Really enjoyable

Recommended to us by Americans who holiday in the area every year. Really enjoyed it . I had salmon, rice and veg. Partner had grouper and the kids really enjoyed theirs. Sat on the deck and had a nice relaxed supper. Shuts early by European standards at 9pm. So arrive early!

As others have said, the host/hostess could be nicer. When we walked in we were simply asked, "Inside or out." This was our first time there and we honestly didn't even get both feet in the door before we were to answer that question. We went with "out" and I feel like that was the right decision. However, the seating... More

This was the second time we visited Sea Critters, with the first being 2 years ago. We enjoy dinning outside, so I'll give this place a + for offering service in their deck. We entered and the hostess, which previous reviews were correct about her attitude, said "Inside or outside" of course we chose outside. She tried to sit us... More

We've passed this place a hundred times coming and going to the beach. Honestly, the name has always been a turn off for me (makes me picture an infestation-yucky)! We had just planned a day at the beach but it turned rainy, and since we were parked close by, we decided to stop in for a bite to get out... More

We arrived right after a rain storm had blown up. We waited for several minutes before someone acknowledged us to say "be with you in a minute". After about 5 minutes someone else walked by us To tell us someone would be with us soon. After about a total of 15 minute wait the "hostess" walked up and says "inside... More

Last weekend we were greeted by the worst "hostess" we have ever seen. "Aubrey the angry." Would be the best description. We've been to the restaurant many times and have grown to expect good food in a relaxed atmosphere, but all of the tastes soured around the aggressive I don't care about you attitude that we were dished at the...

A great place to stop! Fabulous food & drinks. Friendly & attentive staff. Great view... Blackened grouper and margaritas are my favorite.

We loved this restaurant! You can either drive here by car or pull up to the dock in your boat. Eat inside or out. The food was delicious. In fact, we went back the next day to try more.

Sea Critters is a cozy restaurant located not far from the historic Pass-a-Grille district on the harbor side of Gulf Blvd, away from the beach. It has the feel of a family run restaurant with friendly service and entrees that have a home cooked appeal. Standard menu offerings such as crab cakes are very well prepared but I highly recommend... More

We returned to this restaurant while on holiday from the UK. Last year our dining experience was excellent, fresh well cooked seafood. This year the food was over cooked and dry, with the local competition in the area why would we return. We left disappointed. We will return next year and hope the situation has been resolved by then. When... More
