Descent food, great scenery and nice mix of casual, upbeat social scene. Very busy location but you can choose outside with live music, inside with nice water views.

We were starving and decided to give this place a try, we sat in the open patio space outside which was nice. We were told to seat ourselves (outdoors) but I think someone forgot to let the server know we were there. We had the Fish Bites which came with a side, tasty and reasonably priced at $9.50 each.

Server was real slow and made some small mistakes. Food was way better then what I was expecting. I went with a burger, hush puppies, calamari, and grits. All good. Great location and worth checking out for sure while up in Sea Pines.

Brilliant location on water. Nice menu and good selection of cocktails. There is an outdoor bar which gives whole place a beachy feel! Nice food, reasonably priced. Very busy so probably best to book during busy summer months

The Salty Dog never fails and manages to accommodate 21 people without missing a beat!! The server handled us with ease, the manager made sure we were satisfied!! We left feeling happy, full, and laughing!

On our annual trip to Hilton Head, my boyfriend and I make sure to head over to the Salty Dog for dinner one night. Sea Pines is a little bit of a drive (and note, you have to pay to enter) but with some cute shops and a scenic location, it's a nice place to spend an evening. The Salty... More

After our trip on the water with Commander Zodiac we had lunch here. We all had she-crab soup which was delicious. My son had the swordfish special. I had the shrimp sandwich and my husband had a very large Caesar salad. All was fresh and tasty and we really enjoyed the view.

We often drop by the Salty Dog for drinks and snacks when we are in Hilton Head. This time we were disappointed with all the rules, regulations, limitations and the service in general. When we arrived (3 pm i.e. before happy hour), we ordered drinks from the bar. So far so good. Happy hour arrived and so did a very... More

This fun cafe is located in South Harbor in Sea Pines. The style is very casual, with food being beach/bar style menu. Very family friendly. Lots of outside tables along with inside.

My wife and I had lunch here on our recent trip to Hilton Head Island. I know this place is pretty well known, but it really did live up to its reputation. We had a great lunch outside and enjoyed the view. Our service was very good as well.
