So I thought we were due in DC for a concert but I got it wrong- it was a week later. Still we made it down there, and our hotel was a ten-minute walk from the Dogfish Alehouse in Falls Church.

There we walked on a Saturday night at around 11pm, too cold for my short-sleeve shirt. As I got in to the jawn, I ordered a Palo Santo to warm me up.

The draft list is great but mighty pricey, and includes 17 taps such as 60, 61, 90, Bitches, Theobroma, Midas, Burton, Palo, Black-n-Tan (Chicory+90) and the not-listed Claus (Palo+90, a local exclusive apparently named after a regular). I was shocked when the bill came and I saw the $9.50-tag for draft brews. WOW! Serious sticker shock…

The food menu could use some work to make it more interesting, a little more veggie-leaning and overall “better”. As it is, it is mostly calorie-heavy pub classics and pizzas. We had the crab-cheese dip and it was delicious, but a total fat bomb. The pizza was tasty, but hard to digest late at night.

Service was super friendly and knowledgeable, and the atmosphere was just right. A big place, it was almost empty when we visited. I was worried the live music would be too loud as it typically is at the Rehoboth pub but that was not the case. I would definitely visit again when in the area, but maybe stick to one beer or try to hit happy hour for lower prices.

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.
