At lunchtime the Daiquiri Deck is a popular option along with the Hub Baja Grill and many others.

At night Siesta Key Village really comes alive as the bars and restaurants outdo each other with drink specials and live entertainment. Whether it's for casual or fine dining there is something for everyone from the Lobster Pot to the Blase Cafe and Martini Bar and The Old Salty Dog!
The Siesta Key Village Association sponsors special events year round. The Annual Crystal Classic Master Sandscuplting Competition in November is one of the most popular events in the area. The Association works to bring residents and businesses together for the beautification and benefit of Siesta Key Village and all of Siesta Key.
