We did have some issues with grub in F27 but I thought it was all fixed for GA. 
I have 
my dhcp server setup to offer BOOTAA64.EFI, which then loads grubaa64.efi and 
displays
the grub.cfg . I changed it to offer grubaa64.efi instead and it also worked. 
Here is
the snippet from my dhcpd.conf:

host mustang {
        option host-name "mustang";
        hardware ethernet 00:01:73:02:0c:cb;
        fixed-address 192.168.0.74;
        filename "BOOTAA64.EFI";
#        filename "grubaa64.efi";
}

from logs:
Feb 14 13:59:58 rhel in.tftpd[21762]: tftp: client does not accept options
Feb 14 13:59:58 rhel in.tftpd[21763]: Client 192.168.0.74 finished BOOTAA64.EFI
Feb 14 13:59:58 rhel in.tftpd[21764]: Client 192.168.0.74 finished grubaa64.efi
Feb 14 13:59:59 rhel in.tftpd[21765]: Client 192.168.0.74 finished /grub.cfg

Using only grubaa64.efi:
Feb 14 14:01:33 rhel in.tftpd[21803]: tftp: client does not accept options
Feb 14 14:01:33 rhel in.tftpd[21804]: Client 192.168.0.74 finished grubaa64.efi
Feb 14 14:01:33 rhel in.tftpd[21805]: Client 192.168.0.74 finished /grub.cfg

Are you using a mix of BOOTAA64.EFI/grubaa64.efi from different releases?
