Located at 243 S. Sierra St. in a building erected in 1940, specifically for a restaurant, is the home of a unique gathering place. The original address was 243 Granite St. hence the name…Old Granite Street Eatery.

With a menu that reflects a strong desire to provide familiar, comforting dishes having an emphasis on quality ingredients. Combined with constantly rotating craft beer selections, focused wine options and hand crafted cocktails, Old Granite Street Eatery looks to be a casual affordable everyday option for neighbors and community to share in great food and drink. We only reserve 1/3 of our restaurant through OpenTable in order to facilitate walk-in traffic. We also have a large communal table for sit-down service. Please included any children and infants in the total in your party for reservations.

We made a reservation for 6ppl on Sunday at 11am. This is only one hour after they open - but they were out of many menu items. No Avo toast, no biscuits and gravy, out of some of the beers on tap and no Baileys for Irish coffee. That's kind of crazy being that their brunch menu is not that extensive. We were pretty much left to just have omelettes which were fine... but kind of a bummer experience. Service was great. Cute spot

Mixed review on this informal eatery. I liked my salmon entree with couscous --my wife said her hamburger was overcooked, and I think she was right since it was well done and she ordered it medium rare! It certainly tasted dry. Otherwise, it seems like a nice place to come for a casual dinner, and not pricey. Maybe, the chef had an off day.

Menu changed since last visit. Very average offerings and quality. Used to have a very foodie and craft cocktail feel. Burgers, wraps and a few unimaginative entrees. Little to no atmosphere.

I used to travel regularly to Reno for work, but due to the pandemic, it's been two years. So glad to see that not only has Old Granite Street survived, but it's still serving interesting and well prepared food. The service was excellent, and our table enjoyed the Sunday appetizer specials. We didn't get photos of the beer cheese or the shishito peppers because they didn't last long enough! The only disappointment was that they sold out of the bacon chips, however the hummus was very good. I'll be back on the next trip to Reno!

We were expecting more of a French bistro so we were very surprised with the menu. For appetizers we had the shishito peppers--delicious as were the crispy chicken wings with fries. The fries were perfect and the wings nice and crispy. My brother had the fish and chips which were excellent. The batter was crunchy, crispy but after sitting on the lettuce got a little soggy. The disappointment was the drunken mussels. They were bitter and not fresh with broken shells and the focaccia with the mussels was dried out and definitely not fresh. I should have ordered one of the burgers which were the majority of the menu and looked good coming out of the kitchen. I'd go back for a burger.

Always good. I got the messiest burger and added an egg to show dominance. Client got drunken mussels and said they were great.

I’ve never had a bad time here but reservations always help.

What a mistake. The menu provided was smeared with food.

It took 10 minutes for the waitress to come to the table. She wanted us to order right then and there ( I guess she figured she had given us enough time already). Wife ordered a drink . It took another ten minutes for her to bring that.
I was watching the waitress talking with some guy at the bar.
We told her we had had enough - please bring the check.
She did - $7 for a double call whiskey.

It had been a while since we had been in....it will now be a LOT longer before we go back.

Was happy they had later reservations avaialable. The food was so-so. Ordered the pasta dish and it was watery which was weird. Didn't taste bad but was just not the consistency i was expecting. Waitress was nice and kept distance due to COVID but didn't offer dessert at end.

We have always been Granite Street Eatery fans. They do it a little bit different and the flavor combinations just work. We were a little disappointed in the reduction to the menu and main focus on burgers. We opted to try the chicken wing appetizer that was done very well with great flavors. We also shared the beer cheese burger with garlic fries and the flavors were just extreme and worked perfectly in true Granite Street style. The service was great from the time we arrived until we left, in a crazy time we felt welcomed and comfortable. We appreciated this experience and will be back soon.

Had a nice quiet patio out the back for outside seating. Service was courteous and food came pretty quickly. Really great tasting food, think they have a limited menu but I had the Black and Bleu burger and it was yummy.

Ok food but great service. Not too expensive but certainly no bargain either. Beer only in bottles.

The food was very good! The beverages were a bit pricy but that's to be expected or this part of Reno. The service was excellent and Nathan made sure we were comfortable and attended too frequently. Outside seating was nice, but there was a lingering smell of garbage that was slightly offputting. After dining, we saw the outdoor seating area is in front of the garbage cans, and on a hot day, that was not a great smell to pair with our perfect lunch. Overall I really enjoyed our meal, but next time I'll probably just sit inside.

We had a reservation for 1 hour and 45 minutes before we needed to leave for a theater performance just across the parking lot. We arrived on time and were seated promptly. We did not receive our lunches for 55 minutes - this gave us about 20 minutes to eat and run out the door to make it to the performance. Our server was wonderful - and obviously very embarrassed by two things - they were out of things (apples for a brie and apple salad, pastrami for a sandwich, a breakfast sandwich that arrived with no egg, and eventually running out of shoestring fries) and the delay in serving our lunches. He said they only had 2 people in the kitchen and had run out of food because of very busy Friday and Saturday nights. Why wasn't the manager out buying more apples and pastrami, and why wasn't the manager helping out in the kitchen??? I'm sure every restaurant has a bad day once in a while - but this seemed like something that could have been predicted and remedied. It will be a while before we return to this, one of our favorite, restaurants.

Nice variety for meat lovers and vegans. Shoe string potatoes are fabulous. Its our favorite! Excellent, reeasonably priced wine choices on the glass-wine list. Excellent service; professional, and on-top of what the table needs. You need to check out Old Granite Street if you haven't.
