Located in the heart of downtown White Bluff, Salt and Pepper Grill, located at 4501 US Highway 70, is one of those places that makes you feel like you are home. It’s relaxing and always filled with friends, because, as the restaurant’s motto says, “there are no strangers, only friends you haven’t met yet.” 

Says one reviewer, “The owners, Chuck and Candi, are wonderful and we always feel appreciated when we eat there.” 

A well-loved restaurant, it draws not only locals, but people from all over Middle Tennessee. The food is homemade, the prices are a good value, and the décor is kitschy fun with all kinds of different salt and pepper shakers and a Napoleonic Yoda painting hanging on the wall.

Serving lunch and dinner, there is everything from breakfast for dinner to burgers to sandwiches to class homestyle comfort food. Oh, and don’t forget the dessert, like the decadent and yummy chocolate mousse cake or their famous carrot cake. There are also lots of specials, like their beloved meatloaf.

Offering lots of tasty appetizers, one of the favorites is the buffalo chicken dip that is bursting with big chunks of chicken. Other favorites are the Loaded Chili Nachos and the wings that come with a choice of five different sauces, including garlic parmesan, lemon pepper, buffalo, plain or Salt and Pepper’s own Kiss Me/Kick Me BBQ.  

Chili, baskets, quesadillas and sandwiches are popular for lunch, especially the Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato, the Fried Bologna and the Reuben when available. 

Popular dishes for dinner include their grilled salmon, pot roast, lasagna and Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo. They have recently added Shrimp and Grits, which has been embraced enthusiastically by diners.

Said one diner, “I love me some Salt and Pepper Grill! I always get the Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo and a side salad. If you haven’t tried it, get their Cajun Ranch Dressing. It’s awesome.” 

In the fall and winter, they add homemade soups to the menu, along with the chili that is always on the menu and is used as part of their nachos. 

Their kiddie menu offers multiple options including Chicken Tenders, Spaghetti or a Corn Dog. All Kids meals are $5.00.

With a full bar, Salt and Pepper Grill provides an extensive selection of beverages, including a beer selection that includes craft options, wine and a variety of cocktails. 

“Wow! I just ate some of the best salmon I’ve ever eaten,” said one reviewer, “and for this girl who’s lived a majority of her adult life in San Francisco, that’s saying a lot! I want to call this a hole- in-the-wall, but the scratch-made gourmet fare coming from the kitchen is worthy of a visit from Guy Fiery. Don’t tell anyone, but this unassuming place could double their prices and still pack the tables with appreciative diners.” 

Said another past diner, “For a very unassuming restaurant on the side of Highway 70 it has absolutely incredible food. The decor is very eclectic and the menu small but don’t let that stop you from enjoying every bite! We have tried most all with great enjoyment.” 

 Friday nights they offer live music. They also play the big games on their large screen televisions, and host Trivia Nights.
