Better Together

Great food. Great drinks. Great music.


Grain Craft Bar + Kitchen is a neighborhood gastropub that celebrates Delaware with good fresh food, craft drinks and live music in a family-friendly atmosphere.


Grain is a warm, inviting place to meet friends and enjoy a shared experience of contemporary american fare in a casual and energizing space where well-crafted food and drink happily go hand-in-hand. Featuring food creations designed by Executive Chef William Wallen, you will always find something to satisfy your appetite.

With twenty-four craft taps and over fifty in the fridge, there's no shortage of beers to choose from. With our unique "Beer Bible", you can safely explore all edges of your taste buds. Behind our two bars are bartenders who know their way around the famous crush machine, can mix a great martini or suggest one of our many wines.

Acoustic music is alive and well in Newark! Experience awesome live music Wednesday through Saturday from great local and national artists on our Dogfish Head stage. Never a cover, and always a good time. Give a listen to some of our past artists and check out who's playing next.
