Great ambiance, great server, great steak. I would say the appetizers (French onion dumplings and bread) and sides were ok. The au gratin type potatoe that accompanied the wagyu steak was cold to the touch on both plates. The burnt ends Mac and cheese was good not great. Like I said the steak was outstanding: the sides need to be worked on.

Table next to us was super loud, drunk & rowdy. We both had the pumpkin pasta dish and were both extremely disappointed.
Great service by Andrea.
Live close and frequent Gram & Dun ... not sure if I’ll be going back. Bummer as it’s usually a good experience.

Generally, it was an extremely loud atmosphere on a Sunday night @ 8:00 p.m. Specifically, I had to confront a table where expletives were being used often and loudly...no staff doing the correction, it was me.

Food (all 3 of our meals) was over-engineered and gratuitously complicated.

Put in my Open Table reservation earlier that day, and no problem getting seated at the reserved time. I chose to sit outside on the patio, next to their fire pit. Very comfortable and great waitress. The catfish was cooked perfectly, and the gooey chocolate cake was worth the extra calories. Great location !

My husband and I came to kc to visit our son& his girlfriend . We wanted to treat them to dinner. I had never been here before, we live in Pennsylvania. I googled restaurants and saw how pretty the place was and menu looked good. My dinner was delivered and the waiter had not even left the table when I saw a black hair ( I’m blonde )😬. They were very nice and got me a new entree( I hope it was new). We had dessert at the end and guess what , another black hair. The waitress was apologetic, but....that was disgusting. The dessert was the gram & dun dessert and hair was embedded in the top chocolate layer. They tried to tell us it was from pastry brush!!! It clearly wasn’t 🤪 Needless to say, I’m not picking the restaurants anymore.

Chips were excellent. Drinks were excellent.

Chicken and waffles advertised Maple syrup. It was not. It was not maple syrup. It was that fake crap. I even asked before I ordered if it would be actual maple syrup. No one knew.

Excellent atmosphere. I’d suggest go for drinks, chips and dessert. The desserts looked amazing.

We were sooo disappointed.

We had an outstanding server, which can make or break any evening. She definitely made ours a really good experience. Very difficult menu, but what we finally settled on was not over the top, but was good. Can't say they are the only place, but as many it is very difficult to carry on a conversation and we were with out of town friends we were trying to catch up with. Want to say, though, nice that we were celebrating a birthday and they gave him a dessert.

I sat outdoors which was really nice. The fire pit, bushes of flowers and lighting made for great ambiance. I did somehow manage to sit on a seat with something wet in it, which I later found out was some sort of alcohol. I was kind of annoyed with the smell and stain getting on my pants, but the staff checked in with me several times and apologized.
I ordered the not-so-ordinary potato chips as an appetizer. It came with a sauce flight. The combination of sauce flavors each went well with the Parmesan chips, which were clearly fresh and homemade. The rose gold spritzer with prosecco was tasty.
My entree, the catfish, was subpar. While it was perfectly fried to a crisp, it lacked any flavor. It was served with a spicy aioli, that didn’t seem to be spicy at all. The grits were okay. The flavor of the red cabbage and caraway slaw did not fair well together with the filets or grits.

Overall it was a good experience. I’ll definitely go back and be sure to try other entrees.

Gram and Dunn is always consistently on point. The attention to detail in the kitchen and bar is perfect. It is one of those restaurants you don't mind dropping $100 bucks on. It is one of my favorite restaurants.
