This is our "go to" restaurant for special occasion dining -- holidays, anniversaries, birthdays, etc. I've never had a bad meal here. If you're unsure about what to order, try the shrimp and grits. Theirs sets the standard!

We both ordered chips as the appetizer and the shrimp grits for our entre. The wait staff were all awesome! Very helpful. The chips tasted great but it was loaded, even visibly, with rock salt. It got to the point it was hard to eat but a few bites. Was looking forward to she shrimp grits to get all that... More

City Grocery is a foodie experience. The dining room is small and has that rustic vibe; brick walls and lots of wood. Our table was shaky, but our waiter fixed the rocking immediately. The meal was good but the real highlight was the service. Our waiter was pleasant, charming,and made such a cute deal over our anniversary that we were... More

My colleagues and I stopped by on a Friday night -- even at 6pm, the place was packed. We opted to sit at the small bar and were not disappointed. Service there was excellent and friendly. We also got our drink quickly. All three of us were all satisfied with our dinners. I had the leek soup -- amazing, and... More

We watched the sun set from the rooftop-ish bar at The Graduate and meandered over to City Grocery for dinner. The restaurant is located on Oxford's square which is undeniably interesting and lovely. City Grocery is located in one of those lovely buildings and has managed to even up the charm with ambiance. But in their quest for ambience they... More

My parents and I go to City every Friday for lunch. We always have a great meal and the service is the best in Oxford. Interesting specials every day which are always very good. I tradition in our family that I hope continues for years to come.

Run, don't walk, to this lovely restaurant in the square in Oxford, Ms. nice atmosphere, great food for brunch/lunch. Accommodating wait staff. I was in from California having lunch with friends, and I was able to order exactly what I had a hankering for a la carte: Parmesan cheese grits, biscuits, poached eggs. Sure satisfied my hankering in the most... More
