About Us


Every Dog Has Its Day

The Old Salty Dog restaurants exemplifies what Southwest Florida has to offer – warm hospitality, quality and fresh products sourced locally and sustainably and old fashioned good times.  All of our establishments are certified dog friendly and offer inside and outside seating.  Full liquor bars in each offering up daily libations and classical cocktails.  We are family friendly environment and all of our kids meals are served on a collectable Old Salty Dog Frisbee!

We have been in operation at our Siesta Key location since 1986.  Nestled in Siesta Key village, this location is within walking distance of small locally owned shops and beach access.  Whether it be to cheer on your favorite sports team with our MLB & NFL packages or to escape the beach for a casual meal, the Siesta Key Dog is the place.

Our City Island (Longboat Key) location opened their doors in 1991 and quickly became a favorite of locals and visitors from all over the world.  Perched directly on the intercostals overlooking Sarasota Bay, guests enjoy waterfront dining with fresh gulf seafood, hand crafted cocktails and stunning views of Sarasota Bay, and if you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of dolphins or manatee cruising by.  Whether you choose to arrive by car or boat, we have plenty of seating for a nice meal for two or a group gathering.  Our City Island location is the perfect spot for your wedding rehearsal or family gathering!

The Old Salty Dog Venice opened their doors in early 2015 alongside MarineMax marina.  Guests here enjoy quality food and libations while overlooking the working marina and harbor.
