Loved our Thanksgiving dinner. Our original plans were to go to our daughters house for a big family dinner. But her husband came down w/the flu on Thanksgiving so we went to plan B. The food was beyond delicious. My son is allergic to peanuts and pecans and the server worked with the chef to ensure no cross contamination or problems. We even had leftovers to take home and we didn't have to cook. Thanks for making what could have been a challenging thanksgiving into a fabulous holiday!

Thanksgiving Dinner was very well prepared and valued with very quiet environment. Turkey and side dishes were very well cooked and delicious. Roast beef dish was not up to expectation, though. It wasn’t a slices of roast beef dish that is norm. To cut the ingredient expense, the dish was a mix of very small chunks of roast beef with various vegetables... Very disappointed but turkey dish with all the side dishes was excellent...

Made a reservation on Open Table and indicated it was a celebration and asked for a booth for four. The restaurant was not full. We were taken to two little tables pushed together in the lousiest back area where they send the families with noisy small children. The whole point of going to this place is that it is a brewery. Were were up against a back wall away from the bar, fireplace, big kegs, or anything interesting to look at and NOT in the booth we requested. Service was was pleasant but the food was sub-par. Used to go here often, but so disappointed, will hesitate to go again.

We had a turkey dinner from the specials menu that came out dry. Upon my wife saying something to the server it was whisked away and the chicken limone was brought out which was excellent (as usual). Despite that hiccup all was very good. That is until we found out the manager is a Patriots fan which we decided to ignore.

I saw an ad for their Oktoberfest menu on social media and went in for the Jagerschnitzel with braised red cabbage, roasted brussel sprouts and spaetzle. It was wonderful! The cabbage was slightly sweet. The Brussel sprouts were roasted perfectly with nice crispy outer layers. The meat had a crunchy outside bread and was tenderly moist inside. Their Blue-eyed Brunette beer was a perfect beverage pairing.

This was a very pleasant lunch - much better than when I was there for an anniversary lunch August 12th!
(the anniversary indicated w/reservation was not acknowledged) - nor was reservation on arrival! (1 PM) -The Sunday buffet was depleted and absolutely deserted!

Ashlee, our server this time, was very attentive and knowledgeable - I think I have to avoid Sundays!

We were at Granit City for dinner after a movie on Saturday night. We were surprised that it was not more crowded at that time. The salads were generous and good. I had the prime rib sandwich. My friend had the scallops. He said the scallops were average. Not bad but edible. My sandwich was not edible. The beef was sliced very thin and clearly reheated. If I wanted reheated leftover food, I could have eaten at home. When the server saw I didn't eat much of my food, she asked if I wanted something else. Since my friend had finished his meal I said no thank you. When she brought the check she said the manager did not charge us for my meal. That was a very nice thing to do since I did not bring the problem to their attention, but a delicious meal would have been better.
