We actually ate here by accident. Thought we were eating at adjacent restaurant so once we got menus, just stayed put as we were feeling adventurous. The food was good, service good and we had a great table as we were traveling with dog. No one raved about there food but then no one had a bad meal either.

We've been here several times before and were always pleased. This time the fish was over cooked, veggies were undercooked, no one ever came by to see if we were satisfied, if we wanted another glass of wine or anything else except for bringing us the bill.

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...
