Based on a YouTube video comparison of Boardwalk Pizzas, we thought "The Dough Roller" would be a good choice. Maybe if we had ordered a whole pizza it might have been ok. But we each ordered a slice and it was very disappointing. The crust...was hard and there was very little sauce and cheese. As there are myriad other choices, I wish we had chosen differently.More

I had flounder sandwich. Terrible. Ate two bites. My wife had chicken tenders. She barely ate it . All tasted of stale oil in fryer. The biggest complaint- menu claimed “fresh brewed iced tea.” It was powdered. Never again. The server didn’t question why the...food was barely touched.More

This pizza was so good. Thin crust, yummy sauce and cheese. Perfectly prepared. A taste of home from the Northeast has come down south. Thank you dough roller

On vacation and heard much about the eatery. My family of 7 piled inside for lunch and were promptly seated. Table and floor area were not properly cleaned. Some of the drinks had a foul smell of bad tap water. Sever was not friendly. But...the pizza was very good. Probably would not visit again.More

Best pizza,hands down, on the boardwalk. I always leave home early enough to have lunch on our travels here and eat there 2 more times during the week. Always superior service to go along with the superior pizza. My SIL got the barbecue chicken pizza,...daughter got Hawaiian and mom and I got pepperoni and cheese. I always recommend the Dough Roller and it is right next door from where I stay!More

So we ate here for breakfast and it wasn't bad. I expected better though for the price. The table was very wobbly and the waitress was not very friendly but everyone has bad days plus everywhere is understaffed. Food came out very quickly.

Took an early am trip to Ocean City from Dewey and needed pancakes. We found them. Nice selection. I had the pecan pancakes and the wife had the Big Roller. We were good for hours. It get crowded, so be prepared to wait a bit....Service was great.More

It proved to be really difficult to find a restaurant that didn't have an extreme wait on the boardwalk during our recent vacation. The Dough Roller is a really large restaurant, so we were able to eat there twice without a wait, although it was...busy. Food and service were fantastic both times. Would recommend!More

Chicken Fingers and Buffalo Wings undercooked—- Pizza was decent and cooked well. They rushed my order cause it was ready in 20 minutes. Who was cooking- $25 wasted- disappointed.

why having so many other places would you want to eat there? Even more if you are from NY... Do yourself a favor and eat somewhere else. This place is an insult to NY's pizza.
