Dead Dog Saloon - Sea Isle City, NJ

Were on vacation for a week and I see a sign for half price wings on Tuesday, so obviously I wouldn't pass on this place. After a few bad wings this past week, I needed to find some good wings quick. Luckily this place had some good wings. We walked into a dimly lit lounge area and were promptly greeted by the bartender. The restaurant is a two story bar. The saloon offers half price wings on Tuesdays from 5-9pm. I was surprised the bar didn't have more customers. We grabbed a table and I ordered my usual sugar free Red Bull. My friends took advantage of the special on Blue Moon Pitchers. The wings came in 7 varities ; Dead Dog House Sauce, Hot, BBQ, Terriyaki, Spicy Sweet , Garlic and Plain. I asked the waiter what he recommended and he quickly told us the House Sauce was the best. I ordered 10 of them , and 10 spicy sweet. My friends all ordered a variety of the rest of the sauces. While waiting for our order I checked out the bar. The bar has a nice 82 inch tv which is great for watching sports. I also found out the meaning behind the name of the bar. Apparently when the bar was under construction, the workers were frequently visited by a dog on a daily basis. The dog would even carry hammers to the workers. On one unfortunate day, the dog was struck by a car and killed. They asked the owner of the bar what they should do with the dog, the owner asked them to bury the dog on site and the building was built on top, and so the " Dead Dog Saloon" was created.
The wings came out and we all dove into our baskets. The waiter was right, the Dead Dog House Sauce was the best. We had mixed opinions on the Spicy Sweet wings. They were basically a form of Asian wings that I have had before. The hot sauce was more like a mild sauce. Garlic wings were just average. Overall the wings were a decent size and the service was good. If your in the area check out the house sauce. It taste like a mix of BBQ and a sweet Hot sauce. I'm probably going back tomorrow for another 10!
