A cozy bar with friendly staff.....

This bar is inside an older little house, renovated and opened up, surrounded by a large outdoor patio with tables and chairs. Garbo Grill food cart located in the back patio with excellent food and the best customer service. The lady bartender in Grunts took the time to tell us the history of... read more

During my wifes and my recent trip to Key West we decided to revisit a wonderful outdoor eatery we had found on previous visits. GRUNTS-- just one short block off of Duval Street in old Key West. Arrived around 800 pm for dinner. We stood at the entrance gate (outside dining) waiting for a hostess to seat us. On our... More

We read about the Peach Sangria on Trip Advisor. It is wonderful and reasonably priced. The bartender was extremely nice. We had sangria with our tacos from Garbos food truck. Lots of fun!!!

We came here on the recommendation of friends who told us we should order food from the food court in back but enjoy. Drinks , tables and atmosphere provided by. Grunts. We were not disappointed. There were limited draft beer choices, but an extensive wine list, so we got a nice white pino greggio and waited to 15 minutes for... More

Grunts has Tennessee Steve on Sunday's for all day BBQ. Award winning ribs that fall off the bone, finger licking good! Enjoy a calm atmosphere off the beaten path with a cold beer or delicious wine. Best ribs I've ever had and I lived in Texas for years. Yummy!

We stopped at lunchtime for the food at Garbo's and since tables outdoors were filled, ate and drank inside Grunts. The bartender was friendly with the locals, but could care less about the rest of us. Is this the only place in the south where you're charged for an Iced Tea refill? And that tea came from a purchased plastic... More

This review is for the bar, the food is provided by Garbo's Grill. We did eat here in the past but I believe they have closed their kitchen and are working solely with Garbo's Grill from what I can tell. Excellent low key bar, live music on some days. Just enough off Duval Street to be more laid back but... More

This bar is located just off Duvall Street on Caroline, and we had drinks here one night while dining on taco's from Garbo's Grill which is located just behind Grunt's in a food truck. (Side note - in addition to going to Grunt's, you must also go to Garbo's and get their tacos. Uh-Ma-Zing). Anyway, the bartender at Grunt's was... More

The taco truck was in and the fish tacos were awesome. As an avid taco eater I can definitely say these were worth waiting for! (which you may have to wait, but grab a margarita while waiting and you'll be all set to go) we heard from multiple people that the beef tacos were even better! Great place with awesome... More
