From the outside and when you first walk in the place looks like your basic chain restaurant. Then you run into the chalk board listing all of the Dogfish head beer on tap. You then realize I am in the Dogfish Head world.

The atmosphere was nice with a nice sized bar area, a spread out seating area with a lot of Dogfish head stuff around with a few TV's, nice decor for aa alehouse.

The servers were very friendly and had very good beer knowledge. They were very timely and made numerous checks to make sure you were having a good experience.

The beer selection was good and gave you a very good representation of the Dogfish head brews both on tap and bottled.

The food selection was good, I recommend the spicy calamari and the chicken and shrimp club on dark rye was very good. The menu offered a nice selection of salads, sandwiches and a few entrees.

Over all the quality was good with a decent value. I had a very good experience and will definately stop again. Hopefully the other Dogfish head alehouses are just as good.

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.
