Walked to Grain from our hotel and glad we did! The atmosphere is great, the food was fabulous and Grain's commitment to the community is outstanding. Started with fried pickles (an indulgence for sure) followed by a salad off the bar menu and finally boneless...More

Definitely do not order the corn chowder. It tasted like a can of creamed corn with a tablespoon of salt thrown in. Turns out people had been sending it back all day but they were still serving it. Big mistake! The fish and chips were...More

Even though it's in the middle of a college town, U of D, it is also a family place. You can have a drink and some tasty food and they even have music on the weekends. The one improvement, the chairs are not all that...More

We went to Grain to listen to a performer we were interested in. The menu is not very extensive and parking is limited.

Our first visit to this bar/restaurant. Food was good and service was outstanding. Typical burger bar fare, but prepared well and decent sized portions. Salads are great.

Ordered jumbo lump crab cake was only about 1/2 inch thick and the crab meat must have been canned because it was very finely shredded. Nothing was jumbo or lump. They should be ashamed to advertise this as jumbo lump. Definitely not worth $16.50

We are in Grain 2 or more nights per week. Their food is simply outstanding. The staff is friendly and helpful. The bar staff is incredibly knowledgeable. One time I asked for a bullshot and they actually made it. Love, love, love the grain!

Undecided where to eat a late morning breakfast, we decided to try the Grain for the first. We have driven by it numerous times but thought it more of a beer place than restaurant. Since it was still breakfast, we opted for coffee; the beer...More
