We ate here a few days ago, and the food was very tasty. The grouper sandwich was tender and flavorful and my brother in law really liked his po boy sandwich. The conch fritters were also good.

The half priced oysters during happy hour is a deal that cannot be missed. Great service and great atmosphere. The only thing that keeps this from being a 5 star review is them taking the seafood boil off the menu! It was the best meal...More

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
