Awesome dinner !

My daughter and I ate there on May 19. We ordered as soon as we got there. Our order was ready in about 15 min. The mahi tacos were fantastic and the shrimp tacos were even better. We got an outside table at Garbo's grill and it was happy hour also. GREAT food and atmosphere at both

So we ate here in May 2014, liked it. And returned again in May 2015 to find a truck sitting in the back, and you find your table, and stand at the truck to order, then get your food. And go inside to get your drink, and carry it back. The food average, not even a wow to the taste.... More

Sorry your visit was not what you expected, but Grunts has not changed. Our previous food vendor chose not to renew their contract and decided to go elsewhere. If you look on Trip Advisor, Garbo's Grill is a highly rated and popular food truck and we are happy to have them with us. More

Tucked away along with Garbo's, the atmosphere is welcoming and friendly. They let you cozy up to the bar with your food from Garbo's. Good beer selection.

We grabbed a drink here while waiting for our food from Garbo's, which they also allow you to bring in and eat there. We love craft beers and were excited to see such a great selection. The bartender was great as well.

I got the white sangria & hubby got a beer. He liked mine so much he got one & tossed his beer. Enjoyed it on the patio with our Shrimp Mango from Garbos Grill.

Great beer selection in a cool conch cottage. Will let you eat your food from Garbo's at the bar. Neat working relationship between these two establishments.

Try the sangria! Fun rustic way to spend your wait for the Garbo's food. Found some nice locals who gave great suggestions, friendly and relaxed- some of the best prices on beer we found.

A place in Key West that serves awesome craft beers! Also had a beer from my home state of Maine. Shipyard and Sea Dog beers. Friendly staff. Jenni was our bartender and she was from Maine!!!! Probably why they had the Shipyard and Sea Dog but she obviously knows her beer. They had a great band playing too. Quiet and... More

Originally stopped in to go to Garbo's out back. Came back a second time for Grunts. Great little bar, a welcome respite from the zoo that is on Duval. If you're looking for something different, it's a great place to stop in. Jenni was behind the bar both nights we were in, took care of us wonderfully. We went plenty... More
