Unlimited mimosas are a great value-they bring you the bottle and 3 types of juice. The omelette station and prime rib was fantastic, produce was fresh. The hot dishes were not very impressive. Kraft Mac and cheese tastes better than the Mac and cheese I had unfortunately.

Do not order the prime rib. It was overdone.

The service was excellent.

Horrible service but good food
The food is very good but we waited 20 minutes for someone to come to our table only after I went to ask if we could get water and someone to take care of us. The rest of the meal did not go any better. At least 3 of the employees seemed loopy or completely out of it.

Had reservations for father's day. They allowed way too many walk ins and those with reservations had a substantial wait; as if we had not made reservations. Extremely rushed, crowded; food shortage; poor display; variety scarce. Next year we are heading back over to Ameristar. Thought we'd change up this year; bad decision.

I had a reservation for 1:00 PM through Open Table.I checked in at 12:50 and was given a beeper.I was told they were cleaning tables and they will call me in a few minutes. While we were waiting for a table my husband and I went to the bar to order a beer. When the female bartender brought our beers to us I was getting out the money to pay her so I said “can you give it to my son to hold” with a snappy tone she said “I’m not just going to hand him a beer without carding him”. It’s her job, but she was RUDE .25 minutes later I went to the counter and asked about our table. I was told by the hostess that my reservation had been canceled. I told her that is not so; I have the beeper in my hand.I spoke with a manager who seated me right away. I have found that sometimes the host or hostess at a restaurant will not check me in through the OpenTable. Last night Open Table thought I was a no show. I e mailed OpenTable to inform them that I honored my reservation and I have a receipt to prove it. We, as paying customers,are asked to honor our reservations. Restaurants who participate in an Open Table should know how to use the system. We were at the restaurant for a Father’s Day buffet. The waitress was exceptional, but lots of times the buffet had empty pans. I understand when you have large crowds things will run out; but many people asked about biscuits, bacon and others foods because the pans were empty for a long time. Prime rib was included in the buffet, but the two times I went to the carving station they did not have medium rare prime rib. Medium rare prime rib is a pretty normal way to serve it.The waitresses had to run back-and-forth to fill water glasses because they couldn’t leave a pitcher on the table because they were not enough of them.I have enjoyed the food that at this restaurant in the past,but I do believe that if they are going to serve a buffet they need to prepare better.

Well first of all I had an resevation for 12:15 the place was a zoo. We were not seating until 1240 after i said i would not be tipping anyone today. Then I seated right away. I came to Granite city two years ago and the service was excellent great food. But this year was a total disappointment. When you have a reservation you should not have to wait to be seated, It a good thing I didn't brng my mother. But there was a gentleman there who had his father with no reservations, his father was 80ish and could not stand, he hollered over other people who where in line before him and he was seated before me.

Made reservations 5 days out for Sunday brunch buffet...arrived on time, but still waited 45 minutes for a table...when seated, ordered drinks and one member did not ever receive his beverage until done eating and was ready to leave....25.99 seemed too high for the buffet....food was not of the highest quality, I know they were cooking for an increased number of people, but the quality was not up to par for their prices....will not go back for the buffet again....can’t speak for their regular menu, it may be very good, but will probably not go back to find out...too many other good places to try....

Waiter did not check on the table more than once while we are there. A member of our party stood up and followed another waiter trying to get a refill of coffee. Prime rib was cold both times the table went through the buffet line. In fact most food that should have been warm/hot was room temperature at best. Several items were out each time we went through the line. Yes it was busy for the Father's Day brunch. But we were their early before it became super crowded. Over all the father of the group was pleased so that is truly what matters. But can't say I will be rushing back for the buffet any time soon. Which is disappointing cause I've always found the food and service to be very good when visiting Granite City in the past.

I made the reservation for our large group (18) three days in advance. They were not prepared for us in any way. When they said they were ready to seat us, they took us to two separate tables. Completely unacceptable. Manager came over to speak to us and he was clearly irritared and was flippant with me. We waited, again, while they set up another table. The waiter was very nice, but completely missed one order and another order came with the wrong side. We had to ask 3 separate times to get the correct side (for a 7 year old). The food was good, but the overall experience was not.

You definitely get a lot for your money, the unlimited mimosas were great especially getting bottle service! My only complaint was that we were served the end of the prime rib, so it was very dry and trying to go back to get more became pretty impossible. Also was never able to get to the omelet station or the doughnut station.
But the food was great and plentiful and when we went (at 10:30am) it wasn't very busy. We had tried another weekend at 11am and had to leave because the line was out the door

We came away from our meal at Granite City confused and disappointed. The restaurant looked worn out with broken chairs in the dining area, mismatched lighting color from the entryway to the dining area and a broken sink in the men’s room. Our waitress was friendly, but seemed very rushed as she tried to cover other patrons. Our meals were subpar with over cooked fries, small portions and overall lack of presentation at a higher than expected cost. Unfortunately, we won’t be returning to this Granite City location.

Always enjoy the variety of the menu Granite City provides. Went Friday looking for seafood options due to Lent. Unfortunately the fish in the fish and chips dinner was cold and slightly mushy. Not sure if it just sat too long before being delivered to the table or what. Probably won't order it again though. Our server was pleasant.

Took my wife out for Vday. The Vday special was an appetizer, two entrees and two desserts for $45. The appetizer was amazing, but the entrees were quite bland. The desserts were just ok - the creme brûlée was alright, but my wife’s brownie was very hard.

Service was pretty good. Ambiance was alright, but it was also quite noisy.

My family decided to try out GC for brunch on Sunday. I'm from out of town & had only been here for dinner. The brunch did not disappoint and it was a great value! Whenever the line got crowded, it thinned out quickly so there wasn't much unnecessary waiting. I'll definitely be back when I'm back in town!
