This is our favorite restaurant. It's not the cheapest place, but you feel like you got your money's worth. It is NOT a Calypso where you feel like you should have gotten more for your money.

I am so glad The Grand Old House is open! I have two memories of that place.



I used to walk every day along Northward Road up to the prison and back to our house. One day this sweet dog followed me home. No matter how much I "shooed" her, she would not leave. We fed and watered her and she slept on our front stoop. We called the number on her tag numerous times with no answer, no machine. Finally we called the local vet. Come to find out she was Chef Tell's dog :o . He was off island and one of his employee's was keeping her. We felt famous Smile



I was overweight when we moved to Cayman (laugh, Celine. I know that wet suit feeling :-D) and I found Weight Watchers. I joined and then started working there. For one of our annual dinners, we were treated to Grand Old House. We had dinner on the gazebo (none of us got married) and it was absolutely wonderful! The food and atmosphere would make you want to get married if you weren't Wink .



I love this place Razz

In past years have enjoyed GOH for dinner. Just returned from GC and this year we went one day for lunch. TERRIFIC... as beautiful at lunch as dinner with a wonderful menu and accompanied by piano music. Conch fritters there are THE best...even if you don't generally care for conch fritters you will like the ones at GOH:)

Wow. My wife and I celebrated our 10th anniversary on that deck. We remember watching the waves come in against the ironshore and wondered if a big one might soak us! It was a beautiful setting. We were there a early and we were one of only three tables being served on that huge deck. It was both very romantic and a little weird. (Why aren't there more people here?)

I believe Grand Old House is the largest restaurant on the island. The Wharf is close, but I believe GOH is somewhat larger. They can have 200 people there and the place will still appear non-crowded. There are 3 dining rooms inside, 3 private gazebos, the main deck and three expansive docks. I dined there once while they were hosting a wedding reception with over 100 people and they seated us in a private gazebo which still felt very secluded. They do an extrordinary job of providing all their customers with an intimate dining experience no matter how many people they have. Wink
