Grannie’s for breakfast did not disappoint. When we arrived they made us feel right at home and seated us immediately. The person who seated us poured our coffee and it just got better from there. We ordered and it seemed like our breakfast was served...immediately! We couldn’t believe how fast it appeared. A Grannie breakfast and a ham and cheese omelet were hot. Grits were prepared perfectly. Even the toast was hot! Price was reasonable. Full breakfast for under $10.00 each. Definitely recommend Grannies for breakfast!More

Very casual. Basic good food. My husband always orders chicken livers, and he was not disappointed. He is still raving about them. I think the cucumber salad was just sliced cucumbers in Italian dressing, but it was tasty. Not fancy but good.

The Locals eat here, why? Because the food is good, and the prices and the service is too!! I’ve lived in Crystal River for almost 43 years and Grannies fish sandwich is outstanding…out the door for $10.06. As long as they’re open for business, I’ll...be patronizing them.More

Our large group of 13 was accommodated quickly in spite of the crowd. Service was quick and friendly, and the food was delicious, country cooking.

Grannies is a gem. Right off the main road, the restaurant is hard to miss and parking is a breeze. There will probably be a line, but it’s worth the wait. First, let’s get something straight. You won’t find better biscuits and gravy in town....Having said that, everything else we ordered was fantastic as well. The all you can eat fish and shrimp offerings were delicious and we got our moneys worth. The bread pudding was a great addition to the feast. Our waitress was exactly what you would expect from a country diner: no-nonsense, super friendly with a dose of homegrown humor. Check out the board when you visit. It’s got so many delicious options on it you’ll wish you had more meals on your trip so you could try to fit them all in. Do yourself a favor. Don’t miss Grannie’s. You’ll thank me. Next time we come to see the beautiful Manatees, we might just eat all of our meals there.More

We ate at Grannies multiple time while staying in Crystal River for the week. The food was fast and fresh and better than the hotel (Plantation on Crystal River)! It's only a half-mile from the hotel and way cheaper and better!! The only problem is...you do feel rushed while you eat - the check arrives before you've barely eaten two bites of your food, plus the line of hungry on-lookers makes you feel like you have to eat-and-run!More

Only restaurant that we visited for our 14 day trip that cooks as close as my wife’s breakfast! Excellent biscuits and gravy, eggs were cooked spot on perfect and grits were rich and creamy! I would eat here weekly if I lived closer!

We ate here on a recent trip to Crystal River and the surrounding areas. Restaurant is located right on Highway 19. Food and service were outstanding. Honestly we were both unable to finish our portions and took the rest back to our hotel. Highly recommend

Absolutely great breakfasts and reasonable prices!! Even though this place was busy, the waitresses take care of you immediately and food comes out when it should. I am not a grits person but I enjoyed them so much, I had them again the next day....Everyone had a little something different and all of it was great. Nothing left on anyone's plate! I can't say enough about this place but we highly recommend it!More

We visited Grannies on Sunday for lunch. It was very crowded with a wait, but boy was it worth it! My husband and I both got breakfast. Both orders were phenomenal! Biscuits outstanding, grits so delicious..everything was perfection. We got dessert..homemade bread pudding with whipped...cream. To die for! All the lunch food looked wonderful. We are going back for lunch tomorrow as we go home. It is THAT good!More
