Pass-a-Grille Florida Places to Visit – My Guide to PAG – Part 2

Published on 04/03/21: Pass-a-Grille Florida (2 of 2): For a brief history of this cozy beach town & name, scroll down. First, here’s a few places to consider while visiting PAG!


The Dewey Beach Bar and Grill, plus Rooftop Bar. Located in the Berkeley Beach Club @ 109 8th Ave. We love the modern coastal vibe! Their trendy rooftop bar provides a backdrop of gulf views to pair w/ fresh seafood (raw oysters & more). Addl details in 2 weeks, plus *$150* of gift cards!

Paradise Sweets, 709 Gulf Way. This is THE community spot for ice cream and sweets! Colt’s favorite. Paradise Sweets

Brass Monkey, 709 Gulf Way. Gulf views, large drink/food menu & great place to watch the 🏈 game!

Paradise Grille, 900 Gulf Way. Very casual BEACHSIDE ambiance for food & drinks (mango margaritas!). Often have live music. Our family often visits for a simple beach breakfast, picnic table style.

Hurricane Seafood Restaurant, 102 9th Ave: A staple since 1977, ie Grouper sandwiches & Clam Chowder. Hurricane Seafood Restaurant
Sea Critters Café, 2007 Pass a Grille Way. On the IntraCoastal side w/ dockage. Colt & I visited last weekend for live music!

Don CeSar Hotel – built in 1928, the backdrop for many photos of SPB/PAG.

Beach Suites at the Berkeley Beach Club! More info to come in 2 weeks for our biweekly drawing!


Indians fished and hunted around PAG for 10K years. Ferry boats began bringing visitors to PAG from Tampa in 1857, thus the claims of PAG being “oldest resort on Central Florida’s West Coast”. The 1st homesteader officially arrived in 1886, 1st hotel opened in 1901 (Bonhomie). Supposedly the “Pass-a-Grille” name comes from the French phrase Passe Aux Grilleurs (the passageway of the grillers) in honor of the fisherman who camped and first settled in PAG.

Your PAG favorites?
