Founded in 1999, the original Grumpy’s was a dream of a U.S. Navy cook, known as “Chef Grumpy: The Bad Mood Dude.” After retiring, the original “Grumpy” decided to take a leap of faith and continue to serve his community in a different facet. Over the past 22 years, Grumpy’s Restaurant has kept its commitment to excellent home-style cooking, attention to detail, sweet Southern hospitality and serving a hungry-person’s portion at a working-class price.
