Still missing Bill!

Excellent vegetable soup and hot dogs. But somehow the Dawg House still isn't the same without Bill, the founder. Many people used to fly in for lunch at Bill's when it was by the airport, but they can't in the new location. Still and all, the food is consistently good and when you need a hot... read more

We have eaten at the Dawg House for fifteen years but had our last meal there today. I am not sure what is going on but there are different people working there every time we go and it is worse every time we go. Today was the final straw. We waited over 30 minutes for two hotdogs. No explanation, no... More

Pretty much what you would expect from a place that is popular with locals, nothing fancy, but clean with good cooking. Breakfast is dependably good, and if you like biscuits, they are really good. At lunch you can get a good sandwich, burger or hot dog, and surprisingly very good home made soup and chili.

Stopped here for lunch on a whim and are so glad we did! It's a small, local place, nothing fancy, but the food is very good. Burgers and hot dogs are great, as are the French fries and onion rings. Definitely worth a stop! Disappointed we didn't go back for breakfast the next day...

It is hard to mess up breakfast. Tasteless sausage served on Styrofoam plates and plastic silverware. Not worth the trip

This is a small booth style restaurant. Locals stop here for a quick burger, hot dog and fries. They do offer daily specials. Nothing fancy.

Best dawgs on the beach. Small, wonderful service, family atmosphere and they serve a great breakfast too. It is a local favorite, so meet your friends there!

On our way into Ocean Isle for vacation on a Saturday morning, we were looking for a place to stop and have breakfast. We came upon the Dawg House and decided to stop in. It was an excellent stop. Very good breakfast. Very fair priced. Friendly service. No complaints. Would return.

Worst hot dog I've ever eaten - mushy meat boiled dog, water logged bun, practically inedible. Order chili cheese with onions. Chili is the common kind used in this area but not what I would call chili & the cheese was like melted Cheez Whiz poured on top. Go to Beaches instead where at least the hot dogs are grilled!
