Description: Serving Sarasota for Over 25 years!The Old Salty Dog first opened its door for business in Siesta Key Village back on November 1st 1986. The owners original concept was to take a small popular village beer and hot dog stand and turn it into a casual Restaurant and Pub. They have mixed the best of the Florida Keys and their British heritage to create a fun family environment that is appealing to people from all walks of life.There are now 2 locations and they are patronized not only by their many regular local customers and characters but they also enjoy abundant new and repeat business from all over the United States and from around the World.

This restaurant is famous for its battered and fried hot dogs. The loaded one was featured on a television show (Man vs Food). It comes with sour kraut, grilled onion and mushrooms, melted cheese and bacon or you can pick your toppings. You get a choice of a side. The fries are not consistent so the slaw may be a better choice. There are lots of items on the menu including burgers and seafood. The draft beer is served in plastic cups but you can get bottled beer that is colder. There are tables, high tops and barstools for seating. A table always takes longer to get. The stools at the hightops have nice footrests. Parking is limited and may require you to circle or to walk in. There seems to always be a wait. The water views are beautiful and worth the wait. It is a fun place.
