One way is to to use OLEDB, read the article at http://www.codeproject.com/Articles/8500/Reading-and-Writing-Excel-using-OLEDB. You can also download the sample project there.

Another way is to use a component like Aspose.Cells, which have more control on reading and writing Excel files. Please see the example at http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/cellsnet/Exporting+Data+from+Worksheets for exporting data from Excel to DataTable and loading in a DataGridView control.

The Link uses OLEDB only.
