Good meal, good value, great service.

We stopped in at the Dog House for lunch on our way down island. The menu has an interesting variety of diner-style items. We ordered a clubhouse sandwich and a BLT and were pleased with our meals. The BLT was loaded with fresh tomatoes, lettuce and lots of crispy bacon. The clubhouse was... read more

plain, plain, plain. The food here is just so bland and boring, it's for old people, or fussy children. Don't waste your time!

So I decided to the dog house for some dessert. I had the chocolate cream pie. And I have to admit it was one of the most revolting things I'd ever eaten. I swear they had baked a store bought crust and put it in the freezer for five months. Before taking it out and plopping a bunch of chocolate... More

we have been here many times for breaky, lunch and dinner. never had a bad meal. It is a family style restaurant with a lot of locals going there. You might have to wait a few minutes for a table but you get to see interesting people, get a first hand look at some of the plates, read about the... More

The Dog House is our fav dining out spot in Duncan. You can't go wrong with your menu choice - it's all good. Don't look for fancy but the food is tasty, plentiful, and reasonably priced. My personal favourite is their curried prawns - ask for it to be served on half rice, half coleslaw. And the half order is... More

The Dog House has a long reputation of affording good, relatively inexpensive food. You won't find any gourmet cooking here, but for a good breakfast this place is hard to beat in Duncan.

The Dog House is a well known and much loved local institution in Duncan. It's been there in the same location for many many years and the menu probably has many of the same items on it. Perfect for families, the atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed. Nothing fancy or pretentious about it. Burgers, Sandwiches, breakfasts and all the comfort food... More

This restaurant has been around for a very long time and I can see why it continues to exist. The food is downhome, plentiful, and good. Our waitress was attentive but not intrusive. Great place.
