“Laid back bar with live music.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

We stopped by the Dinghy twice for drinks on our stay at Isle of Palms. By far the best bar on the island for a laid back vibe and live music. Our first visit we had food off the menu with our drinks. Tasty fare if you are looking for more of a lighter meal. Cool place with a definite island feel.

“What a great place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

The openness of The Dinghy reminds me of Key West! We love it! The varying live music almost every time we go there has us wanting to back more and more!! The menu is simple and covers my wife's tastes and mine as well. I've tried some local brews there and have been very happy with them. The bartenders are very pleasant, and put off the vibe that they are really enjoying themselves at work, which sets the tone for the place. I have found my favorite new place on the IOP!
