Great food. Great atmosphere. Lots of fun. Right on the water. Good music. No complaints at all. Was easy to get into on a Friday night.

I have been going to this place for years as we like the view and sometimes music but never thought much of the food. We had thought the food could get no worse but i was wrong. I know it changed ownership a while back and in my innocence thought the food and service would get better, sadly i was... More

My family has been coming to Monty's for decades. It's is a coconut Grove classic. You get to enjoy live music and good seafood on the water. Happy hour prices M-F afternoons. Relaxed outdoor setting. Thanks Kyle for a wonderful service.

I have been coming here since the early 80's, nothing has changed much but the prices! rum runners and tropical drinks are still very good. I would stick to the Bahamian specialties and the raw bar items as the fried items are not the best option. The fries seem prefrozen or prepared while still frozen. I have been saying this... More

Loud music, tasteless food, camping tables seats; everything was at a low level of service... Avoid if you can!

So my family and I went to Monty's for the first time to celebrate my birthday. I was not impressed with some things. First, my husband and I tried ordering virgin Pina colada. The waitress stated that none of their drinks is virgin. What a surprise !! That was a first for us. We have never been to a restaurant... More

You don't come to Monty's to have a gourmet meal. This is a great place to hangout with friends, enjoy some drinks and grab a simple bite to eat. The location can't be beat, lovely scenery, right next to the ocean. The ambience is lively with live music and many positive people having fun. It's a little pricey for why... More
