This is the second time I've gone to Grants for happy hour (everyday from 4-7). The menu is great - a variety of meals/sides for $4-$6. Cocktails and wine for $6 and draft beer for $3 (including a great local beer, Sea Hag). We normally arrive pretty early and are able to get a good seat in the bar area,... More

If you are in the are, the Lobster Burger is a must try menu item at Grants. In addition to a tasty all lobster chunk burger, the house rolls tasted homemade and were delectable. Ordered this to go and it was prepared hot and fast. Definitely recommend Grants!

Friends suggested this delightful eating place for lunch on a beautiful summer day, so we were excited to be able to eat outdoors. The menu had so much to choose from ranging from small plates, salads, burgers to more involved sandwiches and entrees. We thought the prices quite reasonable, the beer and wine selection was extensive and the food delicious.... More

My friend and I were here for drinks and something simple. My friend loves their burger and so we both ordered the burgers. The portions were huge and very reasonable priced. We loved all the toppings that came with it. My friend requested the toppings to be on the side, they had no problems with that. It was all very... More

Grants has an excellent, diverse menu, and all food was prepared to perfection. Our waiter was very personable and accommodating. The atmosphere was very pleasant. It was very busy, but we had privacy and found the noise level to be low. This was one of my favorite dining experiences in the greater Hartford area.

Were were there last Saturday night. The food was great, the service was great. The Scallops were fresh as can be, there was no problem changing my meal from risotto to vegetables. Our waitress had a constant smile on her faces and was always there to fill our iced tea up. I could not think of anything that was wrong... More

Im a brunch fanatic and this place is probably the best one I've tried in hartford/west hartford area. Tried eggs benedict, red velvet waffles, steak and eggs and chicken and waffles. None are the best I've tried but all are very good. The only complaint is too much sauce on the red velvet waffle. Recommend ordering it on the side.... More

I really enjoyed dinner last night at Grants. It was a Friday, the bar was packed and the restaurant was full – a great atmosphere. Despite the crowd, service was friendly and attentive. And the food was excellent. My chopped salad was as delicious as it was huge. My wife loved her shaved brussels sprout salad too. My NY strip... More

Very slow service for a Sunday night. It took 30 minutes for our drinks order to arrive (just two of us). Our salads arrived shortly afterward and they were quite good. Then, another 30 minutes for our entrees to arrive. My wife had the scallops, weirdly prepared with curry. I ordered the ahi tuna, which arrived quite cold with a... More
