Can't remember when I last had raisen pie, but the Dog House, devoted to tradition, was able to oblige. Warmed up, with a scoop of ice cream, it was just the way I remembered it from many years ago. The coffee is no big deal, but who cares?

We have been coming to Duncan for many years now and this restaurant is still a family favorite! It is a very busy place which also tells you something about it as it is popular with the locals and those visiting the area! The food, no matter what meal you have is always wonderful, the service is outstanding, the prices... More

Big servings, but they offer lighter servings which is great. I was hungry and ordered the salsibury steak the server advised me taking the light portion which I am glad she did as it was the perfect size. It was great. My husband ordered the curried prawns but it came as curried chicken so he sent it back. Unfortunately they... More

Every time without fail I stop at the Dog House Family Restaurant in Duncan for either Breakfast, Lunch or a Supper. This is an excellent restaurant serving good food for a reasonable price. Well presented, tasty and good value for your dollar. Well done to owners.

Pretty much what you'd expect from a family diner, but one with really good food. I had breakfast, my husband had lunch and neither of us were disappointed. We stopped in briefly on our way through town, looking for a lunchtime hidden gem and were not disappointed. Very busy with a little wait, and staff were friendly and accommodating. Food... More

With prompt service, large servings, great big pot of coffee for the table, Dog House delivers on its promise. I had the beef taco salad and asked to half the cheese which they did. Would I have like to have a few more veggies, maybe some green onions sprinkled on top...yeah that would have been nice. But it was fresh... More

There are way too many things on this menu. It makes it hard to choose. Plus, you have to wonder how many items could be fresh. However, one thing is for certain, a place with this many sandwiches and burgers should have excellent fries. I don't think my dog would have eaten these fries. Yes, the staff are awesome and...
