About Us

Local history meets modern American fare.

Grain was launched in 2015 by the O’Donoghue and Mikles’ families as a desire to create a warm inviting place to meet friends and enjoy a shared experience of contemporary American fare.

The concept is a casual and energizing space where well-crafted food and drink happily go hand-in-hand.
