Grunts is the bar, and Garbo's Grill, is the food truck. Grunts has an ideal venue, just off Duval with indoor and outdoor seating. Outdoors is perfect, with the bamboo palms and the lighting. More on Garbo's in a bit, but this review is for Grunts, the bar. Grunt has a decent selection of beer, but only one type of... More

Nicely appointed bar , very clean and friendly bar staff should invite you to stop here. Keeps you isolated from Duval St. bustle. Stop in and give them a try!

Got to find this place off Duval. Food cart in courtyard is awesome. Burger is the best. Meat flavoring is the thing that makes this so special. Got to try it to believe it.

I mean it's ok, I suppose. The beer was pretty cold so that's good. Sadly, you can't get a shot served from betwixt the forced together cleavage of a barmaid because they don't even sell liquor. The floors were devoid of any and all ambiance heightening peanut shells or even a splash or two of stale beer. I didn't see... More

Small food trailer in the back of Grunts. Korean Tacos and Fish Tacos were the best I have ever had!!! Have a beer at Grunts while you wait on your food!!

I stumbled upon this place while walking back to our hotel one night. It is tucked away, just off of Duval Street, and sets back off the road a bit. It has a nice little courtyard out in front of it with a few trees. At night it can make it easy to walk right by and not even notice... More

As one of the previous posters mentioned Grunts is not a restaurant it is a small but nice and friendly little bar that now hosts the Garbo's food truck on its property. Some of these reviews are a little misleading regarding the food available, and many of the pictures are out of date. I am reviewing becuase it was a... More
