There was a full house at the restaurant when our group of 20 arrived (we had made a reservation) but they can handle bigger groups with apparent ease. Beverages and food delivered with speed and efficiency. All orders were correct and the food was hot and tasty. Employees pleasant. Enjoyed this casual dining experience.

We were very excited to eat here and we were not disappointed. They have a great menu and the food was unbelievable. The highlight by far though was the beer, it was great to be able to try their different brews and our server was very knowledgeable and able to steer us in the right direction to our selections.

Second visit to Dogfish Head, and it was just as good as the first. Both times, the sandwiches were delicious. Everyone else in the group enjoyed their meals as well. For me, the highlight was the onion rings. Fresh, not frozen, they are some of the best I've ever had. As the designated driver, I had to pass on the... More

I'm a bit of a beer snob and like the Dogfish stuff out of a bottle. I was tremendously excited to visit this place and wasn't disappointed. My suggested 15 minute wait for a table only ended up being 5, which just gave me time to get a beer at the bar and try and couple of suggestions from the... More

Large selection of good meals-not your ordinary bar food. Great beer. The service was excellent. We ended up going there twice in a five day stay.

We were told that they're not Rehobeth, worked fine for us. There were more beers on tap, our server Ashley was fun and outgoing, the food was awesome and had a nice decor. The food portion sizes were extremely generous, usually that's a great thing, could've gone for another brew but was topped off! This place was off centered, in... More

this is not fine dining, but it's consistently good all American cuisine. My family likes the burgers best, but there are many other options. I was going to rate the food a 4 because it's not really my kind of a menu, but my kids convinced me to change it to a 5. We have been here often and have... More

Very good cheeseburgers and great service! Chefs care about the cut of beef! Even though it's a bar it is sometimes a bit too loud during lunch time. Otherwise, great family place after work and weekends. Consistent quality all around!
