In town for a wedding and went out from the hotel to try something different for Breakfast, we should have stayed in. Not knowing anyplace we tried the first place we came to which was here. There were several cars outside so decided to try...it. Were seated promptly and ordered Coffee (Which was the best part of the meal). I ordered French Toast and Bacon and the Wife had Biscuits and Gravy with a Scrabbled Egg. While waiting the Waitress brought over a jug of syrup for the toast. It was cold which wasn't a good sign. We got our ordered in good time. My French was about as cold as the syrup I put on it. I had two bites and ate the a Bacon, which was almost burnt crisp. The Wife's Gravy and Eggs were hot, but the Biscuit was Hard and Cold. When the waitress came back we told her of the meal to which we got an "Oh sorry" and walked away. It was also way over priced even for a tourist town. Since we were on vacation, we know we will never be coming back.More

Ended up with The Dough Roller because I just couldn’t figure out what I was in the mood for and some restaurants stop doing take out at 6pm or so. Got a small (10in) pizza and a small Caesar side salad. Cost $18. A little...pricey, but it is the beach. It was good and nice and hot. Salad was fresh. Nice that they had plastic utensils, napkins and paper plates for the taking.More

Probably the best pizza on the eastern shore. We eat here every summer multiple times and the consistently is always above the other pizza restaurants. Their breakfast is also very good.

Social distancing was definitely in place. The restaurant as always is spotless regardless of the pandemic. Service is always on point and be prepared to share. The portions are very generous. Would recommend.

Pancakes were fluffy and tasty, but sausage was smoked and tough, and this is not my preference for 'pigs in a blanket.' There were other breakfast and lunch items which looked appealing...would visit here again.

We always go to the dough roller when we visit OCMD. The staff is friendly and accommodating. The prices are reasonable.

Beware, they do not serve breakfast all day like the web searches suggest -unless you are only looking for pancakes. That is the only breakfast item they sell during lunch or dinner times. I called from the parking lot and asked about the wait. We...were told no wait - but it took 30 minutes to be seated!!! 3/4 of the restaurant was dark and only 4 tables were being used while several groups stood outside waiting. I will never come to the ocean gateway location again.More

We stopped here for lunch on our vacation and the place exceeded our expectations! We both had cheesesteaks and fries and the food was VERY good. The place is nice and clean, has good prices, friendly staff and great service. Would recommend!

This eatery is usually our go-to breakfast place for winter beach trips. The breakfasts are priced on the high end but thats the beach anytime. I had the Pigs in a blanket breafast, while tasty I was disappointed at the cheap of cutting a sausage...link in half lengthwise and wrapping it with the pankcake...come on, for $11 you can give a WHOLE sausage link! My partner got the Little Roller consisting of 2 pancakes, one egg and one sausage and described it as tasty and just the right amount. Our server was pleasant and efficient. Most Dough Rollers close for the winter but the one at 41st St is Open.More
