Excellent fish - the red snapper with prawns was particularly good. Service was fine, and the outdoor location shaded by trees was lovely. Only slight downside was the key lime pie - tasted more like a slightly flavourless lime cheesecake.

This restaurant is a hidden gem in one of the side streets of Duval st. The wine selection (sold by the bar next door) is great and waiting on the bar with life music was nice. The waiter let us know that we would have to wait approx. 30min for the food, which was alright for us. The food arrived... More

A friend and I were bouncing around for Happy Hour and decided we hadn't been to Grunts in a while so we pooped in. We sat at the bar about 6:40pm and ordered a couple draft beers. We were very excited when they were delivered in frosty cold mugs and asked for a menu. After making our choices, we asked... More

This is definately one of the best restaurants in Key West. Everything is fresh and delicious. My favourite dish is a red snapper and grilled shrimp in key-lime and caper beurre blanc - absolutely delishious. My friends ordered chicken and tuna and all was great, not even one dish that would not recommend. The surroundings are beautiful, tables are located... More

I picked Grunts for my birthday dinner based on the reviews here and that it's rated 15! I made sure to call to see how late they served, keep in mind that all kitchens close at 10, only pizza after that! We arrived at around 9:30 pm and were seated. I had called, earlier, to find out if we were... More

Would have given this 5 stars except for our initial experience with the hostess. Walked in without reservations around 8:30 on a Monday evening. Asked for a table for two. The hostess escorted us to the bar and said it would be a 20-25 minute wait. I inquired if all the empty tables were reserved but she did not respond.... More

My wife and I ate here for our 18th anniversary. GREAT choice! We started off with drinks from the bar, then moved down to an outdoor table when the restuarant opened. Our waiter said we had to try the lobster mac and cheese. We did....he was right. My wife had the mahi mahi with scallops, and I had the red... More

Amazing meal. Lovely, quiet patio. Great service. We started with the lobster macaroni & cheese. My husband had scallops; I had scallops/mahi-mahi. My husband had room for key lime pie. EXCELLENT from beginning to end.
