It's a bar, restaurant, and has music! The bar is filled with dollar bills signed and placed on its walls and the few tables facing the sidewalk are a great place to people watch as you listen to music and have a drink/food.

This is a must if you're visiting Siesta Key! The food was delicious, the drinks were great and the live entertainment made it!!! Service was great too!!! Indoor and outdoor seating, but the outdoor seating was my favorite. Family friendly too.

They had wonderful happy hour specials offering $7 raw oysters and $7 crawfish. Beer was a little pricey, but typical of a beach bar. Very friendly and helpful staff.

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
