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.

We actually came to eat at Garbos, but all the tables were taken, so we went inside the bar. We ordered beers...coldest beer I ever drank! Another plus...no kids! I love kids but sometimes want adult time only! Bartender so friendly! We ate and had a few more beers. I love this place!

Grunts is a great place to grab a cold beer after your boring husband makes you tour the Hemingway House. 😂 kidding. They have a great craft beer selection. Seems like they rotate their offerings. We loved the Ballast Point double IPA, the grapefruit, and even the watermelon beer. In fact, the watermelon beer actually went really well with the... More

We really enjoyed stopping here for a drink. It is just off of Duval but it feels like miles away when you are sitting in their beautiful outdoor seating area. The bartender was extremely friendly and the drinks were great. Can't wait to come back next year!

Stopped by for Happy Hour. Beer is cold and service is fine. A decent bar off the beaten track. Food is available at Garbo's, in the rear.

We arrived on the ferry today hungry and hot. As we made our way to our inn (another review) we passed the Grunt. I immediately thought it looked like my kind of place. After dropping our luggage, we made our way back and found a seat on the back patio. The Grint has a very cool island atmosphere-limited seating inside... More
