Very good restaurant!

This is a very good restaurant on Siesta Key in the village. The grouper sandwich is the best! You can sit outside or inside. There is a wide variety of food. The service was excellent.

This is a very laid back restaurant with a great food selection. It's just a bit outside of the main area in the village, but it comes with its own parking. The service was excellent & food was very good. You can just wear your shorts & be comfortable here. You can choose to eat inside or out, and you... More

This is another regular stop of ours in the village usually for a late lunch or dinner. It's a very laid back atmosphere inside, outside & at the bar but not as loud as most of the other eateries in the village. The food is also not fancy but there are a wide range of choices and after dozens of... More

We went there for lunch, I ordered the lobster roll. They gave a choice of chips or cole slaw. I felt for the price of the lunch they should have offered both, otherwise it was very tasty. Our server was very pleasant.

Fish and chips was decent and the atmosphere was friendly. Fries were very greasy. Service was OK, but not great. It took a while to get service initially and it was hit or miss after that.

Restaurant was not crowded, however, we were seated right be the noisy, dirty looking kitchen. Service was poor, in as much as I felt they were doing us a favor by waiting on us. My son and I had the shrimp platter, which was average. However, my husband ordered the oyster basket and the oysters came our burnt to a... More

We spent the afternoon at the beach, then decided to have dinner in the village. We live in the area, but hadn't tried salty dog before. We chose to sit outside, and turned on the "air curtain" so that we could feel the cool air even outside (perfect, right??). The waitstaff acted like they were walking through a waterfall to...

There's nothing elegant here, just good food and beautiful seaside tropical atmosphere. They are dog-friendly at the outdoor tables. (Thank you management guys!) Dine al fresco and watch the boats cruise by at NewPass. When you're done you can go visit Mote Marine Labs and see the dolphins. A very fun place.
