Grant Grill has been named among the best dining in San Diego. The proud recipient of many awards and accolades, Grant Grill is also featured frequently in local, national and international news.

Highlights of past coverage include The Grant Grill Lounge being featured on The Food Network's "Best Thing I Ever Ate" Thanksgiving-inspired episode, for which food critic and Food Network personality Troy Johnson proclaimed our seasonal Smashing Pumpkin martini was "the taste of Thanksgiving in a glass." In the episode, Mixologist Jeff Josenhans showcases behind-the-scenes secrets to crafting the holiday cocktail – which has since garnered its own cult following of cocktail enthusiasts who eagerly await its annual return to the menu come Fall. Stirring quite excitement in April 2013, Kathie Lee and Hoda were spotted delivering their daily news segment on the Today Show while sipping a different Grant Grill concoction - the new Apple Martini as featured on our Raw Cocktail Menu - and affirming "that's goooood."

Though the cocktails have taken center stage in many media occasions, to be considered of the best dining in San Diego, the cuisine is always equally applauded. Highlights include a longstanding tradition of excellence with AAA’s Four Diamond rating, a nod from the Wine Spectator award of excellence, as well as our deconstructed S'mores dessert being featured on Good Morning America.
