Lance’s sister Brandi & brother-in-law Jeremy are visiting from McCall, Idaho for the week. We haven’t seen them for almost three years, so we are pretty excited to have them in town!
It’s still snowing out in Idaho, so they wanted to head to the beach to enjoy the warm Florida weather and get their Vitamin D. We spent the afternoon at Pass-A-Grille, which was packed with spring breakers. It was the perfect weather for a beach day – sunny with a breeze.
We had lunch down the street at The Wharf, a beachy shack overlooking the Pass-A-Grille Marina. It was pretty crowded, so we couldn’t get seating outdoors, but we got a window booth overlooking the water.
We were going to cool off with some beer, but they were out of most of the local ones on the menu, so we settled for just waters.
Since we were having dinner with my parents later that evening, we didn’t want to fill up too much, so we split a bunch of appetizers. We started off with a dozen raw oysters. They were some of the largest I’ve seen!
We also enjoyed the conch fritters and blacked buffalo shrimp, although it only came with 8 shrimp, so we devoured them quickly (it was an appetizer, so we shouldn’t have expected more).
Since we were craving more shrimp, we shared the pound of peel-and-eat shrimp seasoned with Old Bay spice. Jeremy had a PoBoy sandwich – they brought it out with fried grouper instead of blackened like he had ordered, but it still looked good.
Overall, a nice place to relax and enjoy some casual seafood at the beach.
The Wharf is located at 2001 Pass a Grille Way, St Pete Beach, FL 33706 and is open 11am – 11pm every day.
