We always plan a visit to the Salty Dog when we visit HHI and are never disappointed. Service is top notch, and you can't beat the view. Food is simple but great. We ordered the alligator special as an app. Delicious!

Food was excellent. Gil, our waiter was great. Weather was cool, so we had to sit inside, where it still was a little chilly. Entire family enjoyed the meal. Would like to visit again when warmer weather would allow outside seating.
