I happened to be in Boothbay for the day and I hadn't eaten here for quite a while. I was having a hankering for a crab roll and was very pleasantly surprised. I know how expensive crab is so I was very pleasantly surprised by the size. Fresh crabmeat on a sunny summer day. Thanks!

My husband and I stopped in for a quick bite. The nice man that runs the place will cook your dog however you want it & was so friendly! Delicious hot dogs!

This roadside stand has terrific burgers , hotdogs and fries! That's what we eat here, but they also have baskets of fried clams, chowder, and more . Pepsi drinks from a machine (only one Diet). Seating outside at picnic tables. Good, clean, fast, not always cheap...

We have been coming to the Boothbay region for over 25 years. Duntons Doghouse is always a stop for us. The owner/chef knows how to cook seafood (generally fried but so lightly) and everything is so fresh. There is something on the menu for everyone, including a veggie burger. I always see a lot of locals there. Great music plays,... More

It may be just a food truck but there is so much variety to choose from. The service is very quick and friendly. The price is easy on the vacation budget. Must try!

I went to Dunton's Doghouse based on a recommendation from a local. It's sort of like a permanent food truck but there is some outside seating. It's a bit off the track but worth the walk. I knew we were in for something good because of the line. I had the lobster roll and it was very good. I noticed... More
