Good HomeStyle Food!

The food here is always good, not fancy but GOOD homestyle cooking and selection. Great bakery items ie: pies are yummy! They always have good specials and the turkey dinner is very good. Not a fancy or romantic place but if your looking for large portions, good food and reasonable priced food go... read more

We were driving through Duncan on our way to ski at Mt Washington and we were starved, I've heard the doghouse was good for years but never had the opportunity to stop and eat. My family of four wasn't to happy with the lineup at the front door, but I knew right away that there must be a lineup for... More

In searching the internet for places to eat in Duncan, I saw where on one site it was mentioned that this restaurant was gluten free friendly...NOT! They did not have a separate gluten free menu which a couple of the other local places we were at had. Options for me were limited to say the least. My partner had liver... More

We had never heard of the Doghouse and were in Cowichan for a hockey tournament. It was recommended to us as the place to go for fresh home cooked meals and we were not disappointed. I called ahead and requested two tables of 8 as we had a large hockey group with us. The staff were very accommodating and had... More

Good family restaurant. Packed house so expect a bit of a wait. Huge huge portions. Kind of pricy if you ask me but food portions were huge, but no great flavour, taste or presentation. Restaurant in a strip mall not a destination restaurant. Basic Burger and fries $16.00 plus taxes. Would drive by this place and head to Wendy's down... More

Took a chance and stopped at the Dog House with our daughter and son in law only to find a significant lineup. However we were assured the wait would not be too long and we were seated within 10 minutes. Upon looking around the staff were literally at a run trying to keep up but appeared to be winning. Our...

As someone who has multiple food allergies, eating out can be a huge challenge! One always feels awkward and slightly guilty for asking a restaurant to accommodate ... yet, one has to eat, right? I was feeling a little nervous about eating out with my family tonight, but was pleasantly surprised by the amazing services at The Doghouse. From the... More

Actually, it was our server who helped to create the fun for us. My daughter and I always engage our servers and make it a part of our dining experience. We had Caesars (drinks) and shared a Ruben sandwich. Nice bread, generous portion of thinly sliced corned beef and good fries. I think I had sweet potato fries. We then... More

Ate there last night with my wife. The servings were large and the food was good. I had a club sandwich with clam chowder. The sandwich was huge but made with ham and turkey cold cuts. The clam chowder was very good ( a clam in every mouthfull ). My wife had liver and onions which see said was very... More
