Arrived 30 minutes before closing and staff was welcoming and we felt we were not rushed at all. Our party had a mix of breakfast and sandwiches. All was good!!

My daughter loves shrimp and grits which is what she had for breakfast she said it was delicious. The biscuits were the best I've ever tasted didn't need any butter or jam.

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!
