Excellent hot breakfast. The biscuits were amazing, huge and flakey. One of our group had chipped beef and we were all jealous! He said it was excellent. Portions are huge, service was quick and friendly.

Had some of the best biscuits ever-flaky, tender and buttery. The baker knows her/his stuff - you could see flecks of butter inside, biscuit heaven! Shrimp n Grits great, cheerful and quick service.

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!
