Waffle fries with no seasoning or salt...disappointing.
Martini...fabulous
Atmosphere...freezing as always! Wear long sleeves!
Service...snails pace! Quite irritating.

Still, I like the place. Hopefully things change after the election and masks disappear magically.

We were excited to finally dine out for our anniversary and chose GC. While everything seemed normal and accommodating to COVID restrictions, the new prices are at least 30% higher. I ordered the fish and chips. To sub a side salad for the fries was a $3 upcharge. When I got the fish, there were about 6 pieces of 'fish'. Only one piece had any significant fish in it. The other pieces were 90% coating. It was hard to find any fish flesh in those pieces. If you go, do not order fish and chips and expect to pay up to double pre covid prices We won't be eating out much bc of the prices and not going back to GC bc this experience. Sorry.

Went for brunch and the normal things I eat were not available...I wish this was online instead of the full brunch menu. No Caesar salad no raspberry white chocolate scones hash brown potato’s were burnt and bloody Mary’s were horrible

Matt was our waiter, he was awesome!! Good food, good beer, great time! We did have 8:00 reservations and had to wait about 15 minutes for our table to be ready. But that really wasn’t a problem for us this time around.

This is the first time we had to wait so long for our meals here. I had made reservations for bar seating. We knew it would be busy but we are certain we were forgotten. The manager was somewhat apologetic after stating it’s Valentines’s Day. We knew that.
He did take care of our meals and drinks. We won’t go on Valentine’s Day again.

Food was pretty good as always but the poor review is because we made our reservation here and then showed up about 10 mins early and were greeted by a non-apologetic woman who said unfortunately they would not honor our reservation because it was UNL graduation weekend. I think if she had said there was a mistake or something it would have been different, but she was very defensive immediately and rude upfront. Someone else stepped in and showed us a table and said “you have to be out by 7:30”. Worst customer service I can remember from a restaurant. The waitress was lovely and very good and we tipped her well. We won’t be going back, though. Better choices in town. This is so over priced as it is. Meatloaf is over $20. We paid, with a couple drinks and dessert, over $200 and we make that mistake again. Hopefully they won’t with others.

We decided to try Granite City’s special Thanksgiving holiday meal and we were not disappointed! The menu included turkey, gravy, and the best stuffing we have eaten in a great while. It was served with cranberry chutney which was also outstanding.
We also chose a serving of traditional beef pot roast which was expertly prepared.
We chose the bar seating and the service was excellent as well.
A great choice for a holiday!!

Selected GC on behalf of our nephew who loves the “sticky bun” cinnamon rolls. Omelette to order was well prepared although severely limited ingredients to choose. Fruit and eggs in the buffet was sub par. Overall very average dining.

We come to Granite City to eat once every 6 weeks because of the Food, Service and the Atmosphere.
On Friday night that was not the case. We were seated at 7:05 and did not recieve our food until 8:10 our salads came out 2 mins before the meal and our female service was not that great. Four tables that were seated way later than us had their food and were paying the bill before we had our food. Did our server not give the kitchen our ticket? Who knows! One the of the managers came by and gave us an apology but didn't even discount anything. That was not the customer service experience we were hoping for.

GC was obviously understaffed. We were at the restaurant an hour and 45 minutes. Less than an hour of that was actually having our meal. Waiting for check and then someone to pick up that check took extraordinarily long. Although seated at a table (not the bar) our waitstaff member appeared to be doubling as bartender.

And my biscuits and gravy were cold :(

Ordinarily love GC but likely won’t be going back for brunch.

I appreciate you taking the time to fill out a survey! I'm so sorry to hear that your last experience at Granite City wasn't up to par. Ordinarily, during our Sunday Brunch, our on-duty bartender doesn't have a section, as making our Bloody Mary experience and infinite mimosas is time consuming on top of taking care of the bartop. I will get in touch with our scheduling manager to make sure that an experience like yours doesn't happen again in the future. Apologies, Jason Ries lincoln@gcfb.net

Reserved dining area seating for 3. Arrived at time of reservation and had to wait about 10 minutes while table was wiped off?! We were sat in the bar area at a high top. Server was nice enough just seemed to disappear for a long time between visits. Food was kind of a let down. Ordered off the Octoberfest Menu - Reuben was tough and bread was hard. Other meals were just ok. Overall my first visit to Granite City was well below my expectations. We will think long and hard before trying it again.

We had a reservation for 6:30 but weren't seated until after 6:45. The diningroom was pretty full so I understand they were busy. Our server was very nice but seemed like he was rushed maybe because he had too many tables to take care of? The wait for alcohol drinks was really bad. We received our waters and sodas and waited another 15 minutes to get 2 beers & a margarita. I asked the waiter about it and he said the bar was backed up. The table next to us said the bar is always backed up and there is always a long wait. It seems like you have a great opportunity to sell more drinks if they were made in a timelier manner. Our food was good. Having said all of this, I don't know that I will return here anytime soon.
