Service was AWESOME. I wish I would have gotten the server's name, but she went out of her way for us. My companion had a walker and she and the serving staff were patient, gracious and very helpful.

Not too good. Our waiter seemed overwhelmed and I brought it to the manager’s attention. The manager apologized and took a % off the bill. Food was ok but not kept up with refilling.

I was disappointed. We had a reservation and got seated in the bar area versus the restaurant. The server wasn't very attentive to us either. They did honor an expired coupon which was nice! The deep fried cauliflower was really good!

Nothing special here. Your average brewery. It was very crowded and the hostesses seemed to be agitated. Had a reservation but still had to wait a while and ended up at the bar were serve was slow too. First time there and last.

The food was over seasoned and very spicy. It came cold and I ended up ordering something else. The waitress screwed up our bill with another couple. I felt the price we paid was not worth the food and service we received.

The food selection was not not as good as previous brunch as I hate curry and the Mac and Cheese was curried! It’s good value for a Sunday brunch but nothing spectacular

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!

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!

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.

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.
