A place that I went back twice since the first was incredible. Friendly and fast service, great atmosphere, happy hour of 50% off oysters, fresh food in all areas. A place NOT to be missed!

Stopped by with newly relocated friends on Super Bowl Sunday for dinner. I was thrilled to discover their Happy Hour special - 1/2 priced doz. of raw oysters. What a wonderful treat for me! The food was great, the live music entertaining and the servers friendly and attentive (one server gave his jacket to a shivering customer). We returned two... More

Walked by this restaurant/bar when we were in Siesta Key and were enticed by the live music and casual look to the outdoor bar. Very fun and friendly wait staff and lively feeling establishment. Had beers and oysters and listened to the band and had a great afternoon. Not fancy, but fun. Will be back!

We went during happy hour for half priced oysters. My fiancé had the tuna blt and said it was cooked perfectly with great flavor. Wide selection of beers to choose from. Excellent service, Adam answered all of our questions and was fantastic! Sit outside and enjoy the environment! While not on the beach, it is on the main Ocean Blvd... More

The food is not what you would expect from a casual place on the Key. The chef really knows what he's doing here! Not your typical bar food! If you like clam chowder, you must try it here. You won't find it better than at SCOB!

My husband and I went here to watch the superbowl Sunday evening. Right before the superbowl started, they had live music, great food specials, and a really cool environment. All of the wait staff was very nice and helpful as well. The fried calamari was excellent!

We visited this place several times and were able to sit outside even when it was cool due to the great heaters. The raw oysters were consistently excellent quality! Loved the live entertainment and don't forget their special key lime pie!

This was a Chicago bar- which is awesome because we are from Chicago! Live music on a Monday night and a great ambiance. Dollar bills hang from the walls to show all who have visited. Awesome service (thanks Adam) and great food. The steamed potstickers were amazing! I highly suggest it if you are visiting. Oh yeah- and I brought... More
