We loved everything about this restaurant! From the swank upstairs lounge to the first floor restaurant, it’s all very carefully planned for the guests enjoyment. The grouper and snapper were delicious. Every plate that came from the kitchen was beautifully presented. So fresh and wonderful!...More

Recommended by the captain of our snorkeling excursion. Well worth the recommendation! My husband had a grouper sandwich and loved it. Our server was very sweet. The best part of the meal was the "award winning key lime pie" We had a few key lime...More

The best thing I had was the tuna melt. However I don’t think my personal food choices does this place justice. All of my family had different stuff and loved it.

We were down in the Keys for Thanksgiving and this was the first place we ate. We split the Seared Scallop pasta with key lime butter sauce. It was amazing and the staff was also great! On our next trip down this will be one...More

The Square Grouper has been our Go To Restaurant for many years. Over the years, we’ve managed to try nearly everything on the menu. Some of the favorites have been the Encrusted Grouper with the Caribbean Pineapple Relish, the Key Lime Pasta and The Seafood...More

We visit the Keys at least once a year, and this place is a must. It's absolutely one of my favorite "Joints" in the country! Worth the drive from anywhere!

Have enjoyed Square Grouper as my favorite local spot in the keys for years of vacations to KW. Great atmosphere, some of the best prepared local catches around.

Totally! We took our 6 and 7 year olds. You can write on the tablecloths (paper over linen) and there are crayons on the tables. There are also kids menus. :)

As I understand it, the term is 'slang' for a bale of marijuana that drug smugglers would drop into the ocean current from a plane to be carried to the Keys and be picked up there. I guess it makes sense. Anyway, that's what... More

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.
