I think the men behind the counter make this place exceptional. Watching them make their signature shakes, rushing back and forth to grill the orders, and generally creating mayhem, is a floor show in itself. Don't expect a quiet leisurely experience; counter seating only. Learned a lot about how they prepare the foods (crushed ice in the shakes, mixing the... More

Don't be fooled by the looks when you walk in. It is a diner. But what a breakfast. Both my wife and I had the vegetable omelet. She had grits, I had the hashed browns. The omelet was huge and loaded with fresh vegetables. The has browns were tasty and expertly cooked. The grits we're also creamy and good. We... More

Whenever we go to New Orleans, we take the St. Charles trolley to the Garden District and get off right at the turn to visit Camellia Grill. You'll find locals and tourists alike waiting on line to grab a stool at the long counter that snakes the length of this old school diner. The waiters have their patter and put... More

The Camellia Grill is now called "The Grill". Same ownership. The meals are very good, very large and very reasonable priced. We split a bacon, ham, cheese and chili omelette. It was delicious and more than enough food. We can also recommend the gumbo as the best we tasted in NO. The staff is very friendly and it is a... More

Wonderful short-order establishment! The prices were resonable. The service was quick and server were friendly. I think this is now known as The Grill.

Many places in New Orleans are over priced. As a tourist,many times you are watching your coins. Took a trolley Car with many other members of my family and was introduced by my Brother in Law to this quaint place. Sat down and cracked open the menu and was extremely surprised! The food and prices were within the ballpark. The... More

I'm not much for restaurant breakfasts, but the Camellia grill served up one of the best I've had! My husband was thrilled that after 20 years, the Grill was relatively unchanged...with the same charismatic service and food. A very nostalgic place for him! On the first morning we ate there, I had the pancakes. Big deal, right? But they were... More

It is quiet an experience to step back in time at this awesome restaurant, to sit at the bar and place your order and watch the waiter shout your order out to the cooks in some special code, never pass a ticket to the cooks, and yet your order is prepared exactly as you ordered it. It is one of... More
