We were looking for a good breakfast place in Tarpon Springs and chose Johnny Grits due to the good reviews. It did not disappoint!! I didn't even like grits before this (we're visiting from Chicago) but they were so amazing!! The four cheese ones were great. We actually went back the following morning. The second time we ordered the same... More

Server was great. 7 folks were in our party and everyone enjoyed their breakfast. They also know how to prepare Grits! DUH. Food was... More

Johnny Grits has a down home feel...I love the mason jar glasses. The food is down home delicious! My sister in law had the shrimp and grits, my brother in law had the eggs Benedict, my husband had a waffle, 2 over easy eggs with bacon and I opted for scrambled eggs, bacon and a biscuit. We thoroughly enjoyed our... More

My Grandson and I went there this Easter and both ordered Eggs Benedict. Me, traditional, he the chicken version. I asked if the EB was with Canadian bacon before ordering. What I got was a folded slice of fatty ham. I returned it and agreed to regular bacon instead. The hollandaise sauce was AWFUL. It had way way too much... More

If you are in the area, this is a must go to place for breakfast. The food was excellent, nice and hot. There was plenty of food and the price was very reasonable. If your a breakfast person this is place you want to visit at least once.

Pleasant waitress and the interior was nice. However, the boneless fried chicken was the absolute worst, very dry and tasteless. I was hesitant to order "boneless" fried chicken in the first place and should have followed my instincts, it did not work at all! When the waitress asked how is everything, I noted the chicken was barely edible. She offered... More
