You can say it all started because of the Chicago Bears. Jill Pedigo, Owner of SKOB, didn't lose her love for the Bears when she moved from Naperville, IL to Osprey, FL. "As football season began, we trekked to the local sports bar with my father, "Jack Daddy", to watch the Bears, but they were always on the worst TV with no sound," Jill says. "During a game, my father stated, ‘We should get our own bar so we can get a good spot.' The light bulb went off. Within days, Jill and her husband, Geno, were sitting at a nearby beach bar that was for sale.
"By the end of the season, we convinced my sister, Beth, Co-owner, and her husband, Keith, to partner, and actively manage SKOB", Jill stated. Every Sunday, during game day, the restaurant transforms into a sports bar with the Bears on the best TVs with audible play-by-play." We welcome you join our extended family, enjoy our award-winning food, try one of the craft beers on draft, or sip on an island specialty. Come see why SKOB is a true landmark on Siesta Key!
