Second time doing their summer Art of BBQ series. @$24 pp, decent price (especially since it comes with 2 beers). Fairly wide selection of regional dishes, all well-curated for the region. I focused on the shrimp, hubby on the pork ribs (theme was Memphis). Desserts always good. We might be back for one more before they’re done for the season.

Staff are friendly and attentive. Love the seafood but the rest was okay. Quickly filled mimosas and coffee. Sandy and Francisco are attentive and paying attention to the details. In general it was a great place to have brunch and celebrate for special occasion

Very nice brunch, wish I knew about the online coupon deal beforehand it would of made it more of a value for me. The servers were very nice and we got seated right away. At first we we seated next to an extremely loud bridal shower of some sort and we asked to be moved and they immediately accommodated us for which we were very grateful. Overall everything was very nice.

I love this place. Awesome for Weekend brunch. Seafood is delicious. Its a tad expensive $55 but really worth about $35-$40. Great service. I wish there was some kind of music in the background...its super quiet amongst the loud laughter from drunken guests enjoying their bottomless mimosas.

Our reservation was 2:15, no one was there. They were beginning to close the brunch. We had to set ourselves, then while we got the food someone took our seats. Also they had to get the people to serve the food. Frankly it just was not worth the cost.

Excellent place to take your co-workers who are celebrating a promotion, or in my case, a retirement. Great ambiance and food selection, including desserts. I do recommend this place to those in the downtown civic center area.

First off, the food and ambiance was amazing. I love this place and have been coming here for a little over a year now. Which is why I was disappointed in the service I received from the carver at the carving station. He had a real attitude problem in my requesting medium rare cuts from Prime Rib roast. First trip around he only had the last part of a roast which was medium to medium well. I understand he didn't cook it but when I asked him for a medium rare piece from another roast that was untouched and just sitting there, he argued that he wasn't done with last bit of the previous roast and then asked why I wanted medium rare? The service was stellar at the egg/omelette station and from our waiters but this really turned me off. In the service industry a carver is suppose to be friendly, welcoming, warm and accommodating and especially on special days like Father's Day.

I'm not the type to write negative reviews but I felt I needed to bring this to Grand Cafe's attention as well as Open Table.

Thank you

Great for weekend brunch. Unlimited crab legs for $50 is worth it! Mimosas are bottomless! Food is fresh! The only thing thats missing is low music in the background.

The food was mediocre. Champagne/mimosas not so great, coffee and desserts were delicious. Service was good. Wouldn't go out of my way for it. I wasn't able to use my Groupon by the expiration date and they would not accept the basic value of it because the Groupon was only good for Saturdays and I had to go on a Sunday!

In the past I have gone for the crab legs, however, on this occassion the crab legs were very tiny and was time consuming to crab. Not sure if this was to do with the many hurricanes that took place last year. Also, the fried chicken could have been cooked longer. Other than this the selection was amble and the food was succulent.

We have always enjoyed Mother's Day brunch here but this time was disappointing. We were seated late and out doors without being asked if we preferred outdoors. After talking to manager, two tables were put together in doors to accommodate our 7 person party. Last year all the moms received a crown and and a long stemmed rose. This year we were not treated well until we protested. I believe poor planning by restaurant staff resulted in several unhappy customers. Will probably look for new venue for next Mother's Day.

This experience was the worst experience I've had with the Grande Cafe and I've been several times under excellent conditions. The food was cold all of it, they were not fully set up on arrival. I had a 1015 reservation arrived at 1010 and was told to wait 5mins. There was more management in the serving area than servers. Again all the food was cold well as drawn butter was COLD on Mothers Day!
