A Review of the Dogtooth In Wildwood, New Jersey
Friday evening I went to Dogtooth in Wildwood. I’ve never been to the Dogtooth before so I went in with a completely open mind.
I was pleasantly surprised with the decor. Certainly classier than the name leads on. It was “Name that Tune” night so the bar was completely crowded. I waited about an hour to find enough bar stools to fit my small party of three. My Cosmopolitan was also quite good. The DJ Gabe was great too. He literally played the most random assortment of music I’ve ever heard. Anything my friend requested he was more than willing to play.
I am sad to say this is where the greatness of the night ended.
- After waiting an hour for a seat at the bar I noticed everyone’s bar glasses were empty. I sat there for 20 minutes with an empty drink in front of me along with numerous other people.
- It also took over 20 minutes to get anyone to take my order after a menu was in front of me.
- Once I got food it was burnt and it was apparent that the oil used was older.
The crowd died down dramatically after “Name that Tune” and having worked in the restaurant industry for many years I know that service like that is inexcusable, especially when your crowd is almost nonexistent.
The locals were great, the music was great, my drinks when I finally got them were great.
I am more than willing to give Dogtooth a second chance, just not on a Friday night I suppose.
Please let me know if you’ve had similar, worse, or better experiences. I’d love to get some feedback on this.
