Dinner with colleagues after a long day's work. As at previous visits, beer-list is long and offers a selection of very good beers. Food is good but the beers is the reason to come.

Not sure why we'd never tried this restaurant before but now we're ready to make it a regular go-to!! We went on a whim with a $10 off coupon we found. After about a 30 minute wait in the bar area (not bad for a weekend night) we had a delightful yet casual meal. I tried the Open Faced Meatloaf... More

As noted an ale house, thus casual eating; was not conducive to a quiet conversation, but enjoyed ourselves nevertheless

I think Dogfish has wonderful food and service. My only complaint is the noise level. It is VERY noisy. That is hard for an older person like myself.

Great place to meet and sample their beer. I've been to the brewery in Delaware, and this is the first time at the restaurant. The salad with chicken and shrimp was a good companion to the beer I selected.

Actually went here for lunch twice during the same business trip. On the first visit I order their steak salad. I have absolutely no complaints and our waiter was great. I ordered their Ruben on my second visit. It might be the best Ruben I have ever had. And again, a great waiter.

First visit to a Dogfish Head Alehouse and was not expecting the mob scene. It was fun but a little to crowded. However, were seated upstairs in a nice booth. Service and beer great! The plates were large and pricey. Would have like choice of smaller plates. Overall a place I would go back to and recommend.

To go along with the best beer anywhere, the 60 minute, try the Turkey Avocado Club. Hopefully you will have Dylan as your server for a perfect dining experience

Been to the "dog" many times. Food and service is always good. Burgers are good and need to check on what is the "burger of the month". Some are very unusual. As an app, hummus is good. If really hungry or a larger group, the nachos are good. Had them with just 2 of us and was too much for... More
