Six of us ordered 6 different Brunch items and all were more than pleased. We sat in a circular booth with chairs at the end and it was perfect for conversation! The ambience of both the dining room and bar was great, and the lighting just right. We had never been in this area before, and Grants was recommended by... More

We stopped in for a nice lunch with family. The food was very tasty however our waiter was difficult to find at times. I ordered the regular cheeseburger with fries and had to return the plate when I first received it because the fries were cold. In fact all three dishes that had fries had been sitting around in the... More

Great cocktails! We enjoyed the pulled pork sliders, fresh oysters and cheeseburgers- delicious. The wait staff are attentive and patient although busy with the happy hour rush.

...I went to school with the Grant brothers and Michael was and still is such a nice dude. Soooo...we visited Grants in WH because we were in the area. The décor was amazing and tasteful. The food was stupidly great. The portions were appropriate but yes the price was pretty high...and we did not have any adult beverages. I felt... More

First, this is a very expensive restaurant,and we went there with a crowd of 18 ( translate-we shelled out a lot of money). There is not one vegetarian entree or appetizer on the menu, which might be expected if this was a steak house or they specialized in seafood. When I expressed my disappointment that there were no vegetarian options,... More

We visited Grant's to celebrate a birthday party. We were a large group and had several tables placed together. We had a couple small children as well and they were served immediately rather than wait for the adults. Everyone in our group indicated they were more than pleased with their appetizers and entrees. I had the seared tuna and it... More

Who doesn't love red leather seats? AND of course the food is delicious! I always get the chopped salad Amd the fries. The happy hour is my favorite. It is probably the best deal in town! Make sure you get the burger.

We love Grants for dinner as a couple or with friends, it has a fun bar, great crowd and a fantastic dinner and lunch menu. I am fussy about the quality of my food so have tried nearly every place in town, Grants is the best with the friendliest service

Great drinks, I had the James Bond and a cucumber drink. Both fantastic. The James Bond is not for the faint of heart: Grey Goose vodka, Bombay Sapphire gin, French Wine...POW! I had the pulled pork sliders, they were fine but the sweet glazed chicken and fried risotto balls...YUMMERS! Great bartender and beautiful inside.

Sat with my kids (they're in their 20's) at the bar. We were seduced by the lively but civilized atmosphere and elected to dine right there. Menu was varied and enticing all where fairly priced. Other clientele were interesting and engaging. Staff were on top of their responsibilities providing professional service. A most enjoyable experience all around. Highly recommended.
