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

Visited midweek, easy seating on the outdoor patio. Enjoyed live music, and great service. Started with delicious Grouper Bites, tender, flaky fish lightly breaded and deep fried with tasty house tarter sauce, yum! Pan Seared Scallops and Shrimp were fabulous, as were the sides - mushroom risotto and asparagus. friends ordered fish n chips, peel n eat shrimp and SKOB salad, all were delightful! Favorite meal during a week's vacation. Even bought a t-shirt to remember a great visit! definitely will return on our next visit!

Top 3 restaurant in Sarasota. Oysters are always perfect and a great selection of specialty oysters from Chesapeake bay too. The James Rivers and Blue Points were terrific. Blackened Grouper "Keith's Tacos" are the best in town. We've also had the wings, blackened shrimp Caesar Salad and Ahi "BLT" - all amazing. We make the trek at least once a week to get our SKOB fix :-)

During happy hour the raw oysters on half shell are only $7 a dozen. Service was great and I had a tuna BLT which was a nice version of the sandwich.
Finished it with a keylime pie served in a mason jar. Delicious. Going back again soon!

We had flat bread for lunch with shrimp. Taste was ok... I also had in addition a shrimp cake which was poorly seasoned. All in all place was attractive beach bar. Looking at meals flying by I think we made average choice this time. Definitely will return to verify potential...
