A perfect after-game spot for a light dinner and drinks with friends, everything was tasty, and they have a small bar area up top.

We went for a Sunday brunch and loved the food and Mimosa's. We had a reservation for 11:00 am (when it opens) and were the first ones in. It was not crowded at that time but I would probably recommend reservations if you plan to arrive closer to noon. I always prefer to sit outside but outside seating was no... More

One of my favorite meals, ever. Staff was friendly and had lots of suggestions about the menu. The food was superb. We took our mother for dinner here for her 70th birthday and it was worth every penny and then some. Definitely a must-do when you are in Oxford. Get reservations as far ahead as you can.

I have eaten here COUNTLESS times and it is always fresh, inviting, joyous, and delectable! Our waitress, Claire, had the daily menu memorized with both added features from her own palate as well as the chef's recommendations. I had the Panko grouper sandwich which was wonderful. The frites appetizers or as a side were great with the "Comeback" sauce. It's... More

Pleasant experience started with cocktail upstairs because restaurant opens at 6. Overall appearance looks fancier than it is, not in a bad way. Rustic where you see a lot of regulars, okay probably all regulars. Again, this was our top spot to try and wanted to see what all the buzz was about. Get right into the menu, all read... More

This is a fantastic place. Certainly one of the busiest places in Oxford, but somehow, even with no reservation, they seem to squeeze my party in with all due haste. Food is glorious.

In spring I had reviewed City Grocery unfavorably because of a pretty serious server error, but I am so glad to share that we have been back twice this fall for lunch and had exceptional lunches both times. Part of this is attributable to our long-time favorite server Jennifer who is thoroughly knowledgeable, professional, and a whole lot of fun.... More

Great lunch on a Memphis/Ole Miss Game Day. Although the Square was packed and so was this restaurant, the staff and southern charm of this place was fantastic. We arrived on a rare day when it was about 70 degrees with little humidity which makes this restaurant fantastic. You can see from the back, where we sat, clear through the... More

We have been coming to Oxford for several years now this was me and my wife's first visit. Our food did not disappoint; it was excellent. I got Bibb salad and Shrimp n grits. My wife got some Brussel sprouts and a hanger steak. The steak was amazing. I also had an amazing Bloody Mary. We then split some Rum... More
