Had a wonderful breakfast. Service was slow, but everything was done with a smile. Probably the best biscuit of any place we had tried.

Grits Grill has fantastic breakfast sandwiches. I recommend having bacon, egg, and cheese on a biscuit sandwich.

I have eaten here several times over the years and have never been disappointed. This time I had the Reuben Sandwich and it was excellent! Always great service and food.

The menu said that the grits would be topped by bacon, onions, peppers, and some gravy, as well as the grits. My friend was skeptical, but I was feeling adventurous. I decided to see if they could improve over what restaurants in Charleston, SC have...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!
