Beautiful night so we ate outside. Our Server was very enjoyable, knew her job, knew the menu, made some good recommendations, served everything while still hot, never let our water and drinks run dry. Meals were excellent. A great experience.

Late summer afternoon. We enjoyed the outdoor patio but would have also enjoyed the indoor eating with openings to patio. We felt like we were visiting Playa del Carmen with surrounding architecture. Food was great, views are great, and the nice walk afterwards along the viaduct was very pleasant. We’ll be back!

We started with beignets which were Devine. My daughter ordered the Breakfast sandwich, the pork was very dry and chewy as well as it being smothered in aioli. I ordered the Biscuits and gravy which were well prepared and tasty. M wife had the Texas biscuits and gravy which also were tasty. The bloody Mary’s and mimosas were well done.

I have been visiting Gram & Dun for several years…all wonderful experiences. Unfortunately last night I did not have a good experience and likely will not be going back. Service was very slow. It took 20 min for our server to take our drink order. At no time did she come to check on how our food was once served. The halibut I ordered was overcooked and extremely salty. We asked for an outside seat and we’re told none were available, however once sat there were open tables outside within 10 min. The ladies room was an absolute mess and looked like it had not had attention… In times of Covid I would’ve expected this area to be immaculate. The final issue was that there was a table of 15 sat next to us that was not appropriately socially distanced. I was very disappointed as this is a restaurant that I select every time I have family in town which is pretty frequently. There are many other good restaurants on the plaza I will now go to instead.

We sat outdoors as it was much cooler than indoors with the breeze. When became dark, it was not easy to see our food/drinks and it was impossible to read the dessert menu without having to get out our phones. A few tables have lanterns, but there was no other lighting. The food and drinks were excellent, while the service was just okay.

Hi! thank you for your feed back. As we are happy that you enjoyed our awesome food and drinks, we do apologize for the lack of lighting on our patio. we are in the process of ordering more lanterns to have at all tables.

Love the ambiance, especially on the patio. Fall nights when they turn the gas fires on at the patio are the best. Can't go wrong with anything you order!

Delicious food and friendly atmosphere. Our waiter was very helpful. We left thinking that the restaurant is short-staffed because we didn't see our waiter much and it took longer than expected to get served once we were seated. Still, we thought Gram & Dun was making the best of a trying situation. I would always recommend this restaurant.

Disappointing evening. Restaurant was not very busy and service lacked immensely. Menu prices significantly higher than last visit. Portions small and overall food quality was poor. Burnt end Mac & Cheese was disappointing.

Great ambience, staff, and facility. My brunch food was tasty, but had a few issues: the biscuits and gravy had barely any gravy and the biscuit was not warmed, and almost borderline stale. Other than those things, the experience was great, and we would visit this location (but probably not get the biscuits and gravy again).

Such a beautiful day that we wanted to enjoy dinner on the patio at Gram & Dun.
Service was great. Cocktails were great. Food was great except for the burnt end mac and cheese. Normally I LOVE it, but it was so liquidy (not cheesy liquid), that it was more like a soup. I've never seen it like this before so I'm not sure if it was just mine or if they've made a change to it. Unfortunately, it was difficult to eat even half of it. Everything else...fabulous!

We have only dined at Gram & Dun for brunch, but that has sold us on wanting to return to try its other menus. The variety of selections are great and the atmosphere is comfortable. The beignets that replaced the cinnamon role were incredible, and much lighter than what they replaced. Accompanying the great food is an ample selection of wines and cocktails, and the Mr. Pimms was a great brunch drink.
