I loved the corn dog!! So good. The batter was fresh and French fries were so good. Lots of sauces to choose from. Cold drinks, pretty fast service. Friendly staff.

Great dogs. Had an old fashioned dog. They had plenty of condiments AND dipping sauces. The fries were delicious and plenty of them. We’ve been to Bodega Bay lots of times and this was our first time eating here. The food was hot, the service...was outstanding. We will hit this place again.More

We got here at just before 6:00 and thought they were closed when one of the employees came out and waved us down to let us know they were still open. Everyone was super friendly and smiles, even though they were closing in less than...5 minutes. The food was good, no complaints at all. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants a quick bite to eat.More

The Dog House has been a fixture of Bodega Bay for decades. I play golf up in Bodega and lunch at the Dog House after the round is the highlight of the day. Great dogs, burgers and outstanding bottomless fresh fries.

We’ve been making this a “must stop” experience since 1984. For the best burgers and hot dogs anywhere, this is THE place to stop. Fresh ‘all you can eat’ fries are a plus. Corn dogs that taste like the state fair. Add your condiments to...your taste. Additions to your meal can be diverse - chili, malts & shakes too! Service is fast and plenty of seating inside and out. Enjoy the view of the bay too!More

Friend flew into Santa Rosa airport and picked up a pamphlet on Bodega Bay since she knew we were going to visit during her trip. We are doggie moms so when we read about the "Dog House" seemed like a natural fit for us. You...need GPS to locate Smith St. which you turn down and then go into strip mall. This is not on the beaten path so you have to do some scouting. A NO frills order then go sit spot. Full condiment bar makes it easier to get your order "your way." She had cheeseburger which she said was really delicious. Me, a gardenburger, which was charred on the grill and ONE OF THE BEST VEGGIE BURGERS I'VE EVER HAD! Warning - it may have tasted good because they cook on the same grill as the meat so hardcore veggie people better ask about this FIRST if that may be a deal breaker for you. Under $10 for a great veggie burger - fully loaded and fries. Hard to beat in Northern Cal dollars. Great onion rings with enough to take home and reheat the next day. A definite place to return to if in the area. Great view of the ocean so we watched parasailers as we ate. May need a jacket to sit outside depending on the day.More

Haven't had a grilled/roasted hot dog is ages. It was perfect and I'll be back for more. Lots of condiments to add to the doggie and the french fries did not bother the gut at all! Friendly atmosphere, busy little place, very casual and reasonably...priced.More

We had burgers which were excellent. Great flavor and friendly service. Side bar with anything you could wish to add to a burger. Easy parking and access from the highway. Funky old signs all over the walls. Hand cut fries. Seemed like a lot of...locals got take out.More

No complaints here. The hot dogs were quite good, and extras were all quite tasty. Staff was friendly. We could have used a little more inside eating area, as it was raining and tables were full inside. Would eat there again.

Advertised all-you-can-eat French fries which came with our garden burgers. The fries were so thick and perfectly cooked and we got a lot with the first serving. The garden burgers were very big and they have a condiments counter with everything you could think of...to choose to add to your meal. Chocolate milk shakes were thick and very chocolaty. The only employee working was very friendly and took the time to tell us about the area. She provided us with a map and pointed out places of interest and things to do.More
