This restaurant in Murrells Inlet had been recommended by family so we decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. We were seated, as requested, outside on the deck overlooking the marsh. As described in the name, it is a "saloon" atmosphere so don't expect a white table cloth and napkins. It was perfect for having a great... More

We had a casual dinner outside and enjoyed the live music next door on the boardwalk. Food was somewhat mixed. The scallops drew rave reviews! The grouper was very disappointing . Service was OK.

it felt odd eating in a place with pictures of people's dead dogs all over the place (thus the name) thank god the dogs were alive when the pictures were taken. we had ribs that tasted more like barbecued ham, but were eatable.service was good.

We only had cocktails at the dead dog saloon. However, many people were there and eating and all seem to be enjoying their suppers. It's a great place for cocktails and overlooking the life on the Murrell's Inlet marsh. Great, friendly service.

The food is really good and the atmosphere is awesome!! I had fish and chips - DELICIOUS!! Inside, there are posters and tables with sayings pertaining to dogs that are hilarious!! On the patio you get a great view of the marsh walk. You can sit outside under umbrellas too but it's rather warm. Best to sit there in the... More

I had no idea that they served breakfast and I am glad I know now. The restaurant has a great casual atmosphere, and a great view. The service is always good. The breakfast menu is off the hook! I had the country Benedict; biscuits covered with cornbeef hash, gravy and toped with eggs - out of this world. The group... More

The food okay. I have had better there. My husbands dinner look like they had poured it straight from the fryer. There was grease all over the bottom of the plate. I had fish tacos and it was very good. We will probably return because everyone has an off day. Our waitress was just okay. She could have been a... More

We were anxious to visit the Marsh Walk again after the hurricane. Everything looked great and was in very good shape there. While we've had DD for a breakfast brunch in the past, we had not visited on a date night. We were able to get right in as there is a lot of seating if you are good with... More

Nice views, pleasant servers, atmospheric dining room, BAD FOOD! My husband does not like fish so he went for the barbeque platter. I'm not a fussy eater but even I could not stomach the dried out meats. He asked for some extra sauce and he got a small container of grease. Terrible! I had oysters on a half shell, they... More
