A Must-Visit Restaurant with Even More Popular T-Shirts
This iconic cafe likely makes more through their t-shirt business than their food, but their emblematic clothing wouldn't be so popular if the food weren't up to snuff. Located deep in the Sea Pines neighborhood, near South Beach, the Salty Dog is part of a marina with small shops. Nosh on a salad, sandwich, or basket of seafood while enjoying the view over the creek, and then head home with a dog wearing a fisherman's hat proudly across your back. A visit here is practically requisite during any trip to Hilton Head. The brand has expanded across the island, including Salty Dog pizza and ice cream joints.

Macaws with a Salty Dog
It's safe to say that whenever you see macaws on Hilton Head, you're near a Salty Dog Cafe establishment. To those that don't know, or don't live anywhere near HHI to witness such a phenomenon, all those silly wonderful t shirts you see people wearing of a dog with a fisherman's hat is a Salt Dog Cafe trademark and HHI's infamous tourist destination. SDC is located deep in Sea Pines near South Beach and is a part of a marina with small shops and of course, the cafe itself. There are also SDC t shirt companies scattered about HHI if you're interested in becoming one of those infamous people with a SDC t shirt.
