My husband and I hadn't been to the Sunday brunch for about a year. We used Open Table for the first time and found the reservation process easy to use. We were also impressed with the food choices being offered. Our server, Erika, was very efficient, friendly and answered all our questions. We will be back.

Upon arrival we were informed of a delay in seating due to the fact that reservations exceeded expectations. Then why make reservations? Our host Spence was quite interesting to say the least. We order the champagne only to witness him having difficulty opening the bottle thus allowing it to spill on the floor. Watching him later during our visit with other customers his efforts were much improved. On the desert selection he offered the selections only to return and advised that our choice was frozen and would we prefer a different choice. All in all, while I wouldn’t say it dampened our reason for visiting, it didn’t impress either.

Had a reservation, had to wait 20 min, they seated walk ins ahead of us. Slow service. Snippy waitress. No apologies from hostess or waitress for any of this. Food mediocre.

Food and atmosphere were great. A bit noisy as it can be when crowded. But the service was over the top. Our waiter, Todd, was incredibly attentive, timely, articulate and courteous. He made the visit. Hats off to Todd.

Please tell your chef that the food was amazing! Best pot roast I’ve ever had; salmon, beans, sweet potatoes, salad were awesome. Temp of food wasn’t too hot, but it was still good. Service a little slow, but you guys were busy for the Thanksgiving holiday. Cant wait to go here again!

The table wasn’t as clean as I’d have liked it to be upon being seated. The server got it resolved with a slower sense of urgency than I would have done if I were doing the job.

I went there with my husband for date night because we've been there multiple times and it's typically very good, but this time we walked in with a reservation and the hostess told a server to seat us and as he told her that table was already taken she seemed visibly upset and put her hands on her face in anger, the server took our orders and everything seemed ok until she came back to our table 3 different times to check what I wanted and it then became obvious she put my husband's order in but not mine which meant my food took about 10 minutes longer than his to come out. She was over all horrible and the rest of the staff seemed just as incompetent as her as they were running around with dazed looks on their faces.
I suggest hiring some new servers and maybe upping the food game a bit as well. Mediocre at best.

Pretzel appetizer arrived with the bread frozen. Waitress brought replacement to table well after main dishes had arrived no discount or refund. Waitress was distracted and not very attentive. Meatloaf main dish was disappointing seemed bland and very dry. However the flat bread pizza was very good.

Happy hour menu was extensive and priced well. I thought the entrees were overpriced for the atmosphere. I think $15 for a hamburger is a little steep. Food was ok, nothing outstanding.
We were seated at 5:45 and happy hour went to 6. They acted like they were doing us a favor letting us order a drink and appetizer for happy hour. Two people told us, happy hour only goes until 6, like we shouldn't be ordering at 5:45. I always thought if you got your order in by the time happy hour was over, you were fine. Some restaurants even come and ask right before it ends if you want another drink.

We came for Sunday brunch. We have always enjoyed the bruch at Granite City. However this time the food was mearly mediocre. I'm not sure what they have changed, but the overall quality of food was not great. Our service was also lacking. She came by originally to take drink orders and then was not seen again until we flagged her down and asked for the check. Plates were never cleared atmd no one came by to refresh drinks. Not sure it would be worth the money to go back.

I would give it all 5 stars but there is one thing that almost ruins it, for me. The actual table.
The table finish is coming off of all the tables (we overheard someone else comment to the server, as well, in the booth behind us) and it makes the tables so sticky. You can’t feel like you are eating in a clean setting if the tables feel like soda or syrup has been spilt and left all over where you are eating.

We had a fantastic server, I believe her name was Jen. She was so friendly, very good at explaining brunch options, eager to help us with any side orders of eggs Benedict, French toast or caramel rolls. She truly made the whole meal with her very kind and attentiveness.

The buffet options were delicious, served piping hot. The dishes could use some better washing, as we did have to go thru a couple that still had food on them.

We went here for our son's 10th birthday. We had an exceptional experience at a Granite City in another state, so we were really excited. This location did not live up to our expectations. They did not receive our OpenTable reservation so they did not have us on their list. We waited quite a long time for a table and there were a couple of groups ahead of us who were quite upset about the wait they had already experienced. The waitress was very charming and hard-working and had been brought up from Lincoln to cover their staffing shortage. The birthday boy did not get his drink until 3 requests were made. It was forgotten the first time and then we're not sure what happened the next time. My older son received chocolate milk that was warm so we sent that back and the waitress was great about replacing that and apologizing for that. We tried the chicken limone and the meat lovers flat bread pizza and the burger and chicken bites. The French fries were the best thing of all of that. They got the burger wrong and took it back and replaced it. The very best thing was the dessert of a fresh baked cookie topped with ice cream they brought for our son. Overall, just a mediocre experience.

My two friends and I went to brunch to celebrate our birthdays. The food was great. The buffet offered a wide variety from a ham and roast beef carving station, to make to order omelets, caramel rolls, fruit, pasta, salad, breads and pastries.. you have to try the caramel rolls if you go for brunch! Very good. It was a little expensive, but a good meal anyway.
