I came here SPECIFICALLY for the "nasty" biscuit and it did not disappoint! The fried chicken was so juicy, biscuits soft and flavorful, but the sausage gravy on top is what did it for me. YUM YUM YUM. We also got a side of hash browns to split because we didn't think the sandwiches would fill us, but we were... More

One of my personal favorite places in Charleston. Try the big nasty it's wonderful. Last time there had the icebox pie. Never had a bad meal. Be forwarded its a smaller establishment so you may have a wait. Friendly staff. And parking is a hit or miss might have a small walk. But dont let either one stop you.

We had an excellent meal at Hominy Grill. Delicious Southern regional cooking. I enjoyed almost everything. But I would recommend this restaurant if you're in the Charleston area.

The wait is long but we are prepared for that. The Bloody Mary's from the window make it ok! Everything is always great! Food and service make us come back over and over again.

I had dinner there with friends after a day of sightseeing in Charleston. They live in the neighborhood and raved about this place. It was ok and service was prompt and the food was good. Great neighborhood feel, very informal. The boiled peanuts are an acquired taste.

I try to stop in for lunch every time I'm in the area. The food is good and consistent. Sometimes the wait isn't worth it, but if you time it right I would definitely recommend stopping by.

The Hominy Grill is one of the best places I have every eaten at. There is not a dish on the menu that I would not recommend to anyone. Call for reservations as the place is always packed.

We arrived around 20 minutes before they were to close and they still welcomed us warmly. The restaurant was quaint and welcoming with a nice patio outside. Service was excellent and food delicious. Had the chicken livers, and my family had the triggerfish, catfish, and one of the daily soecials. Delicious!! A definite highlight of our trip to Charleston.

We ate here for breakfast twice and it was delicious both times. Great juice, coffee and I loved the pancakes and banana bread. My husband raved about the shrimp and grits. I only gave it four stars because it really is a bit expensive for a breakfast place, but other than that it has very tasty breakfasts.
