Seated right on reservation time but in the bar.. I didn’t know bar tables were reservable but it seems they are. It took quite awhile for our server to arrive but it turned out ok because the menu had quite a variety of items. Our server turned out to be excellent though thru out the evening. Food was good even though the sides were less than hot. Prices were very good and parking great. Not quite five star night but no real issues either. We would return to try some other items on the menu.. the staff members were all practicing safety guidelines and tables were well spaced.

The Prime Rib sandwiches were outstanding and our server, Tommy, was terrific. His suggestions and personal recommendations were perfect. We had a wonderful anniversary dinner. Many thanks!

We have had the Sunday Bruch at Granite City several times but this was 1st time since COVID-19. The food quality was average at with most breakfast items (bacon, eggs, etc) served at room temperature with no flavor. The carved roast beef was also cold and was mostly fat and gristle. Had to ask our server multiple times for things....very poor performance

They still offer Sunday Brunch but with a lot of modifications. You walk behind a rope and tell an employee what you would like on your plate. You must order omelettes, prime rib and specialty eggs through your server. I had to wait so long on butter, the food was cold and thrown out. On one hand it’s frustrating and wasteful but on the other I understand and appreciate the protection from the other guests hovering over the open buffet tables. The selection is smaller than before too, yet it’s still pricey. So before you begin to get a plate, be sure to ask for salt, pepper, butter, extra napkins or anything else you can think of that your server will provide so you have it available.

Buffet is okay, definitely depends on kitchen staff lately. Wait staff needs some service training.

We haven't been to Granite City in over 6 months due to quarantine. The food didn't seem up to its usual standards, but we were happy to be out so we just ate it. My husband's burger seemed smaller than usual and my fries looked and rated like freezer fries heated in a convection oven.
Also, my drink (Flying Monkey) was pretty bland. I just think that's how that particular drink tastes so I won't ever be ordering it again. My cherry coke also seemed watered down. Our appetizer (Brussels sprouts) and soups we're excellent.
Our waitress was great.
We get such a good value at Granite City and we're grateful to have a night out so we didn't complain about our food. After getting home and reflecting on our previous meals there, we realized it was below par.

Got right in at reservation time. Waiter was good. Some if the food (two of the burgers) were not warm/cheese not melted. Other food was hot. All brought out at once by someone other than our waiter.

Had reservations for a specific table due to hearing problems with 3 of us. When we arrived (early) the table had been taken just a few minutes earlier. A “Reserved” sign could & should have been used. Very disappointing as Granite City” has been our “go to” restaurant for years.

We have always liked eating at Granite City in Kc, this time around we were a little disappointed, as food was great as always, service was less then subpar. Music was loud 80’s music, felt like I was in a bar vs a fine dining establishment. Our server was not very attentive. Maybe they were still trying to figure everything out some COVID

Finally had our first big date night out since COVID and it was perfect. There was hardly anyone there, our server was very friendly and we never felt rushed at all even though we stayed longer than we expected to, due to good conversation. Food was delicious, I had the mahi tacos. Drinks were great. It was a perfect date night!

Seemed really disorganized when we got there, but I’m sure they might’ve been short staffed. The food was okay. There were a few employees who were a bit short with me and seemed fed up with me even though we weren’t seated until 12:35 with a 12:00 reservation. It seems to have gotten worse since the last time I was there. Our servers were very kind but maybe stretched thin as we didn’t see them very often.

Our waiter was excellent. It was opening night for Sporting KC and it was crowded. It took a long time to get our food, it didn’t all come at once and it was just warm. My salmon meal was excellent. The children loved their food and our waiter ordered their food early which helped keep them happy. The person who ordered the hamburger thought it was good. The rest of our party thought their meals were average.

Always wanted to try the brunch but ended up being disappointed. Shrimp and pasta were overcooked and mushy. French toast was so tough I couldn't cut through it. Prime rib was mostly fat and gristle. The only things that weren't bad were the items that weren't cooked...fruit and salad. I also enjoyed the cinnamon rolls. Definitely not worth the money I paid. They brought my bloody Mary without the garnish. Then I was told they made another drink with the garnish which seemed like a plan to get me to buy another drink. Daughter's pineapple juice came out thick and orange and tasted odd. Her second juice was the normal pale yellow color it should be. Had a good, friendly waiter. Would not recommended the brunch.

Our server was very nice and pretty good. However the host and hostesses were obviously not wanting to be there.
Lastly, due to a delay on one of the 4 entrees, we didn’t get it until the other 3 had finished their meal. They took care of it and apologized.

Dining room not busy but took waaay too long to get food; server was very soft spoken and music too loud. My entree wasn’t prepared correctly (didn’t get side dish) and mashed potatoes not hot, yuck! Not a good experience and management didn’t seem to care.

The food ranged from goo to mediocre but there certainly was a large variety. The service was good but charged us for things that should not have. The biggest complaint was one inability to accommodate simple requests like an omelet without and butter or cheese. It probably did not come up to the level that is expected from granite city.

Our dining table was sticky, waiter was fair, food was cold and had zero flavor, and the restaurant was loud enough to make conversation difficult.
