My husband and my brother in law went on a charter fishing trip and caught 3 sea trout and 2 mackerels. Sea critters was recommended to us. We had a great time chatting with the owner, Tom, he was a hoot! The restaurant cooked our fish 3 ways: deep fried, blackened, and almond crusted. Each one was excellent. They only... More

Sea Critters has unfortunately become just another very average, overpriced restaurant in Pass a Grille. I've been visiting this place yearly for many years. I believe they were even reviewed in the New York Times once and given a high rating. Skip the slow unfriendly service and overpriced menu and try the warf next door. Less of a tourist trap... More

We went to Sea Critters expecting great local fish and we're not disappointed. This seafood boil was outstanding, as my wife and I both had the boil. Each of the kids had the kids pizza, burger, and fish nuggets. All sizes were large and we left with extras. We also had the extraordinary key lime pie. The waiter (from Chicago)... More

We ate there 4 nights in a row during our 5 night stay in trade winds resort. It's a hidden gem in st. Pete's beach. Discovered it just driving around and exploring the area. Their sea food boil (been available but not on the menu for the last 20 years) is AMAZING!!!! My 12 year old son couldn't get enough... More

First visit...enjoyed sitting at outdoor bar, chatting with fellow residents as well as vacationers. Excellent Margaritas and delicious/generous artichoke-spinach dip...We enjoyed the ambience and the menu looks worth diving into on our next visit, when we arrive with hearty appetites. I'd say this is the best restaurant on Passe-A-Grille, where also you'll find the loveliest beach on St. Pete.

This is a very casual and busy place. We looked up their menu on line and decided to go, our first evening at the St. Pete beach and a short ride from the Don Cesar hotel where we were staying. It was a cold night so we could not sit outside, but had reservations, so we were seated promptly. I... More

We make a yearly trip to Pass aGrille when we visit family. We recently have discovered that Sea Critters will prepare fresh caught fish on local charters. We brought fresh sea trout filets caught that afternoon and had them prepared fried, almond crusted, blackened, and jerk. We were able to order 2 sides and the fish was prepared at a... More

This is our 5 year old's favorite. She likes it because of the color-on menu and that you can feed the catfish from the table if you sit outside next to the railing. We go here at least once a month and have never been disappointed. The lobster pasta is yummy as well as the burgers and salads, particularly the... More

We ate here twice on our vacation. Once for lunch then again for dinner. Lunch was great! Relaxed, not rushed and enjoyable! We shared their peel n eat shrimp which was delicious and shared a lunch wrap that was a special. Our waitress was helpful. Dinner on the other hand was not as enjoyable. It was our last night in...
