The array of food was great! Little bit of everything to cover your brunch needs. We lucked out as the mansion was not holding an event and the entire place was available to walk through.

It was my family’s first time at Brewsters and we loved it! We went on a Saturday night and they had live music which was wonderful! The ambience is great and the food is delicious!! The meals come with a nice, hearty salad as well. We loved listening to music while we enjoyed our drinks and steak! The desserts were also great and we would recommend the lemon and blueberry cake! Also the staff was very friendly and willing to make modifications for any menu item! We will definitely be coming back soon!

Our server was fantastic. Friendly, not overly attentive, but there when we needed her. We had 5 guests. 2 guests’ meals were near perfect. 3 were not. The bison burgers were overcooked, bland, the fries were sparse and not fresh. The salmon was excellent, but the carrot and asparagus garnish was cold and rubbery.

Chico
About the restaurant

Since graduating from Chico State in 1994, Jeff Dudum has dreamt of being a part of the Chico dining scene and by partnering with local Chico families he has now made that dream a reality. In 2022 he teamed up with Amanda Crammer and together they have created a vision for a dining experience that truly values the guest and strengthens community. After building a relationship with the Hotel Diamond family, they knew bringing The Grill to the Diamond was something they had to do. They are thrilled to be a part of the magic that is Downtown Chico and to create lasting memories with all of you here at The Grill!

Our mission is to bring an elevated and inviting dining experience to Downtown Chico while offering our guests unique, yet comforting classics made in-house with the freshest quality ingredients.

Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your family and Welcome to our Home!

Cheers!

Amanda Crammer & Jeff Dudum
