Siesta Key Village Restaurants

When it comes to food, we have to mention Gilligan’s, SKOB, and Daiquiri Deck. They’re casual, “just off the beach” type places. Many newbies to the area enjoy the variety of food and drink that they offer. 

Gilligan’s has been a staple of the area since 2001 and is one of the best places to get delicious cocktails and top-quality food. Sit inside and watch the game or head outside to enjoy the sunshine while you sample nachos, seafood options, fried favorites, or one of their many selections of beer and wine. For a laid-back night with your friends, you can’t go wrong with a trip to Gilligan’s.

Siesta Key Oyster Bar, commonly abbreviated to SKOB, is another popular option in the area. Of course, you can rest assured that you’ll find delicious oysters here, but that’s not all that they’ve got on the menu. Enjoy live music and an exciting atmosphere while you dine on flatbreads, seafood classics, post options, sandwiches, burgers, and more. They even have a dedicated kids’ menu, perfect if you’re visiting with your family.

Last but not least is Daiquiri Deck. This destination is most well-known for its refreshing frozen daiquiris, but you can also find some crazy delicious meals on the menu. They’ve got all kinds of fresh seafood selections and fried food, burgers, pasta choices, soups and salads, and more.

When the sun starts to go down, that’s when Siesta Key Village truly comes alive! There’s some fantastic nightlife to discover here, whether you want something exciting and lively or want an incredible place to wind down the night with your friends. 

“Consistently fun and friendly” is what the Beach Club knows itself to be, and locals and visitors alike agree! That’s simply what it is: the Beach Club has got plenty to do, and at an affordable price, so you can enjoy yourself without breaking the bank. There are many other beach clubs nearby besides this main Siesta Key Beach Club, but this one, according to many, is the top spot. And its’ sink or swim’ happy hour specials, as they like to call them, are a great thing to get in on…. as is ladies’ night, to mention a couple of great ways to start. Check this place out during the evenings to get in on all the action!

As for the Siesta Key Wine Bar, one could write a whole book just on that to cover all the fantastic ways that you can have fun there. At this fabulous spot, you can take your pick and savor a wide range of different flavors until 8 p.m. Sunday through Thursday or until 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. If you’re wondering what kinds of wine you can get here, there’s a little something to suit every palate. The Peach Apricot, the Dragon Fruit, and the Conundrum are often the top 3 contenders. People seem to order them every single night! And if you find one you truly fall in love with, you can order from their selection of wines online and get them bottled and sent to your home anywhere in the USA! They offer both North American and International wines, by type, and even some local Florida Tropical wines. Heck, they’ve even got a few Port & dessert-type wines that you can get right there or online as well!

Finally, onto the LeLu Coffee Lounge. This establishment is a great place to start your day, but you can certainly have a great time ending your day here, too. One sip of this coffee will have you yearning for more. The special organic coffee they make here is really beyond compare; it’s no wonder this is one of the most popular shops in the village! It is sustainably sourced, quality roasted, and all in all, beach-famous in this area of the Siesta Key Village. It can’t get any better than that! And they even sell multiple types of blends such as Nicaraguan, Costa Rican, or Hawaiian. You can also shop the store online and buy other merch like a tote bag to go with your coffee or mugs. 

Hopefully, you’ve got a little sense of why you must include Siesta Key Village in your itinerary. We hope that the food, the nightlife, the shopping, the coffee, the beaches, and heck, the location itself, will more than suit your fancy.
