Grouper and Chips deserves it's legendary status. It doesn't look like much - tucked away in a small strip off a busy road - but the cosy atmosphere and no-nonsense service make the place what it is. You can have practically everything with bread or without. Of course they do grouper, but several other things too. Crab cakes are great... More

We stumbled on this place when we went to the UPS store next door in Trinity plaza. There were people lined up to go in at lunch time so we thought this place must be good. We went back for dinner and now we know why people were lined out. We ordered a Grouper basket of 3 fish and chips... More

The restaurant is small so we had to take a table outside. There were six in our party and we had to wait well over 45 minutes for our meal. I ordered the blackened grouper with caesar salad and I have to admit that the portion of fish was generous and it was delicious.

We come to Naples every other year for Thanksgiving and this is our must-do restaurant. Found it eight years ago and it's always good. Great grouper and chips. Great seafood pastas. Love the local family business feel.

We arrived early lunch time on a Saturday afternoon, the restaurant was very busy (which I always take as a good sign). The wait ended up being arouns 20 minutes, although we were initially told about 5-10. Regardless, the waitress was very sweet and worked hard to clear tables and get everyone seated as quickly as possible. Not the mention... More

This is an in-a-mall-establishment that is not to be missed for local seafood at a reasonable price. Do not be deterred by the small site, the seafood is great! The crab cakes are tasty, best as they taste like crab rather than breadcrumbs. The staff are cordial and want to assure you are satisfied. All seafood on the menu is... More

In Naples for a few days and wanted to try some local seafood. It is in a strip mall, has maybe twenty seats inside and some outside. Easy to miss or pass on since it's not typical. It was pretty full at 745 on a Thursday. My wife and I had a beer; she had the grouper blackened salad and... More

New to town I search Trip Advisor and that other on line resource for a good fresh seafood restaurant...it's the day after Halloween and in the midst of the World Series not that either had any bearing in my choice of Grouper and Chips but at least as I entered this small cozy restaurant the seating was ample to allow...

A celebration isn't a celebration unless I enjoy the bouillabaisse at Grouper & Chips. I'd call it the best in town. Delicious broth, perfectly cooked seafood, and there's a lot of both to enjoy. It's just delightful. Also, the key lime pie is just perfect.

With so much of its business being seasonal, you know an original (i.e. non-chain) Naples restaurant is good if it has survived and thrived for decades. That's exactly the case for GULF COAST GROUPER & CHIPS. This small, unassuming establishment near downtown Naples offers excellent, hearty seafood at very reasonable prices. Currently, lunch specials include sauteed salmon with veggies and... More
