Small, quaint, and right on the water. You know something is up when the place is fairly full, with a lot of locals. Two of them were nice enough to allow us to share their table, and get a bite to eat.

The hot dogs are really good, large, plump, and more dog than bun, which was toasted nicely. My wife had the pulled pork plate, and it was great too!

This is now a must-visit place for all of our trips in the area!

Thank Udoggie

The Salty Dawg is a place that is frequented by locals and tourists in the know. They have a large menu. Be careful what you order. The burgers are really good, the seafood can be iffy. Do not get the calamari, it is a pressed, overly chewy mess. The fish reminds you of frozen fish sticks, but is actually tasty. The service alone is a great reason to return. Really funny people who are attentive and spend a lot of time telling jokes and making conversation. They serve a lot of food, nothing outstanding, but mostly tasty. If you are staying in the area, this is a good place to get local color and fill the void.

So with the salty dawg you learn it's all in what you order. The broasted chicken is always delicious, peel and eat shrimp are awesome, and the onion rings and jalapeno poppers with homemade jalapeno jelly are great. I've also had a fantastic Reuben sandwich as well. Now I will say I am not a big fan of the burgers, but maybe it was an off day. Either way I have tried a bit of everything on the menu and most of it has been great. When going here you need to keep in mind this is a pub/tavern and this is the food they serve. The service is always wonderful and friendly, and the drinks are not measured by a shot glass. They actually know how to count and use a jigger! I will continue to go here for chicken and shrimp and hope the burgers get better. Oh and the fries are hand cut and made fresh daily.

Keith had the chowder bowl and said it was gummy and full of fake crab and tasteless baby shrimp. I ordered Chili Rellenos and it was the worst I have ever had. Will not go back. Staff great though.

We always like to try local restaurants when traveling, and thought that this place, located on the "Port" of Waldport would be interesting. The server was friendly and had a great sense of humor, but smelled like an ashtray. The menu is pretty eclectic; I ordered the seafood chowder bowl, a mixture of clam chowder, fake crab, and tasteless baby shrimp. My wife ordered the Chili Rellenos from the "Mexican" side of the menu. We're not sure where they got the recipe - it was a mixture of canned chopped chilis, melted cheese, and egg batter, all microwaved together. Not many people in the restaurant area, but the bar was packed with locals.
