Sat at the bar, as usual the food was prompt and good, great selection of local brews made it even better... Yeah it's touristy but it is the Salty Dog!

This year we went for lunch and it didn't disappoint (even though it was 97). We ate outside and the only thing we missed was some live music! Just love this area and this stop!

Been here several times over the years. The best part is getting a seat by the outside bar and enjoying the view and cold drinks. The menu has not seemed to have changed (ever), and the food is "OK", There are a lot of other places to go on HH for a good meal, this is all about the location

Visited with my family. At least we got a T-shirt. The wait was tolerable given the season and time. The service was poor: nonexistent and slow when the. Overly priced based on quality.

We have always heard our family and friends race about this place and it lived up to its expectations. With not only seafood to offer, there is something for everyone. Loved our server and would go back.

Always a must for tourists, but just average and our server was below average. Waited for awhile for her to even get to us to talked our drink order, after an hour wait at 2 p.m. when more than half the tables were empty, then never came back to top them off on a 95° day. Generally lackluster.

Ok I admit it - I LOVE THIS PLACE! I fell in love with South Beach marina and TSDC years ago when we first came to HHI, and I still consider a trip to the Island incomplete without a visit to Jakes place.
