“Cute place with beachy decor but food was mediocre.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

Server seemed inconvenienced -- it was crowded and busy for a late lunch. Food bland and ordinary. Sorry to say we won't bother going back. Too many other places to choose from in Jupiter.

“Believe It Or Not...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

the Reuben sandwich is GREAT! Move over corned beef--the Reuben here is offered as grilled white fish. Our server, however, offered a crunchy version (not listed on the menu) made with Panko. The toasted rye, melted Swiss, crunchy fish, sauerkraut & dressing are a winning combination. This sandwich is huge, so be prepared to share. Also on the menu--a crab cake sandwich made with fresh blue crab. The spicy remoulade is served on the side so you can dial your 'zippy factor' to taste. Average slaw & waffle fries--the sandwiches are the stars.

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

Why is it, every time I go here we have to wait. It's because..... They have great food at a bargin price, and most people know about it.

“Totally Awesome, Dude!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

YUM! Best fries and dogs ever. We visited Dune Dog with our family, finally after hearing about it for many years. We had to wait for about 15 minutes for a seat, but that was fine. I had ordered a Chicago Dog, fries, and onion rings. The food was great. It's a cute little, kitschy place with friendly service. Looking forward to going there again on my next trip back to Jupiter! Cute T-shirts too :)

“Great hangout with tropical feel and inventive menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

This is a family staple - you get in to town and you head to Dune Dog. It is literally an oversized hut with sassy quotes painted on the walls and ceilings; it is also a great place to go for fresh, contemporary food. There is something on the menu for every taste: the salads are good, they offer an assortment of hotdog dishes (chili is my fave), they have great fried clams and fish sandwiches, and you cannot beat their daily specials. Lines can be tiresome in season, but don't be surprised if you have a long wait on a hot evening in July as well - this is one place loved by locals and tourists alike.
