“Honeymoon”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

This restaurant took me by surprise. What a lovely little place with great ambiance! The landscape was beautiful, the waitress was helpful and pleasant, the music from the band inside was the perfect volume, and the food was fantastic! Go and get some Lobster Mac and Cheese!

“Finally a well maintained and freshly cooked restaurant”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

After sing in key west for over a month, I couldn't find a restaurant that was authentic seafood. Also I couldn't find a place where something was missing. Finally I stumbled on grunts and the food, atmosphere and service was perfect, I finall stumbled on a true key west restaurant, everything was ridiculous. I was siked.

“Lobster Mac and cheese!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

I have had lm&c before, but this one was truly awesome! A velvety Colby cheese sauce and lobster tail pieces that screamed "Lobster" with every bite. You gotta eat this! Plus the key lime pie was made from scratch and was a great surprise - and it wasn't green like the fake ones are!

“One of the best meals I have had for years.”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

Grunts is a perfect example of the value of TripAdvisor.if it were not for the very high ratings here, I probably would not have discovered this restaurant; and upon seeing it from the street, I would have had no clue as to the incredible meal that I was about to enjoy.

I started with the lobster mac n cheese, followed by a Florida lobster topped with a delicious seafood mousse. It was accompanied by mashed potatoes and delicious vegetables.My friend had the mahi mahi and said it was by far the best that he had ever eaten.

The service was impeccable, attentive without being overbearing. The tables were set around the garden and were not too close together. The fact that it was a delightful Key West evening certainly added to the perfection of the experience.

The prices were reasonable, not at all out of line for a good meal in Key West. I could not give this restaurant a higher recommendation. It is superb.
