Excellent service!

We visited Salty Dog with our twin toddlers. The staff was so accommodating and helpful. They put plastic mats on the table for us and provided each toddler with a bib. The food was great! We will definitely return on our next trip to HHI!

This is more of a compilation of restaurant, souvenir shop and entertainment area than just a cafe. Situated down at the very end of the island, this iconic cafe serves up sandwiches and other casual fare. It is right on the waterside with a good view of the inland water. In the season there is usually live music in the... More

One of the iconic, must go places on Hilton Head. Food was good, but not remarkable, service adequate--had great view from window-side seating. Lots to do while waiting outside, even on a cool. rainy day. Have to visit the T-shirt shop.

I had to go o the Salty Dog restaurant. I had seen so many t-shirts everywhere. It's very nice, maybe a litte overrated. Just another mid level eatery, but have to be there.

You've got to visit the Salty Dog when you're on HHI. Its a great spot in a great setting. The food is good, the staff is friendly. You can get your picture online through their Live web cam. Make sure you take a minute to say hi and pet Chadwick, the resident cat. He can be found wandering around waiting... More

The food and attentiveness of the staff was good, and a major draw seems to be wanting to get a tee-shirt from the gift shop. Also, their ability to handle a large group was a plus.

We ate lunch here recently and enjoyed our meal outside. The service was excellent. The only drawback was the little bugs that bit us all through lunch. Recommend they warn people when they ask if you want to eat inside or outside.

Food is good. Menu varied. Hospitable for families. But...... Lots of families. With lots of little kids. And lots of fried food. But seems like a stalwart.

We walked up with 13 people and were seated in less than 30 minutes on a Saturday night. The food was terrific as always. She crab soup is a wonderful recipe. Shrimp and Scallops were prepared perfectly being careful not to overcook the scallops. The Key lime pie and Peanut butter pies are incredible. We will be back next time... More
