The food is good, but not spectacular. Kind of the same stuff you find everywhere on HHI and typically pricey. Lunch for four ran us a cool $100 (no booze). The best thing was the gator bites--never had that before.

We love going to the Dog. The food is good, the service is good, the harbor is fun, sitting under the umbrellas is fun. We go several time every time we go to HHI.

The salty dog has been a staple for years at Habor Town Hilton Head Island! As usual my family stopped here for dinner and food is fantastic! My wife and i tried the Cheesy Shrimp sandwich and OMG! It’s to die for!

Great little place to grab great Po-boys, from shrimp, blackened grouper, chicken w/ peppers and pimento cheese! Neat beach atmosphere and view! Was within walking distance for us..a plus as parking is tight. Don’t forget to try the salt water taffy!

I don't recall any specifics on the menu about being gluten free, but they were very accommodating in general and there were plenty of gluten free options from my recollection.
