restaurant near us and Dew Drop Inn popped up as number 1. We were approaching Derby. It was highly rated and we assumed it had to be a fancy restaurant and that we may have been underdressed. We were wrong. The... More

We've often hit the DDI for their Monday half-price wings extravaganza, which can be washed down with a wide selection of domestic and imported draft or bottled brews. The wings are fabulous, come in a number of tasty to mouth-arson incarnations, and I haven't had a bad set yet. Friendly and attentive wait staff, and convivial atmosphere - as our... More

Really good food, on the pricey side. Over ten bucks for burgers and for the wings. I got a twelve ounce Belgium style ale for 7.50 that tasted skunky, not in the good Belgium way either. I should have sent it back. Wait staff was excellent.
