I ran over to this place to pick up breakfast and decided to stay and eat mine and take the husband's back with me...huge serving of Shrimp and Grits...enough to feed three of me! Great service and atmosphere as well as good food!

I've been going to Grits Grill for years. My grandpa took me when he was still living when I was a child and I continue to go back today. The atmosphere is welcoming, the staff is wonderful, and the food is delicious! Very family-friendly and hospitable. I especially love their omelettes!

Slaw dog was very good bun was soggy. BLT was good. Onion rings were way too greasy even for a diner. Reuben was gross. Bread was soggy, corn beef didn't have any favor. It was gross and couldn't eat it.

I only ordered a fruit plate but I was with a party of 8 and everyone enjoyed their food. People enjoyed blueberry pancakes, croissant sandwiches, hash browns, and omelettes and I heard no complaints

In a strip mall, eggs only fried or scrambled even though the menu says "any way you want". Guess it's like Henry Ford - you can have the Model T in any color as long as it's black.

Simple lunch and breakfast menu. The food was good and the prices were reasonable. It was also clean and you could purchase the obligatory shirt if you like.

This is a great place to stop for a quick breakfast, before heading to the beach or heading back home. Service was great, food is kinda basic, but good. 3 star.

We had been here on our last visit to the outer banks, so we thought we would give it a try again. It's fine for breakfast , service is friendly and portions are huge. They do tend to add things on that you would expect to be included, so be prepared to see an additional charge for cheese on those... More

We stopped here for breakfast on our way out of town last Monday. Being a weekday there was no wait. Our food was great. Huge portions. I had shrimp and grits and my husband had creamed chipped beef. The server was friendly.

Description
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!
