Great place to eat

Sea Critters was an enjoyable place to dine especially during the evening when you can relax and watch the water teeming with fish that are swimming over sunken lights. The menu offered a good variety, food was great, the portions very good, the prices reasonable and the service quick and accurate.

Enjoyed calamari, shrimp and grits, oysters, salad, burgers, rum drinks, iced tea. They had crayons and a coloring placemat with the kid's menu. Colorful deck, casual dining. Good stop for lunch on the docks with the kids on the backside of Pass-a-grille after a long trip from DC.

I was told to come to the Sea Critters Cafe for the lobster roll sandwich. Having had them out East, I thought I would give them a shot and the people there were really friendly and it seemed like a place that the locals came to. Glad I stopped and the lobster roll was delicious.

Visited: Wed evening @ 5:30 PM What a waste of money and even worse our "precious" time while visiting St Pete's. Service was unfriendly. Hugely apparent the waiter couldn't give a rat's @ss about us or our patronage. Told him it was our first visit - didn't welcome us - just said "oh yeah". No eye contact or smile or... More

Catch of the day is to die for!!!!! Pulled pork and chicken salad are great for people who don't like fish.

My daughter and I stopped here. We ate outside on the deck with a view of the water. We had the crab basil tomato soup. Also crunchy shrimp and the special of grouper bites coated in almonds Service was good. With lemonades the cost was 47$ Nice beach place. Not on the beach but on the water.

I have been waiting to go to Sea Critters ever since I heard of it several months prior to going on vacation in Pass-a-Grille and it did not disappoint! It is not a fancy place but that is part of the charm; my family and I had our meals on the dock. The food is reasonable and delicious; on the... More

The approach to this fabulous restaurant is very deceiving - the service, food and setting were absolutely fabulous. The menu was super and each dish was plentiful and very tasty indeed. Feeding the cat fish at dusk was an added bonus to the already enjoyable evening. Good value for money and a very friendly, welcoming place. Loved it so much... More
