Great vibe at the bar

Liked the vibe at the bar. We only went during the day, and not at night. Went here twice during our 7 day visit.

It's a little hole in the wall bar it's really awesome you really shouldn't try it because if you do your might mess up the atmosphere it's for cool people only.

As much time as we've spent in Key West, I can't believe we've never stumbled into Grunts before. We were glad we found it this trip. Lisa, the bartender, is very friendly and helpful. This is by far the cleanest bar in Key West...and that's not even close. The other great thing is the food truck, Garbos, is now located... More

My husband and I was on one of the trolley tours which passed this cute little house with some awesome blues music resignating from inside. Once our tour was over we decided to stop by Grunts for a few minutes on the way back to our inn. Lo and behold, a few minutes turned into almost two hours. The bar... More

During a 5 day trip, we found ourselves here three times. Garbo's is on the property so it's the perfect place to have a drink while you wait for food! Low key, cool and relaxing since it is one block off Duvall.

This is a cool little bar with lots of character. We had a few beers here while waiting for our food to be made at Garbo's, which is a great food truck directly behind the bar. The beer selection was adequate and the bartender was friendly and attentive. She was even happy to make beer recommendations and let us eat... More

Made a visit to the taco truck. Nice little bar with great service. No food, just beer and wine. Staff is very accommodating especially Pat.

This is one of those bars Jimmy Buffett sang about in "I have found me a home". "And there are so many quiet places where the smilin' eyes match the smilin' faces". Well decorated and like new. We were told when Garbo's is open they get very busy. We came by to eat at Garbo's but they were closed due... More

Quaint, fun locals place. Almost like having a beer in your own back yard. Quiet yes 1/2 block off Duval Street. Worth the trip.
