This is a good place to visit when visiting Rockport. Creative toppings for hot dogs. Something different and tasty. Nice picnic tables outside overlooking the water. I'll be back.

Thank goodness I do not have a Top Dog near me because I would be there all the time. If you like hot dogs then you have to go to Top Dog of Rockport. Top Dog has amazing dogs, you can have them steamed or grilled. I had mine steamed with sauerkraut....so yummy. If you are in Rockport stop and... More

Regular hot dogs but topped with creative toppings and cleverly named. Picnic table in the back affords harbor views. Food is fine, but the rating is for the entire experience.

It was our first time going there. We were shocked in the vast amounts of choices for hot dogs. I however got the chowder and my family the Boston Terrier. They said it tasted amazing.

We love fried clams and they are just fantastic here -- while the clam strips are excellent, the whole clams are out of this world good.

The clams and the clam strips were delicious. Tasty and not too oily. We ate there twice! Highly recommend.

Top Dog is a regular destination on our yearly visits. Hot dogs are really good and the kids love all the toppings to choose from...including macaroni and cheese! Their clam strips are also great and worth the price. The staff is friendly and the owner will chat with you while he's grilling up a dog if you are able to... More

Arriving in Rockport after 9pm, our choices for dinner were limited. Any other day I would have passed this place up thinking they only served hot dogs but it is lucky we didn't. We ordered the lobster roll with fries and cole slaw and it was fantastic. The lobster meat was so fresh and the bun was grilled perfectly. The... More

Quite a few good reviews here for Top Dog. Stopped by Rock Port recently during our visit to Boston. We had fried clams a year or so ago at the Clam Box in Ipswich, that was fantastic and we had the urge to have East Coast clams again as soon as possible and was recommended to try Top Dog. Rock...
