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. For more information, visit the website for Big Ray's Fish Camp in Tampa.
Check out Big Water Fish Market's website to learn more. 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. It's a large part of why this tiny restaurant has made a big splash for 35 years.
Fried grouper might be the classic choice, but do yourself a favor and try the Cajun grilled version, too. It can be a challenge to dine out when you have kids, but Peg Leg's is super family friendly, with lots to see and do while you wait.
To learn more, visit the website for Peg Leg Pete's in Pensacola Beach. The fresh, flaky grouper here is only matched by the view of Sarasota Bay.
Check out the website for Dry Dock Waterfront Grill to learn more. If you're in the area, and you're searching for a laid-back spot with an incredible view and the bestgroupersandwich in town, this is the place to go.
The place may be small and unassuming compared to other nearby options, but don't pass it by, because this is the best grouper around. For more information, visit the Facebook page for The Boardwalk Grill in Madeira Beach.

Does this restaurant serve Tuscan food? YesNoUnsure Since its “official” opening on Super Bowl Sunday, January 26, 2003, The Square Grouper Wiki Bar in Jupiter has grown to become one of the most popular watering holes in the United States.
It is the home of several music videos, including Alan Jackson's hit “It's Five O'clock Somewhere” with Jimmy Buffett. The Square Grouper also hosts numerous fundraisers each year, benefiting many local non-profit and charitable organizations.
A little piece of paradise, with beautiful water views of the Jupiter Inlet and its famous lighthouse, this local landmark boasts the 19-slip Castaways… Reviewed March 12, 2021 via mobile We went at the perfect time (almost 2) and were able to get a table right away, although there were only a few open.
Reviewed February 28, 2021 via mobile Loved the atmosphere by the water. Reviewed February 21, 2021 Great relaxing view, but the birds have taken over the place.
Reviewed February 15, 2021 via mobile Great menu: fish, burgers, salads, appetizers. Waterfront tables as well as indoor seating, lots of bar space too.
Reviewed February 9, 2021 via mobile Nice view, good drinks and price. Live music at times but found this bar very simple.
I like a bit more upscale places but worked fine for a view and a drink. Reviewed February 9, 2021 via mobile Located right on the Jupiter Inlet and next to some fishing boat docks, the scenery is very nice.
Reviewed January 31, 2021 via mobile As a west coaster, this place was not my expectation of a wiki bar. Location is absolutely beautiful right on the water, watching the boats and lighthouse.
The drinks were average at best, nothing special like the wiki bars I am used to. Reviewed January 23, 2021 This is such a nice place to get together with friends, or just go and mingle.
Reviewed January 22, 2021 via mobile We were burning some time before a flight and was recommended by a local to come here. Reviewed January 19, 2021 via mobile Came for drinks and had a nice seat at a table on the waterfront.
Surrounded by water on three sides, Florida has no shortage of fresh fish options. There are hundreds of great seafood restaurants in Orlando and surrounding cities that feature grouper on their menus.
There also are dozens of different ways to prepare grouper, and more side dishes to accompany it than you have digits on which to count. Whether you visit Orlando, Miami, Fort Lauderdale, or somewhere else, the food is reason enough to head to grouper country.
The restaurant offers all the typical preparations (from char-grilled to deep-fried), but my personal favorite is the grouper Reuben. Grilled on fresh marbled rye, smothered in Swiss cheese, and topped with sauerkraut and A Thousand Island dressing, grouper never has tasted as good as it does on this sandwich.
Viewfinder Tip: To make sure your grouper is local, ask your server where the fish is from before ordering. Here, you can arrive by boat or car, enjoy live music seven days a week, watch dolphins frolic, and see pelicans at play.
Of course the star of the show is the Shook Inn’s famous grouper sandwich, dipped and coated in a beer batter, and deep-fried to a golden perfection. This grill’s grouper sandwich is pan sautéed, topped with house-made onion rings and zesty key lime tartar sauce, then served with fries and slaw.
Park’s of Dania Beach is exactly what you expect from a hole in the wall local haunt. Peg Leg Pete’s is located on Fort Pickens Road in front of the Lafitte Cove Marina.
The standard grouper sandwich comes grilled or fried, and topped with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and tartar sauce. Located on A1A, the Market specializes in fresh local whole fish, cut to order.
