Our server was wonderful. One had a drink and a second drink was being brought to the table as it was asked for. Her suggestions for food was right on.

The restaurant knew it was a birthday-they didn’t acknowledge. The food was a poor value very overpriced- not sufficiently cooked. The room was noisy and extremely chilly

The place is very nice. Pleasant atmosphere a good service. Great menu with a lot of variety. I had the salmon salad. Two issues. The salmon was kind of dry and the candied pecans were barely visible. Jist a few cut up in small pieces. I lo e those so was expecting to be more like other places by getting an entire pecan.

They have a great beer selection. Their food is good as well. I had the special- Cuban sandwich, and it was excellent. They let me switch out the cheese since I am not a fan of Swiss. They serve a flight of 4 beers for $4.95 which you cannot beat! The only complaint is that the service was a bit slow. I had to ask for waters, and sliverware.

First time there, good food, good selection of beer. We enjoyed the wine and the beer, and the pork tacos were a great appetizers. I would definitely recommend it, and look forward to going back sometime for brunch.

Food was good and reservation was honored. Prices are okay but no bargain. Service could be better and servers need to be better listeners and more attentive.

We were very impressed with the service. Everyone was so nice and they were going to go out of the way to meet our needs.
Everything we ordered, was good and it meet our expectations. We will go there again and I would strongly recommend this place for service, food and ambiance.

Our food was very good. We could have done without the Idaho Nacho appetizer as it fills you up too uch for your meal. But all in all we had a lovely time. We were with good friends and our waiter was awesome.

We've been mug club members at Granite City for a long time. Their beer and food are excellent. The value is good and we always walk away happy customers. If you want a good value, they have tasty pizzas. If you want a full meal, their steaks are very good too.

Was in a very loud room away from main dining/bar area. The noise was a bit much. The room would benefit from something to soften the sound.

The food is basic bar food. Nothing to get excited about but it does fill a niche if you’re interested in something simple (like a burger, taco, nacho, etc) and a cold beer to wash it down.

1st time for brunch and it was surprisingly good. Had just discovered the brunch here so it’s not so crowded since it seems to be fairly new. I would definetly go back for the brunch.

Fabulous brunch. We especially like the hash brown potatoes.

We would add a green salad to the brunch selections

The cinnamon roll was overcooked and dry.

Our server was attentive and friendly.

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...
