“Our favorite restaurant in Key West”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Read about grunts on trip advisor and decided to check it out on our last night in Key West. Only one block off Duval, Grunts offered a quiet, intimate atmosphere. The owner was great and service was very quick. My wife LOVED the white sangria and my IPA was very good. We had the lobster Mac, fish tacos, and shrimp gambas. Everything was cooked perfectly, came out hot and tasted AMAZING. Our only complaint is we didn't find it sooner or we would have eaten there all week. Grunts is a must visit

“Good food, lovely atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Very good food with correct (not huge) sized portions. The atmosphere is very romantic and fairly private from the street.

“Wonderful setting!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

We dined outside on a lovely evening. Our waitress was the best we encountered during our stay in Key West. Roast pork was wonderful, as was the jerk chicken (very moist and delicious). One friend had Mahi Mahi, which was tasty, but a bit dry. However, I would definitely recommend this place; we all thought it was terrific. Also, nice, mellow live music to eat by. Lovely place!

“Great Food, atmosphere and bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Went to Grunts when i was in Key West for 2 weeks. The atmosphere was romantic as well as the food being great. The staff was exceptional (thanks Surry) and knowledgeable. After dinner go into the bar for drinks and have great conversations with the bartender, locals and people vacationing. If I lived there i would be a regular. Go there if you ever get a chance.
