Great location to go with friends!

The outside tables with the grass umbrellas right on the water is a super way to relax, watch the boats and the sunset. A breeze and blow through making it chilly if you are not prepared for the weather at times. The food was flavorful and the drinks great. The spicy shrimp we had was really... read more

This used to be a decent place. It is the shame because this is such a beautiful location. Fish tasted like wood. Service was very inattentive. Plus they tack on the tip! Would never return.

ALARMING:: a mandatory service charge of 18% is written in tiny tiny print on the menus. After charging you 18%, the bill leaves a blank space to tip even more.....this is misleading and unfair to customers.

This restaurant automatically adds 18% service charge (tip) to the tab. This practice reflects itself in the attitude of the servers who appear to have little or no interest in providing anything resembling speedy service. Location is great but the food is average.

Great location, that's it The food was very expensive and really bad, the rice was cold with a huge blob of black beans on top The soup was tasty but with a plastic spoon reminded me of a high school cafeteria The service didn't impressed me at all Don't waste your money

We really had some high hopes for this place, right on the water. The fish dip was good, beer cold and that was the highlight. Soup was below average, shrimp and fish was frozen, definitely not fresh. Very slow service. Next time we will try something else. Take a look at kid burger (hockey puck) compared to the bun, kid...

Great food. Got the super nachos which are giant and fully loaded. Also got medium crab claws. Came out wobbling like a duck from eating too much. Nice view of the bay.

As a Florida native, I visited Monty's often whilst growing up and just went there last week with some family. It has a great atmosphere to this very day, so I would def give it a 5/5 rating for that. However, depending who your server is, you may have a good or okay dining experience. When I was there last... More

If you like Stone Crabs, Monty's is a good choice. My son had the stone crabs in a mustard sauce and I had a lobster shrimp salad. Both were good choices. The ambiance was young and energetic, the service was good and location was next to the bay. The pricing was somewhat expensive, but overall we both recommend this place.

I can recommend this location. You won't be disappointed. Lobster, Crabs, Salads and Sandwiches were remarkably fresh and well prepared! Great value for money and quick and friendly service.
