I was there with 4 others for a 2:15 Easter Brunch pre-set menu. They ran out of prime rib, the Amish chicken was under-cooked. They also ran out of one of two deserts. For 35 dollars per person plus drinks you would think that they would be better prepared. My desert came out later than the other four and by the time I received it the ice cream was melted partially. Finally the 12 dollar additional bread board had no bread or rolls just pastries and biscuits. We asked for more biscuits and got charged an additional 12 dollars. Money is not the issue but rather the principle. I have done holiday brunches previously at Gram and Dun. The set up was a buffet and was outstanding. I was called days before the brunch to tell me that it was a preset menu which I had the entire party look at in advance as it was too late to make new reservations somewhere else. This would have been acceptable if the chicken was cooked and the prime rib and desert were available. I will not be dining at Gram and Dunn again nor will I recommend it to anyone.

Gram & Dun is a "go to" place, especially for special occasion brunches. They typically have a fixed price menu and lots of variety. We went for Easter Brunch and were not disappointed. Our server was very good and I appreciate that items from the bar or kitchen are delivered by runners as soon as they are ready. I also appreciated the way that they handled being out of one of the items that we had selected. They gave us several choices that were not on the menu. It was a beautiful day in Kansas City and they had the doors open to the outdoors which was delightful. Check out Gram & Dun, I know you will not come away hungry or disappointed.

Firstly, we dined on Easter Sunday. A challenging day for the restaurant.
1. The Pork Wings were terrific. Loved them.
2. All the starches on the entree plates were luke warm to cold. The same is true for the plates. Hot food=hot plates.
3. If you're offering burnt ends, WHY would I want them buried under a pile of under-seasoned, rather flavorless macaroni and cheese? WTH!
4. Burnt ends are not a braised meat, they should be somewhat crisp exterior with evidence of a smoke ring.
5. Macaroni & cheese is supposed to taste of cheese, salt, pepper etc. Someone didn't taste their food.
6. Seriously, three shrimp on the shrimp and grits?? I think you all can afford to put four or five on the plate!
7. GD bar for dessert was surprisingly good. I kinda hope you all made it in house.
8. Who eats pound cake for dessert? There was nothing appealing about that dessert choice.

We had bragged to our friends how great the Pigs Wings appetizers were but they fatty and tough this time and the meatballs were nothing special. After the disappointing start the entrees followed the same pattern, the bouillabiasse was mediocre and the battered pork chop had no flavor. The gooey brownie dessert dry. The location and atmosphere was fun and energenic but unfortunately the food has gone downhill, probably will be our last dinner visit.

Easter weekend Saturday. Beautiful day looking out over patio to brush creek. Server, Sierra, was excellent. Four family members sampled lots of items. Do not miss the cinnamon roll. The pimento cheese appetizer with toasted pita outstanding. Favorite entree: Mac n Cheese with Short Rib. Also excellent: Black Bean burger and Short Rib Grilled Cheese. Excellent fries and slaw. We loved everything about our Plaza lunch at Gram & Dunn on a beautiful Saturday afternoon. Definitely make reservations!!

Out to KC to visit our son. Sat at the outside bar on a sunny and warm Friday afternoon. Drinks yummy, food delicious and bartender Joe the best. Stayed for about 2.5 hours with no one rushing us. There is s pretty big fire pit to sit around- very chill! Overall a really good experience.

We love G&D and always come for special occasions. The ambiance is amazing - especially in the Spring/Summer. Open air, patio dining is the best. You get the Plaza atmosphere without being in the middle of lots of people constantly walking by. The menu, while not vast, is amazing and has something for everyone. Their bartenders are fantastic and mix those drinks just right!

As always the experience at Gram and Dun was incredible....we went for Sunday brunch and had a great mix of appetizers...the Asian pig wings are always our favorite but for brunch they had cinnamon rolls that were delicious as well. Meal was very very good and has been every time we have eaten here and the service was accurate and prompt as always. Love Gram and Dun

Everything was good but it is noisy and that makes it hard to carry on a conversation. Too many hard surfaces. Nothing to stop the noise or echo. But this is typical of so many restaurants.

My boyfriend and I went here for an anniversary and our server was so polite and patient with us when we were trying to find something from the menu. She made recommendations and offered her help which was very useful. I would definitely recommend going here to anyone that loves a nice relaxing environment where you never feel rushed. The staff is absolutely amazing and truly care about your experience.

The food was good and our server was great. However we were very disappointed that we did not get an outside table as we had requested. There were 3 tables the same size as ours that they said were reserved for 6:00 , our res. Was for 5:15. Kind of crummy that they prioritize some reservations over others. This isn’t the first time we’ve had problems with our reservation. Think we’re done with Gram & Dunn. So many other great places on the Plaza

My husband, brother and close friends met for a nice brunch this past Sunday. We always enjoy Gram and Dunn! I’m surprised at 11:00am there were already items on their menu they were out of... I.e. the 9 grain toast and original cinnamon rolls. There was also a fairly long span between the time we ordered and got our food where we didn’t see our waitress. I know brunch is a busy time and especially with St. Patty’s day but a few of use we’re completely out of coffee. Food was delicious when it arrived!
