Great evening. Good atmosphere, cold beer, and great food from Garbo's Grill food truck. Just off Duval St.

Came here to eat at Garbos and wanted couple of beers....word of caution... know what you want when ordering a beer because Heaven Forbid you have any questions about anything other than crappy Bud Light or Miller Lite (especially if the surly girl with the southern accent is working)...she'll just throw a menu at you and say "here, you wanna...

Great sangria! Had both the white and red. Quiet little bar off Duval. Doesn't serve food, but garbos grill food truck is next top it providing amazing food. Service was great.

Went to eat at Garbo's which is a part of the complex, Garbo's has the food Grunt's has the beverages. Very good sangria and we enjoyed a good live Band on a Friday night.

Very nice little bar with great decor inside, and an outdoor seating area hidden off Duval. The live music is just the cherry on top!

Great place, laid back atmosphere, very shaded for the outdoor eating from the incredible food truck! Go with the fish tacos, awesome.

Stopped in for a drink while we waited for our food from Garbo's. We got the strawberry margaritas and they were very good and packed a bit of a punch. Small cozy bar with a nice front porch and patio area. Huge upside is Garbo's grill right in the back. Best taco's on the island.

Met a local couple that recommended that my husband and I try this place and glad that we did! Garbo's Grill which is a food truck out back was great too!

We got Sangria to go with our tacos from Garbo's Grill. Both nights the bartenders were very friendly. The Sangria was really good, but we had better while in Key West. The live entertainment the second night we were there was also really good and fun to listen to.

Thank MavsFan125

A beautiful brick courtyard and relaxed surroundings with bamboo and palm trees. Located in old town but it feels like miles away. Wifi available.
