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...

Server was good but not attentive and the restaurant wasn’t full
Salmon was over cooked
Price was high for what we got
Sides were small so had to ask to be refilled
Couldn’t order off menu

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.

Great service by Autumn. Felt bad for her, because they were out of 3 beers we wanted to try, so we had liquor...at a brewery! They were also out of all 3 flatbreads pizzas. The slider burgers were dry and buns not very fresh and very few fries, but the pot pie and bacon quesadilla were delicious. This was our first time at Granite City.

The server we had was fairly new with a 7 table section during peak brunch hours. Flight of beer wasn’t described, would have ordered a growler to go if I knew the name of what I was drinking. He was very nice, but definitely overwhelmed.

I asked to have seat to view the Titans game and I couldn’t have asked for better seat if I chose it myself. The waiter we had was amazing again. We had him last time we were here. Unsure of his name but possibly Spanish or Portuguese gentleman. He makes the already awesome dining experience for brunch to an truly amazing experience. If there is something other than remarkable that would be him!!
Of course everyone that you see is always making sure all the customers are being taken care of. We were lucky enough to get our waiter.
Your good is always amazing and lil different each time. That’s what makes this place amazing place and I recommend it to all our friends

Not a family friendly venue. Staff were unwilling to accommodate our 10 month old, and would only offer a strapless booster seat for a booth table, which of course didn’t work. We did have 5 adults. It seemed that they cannot accommodate more than 4 adults with a baby. We dine out all the time with our child, and this has never been an issue elsewhere. Food was okay, but one meal was brought out 10 minutes after the others. One meal had the smallest portion of cold fries you could imagine. Might go back, but probably not.

We had a reservation, placed our orders, and then waited over an hour for food that never came. We each had 2 drinks, our server repeatedly told us a manager was going to come over, which never happened. After the over an hour wait and not getting our food, we decided to leave. We were charged full price for our drinks and didn’t get any acknowledgment of the situation. Very very disappointing.

They were out of iced tea due to shipment issues. I ordered water instead. Our server never came by and refilled our water. I made a reservation but sadly the restaurant was practically empty. I have always liked Granite City and will give it another try.

On the website it seemed to say that you get a bottle of Wyclif Champagne for 9.99 but it is 9.99 per person.

The Jambalaya was dry. I cook Cajun often and compare my cooking to others.

There was no desert station which was disappointing, but our waiter brought us cinnamon buns which was nice.

They should go to Mere Bulles and see what a real brunch looks like.

Our waiter was awesome. Adon I think was his name.

My husband is a brew judge and was disappointed in their selection.

We went with two other friends, so all in all it was a good experience despite the lack of brunch choices.

Would not recommend for brunch but for dinner it is nice.

Our waitress, Holly, was excellent. Very friendly and efficient without hovering over us. We arrived early at 4:30 to avoid the busy time. Nice and quiet until about 6 30 then it became quite noisy, difficult to have a conversation. Still a great evening and will go back often.

Hands down my favorite brunch in Franklin or Nashville. Granite City has it all at the best prices. The food is outstanding and service sets the bar for every other place to achieve. I was raised in Franklin and lived there for 40 years but moved to Florida 6 years ago. Every time I come home to see family I plan a trip here for brunch. Their infinite mimosas and endless bar of food is unmatched by any other restaurant in and anywhere near here.

We had a reservation of 6 people for 7. We arrived about 15 minutes early and they had our table ready for us! Appetizers, drinks, and entrees were great. Our server seemed really busy, but when we did catch her to ask for something she’d come right back with it. We had a good time and would definitely visit again 😊

As usual, Beer Soup was wonderful. Tried the BLT and was not very satisfied. Way too much lettuce, all bacon shifted to one side and the other side was cut way small. Will probably come back as I like the value, but the BLT mistake will not be repeated.
