We took out of town guests to Grant House for dinner partially because one of them is a Civil War buff who was most interested in Grant's connection with Ft. Vancouver. We thoroughly enjoyed walking around the historic area, poking around the house, looking at the exhibits, recounting Grant's career,etc. The dining area (both inside and out) is lovely and our server was very attentive and well informed. The food, however, was mediocre, at best. I had read reviews before making reservations and expected it to be fresh and creative. Instead it was predictable and, dare I say, old. I felt like several of the options we selected either had been frozen or made well in advance. We may go back again sometime just to make sure we didn't hit an off night (regular chefs gone on vacation?), but I doubt if we will ever take visiting guests with us again.

For a nice relaxed dinner, my wife and I love going to Grant House and eating on the porch on a warm evening. Great atmosphere, the food is consistently good and the prices are reasonable. The bar inside has an excellent selection of whiskeys.

We ate dinner here and enjoyed their delicious food. The service was just okay. The lady was friendly enough, but barely so. I would give the place another chance since the food was so yummy.
