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

Good food and service! If you like soft pretzels, you have to try a pretzel the size of your head, smothered with cheese and crab!!! I had the Southwestern Cobb Salad, it was tasty. Had a little kick too.

in love with the food but the service is terribly slow. I’ve waited upto an hour for my food when the restaurant was half empty. UD students always say how grain is “known for its slow service” but never believed it until recently.

I must say some restaurants tend to relax and rest on their laurels, but certainly not Grain on Main. My lovely wife and I strive to sample as many venues as possible, but Grain always brings us back! Their new Summer menu is a delight...More
