“Fun for lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

We went on a Saturday afternoon for a late lunch, and this was the perfect place for a sandwich and a beer. Two of us tried their new grill cheese sandwiches (lots of different meats/veggies/cheeses), we had some wings and queso appetizers, and a kid's meal. Our plates were wiped clean! The beer was great too--such selection, but we felt rushed by our waitress to order our drinks. There's a lot to read on that beer menu!

“Don't go for the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Dogfish Head is really about the beer selection including microbrews. Bees for a large crowd especially it when the weather is nice and you can sit outdoors. Good for going out with your coworkers to blow off some steam.

“Hamburgular Was Delish!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

All kinds of different beers to try. They even have beer flights you can order. The hamburgular was very tasty! The spices in the burger were really good. The roast beef & cheddar was mouth watering. Good eats!

“Stopped in to try unique beers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I didn't have dinner or anything here, but a colleague and I stopped in after dinner to try some unusual beers. The had a number of things I don't get at home in Chicago, even at a great craft beer bar. Sat at the bar, service was good, prices weren't unreasonable.

“Good Crab Cakes!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

During a recent trip to Gaithersburg, I ate at Dogfish Head Ale House. The name caught my attention so I thought I'd give it a try. Wasn't sorry I ordered the crab cakes. They were some of the largest crab cakes I had seen. There was plenty of crabmeat and the spices were just right. Really enjoyed my meal.
