Will definitely be back

This was my second time visiting coconut grove, and my second trip to montys. I ended up having the same bartender both times, and he was a huge reason the experience was positive both times (the smaller bar near the entrance). Happy hour is a great deal and the raw bar is really fun. I almost... read more

It was great to go back to Monty's which has been a staple and great place for food and entertainment for over 3 decades. Food and service were great, as usual, and it still has a great, scenic location.

I went there several times, last one yesterday, we ordered a fisherman plate, which is a mix of fried seafood and french fries. Half the plate was fries, the rest some good fried stuff (shrimp, cod, conch). Another person ordered a Mahi Mahi sandwich which was good. The food is fine, the place is very well located, i would give... More

Monty's is a dockside, outdoor covered. The service is good but the food is average, so do not expect the best food, just enjoy the view.

Monty's has been around for over 40 years…for good reason. Monty's is a dockside, out door (covered) casual dining place. Their cracked conch hasn't changed for decade. It's out of this world. They put on a raw bar, bar…shrimp and stuff which is good too.

I have been a customer for years now. And it is one of those places that I want to go back on every trip. Great ribs, great oysters, great crab claws, awesome scenery. Monty's is without a doubt my place for ribs in Miami.

This place was expensive and the food had no flavor. Our waiter was not particularly friendly and the live band was embarrassing. I had heard plenty of good things about it, and decided to go. I wish that I hadn't.

Monty's Raw Bar is a great place to go with a group of people and get juiced up or unwound. It has energy with music and sports channels, an attentive staff and festive atmosphere. Sitting on the water in Coconut Grove, the restaurant always has a breeze. The food is fair. Lots of fried and raw selections that are generally... More

Indoor and outside seating. Service is good and food great. Right by Miami Beach Marina. Can be a little pricey so best to ask about the "MP" market price before ordering. Has a swimming pool and incredible sunsets when Monty's Raw Bar becomes Monty's Sunset.

This place is a great bar and can't beat the view but why can't they improve the food? I think they let the food slide because they can still do a good business due to the location. I'll still come back next time I'm in Miami, but the food is the lowlight of my trips.
