We ate here twice, and husband actually ate here three times on our recent Florida trip. I liked dinner better than breakfast. The place is casual, relaxed, decent prices, and the food is good. Eating with a view is a plus!

Lobster rolls!!! That’s why we went. The crab dip was great too. Little bit of a wait, but service was outstanding. Worth it!

4/5/2018-I had fish tacos with grouper that was dry and rather tasteless which explains the boom boom sauce that normally comes with the order. The waitress thanked me for my comments and did not offer a discount.

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.
