The breakfast menu is smaller than some...until you hear the list of daily breakfast specials. Then the creativity comes out. The cornbread was exceptional. The biscuits are tasty, and the sauces are delicious. Great place for authentic, well-prepared food.

The Big Nasty was Nasty.... The biscuit was a rock, chicken was hard and dry.... Collards tasted like they came out of a can....wasted time and money. The staff was nice.

My review is going to be the almost exact opposite of the last one! The wait in the sun was expected and, for a Brit, a pleasant way to start the morning. There is a water dispenser on the patio and some shade available to wait in. The wait augered well - surely, I thought, it is a sign of... More

We waited an hour in the hot sun on a patio with very little shade. The line to get drinks on the patio was long and the server very slow. By the time we were seated we were almost too hot to think about eating. The She Crab soup was great, the shrimp & grits the worst any of us... More

Took a long walk with a friend while visiting. Sausage was amazing and so was the bacon. I am a breakfast nut!!!! Very small portion size in comparison to what most places serve for breakfast.

This was our second visit to Hominy Grill. My husband and son ordered the same dish they had enjoyed two years ago on another visit to Charleston. The dish was much less enjoyable than the same dish two years ago. The meat I ordered arrived at the table practically raw with bloody juice all over the plate. It was returned... More

Stopped by Hominy Grill as a "Last Hoorah" dinner on the final night of our vacation to Folly Beach/Charleston. Upon pulling up to the restaurant (5:30 PM Saturday) I was immediately excited to see they have their own private parking lot and there was space available for us. The hostesses out front greeted us, and while we waited for our... More

There were five adults in our party. We were renting a nice house for the week just a block away, and seen all of the advertisements for it, so we gave it a go. Let me tell you, I'm a combat veteran and have eaten my fair share of "grody grub" in some vile locations, and about the only difference... More

One reason we chose this place is that they had gluten-free pancakes on their menu as I'm gluten-free. I was disappointed to learn that they did not actually have them as I was looking forward to something else for breakfast besides eggs. Anyway, they were able to make the shrimp and grits gluten-free for me so that worked. My meal... More

The wait here is long for brunch at the weekend and the patio is hot ! Drinks are available for the long wait. Had a nice brunch and I had the shrimp salad which was beautiful - but not sure I would wait in line every weekend if I was lucky enough to live in Charleston ! Good food and... More
