We expected a wait but walked right in. Seafood was fresh and prepared just right. Got the evening special, crab stuffed flounder. The she crab soup was worth the trip. Service and atmosphere were top notch.

Just about everyone on Hilton Head knows about The Salty Dog so of course we had to try it (two teenage girls, my wife and me.) While a decent seafood restaurant and great location I was disappointed by the decor and just the general feel of the place. I had crab cakes and the ladies all had diffewrent seafood dinners (fried.) I found the crab cakes all right but none of the food was spectacular. Was it worth the wait? Really not sure. Plenty to do while waiting there are shops nearby and they have a nice arrangement of bars outside where you can get some types of quick food and drinks with plenty of seating,Believe the place is running on past reputation and coul use some upgrading. Very pleasant wait staff and service is quick.

Enjoyed piano bar, outdoor seating by the water. Friendly staff. Food was pretty good. Fried seafood. Enjoyed the shops around the plaza. Family oriented.

Our seventeen year old son was thrilled to sit at the outdoor bar and watch a football game while enjoying a nice dinner. The bartender, Ethan, was outgoing and very capable. The calamari (Ring of Fire) was very good, but overal the food was average.

The crab cakes were the best I've ever eaten anywhere. Came with Au Gratin potatoes which were maybe the best Au Gratins I've ever tasted. Vegetables were great too. The Peanut butter pie was the best on the island amongst the 6 restaurants tasted. This restaurant is now on the permanent list to be visited whenever in Hilton Head. The service was efficient and well done. A very nice evening.
