Seafood at it Best

The seafood platter is one of the best I have had in a very long time, all was cooked to perfection and the live music while setting outside made for a fantastic meal.

Reasonably priced drinks that are top notch. Great piña coladas and the potato skins were really a two thumbs up

Went on our last evening on South Beach. Happy hour was great for the raw bar and drinks. We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Almost everywhere on South Beach adds 18 or 19 percent gratuity, so you just have to expect it. Just make sure you check and don't double tip and honestly, the service is better than what... More

We love eating here. One of the few outdoor near the water places to eat in Miami. Layback, casual, Margueritaville kind of place. Good fish. Not on Saturday night as they have a live dj whose loud music will blast you out of your seat. Forget about a conversation at dinner!

I read the previous reviews with skepticism until my wife and I visited last night. The reviews were exactly as stated. A great place to sit and watch the marina in the back ground, but the food was expensive and marginal at best. From little wooden boat they sell Stone crab with prices ranging from 5 to 8 dollars per... More

I know the reviews are mixed but my wife and I really enjoyed Monty’s. We went simple with the mahi tacos but they were very well prepared with large chunks of flavorful fish. We didn’t know what to expect when we walked into the basically empty dining room until we went out to the huge back deck that was packed... More

First meal in Miami and was hoping this was not the norm. Food was average and expensive. Nothing unique or a must try. Not bad but not what I was hoping for on vacation.

On a recent trip to coconut grove we wandered over to Monty's for dinner. The stone crab was good and everything else was average. The best part of the experience is the location. If you are looking for a place on the water in the Grove Monty's may be your best bet. If you are not hungry, you can always... More

It was a favorite back in the 90's when we frequented Miami. The restaurant has changed (due to a hurricane as we were told) and the food is expensive and average. Can't recommend going again. We took a cab from the airport hotel where we were for a overnight stay before heading to St. Lucia and what a disappointment this... More

The marina location and sun or shade tables are a prime location to enjoy a good weather day. We were basically super hungry after a boat ride so we went for it. Had a miami vice drink which wasn't anything special. Also a mojito which was much better. The fish spread was relatively tasty, but the accompanying chips were very... More
