Wow--what a cool place--party of 8 seated easily and room to move. Service was fast and food was good. Would recommend that you stop in and relax.

What a jewel of a resturaunt!!! So clean and welcoming and that's before even eating any of the great food! Getting into the parking off HWY 1 a little tricky but once in, the place is great. Had the seared Tuna app and China Mist ice tea to start and all was wonderful. Fish Tacos - awesome! Will be going... More

My first time upstairs at my new Joint was over the top. My Husband and I were very impressed. We have told all of our friends about it. We got a bunch of the share Items to taste and they were all excellent. The pretzel is a must try and the selection off beer is Amazing. The staff was great,... More

Great service, incredible food. No further commentary needed! And they have alcohol!!!! Why does Trip Advisor make it so hard to leave a review? Is this 100 characters yet??

There are not a whole lot of eating places close to Cudjoe Key. But what is there is really fantastic. Parking is a little tight since everyone is going there but be patient and spots do open up. Walk in, put in your reservation and then go back to the waiting lounge where the wait staff takes good care of... More

Such a great place to eat. I had the Thai jasmine rice with shrimp and scallops and grouper, it was so delicious, the sauce was out of this world. My husband had the pecan crusted grouper which was super tasty too. The fried conch was great too... The bread (raisin and pretzel) is super good too. We will be back.... More

We were visiting the Keys for a long weekend and a friend recommended square grouper. We went, the food was amazing and the service was incredible. Our waiter KC was very informative with the menu and the different options we could do. If you ever come to the keys, I would definitely recommend square grouper and ask for KC.

We ordered restaurant's special grouper sandwich, which runs $17. Still, the service is great, decor fun and the food delicious! Might be better for dinner than a casual lunch.

Recommended by an artist in Key West, we stopped by on our way to Islamorada and had a fantastic lunch! Service was great and so was the food!

I really loved my cantaloupe martini and Thai shrimp bowl. Everything my husband and I had to eat was delicious. My husband had the lamb shanks, and according to him they were cooked to perfection. I also really enjoyed the little touches such as our bread came in a little bait pail with at least four different types of bread.... More

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.
