best slice of key lime pie and a must try lobster mac and cheese. Hubby and I split the lobster mac and cheese and fresh seared scallops. Oh man. So yummy Very small restaurant that didn't have air conditioning but the sweating was worth the eating!

I read the reviews on TripAdvisor and we asked the doorman at our hotel and he recommended we go to Caroline's instead. We went to Caroline's and read the menu and still decided to go to Grunts. The food was great. The lobster mac n cheese was awesome. I had the appetizer fish tacos and it was nothing special but... More

Met a Grunts employee at the Green Parrot who was genuinely excited about his job. He detailed the stuffed lobster and the lobster mac and cheese. It made us so hungry so the next night we gave it a try. Hubby had the quail on a mixed green salad and I had the yellowtail in a corn sauce over rice... More

We both had fish and it was just wonderful. eating in the court yard was beautiful. They had plenty of fans and you are under trees... More

My wife and I went here the recommendation of our hotel staff. They said it was very good. We found it to be relaxing and casual. The draw back was the outside seating in Key West in August. I found it necessary to sit in front of a fan. We found the food to be excellent along with the service.... More

Unique menu with many Caribbean selections. We have a 11 year old that does not eat fish yet loves the kids burger here (8oz)! Fish tacos for for something light and my favorite the Mahi Mahi and scallops combo. Bar service is separate, good to know in advance.
