Odd o be enjoying Maryland crabcakes in Florida but definitely tasty! The owners come from Maryland so their crabcakes are definitely Maryland style! No filler - all lump crab meat! The view of the Gulf is incredible there! Go at dinner and enjoy the sunset while you eat!

Try the Monkey Balls! These are crab meat balls with a delicate texture, full flavor, and a great sauce. We then got the "Grouper Reuben" which was such a good flavor and large sandwich!

Title summarizes eat - wouldn't really go back to eat for dinner, but a drink and appetizers on the patio would be just fine. Probably 4 stars for that. 2 if you were going for the food.

In the world of St. Pete Beach one has to usually mute their expectations simply because everything is 'beachy'!! The Brass Monkey stands near the top however. Stopped in for some beverages and a snack! Besides being adorned with Baltimore sports teams(a big turn off at first for a Virginia/DC sports fan), it is an inviting and friendly place. We... More

The only thing that the Brass Monkey has going it for it is location and a nice collection of sports memorabilia. My partners grouper and salad was an embarrassment. The roast beef sandwich was barely passable, the white bread seemed stale. They did take the grouper off the bill. The chef if you want to call him that didnt even... More

Well, you certainly did have a bad day, didn't you? While we work hard to try to satisfy every customer, and will occasionally take the price of an item off the bill, it seems that even that did not appease you. We served over 150 pieces of Grouper that day, from a fresh shipment, and you were the ONLY one... More

To sit outside and watch the waves of the gulf and have a delicious lunch, this is the place. We tried the grouper ruben and the crab cake ruben sandwich and it was one of the most enjoyable meals that I can remember. Definitely a must when your in the area.

We stopped in our first day in the area for lunch. The outdoor area was not available, chilly weather perhaps? Basic no frills menu. Fried basket lunches, wraps, sandwiches. After looking at the menu we considered just having a beer and leaving. Place looked beat up and worn down. We did end up ordering wraps we were just so hungry.... More

We were in Passe-A-Grille for the weekend, weather was not the greatest, so we went upstairs for some beer and wings, it was great so we decided to go back for dinner. It was fantastic, excellent NY strip and the biggest Shrimp I have seen in years! Service was great, loved this place. We will be back!
