What is Vicky’s?
Vicky’s Doghouse is a gourmet hotdog kitchen on the fantail of the Battleship IOWA serving a variety of hotdogs, sides, salads, beers and wines. It is named after our famous mascot from the 1940s that has become a popular scavenger hunt on board the ship. Vicky’s also caters select meetings, events, school groups, and overnights on board the ship.
