Shaner’s Land & Sea Market: Pass A Grille’s Hidden Gem

We love the Burg, but we also love a beach escape every now and again. When we do decide to lather on the sunscreen and hit the road for a quick daycation there’s one must-visit spot before we perform the sting ray shuffle in the Gulf: Shaner’s Land and Sea Market (2000 Pass A Grille Way).

Family-owned and operated

This locally owned business, in our humble opinion, serves the finest grouper sandwich in the area. Their stuffed peppers, pulled pork and burgers are palatable delights in the eyes of frequent visitors. Shaner’s also happens to be the premier spot to grab cold beer, wine, fruit and snacks before you set up shop on the beach.

Exceptional food for good prices

Their prices are also something to savor. Just $3.99 for a pulled pork sandwich, $2.99 for an egg and cheese sandwich, $4.99 for a scallop kabob and $7.99 for a blackened mahi sandwich. Shaner’s indelible signage and baby blue paint job create an alluring and nostalgic aura around it.

The family-owned and operated business treats every customer with the kind of care and kindness typically reserved for regulars. We can’t recommend enough their little neck clams, blackened grouper and swordfish. The spot specializing in to-go orders has the magic touch that continues to bring customers back.

It’s worth the toll to the beach

You can learn more about the restaurant’s menu on their website. We suggest you forego whatever weekend lunch plans you have an make a point to experience this spot for yourself. It represents everything a local business should be.
