Had a 6:45pm reservation and had to wait 15 minutes longer. Once we were seated the service was great and the food was great thanks to Corrine who was our server.

Saturday night of Valentine’s weekend and extremely busy. It took a long time to get our drinks and our food. When the food arrived, my wife’s order was good, but my steak was cold and I got red potatoes instead of the fries I had requested. I pointed this out and was told they would get me an order of fries. I was nearly done eating the rest of my meal when I got the fries, and I only got them after I asked about them. The manager was very apologetic about the service and comped our drinks. We have eaten at this restaurant many times, and while it can be busy on the weekends, we have always gotten very good service and been very satisfied with the food. I am looking at this as an exception and will go back again.

Took my parents out for their 40th anniversary dinner, dad proposed for a 2nd time to spend another 40 years together. It was awesome. Also, glad that we had a reservation, it was CRAZY busy, no place to sit and wait for our table and having two small kids that was a huge challenge. Kitchen was busy, food was good.

Overall average experience that you would expect from a suburban chain restaurant. Dinner “reservation” is more of a pre-wait list, better than just showing up, but still a lot of waiting for a table. Did the Valentine’s dinner special, really good selections in the fixed menu. Medium rare steak was on the well side of medium well, but still very tasty and tender. Again, overall average on a busy Friday night.

We made a reservation via Open Table, however we were still asked to wait about 10 minutes since they didn't have any tables available even though we arrived on time. Overall the food and service were good. Note that Granite City had filed for bankruptcy in Dec 2019 but was still operating.

We went for an early Valentine’s Day celebration. Our server was awesome but the food was not great ( quality of the steak, over salted stir fry, greasy fish and chips). The restaurant has become rather dirty and desperately needs a remodel. No need to spend money there again. There are so many better choices in the area.

This place is large enough that we can usually get a reservation on the same day. We have been seated immediately every time.

Granite City is always a good stop for our family. A lot of menu options and they are all good. We really enjoy the breadth of offerings as we have a widely divergent set of tastes in our family.

We were sat in the back next to a large group of women who were either catching up or celebrating. They were quite loud so we had to shout to one another to converse. For a business reservation, I would have hoped the restaurant would’ve planned differently.

We got sat 35 mins after our reservation. Granted they were very busy. I went to check after 20 and she said they were just cleaning the table off. 15 mins later I had to go up and ask again if we were going to be seated soon and then they sat us.

The Sunday brunch is great, something for every craving! So much variety available on the buffet and at the custom stations (omelettes, eggs benedict, doughnut). Service has always been top notch.

Even during a huge snowstorm, when any other server would rather be home we had the most personal and genuine experience tonight! Food and drinks were great as always but the personal touch from our server and manager were top notch!

We enjoyed our experience. Only waited a few minutes past our reservation time. Our group ordered shrimp tacos, spicy chicken sandwich, a burger and a steak. All were great. Ordered a variety of specialty drinks, beer and cider, enjoyable. Not as noisy as I had feared. Our server was nice and prompt. My only complaints were the parking lot is too small and although we found a close spot, someone else in our group had to park quite a distance away. We penguin walked over quite a bit of ice in the lot - clean that up! Thanks for a fun night.

Enjoyable dinner- we had a table right next to the brewery tanks, which gave an authentic vibe. Love how they let you sample the different beers before ordering. Great prices on the beer and cocktails, i think.
Drinks were great- I really recommend their fresh homemade brewed beers as well as other “guest” beers featured on the menu.
Menu is cute, organized, and gives calorie counts.
Food was delicious, everyone of my party of 5 enjoyed our meals.
The service was great, food could have come faster - it took 30 minutes or so. Was a busy night though, so must be a popular place in the area + our drinks held us over for that time.

We were victims of some sort of kitchen glitch that slowed the delivery of our order. The server apologetically explained the situation, a manager came by and adjusted the price of our meal - to zero, the food was finally delivered and was delicious.
It was a beautiful example of "save the day" by the Granite City people and I will not hesitate to dine there again.

My family loves Granite City and we visit somewhat regularly. A few things I've noticed over the last few visits:
1. Your menu is out of control. Way too many items to choose from. The best restaurants only serve a few items from each category. There is no way that you can make all of those items and do it well. Also, in my experience in restaurants, its slows down the kitchen. Shrink the menu!
3. Offer a daily special. In addition to the seasonal beer/food menu.
2. You need more servers. You have a great team, but it is very apparent that they are stretched too thin. If they spent more time with their tables, the level of service goes up, along with your sales and bottom line.
3. You have only recently started placing growlers on the tables. Nobody has EVER offered us a growler to take home. What a great way to get people to come back!

Just my 2 cents.

It was ok. Lots of potato based items and bread items. Poached eggs were good but inconsistent. Some were runny. Some were hard.

My husband ordered off the menu and his food was good. I had the Christmas Eve buffet and the food was average. The buffet wasn't kept well stocked. Missed out on more mashed potatoes and the salmon because it took so long for them to refill. Also, the desserts trays were empty for a long time before refilling. Service was average. Took a long time to get waited on and a long time to get drink refills.

I would recommend if going out with friends /family on a non holiday. But, would discourage from going on a holiday. The service was fair, drinks were not refilled until we flagged down our server. The price for the buffet was okay if you would have had a good selection of food choices. The buffet was NOT kid friendly and the food choices were awful. There was obviously very little thought of what went into planning this buffet. It’s terrible only one kid friendly food available Mac and cheese. For what we paid for for to kids we could have bought a months supply of Mac and cheese. There was not a vegetable other than a starter salad. There was vegetables mixed with food but, some people don’t like their veges covered in sauce or gravy. We’ve been to many of your buffets primarily Easter and I will say this was a complete FAIL on Granite City’s planning.
