“Great place for cocktails and a bite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

My wife and I have been coming down to this area for over 20 years and we always make time for a few cocktails and appetizers at the Dead Dog Saloon. They have a great appetizer that we have order the last few years called boo boo’s tender bites that are outstanding. We have had several appetizers and meals here over the past years and have never been disappointed. Unfortunately they had a fire about a year ago and have since rebuilt but I’m glad to see that they kept it pretty much the same as was before. If you are looking for good food and a nice view of the inlet this is a good place to stop in on.

“Greasy food-lots of flies buzzing around.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

The service was poor and the food was very greasy. Will not go back. The waitress seemed to have more important things to do than wait on us. There were dozens of flues buzzing around our table as we were seated inside next to a window.

“Great lunch, not so much dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

Dead Dog is a long time staple in Murrell's Inlet. Great patio overlooking the inlet and Marsh Walk. Have had lunch there several times (both before and after the fire) and the service and sandwiches were terrific. Brought my son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren for dinner - edible, but nothing to write home about. Damn shame. The owner seems to be a great guy, and obviously cares for his staff and the area. Ought to pay a little more attention to the dinner food.

“Ok, but expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

Took family to Dead Dog......think a bit too expensive for the area. Lovely patio area to sit out on, but food isn't all that great for what you pay.

“The Dog Should Have Stayed Dead”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Probably the worst dinner I've ever had in any restaurant. My shrimp scampi served over risotto was so swimming in lemon sauce that I couldn't eat it. The five shrimp were tiny. A choice of two sides came with the dinner but nothing went with the shrimp (beans, onion rings, french fries, potatoes etc.) The prices were right up there and they didn't serve any rolls or bread to nibble on while waiting for your dinner. Salads were extra and not worth it. Maybe lunch type food is better but I wouldn't count on it. A definate tourist trap.
