Grain & Cane - Bar & Table is your home for hospitality in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey. An homage to family nostalgia, our neighborhood table is built on the Connell legacy, as leading American rice and sugar cane purveyors and community idealists. Our menu features dishes that nod to family tradition, regional flare, and vibrant flavors, such as seasonal cocktails, our famous Grover Double Burger and Shrimp Tostada. Strong roots and dynamic character serve as the blueprint for a thoughtful selection of craft beers, wine, and cocktails. Vintage art and antique photographs from past Connell generations set a backdrop for a convivial atmosphere – a restaurant and bar ideal for a range of experiences, from casual occasions to magnetic celebrations. We invite you to gather around our modern table, as extended family reveling in a shared history. We hope you’ll raise a glass with us soon.

    I ordered the lunch express. There was too much salt in the chips and the sandwich, which was a turkey club…unpleasant to eat. The salad was ok, not great, the dessert overly sweet. Not my favorite meal.

    First time at the restaurant. Great design and atmosphere. Small menu but nice choices, some dishes a little pricey. Food quality was excellent and noise level was very comfortable for a early evening, middle of the week dinner. The server was very nice but without asking if we were done yet started taking away our appetizer dish that still had food on it and then lingered over us while we grabbed the last few bites. That was uncomfortable. Modification of that particular behavior should be addressed. Other than that, a good experience at a nice location.

    Great as always. We have brunch mostly every Sunday and Atef is always amazing. Thank you for being such a special waiter, always paying attention to detail and making us feel welcome. I wanted to make a suggestion and an observation. I would like to suggest adding an impossible or vegan burger to the menu. My husband along with many other patrons do not eat meat and I know you have many vegetarian and seafood options, I thought this might be considered as well, especially since you make modifications sometimes according to the seasons. My observation was with regard to the parking lot. I know it is shared with the hotel and Starbucks but there seems to be visitors that are littering and leaving garbage at the end of the parking lot closest to Grain and Cane. On Sunday, we even saw an abandoned office chair. Finally, thanks to the hostesses, wait staff, chefs and everyone else that helps to make our experience dining at your restaurant so pleasurable.

    Grain & Cane - Bar & TableResponded on July 7, 2022Thank you very much for your review of Grain and cane. Thank you very much for your great suggestions and observations, we will do our best to focus more on both of these areas. Also thank you for the kind words for Atef and the rest of the team, they will appreciate hearing your kind words. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us it is very beneficial for us. We look forward to the next time you dine with us!

    Came here a year ago and really enjoyed it. While the food this time was very good, but service was very lacking. Maybe it’s due to new staff but took a long time after seating for someone to come over for drink orders. Also got some apps but needed drink refills but waiter was not making the rounds and when he did come by to other nearby tables he never looked. Had to ask for an orange to go with the blue moon we ordered but he never came back.!Asked another waiter but he wasn’t interested in helping since it wasn’t his table. When we were done with dinner we asked for desert menu. Which was dropped off but then waiter disappeared again. When coffee came I asked for cream and sugar. He brought sugar but didn’t come back with cream for another 10 minutes. When dessert came, no forks. Took another few minutes to get that. So overall disappointed given what they charge for the meal

    Came here to celebrate a high school graduation and didn't regret it one bit. We ordered the double burger, the roasted branzino, and the primaverde pizza. The pizza was my personal favorite— the dough was soft and pillowy and the size was pretty large for the price. The branzino was a little on the expensive side, but was very well cooked. Will be coming here again in the future.

    Always such a great dining experience at G&C. The chef has continued to offer innovative and delicious dishes. We started with the Grandma pie as an appetizer. The flavors were perfect and the pizza crust was thin. We love the Asian chicken salad - great blend of different tastes and textures. Tried the duck special - should be a menu staple! Duck was not overdone and served over an interesting puree. As always the cocktails are top notch. We are fortunate to live nearby to frequent this restaurant!

    Atef was great as always. My husband and I have become regulars for Sunday brunch and we ask to be seated with Atef. He is so kind, personable and attentive. We look forward to Sunday brunch each week at Grain and Cane. Last, I thought I would make a suggestion that management might consider. The message board over the bar seems to be on repeat with about a dozen or so quotes or messages which are fun to read, but as a regular customer, I have read all of them. I thought a fun idea might be to post quotes or messages from a few of your customers about the restaurant and put their name as recognition. It might be fun especially for your repeat customers and I saw that you acknowledge birthdays with the name so why not positive quotes from customers?

    Grain & Cane - Bar & TableResponded on June 14, 2022Thank you very much for taking the time to review Grain and Cane. We are glad you enjoyed service from Atef he will appreciate you mentioning him in this review. We really like the idea of finding new creative ways to add some messages to our 'commodities board', so thank you for that suggestion. Additionally if you ever want a custom message feel free to give a hand written note to our server and we can put your message on the board. We appreciate your continued patronage during brunch!

    Friendly waitress had all our orders correct. We asked to be outside, but were placed next to a large piece of fiberglass insulation. This insulation should be covered. Food was excellent. Only at the end the waitress seemed to take a long time to process my credit card. Next time I'll ask to be seated elsewhere.
