smith and associates

The Seahorse Restaurant is one of the most celebrated breakfast spots on historic Pass-A-Grille Beach. In late 2020 the owners announced an indefinite closure. Never fear, omelette lovers, the Seahorse officially reopened January 11.

The Seahorse Restaurant, established in 1938, was one of the original Drive-In restaurants in town. It has remained a significant part of Pass-A-Grille since its inception, attracting tourist and local folks alike to it’s open air feeling and casual atmosphere. Family-owned and operated for the last 40 years, The Seahorse is an ideal stop when visiting this charming beach town.

A beloved restaurant for more than 80 years 

Need some convincing to visit? Here’s a 5-start review from Kasey C.:

“All the comfort food of a local diner that’s as historical as the area.  It’s a destination for our family on a lazy Saturday morning, and we schedule in a walk on the beach before breakfast.

Yup, I’m a shrimp and grits girl.  Seahorse serves as a main meal or as a side.  Cheese grits and grilled shrimp with a bit of bacon and spices . Not the traditional dish of sausage, onions and peppers.  That’s too much for a morning breakfast.  Seahorse does it just right for a morning or lunch meal.”
