This Murrells inlet restaurant never disappoints. Location is always an A+ (except in hurricane I guess). Food has been great in my 3 dining experiences. Previous 2 sat outside on deck dining with others. This time sat in bar area at one of the long high top tables as there were no single seats at bar. Seat looks towards the... More

Recomended by local and a friend. Said they are one of the best with the freshest seafood. All four in my group ordered the Heavenly Inlet Trio. I have had better frozen scallops. They had NO flavor. The shrimp was the same. Flavorless. And the crab cake.......wrk keys just say after two bites it was left in the plate. All... More

When we bought our first house down here 11 years ago, this was one of the first places we visited for lunch and a drink. The burger was great and the atmosphere was light and easy. Sit outside and enjoy the view. Have visited this place many times over the years, most recent was in November of 2016

My husband and I have visited twice this month. The crab nachos are amazing and there's enough for two. The crab cakes were a bit greasy, but I am not a fan of fried crab cakes. The fried green tomatoes were a fun item with a different twist. The two servers we had were great. View is terrific! We will... More

Outstanding food and a good value. Portions were generous and filling. Service was good. The music is a little loud if your eating on the porch. Makes it hard to have a conversation with someone or getting the waitress to hear what your ordering.

We hadn't stopped in for quite some time. Now we are sorry we didn't. Sitting out on the patio, we enjoyed the view of the salt marsh, marina, and marsh walk. I ordered the beef brisket sandwich. Very generous portion. The meat was tender and the coleslaw was great. Others in our party ordered the hot dog, pulled pork, and... More

We went to breakfast here the other day have been looking for a good breakfast lace for the last couple years and finally found it. Food was outstanding and very reasonable. Biscuits and gravy was good, pancakes were great and the eggs were cooked perfectly.

We were in the Murrells Inlet area and decided to go to the Dead Dog Saloon for lunch. I had been here once before and at that time I had just a sandwich. Today I ordered their Blue Crab Nachos from their appetizer menu. The serving was huge with enough for lunch and a take home portion for dinner tonight.... More
