I have been to Grit's 3-5 times a month for the past 7-8 years...the food is wonderful and rivals many higher end restaurants in the Macon area WITH ONE EXCEPTION. Grit's doesn't do a great job with a packed house. My family and I went for Valentine's day...5:30 reservations on a Saturday night. The apps came out promptly as did the salads...within 40 minutes my son's chicken finger entrees were in front of them...BUT this night was about my wife...30 minutes later neither she nor I had our entrees. People that had arrived much later than we did were enjoying their meals...This has happened sporadically over the years at Grit's. For the price of each meal (the kid's meal is $5.75, the sweet tea is $2.49, and entrees range from $20-$40) the patience one has for foul-ups like this is thin. We notified our waitress of our desire to leave and she promptly brought us our check...with a gift certificate(as if we'd consider coming here again any time soon). Most small restaurants would send out the owner/chef etc to at least apologize, but not this one. What a shame. Try Grit's for lunch or try it for dinner Tuesday - Thursday, but try it on the weekend and it's going to be the flip of a coin whether you get fed or fed up.
