Old Salty Dog Siesta Key FL

The Old Salty Dog isn’t your average hot dog joint.

This open-air restaurant is located directly on the water, keeping a cool breeze flowing year-round. With a laid-back atmosphere and tons of friendly faces, you’ll want to put The Old Salty Dog on your ‘must try’ list.

It’s family and dog-friendly, and kid’s meals are all served on a frisbee.

The fan favorite here is – you guessed it – the ‘Salty Dog.’ This quarter-pound dog is dipped in the restaurant’s famous batter and deep fried to golden deliciousness.

(If you want to take your Salty Dog to the next level, you can try it ‘Fully Loaded’ with sauerkraut, bacon, grilled onions and mushrooms, and your choice of cheese.)

Sound familiar? You may have seen this dog on Travel Channel’s popular Man v. Food … who will win when you take on the Salty Dog?

But deep-fried sausages aren’t the only thing The Old Salty Dog is churning out.

The menu has some awesome appetizers, a raw bar, fresh catch seafood and burgers. A local would recommend you start your meal with the Conch Fritters,  hand dipped in savory batter and fried. They’re served with a side of sweet chili mango salsa that delivers that winning combination of salty and sweet.

When you finish indulging in the finer points of deep-fried goodness, The Old Salty Dog shop has plenty of shirts, hats and other souvenirs to help you remember super salty your trip.

If you’re hungry and you’re in Siesta Key, get ‘Fully Loaded’ at the locally adored Old Salty Dog.
