I have to say upfront that it's hard for DFH to do wrong in my eyes. I've never had a bad beer here. Some of those beers I wouldn't have again, only for the fact that there are plenty that I can't get enough of. I make the pilgrimage from Southern NJ to Southern Del several times throughout the year by land and by ferry.

I had the pleasure of bumping into Sam there last year while my buddy and I were having a good session. Unlike guzzle211 posted, we were in fact like gushing school girls and made total fools of ourselves. The bartenders that were there remembered us from then on and we still have a good laugh about it. If you get the chance make sure to hit the brewery tour in Milton.

A- Wood everywhere in an open bar area. Long bar with plenty of tables for dining. I'd probably rate the atmosphere a little bit higher if the tables weren't so close to the bar. If it's standing room only at the bar and a customer is seated at a table near it, their view will leave plenty to be desired. The view from upstairs is very nice if you get the chance to do one of their beer dinners.

Q- Again, I've never had a bad beer here. Everything is fresh and with so many seasonal and limited release beers, the stock is always turning over.

S- Great service from my 2 favorite bartenders Tracy and Wes. I should give them a 5 for their efforts but the layout of that long bar just isn't conducive for exceptional service on a busy night.

S- You'll always find a staple of 6 or 7 regular offerings plus 2 or 3 other beers that are seasonal, limited edition or exclusive to the Rehoboth brewpub and that's just on draught. 750ml and 12oz bottles of other varieties can be had at various times of the year.

F- Not your normal pub fare but you should like most of your food grilled or smokey. Again, not a bad meal there but let's face it, I go there to drink their beer. Plenty of variety in fish, meat, veg and apps.

V- The beer is probably underpriced but don't tell them that. The food is a little bit higher then you'll pay for a burger and dip elsewhere but is justified by the quality of the fresh ingredients and of course the beer. (2,146 characters)

Vibe is pretty standard for a brew pub, lots of cool DFH swag on the walls, wait staff is friendly, bartenders seemed pretty knowledgeable. Beer is pretty standard for DFH, most of the beers are year around offering, but they did have a few beers that aren't widely available/draft only. Food was good, ordered a pizza, was a little small, but well made. Prices on beer are great, would like to revisit during the fall or winter when there are less people. (459 characters)

Couldn't spend a vacation in Delaware without stopping here, and I'm very glad we did. The service was excellent. Pretty busy for a Wednesday night, but we only waited 15 minutes for a table, and our food was out within 15 minutes of ordering. Our server was attentive and accomodating. I had fish tacos and the wife had crab cakes--both above average. A minor annoyance that my first choice on the "rarities stash" beer list board was actually gone, but it wasn't a problem to find a suitable second choice. Will definitely make my way back here sooner or later. (563 characters)

Great food, great vibe, quality DFH brews, and reasonable prices. The selection is about all one could expect given DFH's popularity and variety of beers. The cask 75 minute IPA served at 55F was fantastic with a burger. A must visit. (237 characters)

So worth the trip! They have other varieties of libations as well, not just beer! (82 characters)

Really? There is nothing special about getting the same beers here you can get everywhere else. Isn't the point to brew beers on site that you can't get anywhere else? On the visit, there was only one beer and it was a black ipa, hardly unique. If the goal is to serve food with dogfish beer, well I guess they did it. It is billed as a place to get unique dogfish brews, when there are none. For unique beer, visit the main brewery. Very disappointing here. (458 characters)

They need to bottle Blood Moon ASAP. For real. It's only my second beer with smoked flavor in it, but I guess I'm a huge fan of that style, because the two smoked beers I've had were exceptional (though this one's technically not a Rauchbier). The food was very good and they have more beer options and more vintage options here than at the brewery. It's also located in a neat town right near the beach. I'm very upset I forgot to try the 75 Minute Cask, I hear that it's a totally different and preferable beast compared with the bottle version, but I guess that's what happens after 120 Minute IPA and 2 flights, one of which was all 10%+ abv. beers. Oh well. I hope to come back some day and find my car in less than 45 minutes. How I wish the brewery and brewpub were closer... (782 characters)
