This was a pleasant surprise. Good food, good service, and a good price. Had the deviled eggs and charred brussels sprouts for starters and both were great. Meals were very good, dessert was ok. Nice atmosphere. Will definitely go back.

Our experience at Gracie’s is always won. Tonight though was extremely special. Our daughter and her fiancé’ had a very small wedding and then chose to celebrate at Gracie’s. It was a perfect evening and then they even decided to spend the night in one of their rooms.

I know you are probably tired of hearing me rave about Gracie's, but Sunday brunch has become a new family tradition for us. We thoroughly enjoy the atmosphere, the proximity to our church the service and of course the food. Love spending family brunch at Gracie's. Give it a try...you will be back. Thank you, Gracie's!

My wife loved the breakfast burrito that she had. I opted for the gnocchi with spinach, bacon, and egg. It was delicious to the max. The gnocchi were sautéed to a beautiful golden brown, and all the flavors complimented each other. The Bloody Mary was right decent, and really hit the spot. Looking forward to going back.

While the food was yummy the serving size for brunch just wasn’t enough. I say this with caution as I’ve spent time in Europe where serving sizes are smaller. This just didn’t fill me especially for the price range. Perhaps consider adding some build in sides with your brunch entrees. With that being said, I loved the atmosphere, the tastes, the approaches, and the time and effort put into our delicious meal.

I would have given our service 5 stars, the waitress was very nice, but she never mentioned the special. I only knew there was one because we overheard another waitress tell her tale about it, but we had already placed our order. Also, I ordered the Walleye and the special was a salmon. I would think this would have jogged her memory. I would still recommend Gracie's and I will go back.

I didn't see your full review, but I do apologize if you experienced a long wait. We were fully booked and had an extremely busy Friday night for Valentine's Day, and also had a server leave in the middle of service due to illness. We worked hard to regroup quickly and got back on track, but I am sorry if it negatively affected your experience dining with us. I do hope you come back and dine with us again.

I am willing to give it another chance. Just hoping service was a fluke. Bar tender was great but food issues for sure, not getting what was ordered etc

I am very saddened to hear this as your group seemed to have such a nice time and your husband and brother said it was the best Valentine's day ever. We worked so hard to accommodate the last minute changes to your reservation to keep the surprise going for your family. We normally would not seat the bar on such a busy night like Valentine's Day, but did so to try to make your family's request possible. We pride ourselves on great food and service, and I'm proud of my team for their work.

Ok experience. Tight tables, a bit rushed. Valentine’s Day and busy so were moving people through rather fast-salad came before starter finished, entree came soon after salad. Potato skins and salad were good; entrees just ok. Might give it another try.

Thank you for your comments. It was a busy night with a full floor and the tables were tight to accommodate all of the two top diners. Next year, we may remove a few for more comfortable seating. We had a server have to leave in the middle of service due to illness and we had about 20 minutes where we had to regroup the other servers and redistribute the tables for service. I know it caused a little hiccup on the floor and I apologize it affected you. I do hope that you give us another try. -Ami

Beautiful decor and signage/ style/ ambiance is spot on. Owner engaged and invested in her guests. 3 stars is all about the food. Food lacks the refinement you would expect from a finer dining establishment. The mentality and vision is there but lacks in execution. I had the meatloaf with natural carrots, smashed redskin potatoes and broccoli robb. Would’ve been fitting if blackened spice was cooked into a veal meatloaf with caramelized brown sugar and melted blue cheese on top and draped in a rich, dark, shiitake mushroom gravy. Broccoli was overcooked and carrots were undercooked.

I would not return unless the quality of food matches the price.

Responded on February 17, 2020

Thank you for the feedback. We are known for our high quality and well-executed food, so I apologize that you did not have the experience that you deserve. It was an extremely busy night as we were fully booked from 4:30 to 9:30 on a Valentine's Day Friday; however, that is no excuse for not delivering on our promise of delivering amazing food and service. Please call me in the office so I can accommodate you on another evening and give you the true Gracie's experience.

This was our first visit. The decor was a little underwhelming for my taste and there was a smell of cleaner when we came through the front door. We quickly got over this, but we all noticed it at a first impression. The menu was good, with great variety. Definitely something for everyone. If you like roasted Brussels Sprouts, do not miss this offering at gracie’s. They were great. Everyone at our table enjoyed their food. The steak special, chicken Marsala and Mediterranean walleye did not disappoint. My only regret was not having room to try some of the desserts that are prepared by popular pastry chef Pam Sturkey.

I'm glad they've added Sunday brunch - I like eating there when I can but living in Northern Kentucky, brunch will make it easier to pop up. Some creative touches on the menu which makes it a fun experience.

Half price wine night was a good value on Thursday nights. Prices are very reasonable. I ordered the Italian special which was walleye and it was a great value at $20. All ingredients were very fresh. Ceaser Salad was very crisp and had great flavor. Everyone was very friendly and attentive.

Food and atmosphere was amazing!
Unfortunately service was not the best. Our server was on her 3rd day and was given a table of 8 on a Saturday night. One person in our parties food came AFTER the rest of the table ate, and we waited too long for drinks and refills! Not all the servers fault, just don’t understand why they would assign a large party to a newbie at a high traffic time.

I will however go back, the food and atmosphere was great! Here’s to hoping for better service!
