We spent the weekend in Murphy's for a friend's birthday celebration. Our first morning there we stumbled into Grounds for breakfast. We were seated right away and had a fantastic breakfast. There is patio seating or in door seating available. It turned out our friend's birthday celebration was held at Grounds that night for a large group on the patio.... More

My wife and I had breakfast, and dinner at the Grounds restaurant. The breakfast was very good, and the staff was excellent. So we decided to have dinner. The food again was very good, but the staff didn't handle our complaint. There was a group seated next to us celebrating a birthday. The sad thing was that the drunk birthday... More

Smaller menu with everything great on it. I had the BLT and it was really good, but my boyfriend had the burrito... AMAZING. He won that lunch for sure! It's a wet burrito with an enchilada/ mile tasting sauce... Get a side of chips with it and be in fat girl heaven! Would go back again!

This restuarant had great food. After going to a couple wine tasting places, grounds was a great spot to get some food. It has an easy location on the strip, parking on the side of the road. Also had restrooms and outdoor seating for customers. Would recommend to anyone in the area, smalls groups would be better.

We enjoyed a fun aunts and cousins breakfast at Grounds. Several of us enjoyed the bacon waffle. All the food was good. Our server was very helpful accommodating all the various family groups!

We visited "Grounds" in the midst of the Sunday lunch rush and still received fast, friendly service. The facility is simple, with outside seating available. The Greek sandwich was full of flavor on toasted, garlic infused sourdough, with feta cheese, cucumbers, tomatoes and olives. My friends ordered the vegetarian burger and the BLT. The fries that came with the burger... More

Their calamari is light and tender as air--I want to eat it every day. Love this place. I've been for dinner and lunch--but from what I've heard, breakfast is the star. We really enjoyed our dinner, and lunch was good but not killer. The patio in the back is pretty. We'll be back.

Thank ThatTravelGirlSays
