Miami New Times' Description

Monty's has been an institution in the 305 for as long as most locals can remember. It once dominated the chi-chi restaurant scene but then lost its luster after real gourmands moved to town. This is not to say dinner at Monty's is akin to eating at Applebee's, but it's pretty close and definitely more expensive -- a hot dog goes for $7. Probably to offset the loss of patrons, Monty's caters to the drinking crowd. Indeed, it has become a frequent hangout for those who like to unwind after work and on weekends without having to deal with insane parking or long lines. In spite of that, you can still get more substantial fare here too. Among the most popular menu items are the lobster shrimp roll ($16) and the ribs ($23). Crab claws ($34) are also a favorite and vary by season -- October 15 to May 15 for Florida stone crabs and May 16 through October 14 for Jonahs. The service and food are OK but overpriced.

    Sometimes you just want to kill everyone in Miami. The traffic, the sweating, the general idiocy.Cool down there, chief. You need to get your ass to Monty's. Enjoy a quiet beer on the water's edge. Stare out past the marina and watch the ships go by. Contemplate the vastness of the ocean and the insignificance of your worries.Or order a bucket load of margaritas and a half-dozen... More >>

    Fresh menu just off the boat and famous "Painkiller" drinks. Great for happy hour and taking the pain off of a long work week. -George French, Miami Social

    Excellent place for a laid-back, all-South Beach happy hour w/o any of the drama. Drinks are half priced and delicious. Try the Pain Killer #3 and be all sorts of happy.
