Solid service and outstanding food! Great location in historic Charleston. My only disappointment was not ordering one of their latte's; the area dedicated to espresso didn't look like they were open when we arrived, so I ordered black coffee (which was good). The place is popular, so arrive early.

We walked from the Mill House (about 30mins). Tried the shrimp and grits and the huevos rancheros and both were excellent. The staff was also very friendly and chatty.

Had the "Dirty Chicken" and loved it! Chicken breast over a biscuit, smothered with cheddar cheese and gravy. Nice sized portion and very reasonable prices. I will be back!

Just came back from a wonderful meal at Hominy Grill. We were very lucky to get a table because the line was long, so we opted to sit outside. Although it was chilly, they have outdoor heaters. They are also closing for vacation this week. They have a great variety of choices. We had the loaded grits special and the... More

My husband and I were celebrating my mom's birthday and had breakfast here at Hominy Grill. We visited on a Saturday morning around 10am. We were told that the wait would be 25 minutes, but it really took about 15 minutes. You won't want to miss the breakfast, though! Seating was comfortable. There is also outdoor seating with heating lamps,... More

Dinner here was delightful. The fresh veggies were prepared to perfection. The food was served piping hot without a long wait time. Our server was very efficient & knowledgeable which was a pleasure. Just a relaxing casual spot to enjoy friends.

We had brunch here on a Saturday. It was crowded but took less time to be seated than anticipated. I loved my chicken biscuit meal and my husband really liked his catfish and grits meal. The service was fast and polite.

I am not a grits fan but I absolutely loved their grits with the shrimp. We also had the salmon cakes. I thought they were alright but the shrimp and grits stole the show. The restaurant itself is surprisingly cute. Looking from the outside i didn't expect much. But when I stepped in I was pleasantly surprised :)

Stopped in here while walking back from a visit to the Citadel and Hampton Park. Sat out on the patio, on an unusually warm Halloween Day. The waiters were friendly and helpful. And they kept the water and tea glasses full. Surveyed other plates as they passed and it all looked delicious. I went with the Pork Belly Sandwich, with... More

Mmmmm, perfect collards served w spicey vinegar, worthy mac n cheese (this is one of my measuring marks) and white beans w rib meat. All well seasoned and served in ample portions. Cornbread was a beautiful golden, slightly crisp bottomed slice. Honey was a great touch. Fried chicken was crisp and seasoned. Not greasy at all. Biscuits tall and fluffy.... More
