Great family place! We loved the outdoor fire pit. I'm not sure if this place is good for seafood, but our burgers were fabulous!!! Love the location too!

Had a great late breakfast there. The Greek shrimp omelet was superb. Hash browns excellent and not greasey. Reasonably priced.

The food is very good, Service is done with a flair. There is special entertainment by kid-oriented musician during the busy season.

Of course you can not be on HHI and not eat here! The Salty Dog cafe is so much fun! It's one of HHI iconic places to see and enjoy fun food. The restaurant brings the outdoors inside. Whether dining inside or out the views are awesome and don't forget to buy a t-shirt that's a must!

We ate at the Bluffton location be ause it is against my core values to pay money to drive into a place to spend more money. They give you a booklet that explains why you have to pay, to keep up the roads for the rich millionaires and over priced vendors who dwel in the area. Food was okay but... More

The view is spectacular and the food is wonderful. There is a large selection with items for children and non-fish eaters. The outdoor seating is fun.

My wife and I had been disappointed a few times already on our weekend trip to Hilton Head as we were in search of a great seafood place. We weren't really expecting Salty Dogs to be as good as it was. We both had the Wahoo and it was so good. The sides were good as well. We left HHI... More

A terrific location in Sea Pines Plantation. It overlooks the harbor, easily accessible by car, or bike. It has many outdoor seating table, not gourmet but good. On Wednesdays, with a high tide they have an evening cruise which can be fun. Not dinner but cocktails. Music numerous evenings beginning about 8:30pm. The Salty Dog store and the most reasonably...

Ate outside. Had lunch. Our waitress Melissa was very personable. Everyone enjoyed their food. No dogs allowed because of previous pet owners not keeping pets under control. Has indoor and outdoor seating. Ice cream and souvenir shopping close by.

The reputation is hard to ignore, but it is truly a casual and fun place. Outdoor fire, bar, musician, piers and t-shirt shop make even an hour wait go by quickly. We had ten people and a grand time laughing in the noisy atmosphere. The food was pretty good but don't expect fine dining. My wife is GF and got... More
