Fun spot for night life

Enjoyed some great music here out on the patio. The dancing fun spilled over into the sidewalks! We had appetizers and drinks and tried the famous Key Lime Pie in a mason jar. But the best thing was the chocolate martini!! Best ever!!

Visited this restaurant on the tip from a friend. We wanted great, fresh seafood, a great experience and moderately priced food. We were not disappointed! Loved the outside seating. Our waitress, Sam, was great! WE all loved our meal; buffalo shrimp appetizer, scallops meal for our son, extravaganza meal for both my husband and myself and we finished it off... More

Enjoyed the fish tacos and for dessert, the key lime pie served in a mason jar was tasty. The inside area is literally wallpapered all over with signed $1 bills. Lots of fun.

Probably our favorite place on our Ocean Blvd bar crawl. They were very welcoming of our doberman and made sure he had plenty of shade and water. Our server had great suggestions and the oysters were super clean. Not one speck of grit or shell. They are triple washed and very good. Half price at happy hour. Can't wait to... More

We had the dusted crawfish for An appetizer which was awesome. We got the larger plate to split which had grilled shrimp, fried grouper, crab cakes and two sides. Was about $25 but for two ppl was a good deal. Seemed like a fun place to hang out for some drinks and listen to music later

Family has been vacationing in Siesta Key for 15 years and if you want Oysters, Crayfish or Fish (we choose Blackened vs fried) you can not beat SKOB. A dozen Oysters or a full Crayfish boil at $7.00 during happy hour!! Recently added a Tuna steak BLT to the menu . . . ask for it rare and enjoy. Be... More

Based on recommendation of a boat captain we came here for dinner. I had the bacon chicken ranch flatbread with sweet potato fries and pineapple slaw. The fries were so good they nearly melted in your mouth. The flatbread was delicious. The "pineapple" slaw was a very good coleslaw, but definitely didnt taste any pineapple in it. The atmosphere was... More

Food was really good. Our waitress was awesome. Cool environment, love the money covered walls. It was nice to have live music. Our favorite dish was the calamari, nice and crisp and three great dipping sauces.

Good food, good live misic and a great choice of beers. We went there a few times during our week vacation. As I'm from the UK I was looking for a place that showed the Premier League Football and they were happy to put it on for me. Very friendly place
