Eat at the waterfront

Good food and draft beer - enjoy it all by the water. Great tables by the water ; watch the fishermen and boaters.

Made reservations to sit on the beautiful covered deck. We were seated immediately at a waterfront table with views of the boats, docks, and the Pass-a-Grille Channel. Anastasia, our server, was there to take our drink orders and tell us about the specials. She continued to give us great service throughout our meal. We ordered the tomato basil crab bisque... More

We stopped for lunch with our dog because this place was listed as pet friendly. In over 6 years of traveling with our dog, lunch today was the WORST EXPERIENCE we have ever had dining with our dog. One of the waiters, (however not our waiter), was so obnoxious that every time he had to walk past our dog he... More

Heard how generous the lobster roll is here and couldn't wait to order it. I felt that we got the bottom of the bowl - scraped till the end. It was late so if there wasn't enough, we should have been told they were running out in stead of trying to serve all three of us with what should have... More

Dear Fran, Thank you for your review of Sea Critters Cafe. I'm sorry you were disappointed with the portion of your lobster roll. As you can see from the numerous pictures of this dish from other reviewers, it is an ample portion of lobster for the price. We strive to be consistent with our portion regardless of the time of...

You can be seated on the docks or over looking the water. As the sun sets, lights come on in the water and schools of fish can be seen. Beautiful. So, wonderful sea food, sights and service.

Food was great, and seafood was fresh. My son loved eating on the back porch that overlooked a marina and being able to see the fish swimming around (and feed them). We will definitely be back on the next vacation.

If a friend hadn't given us a gift certificate to this restaurant, we would never have returned. On our first visit I ordered the fish dinner. It was horrible. One very small piece of fish with way too much batter and exactly 8 french fries. Husband ordered lobster roll which was also horrible. Food is very overprice, to say the... More

Dear Sandy, I'm sorry about the experiences you described in your review. Unfortunately we were unable to make your visit a better one, because no staff member or management can remember any of those things occurring and made them right. In addition none of the items you had a problem with were comped off any bill or paid for with... More

We come here again and again because we can count on the food being great. I am hooked on the lobster roll, a nice serving of large chunks of lobster on a grilled bun, what's not to love!! The ever changing specials are driven by what fresh fish is secured for that day. It's rare you'd go wrong with any... More
