Great place to check out in SK. Great live music, friendly staff, plenty of outdoor seating, tvs, and seafood. Not too mention there is about 10000 dollars worth of singles hanging everywhere in the bar. Great place for adults or couples.

I seem to remember getting a drink special one of the times I was there but I don't recall whether there is a happy hour. Really?? You're on vacation. Does that really matter?

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
