Gorgeous setting and attentive staff. I greatly appreciate a place that has some taste and serves chilled water without ice - thank you! Tuna sandwich was really under seasoned, however.
We have been to brunch here on the weekends and really LOVED it - but the lunch selections were not very interesting and, in some cases, not well executed. The reubens were dry and didn't have much meat and the salads were dressed so lightly that one had to search for a bite with any hint of dressing. Several salads had items that were described on the menu but left off of the salads when they came.
This is one of two brunch places I like to visit when in Vancouver. This time, my friend ordered the chicken fried steak, and I had the avocado toast with a side of bacon. The chicken fried steak was served with a biscuit, and presented in a small cast iron skillet. I was surprised that it did not come with hash browns, but there was probably only room for the steak, biscuit, and gravy. I think I would have served the biscuit on the side with jam along with a little fruit. Also, my avocado toast would have been lonely without the bacon, which was laid across the top and also (unfortunately) drizzled with balsamic. It was a large plate for a single large toast. I think two smaller pieces with a little fruit on the side would have been a better presentation. Still, the service was sunny, and the food tasty. We love this venue and will return.
Great food, great service in an historical building. Not sure I rated the noise level accurately. It's a quiet place.
Initial server made experience awkward with sarcasm. One item ordered was not made correctly (missing crucial part) and we weren't offered compensation.
I am sorry that you had a less then enjoyable time with us. I would like to speak to you more about your recent experience with us. Please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thank you in advance
So lovely to be where the Grant House is located. New menu and new employees. Great service and the food was deliscious.
Thank you Leslie, See you again soon
Grant House not only managed to present a meal option for a "no salt" member of the party, but also for a "no sugar" member, while satisfying the two carnivores. Service was very prompt for a Sunday brunch with many diners outside. Food was excellent, one member stated best waffle she has ever had.
That was amazing!!! Great service, food and setting. The only downside was not seeing the owner I went to high school with. Super job Scott!!
The Grant House is always special. We take friends from out of town there to enjoy the great food and the history. We love this place.
My friend & I met for lunch. We sat outside on the deck & were served by a friendly & gracious staff, I will return soon
We look forward to your return so we can serve you again
Bright, beautiful historic home. Friendly, prompt service. Delicious food beautifully presented. We will definitely go back!! Totally worth the cost for fine dining. Thank you so much for making our evening perfect!
Great Father’s Day Brunch
Everything was wonderful except we ate outside and there needs to be cousins on the chairs. No complaints about anything other then the seats. I will definitely be back.
A little disorganized to begin with, but improved. Overall good service.
Had a wonderful Father's Day brunch on the front porch. We started with very well prepared Bloody Marys and then had the smoked trout hash with eggs, etc. Delicious and also gluten free so my wife could enjoy it as well. Between the quality food and the ambiance of the Grant House, this is one of the nicest places to dine in Vancouver.
Prices a little high for brunch menu and I felt more options would be nice---especially a la carte offerings.
Great location but very poor service and food. Waitress could have been dressed to fit location and not wearing jeans and a pony tail. Did not appreciate having a golden retriever dog at the location and walking around while we were dining. Food was not matching the price value.
We had a most delightful afternoon on the front porch, having lunch with friends and enjoying the beautiful setting and amazing food! We WILL be back!
The Eatery at the Grant House is housed in a beautiful Victorian era house in Fort Vancouver, Vancouver, WA. The place is beautiful; decor, gardens, ambiance, etc. The food is another issue. It's just mediocre at best and it comes at prices that don't reflect the quality. The coffee is actually embarrassing. With the great coffee served all around the area, including Portland just a few miles south, it should be excellent, but tepid, bitter, poor quality coffee at $5 a cup it's not acceptable. They also have very few vegetarian options.
The music was also unacceptable. Bad quality pop should never be played, particularly when the majority of the customers are willing to spend more for a lovely eating experience and happen to be 40+. I truly hope they fix all these kinks, as I would like to go back there to enjoy dining in the beautiful surroundings.
We had a delightful brunch & visit with old friends. Great food, pleasant surroundings. Thank you, we'll be back .
Our waiter was excellent and worked very hard to make the experience good. However, the restaurant has a new head chef, and the food was of poor quality, poor preparation and poor presentation. An embarrassing decline since we last fined there two years ago; embarrassing because we recommended it and arranged. For example, two of us ordered Reuben sandwiches which was, of course, described as corned beef. What we were served was over-cooked roast beef that was very fatty. I pulled my sandwich apart and trimmed away approximately 25% of the contents. We were not cautioned that it would not be corned beef when we placed our order. Further, fish and chips was a large soup bowl of French fries with 3 fried chunks of fish crammed into middle.
Sunday Brunch Delight. Ate indoors. Great menu selection. Still talking about it today. Service was timely. Food tasty. Only downside was the menu changes. The kitchen was out of dungeness crab for the crab sandwich. We were offered a ham substitute, but the price was still going to be for the crab. We opted for cod sandwich instead. Definitely will return.
Thank you for your review Carrie, we are working on finding a vendor that can get us crab again. I am glad that you enjoyed the cod though. You will need to try our clams and chorizo next. Oh so good, (served during dinner)
Took them 25 min to take our order. Waitress did not have a welcoming disposition. No smiles at all. Charged us full price for Dungeness crab Benedict even though they were out of crab and replaced it with ham. Overall not happy with the experience.
Dear anonymous, I am sorry that you were not happy with your last visit. Please contact me at email@example.com. I would like to speak with you about your last visit.
As most people have noted before, our service was slow and I wonder if they were short staffed. I had called and asked for a special table given that we were celebrating two special occasions; it didn't happen. We began to joke about the service: "do you think they had to kill the cow before they could cook our steak?" "They must be churning the cheese for the mac & cheese." etc. We were not in a hurry but even leisurely dining deserves some food now and then. Bread isn't provided. Wait staff kept apologizing for the delay, so they are very aware of how slow they are. If this restaurant is to succeed, they will have to speed up the service. The food was all very good.
Thanks for letting us know where we fell short on your visit. We were not prepared for the extra walk in's we had due to a fire in another restaurant that had to shut down for the night. This is not an excuse, just the facts. I am glad that you enjoyed the food. Please give us another try, I know you will be pleased.
Service was incredibly slow, and inattentive. Calamari Appetizer was great,the risotto and ragu lacked flavor.
Ambiance saved the meal with a stunning patio and gorgeous evening.
Poor service and food was not good, will not return.
Thank you for letting us know about your experience with on on Wednesday. By letting us know where we fell short we are able to make changes and correct issues. I would love to speak with you in more detail on your visit. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I do appreciate your time to let us know.
This is my go-to brunch spot. Varied menu, friendly , knowledgeable and attentive staff and a beautiful venue make this a warm and inviting space all year 'round. There is no better way to end or start my week.
Tamyra, Thank you for taking the time to let rate us. We take pride in our food and service and appreciate you joining us. We can't wait to see you again soon.
beautiful :-) it's part of Fort Vancouver and the views were outstanding
so glad that you enjoyed our piece of history. We are proud of the food and service as well. We hope you enjoyed your time with us.
I recommend going for happy hour or lunch rather than dinner . If you aren’t a meat eater, there is not much in the way of options. I have eaten there a number of times and find the food to be just ok and pricy. Last time I was there i ordered a mojito. Bad idea. It came in a small hi-ball glass packed with ice, one leaf of mint, not muddled, and two limes. There were four small swallows total, for $10. When I commented to the server, she said the bartender had never made them. Seriously?
The cheese rolls are yummy, as are the pickled deviled eggs. Happy hour!
It’s fun to take visitors there because of the location and beautiful building, but it will never win any culinary awards.
Thank you for taking the time to let us know where we fell short on your last visit. We have listened and made some changes. not only to our bar tender, but to the menu as well. I think that you will love the new Clam and Chorizo dish just added to our lunch and dinner menu. But if your in the mood for cheesy, the new Mac and Cheese with Bacon is to die for and yes we did keep our signature Cheese rolls on the menu. (yes they are yummy) Please give us another try and let us know what you think.
We had a business dinner. Appetizers were excellent, main course also very good. My salmon was PERFECT! No rush to turn the table. Very pleasant evening.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review Joe, It sounds like you had a spectacular experience with us. I would love to hear what we could have done to earn a 5 star review from you. Please let me know at email@example.com. Thanks again for joining us
We reserved a lunch table. It was sunny outside. We chose to sit on the wrap around porch. Soft buffalo plaid blankets were available to ward off any chill, which wasn't much. The grounds, the house, the atmosphere swept us away. The food was hot and well cooked. We chose the bacon sandwich and the Southern fried chicken sandwich. The lemonade is perfect. Fresh squeezed and yummy. Definitely coming back.
We are so glad that you were able to join us for lunch. We are excited to have you try our new menu when if rolls out in the next few weeks. I am sure that you will be very pleased.
SO VERY DISAPPOINTED!! We used to come here every so often a few years ago. We always liked everything, especially their burgers. We couldn't believe our eyes when we were handed a menu we had never seen before with the most expensive foo-foo type meals offered. Our server (who was great BTW) said the menu had changed a time or two and was poised to change again. I HOPE SO!! As nothing on the menu was even appealing compared to the great menu they used to have. I suspect they know it too since there wasn't a soul in the dining room on a Friday night which should have been prime time. So sad! This is such a shame that the chef has such a weird menu in what is a cherished historic landmark of Vancouver. Fort Vancouver is such a great place for tourists and how fun for them to eat at the Grant House...but not with the current menu. Please bring back the classics at reasonable prices. So what did we eat? We were allowed to get (a very different) burger from the lunch menu. We ate it but it wasn't the same. We also got the focaccia bread appetizer...the bread is put on a char-broil grill so it just tasted burnt (charred!). A flat top grill would have tasted much better. We are not going back until things change, but with an empty restaurant on what should have been a busy Friday night... it should be easy to understand that no one wants what they're selling.

Wonderful, relaxing place. Historic aspect was interesting. Food was alright though maybe i expected more because it was a historic place.
This place is an historic gem. Beautiful grounds and full of history. We had a great brunch. The smoked trout hash is fantastic and the house made sausage is delicious. Topped off with a couple great cocktails, and it really couldn’t have been better.
Thank you for coming in for brunch! Hope to see you again soon.
The best brunch I have ever had. Very impressed with the quality and quantity.
Awesome brunch spot in Vancouver! Can't wait to go back!
Some of the best tasting food around period. The service is impeccable and the setting is wonderful! The price is a little steep but it’s worth every penny!
Great setting, food, service and experience. Unique and delicious food pairings.
Love the Grant House!
Beautiful historic building and food preparation was solid. Service was slow and when we ordered brussel sprouts, they brought out fried broccoli without asking. Seriously slow service, took more than a half hour before someone came to our table so we could order drinks and appetizers.
