Breakfast here is one of my favorites. I recommend very clean! Sometimes there is a line but that's the only flaw I've found

The hostess wasn't very obliging when asked if you could select your own seat. She wanted us to sit where she put us and when we didn't approve being stuck between a noisy party, she got an attitude. That put a damper on our meal and didn't leave us with warm fuzzies.

We happen upon this restaurant last night, not knowing what to expect. With the name "Dog House" we did not know what to expect. Upon entering the restaurant, one of the first things we noticed was the dessert counter. Large pies, jello, etc. (all looking homemade). Upon being seated, the waitress had our drinks to us in only a few... More

While driving up Vancouver Island from Victoria, we found this place online and checked it out as it was near lunchtime and it had decent reviews. Big mistake. Homey, comfort food is code for barely edible and bland. AND with poor service! Don't know what this place pretends to be as the menu is about 50 pages long which is... More

Reasonable prices but not 'good' food. I had the Seafood Clubhouse. It had that slapped together feel and look. It didn't taste awful but I thought, I can't afford this; better to spend more and actually get a satisfying and nourishing somewhere else. The fries were at best mediocre. What other people are calling "down to earth" food really means... More

Unassuming, but quite large inside, this restaurant has a full menu with tremendous variety. Quick, tasty, basic food with a reasonable price point. Right on the highway so an easy stop heading up or down Vancouver Island.

We ate breakfast at the Dog House when we were in the area 10 years ago, visiting our Canadian friends on their boat. We loved ! So here I am 10 years later, recalling our wonderful trip and this little restaurant. I had my favorite - French toast - and it was great. If we are ever back in the... More

Have been here before and for the price and service and simple fare you can't argue. We have had down to earth simple breakfast food here before and this last trip was no exception. If you are lucky and catch the morning coffee crowd and you are a little curious as to what's going on in Duncan take the chance... More

Husband ordered the steak and prawns special and I had the Clam Chowder and Caesar Salad Combo. Steak was cooked to perfection. I often order the chowder and salad combo, it comes with a piece of garlic toast so as a meal it satisfies. Must comment on the service we received, it was excellent and very attentive but not overly,... More
