A Keys Original

Our Story

Since 2003, we have aimed to provide a complete dining experience: refined ambiance, seamless service, and innovative cuisine. We hope our family’s dedication to each of our restaurants leaves you with an unforgettable experience.

Innovatively prepared fresh & local seafood…

Our concepts offer a complete dining experience from family hospitality to the highest standard of cleanliness and service.

Now with four unique restaurants throughout the Florida Keys, Joint Hospitality Group provides a memorable dining experience no matter the location.

How To

The Square Grouper opens at 5pm for dinner service, we are first come first serve & do not accept reservations. We open the doors promptly at 5pm and will begin to seat everyone in line directly outside of the doors, in order.

Remember, we cannot seat you until your entire party is present, nor take names for our waitlist until our restaurant is full. This helps us ensure more accurate quote times for our guests. 

Our third-floor restaurant & lounge, The Sunset Lounge (Adults Only, 21+), opens at 4:20 for Happy Hour and Dinner Service. Feel free to enjoy this space as a standalone experience or grab a drink and head back down to join the outside opening line for the first-floor restaurant. 

If planning on enjoying dinner on the first floor, keep in mind that the “To Be Seated” line can be quite long! Always plan on joining in the outside line prior to 4:50pm to ensure that you will be seated during our first rotation. 

The stairwell is not considered a waiting area for 5pm dinner service at The Square Grouper. To ensure your spot in the opening “To Be Seated” line, please take your spot in the outdoor line accordingly. 

We have these rules in place to ensure getting a table is as fair as possible, for all our guests. Thank you for understanding!
