Delicious Lunch on the Square

City Grocery is such a cool place and the food is top notch. We walked in a little after 1PM and were seated right up front at the window, great for people watching. The special sandwich that day was a buffalo oyster po-boy and my husband couldn't resist. I tried the chicken salad sandwich. Both... read more

If your looking for the location in town where the locals eat, this is it... easily the best food in town and reasonably priced to boot.

Had the trout and it was excellent. I couldn't believe how great it tasted. There are many other items on the Menu but I may have to go to therapy to get me past the trout.

The roasted cauliflower appetizer was amazing! We also had the hanger steak, Caesar salad & roasted snapper special. I would definitely recommend.

I travel to Oxford for business about once a month. There are several great choices in the Square but City Grocery is in a class of its own. I highly recommend.

Great atmosphere and southern food w a decidedly modern twist. I had the flounder w wilted spinach garnished with farrow and pickled okra...oh my!!!!! As if dinner wasn't amazing enough, the chocolate composition with carmelized pretzels was just as amazing! I wish the wine list was a bit bigger, but it won't stop me from returning again and again:)

Ate here with friends and had a really enjoyable meal. Everyone had different items and everyone enjoyed their selection...but I probably liked mine least...I had shrimp and grits and the sauce had something in it I didn't care for...I think it just wasn't to my taste. The service was great and would definitely go back...I would just make another selection.

The Brussels sprouts are the best I have ever had our server actually went... More

This was our 3rd trip to Oxford 2nd trip to the "City Grocery" The food is constant and worth the 280 miles we had to go out of our way to try this eatery. Everything is good...you'll go home wanting to try and recreate these meals.

I've been to City Grocery a couple of times before and I am always pleased with the meal. I had a grilled fruit with brie appetizer that I could have easily made a meal out of . My friend had fried okra (full spears). I'd never had fried okra so she let me try one. Let me just say I... More
