Sea Critters Cafe is situated right on the water and immediately calls to mind an island vibe. With indoor and outdoor dining, along with a boat dock, the ambience here allows one to step away from the everday and relax in a casual, fun setting. Frequent visitors to Sea Critters include an abundance of catfish which gather by the deck and people watch as the people watch them.
