My husband raved about the grilled scallops! I had the Cuban sandwich, it was very good. Service was quite slow but the atmosphere was nice.

My husband and I have been to Sea Critters about 5 times...mainly for the freshly made happy hour Margaritas, which are superb. We also include dinner while there. The food is good not great. My favorite dish was the pasta lobster(20.00) until the last time when the recipe was changed. Almost sent it back. Last visit I had the ribs,... More

We love to eat at 'joints' that are literally on the water or have a water view & Sea Critters meets & beats all our requirements. Sit outside on the back porch, or better yet, sit outside on the docks where boats pull in from the inter-coastal, tie up, & people get off to eat. A great place where locals... More

We ate here twice during a nine day stay in pass a grille. Excellent staff, great food and good drinks . Too hot to eat on water but we did that last winter and it's a great view.

Awesome margaritas with fresh juice for $3 a pop during happy hour. Cool deck to sit at and good grouper sandwiches too. Nice waitresses and bartenders.

Please keep this under your wig or hat. You don't want all those tourist from you know where invading this small spot of gastronomical magnificence. First of all it's hard to find and you have to be looking for it. It's on a canal, almost under a bridge, with access for customers on boats. It's someplace where you might expect... More

Eating outside on the open air patio was a pleasant experience. The restaurant is cute with a rustic wood interior. Outside of the air conditioned dining room is a covered patio that sits right by the dock where boats come in and out as diners come in to eat at Sea Critters. The fried shrimp and fried scallops were delicious... More

The staff was very welcoming and the service was very friendly. They make great bread. My grouper was delicious and my wife loved her shrimp penne. The place is laid back and a great little place for beach and boating folks. We'll definitely return.

Always excellent, fresh food, friendly service and amazing atmosphere on the back porch or dock tables. Try the Chilean Sea Bass if it's in season and the red sangria is delicious. The key lime pie is amazing as well.
