To begin your Grill Marks experience, start off with the Slider Trio: Pimento & Bleu, Crimini & Swiss, and Jalapeno & Pepper-Jack. Or if you and your party would like an array of appetizers go for the $8.99 “Three Way” option that allows you to enjoy pick any three of these apps: Skinny Fries, Fat Fries, Sweet Potato Fries, White Truffle Parmesan Fries, Bleu & Pimento Cheese Fries, Fried Pickles, Fried Green Tomatoes, Onion Rings, White Truffle Parmesan Chips, or Bacon and Bleu Chips w/ cracked pepper.

Certified Angus BeefNext comes the Burgers and UnBurgers. All Grill Marks burgers are freshly ground from a custom blend of only the finest 100% Certified Angus Beef. Try the Hot Mess Burger, which includes two beef patties, a grilled hot dog, chili, cheddar, swiss, American applewood smoked bacon, onion straws, fried pickle, lettuce, and tomato. We’d love to see someone try to take a bite out of that monster! Or try the Hawaiian Punch burger: grilled pineapple, bacon, pepper jack cheese, jalapeño pesto, lettuce, and tomato. Let’s get tropical! Choose from over ten burgers – ALL #mouthwatering…you can’t go wrong.

Not into Beef? Grill Marks also has amazing veggie burgers, turkey burgers, fresh salmon, and marinated chicken sandwiches! Order the Heavenly Veggie, which is Grill Marks’ special blend of roasted veggies, black beans, herbs, and spices combined into a mouth-watering patty with pepper jack cheese, jalapeño pesto, lettuce, and tomato. The Foghorn Leghorn Game Clucker is also amazing, featuring grilled chicken breast, avocado, applewood smoked bacon, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, and chipotle aioli.

Halloween FreakshakeFollow that Mouthwatering Burger with a Sweet Treat! You simply can’t leave Grill Marks until you’ve ordered dessert – it’s THAT good! We recommend The Tower, which is a bed of brownies with a mattress of ice cream, topped with a hard chocolate shell and pretzel rods. Or if you want to share, order the Sundae Fundae, which is Grill Marks MEGA dessert. You’ll love very large spin on a classic favorite!

They have a large variety of desserts and drinks. From Floats, Marks Famous Milkshakes, Spiked Floats, Shaketails (milkshakes minus the milk. Add liquor!), Beer Shakes (spun with homemade vanilla ice cream) to Freakshakes the possibilities seem to be endless. So whether you feel like a brownie or a beer milkshake you are in the right place.

Grill Marks has even crafted a special FreakShake in the spirit of Halloween. Wow! It is a nerds shake topped with ice cream and green whipped cream. They smothered it with monster gummies, oreoes, sprinkles, then drizzled with chocolate and strawberry puree and topped with a creepy gummy EYEBALL! Ask your server about it today.

Grill Marks is also a favorite brunch spot. They serve brunch on Saturdays & Sundays from 11am – 3pm. It’s the perfect chance to try out their Ultimate Bloody Mary (pictured on left below) or a yummy Benedict burger with a couple of Bellini’s! You just can’t go wrong when given those two choices.

This past Thursday I ate at Grill Marks with my boyfriend for the first time and LOVED it. I had a foster puppy with me and they have a wonderful “outdoor dining” area, though I was still “in” the restaurant which was neat. From where I was sitting I could see the moon in the sky and a few tables over Governor Nikki Haley was dining too.  I felt like it was a very relaxed atmosphere and our waitress was great too. I ordered from their special menu for Restaurant Week Columbia – get 3 for $15! I enjoyed their homemade Chocolate Milk shake, delicious BCB burger, and a side of skinny fries. And oh my goodness – I was NOT disappointed. They had mayo, ketchup, and mustard on the table, so my burger was messy and amazing! My boyfriend did not order off the special menu for Restaurant Week and ended up with a generous side of onion rings (we devoured them together!) and their Hawaiian Punch Burger – Applewood Smoked bacon, pepper-jack cheese, grilled pineapple, jalapeño pesto, lettuce, & tomato. The onion rings tasted really good to me and I liked dipping them in the sauce that was served with them. Our foster pup slept under my chair the entire time and enjoyed the bowl of water they brought out for her. They also sell dog treats (Grill Barks) that a dog shouldn’t have to go without;) It was a great night and we enjoyed walking along Gervais Street after our meal. View the special menu that I ordered off of here. Officially a fan of Grill Marks!! Enjoy, Foodies!
