“Dooger's Is Our Family's Favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2008

We own a vacation home in Seaside and Dooger's is our family's favorite restaurant. Many of the servers know us by name as they are friendly and obviously enjoy their job. The food has always been wonderful. The clam chowder is my favorite in town (and I've tried them all). The crab cakes and prawns are excellent. Our daughter from North Carolina ordered steamer clams four times during our stay over the 4th of July! We find the ambiance inviting, especially in the off season when it is not as crowded. Duing the summer months there is always a line of people waiting for a table. Why? Because Dooger's has a reputation as a great place to eat! I have difficulty understanding the negative feedback in some of the reviews. It is as if those people were at an entirely different restaurant. I highly recommend Dooger's for consistently good seafood, very clamy clam chowder, homemade desserts, good beer and wine selection, and always friendly service,

“Don't go!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2008

Save your urge for seafood for a better restaurant, i.e. Shiloh's (really good). Had the combination cajun style which is okay if you like your seafood swimming in grease. Another at our table was the cod fish and chips; amazingly flavorless fish (Cod?!) with no seasoning, etc. Fries and local brews were fine, however.

“Consistently good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2007

We ate here 8/9/07. This is one of ~3 restaurants with this name in the area. They feature a variety of fish and seafood, prepared in many ways: fried, sautéed, baked, etc. This place is consistently excellent. They use fresh oil for frying with no hint of any other flavors "invading" what you've ordered; and a minimal amount of breading, so you really know what you are eating! Lisa is a wonderful waitress, knowledgeable and fun…if you can be in her section, you'll enjoy excellent service. Desserts are great too.
