A word from Gram & Dun
Gram & Dun is an American gastropub with culinarily-driven fare, paying special attention to pairing food with libations. It's a place "for the people" where we can relax and enjoy the neighborhood vibe while we test theories of food, drink and the evolution of good times. People need a place that calls to them when they find the time to relax, shrug off the day, and savor a meal that's unique and extraordinary; a place where they feel they belong. Our local owners and staff bring a unique, modern environment to this ideal Plaza location where we have revived the best patio in town, making Gram & Dun an enticing landmark for locals and visitors alike. In addition, Gram & Dun honors the traditional by bringing revered dishes to the forefront and adding our own special touch, and welcomes seasonality by adjusting to the natural changes our tastes succumb to as the year progresses, all in an effort to provide the best to patrons.

Diner Reviews
  • "Our family had friends visiting Kansas City for the first time this weekend and we decided to make dinner reservations at Gram and Dun. Our friends were very impressed. They thought the restaurant was beautiful and the food delicious. We tried several different items and all were great. One person said the pork chop was the very best he'd ever had. The sides of spatzel and a large tater tot were a hit, very tasty. We had hoped to sit out on the large patio but it was just too hot this weekend. Fortunately, the large windows make it almost feel as though you are outdoors anyway. Our one complaint is the noise level. I notice you don't allow for loud on the review, only "energetic". Loud is more accurate."

  • "I went on a Saturday night with some friends I hadn't seen in a long time. It was VERY loud in the restaurant and you couldn't really hear anything that the people on the other side of the table were saying. The food was great and the menu has a really nice variety, but next time I'm dining with a group and want to be able to hear, I'll go somewhere else."

  • "We gathered with family to celebrate a birthday. The food was fantastic, and the service was impeccable. Andrea provided the attention to our table and details for the menu that helped us select the just-right dishes. Asian Pig Wings started us off - delicious! The seasonal summer salad was so good that we requested an extra one to pass around so that everyone could sample it. Six different entrees were ordered. All were cooked to perfection. Don't forget the creamed brussels sprouts - great side! For dessert, we shared "Cracked Up" and "C Cup Parfait" - outstanding!"

  • "This was my first time @ G&D and I had only heard good things. I finally went Monday night and it did not disappoint! It was even better than I imagined. I do think this is for the 'foodie' and I really appreciated everything about the experience. It was perfect weather for patio dining and I will definitely be going back. I met a young chef at the bar who was in town for training and this was his 4th time eating at Gram & Dun in less than a week. That should say it all right there. Thank you!"

  • "Everything was great! First time visiting and everything that our server recommended was spectacular. Be sure to try the Burnt End Mac and Cheese! Had a blast reading all the comments in the book that was used as the folder for the check. Very unique idea!"

  • "The menu is out of the ordinary. I wish there were more healthy options. The food was good, although rather pricey for the quantity. The service was excellent! The outdoor dining area is incredible. We requested a quiet table and got it, so they really try to please the customer."

  • "We've been to Gram & Dunn twice. Both times we were extremely pleased with the experience. I had the pork shoulder the first time and boar the second. The accompanying starches and vegetables are just as good as the proteins. Our guests said the burger was outstanding as well. I don't think you could go wrong no matter what you select off the menu. We will be going back very soon."

  • "I love Gram and Dun. I have been there many times but had never taken my daughter. My husband and I decided to take her for a fun and fancy dinner. Cecilia, our waitress, was outstanding and very kind to my daughter. The food was delicious and the service was great. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "Three of us went there go a friend's birthday. From cocktails to apps to entrees and the desserts were innovative and for the most part delicious. The Pig Wings were amazing! The pork tenderloin and pork chops were also perfectly done. I had the catfish which was delicious, but slightly over cooked. Two of the three desserts were amazing! The C Cup had cardamom which didn't really work well for our tastes. Our server could use some more training. She almost seemed put out by our drink orders or the fact that we wanted dessert and was slow to bring drinks from the bar...I watched our first drink order sit for 10 minutes while she had vanished."

  • "If you like pork, which I do, this is a great place. Innovative menu for adventurous foodies."

  • "We had 4 different entrees. None boring or pedestrian, All were considered delicious by the group, as we traded bites. The service was friendly and attentive. We had a new server, I believe his name is Jamie. He did an excellent job."

  • "My friends took me to Gram and Dun to celebrate my retirement from teaching. It was a great choice! The wine list was extensive. The service was quite good, and the food was great! Several enjoyed the Blackened shrimp and grits, and I had the flank steak. I had a taste of the grits.. they were incredible! The beans on the steak were ok.. but the steak was tender and very good. Our favorite however.. was the Gram and Dun Bar for dessert.. Wow! If there was one thing I would have improved upon, it was where we were seated. The air conditioning vent was right at my feet.. and we froze! So, I had to move. Other than that, everything was great!"

  • "Went out with my wife on a biannual date. Loved the food, drinks, and service. Our server was Tara and she was fantastic! Pork shoulder, burnt end Mac and cheese, spatzle, tater tot, oatmeal cookie were all great. Can't wait to go back!"

  • "We ate here on a Saturday night. The weather was iffy, so we dined inside. If you have the chance to eat on the patio, do it; but the inside is lovely and we got a window table so we had the view. Started with the Smoking Dun cocktail and grilled rosemary sourdough. I had the jerk chicken and my companion had the shrimp and grits. Yum, yum, yum. Salad and soup were also good. Desserts were excellent-cracked up pie and PB&J pie (nightly special). Service was welcoming, friendly, but very professional. There is valet parking if that is important to you. It gets a little loud, so be warned, but don't let that stop you from going."

  • "Great food - everything that was supposed to be hot was hot and everything tasted delicious. The drinks were also quite tasty. Our server, Britney was awesome. It was an overall wonderful brunch, and if I lived in KC, I'd be a regular."

  • "Gram and Dun has a large patio as well as indoor seating. It's an older and established restaurant on the plaza but the food isn't old - lots of interesting menu items and drink menu is a winner as well. The signature drink, The Smoking Dun, is fabulous! Made from Templeton Rye and smoked ice, it's a one of a kind. Delicious. Outstanding burger. My halibut special was lovely and creatively presented on slate tile. Loved the curved booth where we could sit side by side and watch the buzz of the plaza pass by - ask for one of those. Excellent experience. Would return in a hearbeat."

  • "We had a great time celebrating our birthdays, though of all my visits, this was not the best visit to Gram & Dun. The patio space is nice, but can get hot. I decided to try something new and had the Shrimp and Grits with the jalapeno gravy. Before ordering, I asked the server how hot the gravy was. She replied that it wasn't. Luckily, I asked for it on the side because when I tasted a small amount on my fork, I nearly choked it was so hot. So if you don't like spicy food, be warned. The grits were fantastic. Without a sauce on the dish, it was a little dry/bland. But if you enjoy the gravy, I'm sure it's fantastic. My dining partner had the gnocchi, which is one of the best dishes there. She loved it. And Asian Pig Wings all around!"

  • "Took a party of 7 there for a client dinner. The wait staff was great. The restaurant was a great balance of hip and classy. The appetizers were okay. Once of the entrees (the boar) was overcooked and did not have the best flavor. The scallops were great, although the side that accompanied the scallops, blackened cauliflower, were a little too blackened."

  • "Great service and great food. I love this place. The food is just the right portions and the servers work in teams and they work well together. The staff really takes care of you when you are there. Food was cooked perfect and the menu selection is one of the best."

  • "We love G&D! Whenever we are in town we stop and eat. Good food is always a thing, nice variety. We sat outside and the breeze was amazing, the "brunch beverage cart" was just cool as heck. DELICIOUS!"

  • "Joined family and friends for a bachelorette day brunch. We had great service, enjoyed a variety of dishes from the menu and no one had any complaints. The bar was able to make a non-alcoholic, refreshing beverage for our party's non-drinker without any issues. The burnt end mac and cheese was spectacular, as were the coddled eggs, croque madame, gumbo, biscuits and gravy, and the PBR chicken sandwich! Will definitely be back again."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Our waitress, who I wish I could remember the name, was more than amazing. She went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and enjoy our time. I recommend the shrimp and grits, then, of course, the crack pie! Though you can expect to pay between 21-30 on an entree yourself, the quality matched te bill. It's hard to find such a fine restaurant and I can promise I will without a doubt be back."
