    Still kicking myself for not taking a pic of my salmon dinner. Not only was it the best salmon dish I’ve ever eaten, it was one of the prettiest plates I’ve ever been served. Fall perfection! Excellent service. Thank you for a lovely evening.

    Server came to our table maybe 3 times from hello to the receipt. We go here for the service ambience and food. Took nearly 20 minutes to get a drink from when we sat down. Food was good but the rest fell flat. Came to celebrate a birthday and it was disappointing.

    It was okay. The table next to us was obnoxious and so loud we couldn't hear each other speak once they sat down. The food was fine, edible but nothing special and I wouldn't be anxious to go back. For the price, I want it to be "I can't wait to go back", but I seriously don't care if I ever eat there again. I can name many restaurants I would go to before choosing Gram & Dun again. The service was "okay", we went without water for far too long, dirty dishes on the table for far too long, it took too long to get drinks, we expressed that we wanted cappucino's with our dessert but never got them, we ordered 1 of each dessert on the menu and the server convinced us not to do that. I am okay if I never go again.

    Great overall experience and staff. I went during brunch and ordered the chicken and waffle which was excellent but considering the amount of food you get with it I just don’t believe it’s worth $25 but the taste is definitely there. I ordered a side of breakfast potatoes for $5 which was good and added to my fulfillment. I would go back and try other options.

    My server was great no issues there. Food is overpriced for the quality/portion size. We left hungry and we even ordered two appetizers. The were a bunch of fruit flies around our table. Never saw a manager the entire visit or would have addressed the fruit flies with them.

    Gram & Dun is one of the few places we found who are offering brunch. Other “brunch” places are actually more lunch places, opening at 11am. They were available at 10am, not too noisy, with some good brunch selections. It was a friend’s birthday brunch. The beignets were great, and the biscuit, gravy and egg plate was tasty and sufficient. Ryland, our server, made it a pleasure. She never rushed us, kept the coffee and water topped. But, more importantly, she made pleasant conversation, good suggestions, and was generally a superior server. And at the last, the kitchen sent out a clever, classy plate with “happy birthday” stenciled in powdered sugar, a single candle alight and a small, delicious dessert bar. They made it good, in a classy, understated way, and we really appreciated it.

    Hostess forgot birthday wish, food was nothing special. 1 dish was 25 dollars and was smaller than an appetizer ( Mac/cheese, which came in a very small skillet) appetizers were also tasteless. Atmosphere and service was excellent.

    The location of this restaurant is the best thing they have going. It was a perfect sunny fall day for brunch. The Food was just ok but the service was not good. Honestly a robot would have been preferred over the person we had. Overall not a great brunch experience.

    We were seated and had a very good waitress. My husband ordered soup which was brought to him without a soup spoon and the individual paid no attention to the fact the spoon was missing. It took about 5 minutes to find someone to say we needed a soup spoon. The hostess indicated she would need to find a manager (not sure why). Our waitress came over and brought him a new bowl with a spoon. The meal was brought to the table. He ordered a kc strip steak sandwich which was skimpy on the meat and the meat was shredded in very small pieces and not sliced. I ordered the burnt end Mac and cheese which had less than an ounce of meat which was very fatty.

    Gram and dun is one of our favorite places to eat. Especially on the patio. The food and drinks are always stellar. Our waiter was so good and she was very nice. The fire is nice but patio heaters might be better. We sat right next to the fire and smelled gas all night and my friend was afraid her hair was getting burnt because we kept smelling burnt hair. Thankfully it wasn’t hers. All in all we will go back patio heaters or not.
