I've reviewed Dead Dog Saloon before, but we've had a couple of more visits - and, they are just always great. Great casual beach view/atmosphere. We have always had good service. And, always had good meals. I got the Heavenly Trio - enjoyed the grilled seafood (instead of the usual broiled). Husband and son loved the crab legs boiled pot.... More

Spent a week in Myrtle Beach and this one of the better places we had dinner. Everyone in my party of 9 enjoyed their shrimp, scallops, and grouper tacos. We'll go back.

Like many dockside restaurants, the food and the service takes a back seat to the booze and the view. We were there less than a week ago, and all I can tell you about the food is that I didn't like it and didn't eat much of it and neither did anyone else at the table. The waitress dropped the...

Stopped here last year for lunch and loved - this year just liked. Let me be clear - the hushpuppies with cinnamon butter are simply awesome - i love that you get this for free. But for entrees we had two different types of tacos - shrimp ones were great - fish ones kinda bland and not that exciting. I... More

This is the second time I've been here over a span of 3 years. Nothing has changed from the first time. Delicious! I had the seared tuna tacos this time and was not disappointed. I also got the oysters for an appetizer. They were "alright." But nothing to change my rating of this place. If you're in Murrell's Inlet, stop... More

We recently ate at dead dog on the marsh walk, we chose to sit outside and were treated to an amazing view. The food was amazing ( I recommend the shrimp po'boy). We also got complimentary hush puppies with really good butter. This is a cool place with great food!

The employees at this establishment need trained on how to treat customers! The call ahead reservation system is a joke...they need to say they don't take reservations when you call. Once we got there, we were told a half and hour. After that was up, we were then told another 45 minutes. My sister expressed her concerns about the wait... More

Jamie, I am very sorry that we were unable to accommodate your group in a timely manner. However, the situation you describe here is far from what actually happened on the night you visited. I was the manager on duty that evening and remember your group well. It was raining that night and since we have over half our seating... More

Went with the family tonight. Used TA for every restaurant we've eaten at on this trip. We were told an hour wait, but bonus, we were seated in fifteen minutes. Hush puppies came out fast and were delicious. Wife ordered crab cake dinner, me, the crab pot. Wife's sweet potato fries were not hot, all of my food was quality.... More
