Description
Nationally acclaimed and locally beloved, Hominy Grill is a Charleston institution serving classic southern specialties that taste just like Grandma used to make (well, if Grandma had known how to ... Read more
cook, that is! But that’s another story). We don’t open any cans here; all is prepared from scratch with fresh, locally raised ingredients.

Local from Charleston, South Carolina

Very popular for brunch and known for their southern cuisine. Their grits and shrimp are fantastic. They also have excellent Bloody Mary's. Recommend for breakfast or brunch. Try to go early because a line generally forms on Saturday and Sunday morning.

Met all of our expectations. This restaurant has been featured on several tv episodes I'd seen and was worth the visit. We had cheesy shrimp and grits, several excellent vegetables and hummingbird cake.

Busy yet relaxed eatery dishing up Lowcountry classics in homey digs, also popular for its brunch.

Tastes like home without the dishes afterwards! Comforting when in the mood without having to cook yourself!

A trip to Charleston isn't complete until you make a stop at Hominy Grill and stuff your face with their incredible southern standards. What sets Hominy apart though is that it also puts a spin on classic recipes to give their menu a fresh, modern edge. I'm still dreaming about their farro salad with shredded brussel sprouts, pumpkin seeds, feta and an apple cider vinaigrette over grilled butternut squash medallions.

Tucked away by the medical university. Food is local and atmosphere is very casual, renovated barber shop.

Long line moves fast. Maybe because excellent bloody mary available while waiting.

Food was rich, carby, fatty food that tastes quite good. Vegans and healthy eaters would run screaming.

Proceed as an informer diner.

One of the best breakfast AND lunches I've ever had. The she crab soup is outstanding and definitely indulge in the Big Nasty. Don't forget to pick up one of their cookbooks.

Low country cooking at it's finest. A great place for lunch or dinner. I love the barbecue chicken sandwich. Or try the soft shell crab with baked cheese. Fully fattening and totally yummy.

Way over priced food and small portions. Standing in line for 2 hours, are you kidding me. You be better off to go to Jestines Kitchen on meeting street!

One of the best breakfast joint's in town. Hand's down worth the wait, make sure to have some of their grits!

This restaurant is one of the top recommendations when you ask about restaurants in Charleston. It is small, but also has an outdoor patio. The food was very good. Some notable menu items are their famed Shrimp & Grits and the Big Nasty Biscuit.

Mmm, she crab soup ... one of my favorite things about visiting South Carolina. And the Hominy Grill has my favorite in Charleston. The restaurant is just outside of the main tourist center of town, so it gets a mostly local crowd. Extremely reasonable priced, this is the place to come for all of the local delicacies: fried okra, fried green tomatoes, cornbread, catfish. Oh. I need to fly back to Charleston now.
