Usually go Easter or Mothers Day. We had a lovely brunch. The food was excellent and the service supurb. My husband is very picky about his eggs benedict, and they made him one and brought it to the table. It is a beautiful place and is always enjoyed.

Great experience having brunch at Grand Island Mansion - it’s such a beautiful magical place and the food was lovely- especially the deserts! And it was fun getting to explore the top and lower floors as well. Can’t wait to plan another trip back.

Lovely experience, especially during pandemic times. Not our first time to have Easter brunch there. This time, the main courses were a little disappointing---overcooked, had been held too long, but we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves despite this and we left very full.
We expect to return soon. Thank you.

You can’t go wrong with brunch buffet and bottomless mimosa’s here. Try to save some room for dessert! It’s worth it. The place is beautiful to walk around and take some photos.

Our family had a wonderful time celebrating a special occasion at the Grand Island Mansion for brunch. The venue is fantastic and in such a majestic location on the delta. The staff did a wonderful job with a modified brunch menu given the current restrictions. We look forward to going back as a family!

The food menu offered for the brunch was obviously planned to suit many different tastes. We had a diner with us that preferred a vegetarian plate, and he was pleasantly surprised to see options for him. The food was well prepared and well served...delicious. The staff was attentive, professional and friendly. Would highly recommend this restaurant to even the most particular diners. And, of course, the ambience of the grounds are sure to please everyone.

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit! The grounds are fabulous, but not too stuffy! The food was absolutely yummy and the dessert tray is enough to come back again! The roads there are bumpy so glad we drove his car not my car...

We had a great time at the mansion! My daughter got married there 12 years ago, and it is kind of far away so we have only been back a couple of times. It was great to revisit the place again. It brought back so many happy memories, as the wedding was fantastic there. We were a little worried about bringing the 5 and 3 year olds, but it worked out just great! The luncheon started off with cut up fruit in a wine glass, and that kept the kids occupied until lunch arrived. They both loved the Italian Toast, while we enjoyed eggs Benedict (great!), ribs, etc. The dessert was delivered on a platter with an amazing variety! We enjoyed sharing all the different types of desserts, and the kids loved getting a bite of each. We were thrilled that they allowed us to walk around both inside and out. We enjoyed the grounds, and the kids enjoyed exploring with us. Everyone who worked there from the front desk to the servers, etc., were super friendly and conversational. We enjoyed them very much! I hope to be back sooner than later. I recommend the mansion for anyone looking for a different dining experience.

It's pricey since you only get one plate, but the experience is totally worth it. Wish they had more options for plant based eaters or other dietary options.

I reserved a brunch to GIM for my best friends’ anniversary. They had a great time & loved the food. I paid ahead - though there was a mix up and my friends paid as well - GIM made amazing & quick efforts to rectify the issue. I sincerely appreciate their customer service very much. I haven’t been to GIM myself and knowing the well care of their clients/customers motivates me for a personal visit. Thank you GIM.

We’ve always enjoyed the buffet brunch, but the full service menu choices are great too! Loved eating outdoors in a beautiful setting. We think they should continue this after the covid requirements are lifted. We highly recommend the re wine braised short ribs. Fabulous!!

I am giving 3 stars because outside dining is the new normal, but there wasn't anything in place to keep the flies away. No fans, no candles, no nets, absolutely nothing. I couldn't enjoy my meal or the environment.

The Grand Island Mansion brunch includes spectacular food, priceless ambiance and when you consider everything that is included, is a tremendous value. We arrived by boat via the Steamboat Slough, and the dock was impeccable. To get to the mansion required us to walk up some stairs and a ramp, then a pretty good walk across the road and across the grounds. We didn't care! The building, the history, the view...oh wow! Then the food and the tremendous staff! And after we finished eating, being able to stroll around the mansion at our leisure, inside and out...it was simply wonderful. There is no easy way to get to the mansion, which makes it even more special. This is not a place to go because it is convenient. It is a place to go because it is unique and wonderful. The sort of once-in-a-lifetime experience that could and should be enjoyed at least a few times a year.

We had to ask for utensils, condiments a couple of times, and remind them of a birthday I had called in earlier for, and there were hardly any vegetarian options. It was pretty annoying, although the food was pretty good in general.

Very unique place to have brunch. On the Delta's Grand Island in an old mansion built in 1917. Because of Covid and some monsoon rains, we had brunch under the wedding tent.
Food was good and plentiful. No buffet, but some nice menus items to choose from. Was given an assortment of desserts to taste from after the main course. Bottomless mimosas and coffee. Was able to tour the grounds after, including the 1st and 2nd floors of the house. Would do it again but probably after Covid when the buffet and in house dining is available. Hopefully by Thanksgiving.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time while at the Mansion for our brunch. Everyone was incredibly friendly, they were able to seat us early, and the food was delicious. The best part was the dessert platter that came with a sampling of the desserts.

Thank you for a wonderful anniversary lunch!
