Our Team

Dedicated restaurant service

Being a Southern family business founded by two cousins from the state of South Carolina 25 years ago, the Griddling is a special place. But what truly makes it special are the people. The team. Every member of it, from a simple assistant cook and waiter to the chef and owners – we all do our job with an ever-burning passion in our heart!
