Fun place to hang out and listen to music. The place is really small so if you just want to sit at the bar it's hard to find a seat most nights and the service is horribly slow so bring your patience. Regardless, we enjoy going there.

The daily happy hour of half priced oysters is awesome. $7 for a dozen Apalachicola oysters on the half shell was great.

Went during a torrential downpour, and the staff was upbeat and fun throughout our time there. Fun vibe, great drinks, and delicious food.

Skob is a staple Blackened fish and French fries are great. Hamburgers were dry this visit. We went late at night. It was too loud for my kids or any conversation but more error as parents for the choice of restaurant. Had it been only adults we would have loved the band.

The food, live music, and service was fantastic! Even though it is all outdoor seating, it wasn't bad at all. The oysters are good and fresh and the drinks are made well.

There drink list had an amazing variety and the food was amazing (the Big Boil and BBQ Chicken were delicious), but the service really made our visit memorable. The place... More

Everything we had was awesome. We were sat outside by the musician, it was a little loud and made enjoying ourselves difficult and his choice of music wasn't appropriate for the two young kids we had in our party.
