When you think you can’t have any more chowder, head to top dog! The hot dogs are delicious and are offered a variety of ways with catchy names. The accompanying fries are perfection. Love this break from the seafood!

Yep - May be hotdogs, but the clam chowder was excellent too. The fact that people were queuing out the door was a good endorsement!!

This place has THE best clams...especially for a hot dog place. Don’t let the menu fool you...TRY THE CLAMS...whole-belly clams at their finest! So tender and sweet. Not greasy at all. The onion rings were great too, hand cut and breaded! YUM-A-RIFIC!!!

Great variety of dogs available, as well as fish etc. Dogs are good quality and very well priced. Beer is good too, as is the music. A great little place to spent a relaxed hour or 2....or 3!

They have sides like french fries and coleslaw, and you can always get a hot dog or lobster salad without the bun I suppose. But they do not offer a gluten-free hot dog roll.
