“A Must”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Service was great and the food was super. Have burgers and hot dogs for lunch. I had the Fully Loaded Dog and had to share it, it was so big! Wash it down with a beer. Come back after dark for drinks. The place is super casual and fun.

“Great Food & Service”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

We were undecided as to where to eat one night and ended up here. Had we known how great of an experience it would be, we would've come earlier during our stay! The ONLY thing this place lacks is sufficient parking. On a Friday or Saturday night, it would be tough finding a parking place close. We got seated quickly and ordered drinks (best mojito I had the entire trip). Our server was funny, knowledgeable, and helpful without ever being too pushy. We ordered the mozzarella sticks for an appetizer which were yummy. The best thing, however, is their signature salty dog. I had mine with cheese and bacon and it was incredible. Yes, probably not the healthiest dinner, but surely one of the tastiest! If you are visiting Siesta Key, do yourself a favor and try this place out. You won't be disappointed, and you WON'T leave hungry!

“Enjoyed our visit”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We had a great server, who was enthusiastic about the food and recommended the pina colada to drink. I ordered one and it was very large and very good! We had one of the specials of the night, a sirloin and lobster tail with two sides. Steak was okay, lobster was delicious. We love their jalapeño poppers appetizer and make sure we get an order every time we visit Siesta Key. All in all we were satisfied customers.

“Loved the food, Loved the service.”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

It has been 2 years since I last ate here. We walked up and were greeted immediately and seated. Our waitress Cindy was amazing and very attentive to our every need. She was knowledgeable about menu items, which is always a plus. Our drinks were always full and our food was served quickly. Two in our group ordered the "Loaded Salty Dog" as featured on Man Vs. Food and were not disappointed. The hot dog was huge, more than enough for one person, and tasty. The grilled chicken is a heaping serving of boneless chicken served with two sides; amazing. The blackened Mahi Mahi was very tasty, with a little kick, also served with two side. Great portions and the prices aren't bad for all you get. Probably our best dining experience this trip to Siesta. We will make this an annual dining experience when visiting Siesta Key.

“Not much”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

This might be a better place for lunch than dinner? We've been here before and the food & especially the service was much better. I had fish & chips while my wife had shrimp dinner. Both were over battered and bland and neither came with hush puppies. The service was terrible and they weren't crowded as we were there before 6 pm. I'm sure you can find better food,service and prices in the Siesta Key area.
