  • doodawday reviewWe ate at Hominy Grill last night and thought it was incredible. They have gotten a lot of favorable press from New York Times and all the big food magazines and, surprisingly enough, lives up to the hype! The menu is short and simple--totally unpretentious. Everything tasted really really fresh. The service was sweet and attentive. We would definitely go back!

  • Michael G.The Nasty Biscuit makes for the ultimate hangover cure. Start off with the banana bread. They had a fried pork chop special that rocked as well.

    55555 by Michael G.

  • Melanie W.Worth the hype. Can't wait to go back for lunch or dinner.

    55555 by Melanie W.

  • Toacca R.Try the shrimp bog. It is simply incredible. The shrimp and grits are great too, but the bog is better. Oh and yes start with the Big Nasty.

    55555 by Toacca R.

  • Pinar D.Definitely get the chocolate pudding! It's soooo good! You won't regret it! For the main course get the shrimp and grits or the nasty chicken biscuit! This place is amazing!

    55555 by Pinar D.

  • Lenny S.Order the grits or tomato pudding, signature dishes here!

    55555 by Lenny S.

  • Aleah SFood was good but not sure it earns the 9 rating for brunch food. "Ranch" that comes with fried green tomatoes was delish though!

    55555 by Ranu R.

  • Alexandria T.I don't see what all the hype is about. The food was okay, but not to the standards I hold for Charleston food. We had both the shrimp & grits, & the big nasty... I enjoyed "Poogans Porch"so much more

    33333 by Alexandria T.

  • The Tastes that Make the CityThe Maverick shrimp and grits are the best grits in Charleston, which is why it’s on our list of The Tastes That Make the City: Charleston.

    55555 by The Tastes that Make the City

  • AbA concise menu with delish breakfast options. Put their Huevos Racheros in your mouth. The dinner menu is another story altogether. Food was more salted than seasoned. If that's your pref, go for it

  • Jenna O.A great option for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Big nasty is worth it, but lighter options including fried green tomatoes solid too.

    55555 by Jenna O.

  • EaterEater National 38 member: This is a place worth returning to again and again to savor creamy she-crab soup laced with sherry, chicken bog (a kin of jambalaya), and gossamer coconut layer cake.

    55555 by Eater

  • LilyNasty biscuit is dope as are the hominy (as one might expect). Grab a bloody from the walk up window while you wait (there will be a wait).

    55555 by Talia R.

  • Nadia S.The shrimp and grits are not "amazing" as so many people claim. They must not be from the South. They're ok, but overpriced and I've had much better for cheaper. Shop around for Southern food a bit.

  • Carmen M.The chocolate pudding should be called dark chocolate pudding. It's enough for four people, but you'll eat for two. A few hazelnut pieces on top would perfect it

    55555 by Stephen B.

    55555 by Desiree S.

  • Jennifer D.Make sure to save room for the chocolate pudding. Oh.My.GOD. It's rich, dense (thicker than a "normal" pudding) & big enough to split. Homemade whipped cream is perfect-not too sweet.
