“You will Love this Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Last week my wife and I drove down to the Dead Dog Saloon for lunch. We ordered the Footlong
Hotdog platter and sat out on the patio watching the boats and jetskis cruise up and down the
waterway. Each time we visit the Myrtle Beach area we make a point to dirve down to Murrells
Inlet just to visit the Dead Dog. On weekends there is live entertainment. After eating you can
stroll the wooden deck walkway for a couple of blocks or more. You can see the boats come in
and out and there are several other places to eat along the walkway. A couple of hundred yards
away is an island with waterfowl, goats, and other wildlife to view.

“Great for a low key night out!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

After an evening stroll along the Marsh Walk we decided to get a bite to eat and stepped into the Dead Dog. It was a beautiful nite so we sat on the deck, at a counter overlooking the waterfront. We ordered appetizers, the clam strips and chicken wings, both were good. We also had frozen pina coladas which were delicious. It was very relaxing and because it was a weeknite it was pretty quiet. The best part of the evening was the guitar player. He was really good...and he was HYSTERICAL! He teased everybody, nothing mean or insulting, just alot of fun. We couldn't stop laughing. The old Dead Dog was good, the new one is even better.

“Dead Dog Saloon more "upscale"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

The Dead Dog Saloon has a more "upscale" look since its remodeling after the fire. The quality of the food has also improved. The service in the bar was excellent and we felt free to linger and enjoy the view.

“Best she crab soup.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

In town visiting family. After spending the better part of the day at Huntington beach state park(wonderful place) we were hungry. My brother inlaw sugested Dead Dog Saloon. I'm glad he did. I love she crab soup,not really available in FL. It was wonderful. Rich and creamy and plenty of crab. Wanted to lick the bowl,but manners stoped me. My family got the fish and chips, all loved them. Sat on the patio with a wonderful view. Service was good. Chris was our server. Very pleasant and attentive. When my nephew didn't get his pickles Chris went and got them right away. Would defiantly return on our next visit to Mrytle Beach. The she crab soup is calling me.
