Had a 35 minute wait at 11:00 Saturday brunch but worth the wait. Our group of 5 had great shrimp and grits, great grits/eggs/bacon and fantastic eggs benedict and okay pancakes. Small parking lot plus street side parking. Pricing moderate plus.

No reservations at Hominy Grill. Arrived 20 minutes before they opened and there was already line outside to get in! Had the Charleston Nasty Chicken which was awesome and the Salmon Potato Cakes - was also great - Well worth the visit. When we left left, the line was down the street. Quick friendly service and great breakfast!

I am sure Hominy is great all day everyday. I can only attest to the breakfast. It is the best in America. The best breakfast ANYWHERE.

Hominy is a laid back casual place. We were seated promptly and our waitress was attentive. We started with the she crab soup, which was absolutely delicious. For entrees we had the shrimp and grits and the Charleston nasty biscuit. The grits were tasty and creamy and the shrimp was marinated well. The biscuit was also very good with breaded... More

This was a very nice lunch. The restaurant does not start serving lunch until 11:30 and I arrived at 11:05. They wanted me to order breakfast, but since I had already had this earlier, I was determined to have lunch. I waited at the table until they could do a lunch order. I especially love chicken livers and it is... More

Overall, this experience was terrific. The place is spotless, the staff is beyond helpful, and the food was really excellent. Their specialty, The Charleston Nasty was outstanding!!! Wish we had time to try them for lunch or dinner. Can't go wrong with this place!

Every time I've been here it's been for brunch and every time there's been a big line on the sidewalk. Lucky for me, I live right around the block, so I can kind of scope it out to see when a good time is to go. They're known for their Charleston nasty, which is biscuits with fried chicken on them...

I have eaten hear probably over 50 times and my favorite menu item, squash casserole, is now off the menu. Every time we come to Charleston we would come here. Maybe not now
