It depends who it comes from and who it's directed at.  In general it means level headed, not materialistic, hard working, etc.  But I have heard it used once by a guy who was just the opposite of down to earth and felt he said it as an insult.

It means their head isn't in the clouds. They are focused on what needs to get done here and now. They are very practical and aren't dreamers.

I just heard it as an insult for the very first time and the hair salon, it made me feel profoundly sorry for the person who used it as such. I'm not sure why.
