A disappointment sorry to say. The eggrolls were nothing special...not as we had remembered. The calamari average...batter coating soggy, not adherent. The scallops were fine- vinegar/tarragon dressing completely over the top clumped together...altogether too astringent for fresh scallops. Lamb shank served cool to barely warm...took 15 minutes to reheat (shouldn't it take precedence over other dinners ? I waited once... More

We go to this restaurant at least twice every time we visit the Keys. Everything is top notch from the food to the decor and very clean which is sometimes hard to find in the Keys. The menu is very extensive from salads to fish and beyond. Be sure to try the meatloaf, it's the best ever.

As as 15 yr. local have tried it 2 times. Was not impressed the first time at all...just a tin building the only atmosphere I could see were the candles on the table. Very closed in with just a few windows. The food was just average. I always give a restaurant a second try, still not impressed...when I pay these... More

I have driven past this a million times and never stopped, because it's usually closed since the have strange hours. This time I was lucky enough to stop and boy am I glad I did. It was amazing! The decor is super cute and modern and the staff is very friendly. We came and were greeted promptly and sat almost... More

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.
