Good food, good service

We visited Grant's for lunch with friends. Although the decor was uninspiring, the food was very good and the service was attentive. Their lobster burger was a superior riff on the usually boring lobster roll.

This restaurant is consistently good. The menu is altered frequently so as to take advantage of the seasons. Love the mussels as an appetizer. Lightly salter dinner rolls are special. Atmosphere and staff are excellent.

My business crew enjoyed a really good meal and got overstuffed at Grants. We had great service and the dishes were all really good. But you have to save room for dessert. We shared one with 4 people and still couldn't finish it!!

The menu is interesting and creative in spots (pork belly tacos and lobster burger). There does not seem to be a cohesive "theme" or concept to the menu..but its got something for everyone. The visual style of the menu itself is a little campy, given the prices and decor. The chopped salad is excellent although not really a chopped salad.... More

The owner is not only awesome and welcoming, he makes great food as well. I prefer the brunch over anything else

Had a really good dinner with my family at Grants. Grants is the type of place where they take service seriously while still keeping everything relaxed and not stuffy. We were there on a Saturday night at 7:30 and the restaurant was packed- all the tables as well as the bar area. The crowd seems mostly people in their 20's... More

Impeccable service, food and atmosphere! Haven't been to Grants in a few years but while visiting home for the holidays we decided to do New Years dinner here. As usual I wasn't disappointed. Great date night restaurant and environment!

Grants is located on Main Street West Hartford and has both inside and seasonal outside dining. The food is very good and basically American style. On our last visit, we enjoyed the Fettuccine and Salmon dishes along with Heirloom tomato salads. Grants is a good place to eat with family, friends or business associates.

Great service! Food was tasty. Price point good. For some reason, I remember this being a 'fancy' restaurant so I was thrown off when the menu was paper. Anyway, overall good experience.
