Came here with my in laws. Had two children and were well-accommodated despite it not appearing necessarily well-suited for the little ones. But food was great and has the classic stick-a-dollar-to-the-wall schtick. Also has low key music performances. Service was friendly and efficient.

Everything we’ve eaten here is great! It’s always packed and they usually have live music. Great margaritas!

This is a classic Siesta Key spot. Great food and great people watching spot. The bands that they have at night are always top notch and mot too loud, so that you can still eat and have a conversation.

My husband and I enjoyed a platter of blackened grouper, jerk shrimp, and a crab cake. It was delicious and quick. That is something to be said because the place was insanely packed. This place has fantastic local seafood!

SKOB has excellent ratings, so we thought it would be a safe bet for Sunday lunch. The grouper was good, but not exceptional, but the salad relied on quantity rather than quality and lacked flavour. However, if you like so much noise that you cannot...More

Great atmosphere.. Great Sliders Great Drinks, but Slower than expected Service.. However to be fair, it was a weekend evening. Its great to see a good crowd, but it wouldn't hurt to have enough staff on hand to handle over flow.. Just my opinion.

It's been a few months since we have been there, the parking isn't good but the food and atmosphere is. Sometimes live music, that is fun. Go with a group or just the two of you, I promise you will have a good time.
