Description: Siesta Key Oyster Bar is THE Hot Spot in Siesta Key Village! Come in and join us for great food, fresh oysters, cold beer, live music, and tons of fun!Siesta Key Oyster Bar (or as the locals call it "SKOB") is the hangout with the laidback, beachy atmosphere that will get you right into the Island Spirit. When you're at SKOB you feel right at home, like you're hanging out with good friends on your back patio (although chances are the ceiling of your patio is not covered in dollar bills).One of the things that sets SKOB apart from the other bars in Siesta Key Village is that we have some of the best food on the Key.Join us for Crustacean Happy Hour, every day from 3-6.1/2 price Oysters and Crawfish

Of all the bars we went to on our vacation this was our favorite. This is a great bar to hang out, have some drinks, and listen to live music. The food did not come out fast, but that was not why we were there. We ordered the Saku Tuna Ceviche (amazing) and Oysters, both Delicious!!! We saw Ben Hammond... More

It seems like you have to hit SKOB when visiting the key, but we had put it off for a long time. Great fish tacos, service was friendly and a good vibe inside. It can get crowded during high season and nights, but worth a stop

We were drawn in to this restaurant while walking by. The crowd was lively and friendly and there was a one man band performing country music. We ordered the buffalo chicken soup which was very good. The hamburger was well cooked and large. They have a nice variety of beer and wines. Also a list of specialty cocktails, that we... More

The Siesta Key Oyster Bar would make a great beach bar but it's not on the beach,, but on the main street in the tourist area. Not a problem. Everything else was in place - the terrific live music, the chic-grungy atmosphere, the young and energetic waitstaff, the plastic chairs and lots of customers having a great time. The real... More

SKOB is a must stop in Siesta Key. Whether it is happy hour or dinner, you can't go wrong. The Happy hour oyster are great. The calamari appetizer and the Grouper tacos are so delicious. One the best fish tacos I've had. Our server, Daniel, was super attentive and had a upbeat attitude. His service was exceptional. The music was... More
