We were staying in a Seaside Beach resort area mid-Jan and based on a recommendation from the resort we headed 15 minutes down the road to Murrells Inlet to try this restaurant and if the menu didn’t appeal you were in an area with several other restaurants in a row to choose from. The water facing deck area had a... More

Food and service were great. Would have been another Murrells inlet 5 star but they allow smoking in the restaurant, what decade are they living in.

Thank you for your kind comments on the Dead Dog. I should point out though, that our restaurant and bar hs been smoke free for 8 years. We do permit smoking only at the outside open air deck bar. Thanks for your review. More

My husband and I went to the Dead Dog Saloon on the recommendation of a friend. The place is very casual with a wonderful picture display of beloved pets no longer with us. (Hence the name...) We were there mid Sunday afternoon to watch an NFL playoff game. We sat at the bar which is our preference. It was filled... More

Stopped here when I was down on the marsh walk talking bird pictures. Had fish and chips Fish was excellent not overly breaded like a lot of places. Fries had unique seasoning on them and were also very good. But I sat by the window and watched the brown pelican fly and dive for its lunch too. very entertaining.

Great food, entertainment, and atmosphere. What more could you want? Great outdoor deck, protected in winter. Waterway view on the Marshwalk. Superb!

I just like this area, as the view along this boardwalk of "Goat Island" has sheep and large birds feasting while I dine and drink. Lots of TV's for a great variety of sports events and different dining areas for what you want to watch. Kraft beer and specials. Several other bars and restaurants along the riverwalk, so easy to...

stopped for a little football watching. The Cajun Fish bites were a great snack. Moist and not too heavy on the fried aspect. Could have used a light dusting of a little more Cajun spice. Adequate beer selection. Great at the bar seating overlooking the Marsh Walk.

On a very cold day here in Myrtle Beach, my husband and I decided to take a drive to Murrells Inlet for lunch. We stopped at the Dead Dog Saloon and had a wonderful meal. My husband's sandwich was so big he had trouble eating it but my spinach salad with chicken was just the right size. Can't wait to... More

I always get the hot dog there. During my last visit I sat on the heated patio and enjoyed wings and a great hot dog. Service is always fantastic as well.

So, my friend was wearing a t-shirt sporting the Dead Dog Saloon logo. We usually hang around Ocean Drive or North Myrtle beach, but we headed out to Murrell's Inlet to check this place out! Super-good decision. "We" are this 60-+ grandmother, a 40-something daughter and 10-year old grandson, so this is a good place for families and hungry people... More
