Recently visited the Square Grouper while staying on nearby Summerland Key and the restaurant was amazing! Great food, gorgeous decor and good service were all experienced by our large group of 12 diners. Everyone in my group thought their dinners were perfectly prepared and delicious, and we all wanted to come back for another visit before our vacation ended but... More

Just a great place , been many times. Great atmosphere, wonderful service, phenomenal food. Have never had anything that wasn't first rate. Get there early or be ready to wait. Pricey , but well worth it, and no worse than multiple other places that cannot hold a candle to the quality. Attention is paid to every detail. Only wish they... More

We stopped for lunch as we left Key West. Great food and good prices, a real gem and the tee shirts were hilarious.

We spent a long weekend on Cudjoe Key last weekend. My taste buds are still soaring from an awesome visit to The Square Grouper. The conch chowder surpassed my expectations. The pasta bowl was amazing: corkscrew pasta with fresh pink shrimp in a lime/ butter sauce that was delicate and not over powering. This was served with fresh asparagus. We... More

We went here for lunch last week during our spring break vacation. We went with friends who had been here many of times. Oh my, what an amazing lunch. My husband said it's the best piece of fish he probably has ever had in his life, the yellow-tail. I had soup and shrimp salad wrap. Amazing. We also had desserts.... More

This place is awesome, the good is amazing to say the least, the servers are kind, and the service is fast, I had the Yellowtail Snapper, which was delicious. This place is expensive, it's worth the price, but none the less it's still expensive.

Food is very good, get there early, or you will wait. Went as a family, and as a whole everything was wonderful. Some of the prices are a little high. I would go back :)

We shared a salad and the small plates options. It was good... we had the seared scallops and the flash fried conch... which was more deep fried looking than flashed. The key lime pie was the best. the wine selection was decent. Not a full bar, just wine and beer.

We live in Key West and this was our first trip to Square Grouper. It was worth the wait. Including the wait once we arrived. The service was terrific. We were a party of 10 and our waiter was knowledgeable and professional. The appetizers were all fantastic. Flash fried conch was a favorite and also the poutine (kind of like... More
