Rymer’s Reasons: Dead Dog Saloon

In this episode, PlayGolfMyrtleBeach.com’s Charlie Rymer stops by the famous Murrells Inlet MarshWalk to show us one of his favorite places for a leisurely meal, the Dead Dog Saloon. Charlie dishes on some of their popular dishes, and offers some insight on the inspiration behind the restaurant’s unique moniker.



Charlie Rymer:
So I’m smack dab in the middle of the seafood capital of South Carolina. This is the MarshWalk at Murrells Inlet, and here’s what we got here: A half a mile, eight restaurants, all connected by this really cool boardwalk. Now, I’ve only got one problem with this situation. Right here where I’m standing, it’s only two and a half miles from my house. It isn’t so good for the diet.

One of my favorite things in Myrtle Beach is the Dead Dog Saloon. So there’s a reason they call this place the Dead Dog Saloon. Come on, I got something special to show you.

So my wife and I, we’re dog people. We’ve got two golden retrievers, Buzzy and Gunner. And one of the things that hits us hard when we come here to the Dead Dog Saloon, they’ve got this amazing tradition where folks can bring a photo of their dog that’s passed away and put them up on the wall. Check this out: Ralph, Cody, Alby. What a really cool way to pay tribute to a lost member of your family.

Charlie Rymer:
All right. Thanks Miranda.

So this is one of the greatest delicacies known to man, fresh Atlantic shrimp – fried, tossed in buffalo sauce, served with a little blue cheese on the side.

If you like great views, great food, a friendly staff, live music nightly, and oh, by the way, they’re open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sometimes I just come over here and hang out all day.

I’m Charlie Rymer. This is my hometown of Myrtle Beach, where we’ve got something for everybody.
