I've been to Grits several times, we live pretty close. Everything I've gotten has been great. If you are looking for grits that are served breakfast style, this is not the place! If you are looking for grits served in unique, delicious ways this is the place! They have lots of great food that doesn't even have grits.

Well, I finally made it to the Grits Cafe. I should have looked at the website first. They probably didn't appreciate us coming in in our driving all day clothes. We stuck with the appetizers. We had southwestern eggrolls (with shrimp) and the Grits Martini, that my children were afraid for me to eat and drive. It had grits, asiago cheese, shrimp and bacon-that is about it. It was YUMMY! Thanks for the suggestion.


Chris, I totally feel you brother. I like to see that a lot of upscale Southern restaurants are using grits in their dishes. But I still think the best grits are at Waffle House :)

There's a mill in Tennessee where many of these places get their grits from. I saw a thing about it on Turner South a long time ago and had meant to blog about it. I'll try to track it down...


BTW, they have a web site (gritscafe.com)and aren't open Sunday-Monday.


I had the grilled salmon salad and the creme brulee! My lunch partner had the special, a Vietnamese beef soup and Thai pork wrap. Everything was superb! I told them about the blog and gave them the address. My server, Marilyn, was very interested (and good at her job). The food was great and the presentation even more so! My dessert had a real orchid as a garnish. Thanks for the heads up as our "Gourmet on the Go", Mark! So now is it doctor, prophet, gourmand?

Were the grits good. I love grits. But have found few places that serve them well. My greatest dissapointment has been the Cracker Barrel...amazing that they serve terrible grits. I need to get back to Georgia! I was in Franklin, TN this weekend for the CIA Summit and ate at Dotson's Restuarant, family owned and operated....Good food there, too. Still didn't like the grits, though!


Sounds like something to put on the list. While in Nashville recently I checked out The Loveless Cafe. It was good too, but I grew up on southern dishes:-)


I've got to be up there next week....
Sounds like dinner one night is already decided...


It sounds like a great place. I have never been to Georgia. Maybe someday.

    What's in my CD player

    • R.E.M. -

      R.E.M.: Accelerate CD/DVD
      Athens' own return with a trashy cool offering - their most consistent album in years. I think they're mad at their dad or something (****)

    • The Rolling Stones -

      The Rolling Stones: Shine a Light: Original Soundtrack
      This is what a live album SHOULD sound like. Unedited, unfixed - just a good recording of what happened that night... (****)

    • Mudcrutch -

      Mudcrutch: Mudcrutch
      Tom Petty and Mike Campbell reunite with their old band and forge an instant classic. (****)

    • Counting Crows -

      Counting Crows: Saturday Nights & Sunday Mornings
      It was pretty gutsy to lay it out the way they did: all the rockers on the "Saturday Night" section and all the ballads on the "Sunday Morning" side. But it works, and in a major way. Some of the best guitar work I've heard in recent memory. (*****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: The Lost Crowes
      WHY DIDN'T ANYBODY TELL ME ABOUT THIS RECORD?! You've heard most of these songs on other records, but it's just so raw and band-y here. Fall in love with the best band in the world all over again... (*****)

    • Pillar -

      Pillar: For The Love Of The Game
      So far this is the album to beat for the rock album of 2008 in the Christian market... The title track has kind of been my "theme song" the last couple of months. (*****)

    • Maylene and the Sons of Disaster -

      Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: II
      The perfect blend of Southern rock and metal - this is my favorite album right now. (*****)

    • Kevn Kinney -

      Kevn Kinney: Broken Hearts & Auto Parts
      I picked this up in Athens the other day. It starts out a little slow, but turns into vintage Kevn Kinney/Drivin n Cryin. This is as good as anything he/they have ever put out! (****)

    • The Black Crowes -

      The Black Crowes: Warpaint
      If you look up "killer" in the dictionary, you will find a picture of these guys.

    • Baroness -

      Baroness: Red Album
      So far the most original and inspiring music I've heard this year... (*****)

    • Down -

      Down: Down - Over The Under
      This is easily the most rockin' records I've ever owned. It's like redneck Soundgarden. Heaven for a dude like me... (*****)

    • Demon Hunter -

      Demon Hunter: Storm the Gates of Hell
      Don't let the "metalcore" label fool you. This album features some of the biggest and hookiest choruses you'll ever hear. "Lead Us Home", "Carry Me Down", and "Thorns" are great examples. Plus I think they'll give you your money back if the title track doesn't make your ears bleed :) (*****)
