Brunch on Sunday morning was lovely. Atmosphere is low key and welcome. Super authentic feel. The brunch menu is a successful series of tweaks on old favorites. My husband had the eggs Sardou which consist of sautéed spinach and grill artichoke with fried shrimp, topped with traditional poached egg and a variation on hollandaise. The base was a thinner grilled... More

On days when not crowded pleasant setting (unpleasant din if crowded); food is reliably good but ask server in order to dodge too-hot pepper dishes; food ranges from exceptionally good to middling. Prices on the high side but nearly always worth it.

Cioppino appetizer with a sauce worth eating with a spoon, shrimp and grits entree, and pan roasted half chicken served w/ a tongue tingling sauce and roasted brussel sprouts . Professional wait staff and a fine wine list added to the evening. I highly recommend this... More

Wonderful dinner with my wife at this courthouse square restaurant in downtown Oxford. The atmosphere is very warm and classic. Our server was well-versed on the menu items and extremely friendly. She made the dinner even better. Our entrees were wonderful. Highly recommend the pan-seared trout.

We had a great dinner with good drinks/food. I wish the service was a bit more polished at this price point. I understand Oxford is a college town, but the management should work with their staff a little more.

AMAZING shrimp and grits--best I've ever had! Great atmosphere here too and you can reserve thru OpenTable which is convenient. Their dining room is intimate, so reservations are highly recommended.

My wife and I ate here for lunch on a Saturday. I had the roast beef po boy, and she had the grilled snapper. Both tasted great. Service was prompt and friendly.

City Grocery was a really cute space and service was just fine. There were four of us so we got to try a lot of different things. The salads were exceptional. Our bibb lettuce salad was fresh, crisp, and perfectly dressed with the most delicious dressing I've ever had. The root vegetable salad was gorgeous as well as tasty. The... More

The food was ok but way overpriced. The "Award winning Chef" must have paid for the award because I could have gotten better food from an Outback Steakhouse. I won't be returning
