Lovely restaurant with a great selection of food from local seafood to steak and other land items. Service was very good even though the restaurant was quite busy at the time. Go around 6pm to be seated right then or ( as I saw while eating) many people had to wait in a lounge area for a table. Only thing... More

Everything about this restaurant is great. The look, the service, the food. I had their fresh mozzarella app, fresher than fresh, delicious. Had shrimp cakes, scallop dinner, mushroom soup, fish dinner special. All of our meals were delicious. We shared one dessert and it too was fresh and great. We went twice. It is opened for lunch and dinner and... More

When you go into a well regarded restaurant, you can end up with good food or great food. Once in a great while, you are privileged to happen upon a place with inspired food, which is light years beyond good or great. There is nothing expected our derivative about the creative and unique dishes being offered st The Square Grouper.... More

My son in law recommended that we stop here to eat prior to heading home. We walked in and the place was nicely decorated and clean! We were seated and our server came up and introduced herself and wrote her name on our table. Morgan. Immediately she offered us something to drink and showed us the daily specials and provided...

Eating out in the Keys is tough - there's not many to choose from in some areas (we were staying on little torch), and a lot of not-so-great ones. The Square Grouper was absolutely fantastic. Best meal we had in the Keys for sure! Our fishing guide recommended it to us, and he was spot on!

Been here several times over the years and SG always delivers. If you steer your meal with your waiters advice you will leave very pleased. ALWAYS consider the specials and dessert (which are all home made). We had the yellow tail with the banana/mango sauce. Superb! Dan had the thai chili rice bowl with grouper. Excellent. And the chocolate cheesecake... More

Every local person we asked 'where should we eat in the Keys?' replied that we just had to try The Square Grouper. The atmosphere was pleasant, bed-type cushions to lean against and our waiter was decent. The food was average though. I had the coconut shrimp and barely tasted the coconut. I did get a lot of them though! At... More

I am a local customer and this is one of my favorite places to eat. I always get the Panko Yellowtail. They have many other dishes from the menu that are excellent. Too many to list on this website. I highly recommend this restaurant. Great atmosphere and great services.

We visited the restaurant by chance and found it to be a wonderful surprise. The wait staff was courteous and very accommodating to our every request. But the best surprise of all was the food. All 4 of us had a seafood dish and each one was delicious. My bay scallops were accompanied by a tasty version of acorn squash.... More

Square Grouper is a highly recommended stop on your drive along Overseas Highway. The seafood is very good, the servers are friendly, and prices are reasonable. There is a bar, too.
