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.

First time at Grain & Cane (for Mother’s Day Brunch)— had a great time! Food was delicious, atmosphere is great. Sat at an indoor/outdoor table — entire group enjoyed the experience. Will be returning.

A hidden gem. Glad I found it. I started looking for a place where I can park easily and walk to the restaurant. This place worked out perfect. It’s located inside a hotel with a main porch. So getting your Kids in and out on a rainy day is no problem.
The quality of food blew me away. The service staff was fun the ambience was great. Definitely recommend for weekend brunch or dinners.

The lobster roll was the star. Burger was great too.

Special mention of the hostess. Very efficient and energetic.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE PLACE.

Celebrated my mom for Mother’s Day a week early due to my absence on actual day. Appetizers as if they had been reheated one too many times. It was our first time there. Not sure if it was just a fluke, and haven’t yet decided if I care to give it another shot.

Beautiful setting. Nice drink menu and interesting bar area.
Burger is delicious. Had French onion soup - a little too sweet and way too many onions. Blonde for desert very good.
I would go here again. Lovely outside area

I had made a reservation and requested to be at a booth. We were initially seated at a table in the middle of the floor which wasn’t what we had in mind. I asked if we could be seated at a booth for more privacy and we were sat a booth but right next to a large table of people. Overall the experience was nice but I wish we were sat at a more scenic area of the restaurant since we had a reservation... we also asked if we could be seated outside and but were told it was reserved...meanwhile online it says outside seating is first come first served?! Kinda annoying but overall the food was lovely.

The food was good. I've tried the meatballs and ricotta as well as the pizza. Cool vibe but too lit up for a romantic dinner. There is an outside dining space with a big fire table-which I would like to try. Worth a try.

Our "Go-To" date night spot never fails. We love the food, great service and clean, COVID-friendly safety (spacing of tables, high ceilings, online menu, etc). Their flatbreads are a must-have and seriously, if you haven't tried the Grover Burger, you are missing out. Great salad and other options too.

We were staying in the hotel and we’re very happy to find an excellent restaurant in the hotel. We enjoyed some cocktails and wine and had a great meal. The hummus verde was excellent and inspired us to try making something similar at home. The Caesar salad, onion soup, meatballs, and pizza were all very good as well.
The restaurant itself was very thoughtfully decorated with various seating options: booths, leather couches, and regular tables. Everything looked comfortable and was generally very well decorated. Would absolutely eat here again if I was in the area.

We enjoy the spacing at Grain and Cane, I had wished my drink was more old school than deconstructed fanciful but it was drinkable. I’ll know for next time. Menu is limited which is understandable during these times. What we did choose was tasty. Our waitress was friendly and flexible.

I have been to Grain and Cane a number of times and each visit blows me away. From being greeting at the host stand to top notch service of their experienced waiters. The cocktail menu changed since I last went a few months ago we loved our Berry Smash it was perfect for valentines day! Our apps were great, we can never pass up on their chicken pops! Out of all of our visits to G&C we never tried their pizza until this week and WOW the dough was so fresh and the mozzarella tasted like it was made that day! For dinner we split the grover's double, they even cut the burger in half and put it on 2 plates with our own side of fries, we all know how messy cutting a double Pattie burger in half can be so thank you chef! I felt very safe, everyone wearing masks and the tables distanced. Will be back soon!
