We were in Deep River to shop and as we walked past this little restaurant, the delicious and enticing aromas wafting out the open door just pulled us in, like a clip on our noses or a gentle lasso! Inside, the small place is full...More

We are so pleased you were lassoed in by the aromas and enjoyed your food and visit. Please do come again. Unfortunately, as a prepared food shop rather than a restaurant, we only have our small staff restroom to share with patrons, and the open/close...More

Dough on Main was recommended to me by someone who is probably the most hyper-critical restaurant goer I have ever met. I trust her judgment and she eats here regularly. Well, she was right. The eggplant sandwich with pesto was delicious and substantial. I almost...More

Changes always occur in life, but it is a shame it has affected your visit to our shop. We strive for consistency in delicious food and good service. One new staff member has been added, and training always does require time to complete. Also, with...More

We are staying in Deep River (at the Riverwind Inn) and stopped here for lunch. The coriander carrots were very tasty, as was the potato crusted salmon. The broccoli fritters were the star! Friendly service and atmosphere. Not fast food!More
