We heard all about the Siesta Key Oyster Bar. I love oysters, and could not wait! The service was great! The hostess, waiter were very friendly and helpful. The Oysters, Terrible! small, mutilated in large shells. If a place has oysters as their namesake, they should take pride in serving top quality oysters, shucked properly. Major disappointment!

We love this place and always come here at least twice every time we are in Siesta Key. The food is great, beer is cold, great locals and AMAZING live music every time we are there. Do not miss SKOB. We never do!!

We stopped here for a meal and some cocktails. The Crab and Oysters were all very nice. They had a band playing outside while we ate which was great! Good service too.

Food was amazing! It was very "gourmet" and even slightly fancy. We did not expect that coming from the appearance of the place. It proves to be very popular with locals and tourists, alike.

Had a nice dinner with live music and a good vibe. My wife had the fish tacos and I had a chicken sandwich with fries. Fries were awesome and the sandwich was good. The mahi mahi tacos were good. We had some amazing key lime pie for dessert!

My Wife and I tried here for an afternoon snack based on the positive reviews. Was not too crowded for a Sunday, start of NFL games, but parking was non-existent. Took a long time to attract a server but once she decided our table was hers she was attentive. We ordered the Oyster special, one dozen of steamed oysters for... More

We are sorry that you did not like your Oyster Size. We also gave you an additional 1/2 dozen for the smaller size. As the manager explained to you, sometimes, mother nature just plays havoc on oysters. These warm months are hard to get the larger oysters consistently. We do pay a premium to get the best oysters in the... More

Good food / drink with live music. Food is very good. My husband ordered fish tacos and received shrimp tacos by mistake --they were so good, we didn't even complain. I had a cobb salad with chicken and that too was great - large portion. The waiter was friendly and attending and if it wasn't for the wait time, we... More

You will not find this quality of oysters at the majority of most restaurants in Sarasota. The price is incredible during happy hour. I recommend the fish tacos. When amberjack is in season they make a great blackened fish taco.

We had oysters, crawfish and fried fish platters. Everything was great. Enjoyed cheap Yuengling beer and excellent live music. Highly recommend! Only complaint: parking stinks. It took forever to find a spot. But glad we perservered, cause it was worth it.
