Grand Finale is a beautiful old house turned into a lovely restaurant. The staff is delightful and service always seems to be friendly and fast, but not rushed. My one issue with the restaurant is the menu is very static and specials are very limited. The food is very good and it would be nice to... read more

My faithful go-to for a special 'pick me up' luncheon. Quaint atmosphere (especially in summer in the four season room). I especially love the ginger chicken and spinach crepe'. Lunch is so reasonable, you can almost go for the price of a fast food restaurant, without tipping of course. Table bases are all antique sewing machine stands, seasonal small oil... More

Introducing our young adult children to the Grand Finale Sunday brunch was so much fun. They loved the wide variety of delicious foods, plus the servers are very knowledgeable about the building, how all the Christmas decor is assembles (it must be a nightmare, but they work as a great team!). Beautiful, beautiful building.

When we decide to go out for a great meal, we discuss all the places we can go, but we inevitably decide on the Grand Finale. Why mess around when we know we can get a great meal in a romantic atmosphere with great service. Our friends say the exact same thing. This place is our favorite. Cost can be... More

We stopped in without a reservation (not required but you might want to) and were seated immediately, very happy about that. The waitress was not "chatty" which I like, very friendly but not overly chatty. Fully explained the menu and answered our questions. The atmosphere was very nice, elegant. The food did not take a long time to come and... More

Was happy to finally go again to a place I used to love. Family went on a Sunday in January 2016 about 12:30, and was surprised to find a parking spot. Great news (or so I thought)! We then found out why. The only option for Sunday brunch is now a buffet. Bummer. Oh well, no worries--the food will still... More

My in-laws take us to dinner at a nice restaurant each December. This will be at the top of our list for next year. Every bite was delicious. We started with the Scallops and Wild Mushroom Appetizer - 2 scallops, garlic mashed potatoes with a wild mushroom gravy. The scallops were cooked perfectly. Next course was soup and salads. A...

We have our girls Christmas party here every year. Love the food & service. Had the filet with crab, excellent. Carmel custard for dessert & it was rich & wonderful. Highly recommended

We had last been to the Sunday brunch buffet at Grand Finale about 20 years ago, and we still remembered it as one of those we enjoyed the most. We had wanted to return for some time but never had the opportunity until last Sunday. The price has gone up some since then (it's now $16.95) and I thought I... More

Grand Finale is always a wonderful fine dining experience whether it's dinner, lunch or Sunday Brunch. The steamed or grilled lobster tail is top notch. Chicken Ginger is unique. Their desserts are beyond wonderful! The staff is very experienced so you get the best service.
