About Us

Our Story

You can trace the origins of this family-owned business to “SKOB home of the Bears”.

When SKOB owner, Jill Pedigo, moved down from Naperville, Illinois to Osprey, Florida, she brought her love of the Chicago Bears with her. As that first football season rolled around, Jill and her father, “Jack Daddy”, made the trek to a local sports bar to watch the Bears, but their game was on the worst TV in the place - with the sound off. It was during that game that Jack Daddy quipped “We should get our own bar so we can get a good spot.” and the rest, as they say, is history.

Just a few days later, Jill and her husband, Geno, were sitting at a nearby beach bar and it just happened to be for sale. By the end of football season, Jill had convinced her sister, Beth, and Beth’s husband, Keith to partner with her and Geno to purchase and actively manage the Siesta Key Oyster Bar.

Now, every Sunday during football season, the Siesta Key Oyster Bar transforms into a sports bar where the Bears are on the best TV in the place – with audible play-by-play.

Join our extended family for some award-winning food while you sip on a craft beer or an island-inspired cocktail and see for yourself why SKOB is the place to be on Siesta Key!
