Anna’s is Siesta Village’s long-standing spot for hefty sandwiches.

BELLA ROMA 5239 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-0995 or bellaromaitalianrestaurant.com
You’ll find traditional Italian cuisine, with an exceptional array of pasta and risotto, at this small Siesta Village restaurant.

BIG OLAF 5208 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-9392
For decades, this shop has provided cold treats to overheated locals and tourists, usually decadent ice cream piled into Olaf’s trademark waffle cones.

BLASÉ CAFÉ 5263 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-9822 or theblasecafe.com
This funky spot serves an array of interesting appetizers focused on seaside seafood, along with standard modern American fine dining entrées.

BLU SMOKE 149 Avenida Messina, Siesta Key, 346-0738 or blusmokeislandgrill.com
This restaurant features traditional barbecue mixed with interesting open-fire grilling, along with a variety of sides.

BROKEN EGG 1140 Avenida Messina, Siesta Key, 346-2750 or thebrokenegg.com
Broken Egg caters to its devoted fanbase in the heart of Siesta Village, complete with cute outdoor dining carved on a deck that juts out into its parking lot.

CAFÉ GABBIANO 5104 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-1423 or cafegabbiano.com
Pietro Migliaccio’s hearty, NY-influenced Italian fare has that distinctive balance of rusticity and elegance that is the hallmark of great Italian-American cuisine, the kind of elusive qualities that chains and even most independent places fail to replicate. The outdoor area is covered and elegant.

CAPTAIN CURT’S 1200 Old Stickney Point Road, Siesta Key, 349-3885 or captaincurts.com
Award-winning clam chowder, live music and big plates of steamed seafood with sides of butter highlight this casual spot near Siesta’s south bridge.

CITY PIZZA 6645 Midnight Pass Road, Siesta Key, 349-4490
This south Siesta staple still serves amazing New York pies featuring floppy slices and incredibly gooey cheese. The dough is chewy and flavorful and the setting is perfect — sea breeze blowing, palm trees swaying.

CLAYTON’S SIESTA GRILLE 1256 Old Stickney Point Road, Siesta Key, 349-2800 or claytonssiestagrille.com
You can get three squares a day at Clayton’s — breakfast to dinner — all of it tailored to the elegant island setting that decorates this restaurant just off the south bridge to Siesta.

THE COTTAGE 153 Avenida Messina, Sarasota, 312-9300
This tiny spot just off the main drag in Siesta Key Village is the new home of chef Darwin Santa Maria, the island setting a perfect match with his considerable talent with seafood. At theCottage, his dishes are mostly small plates, but with big flavor.

DAIQUIRI DECK 5250 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-8697 or daiquirideck.com
It’s not all fried fish sandwiches and long rows of alcoholic slurpee machines at Daquiri Deck. Owners expanded the Deck a couple years back and added in an extensive raw bar menu to up the non-frozen options.

GILLIGAN’S ISLAND BAR AND GRILL 5253 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 346-8122 or gilligansislandbar.com
The usual lineup of bar food and boat drinks at a lively nightspot.

THE HUB BAJA GRILL 5148 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-6800 or thehubsiestakey.com
The Hub looks like a tourist spot thanks to acres of faux island décor. Still, it’s difficult to argue with a big, open-air covered deck that sits right on the sidewalk in the center of Siesta activity.

JAVIER’S 6621 Midnight Pass Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-1792 or javiersrestaurant.com
Before the Peruvian invasion came to Sarasota in the form of Selva Grill and a handful of other restaurants, Javier’s was serving anticuchos and ceviche in a calm and elegant spot on south Siesta.

JO-TO JAPANESE STEAK HOUSE 5218 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 346-8366 or jotosteakhouse.com
Jo-To has a humble facade in Siesta Village, but behind that door are the chop-socky shenanigans of tableside teppanyaki and the only sushi on the key.

LOBSTER POT 5157 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-2323 or sarasota-lobsterpot.com

LELU COFFEE LOUNGE 5251 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 346-5358 or lelucoffee.com
Lelu is a full service spot, with everything from breakfast sandwiches and a cup o’ joe to caffeinated martinis and blue cheese sliders.

Seems strange to head out to a Florida barrier island for New England-style seafood, but the absurdly rich lobster bisque and a bucket of steamers will quickly convince you that seafood has no borders.

MIGUEL’S 6631 Midnight Pass Road, Siesta Key, 349-4024 or miguelsrestaurant.net
Amidst a sea of bar food and casual spots on Siesta, Miguel’s stands out as the most refined traditional restaurant on the island. Here you’ll find Continental classics with a focus on French cuisine.

NAPOLI’S 5242 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 345-2452
Great pies and standard casual Italian fare, with slices sold from the outdoor courtyard on busy nights.

OLD SALTY DOG 5023 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-0158 or theoldsaltydog.com
The grouper sandwich is very good, the beer is cold and domestic, but the biggest draw for the OSD can be summed up in six words: beer-battered, deep-fried hot dog.

OPHELIA’S 9105 Midnight Pass Road, Siesta Key, 349-2212 or opheliasonthebay.net
Most Siesta restaurants get away with either hiding away behind a strip mall façade or amping the village’s island-party theme for atmosphere. Ophelia’s, however, fits the island better than all the rest. The high-end food is elegant and composed, but the location — mere feet away from the mangrove islands of an Intracoastal offshoot — is fabulous. Depending on the weather, and the bugs, try to reserve one of the tables placed right on the deck where you can eat to the natural music of jumping fish and buzzing cicadas.


SIESTA KEY OYSTER BAR 5238 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 346-5443 or skob.com
SKOB is another spot that references the wood and surf theme common to Siesta Village pubs, but here it feels a little more natural, in large part to a staff that’s turned it into a popular haunt for regulars. The food is standard bar and Floribbean fare.

SIESTA SMEAG’S 5263 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-9494
Good pizza from a place with a name that more evokes Lord of the Rings than New York pie.

SOLORZANO BROTHERS PIZZERIA 215 Avenida Madera, Siesta Key, 349-2767 or solorzanobrospizzeria.com
Big, New York pizza in the heart of the village, from a family that owns several Sarasota Italian spots.

SUN GARDEN CAFÉ 210 Avenida Madera, Siesta Key, 346-7170 or siestasungarden.com
Owned by former downtown Sarasota restaurateurs Suzanne and Rick Monroe, Sun Garden stands out from the rest of the village’s many breakfast spots. The sweet potato pancakes — topped with sweet almond butter — will cause cravings, and the fried baloney sandwich ain’t far behind.

TURTLES 8875 Midnight Pass Road, Siesta Key, 346-2207 or turtlesrestaurant.com
Way down on the southernmost section of the island, Turtles is a casual joint that serves bar items and fresh seafood across from Turtle Beach.

VILLAGE CAFÉ 5133 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-2822 villagecafeonsiesta.com
Village Café is another entrant in the crowded Siesta breakfast scene, but it’s managed to hold its own for years against the other village powerhouses.

With one of the liveliest bar scenes in town, mostly packed into Siesta Village, Siesta Key is a destination for both locals and tourists.  That mix can be quite entertaining, with some of the best people watching in town.  You're likely to see bathing suits as club wear, even late into the night at some Siesta Key bars.

BEACH CLUB
The Beach Club is known for its live entertainment. It has live music or a live DJ every night of the week, a healthy dance scene and a few pool tables for more chill enjoyment.5151 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-6311

Besides the award-winning clam chowder, Captain Curts has a lively bar scene, live music and regular karaoke nights.
1200 Old Stickney Point Road, Siesta Key, 349-3885 or captaincurts.com

CRESCENT CLUB
One of the oldest bars in Sarasota, the Crescent Club is a dark but convivial place that caters to regulars and local interested in soaking up the comfort of a stool and a drink more than the sun and sand.
6519 Midnight Pass Road, Siesta Key, 349-1311

DAIQUIRI DECK
5250 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-8697 or daiquirideck.com
This giant open-air bar and restaurant serves its traditional high-octane slushies out of swirling machines, great to take the edge off both a thirst and the heat, along with killer alcoholic oyster shooters.

GILLIGAN’S ISLAND BAR AND GRILL
A lively nightspot featuring inside dance and live music and an extensive shady courtyard and outdoor bar.
5253 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 346-8122 or gilligansislandbar.com

THE HUB BAJA GRIL
The Hub looks like a tourist spot thanks to acres of faux island décor. Still, it’s difficult to argue with a big, open-air covered deck that allows the expansive interior/exterior bar patron to look out over the busy main drag of Siesta Village.
5148 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 349-6800 or thehubsiestakey.com

LELU COFFEE LOUNGE
Coffee shop by day, chill lounge by night, featuring a list of special caffeinated martinis that will give you the energy for a Siesta Village pub crawl.
5251 Ocean Blvd., Siesta Key, 346-5358 orlelucoffee.com

SIESTA KEY OYSTER BAR
SKOB is another spot that references the wood and surf theme common to Siesta Village pubs, but here it feels a little more natural, in large part to a staff that’s turned it into a popular haunt for regulars. The food is standard bar and Floribbean fare.

It is within walking distance from Turtle Beach on the south end of Siesta Key.
