Fun place to watch games and gather with friends. The food is an added bonus. The fried squash is my personal favorite appetizer and you won't go wrong with any of the dog bowls!

Can't complain about a Little Bit of Chicken Fry! Steak was battered perfectly, Fries were hot and crunchy. Gravy was just like grandmas! Get you some!

YUMMY! I absolutely LOVED the burger salad at the Salty Dog. I enjoyed the delicious hamburger patty topped with thick fried bacon and drizzled in bleu cheese crumbles. The salad bowl was piled high with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, bacon bits and cheese. The next time I will get the same salad but I will have to choose between the Porky... More

I met a friend here for lunch. I ordered salmon croquettes with broccoli and rice casserole and turnip greens. The food was good, but service was lacking. It took them 45 minutes to get our orders ready. During that time I noted several other guests that came in after us get their meals in a reasonable amount of time. The... More

Popped in here for a cocktail and was most pleased with the "Salty Dog"...fresh squeezed grapefruit juice, vodka, salt in a large glass. Most refreshing. Try it, you'll like it! I loved it!

After visiting Magnolia Market on our girl's weekend we found this awesome place by accident. Home made HUGE burgers, delicious home made fries, great salads and a super friendly owner who treated us to their house specialty "salty balls". We highly, highly recommend stopping here. Nice decor and very clean.

I would order these again... Kids ate chicken tenders and Mac n cheese. We were skeptical when the macncheese showed up though because... More

I have died and gone to heaven! I truly enjoyed every single bite of my Salty Ball Salad. The ingredients were fresh and the Salty Balls were cooked to perfection. My brother had the Taco Salad. I will get that the next time, because I loved eating more than half of his taco shell that it was served in. This... More
