Good food but definitely not social distanced or following 6 ft apart in anyway. So take out until pandemic is over

Service wasn't terrific. We asked for a side of ranch twice (2 different servers) then watched him stand in the kitchen and talk instead of bringing to us. My daughter's fries were cold by the time she go it. He brought our ticket without asking if we wanted dessert, then brought the cake without the ice cream we asked for. The alfredo was pricy considering it did not come with a salad or even a side of bread.

Daily special incomplete (meat but no side dish available. My dinner arrived cold. Sent it back. Came back fine. Of 20 mussels, 5 were unopened and should not have been served.

the meat portion on the sandwich was a little light on the roast beef and if we had to order a dessert again we would not order the iron skillet apple pie it just I don't know whether it's just poorly executed or a bad design but it's just not a very wasn't very good dessert overall the experience was adequate but not great

This was for the Sunday Brunch. The rib roast was inedible. The rest was a typical mid-level buffet. Service was good, tho, and they let us take some cinnamon rolls home. Also the decor is always nice at Granite City. Stick to the beer and sandwiches.

It was Valentine’s Day! We did the special for $44.99 and we added a bottle of sparkling Wine for $10. The atmosphere was fun and laid back. Food was delicious. We had the Idaho nachos, sirloin dinner, salmon dinner m, and a carrot cake to share. It was lol very good. The potato’s on the steak dinner was way to salty but apart from that it still had good flavor.

Flat bread - two selections was less than expected. Salmon was excellent, sans rice (with garlic mashed potatoes - very dry, needed butter or a gravy/sauce), served at our request with asparagus which was excellent and done to perfection. Wedge salad okay. Child's grilled cheese was very dry. Dessert (mini) less than expected.
Service was excellent and very accommodating.
Would we go back yes - and hope the chef was having a little bit better evening.

Great casual spot with a solid menu. Service was excellent, especially on a busy New Year's Eve. It should be easy to find something on the menu for everyone.

We were a party of 7 the food had no taste for some of us and over salted/spiced for others. Server never came back after serving the food. Our drinks were empty for over 40 minutes then when Server came back just to give us our checks and cashed us out but for some reason she could not explain why ours checks said one price but when cards were ran through it said a higher price. We will not be going back.

We had 2 parties of 6. Our server, Erin was PHENOMENAL! She was always there to answer questions, fill drinks, and check in on us. We ordered a variety of food, and there were no complaints from anyone! The mini desserts were yummy as well.

We sat at the wrong table as there was a terrible cold draft that continued to blow on us. The waitress tried to correct but it made it very uncomfortable.
Very good food, great service, just was chilly.

I think the wait staff was getting set up for the next day and they were rearranging tables and chairs the entire time. Just a bit noisy.

We had been to their Sunday Brunch in years. The Open Table reservation was the best! We were seated immediately. They appeared to be understaffed. However, our server was outstanding! Attentive, friendly and helpful. We close the brunch buffet and everything tasted good! The prime rib was especially tender and delicious.

Service was awesome. Staff very friendly
Food use to be better over a use ago seems like portion size has gotten smaller while price has gone up. Also you really should change the meatloaf dinner back to the original way it was soooo much better now it is kinda bland & garlic bread is not as good under it as the ciabatta bread was awesome with this dish.
