I just moved here and have always been a history buff and had a amazing time exploring this park. The barracks were so clean and groomed. It just rained that morning so everything was so clean and smelled fresh.. it was like going back in time. I would recommend anyone who loves history to at least drive the grounds if... More

It is not a common experience to have a fine meal in a house that was once the home an iconic leader, and here Ulysses S. Grant. What with the many American flags flying on the expansive front porch, where meals are also served in warm weather, one's dining experience is enhanced with the long history of this magnificent home...

This is an upscale restaurant that mainly caters to couples, teens, and business people. It is one of the houses on Officer's Row. They serve a variety of foods here, and they are all expensive too! It is an elegant restaurant. I ate a steak dinner there one time, and I could cut the steak with a table knife it... More

We have eaten here for lunch and dinner, but most recently have been going for Happy Hour. They have an interesting menu for which ever choice of dining you choose. Happy Hour is only available in the bar which has very limited seating.

My wife and I toured the old airfield and the surrounding military barracks--wonderful walking with many trees and lawns (parade fields). We then went to Grant House for drinks and snacks. The bar is well stocked with good service and good music on some evenings. We liked it so much we called friends at a downtown hotel to join us... More

One word... boring! So so food and service. Uninteresting Spaghetti Factory decor. Nice that there is so much history in the building and surrounding area, otherwise there isn't any there there.

U S Grant served at the fort but never lived in this house. It was named for him afterwards. The house is now an upscale eatery with many fine wines. We ate sandwiches and fries and then played with kids on the lawn. I would have rated this as a restaurant rather than an attraction.
