This is one of those places that you have to see even if you don't buy anything. The lady bartender was great, explained the history behind the thousands of dollar bills taped, stapled, nailed, thumbtacked and attached to almost every surface of the walls, ceilings, doors and other surfaces. Customers were the exact clones of characters you've met in every... More

You have to stop at this favorite spot, grab a beer, and leave a one dollar bill on the wall with your name on it! It's a fun place to visit. It's a must if you are visiting the Spit! Cheers

We heard about the dollar bills covering the walls, but we never expected SO MANY, taking up just about every available space of this small bar. About the only things not covered in dollar bills were the bar stools, benches, and tables, and from the looks of it, that'll happen soon too. It almost feels like the dollar bills are... More

This place has lots of character and is open all year. It is covered with dollar bills all over and at the end of the year they donate all the money to the employees favorite charity. The salty dog is a grapefruit and vodka with salt around the rim. Fun atmosphere.

This is a must see spot if you are in town. It's a small bar located on the spit. They had your usual beer selection and a decent price. The second you walk in the door you are overwhelmed with dollar bills all over the walls and ceilings. It was really cool to see. I would have given it 5... More

Stopped in to use their free WiFi on a cruise ship stop. They ran a free shuttle from the dock area to a spot beside the bar. It is at least mile (or so) walk from the cruise dock. This area where the bar is located is called the Split. There are other stores/restaurants there too. The Salty Dawg Saloon... More

We went in and sat at the bar twice. The people working here are great. So pleasant and fun. The prices of the drinks are reasonable. Stop by just to take peek and buy a souvenir. Fun time to sit and meet locals and people from around the world. Snack bags of chips, peanuts and such for sale.

Went in here on my own, stood at the bar , everyone was so friendly, bar ladies, locals, tourists all chatting and chilling. Great atmosphere, fun bar with lots of $1 pinned everywhere, apparently those on the wall are taken down at the end of the year and given to charity, last year it came to around $47,000 GO BEER...

We always stop here and it does start with some eye rolling, but it is a great bar to stop for one drink and to rest tired legs or sea legs. Put $1 up, I know you want to and then watch people come in and try to locate the dollar they put up 10 years ago. Great entertainment and... More

Talk about your local flavor! Word of mouth led us to this little dive of a saloon. They didn't tell us too much; only, "Don't miss this attraction when you are on the spit, even if it is just to stick your head in the door". We had so much fun walking through, bantering with the bar-tender, listening in on... More
