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.

Good food, good service and nice atmosphere. The menus need to be replaced, though. Or, just use QR codes. Overall very good!

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!

Everything was good except for food. The Asian shrimp app. was not good. The shrimp were hard. The entree i had was fish and chips and the fish was greasy, tasteless and doughy.

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!

Had an 11:15 reservation, didn't get seated until I questioned the host, I was told I was still 2nd in line, next thing I know they took us to be seated at 11:34, so I'm not sure who we jumped in front of. The manager did apologize and take responsibility for our delay so I found that to be great.

Our server did not inform us of any of the covid processes to follow. We got to the food line, had to read the signs, then return to our tables as we had forgotten our masks. The only food that was cooked to our preference was the omlet.
All other food either seemed to be under or overcooked to include the carmel rolls, which are usually our favorite. Including the drink and tip, this meal was not worth the money we paid.

The food was good (Chinese chicken salad), chicken tortilla soup, fries, brussel sprouts, wings were all good. Our order was goofed a little, but I think they are still recovering from being busier as the Covid restrictions ease up.

Usually we love Granite City, but not on this visit. When I reserved lunch for 2:30pm it was not made clear that only the Mother's Day brunch was available. The food was OK, but standing in line for limited choices was not what we had in mind.

Restrictions due to COVID ruined the great brunch they used to have. Had to order my 'made to order' omelet through the waitress and had to ask for it 3 times. Manager came over to apologize and said he would take something off the menu but then never did. Food selection was nothing like it used to be.

We have been here in Omaha and KC before and had really great experiences. We went through 3 servers that were being “cut”; slow service; our pretzels were dropped in the booth and they brought us “a new one” not a new order; they didn’t know what beers they served; and the tables were super gross but the servers swore that it was because of the sanitization process and Covid. Just overall, not good.
