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.

    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The service was outstanding! Server was very knowledgeable on menu items and ingredients plus extensive knowledge on the wines offered. He made the entire evening even so much better. Noise level made conversation a bit difficult at times. Will definitely return but not on a weekend night."

  • "Loaded Baked Potato Gnocchi and heirloom tomato salad, delicious New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc and the outdoor breeze made this Thursday lunch feel like a micro vacation, right in the middle of the work day. This was not my first time at G&D, not will it be my last."

  • "This was the perfect spot for an ending to a busy two days of work. Loved the food and the service was great!"

  • "Gary our server was very knowledgeable and the chef, Brad I think. The chef, came out to the table and talked with us about their utilization of local k.c. products, and produce in some specials. Kurbaums tomato salad was amazing."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Our group of seven made a 3:00 lunch a most festive occasion. All the food was shared by all and the waiter was most accommodating to our requests. Shrimp and grits, beer can chicken, Mac and cheese, and hanger steak were among the facorites."

  • "My friends and I were going to be in KC for the weekend for a bachelorette party. I was doing some research on good places to eat and came across Gram & Dun! 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!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Our waiter, Chris H., was great! He knew the menu very well and had a fun personality. The food was fantastic! Lots of choices you won't find other places. We had a great time and will be back!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Gram & Dun was a delight from beginning to end--we arrived early and were immediately seated on the patio, as we had hoped. Andrea, our waitress, was knowledgeable, professional, and personable. The food was excellent and the ambiance was perfect for a great summer evening. Everyone was attentive and helpful! It's a long way from Texas but will be a "must-go" every time we are in KC!"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Love the patio, bar is great - good specialty drinks (try the "D Cup" - you won't be disappointed!) Everything on the menu is tasty!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The food was great, the service exceptional. A great choice for an exceptional night out! Definitely recommended."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "I had the shrimp and grits it was as good as ever. It was a good place for families as well"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I live in KC, and I go to G&D often. It's one of our favorites and is very consistent. The staff is always friendly, but subtle, and the food is delish."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We met another couple at the restaurant for dinner and it was a fun night. We had great drinks (Basil Smash, Moscow Mule, etc.) and the food was delicious. I like that they had a unique twist on a lot of the dishes and appetizers."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We were impressed with the entire evening. Our first visit will not be our last."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Probably my favorite lunch ever! Loved everything: potato chips with gourmet ketchups, shrimp & grits, all desserts (we each got a different one). My son insisted I try his burger - incredible! Dane provided fantastic service!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "If you like pork, which I do, this is a great place. Innovative menu for adventurous foodies."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "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."
