Meetup dinner with large group

I joined a large group for dinner. We had a terrific waiter. Prices are very reasonable. Our waiter had no issue/complaints about writing up separate checks for each guest. I had the arugula salad with a couple changes. The chef and waiter were happy to accommodate, no questions asked. I will... read more

I guess I'll never know, since they refused to seat my disabled mother because they were too busy to find a table for us that would accommodate her wheelchair. After waiting an hour and a half while they suggested we sit at the bar repeatedly (tables far too tall for her wheelchair) or shrugged unhelpfully, we left.

Love the food at Dogfish! The wood grill gives the food great flavor. They are incredibly quick at lunch.

Dogfish Head makes some of the best gluten-free beer I have tasted. This was my first opportunity to eat at one of their restaurants, and I wasn't disappointed. You don't have to ask for a gluten-free menu; it is part of their regular menu. The waiter was very knowledgeable. I ordered their special, and he double checked with the chef... More

Everything we've tried here has been great. We recommend the blackened chicken sandwich, the fish and chips, and the steak salad. Nice local joint with quality food and decent prices. Have never had a bad meal here.

I love this pub. I have been going here since they opened and have never had a meal I did not like. My problem is that once I find something really delicious info here and order the same thing. My favorite at the moment are the Mahi-Mahi tacos. They are served with a delicious rice and just mediocre black beans.the... More

Being from Gaithersburg we have visited on occasion our local Dogfish Head Alehouse. Most recently we visited due to a fan appreciation offer we received. Even though it was a Tuesday night the place was still very busy. We had about a 40 minute wait as it seems we weren't the only ones with the offer. Having said that I... More

I had lunch here with a group of colleagues. This place is really buzzing during lunch hours. I had the rustic burger and a couple of Dogfish ales as I was not returning to do more work after lunch. Prompt service, great food and some spectacular ales from their own brewery. I'd love to return here.
