Oval Park Grille is a warm neighborhood restaurant that local area residents can call their own. We provide a casual, inviting setting to enjoy Chef/Owner Todd Whitney's variety of different cuisines; from classics such as a wedge salad and crispy chicken wings, to local NC trout and pork entrees. OPG is a culmination of Chef Todd's years of working in a variety of restaurants from California to North Carolina. Staying as seasonal as possible in the produce used and sourcing from the farmers market the menu is #LOCALASHECK
