For nearly a century the Crystal Grill has been a favorite with residents of Greenwood. It's where they gather to catch up on local news and gossip and tuck into some of the best southern-style diner food around. You can get a classic meat-and-three, but Jane and Michael say go for the cheesy Shrimp and Crab Newberg, Delta Tamales, and quirky pear salad. But save room for dessert. It's included in the price of your meal and the towering meringue pies are enough to make you weep! Chocolate and coconut are the house specialties, but the Sterns say the cool and creamy Lemon Ice Box Pie is the one to not miss.
