Good for drinks.

Went here for lunch on 8/16. It's a cool looking bar and margarita's were good. The food was good but I don't know that I would go back here for food with so many other choices in the area. I had a grouper sandwich and it was fine but not great.

We heard music and came in hostess sat is towards the back and found 2 stools and made ourselves comfortable......10 minutes later we are still sitting there with zero service. Server walked by us about 4 times and didn't even acknowledge us. Needless to say we were thirsty so we left.

This bar and restaurant is on the main drag of Siesta Key - Ocean Blvd. It is very casual. The menu is not anything spectacular - but good solid casual food. They often have entertainment and that livens everything up.

We always eat at Gilligan's when in SK. The food is good and reasonably priced. Drinks are tasty. Buckets of beer deals are worth it. Make sure to check it out on Saturday afternoons for the Blues Service with Acoustic Pete and Company. Great tunes.

Good place for drinks. Didn't try the food. Later at night, the place gets busy. Drink prices were very reasonable.

I like coming here for happy hour,it is a fun time lots of people come and go,,sometimes they have parties and the food they bring out for free is great,and atleast when you do come back you know the food doesn't stink when you actually come for more than just drinks
