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

Stopped by here on a Tuesday night and really enjoyed it. The service was outstanding, very friendly, professional, and attentive. They have a good selection of beers and the food was excellent. Very comfortable place to eat. We'll definitely visit again.

We are local residents but love Dogfish Head Alehouse. Service is always good and food is great. Soft pretzel with crab dip is to die for! Fried grouper sandwich is another must try. You won't be disappointed if dine here for lunch or dinner. Great selection of micros for the beer drinkers :)

Although I have been to this Dogfish several times, I have never reviewed. They have always done a great job, serve awesome food and drinks, and even have Special events. They had a New Years Eve dinner special which was fantastic. From 7-9, and 10-12 seating. Will be back!!!!

Fantastic food. Great service. Good selection of ales. Bring your passport if you are young looking. A British driving licence was not accepted!
