I love Gram and Dunn! Their catfish is delicious! And the greens and potatoes are so addictive! Their old fashioned is equally as good

Food was excellent. I had the halibut, sister had the shrimp and grits, BIL had the pork chop. Everything looked and tasted great. My first time here and will be going back. Service was spot on.

Hubby’s birthday and he loved it! Try the sushi… It is out of this world! Also the Jackson was excellent with salmon on top. One thing I noticed…they didn’t bring any bread out?
Overall a great place.

I was very happy that our party of five got a booth, as I requested on Open Table. It is a NOISY place, which is nice if you want to be out and among people post-pandemic! It is bad for carrying on a conversation! The food was good but not inexpensive. Our waitress was terrific! I’m sorry that I did not catch her name! (Did I say it was noisy?!) I would recommend going here for a splurge or a fun time out on the town. Weather permitting, the outdoor seating is very nice, too.

Most of their food is great but the Brussel Sprout/Kale salad was not good. I'll go back to the restaurant but will order something different next time.

Gram & Dun seems to have missed a few steps. I made a reservation for patio but was shown to an inside table, then after my insistence the host went back to front desk and then showed me to a table on the patio in full sun (on a 90 degree day). Then after more insistence I was shown to one of the multiple open tables in the shade. Our waiter was hard to track down most of the night and drink orders were always brought by someone else as he left them sitting at the bar for a long period. G&D burger use to be one of the best in town, it was at best mediocre this time. The final disappointment of the night came when a person came by and told us they were turning on the fire right next to us. It was still high 80s and we had just cooled down, he insisted. We heard the table on the other side of the patio pleading for him not to turn on their fire and after a long conversation he finally agreed. He did not come and turn ours off. It made it unbearable so we asked for our check and left.

When friends were in town from Dallas, we wanted to treat them to an outstanding brunch at a locally-owned restaurant. Nailed it! Wonderful food and drinks out on the sunny patio.

I've never been a fan of pimento cheese...but then I'd never had yours. Our guests ordered it and we fell in love. We ordered toasted lavash to go; one for us and one for our friends to take on their flight back home. Beats stale pretzels any day. I'd like to order the Lobster Avocado every day of my life.

But what really made it special was our server, Sharon. Fun, personable and great menu suggestions.

Sat on patio. They knew an umbrella was broken and they continued to sit people at the table in the sunny 90 degree summer. Service was super slow but waiter was nice. Only had drinks because we weren’t comfortable outside. Our whole party wasn’t sure drinks even had alcohol in them. Overpriced and not worth it. Used to be a cool spot. Not going back.

We went to celebrate a 21st birthday. We were served champagne to toast the start of the evening and the birthday girl got a free dessert with a candle.

Overall a fantastic evening even though the bar was backed up and some of our drinks were slow to arrive. We will definitely return!!

We had a wonderful experience at G&D! Our server, Matthew, was fantastic -he was very attentive and made our experience special. My 8 year old said it was the best waffle she’s ever had and my husband has been raving about the potatoes and sausage patties- you definitely need to try G&D for breakfast!

Ordered filet medium rare and it was probably more medium-medium well. Was still delicious and service was amazing. It was a little loud but that’s the atmosphere I enjoy. Everything was great besides the steak cooked a little more than I’d like.

We always love Gram and Dun. However I had requested a great table out on the patio to celebrate our 32nd anniversary. It was acknowledged by the hostess stand but they proceeded to bring us to a table in the sun without an umbrella when there were other shaded tables we could have been seated at. When I requested one of the other tables the hostess said they were on a “first come first serve” basis. We were there and the table was open. She had to go back and check with the stand and then they proceeded to seat us at one of the open tables under the umbrella. Here’s a lesson for management in a situation like this: express to your hostess don’t worry so much about fairly seating for the wait staff. Think of the customer and especially those who request a table for a special occasion. It could have been handled so much better.

The hanger steak was fantastic. The pork chop was overcooked and tough. The grits were not creamy. The service was lackluster and delivered with a nonchalance not in line with the menu price points. The decor was nice but the restaurant was very, very loud.

All in all, the food was fine but the
Plaza location seems to be their saving grace. This restaurant could not justify these prices for this quality of meal in a different location.

Ordered chicken caprese sandwich. The breast of chicken was extremely huge! Like hormone-injected. Flavor was fine. Suggest you slice your chicken breasts for this sandwich. Three or four thin slices would have been plenty. Can also buy free range chickens for a smaller, less dense and less “rubbery” breast. Flavor of the sandwich was good, but needed balsamic vinegar, as is customary with caprese. Other meals ordered in group were good. The Jackson salad dressing was a bit over-powering.

Service was very slow. We were seated for half an hour before someone came to take our drink order. Another half hour wait before we received our drinks. We placed our order and had another long wait before we received our salads. Food was just OK, definitely not worth the long wait.
