We stopped off here for some lunch - so glad we did, it was delicious! The portion sizes were a bit on the large side, as it was only lunch, we ordered a sandwich and a couple of starters. This was more than enough and...More

With yearly menu changes the Square Grouper continues to get better and better. The soups we have had there have been sensational. The sesame seared tuna is the freshest and tastiest. The Peanut butter cookies are sensational with my home roasted coffee. The Bartenders servers...More

Awesome, consistently great. The grouper sandwich and burrata salad great pair. Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice with vodka topped it off.

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

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.
