This place is a typical old diner style restaurant. The prices though have gone through the roof. On Fridays they offer a fried green tomato BLT sandwich which is like $12 w/o tip and no drink. The menu is entirely al a carte. English dogs over $2.75 each. Order two of them with fries and a drink and you've got... More

It would not be surprising if most prospecting patrons were intially turned away by the rather sinister facade of the Grill. Its steel door and high cut windows give an impression of a low-class dive bar. The dinning areas inside are sectioned off between a bar room and a dining room. The dining room is ringed with old cathod tube... More

Dave and family are always friendly. One of the few places we go where all 3 kids eat w/o complaint.

Today I was in Charleston getting my daughters haircut with my fiancé. While the cut was going on my fiancé said she was hungry and found this place on her phone. I decided to walk the two blocks to get some food for everyone. When I got in there I was immediately concerned. The counter had trash on it and... More

The grill is one of those places that serves comfort food and comfort atmosphere. If you like Navy Beans and cornbread, hot bologna sandwiches and meatloaf you will like the grill and fit right in. They have excellent hamburgers and you can get them rare which is a real joy for us that like them that way. It is a... More

Locally owned, I'm tired of chain restaurants. Great food, bar style menu, home cooked open kitchen. Nothing elaborate, but that's a good thing

Over priced greasy spoon with nothing going for it. It's in a questionable part of town, with no parking and over priced food and beer. Don't waste your time.
