    Super cool area and shops! Would have loved to eat here but after arriving at 8:00 there was still a 3 hour wait! Maybe next time.

    Fish po boy sandwich had very little fish on a hogie roll I give it 6 out of 10 nothing special . Got a side of fruit that I had to send back , I replaced it with cole slaw and that was very good.

    Everything is good, but dining and drinking outside on the deck is fantastic.

    Delicious frozen drinks are rivaled only by the BEST hushpuppies on the entire island. Great outdoor bar atmosphere and great staff. Indoor option as well.

    The Key lime pie is some of the best I've ever had.

    I had the pulled pork sandwich. It was very good, but a bit boring. It was an ok experience until we got the bill. It was outrageous. The place is way overrated, overpriced, and overcrowded.

    Don't ask for the Salty Dog without salt - they get cranky and threaten to throw you to the jellyfish - I feared for my life

    The Crab cake sandwich was awesome! And serving size is good too! Its a little bit bland for me but the sauce and a little bit of salt makes up for it!

    Start with calamari, but ask for the very spicy sauce on the side. Crab cake sandwich or catch of the day are good entree options. Several choices on the kids menu. Try shrimp or fish nuggets.

    Thought the best part of the night was buying the T-Shirts. Food was just OK...atmosphere is nice though.

    The only seafood restaurant on Earth that charges for hush puppies?

    It gets very busy during peak hours. My family and I (party of 11) went Saturday around 1 and got seated right away. It was a good time because most people were just getting to or leaving HHI.

    The hush puppies are delicious. The prime burger basket also got rave reviews from my family. The seafood is always good. Definitely a must for a trip to Hilton Head!

    Hush puppies taste like funnel cake. Get with the pimento dip.

    Outdoor seating is a great scene. Be sure to check out the local shops as well.

    This is not a moderately cheap restaurant. Dinner for 2 cost us $60. If you want cheap go to Kiwi's Cookout or Landing's End. The atmosphere of the entire area is great and so is the food!

    When you plan your first trip to Salty Dog, please be prepared to tip the guard $6 for entry into Sea Pines.

    Awesome happy hour, 4 dollar beer on tap and free popcorn from 4-7pm at the outdoor bar! Try the salty dog lager and the hush puppies with hot sauce! A local favorite spot for sure

    This place is infamous. You have to visit the T-Shirt Factory. The food is expensive and the wait can be LONG, but there's entertainment to help. The wait is so worth it!! Get the hush puppies too!

    Find The Wreck of the Salty Dog. Full menu, same as the cafe, with shorter waits and 2 full bars, try the key lime pie. Enjoy the view.

    SUPER friendly staff! Try to sit outside if you can, if not sit near the windows when you can see the sunset. Everything on the menu is great :)

    The Wreck of the salty dog and salty dog Café have the exact same menus, personally I prefer the wreck of the salty dog for better outdoor view and indoor area.

    $5 day pass to the location, which was not mentioned by anyone. The food was good and the service was alright, but personally the hype is overrated.

    Great place for hanging around after dinner. The dock & shops were good and there was music on the deck. The restaurant was adequate. Very well marketed, which lends to an easy let down.

    Wow, the butter for the hush puppies is awesome. Who was the genius to first whip sugar into butter? A man who deserves a medal.

    Gotta go at least once. Try to avoid peak dining times as this place will get over-run with crowds. They do however have those sweet misters that help keep you cool on the outdoor deck.

    Pay no attention to the food critics. You don't come to the Dog for food. It's a change of latitude thing.

    Kiwi colada is amazing! Seafood pasta is delicious but the crab cake sandwich is the best bang for your buck! Get here at 4 to avoid an hour plus wait

    Long line for a table? It can be 45-60 min on a nice day. Skip the line and go "self service" at one of the bar tables. Same food, same view, rarely a wait.
