I enjoy eating at Grits Grill for breakfast. I had rarely eaten grits before I tried them here and found that they are delicious! I love them especially with fried eggs and feel like a true transplanted Southerner thanks to this restaurant!

When on the outer banks, we make a point to go to Grits Grill for breakfast at least once. They have gotten smart and put a hostess outside with a podium to take names. This keeps people from crowding up by the register. Before, servers...More

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!
