Nostalgic atmosphere !!

This place is great and so is the food ! The waitresses are friendly as well. I especially love the décor with old photos of what McDonough used to looked like. My favorite is the sweet potato soufflé !!! Yummy !! And yes, if it’s ready in the morning I will have some of that for breakfast. If... read more

Gritz is a family style restaurant (not buffet and no unruly kids running around). The clientele the day we went (Sunday lunch) was mostly older couples and couples with friends, younger couples, girlfriends getting together. There was not an unruly child in the place. Why come to Gritz? It's the food stupid! Great Southern cooking. The menu has every Southern... More

This restaurant is in an old building on the square in McDonough, Ga and is nicely decorated with pictures of McDonough from the 30s and 40s. The waitresses are very friendly and helpful with your order. The menu has a great selection of sandwiches and country-styled veggies. Sounds great, right? Everything seemed okay until I walked toward the kitchen on... More

Visited on a weekend morning. Husband called ahead to make sure if there was a long wait and we were seated after 11, we would still be able to order breakfast. He was told yes and offered no further details. We went and waited and were finally seated just before 11 and were given breakfast menus. Everyone looked at the... More

We apologize for your experience but think there was some miscommunication going on. We serve cooked-to-order breakfast all day and at 11am, while transitioning into lunch on busy weekends, it can take a little longer for your breakfast order-but never 45 minutes! We hope you will give us another try. We strive to give our customers the best product and... More

Their breakfast is one of the best; the service is good and I would recommend them. Although the ambiance is not spectacular, the food is good.

We stopped here for lunch one week day and really enjoyed our meal. The wait staff are always friendly and the restaurant is very clean. We live to come here!

We ventured off 75 to find this place. We were making road trip to Nashville and wanted home style breakfast and the reviews indicated this was the place. Not. Poor quality, lots of grease and over priced given lackluster quality of food. Country style ham was more fat than ham, and someone in kitchen needs lesson in biscuit makin'. Bottom... More

We have visited Gritz on more than one occasion with a wide variety of outcomes.... That said isn't consistent food and service a hallmark of a decent restaurant. To be fair the service is almost always on point fast friendly .... The food and coffee is as we have learned from at least 10 visits in the past 30 days... More
