Good morning David We are truly sorry for the inconvenience our unforeseen circumstances caused. We wish that we could operate without the necessity of technology, but alas the world of pen & paper and carbon copy credit card forms is a thing of the past. I truly hope that you will not hold this glitch in the system against us, as we have remedied the problem. I would love to invite you in again as a thank you for your understanding. Please feel free to reach out info@thegranthouse.us

We had the Balentine special. We had a small thin steak of so so quality. The salad appetizer was good. The fingerling potatoes and broccoline we ok but nothing special. Tje cheesecake was good. Not worth the $60 price tag even with the glass of sparkling wine. We won't be going back

Our first time to this beautiful restaurant. We loved the intimate and quiet setting. Small menu which means they aren’t churning out mass quantities. Each dish was beautifully presented. Smelled and tasted wonderful. We can’t wait to try brunch and dinner.

This was my first time here. Hostess informed me of a party in main dining room and sat us in the lounge. So much nicer. Even though they were busy, we were waited on promptly, and I appreciated how the wait staff assisted each other throughout our time there. Would come back just to peek at the rest of the historical building.

We enjoyed our experience very much. Excellent service and the food was delicious. It was a very quiet & abnormally slow night from the norm, from what the waitstaff told us. Quite an experience, to enjoy dining in a 170 year old military home.

This was our first time there. Our first interaction was the servicing staff. All staff were friendly. They were available but not intrusive. The food was wonderful, healthy and innovative. I had the grain bowl. Wonderful. The appetizer plate was great with plenty for all. We would recommend it and plan to go again.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know where we failed you on the customer service side of our restaurant. We pride ourselves on our customer service and should have been more accommodating. Given the chance for a do over, I assure you it would be handled differently. I am glad that the food met your expectations and we look forward to you returning and giving us another chance.

Although somewhat limited, everything on Grant House's menu was outstanding and delicious! We had appetizers, entrees and deserts and I'd recommend this place to ANYONE who asks!! Extremely delicious and the atmosphere is very authentic. There is a history to this place that oozes out as soon as you walk in the door. Very amazing and I'm coming back with more friends!

The historical Grant House Restaurant is located in a quaint historical preserve at Ft. Vancouver's Officer's Row. The setting lends very nicely for a business meeting inside of this 174 year old hand-hewn log building lapped with wood, which serves as a fascinating focal point for conversation for any history buff! It is evident that quality of ingredients are selected for each item that is plated, which will tempt the taste buds and treat the olfactory sense of the most discerning foodie. Today I savored a spectacularly delicious Ulysses' Reuben with garlic fries and finished with a chocolate caramel torte, which was heavenly! Our server, as well as the gracious management, took the time to ensure our meal delivered with absolute satisfaction; they were all so very kind and accommodating...I look forward to my next pleasurable dining experience at The Grant House Restaurant!

We always live the Grant House for its history and ambiance. Everything was delicious especially the red pepper tomato soup.
Only issue was that trout, which was equally as good, However with the low light it made it a difficult dish to maneuver the bones. Ended up swallowing a few.

It’s a historic place to grab a bite to eat. If you’re exploring Officer’s Row or Fort Vancouver, it’s a good stop on your travels. Food is simple, but nothing amazing or special that you can’t get anywhere else.

This was more than a meal this was an experience! The food alone was amazing we had the corn chowder which could have been a tad hotter but the flavor was phenomenal the trout cakes which were not fishy in the slightest we had the pulled pork sandwich with garlic fries and the chicken Alfredo and the salted caramel chocolate torte everything was wonderful - there were 3 of us and we shared all our choices. The surroundings were wonderful took you back in time and to top it off we were allowed to go through the house and view history

I ordered a Reuben sandwich with salad, and would have to say that the salad greens with blue cheese and toasted walnuts was the highlight. The chips served with the sandwich were warm - an extra treat! Servers were always ready with hot coffee, and happy to answer our questions on Grant House history.

The server was wonderful but my husband & I did not care for the food. We had the the white BBQ & cannot recommend it. Why, it just didn't taste very good. Skip the house kettle chips & just go buy some from the store. We won't be back.

Eatery at the Grant House

Vancouver

A very disappointing birthday dinner experience

My wife and I have birthdays a day apart. I was here for lunch with friends this summer and I was looking forward to bringing my wife here for a special occasion. We made reservations through Open Table which directed us to a 6:45 reservations. That turned out to be a little late for us on a dark evening.

There were very few guests and no table cloths at a fairly expensive restaurant. They were out of our first choices. My Caesar salad was right out of what looked like a grocery store salad kit, with sparse dressing and some pieces of dried stale bread. My wife's Brussels sprouts were dry, but passable. Her main course was chicken and dumplings with a big leg and thigh of Arkansas type chicken and cut up pieces of dough out of a pop out container of Pillsbury ready to bake rolls. It was all floating in a white tasteless broth that didn't come with a spoon until we asked for one. My Jambalaya tasted OKAY, but the presentation was so so.

The home is nicely restored and worth seeing. Perhaps breakfast would be your best option. Service was friendly, but not necessarily efficient. In spite of everything, we made it another year.

I would recommend The Grant House as it is in a nice setting. We were there for brunch. The dining room was very cold, and service was slow. Food was good (for the most part), but not anything spectacular. My daughter had the smoked chicken salad, and it barely had a few small pieces of chopped chicken on it and a plate of lettuce for $15. She NEVER complains, but this time she said "well, I don't think I will be ordering that again". The egg dishes were more plentiful.

Our server was great, the food was not. We both ordered the Alfredo and it was very sticky and not creamy at all. My 12 dollar salad was a pile of greens with a couple of raw walnuts (menu states candied) and a few chunks of blue cheese.

I did overall love this place, been wanting to go for a while. Although our party of six ended up in the rear of the house in a small room with white walls. It felt a little cold and lacking ambiance..(my designer head kicked in and i was imagining where i would place pictures etc to make it more cosy). I wished we could have been put in one of the other rooms with the deep red walls that looked far more inviting..(but maybe i should have asked..:-( )
3 of us really wanted the yummy sounding Meatloaf, but were told that they ran out (our table was for 7pm). Our server (whom we loved by the way) offered us the burger from the lunch menu which was really nice, as two of our party are big burger eaters! I opted for the chicken pasta, and although came in a big bowl and great size portion, was not my favorite! :-(
This will not stop me trying this place again..for sure..it had a magnetic draw to it, and makes me want to go back..and soon!

We enjoyed our meal at The Grant House but, there were a couple of things to note. The "crème brule" was not that at all. It was essentially pumpkin pie filling with a glazed sugar top so, when the menu say's "fruit in season crème brule" be aware. I s'pose they thought that pumpkin pie filling qualified as the "fruit in season". It didn't. However, the meat loaf was outstanding and my wife loved her chicken alfredo. The server was inexperienced at best and left out a few things that will hopefully soon become second nature. Overall, we did enjoy and will surely give it another visit.

Our dinner was burned! Bad experience. We looked forward to our dinner at The Grant House but it was a bad experience. Honestly, for being a historic landmark it needs to be an outstanding experience everytime a customer walks into the Grant House. It definitely is not a fine dining experience. It was a slow night just two other people and ourselves were there eating. No excuses!

Wonderful Luncheon
Eight of us gathered to celebrate the retirement of 3 friends and gathered in the porch room off the dining room. This allowed us to have great conversation without bothering others nor could we hear diners in the main room. The service was excellent and responsive and helpful.
We had a variety of dishes and everyone liked what they got. Especially the desert of pumpkin flavored creme brûlée was to die for along with yummy short bread cookies filled with frosting.

I was disappointed with where we were seated.
I brought a very dear friend to celebrate her 87th birthday. We were seated in the bar!!!
I’m not sure why I didn’t say anything but when they first seated us in a very tight corner of the bar, I asked to move by the window....not thinking it would have been lovely on the other part of the restaurant or there looked like a sun room or a light area looking outside at the grounds...very disappointing.
Service in the bar was poor...and the French toast with a small portion of fruit compote...for 14...it was ok...

Went for “dine the Couve month” beautiful building, our first time there, the wait staff were very polite and quickly served us although the place was not full (Friday 5.30pm). One of the dessert options on the dine the couve menu was not available but they gave us a couple of other options. The food was served quickly and was very tasty.
