Finding a cool restaurant with great fish tacos for lunch is one of my hobbies. Friendly and quick service too.

There was a 15-20 minute wait for dinner. We ate indoors since it was so hot outside. Our server Trent was the best and only good thing about our experience at The Old Salty Dog. We ordered fried green beans and calamari for appetizers for our party of 5. Apps were okay since they were fried. My husband and son-in-law ordered The Loaded Dog as seen on Man Vs. Food! Don't order!!!! Very disappointed. The bun was soggy. The combination of condiments and other items didn't sit well with both of them and they are not picky eaters at all. The burgers were fine...regular burgers. My daughter ordered the shrimp tacos but were loaded with too much cole slaw. This was our last night on vacation and were extremely disappointed in the quality of the food. Trent was amazing and the only good thing about this restaurant. If you like fried food...this is the place for you.

What a disappointment this was! 11 people for celebrating our last night of vacation! Even ordered champagne to go around! Some of the food was ok-shrimp- most was fair. A few were awful! Hairs in my vegs!! Yuck! Servers were not friendly! The bill was over $400! And still no smile! Would not recommend!

Lots of personality, great staff, wonderful affordable food for everyone. Husband got the king crab legs and said they were perfect! We ate there twice in a week!

We stopped here on our way out of Siesta Key and we were glad we did. They had indoor and outdoor seating with a very casual atmosphere. The waitress was super friendly and attentive during our visit. We enjoyed the edamame salad, island tacos, a grouper rueben and a burger. All were very good. We will return when in Siesta Key again.
