Stopped in for dinner after a busy day in Key West and it was perfect. We sat at the bar and ordered dinner from the Garbos truck outside. The food was great and the bar was relaxing and fun. Highly recommend!

My wife and I stopped by for sangria before ordering from Garbo's Grill. Nice happy hour specials. We were able to eat our meal inside at the bar. The bartender was very nice.

Grunts is just off the well-beaten path of Duval Street, but it feels miles away. Clean, friendly, tiny old house that makes a fantastic bar. I didn't try any food served from the Airstream trailer in the back, but it smelled wonderful.

Lots of memorabilia to look at all over the walls and the bartender was very friendly. Nice place to cool off. We went because of all they hype for Garbos Tacos.

No disrespect to Grunts but I thought it was an extension of Garbo's (speculating they have to be related?). We didn't eat but did order cocktails to accompany our Garbo's meal. Great craft beer selection and cool cocktails.

Grunts was great! Really nice bartender and she had great recommendations! Wouldn't have gone there but we ordered food from Garbos (food truck in the back) and decided to have a drink. They don't have frozen drinks but a good selection of beer, wine and other mixed drinks! Really neat setup throughout the little bar!

Great music and drinks, especially it you want to get away from the craziness or Duvall St. Good atmosphere. You can si outside without the music being overbearing. Really cool atmosphere, unassuming front. Definitely recommend for a more chill experience.

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