It doesn't look like much from the outside, but this place is great. Take a chance! It's very popular. We always try and get there at least once when we're in the area. We eat outside on the covered patio to watch the boat traffic and usually get the grouper sandwich or other fresh fish. They have professional, underwater lighting... More

Grouper bites were average but the fresh catch was perfect. The jerk seasoning on the yellowtail was perfect and the blackening on the giant piece of grilled grouper .... oh so good. Get the black beans and rice as a side and enjoy a perfect flavor combo. Will return to this little gem. Don't forget to buy some sea scrub... More

We saw this place on reviews and decided to give it a try. It is a very small place, but does have some seating outside, both under a patio and picnic tables on the pier. The menu is pretty big, and has some of their specialties on there. We went early, and luckily we did because it started to fill... More

I ordered the lobster roll with sweet potato fries, and it was delicious! Also the fresh brewed coffee was out of this world! Will definitely go back

I normally wouldn't eat in a place with "critters" in the name, but I am glad I did! Had the seafood boil which was incredible. Meg had the Risotto which was even better. Our waiter, Ken was hilarious, and really made it a lot of fun. Sitting on the water was great, but sit on the far dock, because some... More

After arriving in St. Pete Beach, awaiting for our room to be ready, we set out in search of lunch. We drove down towards Pass-a-Grill and stopped at Sea Critters. I had the fried grouper sandwich and my husband had the Angus cheeseburger. Both sandwiches, which came with fries, were fantastic. We had the key lime pie for dessert and... More

A bunch our group went on a fishing excursion. The guide had made arrangements with Sea Critters to cook the fish that was caught. Some was fried, blackened & jerked. It was wonderful. The staff was great and yummy sides.

We stumbled on this restaurant our second night in Pass-A-Grille and went back for supper every evening of our vacation. The food was wonderful and we tried something different every time. The grouper and sea bass were exceptional. The bartender was friendly and made you feel like one of the locals. We are looking forward to going back again.

Rustic on the water spot in Passa-A-Grille. Great lunch spot with the typical Florida fare. Good sandwiches, good seafood, and cold beer. Portions are large, well prepared and very good. Try the homemade onion rings, crispy and delicious. Service is good with a well trained wait staff. All-in-all a comfortable place in a rustic atmosphere with good food. Give them... More

Great lunch with a view. Old Florida restaurant with old florida feel. Sat on the dock at a umbrella covered picnic table. boats coming and going. Very good food. Great service - friendly southern hospitality. The manager stopped by and made conversation - Totally a great seafood casual restaurant.
