Just returned home from visiting my in-laws. We decided to go to the Dog House as we’ve eaten there before and the food is great (especially the GIANT cinnamon rolls). There were only 2 left when we arrived and desserts were running low so she...More

There was a lineup when we arrived at 1115 on a Friday morning...late breakfasters or early lunchers? But quickly seated and server came right away. A pretty typical family type menu and the food good but not remarkable. I enjoyed watching our young waiter...so busy...More
