LOVE LOVE LOVE this place! My husband and I found it on our honeymoon 15 years ago and each year when we come back to Rockport we have to stop in here! It does get crowded and seating can get cramped or non-existent during peak times, but they offer to-go menu too! The staff is so friendly and helpful in offering suggestions! Everything I have ever tried here has been wonderful! Looking forward to going back this year!

This is a really FUN place for a casual bite! Its tiny and line can sometimes seem long but they have fast great service. Chili Cheese fries are my favorite and the tuna roll is YUM!! My family enjoy the fried clams, hot dogs and now they have sliders which are SO good! This is one of our fav lunch spots in Rockport and now they serve beer so its a WIN!

The location is great, the people are nice, and the hot dogs are not bad. You can get a wide variety of toppings, which is fun. I am sorry to damn with faint praise because, really, if you want a quick inexpensive lunch on Bearskin Neck, then Top Dog is a fine choice. I just really don't understand the rave reviews. If this is, as AAA Magazine claims, the “#1 Hot Dog Shop in New England," then the pickin's must be pretty slim. Go. Enjoy. Just don't expect to be overwhelmed.

Spent a lovely day in Rockport and as result needed something hearty to eat. 'Top Dog' is down one of the side streets just off the main tourist shopping street. It's small, quirky and the staff were very pleasant. The Fish and Chips were good and freshly cooked - just wish the US would find out about 'Salt and Vinegar' instead of Mayo!

We called in just for a drink as the place was to close shortly. Both the young lady and man working there were very pleasant and accommodating. We would have stayed to eat if they were open longer, though the lady did recommended the nearby Fish Shack........thanks once again to her.

This place is informal and the menu reflects that. There was one person eating when we were there, and if looks are anything to go by then it got a thumbs up from us. The meal did look yummy.

If we are back in town again, then we will certainly go there to eat as a thank you for the hospitality and recommendation.
