First date kinda place

Dog fish head is my ideal first date kinda place. It's always fun getting a flight and trying the different beers. And the warm cheesy crab dip is a must.

Went to this restaurant on a recent business trip in Gaithersburg, MD on a weekday night, and was hoping for a good experience, but unfortunately, this restaurant really let me down! Place was clean, and had a reasonably inviting atmosphere, as I looked around and sat down at a table near the bar. Waitress was prompt and friendly. I looked... More

Dogfish is the best place to go for a great beer, great food and welcoming staff. The beer menu is supreme and the staff if very knowledgeable and can help you find your perfect pint. Food is always a winner. Great for families, couples or on your own.

My sister, who lives near Dogfish, suggested we eat here while we were visiting from Florida. The restaurant quickly accommodated 4 kids and 2 adults. The waitress was great and suggested a crap dip appetizer which we ordered and loved! Our main courses were just as good as the appetizer - a salad with blackened shrimp and a crab cake... More

Good beer and burgers, but nothing special in terms of pub type food. They distill their own vodka in addition to the various beers. Interesting idea but nothing out of the ordinary. Burgers are good (if cooked correctly), but anything else is hit and miss. Lots of fried stuff, so not a great place for dieters. This review sounds more... More

I have been here for lunches and dinners, with small groups and large. The food and service is excellent. The only problem I have had is appropriate placement. When I made a reservation for 15 people we were given several different tables and booths-not conducive to communication. At our request they did make other arrangements. Service is efficient. The menu... More

Came for business lunch. We had fish tacos, calamari, pretzel, quesadilla, pizza, burgers. All good. I have seafood allergy and they were very accomodating to me. Good food and nice servers.

This location has always been a very good place to take customers to lunch. It is casual yet the food is very good. I highly recommend their steak salad with the mustard dressing
