We are fortunate to have Dogfish in our town; the food is great and the beer is even better. The menu has a lot of variety and the service is great. The restaurant is pretty large and has a nice outdoor patio. Many people like to gather her for happy hour.

Came here with a group of colleagues after a meeting. Very busy even on a weeknight, but wasn't worth the wait. So noisy it was hard to talk, and the waitress never brought one of the drinks to our table. Wait staff was clearly stretched so hard to get their attention to correct. Food was ok but a bit bland--others... More

Great ale - you can try a taste before you commit to a glass. Great food, excellent wait staff. You can't go wrong here; preference is to eat in the bar because of the atmosphere, but it is all good.

Everything we've ordered has tasted so good, but nothing beats their jambalaya! Loaded with well seasoned shrimp, chicken and sausage, this dish is coated in creamy, cheesy goodness and topped off with a good spicy kick. We love coming here with our family and friends.

Love their Chicken Avocado Club sandwich. My son likes the ales. Took my in-laws for lunch and they loved the Reubens.

Lunch was quick and delicious! My kids were hungry, and the waitress was accommodating and listened attentively. The French fries were fresh. The grouper sandwich is excellent. They were nice about substituting the rye bread bc of allergies. Great customer service!

One of my favorite local spots for a casual, good meal. Usually sit in the bar area where it's first come, first serve. Otherwise, the wait could be quite long on the weekend. It's a little noisy, but you can see the TV's if there's a game you might be interested in. I don't smoke, but they have outdoor dining... More

Great local cuisine and feel! Enjoy great burgers, wraps and appetizers with a great selection for cold beverages. The ribs were good and the appetizers Chips...mmmm They were fresh fried potato chips with lots of blue cheese and dressing drizzled across the top.

I literally wanted to throw this decorated pile of crap at the chef and the manager. In an effort to seek a good beer and fantastic eats, I picked this spot for my review meeting and never been so disappointed in all my food experiences in Gaithersburg. I yelp, and trip advise so looking at photos from other diners I... More
