I like to ask the people in the shops where they recommend to eat. Fried clams & clam strips was Top Dog. Lightly battered & perfectly fried. Friendly staff. Next time we try the dogs. Not a lot of seating but the food is well...More

Even though it was lunch time on a busy Saturday peak season, service was friendly, quick and each person greeted you with a smile. I was just grabbing something quick to bring back to our rental. But the menu was amazing, not just basic burgers...More

We wanted to get the clam bellies, and based on the reviews we ordered them here. We also ordered a clam chowder. We ordered the onion rings. The clam chowder was good, but the coating on the bellies and the onion rings had no flavor....More

You must try their coney sauce. It is definitely unusual. Corn is mixed in with the sauce and the buns are grilled. I highly recommend it.

Excellent dogs! Excellent clam strips, great staff! Good Beer on tap if so desired. The Purebred meal deal kept my 11 year old son alive during our recent week on the neck. The bad dog (2) hits my spot every time. The place is great....More

These are good dogs with great and inventive toppings. I recommend the Boston Terrier (yes they all have cute names like that, it's adorable). There's a little seating outside but you can also eat while you walk out to the jetty.

Great hot dogs, most named after dog breeds. The place is small but reasonable space given the location. Staff was super friendly, it was clean and great for a quick bite.
