Always predictably fresh seafood options. Love the sunset times with a margarita and peel and eat shrimp. We go between meals and appetizers as we enjoy both, especially the grouper. Always busy so don’t get discouraged by the Parking challenges. It’s worth it!

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.
