Atmosphere - This restaurant is right int he middle of the gigantic mall at Arundel Mills. I don't like malls, going to DuClaw was the trade for me going to the mall at all with girlfriend. So, I might be harsh here. The music was pretty awful. People are visible walking around outside The place is small. The decor is simple (in a modern sense), but it is fitting. The seats of the booth we were seated in moved to reveal smashed drywall and wires. I guess I didn't like the atmosphere much at all.
Quality - The offerings of DuClaw are varied and what I had, the Old Flame (an old ale) and Venom (APA) were both pretty good, particularly the latter.
Service - Our waiter was nice and helpful. My beers came filled almost to the brim off of the tap with only a tiny room for head. Food arrived promtly. No complaints here. Granted they were about as busy as a ski resort in Equador when we came, so I can't talk about how they fair when more crowded.
Selection - Well they don't seem to have much beer aside from their own offerings and macros. However, the variety of their offerings is diverse enough to create a decent variety. Besides, who would go to DuClaw to try a pint of Clipper City beer?
Food - What I had was great! I had a portebello sandwich and it was delicious. My girlfriend got nachoes and they were covered in that disgusting yellow goop that is passed off as cheese. They seemed to have done *something* to it, because it didn't taste that gross. The dessert, Vesuvius Cake I believe, was delicious.
Value - The pints seemed to be around the range of 3.50 - 4.00. Quite reasonable if you ask me. The food was not expensive either. Two meals, a dessert and two beers under $30 is reasonable.
