We had a reservation for 5:30pm on April 13th 2019 for 9 people. We showed up and checked in and the front desk workers were absolutely rude! The proceeded to keep telling us our tables are here but they have to set them up. We waited 10mins and checked on our table again. They told us they are waiting for chairs because we had a table for 10, we told them we are just a party of 9 and 5:30pm. She told us ohhh okay then I should get you seated soon. Now the other front desk workers are talking about customers and being very inappropriate. Finally it is 5:50pm and we go up again and say is our tables ready yet? Oh ummmm I thought they sat you. Now it is almost 6pm and they are just now seating us. We got seated and our waitress was wonderful she saved our experience at this restaurant and made our night great!

The Easter egg hunt was suppose to start at 11 we were told we could leave and come back so our kids wouldn’t be a nuisance. We got back after 30 mins to find out that they had already done it. It was only 10:45 at that point :( I took the morning off to be at this event as I work every weekend and was the only thing I was able to do with my kids. All the manager could tell me was that they decided to do it early bc a 7 person table asked them to do so. Even though we asked this manager specifically if we could come back. This was rude and Having to tell a 3 year old she can’t collect eggs after making her bag and being told she could didn’t make for a fun afternoon.

Took about 45 minutes for wings and fries. They were at the end of their night and plenty of empty tables, so they weren’t busy. By the time I got my food, it was literally chicken strips with sauce, not my style of wings but it could be someone else’s. Then I didn’t see my server for 30 minutes, which I realized was because he was the closer so I tried to get the attention of two other servers, both ignored me! The manager took the food off the bill which I appreciate and the purpose of the overall 3 star. They do have good water!

Food was really yummy. It was a busy time for brunch so the reservation didn't seem to matter much but it wasn't a super long wait after reservation time. Staff seemed a little frenzied but nice. They all kind of looked like they just rolled out of bed with bedhead but maybe it was a long night the night before. Food was great and made up for any missteps.

Our Open Table reservation did us absolutely no good. We waited at least 15-20 min after our reservation time and were seated on a first come, first served basis. There were a lot of open tables when we were seated so they must have been short-staffed. The food was okay but definitely over-priced. Not a great experience or a completely horrible one either. We will probably try it again in hopes that this was not a typical experience.

We have been going to Granite City for several years. I especially like the Sunday brunch, which is outstanding. However, Granite City has a new menu and it really is outstanding. I have tried two of the items, actually three because I had part of my wife's. The addition of these items, on a page that seems to be low calorie, was a very good decision. The beers, as always, are excellent. It is VERY helpful to be able to book a reservation on line and avoid waiting.

I'll be honest, I was a bit disappointed yesterday with the brunch. It seems with the changes, that there are less options now. Prime rib was way overcooked and I didn't care for the pasta options or the shrimp cocktail sauce. I will still go back but I hope they make a few changes :)

We had dinner here on a snowy evening in February. The restaurant is located in the Legends Shopping Center across the street from Nebraska Furniture Mart. We were staying at the Holiday Inn Express close by; so this restaurant was a good close choice due to the bad weather. The place was not crowded when we arrived, so we were seated immediately in a booth in the bar area. They do have a large dining area that is separate, but the bar area was fine with us. The place did fill up with customers over the next hour, which is a testament to its popularity (and location) given how bad the roads were. The have many microbrew choices and I tried The Hustle which was a relatively new creation and it was excellent. For an appetizer, we had the Onion Ring Tower (very good). My wife had the Crispy Shrimp Tacos and I had the Major Miso Chicken and Pork. Both were very good. We decided to take dessert back to the hotel for later and ordered the Salted Caramel Tart and Mini Berry Cheesecake to go. Both were very good. Our server (Jennifer) was very pleasant and helpful with menu choices. We would recommend Granite City for lunch or dinner if you are visiting NFM, Legends or the Speedway.

I like the omelet bar and my daughters enjoyed the donut bar. We all love the hash brown casserole and mashed potatoes. We did miss the salads they normally have. I thought the mimosas were very reasonably priced. We got there at 9am and they weren’t quite prepared though. We had to ask for serving utensils for certain stations.

We made a reservation for a large family gathering and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. We had three little ones and the selection on the children's menu made them very happy.

This was the first time I had been to a GC for Sunday brunch. I had been to a different location for lunch and once for dinner and thought it was an okay experience - you know nothing to write home about. BUT - brunch? They have it figured out. The food was excellent with a great variety including an omelette bar, meat slicing stop and a donut station. They kept everything full, fresh and hot.
