It had been a year since we were in Duncan, and wanted to try the Doghouse again. Mid-morning on a Thurrsday and it was packed. Mostly locals - so that tells you how good this place is. Eggs Benny, bacon pancakes ...everything we tried was very good. Staff are warm and customer focused. Don't pass this place up if you... More

Good service and food. However 15 minute back up at the front counter to pay. This could be easily fixed by allowing your servers to take paymemt at the tables. No one wants to wait that long yo pay!!

This restaurant has been there for ever. It is a new building but has been in business because it is a good old comfort food restaurant. An ideal big breakfast place.

We always stop in at this restaurant when driving through Duncan, it's a favourite but the last few visits have not been that great. On our last visit we stopped in quite late and it was about an hour before closing, I ordered a combo burger which even had a hot dog on it, it was quite good and I... More

We quit going to the doghouse in 2011 and only went because my dad liked it, but I finally said I couldn't eat there anymore. We had out of town family visiting over the holidays and they suggested we give it a try. I figured there must be something I would like and we agreed. I chose the Asian Noodle... More

Went in for breakfast. An extensive menu for breakfast,lunch and dinner. Had a coffee and full house omelet. Too much food to finish. Reasonable prices. The carafe of coffee left at my table for refills. Super service. A very nice diner experience.

Best Eggs Benedict I've had at a restaurant in years! Eggs seemed farm fresh and done perfectly! Home made hash browns were a nice surprise. Friendly efficient service! Will definitely be back!

Good food-Good service-Good atmosphere....great experience and not too pricey. If you have to go to Duncan (I don't know why anyone would except to eat here) or if you are passing by to go up Island. Stop here to eat. We always do.
