Fabulous creative food and simple dishes too. Chef Billy Grant makes ordinary eggs taste delicious at brunch. Incredibly creative with simple honest ingredients. Inside is classic, outside is see and be seen. Quite cool for a small town. Happy hour and late night have small plates which are too die for. Avoid your friends when the food comes so you... More

I had brunch here recently with family and it was lovely. We were seated outside on the patio which was a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere. The brunch menu is a little pricey but the food was delicious. I tried the crab cakes, the fritatta, shrimp and grits, and the caramelized grapefruit - yummy yummy. Good portion sizes too. Our server... More

Met my Aunt and Uncle for lunch there yesterday. I had never been to West Hartford. This restaurant is on a charming little main street that is lined with cute shops and restaurants. Parking was easy nearby in a lot. Our waitress was very good and attentive. We had the brunch menu which was a bit dated, as some things... More

I recently met friends for lunch at Grant's. Our server was friendly, efficient, and very accommodating. The atmosphere was very relaxed, and we never felt rushed. The food was excellent and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our choices. It was a perfect setting to catch up with old friends. I look forward to returning to try some of their other... More

Had a great dinner at Grants! The service was great and the food was excellent! To start we had cheeses & meats with figs. So delicious! The bread was super tasty. For dinner we had the trout with lentils and the chicken with grits. Both dishes were stellar. I topped the night off with a perfect espresso martini. It's was... More

I could n't wait to come here to celebrate our anniversary but i was disappointed. We began with a drink at the bar. the bartender did not greet us, was not friendly and did not ask for our order. We had to ask him. We sat outside which was a very nice atmosphere. The menu was limited. The food was... More

We had a very enjoyable dinner at Grants. This is a busy noise place. Service was friendly but the kitchen was slow. It didn't matter though as it gave us time to chat with our friends. They have an interesting menu. The Rhode Island calamari was among the best I've ever had. The warm beet salad was also very good.
