The bar is large and plenty of TV's. I had a pizza, perfect size for 1 hungry person. Easy access and plenty of parking out back.

Had not been here in almost ten years and forgot about it. My wife suggested we go there for an early dinner so off we went. I am very happy with the service, food and cost. I don't know about the beer since I don't drink and drive. We had the cajun egg rolls first. A blend if chicken and... More

Not from the area but familiar with brew pubs. This must be very popular because I tried to get a table on a Wednesday around 7pm and there was about 20-30 min. wait, but the next night we got there about half hour earlier and only a 10 min. wait, well worth it. I don't know if they accept reservations.... More

They have a sampler rack well worth it. Parking is available all over the place. The wait staff know there beers. Love the 90 & 120 min IPA. Make a reservation to avoid the wait. Or fronton the patio and bar. Good outdoor seating on the shady side of the building popular and crowded. Fish tacos are the best.

I always thought of Dogfish as first and foremost a brewery but I am happy to say I have never had a bad meal at Dogfish. Absolutely love their steak salad and enjoy great fish and chips.

We eat at a lot of breweries and pubs and this was truly yummy. 5 of us with 5 different meals, one better then the next. The jambalaya was perfectly spiced, the steak salad was huge. My youngest had Alfredo pasta that tasted like an actual adult meal but out two favorites were the make your own pizza and crab... More

The food is good and the portions are the right size as well. The Beer menu is extensive but it is very good and priced right. The ambiance is like a pub, but smells cleaner. The service was good and attentive.

Although known for their beer (which is quite good) they do have some pluses and minuses on their menu. Burgers are your best choice - always juicy and cooked exactly how you order them. I find the rest of the menu to be very hit or miss. Pizzas are decent but not special, fish and chips are average at best.... More

My husband loves the beer. I like Dave's Border burger, and the specials are always good. Even better, it is fine for loud little ones.
