Visited this location on a Friday around 2:00pm. Surprisingly it was pretty packed; we were seated with in 10 minutes (party of 5). We ordered the Cajun egg rolls and crab dip for appetizers- GREAT; would surely order again. For my entree I ordered a burger medium well- which was cooked medium rare (eeehhh) not happy about that.. I don't... More

Our Daughter-in-Law had just graduated, and we went to Dogfish to celebrate. While crowded, they put us into a small room which was perfect. The food was excellent and the portions large. Their French fries were spot on.

We came here for appetizers and drinks after a movie. The food was definitely above average for "brewpub" style. We love Dogfish Head beer and had visited the brewery in Milton recently. Prices here are very high... It's cheaper to get DFH on tap 500 miles away in Indiana. Environment here is very nice and friendly.

Came in on Friday of Thanksgiving weekend with a party of 8. Seated right away. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Waiter gave great food and beverage recommendations and was knowledgeabe regarding allergies. Fish and chips and macaroni and cheese were delis!!!

My husband and I really enjoy craft beer, so having the Dogfish Head Alehouse within a short driving distance is dangerous. First and foremost, Dogfish Head brews really good beer and a wide variety, so the assortment of beers on tap wins us over immediately. The restaurant is a pretty good size, with a large outdoor seating area as well... More

We heard this place was good and got crowded so we went for an early dinner. Seating was immediate. Awesome beer selection. We loaded up on appetizers including the crab soup and three cheese crab dip. Other than the soup being tepid and not really hot, taste was outstanding. Steak salad was huge. Not a great place for small children... More

I'm not a big beer drinker and yet I love this place! I can always find a beer that I like! My favorite part of this place though is the food. It's incredible. I've never had anything I didn't love here. Servers are always great and the atmosphere is relaxed and social. I highly recommend this place to anyone in... More
