Super fun experience to drop in for a beer and put a dollar on the wall! Great time hanging out, bought some t-shirts and left a few dollars and a punk rock sticker! Bartender was fun and friendly and beer was normal priced!

My husband visited the Salty dawg when he was a teen living in Alaska with his Dad. His cousin remembered visiting in the 1980's. For them it has just gotten quirkier.

After being on a fishing charter all day, right by where people disembark is the Salty Dawg a place that is good to stop by for a drink and take in the "Salty Dawg culture". As everyone has stated, dollar bills are everywhere with messages...More

This place is unique. Even if you don't drink, like me, you can get a taste of how many visitors this place has had. Dollar bills and other assorted decorations adorn every square inch of wall and ceiling. All the other wood contains patron's carvings...More

Great bar with a fuzzy dollar feel on the inside......personalize and leave you door on the wall.......they say they clean the walls periodically and give the $20,000 or so to charities.....great concept

Words are hard to describe this icon. The entire interior is covered with dollar bills, names carved into tables, bras and men's boxers, etc. The 'salty dog' is grapefruit juice and vodka with a salted rim.

Very friendly staff. Dollar bills everywhere. Hanging from the ceiling, on the walls, everywhere. A small, but very busy establishment. I didn't stay there to eat.

Stopped for a quick Alaskan Ale, very friendly bartender, she definitely knew her stuff. Besides being an optical illusion inside it is just fun to talk with the other patrons. Don't miss stopping in, and leaving a dollar. They collect and give to local charities....More

This is a terrific hole-in-the-wall place with atmosphere to spare. It's a small bar, but really neat interior with thousands of dollar bills tacked to the walls,ceilings ,and everywhere else. Messages are signed on the bills and makes for a very cool scene.

I don't know about kids. Didn't see any when we were there. No food. It is definitely a dive bar.
