Sat out on the back deck for a late dinner. Started with the corn and crab chowder, and shared the crab dip with friends. For an entree I got the tuna steak sandwich with fries. The sandwich was a bit plain, but the tuna was well marinated with a light salsa-like topping on it. Take off the bread and you're good to go. The server was quick, nice, and didn't BS --which I really appreciate when I am dining. Most pints were $4 to $5 which I thought was fair. The bar inside is nice and looks like a boathouse transformed into a restaurant/bar. I saw Sam himself sitting at a table drinking a beer, but I didn't get a chance to go shake his hand because he was being interviewed for a paper or mag or something. Oh yeah, the bartender was a good guy too that knew how to talk to any level of beerdum of the clientele and there was a nice older woman tending bar as well that was very social and pleasant.

They have a great operation going on.

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.
