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.

    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!

    We had a wonderful meal here. The atmosphere is sophisticated but welcoming. We dined inside to beat the heat. Fun drink menu. The Ginger Rogers is a favorite. Great choice of appetizers and salads, especially the Jackson. Loved the Crack pie for dessert. Definitely will return.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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!
