Reviewed November 22, 2013

Crowd very slim for a Saturday night so no wait for seating and food. Rolls hot but nondescript. Shecrab soup excellent; grilled scallops & shrimp tasted ok but mostly like grill seasoning; crab cakes tasty...a little more breading than I like but satisfactory. Good augratin potatoes offer a nice change. Mixed squashes, carrots, broccoli were very crisply steamed. Tasty margarita. Excellent service.

“Cool place for scenic cocktails and Munch on Heathy Choices”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

Wife and I asked some golfers for a tip on where to chill with a scenic view and cocktail and they recommended Salty Dog. Good call. The happy hour Shrimp and Mahi Bites were awesome. The bartenders outside were really nice. Of course with a wife as beautiful as mine, most guys are nice. Try the specialty drinks. The one with Strawberry and cream of coconut was desert like.

“Great Lunch Indeed”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

I had a wonderful lunch eating outside on the deck in early November. I had a po boy sandwich with hush puppies. The fish sandwich was well prepared and not too greasy and the hush puppies are very good. The service was outstanding very attentive and the manager stopped by at my table to be sure that everything was up to snuff. The view of the marina and the creek is lovely and I enjoyed watching several pelicans sunning themselves on the dock.

It was a great way to spend a late fall afternoon on Hilton Head.
