Great happy hour beers and appetizers.
Our meal was a huge mixed bag. My steak was undercooked, my spouses was overcooked. Our dessert was underwhelming and the appetizer was cold.
Our server was new but no one was really trying to help him out.
It was valentines weekend so we understand it is going to be busy but we didn’t wait longer for our food than expected but nothing was right. Not sure if that was the waiters fault or the kitchen.
We don’t waste food so we didn’t complain to the manager and ask for different food.
Service/food- very good, we were seated near the bar area and it was loud-mostly because of a couple of guys who likely had too much to drink.
We had a reservation for two on Open Table, arrived a little bit early and the THREE girls at the front check-in desk seemed overwhelmed & disorganized. When we checked in, they said we'd need to wait while some tables were being cleared. The next folks were told of a longer wait time, then while we were still standing there, two more parties of two walked up and got seated right away-no reservation. If we didn't step in and say something, we would probably still be standing there...that treatment left us with a bad experience. Clearly, more training needed in that area.
My husband had gotten a gift card for his birthday and wanted to share it. So we decided to go to lunch so that we could relax and enjoy each others company & be able to dine out without being rushed out the door.
Granite City was a wonderful experience and our waitress Chris R was amazing, efficient and sweet.
She gave all the time we needed to explore the menu & enjoy our choices without the rush.
Highly recommend this restaurant and ask for Chris R. You will not regret it!
Our service was great, Aaron was very attentive and helpful. He made our experience a great one.
Great choices especially for a "special" menu and very tasty food
Great service and food. Good vibe for a fun holiday!
We were there on Valentine’s Day and had the special for two. It was delicious. We were also able to get Happy Hour pricing on our cocktails. Our daughter was with so I used my birthday coupon for her meal.
I suggest making reservations as they are very busy later in the evening.
We have been here many times and the food and service is always excellent.
Food was great! I was a little disappointed in the hostess staff when we arrived as they seemed more interested in the customers on the phone and the conversations they were having with each other, that were not work related, than greeting and helping us. Our waitress was amazing!
Valentine special was excellent. Brussels sprouts were outstanding.
Very good selection of food
Our family looks forward to returning for dinner or brunch!
The setting and the service were great. Some in the group commented that though the food was good it was somewhat lacking in spice. Nice evening to catch up with friends.
We got there about 1pm at the tail end of the brunch which looked like it was sitting out for a while so they let us order off the menu. Food was great and beer exceptional. Definitely will be back soon.
We were there when it was 1/2 price appetizers (which we didn't know when we made a reservation), and the staff was working hard to keep up with the crowd. Our server did a great job of keeping our food coming. It's always a friendly atmosphere with good food and good prices and plenty of parking.
We were made to sit in Bar where it was noisy and service was little slow
It was so cold in there. Our server mentioned that he would have the heat turned up but he was just fluffing us. He wasn’t interested in his job I guess. He didn’t want to answer any of our questions about food or beer. He acted like we should already know the answer. The food is always good. I had the Asian Chicken salad. Delicious. The cheese bites as an appetizer was very odd. It tasted more like fried mashed potatoes than cheese. I won’t order that again. My husband got the Asian shrimp appetizer and it was very good. We will return because we usually get an attentive server who doesn’t mind answering questions.
Two of us had burgers and thought they were awesome. I know you can get good burgers many places, however these are the kind that you would want to come back for!
The hostess ignored my party of four even though we had a reservation, and seated four other groups ahead of us, including later reservations. We we’re finally seated in an area that should have been closed, due to below freezing gusty winds.
As always a good deal of offerings at Brunch
The Brunch was very good, excellent selection and good value.
First time here , great food. Service was good except having to ask for drink refills repeatedly. Overall good experience. Not too loud like some restaurants. Would recommend
Good food and good service
We went for brunch and it was very good. They kept many items rotated nicely, but the mini muffins were stale. Also, the mimosa offer made it sound like bottomless for 9.99, but that was not the case. Other than that it’s all a great value for the price.
So many food and drink options, everyone is able to find something they like. So glad we stopped in, can’t wait to go back again.
We had excellent food and service. The noise level was on the higher side.
Great food and service
Awesome Brunch! Great selections and quality food. Went with girlfriends 3 weeks ago, and came back for the second time yesterday with my husband and another couple.
Our server, Kyle, was amazing. He accommodated us in every way possible. And they were having a New Year's buffet we didn't know about when we made the reservation. He was funny and polite and I would go back just to sit at his booth. It was a wonderful experience.
The food was very good and the service is what we’ve experienced in the past. I would recommend this place for any occasion.
My experience at Granite City was fantastic. Our server Chris was friendly and attentive. All the food ordered was fantastic. Flavorful. Delicious. The beer cheese soup was to die for. Their Bloody Mary was also extremely enjoyable. I look forward to coming back again!
No one at the front desk when we came in to seat us. Waited a long time then I went to find someone to seat us. I had a reservation. VERY SLOW SERVICE. Never even got water. I had to ask for it. Our food wasn’t good and my drink watered down. I had said in our reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. The waitress had no idea. Just a terrible dining experience.
Very few vegetarian options for buffet brunch. Positive experience overall.
Our server was rude and looked like she hated her job. never checked out our table once and it was not even busy. She didn’t write down our order then forgot food. By the time we got our food it was room temperature. Not impressed
Fried cheese appetizer frozen in the middle. French fries also cold. Server did not give any indication of this being a problem, nor did he apologize. He did bring hot fries, but merely asked if we wanted the appetizer removed from the table when we told him they were not fully cooked.
The service could have been better, but the food was very good.
Our server Liam was fantastic! Gave personal suggestions, attentive and just a nice guy!
Missed Santa coming to tables; Christmas music during breakfast; eggs were overdone along with the French toast; no decorations in buffet area to think it was Christmas
Our server was great!
Food was great as always, but a bit chilly in there.
