Great brunch with friends from town. Lovely old building, great food and very good service. The variety of items available as well as an omelet station, carving station and pancake and waffle station makes for a great brunch.

I love the old historical feel of this place. The steak was delish, the service was excellent. Highly recommended!

I went for a weekend lunch, and had some good food - the red lentil soup was good, and I was pleasantly surprised with the turkey Reuben, which is easy for it to be dry, but at the Grain House it was juicy and delicious.

Been here quite a few times over the years for lunch, and a few times for a catered affair. My experience has always been very favorable from both a food and service perspective.
