At Captain Curt’s the food is what we’d like to deem as “casual,” however we do offer higher end products such as Crab Legs, Premium Fresh Fish, and High Quality Raw Oysters.  Although some of the products may be considered upscale, they are presented in a casual, old Florida way! There is a food item for every budget and an indoor and outdoor dining experience to accompany it. Come visit us under our brand new Giant outdoor Sniki Tiki Bar!

Tiki Trading Co. Gift Shop - Siesta Key branded apparel and souvenirs, fashion island clothing lines and more...

As part of the goal of providing the wholescale experience to our patrons, our Gift Shop has evolved over the years along with the restaurant. Our staff all wear fun tee shirts from the shop, adorned with unique quirky designs rather than formal uniforms. Our privately labeled merchandise is unique to Captain Curt’s, many of the designs created by our own staff. It provided something to take home to remember the good times.

Additionally, we’ve expanded to offer local merchandise beyond just our offerings in privately labeled souvenirs. We offer items from local craft makers and artists.

Captain Curt’s is committed to the customer experience. More than just dining, more than just a bar. We strive to ensure that every customer enjoys and remembers the time they spent there more than just the product they’ve purchased. The memories and the experience are what set us apart.
