“Excellent food, service, and ambiance.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

All of us had wonderful meals. The fish tacos were incredible ! My friend ordered the lobster macaroni and cheese. I thought it sounded weird, but when she took the first forkfull and starting moaning, I had to try some of hers. It WAS delicious ! Our waiter, Milan, was so attentive and friendly and gave us some great tips on what to do in KW. The outdoor seating is really neat. You're kind of sitting on a brick patio out in front of the restaurant with huge palm trees surrounding you and backlit with pretty lights. Our entire experience was perfect.

“Good Food and wonderful Waiter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012

We ate at Grunts last night I had mahi-mahi with scallops, and my husband had mango snapper and shrimp. This was the best food we have ever had in Key West, even beating out Blue Heaven. It was sublime. Our waiter, Milan, was charming, engaging in conversation about his homeland, the Czech Republic, even his mother, who is blessed to have a son like him. He suggested the Key Lime Pie. Surprisingly, we have been to the "rock" five times, and have never had any Key Lime Pie. The pie was declicious; subtle lime flavor topped off with homemade whipped cream. Needless to say, the atmosphere of dining outside was perfect.

“Nice place, best food.”

I had the baby back ribs and my girlfriend the mahi and scallops, both very tasty. White sangria was very good and my draft in a frosty cup made it very refreshing experience. recomend it all the way

“Great little find just of duval street!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Great find, excellent happy hour from 4 each day in frozen frosted glasses. You need them in key west heat! Tried the food the next day. The best meal of the week too. Lobster Mac and cheese and sweet baby back ribs, awesome! Great little beer garden and the cleanest and smartest looking pub we had the pleasure to visit all week. Live music inside too. We can't wait to return! Highly recommend.
