I love breakfast here. I like that the place is small. Staff is friendly & enjoy each other as well as customers.

Ate out on the patio, perfect weather. The food was really good, 2 of us shared everything and had plenty to eat as the servings are very generous as well as very tasty. Staff was very pleasant and attentive.

With several selections available in historic downtown Murphys, Grounds is one of the best. Don't be deceived by the small exterior, there is plenty seating inside and a wonderful covered patio in the back. Serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, the perfect place for any one of the three. My wife and I enjoyed a lovely lunch on the back patio... More

Went here with local friends and really enjoyed the food; however, the service was marginal. Had the Greek sandwich and really it was grilled with fresh Feta. Had iced tea to drink, but waitress couldn't keep the type straight - kept refilling with wrong tea type -sometimes with lemon sometimes not.... Nice decor. Business cards were a bit odd with...

Our local contact told us this was the "go to" place when they wanted something yummy. They also told us that one would order the meat special and one the seafood special. So that's what we did. We started with the Caprese salad - with a twist - slivers of asparagus and artichoke hearts. Although we are purists with Caprese,... More

Great food, atmosphere, and wine! The BLT is great to share, and for dinner I recommend the salmon. If you bring in a bottle of your favorite local wine, there is no corkage fee.

This is one of my wife's favorite places to go for lunch. They have a really nice variety of fresh dishes offered at lunch from salads, sandwiches, burgers and hot entrees. We went here for Mother's Day brunch. My wife had a wonderful salad and I tried their most popular omelet. We enjoyed our food and the overall experience very... More
