I will say this in all truth that this review is a bit biased since dogfish head is probably my favorite brewery. However, that does not change the fact that my experience with the restaurant was quite wonderful overall. I came in a few months ago with a friend for dinner and were seated at a window side booth. My first impression of the establishment is that it wharf/harbor side rats den except neater and cleaner. Dark and moody in appearance but also warm and welcoming with a very friendly and welcoming help staff. Service was very good overall and the bar offers roughly between 10-15 different DFH(dogfish head) brews on tap. For an appetizer we ordered the "Fries, Rings, and Chips" and for $6 they don't skimp you out I was more than satisfied until my main dish arrived. For dinner I ordered jambalaya since I love the stuff to death, but at $17 you hesitate just a little. Now, if you like spicy and love jambalaya DON'T for seventeen dollars their jambalaya was worth every penny and more some of the best I've EVER Had. So if your in the area and enjoy great food and unique and different beers than DFH will not disappoint.

Great selection of Dogfish Head (obviously), but no 120 minute IPA... Food ok, but nothing special.

Great atmosphere in this two story building. Rustic look with nice Dogfish Head posters hung all over. A bit plain, but in a good way. Not cluttered like some places.

Quality is excellent. Both in beer and food. The food compliments the beer wonderfully. Try the crab dip!

Selection is good. For me I consider it great, and I love DFH beer. The Chicory Stout was out, which I was disappointed about. Can't fault them though. A good beer goes quick.

The food was really good as well. My parents enjoyed it which is a compliment as my Mom can be hard to please.

Value was great as well. Not to high priced, and there were both cheap and expensive beer choices.

My only knock is on the service which was a little slow. Really it was our server. She wasn't bad, just not fast or attentive.

I will be going back to this place for sure!
