Enjoyed a great seafood lunch on a cool Jan day. She crab soup and crabcakes were excellent. Wait staff were very attentive and helpful. View was great...watched the Pelicans fishing outside dining room window. Hush puppies were awesome!

In winter, the Salty Dog operates out of the Land's End Tavern, with seating inside there or down the walk at the outdoor part of the Salty Dog.

We were not impressed with salty dog. Overpriced for cheap bar food. Great location and good music. Good outdoor location but the restaurant is lacking.

I think my review says it all, we didn't have anything that we didn't enjoy, in fact after our first visit there, we went back the very next day., so I guess you can say we enjoyed, because we are definitely going back.

I totally love the vegetarian dishes they offer. The food and staff are wonderful !! I always look forward to stopping there whenever I'm in the area. I love seafood and always say this time I'm going to order it and never do. I always order the vegetable options.

Great lunch there. Overlooking the water and the view is fantastic. You should definitely try to eat here during your stay on Hilton Head!!

We were here just after Christmas. We lucked out-as we arrived, they were just seating for dinner so got a table right away. I had the big ole plate of crab legs/shrimp/corn, etc. Tasted great, but the peel and eat shrimp still has the poo in the back. I have been to places that remove it, so just be aware.... More
