City Grocery is a little pricey but the food is great and the atmosphere even better. Great place for a special date night. I would highly recommend it.

The best shrimp and grits in town! Has become more casual with time...but never fails with food or service.

Chef John Currence's great restaurant is located in The Square, the picturesque area of Oxford, MS. Conveniently located about a mile from campus, The Square has a variety of amazing gift shops, clothing stores and restaurants. I had a wonderful stew and house salad which went together great. My companion loved the Po'Boy! Lots to choose from. He has other... More

City Grocery was a dining experience. The ambience is wonderful, though a bit noisy. Service was exceptional and so was the food. Shrimp and grits is their signature dish and it did not disappoint. Good wine selection at reasonable prices. Treat yourself if you are in Oxford!

Friends and I ate at City Grocery on a busy Ole Miss football Saturday. Fortunately, we had a reservation!!! The whole town was packed in anticipation of the first Ole Miss home game of the season. I had the Grits and Grillades, my first time to even hear about this dish. Oh my! Cheese grits with a spicy cajun-y beef... More

This place never disappoints. All the restaurants in this group are outstanding. All of the items are fresh and most are local. If you are in Oxford this is a must!!

Worst waitress we experienced on our trip. I had the watermelon and steak salad. Steak was tough and I couldn't chew it. Everyone else had a nice meal.

The shrimp and grits were over spiced for our tastes, but still very good. I had two apps which I enjoyed greatly. The room is OK, dark with minimal decorations. The waitress was probably the best we have experienced in years. Good menu but $28 entrees.

This is a very elegant restaurant. The menu items are unique southern style but there is not a vast array of options. It's a great restaurant to try but probably not a restaurant I'd put on my list if I had limited time in Oxford.

Met friends for lunch and was thrilled with the food. I had shrimp and grits which were fabulous...just the right amount of spice and the creamy texture of the grits made a perfect dish! Others in my group had the special quail and sweet potato waffles. They were as pleased with their dishes as I was with mine. I will... More
