We had hoped for good food in a casual dining environment. The menu was extremely limited and the scarce cheap metal tables and chairs outside provided the limited seating. A so-so burger and a bag of cheap bar-be-cue chips is not my idea of memorable.

Although it is located only one block off of busy Duval Street at 409 Caroline, this place is like an oasis from all the fun, crowds and noise happening on the main drag in KW. This bar is set back from the street and has the appearance of a cabin that you would find in a rural area of the... More

If it wasn't for meeting some locals, we never would have found this bar and what a find it was! Perfect little bar, great music and a really fun crowd.

It seemed like a pretty great place: there are bike racks the front, tables are spaced out throughout the courtyard. Drinks are available inside at the bar (sangria was decent), and food at a trailer in back. We weren't able to find anything for our small children... everything on the menu seemed spicy, and the only drink available was a... More

Interesting set up with a bar (Grunts) in a shotgun style house and Garbos food truck (airstream) in the back. You can eat at an outside table, in the bar or take off site. We ordered a fish burrito which was loaded with dolphin (fish) tat was a bit on the dry side. Also ordered a shrimp burrito which was... More

great place to have a beer and listen to music and enjoy good food from a food truck in garden . The bar is in a Conch style home with plenty of open air with lots of character. Key West Style relaxing

We went to Grunts/Garbo for Friday night dinner. Order your food from the food truck at the back. Korean tacos were amazing as was the burger. Food was delicious! However, the attitude of the bartender was terrible. There was no table service, so we approached the bar and ordered a couple of beers. When we went for the next round,... More
