Who told this place it was cool to hang gross dollar bills everywhere? Place smelled moldy and they are not attentive to customers. Went in and sat in their “outdoor patio” which is more like a moldy garage, knew bad sign when menus were dirty,...More

The SKOB food was so good, we cleaned our plates! The crab cake was almost all meat, the blackened grouper was so fresh and delicious.

Great oyster house in siesta key! Check out happy hour when they have some awesome deals. Not too pricey and good food. A great place to stop for a quick bite or dinner.

I absolutely loved this restaurant. I was traveling solo on my way to Naples and wanted to stop by Siesta Key and see what all the noise was about this area. Now I get it. It’s just so nice and chill. SKOB did not disappoint....More

Great food and superior service! The walls are completely covered with DOLLAR BILLS that patrons have put up. It's noisy, but definitely THE place to go for all the local atmosphere!

Slight wait but enjoyed my meal. Wife not as happy with her Salmon dish and sides, I enjoyed my Seafood Extravaganza.

The waitress was great and made some great suggestions. The grouper sandwich was very good. We will be back on Sunday for the 5k race (each week) and the brunch

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
