THE RUN DOWN

Grumpy’s Restaurant was born out of passion and love for bringing family and friends together over great diner food. Our commitment and mission are to deliver the highest quality dining experience at an affordable price for families everywhere. We will never waver on our commitment to excellent home-style cooking, attention-to-detail, sweet southern hospitality and serving a hungry-person’s portion at a working-class price. All while closing at 2:00PM, providing the ultimate family, work and life balance. The Grumpy’s Restaurant Franchise System offers a great opportunity to start your own business and be your own boss without the long hours and risks associated with starting a restaurant from scratch.

Grumpy’s Restaurant is a full-service American & Southern style diner developed and perfected since 1999. Our award-winning kitchen and decorated head chef, Grumpy serve both quality interpretations of American and Southern diner dishes along with daring and universally appealing new ventures of diner foods for: breakfast, lunch and brunch daily. Grumpy’s offers an array of daily and weekly chalk board specials, a variety of sandwiches, homemade soups, salads, signature coffee, fresh squeezed juices, homemade hot chocolate and desserts. Don’t forget about Grumpy, your favorite bad mood dude! Don’t worry, No One Leaves Grumpy!

Grumpy’s commitment to our customer’s experience, has built loyal followers and made Grumpy’s a beloved neighborhood spot.
