Great location in the heart of "downtown" and there was good live music.This restaurant was very busy but our server still did a great job keeping up with us. The food overall was decent but the real reason we went was for raw oysters - unfortunately, they were luke-warm at best when delivered and the crackers were stale.

We like to frequent different places, and spend locally. S.K.O.B. is a place we haven't been to in a while. They have a wonderful Sunday brunch, (and the BEST Bloody Mary's on The Key!) They have totally redone their menu since we were last there. Absolutely a must go to while on Siesta Key!

My husband found a new fave beer here - Big Top's Key Lime Wheat! We met friends here for drinks, apps, and dinner. Not a ton of gluten free options, but I did manage to find the Scallops with Risotto- and it was awesome! Keep in mind it's $24 and you get four scallops- that's right, 4. I don't think... More

Really good seafood. Lunch was delicious. Our server was very good and patient with our large group. Very good value. If I had to criticize one thing it would be the parking.

Great beach place. Fresh seafood, some with a quirky Asian hint. Blackened fish my favorite. Local music the nights we went. So good the first night we went back the next We'll be back!

Overpriced for average food and small portions. One person in our party got a sea scallops dish that was approximately $24. It included 4 scallops, some risotto and a few green beans. Another person in our party got the Mac and Cheese and it was $15 for Mac and Cheese and two pieces of bread. Much better options in Siesta... More

SKOB has the best happy hour. Half off oysters can't be beat! Good food, good beer and good service. It does get very crowded, but even at its busiest we didn't wait more than 20 minutes for a table.

We were seated at a table on the covered patio, our waiter brought us water and asked for drink order. My wife didn't want anything other than water and I asked if they served coke or Pepsi thinking I would have a Bacardi and Diet Coke, when he told me Pepsi I said nothing for now. That was the last... More

Food was good, don't expect anything great. Service was good but had to sit outside and was a little hot. A good place to grab something after the beach.
