The Doghouse is the place to be!

It actually looks like a doghouse! Cute and quaint. Orders are placed at the window then you grab a seat at one of the outside picnic tables. Friendly service, great food! Italian sausage or linguica with onions & peppers, the Junkyard dog, Maryland crab cakes, lobster rolls and fried dough. Even a... read more

Not just your average hot dog stand. Everything from soup to lobster rolls and hot dogs in between. Great fries too! And they make a great lime aid drink that is way better than lemon aid. And the best thing about the Dog House is our dog can eat there too. She absolutely loves their hot dogs! Don't miss this... More

Nothing says summer like hot dogs, picnic tables and fresh air. The Dog House has it all - and the prices ate very reasonable. Two of us are for under $20. After you've burned yourself out on seafood, swing by. You won't be disappointed.

Fun idea for outside eating. Neither the food nor the menu is as good as it used to be.it changed owners a few seasons ago. Was one of my "GoTo Spots" with my grand children. Very friendly and nice family who ran it are missed.

This is the cutest little stop for great food. They call it the Dog House, but everything they serve is really good, including their Lobster Bisque. Their fries are like being at a State Fair. Outside dining on picnic tables only. Close to beaches. They also have a huge selection of condiments for the dogs. Very friendly staff. We met... More

If you like hot dogs - this is THE PLACE! Get 'em the way you like 'em, or don't get 'em at all! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because they're not open very late (8pm), and they're not open year round - understandably! It's cold outside at picnic tables after Oct.!

The best lobster roll so far -- I've sampled them in all maritime provinces and most New England states. Yum Yum!!! Bill C. provided wonderful local color and recommended spots to visit during our stay on the Cape. We checked out most of them and were not disappointed.

The perfect place for a summer treat. Lots of dog choices. Be sure to try split dogs. We had dogs and fries but everything else looked great. They even have fried dough. Lots of outdoor seating and efficient service including beepers to let you know when order is up

The title pretty much says it all - this place has outdoor seating only (picnic tables) and makes a delicious hot dog. Very convenient place to bring kids. I noticed some other options on the menu - burgers (including a veggie burger), grilled chicken, fish sandwiches, etc. I will definitely return since most hints of healthy eating habits tend to...
