A new restaurant that focuses on home-style, table dining has opened in Greenbrier.


Granny’s Brier Patch opened its doors in November at 2577 Highway 41 S, located at the former site of Michelle’s Palace.


With a meat-and-three style menu, Granny’s Brier Patch is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. 


For early risers, guests can enjoy eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, omelets, biscuits and gravy, French toast and even a rib eye, to name a few. 


For lunch and dinner, some choices include catfish, pulled pork or chicken, ribs, meatloaf, stuffed potatoes and 16 side items to take your pick from. 


A host of appetizers, sandwiches and burgers are also available.


The average price of a lunch hour meat-and-three runs $7.75, with dinner at $10.99.


Dine-in hours run 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday, Thursday, and Fridays. Doors are open from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sundays.

Take-out is also available.


“Our mission is to ensure every guest has an exceptional dining experience in a wholesome, family-friendly environment. That’s what drives everything we do here,” said Robert Davis, who owns the establishment alongside his wife, Marcia.


Davis relocated from Florida to Greenbrier with his family around a year ago because of his work in the healthcare industry. However, he began looking for a project not so long after retiring. 


That ended up being Granny’s, he said.


Davis, while not having previous work experience in the restaurant business, noted that the healthcare industry and dining are “parallel” in that they are both service-oriented. 


“Both are dedicated to delivering a quality service,” Davis added.


That similarity, plus his family’s passion to serve others and a desire to connect with the local community motivated Davis and his family to transition into the restaurant businesses.


In preparation for Granny’s Brier Patch, Davis spent time at Michelle’s Palace busing tables — prior to buying the business — so he could hear comments and learn first-hand what the community was looking for.


Plus, he got some guidance from a relative who he describes as a seasoned restaurateur.


Now with a team of around 15 employees, which includes six chefs, Davis said Granny’s Brier Patch is staying very busy. They are humbled by the opportunity to serve locally and are committed to their mission of ensuring customers have a wonderful dining experience, he added. 


“We feel incredibly blessed by the unwavering support from the community,” said Davis. “We’ve been very busy. We have had no slow days.”
