Seafood & Spirits at Monty's Happy Hour
|Daily happy hour, even in the rain.|
2550 S. Bayshore Drive, Coconut Grove
Hours: Monday through Friday, 4-8 p.m.
Deals: Half off all cocktails and beer discounts. $3 Stone Crab claws and $2 for two shrimp, oysters or clams from raw bar.
Scene: You haven't lived through a real happy hour until you're caught in a deluge at Monty's in Coconut Grove and you're forced, along with hundreds of other happy hour-ers, to squeeze tightly under one of the dozen or so Tiki Huts they have. Luckily, the specials, including $3 Stone Crab claw specials and $1 per for shrimp, oysters and clams, make sharing close quarters easy.
Tiki Huts are crab legs.
Conclusion: It's not often a happy hour can simultaneously provide an appropriate backdrop for hard-partying college kids, serious drink pounders and families. But Monty's does the trick. Part of it is due to nothing more as it stretches along a good bit of the bayside in the north Grove, but the friendly vibe and salt air seem to add to a venue that welcomes all for seafood and spirits.
