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.

My Wife and I say a short series on TV about a month ago. They had a segment about the Square Grouper. Glad I say it, because from the outside you might not stop. If not for the fact that the parking lot is packed from 5pm on, most people would drive right by. DON'T MAKE THAT MISTAKE. portions were... More

We went to the Square Grouper last week! We went upstairs for a cocktail while we waited for our table. The service was great! I love the look of the new space! There is a large room in the rear for bigger groups, and the space seems more like upscale urban atmosphere. We had a few of their special cocktails,... More

We were in the Keys for a few days just to get away. The Square Grouper was recommended by the hotel. We went and had to wait for a table - on a weeknight in off-season. Good sign! The food was amazing! The presentation 5 star. I had the Shrimp Cakes with aioli. It was perfect. I ordered the appetizer... More

What an unassuming place from the road! We rented a house on Ramrod and almost every review in the guest book said to check out this restaurant. Everyone loved their meals. We did not have reservations and did have a bit of a wait being that it was a Friday night and a party of 6. It was worth the... More

This is an absolute jewel in a place with limited offerings. There are so few negatives, parking and the fact that it cannot be open 24/7. The food is so perfect, it is hard to find fault with anything. The owner goes above and beyond to ensure quality.. I have bonded with a few of the servers very well, the... More

We were missing the food we had in Spain, so for a Florida Key's take on Tapas try their new upstairs tapas bar; good food and good drinks in a friendly comfortable atmosphere.

This is an excellent restaurant. The food is pricey (you are in the Keys) but so worth it. I would recommend this as a MUST if you are looking for great food in the Keys. Will return.
