This was our first visit to Dogfish Head Alehouse -- a Saturday night retirement party for a close friend. Lots of families present. The food was very good and the service was fantastic! Good-size portions, too. We both ordered the fish and chips, which were...More

As one would hope, the beer is the star here! Having visited multiple times in the past month, the evolving menu of suds is consistently interesting, internationally diverse and most importantly fresh! Confused by the many options? Go for the beer sampler. Great! The space...More

We love the food and beer here. Burgers rate 10/10 according to my 15 year old son. Usually busy but can get in pretty quickly. Love it.
