    Great Spot for People & Pets!

    The food and service were excellent. We had a nice table on the covered patio and our server Omar, was super friendly and helpful. Parking is an issue, there are not many spots so we ended up in the private park garage that we had to pay for.

    Very welcoming of my dog

    Dogs allowed on their covered patio. Host is located outside so you can walk up with your dog. Team will bring water for your dog if you ask. They offer a separate menu for dogs (burger, hot dog, or chicken).

    3 locations!

    We have been to 2 of them! City Island - this one is right on the marina. Great bar and seating. Siesta Key - this one is right one Ocean. Nice shady front porch. Menu is good - hot dogs, burgers, salads. Full bar, specialty drinks. They cater to dogs and will make a plain hot dog, fish, or chicken for your pooch! The 3rd location is in Venice, FL - I have not visited that location yet!

    Great food, great customer service!

    We visited the Siesta Key location yesterday with our dog. She was greeted by our great waitress and right away given bowl of water and treats. My husband and I are not big eaters and it was lunch time so we asked to share the crab claw meal. Wow it was amazing. They even split it on two plates for us. We are going to try out the Venice location next as on the water. Great place.

    Combination, satisfaction...

    The folks at Old Salty Dog treat pets extremely well. Brought our Yorkie a bowl of water and gave us option for a meal for him. Outside seating was excellent and they gave us options.

    Had a good meal and nice time with my dog!

    Found this restaurant on this site and was in the area and stopped by. The food was good and my dog was welcomed! One of the first things given to us was a bowl of water for him. It was nice to find a place to take him and have a good meal. Highly recommend!

    Nice atmosphere and barely average food for price

    Nice waterfront view and dogs each got their ice water quickly. The food was barely average and expensive. The fried grouper was so greasy it was not edible and the turkey sandwich was given to the dogs.

    Very dog friendly

    As soon as we arrived, we were seated on the completely shaded patio, and water and dog biscuits were brought out for the pups. We were impressed with how welcomed our dogs were by the staff. Several servers stopped to talk to our dogs and pet them.

    The only negative was the quality of food for the price. We weren't impressed with anything we ordered, except for the hot dog we got for the pups. That was excellent. We thought the rest of the food was average at best.

    Overall, it was a nice patio on which to eat with very friendly staff.

    Great Stop

    We did a day trip up from Sanibel Island and stopped for lunch. Great atmosphere and very dog friendly. She got her bowl of water first and really enjoyed her hot dog. Food was good, service was great and the prices were reasonable for this area. Definitely a place to come back to.

    Great place for me to enjoy myself

    My people had fun and my Aunt had the best hot dog with all types of toppings that I ever saw. The nice people there brought me a big bowl of water and I felt comfortable sitting under the table. I would come back. Great service and food.

    Great food, fun place

    Beautiful spot on the water next to Mote Marine where dogs are very welcome on the deck. What a gorgeous sunset! Great service (thanks, Michael!), delicious food, and our pup got her bowl of water and treats before our drink order was taken. Awesome! Highly recommended for those weary travelers looking for a break and good food where their dog can come along.

    Loves the Chicken

    ! always enjoy myself here, I think my two humane parents do to. I usually have the chicken salad (with out the salad!) and it tates grrreat.
    Great atmosphere and they do LIKE us four legged customers.

    good beach food

    The Old Salty Dog on Siesta Key has good beach food - fish sandwiches, shrimp, etc plus their famous hot dog and more for reasonable prices on the Key. The best part is that my dog was welcomed at a roomy table outside where she had room to sniff around and lay down. They also brought her a large bowl of ice water and treats without my asking. I definitely will remember to go here with my puppy.
