Quaint, kooky place for Sunday Brunch. My favorite is Crab Cake Benedict! Best crab cake ever! Complimentary Bloody Mary's are really good also.

We stopped for a beverage after a 5 mile walk. We ordered the basic margarita. There was so much ice in the glass that we hardly got anything to drink. Aside from that, I sure didn't taste the Tequila.

Happy hour at SKOB is a must do on Siesta Key. Half price oysters, steamed or raw and Yuenlings lager on tap. Great bar/tiki hut atmosphere with live music. Located in the village area with lots to do near by.

This place is perfect for the beach vibe. Fast service and great food! Great live music makes you feel like you're on vacation. There's no better deal than the Happy Hour oyster specials. A definite must-stop spot!!

Visited snob after long day of travel to siesta key. The drinks , Moscow mules were definitely watered down, the food was served fast and the waiter was picking up your plate before you finished your last biteo

I seem to remember getting a drink special one of the times I was there but I don't recall whether there is a happy hour. Really?? You're on vacation. Does that really matter?

Description
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
