I have been here about 10 times and it never disappoints! Be sure to try the Randall, or at least inquire as to what they are pulling through it. Yesterday I had the Punkin through cinnamon stix and vanilla beans. I wasn't sure the Punkin could be improved, but it was damn tasty, the vanilla and cinnamon really added some complexity to this already well crafted offering.

The beer speaks for itself. Standard Dogfish offerings, with the limited runs mixed in. Maybe not exotic as Rehoboth, but always good beer. The food is also right on. I have yet to be disappointed, and I have tried most of the menu.

They have some swag for purchase in a small giftshop, and they seem to give a lot of it away as well. I guess I just hit it on the right nights or something, but I have scored a t-shirt, beer coosy, pint glass, and some kind of dogfish puzzle thing.

The staff is always OUTSTANDING. No matter how busy or hectic they are, they are always hustling and attentive, service with a smile.

TVs usually have the local DC sports, or national game on.

I will be back, and you should stop in, worth the trip.

Great location, on par with DFH in Rehoboth. Atmosphere is above the original position, maybe because the location is newer. DFH Rehoboth does have the edge on Vibe, since its located two blocks from the beach and your dog is always welcome on the deck. Food rocks, and is worthy of the high quality beer selections. You can always find the DF standard releases on tap, but their limited and seasonal releases are the best part. Too bad you can't get growler fills for the limited releases.

real fun place. food was decent beer selection was great, got to try a couple beers that are unavailable in my neck of the woods. only downside was the cost of to go beers. asking $20ish for beers like import, wws, and 120 i was expecting house beers to be a little more affordable but still a great place.
