My boyfriend and I love gram & dun. Second time dining here for date night and we enjoyed trying multiple seasonal drinks (especially the basil smash and the son of betty). We loved the hanger steak, but the appetizer worth mentioning is definitely the twisted bread! The ambiance is quiet and elegant, and the wait staff is very kind and attentive. We will be back soon!

We always love this place! In particular, the catfish! My personal favorite is the Jackson salad… The people are always friendly and so pretty good value it’s one of our regular places.

Gram & Dun reopened this evening. If you're hesitant or leery about leaving safe quarters but want to get out I would absolutely with 100% confidence recommend Gram&Dun.
They are READY for you!
You wouldn't think they had ever closed; they didn't miss a beat in service, food or their environment. It was literally perfect. They had done everything they could have done to properly distance us from others and with the exception of dropping plates or glasses on our table it was a complete contact free experience. Every single employee wore a mask and gloves. Menu is available on our phone and I was able to scan a QR code on the receipt that took me to an e-commerce platform so no one touched my credit card. We had specifically requested the patio and arrived early ensuring we got a table of our choice.

I also should add that I suggest you make reservations in advance (if possible) due to the decrease in the amount of people they can serve within their capacity.

We have been to Gram & Dun several times and have always had a great meal. Our visit last week was the same. Outstanding meal and great service. The burnt end mac & cheese was to die for.

Used to go here a lot when we lived in KC. Moved about 3 years ago. They used to have a burger that was excellent on the dinner menu. No longer. So that was disappointing. Food we did get was just ok. Service was excellent. Drinks were excellent. Maybe just an off night.

The menu has gotten a little too crazy for me. Seems like everything has to be a little foo-foo. For example, the burger used to have a great slice of thick bacon. Now it has "bacon caramel" - whatever that is - the waiter could not explain it. The bun used to be a regular bun. Now the bun is a jalapeño cheddar pretzel bun. These are just examples.

Also, the menu outside by the door was different than the menu at the table.

G&D - not everythings needs to be crazy and all fancy.

Hair was found in food. Staff was apologetic and handled it kindly but I couldn't get past it. They asked me to come back and let them redeem themselves, but no offer of a small gift card to ensure that happened- and i wouldn't risk it on my own dime. It would have been such a simple small gesture and an easy way to smooth over an awkward situation. (I refused a second meal and drink offer after I sent back the food).

We really weren't exited about the menu, the Pork chops which came recommended by the Server were ok, nothing amazing, my Pasta was odd, with green olive & jalepeno, though I'd give it a try because it was an odd combo, it was ok but dry not alot of flavorful sauce. We arrived at 7 on a Thursday, it was really loud and a soft spoken server made it really hard to hear, so we just guessed at what she said after asking her to repeat herself, she never thought to maybe bend down to get closer to us or speak louder?! The outside fire pits and setting is lovely but we sat inside due to it being cold. We will go back for drinks outside, but probably not for dinner again. All 4 of us at the table agreed it was ok, but not amazing.

We’ve been coming here for the last five years on business, and always choose Gram & Dun for our dining experience. The first 2 years there was a desert called The Crack, and it was amazing. I normally don’t eat desert but I found myself enjoying this desert each visit. Then the next trip they said they took it off the menu. I would like to say please bring it back. That desert was delicious. Right now I’m enjoying The S’mores desert but it is not the same.

the Service and food were fantastic. We even brought our 5 year old and were amazed at the level of attention they gave him so he could enjoy the experience as well. Prices are a little high, but for a special occasion like our night was it was certainly worth it. M

We always love coming here. Every year they make it easy and special for our anniversary. The food is amazing, and it’s so nice to see gluten free options clearly marked so I don’t feel weird asking. It’s special to be able to eat here for our anniversary every year. So laid back but also a lovely environment. This is our third wedding Anniversary dinner at Gram & Dun and it didn’t disappoint.

I ordered the Tomahawk steak for two. Usually that's like a Fred Flintstone sized steak but when they brought it out it was cut up in pieces and it was about 14 oz. It was not enough for two and it didn't come with any sides. You would think it would for $72. Not worth the value. Nice environment, waiters were okay in service. When we asked the second server why he brought ice-cream to our table he sort of shrugged his shoulders, not catching the hint that we didn't order it, and said "they told me to bring it to this table."

Reserved a table for Valentine’s Day. Didn’t remember until about a week out, so all that was left was 10pm or later, but that was fine. Food was great, service was excellent, our server (Andrea? I hope I’m remembering that correctly,) was very nice and attentive.

The food at G&D is phenomenal...start with notted bread and dumplings. Had duck carbonara and it was A+. Above and beyond comfort food. Ask for ANDREA as your server-her professionalism and kindness was off the charts! Great time.

Me and my wife got to your restaurant and for one we couldn’t get the valentines meal because it didn’t start until 4pm and I made reservations and wasn’t told this, further more the lunch menu was so underwhelming that we didn’t even stay to eat not even an appetizer. Service was good waitress waited on us to decide patiently giving us only the lunch menu items to choose from so we left and ate at a restaurant down the street (Season’s 52)

we went for lunch and enjoyed the food and the service. Our server made some some good recommendations. I had the Wagyu burger with the beef fat fries and my wife had the green lentil soup and the G&D salad. Definitely will go back.

Food was phenomenal. Seating seemed a bit smooshed and tight but the atmosphere was great. Loved the low lights, the booths had coat hooks on the side which is nice due to tight seating. All the staff was friendly and helpful.

Well we didn’t realize they do brunch on Saturday afternoon so our choices were limited. Bloody Mary was to die for!!! Pimento cheese appetizer was super yummy. Pork hash as good but really greasy and the puttanesca was good the salmon was overcooked. The bathrooms are down 2 flights of stairs and parking was bad!!! Probably more like a 3.5 but server was good and drinks were great!!
