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

We dined here for our daughter's birthday and were so pleased with the service and the quality. Everything was outstanding and the fried green tomato appetizer was outstanding. Shrimp and grits are not to be missed! Service was prompt and efficient without being bothersome. We will definitely return to this spot on our next visit to Oxford.

I was here in February of 2015 on a busy Saturday night and had a great meal. I made a reservation a week in advance and I was a bit concerned to have to wait to be seated despite several empty tables?- did they not have enough servers? Our waiter was also serving 4 other tables and so our service... More

We went here for their Sunday brunch which is a limited menu. Our guest had the veal special and pronounced it "excellent," but my wife and I were not so lucky. She ordered the biscuits and gravy which was so salty, she did not finish it. She also ordered the barley, fruit, and cream which she said was good. I... More

City Grocery has been in Oxford for a couple of decades. It, and its owner/chef have won several important awards - and it shows. From the setting, to the music, and the service - not to mention the food and its presentation - this is a five star place. We had black pepper roasted cauliflower, gazpacho with a dollop of...

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:)
