Nice lunch!

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!

We met my sister, husband and cousin from Ireland and since we live in Seymour if was a good spot distance wise. We loved the staff and the menu was fun, with a tavern menu and full entree, we all had a great meal! I ate light, Apple salad with grilled Salmon and it was perfect, best Salmon I have... More

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.

I had heard good things about this restaurant and I have to say I was disappointed. the food was expensive and nothing extraordinary. I may be in the minority because it is always crowded but I am unlikely to go back.

I go to Grants every Tuesday for lunch. The selection is broad and all dishes are tasty and unique. I especially like that it is relatively quiet with plenty of elbow room and comfort. The owners are thinking about me; that's important.

Ok for those of us in Connecticut ,no surprise, another great dinner at one of CT's best. Started with the fried calamari - tender and cooked crisp but not burned. My wife had the trout, cooked perfect - not dried by over cooking. The vegetable side was lentil moist and very flavorful. I had the sea scallops - my comment... More

We had not been to Grant's in several years. On this visit for dinner, we could not resist being seated outside. The evening was perfect for outside dining. Our meal did not disappoint. The scallops were cooked to perfection. The trout was tender and juicy. The crab cakes were just that, crab cakes. No fillers and crumbs! Delightful. We plan... More

The service and staff were very friendly and accommodating. However, the food was very overpriced, and to be honest, not that great. My steak was $38. The portion size was generous, but frankly, I've cooked a better steak. The baked potato and cheddar bread were again, nothing more than average. The restaurant was cramped. Parking was the biggest problem. I... More
