What would you expect from a place called Grits Grill? Everything else was great also. The Greek omelet was delicious. My husband thought the biscuits & gravy was some of the best he's ever had. The coffee was good. The waitresses were pleasant & knew what they were doing. The place was clean & bright. It was a perfect place... More

Four of us had breakfast at this small local grill. The food was very good and our waitress was helpful. Everything was cooked to order and served steaming hot. The one negative - no skim milk, only whole milk. It's located in a shopping strip and lots of locals were eating there, so you know it's good.

I've been going to Grits Grill for years. My grandpa took me when he was still living when I was a child and I continue to go back today. The atmosphere is welcoming, the staff is wonderful, and the food is delicious! Very family-friendly and hospitable. I especially love their omelettes!

Slaw dog was very good bun was soggy. BLT was good. Onion rings were way too greasy even for a diner. Reuben was gross. Bread was soggy, corn beef didn't have any favor. It was gross and couldn't eat it.

I only ordered a fruit plate but I was with a party of 8 and everyone enjoyed their food. People enjoyed blueberry pancakes, croissant sandwiches, hash browns, and omelettes and I heard no complaints

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!
