Not sure why the average review is so low. This was a great meal and excellent service. I had the mahi mango tacos and they were fantastic. My wife had the crab cakes which were huge and she is still talking about how good they were 2 hours later. My son loved it because it was a Poke stop :)

We joined friends for dinner who have moved down here. We had never been but the chicken fingers in the beer batter were delicious! We will definitely be back.

My family and I love this place. Order the old salty dog (not the hot dog.). It's a delicious battered hot dog. If you order a hot dog, it'll just be a regular hot dog.

We were seated in the coverd dog area and our peke was brought a bowl of water immediately. Food was very good. You must try the "dog bites' and local craft beer. Both excellent. Very friendly and accomodating staff. Will definitely go back

I love seafood in a huge way. Unfortunately all of us had very mediocre food here today at lunch. The wait staff was out of sorts too.

I chose this location for the reviews on their key lime piña colada... That was fine.. But everything else was just ok. I had the grouper nuggets and they lacked any form of seasoning; the mahi tacos were good though. My daughter tried the blackened grilled chicken and liked it. Over all nothing was really worth writing home about and... More

My spouse and I had lunch at the Old Salty Dog on a Sunday afternoon. The food was very good. We had the grouper reuben sandwich and the crab cake sandwich. The side on the grouper was fries, and the side on the crab cake sandwich was cole slaw -- both sides were delicious. Our server was also very good.... More

Popped into this restaurant after a day on the beach. The kids really liked it. A few different types of burgers and hot dogs satisfied these hungry beach goers. Wait staff was nice, and did was served quickly.

Yum!! Ate lunch on the outdoor patio!! Had to try the Old salty dog and their famous Key lime Pina colada! Def worth the visit!
