Recommend this restaurant after new ownership moved in. The lunch sandwiches are very good as is the value. Breakfast is also served all day, but we have only had the sandwiches.

I was reluctant to try the "new" Dawn House. Still remember the days that Bill owned it and it was such a delight. I'm so glad my wife and son and I tried it for lunch earlier this week. The food, service and décor were a pleasant surprise. I understand it is under new ownership. I wish the new owners... More

I called in a take out order because I've heard how good it is since opening back up. I ordered a deli dog but was informed that they are no longer on the menu so I just went with the regular hotdog. They were just bland boiled hotdogs, the chili was very bland also. The fries were pretty good but... More

This is the first visit since the remodel. The menu has changed but still has some of the old staples. Had the breakfast special of eggs,grits,sausage...substituted a biscuit for toast. Very good. Eggs cooked the way requested. Will go back.

Was unsure after ready reviews but people can be unfair so we gave it a try. Glad we did! It was great! (To the person who complained about the styrofoam plates and plastic utensils -you went to eat at a place that's called the dwag house - were you expecting china? ) I wish people would be real when reviewing-so...

Food was great, but I feel the price of drinks are a bit much. The price of food was quite reasonable . The atmosphere was very nice, family friendly. We will go back.

I had heard that the Dawg House was under new management, and it had actually closed for a while for renovations. But I heard it had opened and was glad to go there. When we walked in, the first thing that struck me was how nice the place looked. There's now a counter you can sit at, as well as... More

The. Dawg House has a very easy access right on Beach Drive. It doesn't look like much either on the outside or the inside, but it totally deserves its reputation for being worth a stop. Pleasant wait staff and good standard breakfast foods and excellent hot dogs.

I used to eat there quite a bit but I won't be going back. On my last visit I noticed the prices went up and the food quality had changed. They went to cheaper quality of food.
