Drinks were bad but probably due to my choice of a house gin. Tonic was not good even when replaced. Ran out of special desserts. Chairs on patio very dirty. Just not like I remembered. Likely last visit for me.

Second time for Sunday brunch when visiting KC, and it was as fabulous as the first time! Waitress was so pleasant and helpful. Love the indoor seating that is open enough to the outside to accommodate perfectly when one person wants inside and the other outside. Food and drinks are just what one hopes for and more during a Sunday brunch. Truly an excellent job done here by ownership and staff.

Came to KC for a girl's weekend and got reservations at Gram & Dun. We arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation but were able to sit outside on the patio immediately. We were next to the fire which took the chill out of the fall air and cast a lovely light on our experience. The waitstaff was attentive and kind, making recommendations and assisting with wine without any pretension. The shrimp and grits was amazing as were the chips as an appetizer. No one at my table didn't enjoy their meal.

G&D is the one restaurant I always dine at when visiting KC. Between the creative twists on traditional dishes and the delicious cocktails, it never disappoints! The wait staff is courteous and attentive and the ambiance is great for most any occasion. Also, the Sunday brunch is one of my faves!

My birthday dinner with my wonderful significant other and our best friends. The food was amazing and the service was even better. Our server Andrea’ was wonderful and the host staff as well. It was our first time at Gram&Dun but will definitely not be our last. We had a fantastic time. Because it was a birthday celebration, they gave us complimentary champagne after dinner. Overall, a fantastic evening. Thank you Gram&Dun!!

Good but not 5 star. Lots of unhealthy food choices...fried chicken w/ waffle, etc. that being said, my wife had one of the few seafood offferings...snapper. It was very good. I had the hanger steak and it was very good as well. They serve a very nice cocktail which is a bonus since a lot of places measure out a skimpy drink. First course was the charcuterie platter...ehh...nothing special. Cheeses were both soft and out of a tub. Convenient location in the Plaza with very nice outdoor dining. All in all, we wouldn’t race back but we would certainly return and not complain.

We started with Lemonades, Iced Teas, and an Arnold Palmer. The lemonade tastes fresh squeezed and vibrant. The Arnold Palmer was the perfect combination of a delicious Iced Tea and refreshing Lemonade. The Cinnamon Roll and Apple Fritter starters were both wonderful! I wish the Cinnamon Roll was pulled from the oven just a few minutes earlier - I like my cinnamon rolls just a little bit more doughy but it was still very tasty!! A lot a cinnamon and cream cheese icing made for a great starter.
My Father in Law got the hash and said it was perfect! My Mother in Law got a light salad with chicken and it looked so incredibly delicious that I wish I would have ordered that instead and will get it the next time we are there.
My husband got the Chicken Sandwich and he inhaled it! He did have to take the jalapeños off of it though as it was just a little too spicy for him. I got the waffles with added chicken. The chicken was just a touch dry but the butter/syrup combo helped with that. The waffle was amazing and if I got it again I would probably ditch the chicken or just get that salad. I did have the cinnamon roll too so I think the waffle was a little too rich for me at that point - my mistake.

All in all it was a wonderful experience and I can't wait to go back.

Absolutely love this restaurant. The food and cocktails are amazing. We were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary and were greeted with complementary champagne and special greeting from both the hostess and waiter. Highly recommend this location. We started with the Asian pig wings and French soup dumplings. I sipped on the very yummy Smokin Dun (this cocktail is a must). We had shrimp and grits and the double pork chop. Both were incredible.

We dined as a party of two indoors but in a high traffic area between the dining room and outdoor patio. The traffic distracted from our experience but the bar and kitchen did not disappoint. The double porkchop was tender and juicy and quite large. The chop was accompanied by delicious creamed brussels sprouts (with bacon!). We also ordered the shrimp & grits and a house salad. The shrimp were slightly charred which complimented the creamy grits nicely. The salad had fresh green lettuces and some thinly sliced radish in a tasty peppercorn dressing. We passed on dessert strictly for waistline considerations.

I ordered Not So Chips. Although they were tasty, sauces were not out of this world and the price is kind of ridiculous for potato chips. Also had the black bean burger. Nothing special and the texture was too soft. My company had gumbo, which he said was excellent, and jerk chicken sandwich, which was okay. My other fellow diner had his first chicken and waffles. He didn't provide any specific comments but cleaned his plate. Best parts about the meal were the spectacular service and ambiance.

I love Gram & Dun's unique twist on their food offerings. We started with the french onion dumplings which were good but I would probably order a different starter the next time. They did fully embody a french onion soup flavoring but they weren't as delectable as the entrees. For the main course, I got the shrimp and grits were GREAT and my husband ordered the double pork with creamed Brussels sprouts. We both enjoyed our meal and would recommend to others visiting the KC area.

We were greeted and seated immediately. The food and service were very good. There is a great outdoor seating area but it was raining so we didn't get outside. Some of the indoor tables are quite close together so that can be a little challenging. Otherwise I would definitely recommend Gram and Dun and will go again.

I've tried several menu items and each are equally delicious. My personal favorite is the short rib grilled cheese and the Brussels Sprouts. They serve water without ice so don't be afraid to ask for a glass of ice for your water.
