Always a great meal at the Salty Dog! Kids had the fish and chips and pulled pork. If you like black bean burgers, you will not be disappointed! Freshly made and packed with black beans as it should be! If you are in Hilton Head, worth a stop for lunch! And a t-shirt 😀 and hush puppies!!

In Sea Pines Plantation, this light-fare eatery has a well deserved reputation for both food and atmosphere. Their signature shrimp salad was superb. Tee shirts with their logo seen all over the island are further evidence of their justifiable popularity. Enjoy!

I ordered shrimp and grits and my wife ordered the seafood pot pie. Both were very good and the portions were huge. Neither of us could finish our meal. We ate outside on the deck which is great if the weather is not too cool.

Stopped in for lunch with the family. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The food was very tasty and well served. Dining outside on a beautiful day was enjoyable. Made my daughters day with the handful of salt water taffy as an after lunch treat!!

Highly recommend the hush puppies! They are little balls of deep fried heaven... especially when dipped into she crab soup. Our server, Anatolie, was perfectly attentive and very kind.

We ate here when we first arrived to Hilton Head Island. The restaurant is situated in a very pretty spot along side the water at the distant end of the Sea Pines area. The restaurant was very busy when we arrived but we were seated promptly and looked after right away. All four of us at our table enjoyed our... More

The food was mediocre compared to similarly priced restaurants. The service was awful! This is a check the box spot and nothing special. Go somewhere else!

I've always loved eating at South Beach Marina. This is the first time I've eaten at the Salty Dog Cafe for dinner. The food is always wonderful but I rather felt ignored as a solo diner. It's a great place for groups but would hesitate to come back and have dinner by myself. Felt a little undervalued
