This little shack beside the road is a rare gem. I’ve been eating at Dunton’s since I was a child....many, many moons ago. Gary, the owner, cooks a variety of burgers, hotdogs, and seafood (single orders or platters). There are picnic tables behind Dunton’s, and...More

We stumbled upon this place while navigating around Boothbay Harbor. Grilled hot dogs and buttered grilled rolls were excellent. I had a chili dog and the chili was delicious. Love this place and our chocolate lab did also.

Had I wanted a packaged hot dog I’d have gone to Hannafords and purchased some. Using TA reviews we stopped and it was a BIG disappointment. The dogs are soft and overly salty. The onions offered as a condiment were cut too big to stay...More

Chili dogs - yes! Crab roll- yes! Lobster roll - didn't love it. But the menu is quite extensive for a walk-up (or drive and walk across the street) restaurant with affable staff and plenty of outdoor seating.
