Went here for dinner on the recommendation of the hotel. Hubbey loved his steak mac and cheese and I had the brisket. Portions were huge, who needs 10oz of meat then mashed potatoes and green beans. while we didn't have room for dessert the people behind us did and they looked really good and big enough for two. Price of... More

Great ribs and beer, but I think some beers are over priced? Service is nice and the ambient is cozy Parking is always available

I've been to this Dogfish Head many, many times and love it! They've got amazing, inventive beers along with decent food and service.

Had a coupon so visited this restaurant for the first time. Tasty ahi tuna and wood-baked salmon, both totally fresh, made for delicious main courses. They were accompanied by good rice and overly salty mashed red-skinned potatoes respectively. Both also came with steamed broccoli and cauliflower, unseasoned and bland. Good service and outstanding fish at a fair but not really... More

We've been going to Dogfish regularly for years and have our favorites, such as the turkey-avocado club sandwich, but enjoy the seasonal treats that the management affords like the roasted artichokes. We are older patrons and enjoy going to Dogfish during the week at mid afternoon when activities are slow and the service quick. Love the 90 minute IPA! Pick... More

A fun place. We go every month. I love the beers, and my wife can tolerate the wines. They have a few very good dishes, and also some that are just bar food. Service is upbeat and fun. If you like noise, you'd like the weekends. If you just want to relax, enjoy the beer and talk, you would love... More

This is a restaurant my husband and I visit often. He is particularly fond of the pizza and I can't get enough of the Garlic Caesar Salad ( I add blackened salmon...so good). If you're really hungry, I highly recommend the IPA Gouper sandwich. They also have quite a beer selection! It can get a little noisy when it's crowded,... More

Dogfish Head is a good brew pub that is conveniently located in the Seven Corners area of Falls Church. They have a wonderful selection of beer. The food is very good, but not great.

I've had lunch here alone, with the wife, with my cousin. They offer a good variety of beers and ales as flights, and they'll let you taste a beer or two to find the one you want a glass of. Sandwiches, soups, and fries are usually excellent. I'll keep coming back when I'm in the area and hungry.
