During our recent, first time visit to Oxford, we were fortunate enough to enjoy a fabulous lunch at City Grocery. We had heard a lot about City Grocery, some it even fanatical, and it certainly lived up to the hype. Between the two of us, we had a pork chop sandwich and City Grocery's version of a hamburger. The pork... More

If you visit Oxford, MS, you must go to TCG for at minimum lunch. This place has wonderful servers, excellent prices on every menu item and I have tried them all, including the seasonal menu items, and if you enjoy cocktails, get after it. It gets packed so do not expect a quiet setting but do expect excellent food, the... More

We have been coming to City grocery for 12 years and 99.99% of the time I get the shrimp and grits. It is always on the menu and is always good. However this time redfish was the special and it was very good. Service was good. It was very quiet for Monday lunch. On the negative side it was rather... More

We went for lunch after moving our son into his dorm at Ole Miss. We felt like the goal of the restaurant was to be more than it really should be. The staff was very pretentious, not unfriendly, just not very accommodating. Telling guys to take their hats off on a hot summer day when basically everyone in there is... More

I am giving it a better than poor rating for the waiter and atmosphere, just food alone - poor. I think I just ordered wrong. I had the shrimp fettucine that was one of the specials that night. I would give it a 2nd chance, but without my husband. No way he will go back. His shrimp and grits were... More

The location, ambience, are great. The food and service are acceptable, but nothing to write home about.

City Grocery is great for special occasions. Management and servers assure that you will be paid special attention - on this occasions a candle in the dessert. Service is always attentive and professional. We had Whole Wheat Fettuccini and Roasted Duck. House Salad and a Caesar Salad preceded the entrees. Everything was beautifully presented and flavorful.

Hands down one of the best meals I have ever eaten. The spot is small- so DO make a reservation. The tables are crowded but I think it added to the overall feel of the place. We ate slow, pairing each course with wine. Started off with the soft shell crab special- melt in your mouth delicious. Next we had... More
