Grants is the hip & fun restaurant in WH. The decor it's really unique. Rustic yet cosy. The menu it's on the seasonal side. Hearty, beautiful, creative, and yes, priced accordingly. After 10, the place turns into a high end bar. It's the place to see & be seeing. Staff is young & helpful. I always like to go for... More

The title about sums it up. Food is great, staff is very helpful, accommodating m not changes for diet or alert needs. We sat inside in the rear where it was quieter. Outside patio also lovely but too sunny for when we were there. Better for after sunset.

I love Grants. The food is ALWAYS good (I've visited many times) and the staff is always very accomodating. They even gave me a gift card once because I left my left overs then by the time I came back, they were thrown out.

I always "want" to like Grant's but I also leave disappointed. The bar are while large and beautiful is frustrating as there are rarely any waiters/waitresses which leads to long waits to get the bartender's attention. Furthermore the drinks are not made well. Nowhere close to Max Oyster or A'vert. Also - on more than one occasion I've found the... More

Our chefs take pride in following Chef Billy Grant's family recipes to pass along the amazing flavors he tasted as a child. I am so very sorry your most recent visit did not live up to our reputation for delivering a wonderful dining experience with delicious food. More

Ate lunch outside on the patio on a beautiful June day! Had the soup of the day - a sweet potato and Chorizo sausage soup - super yum! Followed by the turkey sandwich and fries - plenty of food for lunch. Great service, great options on the menu!

Took a large group (30) and the service and food were excellent. Duck was very good. Mussels were to die for. Tasted the scallops (yum!) and the trout (yum!). Really impressed with how they handled such a large group serving everyone at the same time and keeping drinks filled. Will definitely go again!

Thank goodness we had a reservation. Saturday evening and the large restaurant was crowded. Staff was cheerful, helpful & responsive. The menu was extensive and the food well prepared and delicious.
