Traveling by water?...Traveling by car?...If you are on Pass a Grille and are hungry...Sea Critters is a great place

Sea Critters offers a great balance of causal food such as burgers, apps etc and can step it up to full seafood dinners. The food quality is very good. the wait staff is fast and friendly. They offer a full bar for those who wish to have a cocktail. In my experience there ( past 10 years, alsmost... read more

It has been over 5 years since we were in St. Pete's so we were enjoying a visit to the area with friends who have never been. We enjoyed several restaurants in the Pass-A-Grill in the past so took a drive there one evening. A taxi could probably be had from any "strip" hotel. We had the impression that Pass-A-Grill...

My daughter and I stopped here for a late lunch after googling it on Trip Advisor! Well worth stopping and I see why they have great reviews! I had the crab cake and tomato basil soup with lump crabmeat (felt like a crabby day!). We sat out on the deck next to a window and enjoyed the views (even in... More

Loved the boardwalk setting on the water for lunch; though there was plastic over the openings and would be nice if just open in my opinion. They had a Grouper Reuben on the menu. I was a little hesitant to try it thinking grouper and sauerkraut didn't sound quite right. The waitress encouraged me to try it and it was... More

My husband and I along with our 9 month old ventured out to Sea Critters after reading reviews on Trip Advisor ... It did not disappoint. We were pleasantly surprised to see the back of the restaurant opened to the harbor. We were seated out back along the dock. It was a busy night and service was a little slow... More

This was our 2nd time at Sea Critters. Start at happy hour from 4-6pm and move into dinner. I had the almond crusted grouper (shared with my wife) with side salad. Outstanding. We finished the meal with a slice of caramel cheese cake.

We enjoyed a tasty grouper sandwich sitting outside right on the dock. The margarita was good but the best was the key lime pie!! Best I had in Florida during a 6 week visit! Definitely will return to Sea Critters next year!

Beautiful location right on the water but I find it is not real clean. Food so so. Inside atmosphere is very drab.

Loved this small cafe on the water! Ate there twice this visit. Casual with picnic tables and all! Food was great from scallops, jambalaya, calamari and crab cakes. Food fresh and service great! Emily was a jewel!
