“Best place in town!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

After a week stay in Gaithersburg we found this the night before we all flew out. The parking lot was packed but we got right in. Crabcakes were perfect! and Jambalaya was a big hit at the table too.

“More then just beer”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

They have amazing beer selection and good food to pair. Good pizzas, amazing burgers...ask for the cajun dipping sauce! Wine drinkers and kids will find plenty to love here, too!

“Great sports bar!”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Dogfish has a great selection of craft beers. Many on tap to taste before you buy. They have great grouper and shrimp as well as chili. The Caesar salad was fresh and tasty. They have GOOD burgers that are all on special every Monday and our server was right on time with just the right amount of professionalism and speed of service. There are plenty of TVs around to watch that game or tournament you love to watch. For a great time with the guys or a nice casual date, you can't go wrong with Dogfish Head Alehouse.

Great local pub feel and excellent food. Try the seasonal brews. Very good burgers and they do an excellent job with fish & chips.

“You go for the beer but I go for the food”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

I know this is a beer place and the people drinking beer at the restaurant seem to enjoy it. I am not a beer drinker. I go for the food. I give this restaurant high marks. They have a good food selection and I have always enjoyed what I ordered. This is a popular restaurant especially on the weekends so plan on waiting unless you call ahead. This is a fun, casual place that is loud but in a good way.
