We love this restaurant for lunch at the bar. The bartender (Sam) is awesome and the food spectacular. Recommend the tuna and avocado eggrolls, the grouper sandwich and the fish tacos. We've had dinner there too and the fresh catch is always wonderful.

We arrived in Miami flying from Cleveland. We then had a 3 hr scenic drive to Key West. Though starving, we waited to eat until we arrived at Square Grouper due to many recommendations from our friends. WELL WORTH THE WAIT! The server approached us with a big smile and friendly attitude, food was extremely fast and drinks never ran... More

Sophisticated fare in family friendly atmosphere. Quality of seafood was Five star! Specialty drinks were outstanding, they grow their own herbs in front of the restaurant and use several in their drinks too. Best restaurant between Marathon and Key West!

Had looked for a place for lunch near water and left because it was just a bar with little food. Drove along the Keys and saw a jammed parking lot at Square Grouper. Restaurant was full but they asked if we would sit at a community table. Wow, was that fun. Met people from various states on vacation. Service was... More

I have never had a bad meal here. It is worth the high dollar price. Good fresh and prepared well, clean nice, one of the best restaurants in the Keys.

We met our friends at Square Grouper for lunch, looking forward to great food and company. I was in the middle of my work day, so I could not enjoy the great cocktails the make. My wife and friends did; ice cold beer, watermelon Margarita and rum punch. We then had appetizers, Buffalo Shrimp (Tasty), Seared Scallops (Juicy and Rich)... More

Well, this is our 6th time at the Square and again we were not disappointed. Our waiter Gaven was friendly, knowledgeable of the menu and was attentive to our needs, even though he was swamped with customers (day before Valentines Day). This time I had the Pasta(Fusilli) with grilled shrimp(great sauce and 10 LARGE shrimp, wife had Egg Plant Tower(again)... More

This is one place you can definitely order the specials and not be concerned if the fish isn't fresh....The chefs are very creative and menu is seasonal. Fills up starting as early as 5 and the wait times can be over an hour -- totally worth it!

We had an excellent dinner here--salad, pasta with seafood (terrific Key lime-butter sauce, subtle and complex), dessert--only downside was the ice cream dessert was $9, a little unreasonable! Pleasant indoor dining room, very good service.

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.
