Excellent food and great service. We went for lunch last week. The outdoor dining on the intercoastal was quaint and fun, next to a bridge and near Merry Pier. Try the seafood risotto. The Cuban sandwich was quite good as well, and a generous portion. Lots of locals dining there, so it had an authentic feel. Reasonable prices as well.

This was a stop on our vacation, and I can't stop thinking about the place. The food was incredible and service was great. Our waiter had a great sense of humor, and even took the time to write down the type of wine I was drinking. We were a group of 6, and showed up with no reservation on New... More

My husband and I visit every year as his mom lives down here and one of our favorites is Sea Critters where we always have the grouper sandwich. The service was impeccable as usual but my husband and I both found it to be a little salty which was unusual. Not quite as good as we remembered. We were thinking... More

Ask to sit on the patio and enjoy the gorgeous view! Start there! Drinks! Appetizers! Lunch! Supper! This place is super casual and such fun! Watch the boats dock and relax, the chowders are tasty, the salads are fresh and crisp and the grouper (any way you have them prepare it) is truly yummy! Locals and tourists visit here on... More

I like the relaxed atmosphere of this restaurant, nice views of the bay, with boats, and egrets and pelicans 'waiting' for seafood from local fishermen. docking their boats. I usually have lunches there -- quality fish sandwiches and clam chowders, fast and friendly service, decent prices -- what else do you need? The restaurant is not 'in the center of... More

Loved the patio view, watching boats go by. We had very good service and the food was very tasty. We all had different things and enjoyed them. I would go back again.

We come here often and are known as 'the family that always orders Cuban sandwiches'. My teenage boys have been on a quest to find the 'best Cuban sandwich on the beach' and we keep coming back to Critters (its the best). Personally, I love the grouper sandwich, jambalaya, fish spread..shall I go on :) It is laid back, good... More

We were reprimanded like children because our party was 5 rather than the 4 we had reserved, but after being sorely tempted to leave, we did enjoy a very good meal with excellent service. Seafood and non-seafood dishes were well prepared and fresh. Great location.

Kicked back relaxed waterside dining. Very laid back casual atmosphere. We had what was an early dinner (for us) and although we thought we would have to wait, we got a table by the water right away. All of us, 2 adults and 2 teen boys, were very happy with our meals. Plenty of food and decent prices. Our waitress... More

Last year I wrote a review of this restaurant saying how pleased we were to find it still open on our return to the area after about 15 years. This time it has been a disappointment. We called in a few days into the holiday and asked if we could sit outside. The answer was a firm no, not even... More
