“Can you say AMAZING and ECLECTIC?”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

We love the Dog! You do have to plan ahead to get a table during the winter season, but during summer you're good to go most of the time (but that's true of most of Florida restaurants in the heat of summer). We ALWAYS have the Gorgonzola Salad (shared by 2-4), it's huge and delicious. We ALWAYS have the waffle fries and onion rings - they are consistently spectacular. Then it's a crap shoot - will it be the Fish Rueben, the Crispy Fish Sandwich, Hot Dog or ... so many choices, so little time... Never ever disappointing in any way. Service (once you are seated) is fast and friendly. Food is always fresh and well prepared. Daily specials are worthy of consideration. Ambience is very Key West Beach Shack, so very casual attire is the most appropriate. This is a "must visit" place for all company who visit any time of year. Can you tell? We love the Dog!

“causal florida restaurant, great sea food”
Reviewed July 15, 2011

This small outdoor restaurant is a great place to go before or after you hit the beach. It is family friendly with a large selection on the menu. The tuna salad melt sandwich did NOT come from a can... I was made from fresh tuna. It's my new favorite place to eat.

“We Love Dune Dog”
Reviewed June 15, 2011

We have been eating at Dune Dog for years and continue to love this place. It has a great relaxed atmosphere and is very casual. We find reasons to go to Jupiter so we can eat at Dune Dog. The food is always great, especially the grilled vegetables. The staff is friendly and many of them have been there for years. There is usually a wait, so it is best to go at an off time to avoid a long wait. It is outdoor seating but somehow even in the summer it never really seems that hot.

“Laid back florida”
Reviewed June 13, 2011

The hotdogs are always amazing. I always get the Chicago dog and waffle fries. Yummy! My daughter loves the grilled veggies. It always a little warm there though. Its an open restaurant with only ceiling fans. Lots of heat of the kitchen for sure. I don't know how the wait staff does it. Food is though. Don't go on a hot day.

“Best lunch spot in Jupiter”
Reviewed May 22, 2011

I have been to the Dog many times and I have never been disappointed. If you go a little late for lunch there usually no wait. At any rate, sit at the bar, order a beer or soft drink from Mary (terrific), GET THE CHILI with the works and any one of the signature hot dogs. You are sitting in an open air restaurant with people of all ages mostly listening to Jimmy Buffet music, can't be beat. I have even been there in the cold of January but they had heaters. Just go
