Locals recommend for the margaritas and they do not disappoint. Boats pull up to dock to come eat. They have a great outside seating area. The food is good. I had the fish and chips. The portions are large so be Hungary.

Sea Critters is a local favorite. The margaritas are second to none. Friendly bartenders and servers. Great seafood. Sometimes when it's chilly they have their delicious beer cheese soup.

My husband and I LOVE this place! Always great service, menu choices are wonderful - fish is fresh caught. Atmosphere is not bad - depends on where you are seated and what you are looking for (outdoor seems more casual). Attention to detail is what makes everything great. The flavored butters, the fabulous desserts and again, the entrees are just... More

Great place close to the beach for drinks and dinner. They have a large drink menu with specialty drinks along with a good menu for food. Crab cakes were good. Go to the back and sit by the water.

Greet warmly & seated quickly. Very pleasant waitress. Very informed about menu, beverages and specials. They were quite busy but we felt attention was very good. Beverages were good. I question if the 16 Oz sangria was actually 16 ounces as advertised. To me this was just placed in a large wine glass. My husband got the combo platter. He... More

Excellent prawns and salad. The sauce really set off the deep fried prawns which were huge. All twelve of them. Others had excellent food. One of which has Coeliac and absolutely raved about her salad, which large as it was, she couldn't leave any.

We went based on the "half price" we saw during happy hour. Which this is true, what wasn't told is that you get that price when you are part of the saver program. So it was extremely high priced and the service was poor.

Thank Ethan T
SeaCritters, General Manager at Sea Critters Cafe, responded to this review

Dear Ethan, Our Happy Hour is in no way related to the Club Savor program in which we proudly take part. From 3pm-6pm everyday our house margaritas are half-price. We also offer $1 off domestic drafts, $2.00 off our house wines, and $2.50 on all of our well drinks. If you did choose to join the Club Savor program, you... More

Great food and the best margarita's in St Pete! We like to go when we're in St Pete because we can just walk there. Parking is tight, but worth it!

We wanted to eat out one night during our Christmas vacation to St. Petersburg. We looked on Facebook for a resturant that was more local and with a water view. Sea Critters sounded like just the place. After our day at the beach we headed to eat. What a mistake! Parking was a miserable experience. We even called to ask... More

Dear Cheryl, I am sorry you had such a difficult time finding a parking space and had to deal with so much traffic. Even though we have more private parking that anyone else in Pass-A-Grille, it does tend to fill up quickly. If I could solve the traffic problem here or anywhere else, I would be king. I assure you... More
