Interesting set up with a bar (Grunts) in a shotgun style house and Garbos food truck (airstream) in the back. You can eat at an outside table, in the bar or take off site. We ordered a fish burrito which was loaded with dolphin (fish) tat was a bit on the dry side. Also ordered a shrimp burrito which was... More

great place to have a beer and listen to music and enjoy good food from a food truck in garden . The bar is in a Conch style home with plenty of open air with lots of character. Key West Style relaxing

However, the attitude of the bartender was terrible. There was no table service, so we approached the bar and ordered a couple of beers. When we went for the next round,... More

Every time I enter the door, we are greeted by a great smile and helping hand to their great selection of bottle and tap beer. Touting everything from pale ales to the darker Porter - we can always find what I and my friends like. Ms. Pat continues to remain my fav behind the counter. Her smile and fresh conversation...

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...
