I've been here for brunch and dinner. Both times, it was great! Super fast service, tasty food. Lots of options for vegetarians, and just generally a wide variety of food for any mood. I also like the eclectic décor inside.

Ordered biscuits and gravy, bacon, home fries and ice tea along with 2 other meals and drinks. Total price $42.00. Homestyle food. Gets busy if you get there late. Would return if in the area again.

Ate breakfast here with my daughter. We were seated right away. We were greeted warmly. Restaurant was very clean and neat. They have an extensive menu. Loved the Cajun home fries. Will be going back to try one of their omelets!

We got a late start to the day so we decided to have a little brunch. We look around and decided to give Grumpy's a try. I'm glad we did. The menus selection is quite large and seems to have a bit for all. I...More

They have a small parking lot next to the building. Most of the time you can find parking there but sometimes if it is really busy you may have to street park.
