Innovative fresh local seafood. House Smoked Fish Dip is phenomenal, a definite "must try"!! Our Conch Chowder and our Key Lime Pie are also something you should not miss. We also have a great Square Grouper Fish Sandwich, 16 oz Grilled Ribeye (Certified Angus Beef!), Salads and lots of small plates to share...Flash Fried Conch with ponzu and wasabi.

Wish I lived closer!!

Whenever I think of the Keys I'll remember my meals here. We ate here twice in a few days and loved everything. The fish was perfect and the key lime pie was amazing!

Our visit was limited to an appetizer and a drink in the waiting room. We were told about a fifteen minute wait and were directed to their room with couches and tables to wait for our table. An hour and ten minutes later, we were seated at an occupied table with one side being a padded bench seat that runs... More

Seldom do you stumble upon a restaurant where virtually every meal is a 9 or 10. The Sqare Grouper falls into this category and we were frequent visitors for our winter months in Cudjoe Key. I'm not sure where to start. They grow their own greens, the mixed greens topped with griiled or blackened scallops was simply amazing and is... More

I can not say enough about the food and service here at the grouper. It always is wonderful and our favorite place to go hands down. The snapper special is usually what we order. Each special is as good as the last. We love it.

This great restaurant was recommended to us by a lady who lives in Sugarloaf key. We had dinner there on a Wed night and it was packed. We were offered to wait on the back where there was a nice lounge waiting area and we could order drinks or even appetizers while waiting. Then they moved us to a table... More

From the outside this place doesn't look like much, but the decor inside is great and the food is amazing. You will pay a little more than the average meal nut trust me its worth it

It was St. Patrick's Day, and a wait of 45 minutes was not unreasonable, especially once the food arrived. Our party of three deliberately ordered three different appetizers and three different main courses so that if one wasn't great the other two would make up for it. Well we ran into an unexpected problem. They were all great and it... More

This is by far the best place in the keys to eat. The service is fast warm & friendly. The pretzel bread to start is warm & fresh.. The main course seafood stew was the best dish in the place. Dessert the peanut butter pie is to die for .. Yummy .. Very clean the price was very reasonable ..... More
