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

The lauded shrimp and grits was tasty But rich yo the pint where it was hard to eat The pork Osso bucco was way too buttery and creamy. It... 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.

One of our favorites in Oxford, it has the best bartenders and service. We love that it has remained a very locals place.

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

Great value for the dollar, classic cafe on the Square. Provides that old South flavor to the meal. Lunch is very reasonable. Super location to meet friends. Highly recommend this Southern dining experience.

We went here because we heard so many good things. I had a steak that was perfectly cooked sitting on a bed of puréed carrots and nestled among crunchy fingerling potatoes. It was wonderful. My husband had an ahi tuna special. He forgot to tell them to cook the tuna medium rare. He thought there were too many flavors going... More

We were expecting a pleasant dinner with decent food. Instead, we enjoyed a truly memorable meal with exceptional food and service. From cocktails to appetizers, main course to dessert, everything was spot on. This restaurant is as good or better as the fine dining we have experienced in much larger towns with "foodie" cultures. Best of all, the atmosphere is... More
