Bad experience as service was slow and waitress inattentive. Took 1/2 to get a beverage and were finally told the bar was backed up
However very few diners were even in the place at 7:00 on a Saturday night. When items weren’t delivered correctly took very long to get attention of waitress again. After the 2nd request went back to kitchen area to find someone. Meat not cooked to specifications. Thankfully it was returned to kitchen and fixed and manager took it entirely off bill which was nice. Way too long 2 hrs to have a meal of burger, salad for 4.

Sirens was warm, welcoming, and professional. The food was good, but unremarkable. We understand the Sunday Brunch is the best, but we have not tried yet. We will.

Lunch specials are good
Service was great
There were 6 of us-we let the server know we were on a time crunch and he did an awesome job getting us taken care of!

I would recommend Granite City for dinner but definitely don't waste your money on Sunday brunch. I have had better brunch options at much cheaper places. Lydia at the bar always makes our visit special so we will be back but only for dinner!

The AHI Tuna was way overcooked (well done vs. pan seared). Other food served to fellow diners was very good.

We enjoyed our first trip to Granite City. The food was delicious and the beer was quite tasty (could have been colder). Thg he only mild complaint that we had was, it wasnt exactly cool inside. It however, was very hot outside that day. Overall we had a great dinner, we were just a little warm.

Tables were sticky and ants were on them. Like the food, but that isn’t acceptable.

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS! The manager, Eric Curry, personally had a carry-out sandwich prepared for my disabled husband. Although Granite City Restaurant was very busy, Mr Curry asked how I wanted the sandwich to be specifically created. I definitely will tell my friends and family about the wonderful customer service. I will definitely continue to go to Granite City. Hopefully my husband will be able to accompany me!

We had reservations for 6 on 7/3, after the dinner rush at 7:15. Server was ok but we were dining with 3 kids and didn’t get our food for an hour. Food was just ok. I’d been there before and was disappointed.

My son and I ordered two different steaks both medium. His was cooked perfectly, mine a little well done. Tasted good, potatoes were also very good.

Food and beer were excellent. Our server had great recommendations and was very attentive. Portions are HUGE, so share! Beer flight was a great size and beer is delicious. Very smooth IPAs. The only suggestion is whatever they clean the tables with feels sticky, may want to try something new there .

Coco Loco chicken sandwich was great and so was the coconut and macadamia bread pudding.
I did see a guy doing card tricks at a table, which I thought was a bit odd and cards on the ceiling but he didn’t bother me so dinner was great.

While there were many tables occupied, it was not the case that every table was filled, so it did not seem 'overcrowded' or 'jammed'. The food was delicious, as expected, meeting the menu's descriptions and the service was acceptable, being a busy time.

We had reservations for Mother’s Day, and expected it to be busy so we arrived 15 minutes early,but the host station was chaotic. Three other parties of similar number with reservations for the same time that arrived after us were seated first, even though we had checked in early. The server was nice and as attentive as she could be given she looked to be working two sections. Honestly the best part was the magician that came around to the tables to entertain the kids while we waited for our food.

The cooked to order was terribly backed up which caused the other food to get cold before actually getting back to the table to eat. The buffet line was hard to maneuver around and food was spilled on the floor making it difficult not to fall. Too crowded and poorly staffed.

We scheduled our dinner on April 27 and that happened to coincide with Prom Night. The entrance area was packed with patrons waiting for a table and because of that we were not seated for our 7pm reservation until 7:20pm. Food was good. I had the Asian Chicken Salad and my wife had the Steak Salad. I love this place for business lunches.

We had dinner at Granite City on Sunday evening. We made reservations on Open Table, confirmed with the host that we had a reservation on Open Table and was seated. We received an email 15 minutes after we were seated that our reservation was cancelled. We spoke to the host upon leaving the restaurant and he stated that they had no reservation for us. This is the same gentleman that confirmed our reservation when we were seated. He stated that we should contact the restaurant direct the next time. We contacted Open Table and the gave us credit for the reservation - Thank You!
For the food at Granite City, most of their menu items are very high calorie. Sticking to a 2,000 calorie per day diet, choices are somewhat limited. Our food was delivered in a timely manner and our service was average. Not sure if we will be back, given all of the choices available on the North side.
