We make it a point to visit The Square Grouper several times while we are in the Keys, and I have never had anything less than an excellent meal here.

There aren't too many places in the Keys like this one. Closest you can get to would be the Black Fin Bistro in Key West. I recommend you try their Tapas Bar upstairs. They have different tasty bites that end up being filling by the 4th order. The oysters were fresh (in June) and their drinks are great, too. They... More

Never ever a disappointment! Each item on the menu is fantastic! My favorite go to is the Asian marinated skirt steak for an entree and the edamame beans and eggs rolls for an app are out of this world- 2 thumbs up!

Great service and food! Need I say more? Oh, call in for a reservation, so you don't have to wait. They can text you when the table is ready. There is a tapas bar upstairs too.

This place was recommended to us by the guy who rented us kayaks on Geiger Key. I wish I could send him a thank you note. This was our best meal the entire week in all of the Keys, including the restaurant on Little Palm. Service is excellent and the food is all fresh and made in house. The key... More

The restaurant doesn't take reservations, but this was worth the wait! While waiting we went upstairs to the lounge, My New Joint! Great drinks and great food at both places!

Despite not taking reservations and having a 45 minute wait, my husband and I can not rave highly enough about this restaurant. For the wait, we went upstairs to the lounge and had a tuna sashimi grapefruit appetizer which was delicious and fresh, and a huge fresh-baked pretzel hanging off a hook with three dipping sauces which was yummy, but...

The Square Grouper has always been a great restaurant, but the recently completed upstairs is amazing. We live in Islamorada, but stop here every time we visit Key West. We had a couple of beers, the Empanadas, the Pork skewers and a puff pastry stuffed with ice cream and drizzled with caramel. We are still talking about how good it... More
