I finally got my SiL (aunt to a former employee) to come here for lunch as we worked on a home project. She fell in love with it at once. Mace was the sole server, but she did her normal fantastic job. My SiL wanted...to do the onion rings, which we split. She had the Kosher Barking Dog with tea, while I had my normal Diet Coke and one of their regular specials. She raved over everything, from the view to the rings and their dip, to the dog. I think she will return.More

Just moved here and been here twice. Very good hot dogs, sandwiches, and hush puppies. Great location on the water as well. Staff can be curt but doesn’t take away from the good food.

I usually get their catfish and chips but they were out of catfish that day. The shrimp poor boy was delicious. Order extra hush puppies to go for a treat later. Great little place off the beat'n path.

Our guide on the Hampton Cruise suggested that this place had great HotDogs. We were in the mood for just that so we decided to give it a try. It was only about a mile from the Cruise 'station' so a quick easy trip there....We chose to get carryout. They were very accommodating. The staff were very nice. The food was excellent. We would go back again!More

We usually go to the one in Poquoson. Consistently great food. Love the different types of combinations with hot dogs... love the bbq and slaw on hot dog and the baked beans and mustard on hot dog. Waitresses are friendly as well. Burgers are good...too.More

Kinda of a hole in the wall joint, in the good way. Very friendly staff and the food was good at a great price. Lots of different dogs give u an excuse to keep going back. They even have a Taylor Pork Roll sandwich (for...u yankee folks who like that stuff ;-)More

If you are looking for quick casual place for food, then this is a good option. Watching the boats go by. The food is basic and simple but good and plentiful. From hot dogs, salads to burgers and more. Served in trays, beer/soda in cans...its basic but good !More

Service was the best. Mackenzie did a great job! The crab was the best we've ever had. Comfortable, casual atmosphere. Wanted to go back for their famous hot dogs, but didn't make it. Ah well. There's always next time!

It’s a must go if you like hotdogs! We tried 6 different dogs and non were a disappointment. Oh yeah, and the banana pudding was great too!
