Although this has the beach bar atmosphere, we have eaten here multiple times and the food has been very good. I typically get a fish dinner and it has always been great. It does have a tacky beach bar atmosphere. The service has been very good everytime we have gone. We always eat here when we stay at Siesta Key

The food was great and economical. Service was good. Dined outdoors while listening to live music. Only thing that would have made it better would be a water view!

We just love this place. We always sit at the bar inside and this give a fabulous view of the deck and people watching. Afternoons and evening there is always live music on the deck. The food is great, all sauces and dressings are made fresh in house. Not a big fan of fish but their fresh caught fish is... More

The best fish tacos we have ever had. My wife and I shared those and half a dozen raw oysters. We both agreed the tacos were the best we had ever tasted...and the oysters weren't bad either. Good atmosphere, music, and service.

The wife and I recently stopped in to the SKOB for the Happy Hour Oysters Special and was very much delighted. I had an order of raw oysters, an order of steamed oysters AND an order of the lobster bites (!!!!) And all were excellent. My wife had a bacon cheeseburger and said it was one of the best she...

I've been to Siesta Key at least a dozen times. Although I have always wanted to try SKOB, I never seemed to make it there until last week. The place always looked and sounded lively and I love raw oysters so I decided we needed to go this trip. We went on a Tuesday night and arrived during happy hour.... More

We stopped in for the Sunday brunch and were blown away by the breakfast sandwich and the bloody mary's! We went back many times and loved the live entertainment and the atmosphere. Be sure to staple your dollar bill on the ceiling when you are there!
