Service was friendly and helpful. If crumbed Lamb cutlets are available order them as they are well worth it. They were on specials list. Pork Belly was really good also and is on normal menu. In front of fire on cold night was exceptional

We enjoyed a family meal at The Grand recently. With very efficient, friendly service, good food and relaxed atmosphere we will be returning. Thanks to staff for gathering up forgotten items from our dining table and holding them till we collected them.

We had an evening meal here. Prices are fairly reasonable, but my flounder was a bit underdone and very small for the price. Menu is limited for choice. Staff were great.

We had planned a weekend in Portarlington, so booked two nights in a front room at the Grand. Beware unsuspecting guests! This is a restoration project and not for people with heart conditions or in wheelchairs. 53 steep stairs to get to your room on...More
