The Tampa Bay Area Restaurants

The Old Salty Dog

Updated 04/24/2014

Fodor's Review

A menu of steamer and raw-bar options has been added to the much-enjoyed old favorites, including quarter-pound hot dogs, fish-and-chips, wings, and burgers. With views of New Pass between Longboat and Lido Keys, this is a popular stop for locals and visitors en route from Mote Aquarium and the adjoining bayfront park. Open-air dining area is comfortable even in summer, thanks to a pleasant breeze. Its bar is shaped from the hull of an old boat. There's another branch

on Siesta Key (5023 Ocean Blvd., Tel. 941/349–0158).

Fried food was greasy. Perhaps, the temerature of the grease wasn't hot enough. Otherwise, the rest of the fare is just average or mediocore. On the plus side it has a great view.
