Historic Dining

COME CELEBRATE WITH US!

Valentine’s Day is Near. Chef Toppin has created a mood-setting menu expressly for the occasion which will be offered on Saturday and Tuesday evenings. Our complete menu of Gris Classics and Seasonal Selections will also be available.

In our historic dining rooms, Executive Chef Toppin prepares classic American cuisine to perfection in simple, but imaginative ways. His menu showcases fresh seafood, aged beef, and the highest quality chops and poultry. After any meal, Chef Toppin’s house-made desserts are a “must”. Our historic dining rooms exude character, charm, and tradition, where one can be as comfortable in casual attire as in “black tie.” We are open seven days a week for lunch and dinner.

“The most famous brunch in Connecticut can be found at The Griswold Inn.”

Every Sunday we serve our famous Hunt Breakfast, a bountiful spread laid out buffet-style. A dining convention started when the British commandeered the Inn during the War of 1812, our Hunt Breakfast remains a popular tradition today.

In December diners enjoy a unique and festive culinary experience: our Holiday Bill of Fare includes Seasonal Game Selections as well as Gris Classics and more “traditional” holiday favorites. There’s something for everyone’s palate! While served by costumed waitstaff the Royal Court Singers perform seasonal classics tableside! Though this experience may be enjoyed through the 30th, on December 1 only we have an added bonus: the Coast Guard Idlers, a spirited a cappella group of cadets, perform throughout the dining rooms and in our Tap Room. Our December 1 season “opener” has been a favorite tradition for the Idlers and the Gris for many, many years! Festive indeed!
