Love the outside seating, atmosphere & shrimp. Kids got cheese pizza that wasn't great but other than that, love it. Great service! Fun to walk around area too.

“A spot to be visited”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

The location and atmosphere of this restaurant is not to be missed. Our weather was not perfect but the rain stayed away and we ate outside. There was a young man entertaining us with his songs and sense of fun which will always add to the ambiance of the occasion.

The food, especially the 'she crab' soup, is to be recommended, and having a complex of stores to browse around makes a very pleasant couple of hours.

“Just a staple of Hilton Head”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 via mobile

One of those places you just have to go. Atmosphere is fantastic, especially outside! Next time, we will be ordering the bacon Bloody Mary- can not wait to return!

“Awesome food, go early”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

We eat here every year. The food is fantastic and the kids menu is a book of activities and always keeps the kids busy. However, I suggest you go early for dinner or you could have wait times up to 2 hours!

“Cool place drink beer or a cocktail but eat elsewhere.”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

I expected a place called the Salty Dog to offer some really great creative hot dogs and sides. The large dogs were run of the mill. The beans were right out of the can. They offered mustard and ketchup and mayo at 8 bucks a pop. Come on, am I asking too much. The bartender was great and skilled. The beer cold. The food boring, step it up.
