Stopped here for food after checking into our hotel. Place was pretty busy for an afternoon, with college football everywhere. Wings were delicious! Staff very friendly.

We went there for dinner while staying in Wildwood for a graduation from USCG boot camp in Cape May, NJ. The waitress was excellent with food selection and helping us pick from the large menu. Great beer choices including local selections on tap. Everyone loved their food especially the burgers and sandwiches. It wasn't too crowded either besides being one... More

Back to Dog Tooth on Thurs. 10NOV around 6:30. 2 adults, 2 teens, 2 tweens. No wait. Decent crowd. Bar was lively. Seated at one of the long tables towards the back of the bar. Brandi was friendly and provided great service. Salmon special was delicious. Grilled just right with a smoky tomato relish on top. Tasty garlic mashed. Asparagus... More

Just a great place to grab a meal! Seems to just be consistently great! They have a great variety of food so everyone can find something on the menu. It's not fancy but it is good! Try it if you are in town!!!

The Dog Tooth is a new find for us and definitely worth the drive from the Crest. We were there during peak beach season and had to wait a very long time but was to be expected. Bar was large and fully stocked, very busy and very loud, but again to be expected. Menu had a great selection of apps,... More

This place was in a clean part of town. We were seated immediately. The service was good. The calamari was a great appetizer. I had the pulled pork sandwich was was ok. My daughter had the chicken strips which were ok. Nothing great...pretty average.

Dogtooth stays consistently great every time I go in. I would give it less than 5 Stars if I thought it deserved it but maybe going down to a 4.5 to a 4.8 would be okay but it definitely deserves at the very least that. This is not my first review of Dogtooth but I will let you know that... More

When you are at the beach during peak season on a Friday night you should pretty well count on a long wait for a table, a fair amount of noise and chaos and maybe a little longer wait for service. That's what we expected and that's what we got, but it was worth every extra minute. The lobster rolls were... More
