My first night in Sarasota we checked out Siesta Beach and then headed off to dinner at Siesta Key Oyster Bar. I figured it was a popular spot if we were dining there and I was right. From what I gathered, it is a favorite because the food is great, the staff is friendly and it allows you to people watch (and we all know how entertaining that can be).

When I initially I found out we’d be eating there, I hoped they offered more than seafood considering I don’t eat seafood (the smell alone can drive me mad). Fear not, I did not go hungry that evening (nor did I go mad from the smell of seafood). I left with my belly full…and happy!

That evening I dined on…
