Set the stage for each and every dining experience by selecting the perfect table tops and bases for your establishment. From upscale eateries and bars to fast casual restaurants and cafeteria service, the tables you use not only provide a place for dining, but also contribute to your establishment's overall atmosphere.
Table tops are available in a variety of materials and finishes. From upscale granite to everyday laminate, there are numerous indoor and outdoor solutions to complete the dining experience. Wood and wood-look tabletops offer a very traditional look in any dining establishment. Conversely, stone tabletops bring a modern edge to the table. Powder coated steel table tops are great for outdoor areas and other ultra-casual establishment with a no-frills look and durable design.
Most restaurants stick to the basics when it comes to table top shapes - round, square, and rectangular. Each shape has its own advantages as well as space considerations.

From a stable round base to a versatile cross base, a contemporary square base to a sturdy end base, table base options are endless. Most table bases feature a 3" column. For larger, heavier table tops, a base with a 4" column is recommended to hold the additional weight.
Table bases are available with several features to increase the convenience of the table itself, and the enjoyment of your guests.
When determining the correct base for your table top, it is important to consider the size, weight, and shape of the table top.

Please Note: These are minimum recommendations for our table tops and our bases. If your table tops are unusually thick and/or heavy, we recommend choosing a base at least two sizes larger than the minimum, along with a 4" column. We do not recommend attaching any table top larger than 30" round or square to a bar height table base.
