Great place to hang out for a few cocktails, happy hour, appetizers, or to have a full delicious meal. Never ventured inside, but love the outdoor seating options.

7 bucks for a dozen oysters? (Used to be $6, but I'm not complaining) Good drinks reasonably priced, at least for a transplanted New Yorker. Fun resorty atmosphere, good bands.

This is in cute area of Siesta key with lots of shops all around. Deck with tables and inside dinning. We eat outside on deck with our dog. They had live entertainment, food was good and waiter was nice.

Nice happy hour......good beach feel. Enjoyed sitting outside at the back bar. Music was fun and bartenders were friendly. We had the oysters which were good and person next to me had a salad that looked outstanding. Definite stop if you go into the village.

Great place for live music, Oysters and Steamed clams. I was feeling adventurous and got the Guacamole Egg Rolls with black bean dipping sauce. Not a good menu item but glad I tried it once.

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
