The Grey is committed to fair wage at all levels with a promise that, across all of our restaurants, no team member, in any position, earns less than $15 per hour. We have also been committed from the very beginning to providing health care benefits for all of our full-time employees, a 401-K, PTO and an empathetic work environment that provides our team with the peace of mind that allows them, in turn, to be committed to excellence in all facets of food, beverage, service and hospitality.

The attributes we value above all else are:

  • Team first
  • Mistakes make you better
  • A great sense of humor is priceless

Housed in a historic 1938 art deco Greyhound Bus Terminal in Downtown Savannah, The Grey is helmed by chef Mashama Bailey. Inspired by the richness of the Low Country she creates dishes that are deep, layered and soulful in its flavors. The influences of the city’s port allow a focus on European wines, Atlantic Trade liquors and warm hospitality to provide a complete experience for our guest.

At The Grey we seek leadership, passion and commitment to excellence above all else. Should you personify these qualities and those attributes necessary in a service environment, you should send us a resume.

You might be surprised by our willingness to be a bit unconventional.

The Grey is an equal opportunity employer and seeks quality individuals of the highest integrity above all else.

Part of The Grey

Bonded by a common viewpoint on what makes for delicious food, Johno Morisano and Chef Mashama Bailey partnered to build The Grey in Historic Downtown Savannah. Occupying a 1938 art deco Greyhound Bus Terminal that they painstakingly restored to its original luster, The Grey offers a food, wine and service experience that is simultaneously familiar and elevated. Bringing her personal take on Port City Southern food to a city of her youth allows Mashama to tap into all of her experiences to create dishes that are deep, layered, and soulful in their flavors. With a penchant for regional produce, seafood and meats, guests will find a melting pot of surprising and comforting tastes in all of Mashama’s cooking with something new revealed in each and every visit. A focus on European wines, Atlantic Trade liquors, and warm, old-world hospitality are the additional elements necessary to provide a complete experience for guests. The Grey continues the building’s long tradition of transporting people to a destination, but that destination is now one of elevated hospitality and intrinsic satisfaction.
