"Where Coconut Grove Meets the Bay"
Opened in 1969 Monty's Raw Bar has grown through the years to become one of Miami's most well known and respected restaurants. Our iconic location has served as the backdrop for TV series, music videos, and movies including Miami Vice, Burn Notice, and Marley & Me.
The waterfront tiki hut setting allows you to forget about life for a while as you soak up the bay air and enjoy a great meal with friends and family. Our indoor space is perfect for both air-conditioned dining & events, our docks allow you to arrive by boat, host a private event, fishing tournament, or waterfront wedding ceremony.
Being a Key West native Monty wanted to bring a taste of the Key's to Coconut Grove. Two years after graduating from the University of Florida he opened "Monty's Conch", a small breakfast nook and gas station. In time Monty opened restaurants in Boca Raton, Orlando, Atlanta and Key West. He sold his rights to "Monty's" but his legacy is still very much alive with our raw bar and the Coconut Grove Arts Festival which he founded and is now in it's 54th year.
