We make it a point to go there every time we are in St Pete Beach

True Maryland owners, great food, the best views of the Sunsets on the Gulf, casual, great crab cakes (I have family in Maryland -2nd best I've ever had, other than in Maryland/or homemade).
We enjoy the place, try it you'll like it. The staff is excellent, polite, no "attitudes" here.

        I am guessing that the OP is talking about the Brass Monkey in Pass-a-Grille. It is the only Maryland-style, sunset view restaurant that I can think of here.

        FWIW, our experience there has been good food with painfully slow service.

            the only "maryland style" anything that i know of is crab.

            this is a crazy thread, are we supposed to have ESP?

              Maybe we should try guessing where it's NOT LOL!. Not Crabby Bill's, not the Hurricane, not anything on Gulf blvd, as no view, not Woody's....I'm thinking debbed must be right, but I've never been to the Brass Monkey. Only other possibilities would be hotel restaurants, and most of those don't have water view. How about the place that revolves? Now that's gotta have the best view!

                I think I have heard of "Maryland style Fried Chicken" but is it anything special?

              2. re: ospreycove

                Sorry...I meant Maryland-style crab cakes, as mentioned in the OP. And the original poster has confirmed that the Brass Monkey is the restaurant in question.

        1. I was referring to the Brass Monkey when I said true Maryalnd owners, great food, best views of the Sunsets on the Gulf.
