    Caramel rolls were almost to the point of being burned. When I asked for some other ones, I was told they were all like that. But later I did see several plates of them that were perfect. Seemed to run out of certain foods. Been before to brunch & were pleased. But not this time

    Friendly staff, seated promptly. Chopped salad I had was good, French Onion soup ordered by spouse was good, but the crust was undercooked. Meatloaf I had was good, might prefer barbecue sauce on the side. The chicken pot pie for spouse that we were told would take 20 minutes took just 10 minutes. The crust was not done and pot pie contents at best was luke warm., so sent back to cook longer.

    Great job Granite City staff! What an excellent valentines special. Food was very tasty and well prepared. Nice selection of items to pick from on the special menu. Sparkling wine was not high end… but it was delicious and a great value, well worth the $10 cost. Dessert was superb… great way to end the meal. Only “complaint”, we had to take food home. Couldn’t eat it all. Bummer I had to re-experience the meal the next day for lunch! Two thumbs up. Best Valentine’s Day special in the entire area.

    The background music was much too loud - difficult to carry on a conversation. Your tactic to play loud, distracting music must be part of your strategy to turnover table more quickly. Disappointing!

    Drinks were not good. First had a perfect margarita and it didn’t even taste like a margarita and was quite sour. Asked for a mojito and it tasted like mojito mix with barely any liquor in it. Appetizer of Idaho nachos with Granite City sauce was good. Ordered the BLT tower and it came layer out on the plate and no tower…that was weird but sliders were good. Carrot cake for dessert was good. All in all the experience was decent but not good enough to go back anytime soon.

    Some of the noise level came from us -- a group of 70+ Regis girls getting together, some from out of town. Our waiter could NOT have been better - was there when we needed him, kept up with our water refills (superhydrators), gluten free and other special requests, did not bat an eye when we ordered the incredible cookie sundae - OMG - after we had eaten full meals. All in all it was great! My only criticism was the gluten free bun was not very tasty so I took the top off, but even that has a silver lining, I saved those calories for the cookie! Thanks!!

    We had the buffet, the food was warm, not hot. Server didn't seem knowledgeable. Didn't know mimosa cost, seemed more focused on larger group with cute guys. I requested a spoon to stir coffee and cups could have been larger or a carafe of coffee. I had to hunt down the check so we could pay and leave. Not a great experience, very disappointed.

    I made a reservation weeks in advance and when we got there, our wait was practically that of not having a reservation. I just didn't understand what the point of making and confirming a reservation if we were still going to have to wait as long as we did for a table. Our server's name was Marcus and he was great! We miss the omelet/egg station and were disappointed that donuts are no longer served.
