    The prime rib was raw. Our waitress told us that many tables were complaining about the terrible prime rib. The staff was not ready to be open. We stood and waited for omelets as they were still setting up and trying to learn how to do so for at least 15 minutes. We have had the brunch multiple times before and enjoyed it. This time was terrible! I spent $100 for the three of us with tip and regret it. Not happy! My Son's 22nd B'day brunch sucked!

    If you have not been here in a while you should try it. The food was great and the service was excellent. We liked the Monday night $6 burger special. We also liked that it was not overly noisy to hold a conversation.

    We visited for the Sunday Brunch after church. We arrived 10 minutes ahead of our reservation time and were seated immediately. The caramel rolls were brought directly to our table and they were amazing. Plenty of fresh fruit, shrimp and breakfast and lunch items. They had an omlet station and tender prime rib, as well as Eggs Benedict made to order. Just a great experience and we will be back again soon.

    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!
