I went here the week before Christmas while staying down the road in Dewey. The street was well decorated for the holidays, although most of the shops in the area were closed for the season. My girlfriend and I stopped in for dinner around 6. It was the offseason so we had no trouble getting a table; in fact the place was only about half full.

The food was very good and much of it was local grown produce and meats/seafood. I had a garden salad with local veggies and the fifth column pizza with crab, asparagus, and tomatoes. It was different but very good. My girlfriend had the ceasar salad and a crab cake sandwich, which was also very good. I appreciated the diverse menu and local flair of most dishes. Some of the entrees were in the $20-30 range but you can easily get a burger or pizza for $10-15.

The real attraction for me was the beer. They have 20+ beers on tap, including all the usual suspects and a few brewery exclusive beers. They also have the 75 minute on cask, which I highly recommend. I appreciate the fact that their website keeps a very well updated draft list in case you are like me and prefer to do a bit of research ahead of time. They also have a small vintage selection of bottles from the past few years, although these are a bit pricey. Their beers are in a $5-7 price range, which is fine for many of the normal beers in pints, but is a bit much for some of the 10 oz. pours they offer. The prices on the beer are comparable to what I usually find at nicer bars, but I would have expected slightly better for the brewpub. It wasn't outrageously priced, by any means. They also offer a sampler of small pours with the price varying based on what you select. Obviously this is the way to go if you are interested in trying several of their beers. They also have a wide variety of liqour distilled in house with a number of specialty cocktails. I didn't try any but, like the beer, some of them sounded like very unique concoctions.

I appreciated the kiosk outside the brewpubs which offered all of their merchandise and bottled beer to go. I picked up a few different pieces of glassware, a tin sign, and a growler, all very reasonably priced.

Overall I enjoyed my experience here. The atmosphere was laid back with a beach feel. The prices were a tad high, but not unreasonable, especially for a vacation beach town. I recommend checking this place out of you enjoy DFH beers and be sure to get the 75 minute on cask!

Been going here since early 1996, and it never fails to impress. Excellent vibe with a great look, feel and good good people. Music is always top notch. Very good ongoing selection of great DFH beers made special by the cask and one off beers that are always fun to try. Food is interesting and consistently excellent.
Business has grown, and the old pub feel is now a much busier restaurant like feel...at least on weekend nights and the summer crush. But on off hours and/or off season...the off centered clearly returns and its really a great personal beer experience you can share with the staff and others there to drink world class beer in a local pub setting. One of my favorites, and definitely one of the very best of the bigger craft beer company brew pubs.

It's a great local craft beer like pub, but also could be a great meet up with friends. You will need to get there early to get a seat. My husband and I stood around for a half an hour on a early November evening, hoping to get dinner, but still wasn't dissatisfied by the tap list instead. We decided to make the most of it, and grab a couple beers, walk out on the empty early winter deck and enjoy a Java cigar over our brews. The Bitch's Brew on tap is a must. We had previously had it in bottle several times, but it made it all the better to have it fresh. Also the only place to get Dogfish Head Vodka. Don't pass up on this. Slightly pricey for a 750ml, but well worth the quality. We made our 750ml Peanut Butter Vodka last for a whole year, as a treat!
A must!

DFH's flagship bar is a must stop for anyone in the Rehoboth area. I went there over the summer and had the Kvasir and Aprinaut on tap. They have a great selection of beers that are limited distro and even some that have been aged. They have a well-stocked stand connected to the bar where you can pick up some beer/t-shirts/etc to take home. The DFH brewery is only about a 30 minute drive from the bar so making a day out of the two of them is totally possible.
