Stopped here with my 11 year old for lunch on route to Key West. It was busy and full by 12.30 but we were happy to wait for 20 mins (although it only took 10) to seat us. There is no outside area but there is a fantastic fish tank and brown paper tablecloths with crayons so my daughter and... More

This place gave us a fabulous meal on Valentines Day, as well as a nice happy hour with specialty drinks up top while we waited for our table. You can also have tappas up at their Second Joint where music starts at 7:00, which we then went back up for. Or, eat at the other bar downstairs. We will be... More

This is a great place for a gourmet meal with friendly service in a comfortable space. The specialty drinks were fun, try the Key Lime martini. The seared scallops on polenta cake was excellent, as was the almond encrusted grouper. Fresh bread and an appealing room really rounded out the evening.

Four of us went to the Square Grouper for a late lunch. We arrived a little after 2 P.M. and had to wait about 10-15 minutes to be seated. Once seated, we had great service. Two of us ordered the Square Grouper Sandwich, one ordered fish tacos and one ordered coconut shrimp from the appetizer menu. Everyone was very pleased... More

Wow, wow, wow....just had the best lunch ever here at Square Grouper! You must try the grouper sandwich. My husband and I both ordered it and we can't say enough about how delicious it is. We waited about 10 min. to be seated (they don't take reservations but believe me its worth the wait). Service was friendly and prompt. We... More

This was a recommended place and thank god it was. I would have never stopped here had it not been recommended. The food was unbelieveable. We were a large group and every appetizer and meal was superb. This is a great place to eat. Service was also very very good.

Description
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. We are open on Mondays from the last week in December thru April! We close every September from the Sunday AFTER Labor Day and reopen on the Thursday BEFORE Columbus Day Weekend.
