Had cheesy grits that were creamy, thick & delicious. No runny stuff here. Reasonably priced & busy but we got in & served quickly. A definite stop on any OBX trip.

Otherwise cutsey diner, bar top and booths or table eating. Ordered french toast, egg, bacon special added on cheese grits.... More

This decor at this eatery is reminiscent of a 1950/60's diner. Lunch for the two of us consisted of a Spanish omelet with hash browns and a cheese steak with onion rings. The omelet was large and well prepared. The hash browns were grill prepared with just a bit of bacon fat for flavor. The hash browns were really shredded... More

Grits Grill offers great breakfast choices and a fine omelet. Staff is awesome! I have eaten breakfast at Grits Grill at least once a month. Will continue to do so. Have gotten lunch to go a couple of times, great sandwiches & wraps

Full disclosure, I'm not a big fan of Grits. But my son and I popped into this restaurant in the shopping mall near to Fresh Markets, even though the name of the restaurant is 'Grits Grill'. But what a lovely surprise. Happy, smiling staff (especially Roxy) who offered a warm welcome as we were shown to our table. This is... More

We both had omelets for lunch. Good sized and prepared well. Reasonable prices and good service. In shopping center, but identifiable from the highway.

Grits Grill is a decidedly southern place to have a great breakfast or lunch year round. It's open till 2 pm daily. Most of the cooking is done right behind the diner style front counter. Eggs any style, chipped beef, omelettes, hotcakes and of course grits (cooked just about any style) are breakfast specialties and served anytime. Lunch is full of specials, deli offerings and big, juicy burgers. Owned locally. Staff is well known for being warm and friendly. Come have breakfast with us anytime!
