Server was friendly and food came out quickly. They forgot our soup order but not the end of the world. Ordered a burger medium but came out well done. Also the kettle chips were simply regular chips from a grocery store bag.

Food was really good , they have been struggling In the food department lately . We use to go every other week but the food has been subpar, so hopefully they have turned things around.

Server was great ! No issue at all with him. The problem was how long it took to get the pasta - and let’s face it pasta is cheap - so when you bring out a child size bowl and serving of pasta for an all you can eat pasta night …..we’ll needless to say was very disappointed! Food was flavorful - but really work on the serving size and save your servers time and effort for an all you can ! Also the time between the entree was absolutely frustrating! - arrived at 630 for reservation and left after 830 - not because we are slow eaters and enjoying the ambiance- because of the time it took to bring the entree.

Service was awful
Waitress never came back after bringing our drink until myself was done eating. My husband was still waiting for pickles that they never brought. Paid $3 for a drink that was never refilled so I had nothing to drink with my food.
Worst service we have ever had.
They charged us for spicy mayonnaise and we didn’t ask for it. Waitress argues with us and never came back with bill correction. We just left the $$ for the bill and tip. Very frustrating. Ate there twice over the weekend and eat there weekly on burger night. Not sure we will be back.

Food was good. Waitress was good. Food was slower than normal to come to the table and we had salads and soup! The waitress did bring our child his pizza quickly. He was done eating before the remainder of our order arrived.

I always love granite city and their food. This time I had the pot roast and was disappointed in the way they cooked the carrots. The carrots were undercooked and tough. I expected them to be roasted and a bit softer. Other than this, everything was delicious and the service was very good. I will be back to try something different next time.

This was our first time doing the brunch. It was AMAZING, 100/10 would recommend. From the selection of foods, to the staff at the creation stations, it was so spectacular. We only had one hitch, and that was our waitress completely ignoring us & leaving us sitting for 30 minutes after we asked for our check. We had to flag down another waitress so we could pay.

Food is above average, the gentlemen who cook the made to order omelets and benedicts are the high lite of the brunch.
The mimosa are a big hit also.

We were in a booth near the bar. The music was very loud. It was difficult to hold a conversation.
Otherwise, the service and food were excellent, as always.

5 meals were ordered. 3 of the 5 were great. 2 orders of mani mahi tacos were not good. I would suggest this dish needs to be redone. It’s says cilantro lime slaw, well it was just dried cabbage. It came with one skinny long piece of fish.

3 of us ordered fries, 1 of the fries was so heavily seasoned/salted it was not edible.

Not sure if I would return back as there are plenty of other places to eat.

We love Granite City and eat here often. This time, we were offered a booth near the bar. The restaurant didn’t seem very busy (especially in the area where we were seated) and there were 2 people working the bar, but it took a ridiculously long time for us to see our waitperson. After we ordered drinks, it took another ridiculously long time for us to be approached to order. For the first time ever at Granite City, we considered leaving to eat at another restaurant. By the time we ordered our drinks, we knew that we’d best order our appetizers and meal at once so we wouldn’t have to endure another long wait. The waitperson asked if we wanted our appetizers before the main dishes, and we said yes.
We waited a long time for our food, and our meal came before our appetizers (clam chowder and sliders). The person who brought our appetizers apologized for the mix-up and said they would comp our appetizers, which was nice.
We were happy to have a booth, but a little disappointed in the service. We never expected to have such sub-par service at a restaurant we love. The food and drinks were great, though. The quality was there.
We’ll definitely be back and we hope to have a better experience next time.

For years, we have been meeting another couple here at least once a month. Last night (as with other places) the restaurant was very understaffed, but all the employees tried their best. Probably a new chef because the side order of asparagus was very skimpy. We mentioned this to our server who brought more (being creatures of habit we almost order asparagus so we knew the amount we'd been served in the past). Of course we'll continue to go there weathering this post-covid as best everyone can.

Our waitress was outstanding.! Food was above average for a Sunday buffet. Prime rib was way under cooked. It was almost raw. I know this cut is best at slightly red to pink...this was not where close. Even the server was apologizing for the doneness. Wish he would have returned it to the kitchen for better cut/cook of such a wonderful cut of meat since he knew it didn't represent the restaurant well.

Love the Sunday brunch buffet here! The price is quite high but they do offer a lot of food and kids eat free. I just can't eat that much at any buffet so I don't ever feel like I get the full value out of the high cost. The chefs at the prime rib & omelet station were amazing and so helpful!

It was great. Nice booth. Attentive service. Good food. My only disappointment was the classic side of “Kettle Chips” with my burger. They were just ruffles-type potato chips. Nothing kettle about them. I expected at least kettle chips like I buy at the store, or pub chips like at other grill restaurants. Nope. Just wavy regular potato chips. But I learned for next time.

Justin is an amazing manager & I always appreciate his positive energy he brings, even if a day like today didn't go like he would like. His energy alone makes the mistakes show we're all human, but... How do we fix this? And he did with zero hesitation!
