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.

The food was very good but not the best in the area. I the main courses we had were good but the sides that came with the entrees were just OK. The desert was also just OK. I enjoyed the restaurant but as I mentioned earlier there are better in the area.

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.

We had a great time. Although we had reservations for several weeks and requested outdoor seating they were taking phone numbers and texting walk ups giving them first shot at outdoor - - however we were eventually seated outside. The cushion in my chair was soaking wet - hopefully it was just from someone spilling their drink - so when I sat down my jeans were soaked for the rest of the night. Thankfully it wasn't cold out. We were from out of town and I did not have another pair to change into. But our server was wonderful and the food was good. I had the pork chop - it wasn't as tender as described but it was OK. My husband had the chicken & waffles and the chicken was very "crunchy" but once again edible. Nothing stood out except the service. I would go back but not during the art fair - they were just overwhelmed.

First we called ahead of our reservations to ask about corkage fees, and if we were able to bring in our own wine.. we were told yes, and a fee. So we proceeded with our night, wine in tow. Upon arrival at the restaurant we were told, oh no, other wines are not allowed

Tremendous service and a really eclectic menu with delicious appetizers. Don’t ever pass on the pig wings as they might be one of the tastiest bites I’ve had my life! We had crusted cornmeal catfish that was absolutely delicious, shrimp and grits, and chicken and waffles. Everything was absolutely wonderful and our server was phenomenal!

Drinks were bad but probably due to my choice of a house gin. Tonic was not good even when replaced. Ran out of special desserts. Chairs on patio very dirty. Just not like I remembered. Likely last visit for me.

Second time for Sunday brunch when visiting KC, and it was as fabulous as the first time! Waitress was so pleasant and helpful. Love the indoor seating that is open enough to the outside to accommodate perfectly when one person wants inside and the other outside. Food and drinks are just what one hopes for and more during a Sunday brunch. Truly an excellent job done here by ownership and staff.

Came to KC for a girl's weekend and got reservations at Gram & Dun. We arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation but were able to sit outside on the patio immediately. We were next to the fire which took the chill out of the fall air and cast a lovely light on our experience. The waitstaff was attentive and kind, making recommendations and assisting with wine without any pretension. The shrimp and grits was amazing as were the chips as an appetizer. No one at my table didn't enjoy their meal.

My birthday dinner with my wonderful significant other and our best friends. The food was amazing and the service was even better. Our server Andrea’ was wonderful and the host staff as well. It was our first time at Gram&Dun but will definitely not be our last. We had a fantastic time. Because it was a birthday celebration, they gave us complimentary champagne after dinner. Overall, a fantastic evening. Thank you Gram&Dun!!
