I'll start off with the fact I am not a face mask fanatic but really, in a small inside seating area with tables very close together the staff and...owner are running around without masks yelling over to various tables with no concern to the health situations we all face. Reviewed 1 week ago I love grouper so made sure to have it every day I was in Florida.
I had seen this restaurant featured on a TV show and also heard about it from some locals. As we walked in I noticed right away none of the employees, including the cooks, were wearing masks.
It was enough to make me just turn around and leave but I really had my heart set on eating here. The grouper was fried perfectly, nice and crispy with no oily or greasy texture.
Fried the same way and served on a fresh bun with lettuce and tomato. They had a dessert special of peanut butter pie which we tried and it was very good.
Served in an Oreo cookie crust it was creamy and delicious. The service was fine but nothing overly friendly or welcoming.
They have posted a sign on the door, that essentially says that your personal freedom is your choice to wear a mask or...not and God bless America with an image of the American flag. More Reviewed 2 weeks ago This place is like a little secret on 41.
Reviewed November 12, 2020, via mobile Amazing small restaurant. !we had the zucchini, blackened grouper and clam chowder.
Reviewed September 26, 2020, via mobile I was working today cleaning offices and had no time for lunch. I immediately thought Grover and Chips, family likes it, easy pick...up, always good.
However, it would be the most respectful and courteous thing to do at this pandemic time ! The only positive note was the key lime pie -excellent.

Reviewed January 26, 2020, Used to live in Naples many years ago and decided to revisit this place on a recent trip. This place is also hard to spot from Tamiami Trial.
Reviewed November 17, 2019, The grouper my father ordered was under-cooked, but the staff immediately replaced the order with a properly prepared serving. Reviewed April 27, 2019, via mobile With all the “white cloth” dinner places where you pay for the environment you are eating, this is not that place.
If... I lived closer Grouper Grille would be a weekly dinner for me. Reviewed February 27, 2019, Unfortunately we only found this restaurant at the end of our vacation in Naples.
The food was delicious, authentic and portions very generous. The menu offered multiple selections which made it a difficult choice.
Reviewed February 10, 2018, This place looks like it just changed hands recently. Traces of a Chinese or sushi takeout are visible.
Reviewed January 28, 2018, via mobile Wish I could experience this meal on a daily basis. I believe I found one of the best seafood places in Florida tonight.
Going alone to any restaurant can be lonely, but at this one in particular I felt a friendly atmosphere and very welcomed...by the servers and other guests. My meal of their house grouper came out impeccable and perfectly cooked with plenty of succulent juices.
Dining options: Dinner, Lunch, Reservations Description: Kelly's Fish House Dining Room has been a tradition since 1953 and is proud to be the oldest seafood restaurant in Naples.
This family-owned restaurant is directly beside the Gordon River Bridge, cozily nestled on the east bank, an easy drive from anywhere in town. The casual Old Florida interior with warm cypress walls, knotty pine ceiling and many local commercial fishing artifacts give you a nice down-home feeling.
The huge windows afford a great view of the Gordon River. This is the perfect place to be on a balmy evening, while enjoying the gentle breezes and watching the boats.
All fish, shrimp, and stone crab are fresh caught in Kelly's own boats and served in straightforward classic preparations. My wife and I have been going to Naples for 30 years and our first dinner out is always Kelly's, and we always get the Fried Grouper which is absolutely to die for.
Cocktails are great, the wait staff is awesome (we love Kay), and the dining room with seashell case tables and a beautiful view of Gordon River and the sunset make for a great evening. Kelly's wine list has some great choices at very attractive prices.
It is not less expensive than a lot of better restaurants and decidedly inferior food (and brusque service). The redeeming quality is that it is waterside, albeit, in a boat alley.

Ask Silver7246 about Kelly's Fish House Dining Room The positives, the staff were excellent: warm, friendly, attentive; and the hush puppies were great.
There are few things as Floridian as Key lime pie, but the search for the perfect grouper sandwich may be one of them. There’s nothing better than a day at the beach followed by a perfectly fried or blackened slice of heaven on a bun.
An excellent grouper sandwich is also a sign that everything else at the restaurant is probably tasty and fresh, too. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.
We're focusing on these ridiculous grouper sandwiches, but you can't go wrong with anything on the menu here. To learn more, visit the website for Fish Shack in Lighthouse Point.
To each own when it comes to the whole fried/blackened/grilled dilemma, but we do have to say the blackened grouper sandwiches at Big Ray's are legendary. If it weren't for these sandwiches, homemade onion rings could easily be the star of the show.

Obviously, the fish and chips is the most popular choice, but you can't go wrong adding a bun. To learn more, visit the website for Gulf Coast Grouper & Chips in Naples, Florida.

Grouper files are often great served grilled, baked or broiled with garlic, butter, olive oil, key lime juice, and a touch of parsley! You can serve snapper either whole, which you can bake or grill in the oven stuffed with slices of local oranges, limes and/or lemons, garlic and a sprig of cilantro, or in files.
For files, it is better to grill or sauté those after you have marinated them, and then serve them with rice pilaf and beautiful fresh vegetables on the side. If you catch Spanish mackerel, either roast them whole, fry them whole or grill them whole with Mediterranean inspired herbs, spices and sauces.
Most restaurants choose to serve this fish in files grilled, blackened or baked with mashed potatoes, rice, and/or vegetables on the side. If you catch dolphin fish, you can serve it in similar ways and don’t be afraid to marinade or put a spice rub on the flesh, because its flavor can handle the extra seasonings without ruining it.
However, if you like the taste of red snapper, grouper and/or dolphin fish, you will enjoy preparing and eating shook! The flesh of flounder, when cooked, is very white, tender, sweet, with small flakes, so it is best to season it simply and not overcook it.
Flounder tastes best either broiled or sautéed with salt, pepper, butter or olive oil and maybe one other spice or herb, and then serve it with rice, potatoes, and/or salad and vegetables. Mullet tends to be very oily fish, with firm flesh and great skin, which it is why it is a popular choice for smoking.
So, if you can smoke the mullet you catch, do it, and you can transform the finished product either into a spread like most locals do, serve on its own as an appetizer or light dinner, or put it on salads. Mullet can also be grilled and baked whole, seasoned with a marinade, rub or salt and pepper with aromatics stuffed it in the belly cavity.
If you catch this fish and decide to serve it at your table, it is best to grill, sauté, or broil the files using a simple marinade made with oil, citrus juices, or maybe white wine or balsamic vinegar. Whether you’re hoping to squeeze in a few rounds of golf during your visit or you’d like to relax by a private pool, you’ll find the perfect home to fit your needs.
