Description: Gram & Dun brings culinarily-driven fare, while paying special attention to pairing food with libations. It's a place "for the people" where we can relax and enjoy the neighborhood vibe while we test theories of food, drink and the evolution of good times. Our local owners and staff bring a unique, modern environment to this ideal Plaza location where we have revived the best patio in town, making Gram & Dun an enticing landmark for locals and visitors alike. In addition, Gram & Dun honors the traditional by bringing revered dishes to the forefront and adding our own special touch, and welcomes seasonality by adjusting to the natural changes our tastes succumb to as the year progresses, all in an effort to provide the best to patrons with exquisite taste. Gram & Dun: sophisticated, soulful and crafted.

I chose this location for a more "manly" Valentine couples date. Brunch was delightful, with mimosas, brunch punch and the smoky Grand Poobah of bloody Marys served tableside from a booze cart. Pork rinds, meat sticks, pickled Brussels sprouts, slab of bacon ... Yeah, it's THAT kind of bloody.)

Our table shared four delightful meals: Corned Beef Benedict, BNB (biscuits and gravy with boar meat), Burnt End Mac & Cheese and Blackened Shrimp & Grits (the gluten-free option.) While all was quite tasty, the large, tender, spicy shrimp on my plate donned the perfect amount of char. The creamiest of grits contained the ideal amount of bite complemented by the punch of jalapeno gravy.

We all left very satisfied. The size of our meals not overwhelming, and a value for the quality. The menu was succinct. Our wait staff was pleasant and eager to please. The atmosphere was buzzing without too much noise, and folks were dressed weekend casual to holiday formal ... everyone looked warm and welcome. A fine place for everyone, from couples to large groups, and families with children. Highly recommend!

I had a great experience here! Food was fantastic with fresh ingredients, careful preparation, delicious flavor and caring delivery! The atmosphere was warm and welcoming. I ate solo at the bar and had a great time. Highly recommend!

Looking at the reviews I know I should have had the pork but i got there and just couldn't resist a steak. I saw the pork wings next to me when it was to late - made a mistake. The steak was solid, good service at the bar, and a decent salad. All around 4 stars but I'll be going back to try the pig.

Fantastic food & cocktails with a staff that knows how to accommodate a large group. The outdoor patio is lovely even when it's chilly - outdoor heaters & firepits to make it feel so cozy.
The Ahi Tuna salad was amazing!

We started our meal with the house-cranked & local pig sausage plate. Gram & Dun does pork well! The ladies ordered the burnt end mac & cheese, and the gentlemen had burgers and pork chops. All the food was delicious and a great time was had by all.
