Real solid brewpub. Beer was delicious (of course, its DFH). Food was well priced and good. Service was fantastic.

Went to DAH on a Tuesday night thinking it would not be crowded, turns out they are having a fundraiser for a local elementary school, so the place was packed with adults and small children. Nonetheless, our waitress was prompt and attentive, and quickly took care of our drink orders. In spite of the hectic environment and crowd, our food... More

This is not a "fine dining" restaurant but rather a "beer and burger" joint. Fairly large and noisy with multiple TV's located within a strip mall. If you like beer this is your place. Menu was mainly pizza and burgers. I had the salmon ($18) and it was excellent. Served with mashed red potatoes and cauliflower. Service was good and... More

The food is always excellent. The Chesapeake pizza with crab and asparagus is extraordinary. And you will have a hard time choosing among their many specialty burgers. There is a meal selection that is bound to please everyone in your group. And the beer...it goes without saying that it is the best! Prices are reasonable, service is exceptional, atmosphere is...

Went here for dinner on the recommendation of the hotel. Hubbey loved his steak mac and cheese and I had the brisket. Portions were huge, who needs 10oz of meat then mashed potatoes and green beans. while we didn't have room for dessert the people behind us did and they looked really good and big enough for two. Price of... More

Had a coupon so visited this restaurant for the first time. Tasty ahi tuna and wood-baked salmon, both totally fresh, made for delicious main courses. They were accompanied by good rice and overly salty mashed red-skinned potatoes respectively. Both also came with steamed broccoli and cauliflower, unseasoned and bland. Good service and outstanding fish at a fair but not really... More

We've been going to Dogfish regularly for years and have our favorites, such as the turkey-avocado club sandwich, but enjoy the seasonal treats that the management affords like the roasted artichokes. We are older patrons and enjoy going to Dogfish during the week at mid afternoon when activities are slow and the service quick. Love the 90 minute IPA! Pick... More
