We went there on a weekend afternoon. I got the oyster and grouper bites. I wouldn't get either again there. I would go back for music and drinks though.

I'm a local. If I had to go to dinner on the key (usually don't because of traffic), I'd go to SKOB. The food is always good and the atmosphere is casual. Live music is a nice addition to the meal.

This was one of our favorite meals from our trip. We went during oyster happy hour and sat outside. The oysters were big, the drinks were cold and the music was great. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and hope to come back soon.

Siesta Key Oyster Bar is THE Hot Spot in Siesta Key Village! Come in and join us for great food, fresh oysters, cold beer, live music, and tons of fun!Siesta Key Oyster Bar (or as the locals call it "SKOB") is the hangout with the laidback, beachy atmosphere that will get you right into the Island Spirit. When you're at SKOB you feel right at home, like you're hanging out with good friends on your back patio (although chances are the ceiling of your patio is not covered in dollar bills).One of the things that sets SKOB apart from the other bars in Siesta Key Village is that we have some of the best food on the Key.Join us for Crustacean Happy Hour, every day from 3-6.1/2 price Oysters and Crawfish
