    Nice atmosphere in bar but were out of Northern Lights beer. Food okay. Somewhat overpriced. My Chicken Tuscano was dry, needed more sauce, but mashed potatoes were excellent. Others ordered meatloaf and fish & chips. Great comments on fish. Meatloaf okay but presentation great! Excellent server!

    Had 6:30pm reservations and were seated around 6:45pm, not a big deal. Once we were seated it took close to 30 minutes (no exaggeration)before we had a server come to our table and even get us water. Server brought us water, then it was another 10 minutes before we saw him again to place a drink order. We watched the bar person go to 3 tables with our drinks before taking them back to the bar. Finally got our drinks and put in our order. We ordered the package for Valentines Day which included appetizer, soup or salad, entree, and shared desert. Soups arrived before the appetizer, and again were taken to 3 tables before we finally waved the server down to let him know they were ours. Had to ask about our appetizer, and before we were done with soups we had out entrees brought out as well. Food was excellent! Service was not so good. At the end of the evening the server apologized multiple times saying that he had 12 tables in 2 different rooms. Seems a little excessive for a “holiday” but that’s not his fault.

    This is the second year in a row that we have gone to Granite city for Valentine’s Day. Last year was incredible, which was why we decided to do it again this year. We totally took it into consideration obviously, it being a busy holiday and the service would probably be a bit slower because of the busyness on Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately, I felt horrible for our waiter as I feel he was given way too many tables and understaffed at the restaurant. Our waiter was very polite, and we were very understanding, but our meal came out, and then the appetizer, and then we had to ask for our Dessert to go due to it being delayed for so long. We waited 25 minutes after our meal was done for our waiter to even be able to come back over to our table. I was disappointed this year, but we will definitely be back.

    We had reservations for 6:30, and then didn’t get sat until 6:50. The waiter got an order wrong , my wife’s soup bowl was only half full, and the maple pepper bacon flatbread which is my favorite was not good. I don’t think we will return with our family.

    The place was busy and they had minimal wait staff trying to keep up. The main entrées arrived luke warm at best. We’ve eaten at Granite City many times and have been pleased but last night was not their best effort.

    Service seemed rushed being fairly busy which lowered the service level provided by our waitress (seemed stressed out). The burgers we ordered arrived cooked at the wrong temp and took 10-15 min to receive our second order of drinks, which one drink never showed up but still was added to our bill. Overall, disappointing but willing to give Granite City another try.

    It was our first time trying Granite City and I don’t foresee us going in the future. Not our first choice of food. The appetizer was The Spinach/ Artichoke dip. The chips were fine but the dip itself did not have much flavoring. Our entrees was the meatloaf and the Cajun Jambalaya. The flavors were okay, but the Jambalaya was so greasy we had to use napkins to soak some of the grease up.

    Very dissappointed with Thanksgiving meal, turkey I had was over roasted and dry, I did see another batch that wasnt as dry, but I already had my fill by then. The rest of the meal was ok, but not what I would expect for a nearly $40 a plate Thanksgiving meal.

    This was our second Thanksgiving at Granite City. Pre-COVID they offered family style service and the food was fantastic and felt special for the Holiday. This year it was buffet and they had great selections. The food was just better when served family style. I'm guessing they had a larger staff pre-COVID, so maybe the family style days are over?? They had a great holiday drink selection!

    We visited Granite City based on a gift from a friend. We had to wait over 40 minutes to receive our simple order and were seemingly disregarded as guests. The manager on duty loudly complained to the table next to us about how “busy” they were, all while seemingly doing nothing but shmoozing with said table and people at/around the bar. The manager also didn’t seem to be doing anything to help her “struggling” servers while she continuously catered to those that were already served and taken care of. There was no table touch by management after the ridiculous ticket time (just butt kissing to who seemed like close friends eating on her dime), nor any genuine apology or courtesy given for the inconvenience. However, the food was pretty decent and if it weren’t for the slow and poor service, we would likely return. We’re grateful to have had a nice meal via the courtesy of a friend who wanted to spread some love. Unfortunately we won’t be back to this location, and wouldn’t recommend it to others. Thanks again to our friend for the gift.

    We had a fantastic brunch. The prime rib was so tender, you could cut it with a fork. The kitchen really had it going on last Sunday. Our server was also great. We had a lovely family meal.
