And thats the end of the first quarter! Well, as least as far as the 2008 NFL football season goes. Its hard to believe that one quarter of the season is already in the books. The good news is that you still have twelve more weeks to try some of Sarasotas best NFL game day spots.
This week were taking a look at The Old Salty Dog, in particular, the Siesta Key location. The restaurant is situated right at the north end of Ocean Boulevard in Siesta Village and has been marking the entrance to The Village for quite a while. They had a pretty extensive remodeling several years back and the place really has that great island feel to it now.
On Sundays, The Old Salty Dog features a $10 beer bucket special. Thats five ice cold bottles of beer for just $10. Your server or bartender can tell you which brands you can get. As far as food, they have a really have a unique setup. Each Sunday Perrys BBQ sets up their giant smoker in the parking lot. You can smell the ribs, pulled pork and chicken cooking blocks away. Perry cooks some amazing food. You can buy Perrys BBQ and eat it right at the restaurant while watching the games and have a cold beverage of your choosing. You can also carry out and take that great BBQ home or to the beach for a picnic. They also serve their regular full menu if you’re looking for something other than BBQ or want one of their famous “Salty Dogs”.
The Old Salty Dog is a meeting place for Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills fans, but they have all the games on. They do have TVs inside and out so you dont have to miss one minute of the great fall weather.
