Everything we had at the Square Grouper was wonderful - seared tuna & fried conch appetizers, coconut shrimp, scallops with acorn squash. The very best, however, was the friend conch. We would go back in a heartbeat, and order at least one fried conch appetizer per person - LOL!!

Square Grouper is a whimsical restaurant with outrageously delicious food. I've never had a mediocre meal there. I understand the owner stands by the kitchen door and checks out every meal before it's served and the quality shows...right down to decorative sprigs of rosemary or dill which are grown right outside the front door.

If there's one neat place you can always count on having a great meal, that is staff friendly and meet everyone you know... It's the Square Grouper! Why do we locals like going back? Because it's so darn delicious and the atmosphere is always bustling and great! I highly recommend you add this to your list of Key's best dining... More

When we lived in Marathon, The Grouper was a favorite for celebrations. Now that we live blocks away, we visit a couple of times a week! The food is dependably delicious with great nightly specials that cater to everyone. The staff is also always delightful. A true favorite of locals and tourists who know locals.

We are locals and enjoy dinning at the Grouper! The regular menu has a wonderful selection to choose from and outstanding nightly specials. There isn't much if antything my family and I haven't eaten and enjoyed greatly. This is my favorite restaurant and is where we choose to celebrate many special occasions.
