The Grille

4736 Main Street, Shallotte, NC
Improve this listing
Ranked #15 of 41 restaurants in Shallotte
Cuisines: American, Seafood, Eclectic
Description: This is a wonderful little restaurant (in a gas station behind Naber Dodge!) of all places! The chef (Sal) left a larger restaurant to go out on his own and he is clearly going to do very well. He makes the best shrimp and grits we've ever had, she crab soup, shrimp bisque, chicken salad, pizza's, homemade potato chips, homemade tortilla chips, etc. Open for breakfast and lunch. He also runs a catering business. Style is kind of local and simple but with a gourmet touch! Wonderful.

I went to eat here since I heard great things about The Grille's shrimp and grits. As I was walking into the restaurant, the sanitation rating was a B. I left without eating due to the rating.

It had been a few months since last visiting The Grill so we tried it again last Saturday. Unfortunately, our experience was not good. It started with noticing the place really dirty and unorganized. Plus it was raining outside and dripping on our table. After placing our order the wait was 45 minutes to get the food. I had my... More

The food was excellant. Homemade fries and chips which I love !! I had and italian sub and it was great. I would suggest the wait staff -- you should come back to the table to see how your meal is or to see if you need anything else. Otherwise food was great and we will go back when in... More

Went to eat lunch a couple of days ago and all I ordered was a grilled chicken sandwich an order of fries and water. I thought the fries came with it but come to find out it was extra although the menu said it came with it. None the less it was $9.59. Whew that was expensive. Will not go... More

We found The Grille in a terrible thunderstorm, looking for a quick carry-out lunch. The servers are very friendly, and we were made welcome. Our food was prepared freshly, and honestly, it was the best restaurant seafood that we had during a week on the Brunswick coast ! The flounder and shrimp were very lightly breaded with a corn based... More

I got an egg sandwich on wheat with mayo...be sure and tell them if you want it scrambled, because it was a fried egg. Same thing on the ham and egg biscuit...fried egg. Which was still a good sandwich and biscuit.

You have to ask and ask again for anything you want, (extra ice, condiments, etc.). Long wait times for food.

The only reason I'm not giving this restaurant a 5 is because it is located in an old Hardy's restaurant. Needs a little something in the dining room. BUT the food is most amazing! I've had she-crab soup from Baltimore to Charleston. A few were exceptional. NONE of them were as good as this soup. I couldn't believe our luck... More

This is the best place in town for lunch. Very good menu for sandwiches and daily specials. Service is good, but the atmosphere is more like a diner. They also make the best bacon egg & cheese around.
