Eric’s Grille is a casual spot that’s found along a busy and more commercial section of central Southport, and which is known for classic American fare, home cooking, and a wonderfully friendly atmosphere. Serving up breakfast and lunch items that are family-friendly and familiar to traditional palettes, this eatery represents down home hospitality at its best.
The interior is simple with a dose of a diner atmosphere, which works well with the classic American fare that’s served on disposable plates. Diners shouldn’t be fooled by this no-frills environment, however, as both the service and the food is highly acclaimed among locals and frequent visitors alike. For breakfast, patrons can peruse a full menu which includes breakfast sandwiches and egg-centric plates, pancakes, omelets, and southern classics like biscuits and gravy and smoked sausages. For lunch, the menu changes to more fast-food style selections, which includes hand-pattied burgers, BBQ, hot dogs, BLTs, and plenty of French fries, cole slaw, and chili to go around. It’s simple cuisine to be sure, but it’s done well, and will appeal to any Southport visitor who’s craving a quick but filling bite before embarking on a morning or afternoon of town-wide explorations. Combined with lots of hospitality, Eric’s Grille is the cure for the common fast food or breakfast joint.
