Mr. Grouper’s Restaurant – Turks and Caicos

by Alli

I’ve fallen in love with Mr. Grouper’s Restaurant and Catering in Providenciales (Provo) Turks and Caicos. It’s where the locals dine.

Actually, Mr. Grouper’s delivers (dinner only) to Alexandra Resort (read the review here) and it’s right up the street from our resort.

Mr. Grouper's Restaurant Review - Provo, Turks and CaicosI just can’t get enough of Mr. Grouper’s Coconut Crusted Grouper with Mango Chutney Sauce. I’ve got to figure out the recipe and make it when I get home. I wonder if I can talk the owner into giving me his recipe. I’ll try.

Mr. Grouper’s serves Caribbean, Cajun/Creole, American and Italian food. From burgers to lobster and everything in between, all I can say is you’ve got to eat there if you’re ever in Provo.

Fried Plantains is a big fave of mine. Mr. Grouper’s knows how to do it. And instead of rice and beans, it’s rice and peas here in Turks and Caicos. And they are delicious too.

My favorite appetizer at Mr. Grouper’s is Turks Conch Fritters. Conch is pronounced konk and is a tropical marine mollusk in that big, beautiful spiral shell.  The conch fritters reminds me of a cross between a crab cake and a hushpuppy. Fresh conch is mixed with onion, garlic, bell pepper, celery and cilantro and deep fried, baby. The fritters are served with a spicy mayo and cocktail sauce. Yum.

My husband’s favorite is the Jerk Chicken and the Blackened Grouper. The baked potato and coleslaw are delicious, too.

If you go, get the mac and cheese. I thought my daughter made the best mac and cheese in the world.  Sorry, Rebekah! You’ve got some competition out there.

More about Mr. Grouper’s

Mr. Grouper’s is open 10:00 – 10:30 pm Monday-Saturday and on Sunday’s from 3:00 pm – 11:00 pm.

The prices are very reasonable when compared to other restaurants in the area. My Coconut Crusted Grouper with peas & rice and fried plantains is $21.00 and it’s a large portion.

The whole fried grouper is $18.00 and all the seafood served at Mr. Grouper’s is caught locally.

Regretfully, it’s not lobster season, or I would have tried the Cracked Lobster Burger. Lobster season in Provo is August 1 – March 31. Looks like I’ll have to come back then.

If you’re ever in Provo, a visit to Mr. Grouper’s is a must. It’s voted the #3 restaurant on the island. It’s #1 in my book. It’s that good.

That sounds like a GREAT place to eat. If I ever make it out that way, I will definitely stop in for a meal or two.

You know that really looks and sounds like good southern home cooking! I was going to pick a favorite but it all sounds good to me! Mango chutney, mac-n-cheese and those hushpuppies! It’s worth the trip for the food!

I’m so jealous of you right now. I grew up in the Bronx with a lot of Caribbeans. I got a taste of their food early on and was hooked.

I love Jerk anything, rice and peas and curry anything.

Anita Fonte July 20, 2016 - 10:20 am

So envious right now with your beautiful photos of the food and views. This is on my list of places to visit especially the good food.

Pam July 20, 2016 - 1:15 pm

Mr. Groupers sounds so good. My favorite thing abi visiting the Carribbean is the conch fritters. They’re so good.

I need a vacation to a tropical paradise. Turk & Caicos looks like heaven. The resort looks just amazing and the restaurant is definitely a must visit. My husband would eat himself sick with all that yummy fried fish.

lisa July 20, 2016 - 7:11 pm

I love trying new foods. And I really love seafood. This sounds like an awesome restaurant to check out.

Liz Mays July 20, 2016 - 8:16 pm

I think we’d like this restaurant. I know my boyfriend is a big fan of grouper. I bet he’d like that coconut crusted grouper.

Jasmine Eclipse July 20, 2016 - 8:17 pm

This food and scenery reminds me so much of my home in Hawaii! I miss the tropics… I haven’t had good tropical seafood in so long!

Bella July 20, 2016 - 8:49 pm

Great food on vacation really is the cherry on top of the cake. All of these dishes look so yummy!

Jeanine July 20, 2016 - 10:06 pm

Wow. The food there! That looks beyond incredible and I am telling you I love my food. I would be all over this place!

zan July 20, 2016 - 10:09 pm

Makes me want some of that good food! And yes, “ain’t” nobody says rice and beans down there!! But seriously, though, these meals remind me of home and truly make me want to have a big plate right now.Glad the food price was reasonable and that you are enjoying all the delicious food and ocean water. Sorry about the lobster:(

Amanda Tempel July 20, 2016 - 11:22 pm

Turks and Caicos are definitely on my list of places to go! When I make it, I’ll have to give Mr. Grouper’s a try.

James July 21, 2016 - 1:02 am

Looks like this was really good. I’m a big fan of conch fritters.

Rebecca Swenor July 21, 2016 - 4:06 am

Mr. Groupers restaurant sounds like a great place to dine or to order from indeed. The food looks and sounds delicious. It had to be nice when the restaurant with great food delivers dinner to the resort you are staying at and is right down the road too. Thanks for sharing your experience and great photos of this awesome food.

Heather July 21, 2016 - 9:32 am

It sounds really good. The mac n cheese looks great. It looks like its baked. There’s something about baked mac n cheese that makes it better. The fritters with that mayo sauce is calling out to me too.

Annemarie LeBlanc July 21, 2016 - 11:21 am

We have not been to Turks and Caicos yet, but it does seem like an amazing place. That picture of the coconut crusted grouper looks so heavenly! I will try to remember the place if and when we get to have a chance to vacation in Turks and Caicos.

ricci July 21, 2016 - 2:30 pm

All of this food looks amazing!! I hope to travel to Turks and Caicos one day!!

Bonnie @wemake7 July 21, 2016 - 9:10 pm

I would love to eat there. The food looks really good. I’ve never been in that area yet but would like to someday.

Terri Beavers July 22, 2016 - 10:14 am

Now that is my kind of restaurant. The Coconut Crusted Grouper with Mango Chutney Sauce sounds divine.

Anosa August 2, 2016 - 2:45 pm
