salty dog was a great place overall, but my gripe was that there was too many southern brooklyn/staten island goombas all over. as a staten islander, if i truly wanted this crowd, i could have stayed on my side of the verazzano. but otherwise, its a place i would have definetly enjoyed in a less homogenous crowd. i dont think ive actually ever seen such a mass collection of gold chains in my life. salty dog is a great place to get drunk with your friends, but not a place if youre not looking to meet a guido, or a thug.
if the guys who own the bar are reading this:
PLEASE, PLEASE add another stall in the womens room. its like tokyo in there.
Pros: good drinks, decent atmosphere
Cons: guido central, homogenous crowd, pain to find parking
