Harvest Restaurant Group is owned and operated by the Grabowski family. In 1996, they realized that great food was missing from New Jersey and wondered why residents should have to trek into New York City for a fine dining experience. From this notion, Trap Rock Restaurant and Brewery was born in Berkeley Heights, NJ. Trap Rock was one of the first NJ restaurants to offer locals farm-to-table comfort food with a creative twist and hand-crafted brews, too.

Since the inception of Trap Rock, Harvest Restaurants has grown to 13 restaurants, plus a catering business, and nearly 1000 employees throughout Northern and Central New Jersey. Concepts include American farm-to-table and high-end steakhouses. Harvest firmly believes that hospitality starts with its own employees where employees come first. The Harvest team lives by a set of core values that support the well-being of their staff and communities. Employees enjoy a culture in which people truly care about each other, resulting in a high level of pride, respect, and enthusiasm in everything they do.

Harvest Restaurants is one of the largest independent restaurant groups in New Jersey most known for quality, service, and atmosphere while providing its employees with tremendous career growth potential.

Giving back to the community is something Harvest Restaurants feels very strongly about. Harvest partners with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey every year on many events throughout the state. CFBNJ’s mission is to fight hunger and poverty by assisting those in need and seeking long-term solutions. Feel free to donate directly using the link below! Every November, Harvest sells their famous Pumpkin Butter Cake and the proceeds go directly to the FoodBank. Harvest is hoping to continue to go up in proceeds each year! Harvest also donates thousands of dollars annually to local charities, supporting its neighbors, and friends who are most in need.
