“Great food, great people!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

We love, love the lobster rolls! I crave the fish sandwich often. And the fish tacos are delectable! They also have shakes that are a perfect compliment to the meal.

Lisa and Scott(the owners) are warm and friendly, making you feel right at home!

“Great restaurant in Ruskin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

While fishing in Ruskin with my father we found The Dog House and More. We ended up eating there 3 times it was so good. Scott and Lisa are very friendly people and they can really cook some good food.

“Fish & Onion Rings yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

During snowbird season the Fish place down the road is so packed that sometimes we just turn around. Drove by this place but the name doesn't give away what they truly have. Thought it was hot dogs and sandwiches. Craving fish I was pleasantly surprised I could order some and onion rings and both were excellent and a good value. It was raining so we couldn't sit down like the other place since they only have tables with umbrellas... but they whooped up our order to-go and driving 20mins. back to Wimauma we were worried food would be soggy & cold but it wasn't!

My wife is from Massachusetts, and she is always looking for great cold-water seafood. The Fried Ipswich clams here are Great, and the “CHOWDA” was fantastic!!!
