I have been on a quest to find a great waterfront seafood restaurant. What I always find are beautiful views; on the other hand overpriced and underwhelming meals. This place was no exception: drinks were blah, appetizer overcooked, and seafood dish lacking flavor.

We came and waited the extra time for a dock side seat even though we could have been seated immediately. It was well worth the wait. The dock was beautiful and the water was lit up so you could see the fish swimming around. The food was also pretty good. We got a pitcher of sangria for the table and... More

We ate here twice. Most memorable was the grouper, sauteed in key lime butter sauce. We really enjoyed the food and it was delivered quickly. However, overall I feel the staff is not that concerned about your dining experience. So go for the food, but dont expect a stellar dining experience.

We really enjoy Sea Critters and eat here whenever we are in the area. Their combination platter is huge. It is enough for us to split one and just add a second salad. The grouper on the platter was fried in a light batter and was very moist. Sea Critters has both indoor and outdoor seating. The restaurant is on... More

Read a lot of reviews about Sea Critters before our recent vacation to St. Pete Beach so we thought we would give it a shot. The reviews were spot on. Some of the best prepared and tasty seafood I've ever had. Small place on the waterfront but you can call ahead and make a reservation if you can't get there... More

This is a great laid back restaurant with a menu that should suit everybody. It backs onto the intercoastal waterway and when it gets dark hundreds of catfish appear to get fed bread by the customers. Another evening we ate there before sunset and then walked down the road opposite to the beach to watch the sun going down -... More

THE Best Conch Fritters on planet Earth. Period. Also loved the grouper Rueben and steak fries. Relax out on the intercostal and enjoy. btw.. the waiter from Russia provided the best service we've had in awhile. Thank you.

Located in Pass A Grill Florida, one of the most beautiful villages in Florida, this is a little place you'd just drive by....don't. Its quiet, good food and good service all on the bay and a local hangout. If you go for a day of fishing on the Miss Pass A Grill boat ( and you should), brig your catch... More

Stopped in for a margarita on a recommendation from a friend. Love this place! Friendly service and great views on on the deck. Specials were great and they have the best margarita in the neighborhood. Stop here for good food, great drinks and friendly service.
