This place is awesome. It is not just a hotdog place. Their shrimp pro’ boys are the absolute best and they have so much more. They have options to please every meat or seafood eater. Casual, laid back place and so much a favorite of...ours. Cannot visit Wildwood or NJ without making a couple stops here. Sometimes 2x a day, though cannot get there enough from 4 hours away! I recommend it to all my friends heading that way and if you do not like eating under an outdoor enclosure, order ahead to go and it will be awesome to take with you. Keep up the great work!More

Had 2 types of hot dogs today, the Italian and just a mustard and kraut. Both were very good. The fries here appear to be hand cut and are very good. This is a unique plane and patrons should be open minded. The food is...always great here although I wish they didn’t run out of my favorite Salty Balls. Definitely worth a stop while if you are in Wildwood.More

If you are looking for a place that is egotistical and full of themselves look no further!! We brought our friends and friends family here this past weekend thinking it would be a great family friendly experience however we were thoroughly disappointed. First off, how...can you run a business called Maui’s Dog House and serve food out of DOG BOWLS but not allow dogs? By the way, dining is entirely outdoors. Okay, I understand dogs not being allowed under the tent due to health and food code regulations but we asked if we could stand on the sidewalk in front of the business and were told no. Maybe you should consider coming up with a different restaurant name if you clearly do not like dogs. Also, do you own the sidewalk? Don’t think so. Next point, in a time of COVID none of the employees wear masks?-enjoy your COVID hot dog. I observed employees eating in the kitchen- so hygienic! Lastly, this place really wants their guests to feel welcome. With signs saying “this is not Burger King, we do not take your order the way you want it, we make it the way WE want it.” Looks like you don’t cater to costumers who have diet restrictions or different tastes than you.More

I recommend the Alabama Dog, their signature sauce with the grilled onions on it was amazing! It’s hard for me to call this a hot dog because it has a spice to it like a bratwurst but it was still really good! I would totally...recommend coming here.More

Food is not good. Service is not good. Nothing is good. Tons of other places to get a good meal. Plus the owners attitudes are horrific. Just look at all their tacky responses to people who leave them negative reviews.More

Many unusual hot dog meals, with fries or chips, served in a stainless steel "dog" bowl! Onion rings and other sides available! A "howling" good time! Sidewalk cafe is nice in the summertime!

My extended family of 13 had gone here for lunch before we hit the Wildwood Piers and this place was awesome! Any style hot dog you could imagine and they use Hoffman Hot Dogs, which really made it even more delicious. You were served your...meal in a dog bowl, which we found to be so cool. The fries were very tasty and you get huge portions. You don't go away hungry from this very neat outdoor eatery. We enjoyed it!More

Stopped for lunch while on vacation, the food is good but it is pricey. We got 1 drunken dog which is sauerkraut soaked in beer and mustard on your hot dog, the roll threw me off a bit. I prefer potato rolls these rolls reminded...me more of sausage or hero rolls. I think with the other hot dogs they are needed due to all the toppings. Hubby got a chicago dog which he enjoyed very much. He got old bay fries which were salty for my taste. Then we got the salty balls. OMG get them!!! Loved them a bit salty on the outside and creamy on the inside. I was in heaven. 2 drinks the bill was almost $25...thats a bit high for hot dogs. Now the hot dogs were good, I would definitely go back again and try the sausage which would probably be very good on the hot dog rolls. Over all worth stopping in to try.More
