My patty melt was a burger on dry toast with just a mere hint of cheese and no grilled onions. The bar doesn’t have ginger ale. Isn’t that a pretty standard mixer for all bars? We won’t be returning.

We had a large group of friends who hadn’t seen each other in years. We were there for several hours and the service was great. Very attentive but not rushed. Thank you!

The server was just not good. This is one of my favorite restaurants and the poor service won’t deter me from returning. But it was really not good. And you should also know that every one who brought food to the outside tables, in the 4 hours we were there, appeared to attempt to deliver to the wrong table.

The food was over cooked. We ordered a hamburger medium rare, and another one medium. They were both cooked well done and very dry. One was supposed to be one of the better hamburger meals at full price. The other was on special. We mention to the Waiter the hamburgers were over cooked. He said he would let the manager know. Nothing happen. The water gave us the bill and did not say anything. We never saw or heard from the manager.

This was the first time that we tried a Granite City restaurant. We will never go back, and I don’t have plans to recommend it either. There are many brewery’s with much better food and service.

Breakfast buffet was good! The only thing that was a little disappointing was that the Bloody Mary didn’t seem to have much alcohol in it.

The food was good and the reason that we have been coming to Granite City Schaumburg regularly for quite a while. Our server was very pleasant and efficient. However, we were extremely uncomfortable and disappointed that the restaurant management has chosen to ignore the Illinois and Suburban Cook County mask mandates that have been in effect for the past week+ - masking all indoors whether vaccinated or not. Only one server and one bartender were masked in the entire restaurant while every customer entered masked. Our server said he was vaccinated and that his manager said it was optional for them. We have tried to support local restaurants all throughout the pandemic by dining in at least weekly. All of the other restaurants we have visited have been following the guidelines. We don't appreciate Granite City Schaumburg deciding to put us at risk when we are trying to support them. We hope they will think more about their customers in the future.

Food was great, ambiance was good too, super clean. When we got there it wasn’t that busy and yet it seems they were sitting everyone in the same area which in this day of COVID cases going up seemed unreasonable.

Service was excellent, food was brought out fast, quality was great.

Some servers are wearing mask some are not.

Food and service were outstanding. I ordered a Cherry Manhattan and they initially used regular ice when they had the whiskey ice cube. The server was kind enough to swap it out with a whiskey ice cube. Not sure what kind of glass they used but it wasn’t a whiskey glass because it was thin at the bottom where the cube barely fit in the glass. I’d encourage them to use a standard whiskey glass and cube fit the amount you pay for the cocktail.

We chose the restaurant so our husbands could try some different beers while we caught up and had dinner. The beer was fine, nothing extraordinary. The food was mediocre at best. I ordered a prime rib sandwich which came with a thin slice of slightly unrecognizable beef that hardly covered the bread. We had margaritas which did not taste like they were freshly made. Dessert was fine, definitely not made in house, but that’s OK. Our service was fine, but the table where were you were seated was not even cleaned off. I certainly expected more from the prices that are charged.

Ordered pot roast which was publicized as a specialty of GC. Worst pot roast I have ever had. Tough. Stringy. Very small and fatty pieces. Very little aujus. All for $19.

We enjoyed the pretzel sticks for an appetizer - good portion and tasted great. Our entrees were prepared to our dietary specifications and we all enjoyed our choices. Our server, Shannon, was delightful, friendly and well versed on the menu items. She helped us narrow down our beer flight choices, and all were wonderful. She was attentive without being intrusive and it was an all-around great experience. We'll look forward to visiting again when we're in the area.

Breakfast buffet is definitely not as good as it use to be. Bacon is under cooked, has brown casserole undercooked. False advertising for this location on beverages or maybe they just refused to make? Also sat in the middle of a party of atleast 30 ppl with other customers standing less than 2 feet from my table and constantly bumping into our table and making the brunch Experience even less enjoyable.

We ate early and had the only table on outside patio, so there was no noise. Phone call to adjust reservation was handled politely and professionally. Service was excellent. Minor correction to order (dressing on the side) was handled well. Food was very good. First time there, but would absolutely go again.
