We went there for Sunday lunch and dinner and waited about 5 minutes outside on a bench. The interior is a little shabby but has charm. The service was good, food was great. Barbecue and philly cheese steak sandwiches were very good. They serve breakfast...More

Tried the seafood omelet and was amazed. Paired up with spectacular grits and you have an excellent ocean combo.

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.

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!
