My husband and I were here with 6 friends for a Sunday brunch. We had been here before and really liked it. This time we were disappointed in the food. We had a nice big table on the patio and the service was really good. Now for the food. There were no eggs unless you waited in a long line for an omelette. There was only one person making them! What??? The bacon was undercooked and the sausage wasn’t much better. The rest was just average. I ate some things I shouldn’t have just because I had to eat something. Don’t think I’ll be coming back for brunch anymore.

Sunday Brunch -- Eggs might be good here, but didn't have them. Rest of buffet was just fair. So excited to see vegetables, since we eat all wrong in America. Most of our plate should be vegetables, some grain, maybe a fruit but with meat/protein as a "condiment". The vegetables were cauliflower, cut carrots and broccoli stems (as customers had picked out all of the broccoli fllowerettes) and they were absolutely bland, with no seasoning. Such a disappointment. And for that price?

Things began badly at greeting, where the maitre de and assistant were virtually speechless - hardly a word was spoken on the long walk to a table. Waiter was good at taking order, but invisible after. And at 6:00 pm, they were already out of the evening’s specials. And finally, they did not even bother to report our attendance on OpenTable. The personnel at this place just didn’t have any energy and it showed in the service.

Nice atmosphere, yet very loud to carry on a conversation with others. Took forever to get waited on and drinks and food. Food was not a good value for the money, nor was it very good. Had the rosemary chicken and it was way over cooked and dry. Best thing on the menu is the meatloaf but it's priced at $18 for meatloaf. It was our first trip there with two other couples and we all agreed that we wouldn't want to return.

The food was excellent but the service was awful. After we received our food our server disappeared. We didn’t see him again for 15 minutes- he finally happened to walk by so we were able to order more drinks. Then we didn’t see him again for another 10 minutes- we had to ask another worker to find our server. We would have ordered coffee & dessert but we didn’t want to wait anymore- plus he didn’t even ask if we wanted anything else!!! Right before we left one of our party went to the restroom and he saw our server chatting up one of the hostesses...I guess he had his priorities!!! Very disappointing:(

Great, extensive menu-my favorites are the flat bread, maple pepper bacon burger, beef tips, bison burgers, salads, Meatloaf… Well, you get the idea… I like just about everything on the menu!

Also love their beer flights, which gives me a chance to try four of their different craft beers.

I made a reservation for a party of 12, but it dropped off to a party of 9 once we got there... hostess checking us in seemed unhappy about that.

Server was ok... he did lack a little in the attention to our drink levels.

Food was amazing!

Good spot for brunch. I went here with my two small children (under 4). Good variety of buffet items and plenty for the kids to choose from/be happy with. Fresh fruit, eggs, cinnamon rolls, etc. Good selection for the adults too. Liked that the buffet item list is located on their website so you can check it out in advance. Decent price for brunch and kids 5 and under eat free. Server was friendly and attentive. Will return!

Our waitress, Krysta, was awesome! She was helpful with providing my friends and I great beer and food suggestions and was attentive. There were 6 of us all with separate checks (I know, I know) but she made it so easy for us to pay and had split everything exactly right. Her great service made our night even more enjoyable. Thank you! :)

My blackened Salmon Salad was great as it usually is. If you are considering it, don’t be worried about the word Blackened. If it wasn’t stated that way on the menu, I wouldn’t have known that it was blackened. Our Asian Salad seemed different than it was when Granite opened. We always enjoy the Red Cabbage in it, however, there was almost none to be found this time. Maybe a mistake, or maybe a new chef, maybe a change in the recipe. Our server must have checked with us 20 times (good).
