About Us

Top Dog is a truly unique “have to stop” hot dog shop and seafood restaurant. We are located on historic Bearskin Neck in the old fishing village of Rockport, Massachusetts. We serve up traditional grilled dogs and sausages. If you want to be more daring, take your hot dog eating experience to another level with our limitless combinations of specialty toppings. We offer many mouthwatering side dishes, like chili-cheese fries and more. And our local “fresh-off-the-boat” fried clams and lobster rolls are made with the same passion that goes into our specialty dogs. Check out our menu to see what we are boasting about!

Our ambiance is casual and fun. We are completely kid-friendly and even let them draw on our chalkboard walls!

There are many stories about this fishing town that are spun by lifelong locals who take enormous pride in this beautiful, historic place. Of course you can’t talk of Rockport without mentioning our favorite and most famous landmark… Motif # 1! The Motif is an old fishing shack that stands alone on Bradley Wharf. If you have visited Rockport and not snapped a photo of the Motif # 1, you have missed a historic building in North America. Come visit and find that there are many great photo ops, unique shops, easily accessible beaches, and breathtaking sunsets to enjoy here.
