“What's not to like?”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

We tried the Dog House after reading several reviews on Trip Advisor. The fried shrimp, grilled shrimp, cole slaw and fried onion rings were all excellent. The barbeque also really smelled enticing ... A nice, clean, outdoor venue for this area with friendly owners. We'll definitely go back when we're in the area ... you should try it!

“A Quick Bite”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

This simple outdoor fast food is great for a quick bite. They have a large variety of options and the food is tasty.

It is a small eatery consisting of trailer with an attached canopy and some picnic tables.They specialize it feeding the locals, you won't run into alot of tourists there.

“Favorite local stop!!”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 via mobile

Everything is delicious from when they started with dogs, sandwiches, to BBQ pulled pork, & homemade clam chowder! Originally from my home state in CT, so defiantly love the soft shell crabs, lobster rolls, & chowder.
