A true beach bar in the heart of Siesta Key Village, SKOB as it is affectionately known by locals, is a laid-back bar with attitude and atmosphere. Sit outside if you can and soak up the sounds of the village and the smells of the sea. We love the fried oysters and their fried clams, served with a delectable sauce. Open for Happy Hour every day from 3-6, you can get 12 Raw Oysters for $7 or Louisiana Crawfish for $7. The food is good for bar food and the beer is cold. It's fun too.
The Cottage is in the center of Siesta Key Village and as such, a short trip from West of the Trail neighborhoods, Palmer Ranch and downtown Sarasota. Siesta Key Village is a true beach village, with that great ambiance of cafes, boutiques, casual stops for ice cream or looking for that souvenir hat. It has a great vibe as a beach restaurant and can best be described as serving food from farm to fusion with a little Peruvian, Spanish, South American and a touch of eclectic cooking thrown in. There are tapas, burgers, and full dinners, but the menu is so varied and different, we're sure you'll enjoy whatever you order. The Cottage is particularly wonderful right before sunset, because of its proximity to the Gulf and the amazing light that's produced at that time of the day near the water. Enjoy one of their famous and fabulous craft cocktails outside on the patio and afterwards try a Grilled Flatbread with pulled short rib, curry aioli, crumbled bleu cheese topped with a bed of farm fresh wild arugula and finished with roasted onion vinaigrette drizzle; or try the Teriyaki Mahi Sliders with Asian coleslaw, pickled ginger and wasabi mayo; or what many diners choose, the Lobster Sliders, with fresh Maine lobster salad with ginger, truffle, cilantro and celery. After dining, The Cottage is close enough to take a stroll on the beach, whether during the day or evening. Enjoy!
The Table Creekside is one of our favorite restaurants. Sited on Phillipi Creek, dining at the Table presents a relaxed ambiance with a casual but cool vibe. We love their Happy Hour, their craft cocktails and wine selections. We often spend a special occasion here celebrating with fabulous, sophisticated food. Start with a Global Bite like Crispy Oyster Flamenco with key lime aioli and banana pepper mignonette or Crispy Organic spring Chicken Roll with fontina, portabellas, and apple carrot slaw. The Poached Pear Salad is delicious with organic greens, glazed almonds, farmer's cheese and orange blossom vinaigrette. The Short Rib Tortelloni with asparagus bisque, organic wilted spinach, and shaved manchego is delectable but my absolute favorite is the Lobster Carbonara....1 1/4 lbs. of Maine lobster with papparadelle, English cheddar, gruyere, and homemade pancetta. Fantastic desserts too. The Table also offers a Daily Feature.
