Grand Central offers a scintillating menu of great American classics including steaks, burgers, ribs, quesadillas and hot dogs. This American-style bar and grill is one of the largest eateries in Ipswich, seating 280 guests across themed dining and bar areas. Grand Central brings the ultimate American dining experience to The Waterfront. The restaurant is packed with interesting things to look at – be it the bar, emblazoned with the names of cocktails, the graffiti wall art, or the quirky stickers and signs. The menu has been developed to ensure it is as authentic as possible, including American grill and Tex-Mex staples, while incorporating new trends from across the pond. The majority of the menu is big, burly portions (as you’d expect) but there is also a weekly changing specials menu with lighter bites.

We liked the reataurant before but since it has re-branded it is more a bar than a restaurant. Food was okay, drinks were good. Wouldn't choose this place to eat dinner, just for grabbing drinks with friends.

They weren't expecting us even though I had email confirmation of the booking. Starter was cold. Dessert was supposed to be French toast but it was actually cold brioche. Restaurant had no atmosphere. We were the only ones there....disite this we still had to wait 40 mins for food. Don't go there!
