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.

Great Food, Good Prices & A FULL Carafe of COFFEE! Dined here many times & have NEVER had a bad meal, staff are always friendly & prompt. My favorite breakfast place because you get a carafe of coffee at your table!

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.

We have been going to the Dog House on our way up from Victoria to Parksville every summer for 40 years. It is a Duncan institution. Classic diner food - friendly service. Good value for money.

I stopped in while my van was being serviced nearby. Recommended by the dealership staff. Unusual name had me smiling. Friendly service, a comfortable diner style atmosphere unlike typical fast food franchises. Best part was I never felt rushed even though I stayed longer than usual while waiting for the van. And the coffee and breakfast were great!

We use to eat our regular, Saturday breakfast there with the grandparents and whole family. Over time we noticed the food quality drastically decline and the manager was terrible to the wait staff if they had to take food back because the customer complained. the last straw was when my husband found part of a metal scrub brush in his...

All I can say is wow! I came in last week with my husband Bill for our 32nd anniversary, I was beyond impressed with our waitress. (I believe she told us her name was Dallas) I have come into the Dog house many times in the last few years , but never have I enjoyed my meal as much as... More

I've been eating at the Dog House for years, almost my whole life, and it's always been really good food. My wife and I came to the island for a wedding, so I decided to take her into the Dog House to try it. The food and service is still really good. Some of the food is slightly bland, but... More
