i have been to this particular dogfish head quite a few times now and this is review is from a cultivation of my visits.

when you walk into the place, the interior design is definitely funky. quirky shit hangs from the walls and ceilings. there are 2 large garage doors rolled up in the dining room. overall the atmosphere is unique and sticks with the "off-centered" design behind DF beers.
for the most part, service is pretty good. throughout my visits over the past year, i have actually noticed a lot of the same servers/bartenders. this means servers that are knowledgeable about the menu/beers, which doesnt always happen in this area.
beer selection is solid. most of the time they have all of DF's year-round offerings on draft as well as whatever is seasonal. they also have bottles of some of their finer offerings (be careful cause they jack the bottle prices up significantly! ($23 for an 12 oz. 18 month old bottle of WWS)). apparently sometimes they run out of some of their core beers (notably 60 and 90 min), but i have never experienced this tragedy.
i have still yet to have a bad food experience here. the wood-grilled pizzas are great, the burgers are good, there is a big salad selection, and the sandwiches are really good. i have never had anything off the entrees or dessert section, but im sure they are solid.
they beers are reasonably priced ($5.50 a pint, $6.75 for 90 min snifter) for the area. if you stick to the salads/burgers/sandwiches and only have a couple beers your tab shouldnt be much higher than $25.
overall i like coming to this place for some tasty grub and to grab a pint of something that may be harder to find in bottle or on tap at other draft-houses in the area.

Beer was awesome, and we had great service. The only downer was the fish in our fish and chips. Not very special. The chips were great as was the chipotle tartar sauce. Would go back, but try some other dish.

I go here a few times a month and never get tired of it. Try the Chesapeake Pizza with crab- it's delicious. Nachos and burgers are spot on. DFH beers are also quality, and their beer app is usually updated so you can see what's on tap!

Stopped in on a Friday night, place was packed...seemed to be a good sign. When we sat down, we were not disappointed. The food selection was good, but nothing out of the ordinary for a brewpub. Likewise the beer selection was decent, though it did not seem to feature everything currently available from DFH at the micro/craft brew store. The quality of the food was good. The beer was, well, DFH...it was excellent.

Kid friendly, busy place, but a nice vibe. Service was good, but not overbearing. We will definitely go back.

Great place! I'm from NC and to find this place in Falls Church was awesome! I was in town for a concert in near-by Fairfax, and happened upon it. Have always been a fan of Dogfish Head so we decided to stop in. Great tap selection and food was good. Staff was friendly. Went on Valentines Day 2013, and they gave my girlfriend a rose. Will definitely return.

Visited for dinner and beers with some friends on a Saturday night, which surprisingly wasn't too crowded.

Atmosphere is fine, standard restaurant pub with brick dominating the architecture. Dogfish Head swag on the walls. There's a bar, and the view into the kitchen in fairly open. Service from the waitress was good, no complaints.

Beer was the normal Dogfish Head quality so everything was tasty. But after being to the original brewpub, I was a bit disappointed that they didn't have as many experimental beers on tap. Only one that wasn't a normal year round or seasonal offering.

Food was good and prices were reasonable for the DC area.
