5 of us went there early on a Saturday evening because if not you have a long wait. Everything was fresh and tasty the scallops and grouper were cooked to perfection and the crushed almond batter was amazing. My wife's shrimp was a little over cooked but was still better than what we had at Dockside Daves. This was our... More

We enjoyed our food here. There was a wide variety and the fish seemed really fresh. It was family style dining so we saw with another family, but we enjoyed visiting with them. There is an ocean view as well. It is a bit expensive, but overall we enjoyed it.

Call ahead for reservation and request waterside seat. Check the internet for daily specials. For instance, a seafood boil is $27 of lots of seafood that could feed 2-4 folks. Fish is prepared well. Nothing fancy here, but fun.

Impromptu business lunch on a Monday and walked right in with no wait. VERY casual location. The deck was closed for repair, but view of canal was still nice. Good beer selection. We had the wrap special and the blacken grouper sandwich. (13.99) Both fish selections were amazing. I also had the house salad for an extra 0.99. Great service.... More

Overpriced for small portions. Food OK but small portions on large plate with no presentation. Went at noon and only one other table was taken. All the tables overlooking the bay had reserved cards on them, turned out they weren't reserved. You have to ask if you want one(????).

Had a very nice lunch with our friends. It is a quite nice little place. I love sitting outside watching the boats go by. Good food and it was priced right. Would recommend.

The seafood here is always fresh and the service is wonderful. The outdoor dining is sometimes loud depending upon the patrons at the bar, but the food is always delicious. The three in one salad and the lobster roll are to die for and worth a try.

The best thing about Florida is being able to sit outside in the winter and have a great meal. We loved both the seabass and the grouper. Harley was very attentive as a server. We will be back soon.

We come to St Pete/Pass-a-Grille often and have been to Sea Critters several times. I must say, this is one place that is always recommended to us, but I have never been impressed. Atmosphere is not great. May be going for a 'rustic' look, but just seems old and dirty to me. Food may be "OK", but the prices are... More
