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. We are open on Mondays from the last week in December thru April! We close every September from the Sunday AFTER Labor Day and reopen on the Thursday BEFORE Columbus Day Weekend.

We went for dinner and was so surprised by the inside considering that the out side on passing really would not have drawn us in. Quite and friendly. Friends recommended this restaurant and went with us..The food is excellent. They are pricey but worth it. If you enjoy desert the bread pudding is excellent. We will go back.

Their waitress suggestion of the signature Square Grouper Sandwich was just what we were looking for. A delicious sample of the local cuisine offering!

Stopped in on a whim for a late lunch, having found the name of the place interesting and the parking lot full. So glad we stopped! Friendly from the moment we walked in. We sat at the bar and receive full lunch service. Delicious seared tuna and grouper sliders. Fries were not greasy. The conch chowder was outstanding! Prices were... More

Great place for fresh seafood and some rather unique pub fare all at a reasonable price. May have to wait a few minutes and the parking lot is usually full

Cudjoe key does not have many options for food. This place was pretty good. The service was good. It's a bit pricey for the amount of food, but when there are not many choices on the island it is good.

I was impressed with. The Square Grouper. The waitress had a Great personality. The tapas were unique and very Good. The chicken lollipops, the meatballs, and the huge pretzel were really good. They have drink specials every day. The upstairs is a combination of bar top tables and sofa areas.

Our family, 8 adults, rented a house for a week on Cudjoe Key. The Square Grouper was only a few miles away. We went into Key West for several meals but toward the end of the trip we had dinner here. Wish we would have tried it sooner so we could have had more dinners here. The menu had so... More
