My fiancee and I stopped after moving to the area. The overall atmosphere is pretty good. More of a restaurant layout and felt comfortable. Food was good as well. They seem to have pretty good specials for different days of the week.
The main event for us was the beer. They have a good selection of beers that vary depending on the day. They also have a few that are brewery/alehouse only. Server seems knowledgeable. Quality of beer was great! Seasonal beers were very good and you can taste any beer you wanted to see if you wanted a pint.

I attended the New Years Eve pairing dinner and was so impressed. The food was amazing. The beers were full pours for all five courses, including 18% Fort. All this for $65 in the DC area and that's a hell of a deal.

Blown away, we took my cousin there for his birthday to get some quality beers. That was of course the easy part and expected. What was unexpected was the food. The Jambalaya was top shelf which was very surprising. My favorite dish and this was as good as it gets. The waiter was very attentive and we talked a lot of beer which is always good. Outstanding and a place that I will attend whenever possible.

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!
