On this visit was there for lunch with a business associate. Have also been for dinner and Easter Brunch. Lunch and dinner were great. Interesting menu choices, the majority of which can be made gluten-free with eliminations or substitutions. Easter brunch wasn't so great. Selection was pretty limited, quality/taste was just OK and had to walk up and down a... More

Interesting place to eat dinner mostly for its atmosphere. Dinner was ok but bill adds up when adding alcohol. Dessert is not included and salad was an extra charge as well.

The Grant House has a great location on Officer's Row near Ft. Vancouver. A lot of history associated with the location. We went on a pleasant summer evening, and were able to sit on the patio in the back of restaurant, which was very private and quiet. The entrees were well prepared, and the service was outstanding. Very attentive, but... More

I typically give restaurants separate ratings for food, service, and ambience, then average the scores. The Grant House is a bit tough, because the ambience--wonderful parklike setting--leads to high expectations for food and service. But alas, service was just okay, though friendly enough. And likewise the food was uninspired. But you can sit on the porch if the weather's nice... More

The house is a lovely restored officer's house on Officers Row of Fort Vancouver that General Grant never lived in, but according to history visited quite often as an officer. We enjoyed the capresse stack, quinquoa salad and tomato basil soup to start. My cheese hating son was limited to the salmon or hamburger entrees as there seemed to be... More

My wife and I like to eat there for special occasions and the occasional date. If you like history or old architecture, it is really fantastic to see and I wish I had that house. The food is all good. Everything we've eaten there I'd rate good to excellent. The roasted glazed brussels sprouts are a little sweet and less... More

It's worth checking out at least once. The ambiance is what makes this place so cool. Decent Happy hour and nice outdoor seating.

My husband and I went to The Grant House for dinner with friends. It was a very nice evening and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The service was nice but we were distracted by a couple nearby who were having a very intimate dinner. The food was expensive and I felt like we were intruding on their time together.

The house is beautiful and all of the history there is incredibly fascinating. We were there for lunch and I did not find the food particularly memorable or interesting. We had the bread pudding too and that was very disappointing for me. Plus the service was really not up to par for the cost in my opinion. It wasn't bad,... More
