Would recommend here for tasty muscles. Short walk from the beach. Great menu, funky decor with dollars signed and stuck all over the place. Great service and well organised.

Food was good. Got to like oysters tho. Menu had other options but the oysters were fresh and plentiful. The entertainment was outstanding and the beer was cold. Stop by !

Great oyster happy hour. They had a decent drink selection. If your looking for a nice dining experience, be aware the place is not well kept or unorganized.

Looks like a dump, diamond in the rough. Best place to eat at siesta hands down, eat here multiple times every time we go

We had a great time at S.K.O.B. Food was decent, prices moderate. Super friendly staff and very well organized. Although place was packed we did not have to wait for the table. We would definitelly go there again.
