Ward’s Grill

Entering Ward’s Grill is like taking a step back in time. The authentic atmosphere conveys a feeling of true 1950s charm, and our delicious food get excellent reviews from customers on a regular basis.

Ever since Roy Ward and his eldest son Jack convinced Lola Thompson Ward to add the grill to Thompson’s Store in the late ‘50s, many a homemade sausage biscuit and chili cheeseburger have been served to the residents and visitors of Saluda. For many years, the grill has been the town’s central gathering place for locals and tourists alike. The warmth and camaraderie of this classic venue make even first-time visits truly memorable.

Open Mon-Sat 7-3
