The Salty Dog Bar & Grill was opened on June 15th, 2009 by current owners Jayme & Brian. Jayme & Brian met in 1999 working together at the Old Chicago in the Old Market of Downtown Omaha. With over 35 years of combined restaurant experience, Jayme and Brian knew exactly what kind of restaurant they wanted to open when the time came. A neighborhood bar that was warm and welcoming with scratch made food and friendly service. How The Salty Dog got its name is an interesting story in itself. Brian and Jayme had very limited funds to open their new restaurant, so they purchased one that had closed named "The Longest Yard". After learning that a new sign was going to cost over $10,000, they needed to figure out another solution. The answer was in the existing sign, which consisted of individual "cans" that could be rearranged. They sat down with a group of close family and friends and started playing jumble with the letters that were in the current sign. When all seemed lost Jayme's brother Trevor belted out "The Salty Dog", and the rest as they say is history.
The Salty Dog has become pretty well known for our signature CharBuff Wings. The Salty Dog is the highest rated wing joint in the Omaha/Council Bluffs metro area on Yelp. Brian and Jayme spent years getting off work late and not being able to get a decent meal late night,so, The Salty Dog kitchen serves food until 2:00 am every night of the week and we never close for a holiday.
