Their computers were down, and said they could not provide any food or service even if we paid cash. Can they not make food and add the tab up and let me pay? It is a sad day when you can't do anything, even cook without a computer.

We have always loved Granite City. We were placed in a booth that gave us no room for moving our arms for eating.
We requested to be moved to larger booth.
My fish and chips was a disappointment. 2 little pieces of fish, a tiny scrappy amount of fries that were the frozen kind a a bit of slaw. No tartar sauce and the presentation was like a fast food chain. Another dinner was Asian chicken salad but only had 3 bites of chicken and was a huge bowl of slaw. The other dinners were okay but were not as described on the menu. The poor waitress tried to explain how they had cut back but it did not satisfy our need for answers
$17.99 fir a subpar dinner is not acceptable
We will no longer dine at Granite City and that makes me sad!

It was ok. The higher entre prices did not match the quality and portion size. Portions were smallish. Lots of rice, mashed potatoes, onion strips and meager on the meat. The signature pot roast was poor.
The salmon was dried out.
Not our server, but a different one, twice delivered beverages to our table that we did not order.

We did the shrimp appetizer which was great Artichoke dip was fair. Did not come with enough chips. Our server got us more.

Our server was great. His 2nd day and managed to do well.

Diskin hard apple cider . $$ more than most places.

The booth situation is poor. Every time the person behind me moved I felt it on my back.

Open Table reservation process was great.

It's obvious that GC is facing the same labor shortage challenges being experienced by most businesses. Food was good, but not as much as in the past. Service was marginal at best, again too little to cover everyone efficiently. Prices continue to go up as well., and it was very noisy!

We had terrible service had to ask for everything twice and still Did not receive refills on coffee and drinks.
Been there many times food wasn’t up to quality it usually is. They eliminated the smoked salmon big disappointment.
Was really disappointing because it’s one of my favorite places to go. Hoping they step it up a notch.

They were only seating half of the restaurant, so everyone seemed to be sitting on top of one another, which increased the noise level. The food came to the table cold and had to be reheated. The poor server was working hard and doing his best. I had been there before, and this was not typical.

We were seated quickly, but it took 20 minutes for our waiter to come to our table. After we got our food, we realized we hadn't been given silverware. We asked our waiter for some, but after 10 minutes of waiting and food getting cold, I had to flag down someone else. My friend's salad looked like old lettuce from kroger with some lunch meat thrown on top. My husband's chicken was burnt. The fish was good. We weren't asked about refills until we'd been there for an hour and at that point we just wanted to get out of there. My cocktail was very good. Wish I could have ordered another...

We’ve eaten here several times on holidays and the food is always great. This time was different. They turkey didn’t taste fresh, the dressing was mushy and had very little flavor. Those are the main ingredients for Thanksgiving so when those are bad, it kinda makes the whole meal bad. Our server was wonderful though.

We made a reservation at Granite City for dinner. We ordered two small regular spirit drinks with soda. After we received our drinks I saw the bartender heading to the restroom. I went to the restroom also to wash my hands before I was going to order my food. I tried to use the soap dispenser that was on the left and it was not working so I used the soap dispenser on the right which was working. The bartender came out of her restroom stall while I was still at the sink and put her hands under the soap dispenser that was not working. She knew that it wasn't working as no soap came out so she just used only water to wash her hands. I was so disguested that she was making people drinks and serving food to people with not having washed her hands properly. There was no way I could eat there after seeing that! This is how you make customers sick by not washing your hands with soap, especially after using the restroom. Water alone doesn't kill germs. After that we immediately asked for our bill for the two drinks which was $25. I thought this was very high for two small rum & cokes. Not a big deal but when we eat out they are usually more around $6 or $7. Please Granite City, train your employees better than this! I'm glad I was the one to witness it or I would've never known.

We arrived early for our reservation and we’re able to be seated with a short wait. That was awesome. We had Matt as our server and my husband and I do not think we’ve ever had a better server. Very professional but made you feel comfortable right away. Drinks came fast which was nice. Matt came by throughout the meal at the perfect times, refreshing our water and getting new drinks for us at the perfect times. Good came out fast. It was such a pleasurable experience.
