Oxford Grillehouse is a casual fine dining restaurant on the corner of the Oxford, Mississippi Square. It is hands down one of the best restaurants in town. Oxford Grillehouse tries to create an atmosphere that gives a “nod towards the past” and unique experience to guests. The restaurant is open six days a week (Tuesday-Sunday) and serves brunch on Sundays. With their delicious food, it is easy to see why Oxford Grillehouse is one of the busiest restaurants in town.
Why We Went
I was in Oxford for my friend Rachael’s birthday. Joined by her friend, Hannah, we decided Oxford Grillehouse brunch was the perfect way to celebrate!
What We Had
I opted for chicken and waffles on a stick, served with maple syrup, while Hannah ordered the sausage and cream cheese casserole, and Rachael had the Chocolate chip waffle sticks. Most items on the menu come with two sides. Other brunch options are eggs benedict, andouille and tomato gravy smothered biscuits, and the Southern favorite, shrimp and grits.
The Boom Boom Asian sweet chile sauce is awesome! During brunch, it comes on a chicken sandwich but Boom Boom Shrimp are available for dinner. Gouda bacon macaroni balls are another noteworthy dinner appetizer.
Best Part of the Meal
Oxford Grillehouse describes their sides as “craveable” and I agree. Brunch sides include cheddar grits, parmesan french fries, smashed potatoes with gravy, turnip greens, as well as traditional staples such as bacon, eggs, and fruit. Dinner sides are even more mouthwatering, with choices such as chargrilled asparagus with béarnaise, sweet creamed spinach, black eyed pea jambalaya, smoked gouda mac and cheese, and fried green tomatoes.
There is a build your own Bloody Mary and Mimosa bar available on Sundays. Your server will bring you a glass with the alcohol in it, and you go and customize your drink. I think it is a great idea and seems to be very popular.
What Needs Improvement
Oxford Grillehouse’s service is hit or miss. Some servers are wonderful and go above and beyond to make sure that guests have a great experience, but others are just okay. Also, the seating is cramped (especially if you sit along the main aisle when the restaurant is busy).
