It was a fun place to go. We got a seat right away in this super busy place. The employees were busy and we had good service. A group from Chicago was watching a football game and cheering. We had good appetizers. My husband ordered...More

This was an unforgettably bad experience. We arrived at around 11:30 pm on our way home from a wonderful day. Our initial impression was the 60+ crowd was quite drunk. All we were hoping for was a nice drink and a midnight snack. Yet, the...More

Great for a grown-up only happy hour and a lunch/dinner out with the kids. Great service, good food and diverse drink selection. Really fun live music too!

After a nice long walk on beautiful Siesta Key Beach, we stopped for drinks and a quick lunch at SKOB. We ordered the shrimp tostada and crawfish boil, both of which were good. The live music on the deck was a welcome added feature.

Nice atmosphere! Live band! Service good! Food not so good! We waited almost 2 hours for a table. We ordered grilled Shrimp and Scallops. Three Shrimp and three Scallops arrived on a bed of rice with mushrooms. Food was bland. We were disappointed.

They don't take reservations, but they take 30 minute call ahead to put you on a list and will text you when it is ready. Nice, so you can walk around Siesta Key while waiting and shop a bit. We were seated inside which was...More

In season with all the tourists, nearly impossible to get into. Parking in Siesta Key is always tricky. Good finish to a beach day. Usually great service & bartenders in the bar.
