This is a small hot dog restaurant right on the water where you can pull your boat up to or park your car. It is small but I found the atmosphere to be fitting and the food was great. There is not much to say there is nothing absolutely fantastic about the place but it is nice after a long... More

My wife and I hadn't been to the Dog since last year and decided to try it again. We both ordered the Barking Dog, kosher style instead of the snappy. Never liked the snappy sound when eating. I ordered two dogs and fries. Loved the fries. Big mistake ordering two dogs though. They were so big I had to take... More

This is a good place to just kick back and relax, and enjoy a casual meal with the family. The wait staff is friendly and attentive. The food is great, and it's a really nice atmosphere right on the water. You don't have to get dressed up, and you don't have to spend a lot of money - perfect!

Cozy waterfront dining, friendly wait staff, good eats. We have been for dinner and lunch, don't go expecting a formal setting! Casual, peaceful, relaxing atmosphere and delicious food choices.

The music was thumping, the waitress was attentive, and the food was hot and good. A nice place to kick back on a summer evening and relax.

I visit the Barking Dog several times a year, usually or a nice work lunch when the weather is nice and sunny. My food orders have always been properly prepared and arrived in a timely fashion. The customer service is phenomenal.

The Barking Dog is situated right off Kecoughtan Road at the Sunset Marina. This is a small little building that you could miss if you weren't looking for it. My parents loved the gator dog and the kids gobbled up the hamburgers. Good portions and a cozy atmosphere. This restaurant is right on the water and offers outdoor seating.

This place is pretty cool...it's hotdogs and burgers but has a relaxing setting on the water. The hotdog I had was good but nothing special. The reason I have it a four instead of a three was that the atmosphere was fun and relaxing....and they served beer!!! I'll be back for a beer and a dog soon......check this place out!

A cool little place right on the water in Hampton. They serve an interesting selection of hotdogs and sausage. It was quite good but definitely not health food. Service is good and to the point. Prices are very reasonable. It gets crowded for lunch, so get there a bit early to beat the rush.

Thank HenHoo
