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. Gram & Dun: Kansas City's original gastropub.

    Our 24 year old son could have chosen any restaurant in the city to celebrate his birthday, but he chose Gram and Dun. Nothing is better than sitting on the patio having an interesting cocktail or unusual entry. It's always an exciting adventure at Gram and Dun.

    Dined on 9/6/2014
    The service was excellent but the food nothing great. Do not order the sausage appetizer. Pretty disgusting with the Marrow bone and mushy sausage. I had the hanger steak. Ok but not very flavorful. My friend had the scallops and it was just OK. he felt there was not enough to eat. Although this place seems to be the IN place to be and be seen, I don't think I will be going back. Also thought it was overpriced for what you got. My friend had 2 glasses of wine and I had 1 cozmo and the bill was over $100 before tip.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014

    Not the place to go for a romantic dinner. The open patio caused so much noise that my date got a headache. If they partitioned off the back half of the seating it would at least have one quiet area. The food was excellent but difficult to enjoy as people walking by my seat continued to bump into me. The night club bar emphasis took away from the dining experience. The bridal parties entrance and seating in the dining area did not help.

    We were seated promptly in a booth/chair combo table that was exposed to all the hustle and bustle of the restaurant. Once sat, we were told our server would be right with us, but we waited almost 10 minutes for her. We ordered the grilled rosemary sourdough to start, and it was to charred that it was not enjoyable. We wanted to ask for a new portion, but our server never came by to check on us. For dinner we order the burger and the salmon, and shared plates. The burger and fries were good. The salmon was cooked well, but lack seasoning, and the sides were terrible. We wanted to order dessert, but we sat with empty beers waiting for the waitress for so long, that we decided to not risk being disappointed, and asked for the check.

    We got a reservation for Sunday evening of Labor Day weekend. We greeted by hostess and seated in a nice booth facing the windows. Our waiter Bobby was super friendly and helpful. we ordered a bottle of nice Pinot Noir, had the muscles as an appetizer. They were perfectly cooked and served with a 1/4 loaf of sourdough bread. My husband ordered the shrimp and grits and I got the flatiron steak. My steak was cooked exactly how I like it and the shrimp and grits were stellar. My husband can't eat sugar and Bobby was so great about getting us a fresh berry dessert. I got the vanilla bean gelato. The food was great, the service was great, and the atmosphere was great! Thanks so much for a great dining experience!

    I don't usually go to restaurants on the Plaza; I let the tourists enjoy them. However, a friend wanted to meet on the Plaza, so I selected Gram & Dun since it is locally owned. From the moment I walked it, I was treated to excellent service. The hostess, the server, the food runner, every staff member I came in contact with, was pleasant and acted like they were happy to see me! They were not just going through the motions. My friend and I split the hanger steak which was wonderful and cooked perfectly. And we didn't get and eye rolling from the server for splitting a meal. Every aspect of our experience was great!

The four of us had an excellent experience. The service and food were phenomenal! They kept it a little too dim during dinner for our liking, but the good things about the restaurant outweighed that. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone (including goodies)!

    We brought family from out of town to Gram and Dun for dinner since it's one of our favorite local places. We had a reservation but it was a gorgeous summer day and the patio was packed. The staff had a few miscues on timing to seat us and bring our food, but the response to these incidents showed they are true professionals. Our comfort and enjoyment were a real priority. We should have walked away disappointed, but Chris turned the evening into an awesome experience for all of us. I've rarely felt so well taken care of at a busy restaurant. As always, the food was phenomenal, as were the specialty cocktails. We've dined at many fine restaurants in KC and beyond... Gram and Dun is one of the best and keeps us coming back in all seasons!

    The service was excellent. We ate inside, but the Patio area would be wonderful on a warm evening. The Meatball appetizer was wonderful. I plan to visit again because there were several items on the menu I want to try. Comfy casual setting, can be a little noisy when full. All in all another go to spot on the Plaza.
