Located at 243 S. Sierra St. in a building erected in 1940, specifically for a restaurant, is the home of a unique gathering place. The original address was 243 Granite St. hence the name…Old Granite Street Eatery.

With a menu that reflects a strong desire to provide familiar, comforting dishes having an emphasis on quality ingredients. Combined with constantly rotating craft beer selections, focused wine options and hand crafted cocktails, Old Granite Street Eatery looks to be a casual affordable everyday option for neighbors and community to share in great food and drink. We only reserve 1/3 of our restaurant through OpenTable in order to facilitate walk-in traffic. We also have a large communal table for sit-down service. Please included any children and infants in the total in your party for reservations.

    Quaint and very close to the Pioneer Center, my husband and I love going to The Old Granite Street Eatery! The food is always good, and the wait staff are friendly and amicable! A really nice selection of wine and spirits, too! A little noisy when there's a crowd, and be sure to make a reservation, especially on weekends!

    My friend and I came for dinner before we went and saw Cats. I had a reservation at 6:30, and we got there at 6:20 and were seated immediately which was nice. After we sat down it took about 20 minutes for the waiter to greet our table and get our drink order; by that time we already knew what we wanted so he took our order. We each order burgers, one with a salad and the other with fries; no appetizers. It took over an hour to get our food! The show started at 8, and we were almost late. An hour wait for two burgers is ridiculous! The food was good, fresh, but it was nothing special. We will not be returning.

    The Granite Street Eatery has been one of my favorite places to dine with friends in Reno. The food quality and taste have never disappointed. If you enjoy an alcoholic beverage This place has you covered too. Good Draft beers, great wines, and a bartender who can mix the perfect cocktail to match your mood. During shows at the Pioneer Theater, it does get very busy. and seating is very limited. Also, I would recommend getting a lite appetizer and drink while you're waiting for your meal. It can take a little longer than you might be used to.

    We had a wonderful meal. An eclectic restaurant. By the time we finished all tables were occupied. My husband had the salmon and he said he it was very good and I had the fusili bolognese pasta and it was so yummy. We started with appetizers (peppers and calamari). the peppers were outstanding but the calamari was too crunchy for us. We also ordered the lava molten cake with vanilla ice cream. Outstanding dessert. I had their key lime pie martini and I would order it again. Great service and great food. We will be back.

    Not incredibly busy, but service was very slow. Guess that's just a sign of the times. Only problem was we had a play to attend, had to inhale our food, and got to the theater with 5 minutes to spare. The food was good, though. I would go back but will give myself more time.

    The food at Granite Street has always been top notch and did not fail to please this time either. In the past I've had burgers and salads and this time opted for a Cobb salad. The quantity and quality of all the ingredients was excellent. One can always judge a restaurant by the cut and cooking of a chicken breast, and this chef did it right! Our waiter was attentive and responsive and so very friendly. Granite is NOT a quiet place but the food is excellent.

    Thank you to the staff for the excellent service and food. Initially I wasn’t sure my mother would be comfortable but the atmosphere was friendly and perfect for her special day. Best of all, the noise level was perfect, we could hold conversations with ease. Eric was our server and he did a wonderful job making our party comfortable. The prices were very reasonable and the choices were tasty and provided variety to choose from. We will definitely be back and recommend this spot to others.

    Reservation cancelled hours before our reservation because they decided to close early. They called, but didn’t leave a message, luckily I called back the unfamiliar number. If I wouldn’t have, we would have drove all the way there for nothing. We enjoyed a great dinner somewhere else.

    OGS used to be a hip place to go and eat really different food that tasted great. Its kind of worn down and a bit dirty and was empty on a Saturday night. The staff are all amazing and very attentive. The food was really disappointing. Old and tired menu - like even the cook doesn't want to serve the same thing year after year.

    Wide menu selection for quality, healthy fare. Our table indulged with an order of the daily seasonal special (Reuben on swirled homemade Rye), a wonderfully spicy fish taco, and a health-focused turkey wrap. Served by high energy, professional staff who moved us in/out with any delays to our fun-filled day in Reno. Thank you Granite Street Staff.

    Even though we made reservations, no one acknowledge our arrival for 15 minutes. We were ignored for almost 40 minutes before someone took our order. When they brought our food, it was incomplete. Even though I had dedicated an hour and 15 minutes to eat, we had to leave to catch a show before we finished. I had to track down a waiter to get the check, informed him that we did not get 3 of the items ordered and when asked to refill our water, no one returned. We were charged full price and no sincere apology. It was a disappointing part of the evening. Our son introduced us to this eatery and we were on our first date with our new teenage granddaughter attending a play at the Pioneer Center for the Performing Arts.

    Strangest eating experience in a while. We sat for 20 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us. The waiter seemed like he was high on some strong drugs. He had to ask for EVERYTHING (dipping sauce, the bill) multiple times before getting it. The table next to us asked for their bill 5 times before it finally came. They waited to pay for over an hour after they had finished their meal. Incoming tables (as we finished up) waited awkwardly for over 20 minutes to order. Everyone looked confused and kept checking their watches, as most of the crowd was headed to a performance at the Pioneer Center, and had an impending curtain call. Food was tasty, once we got what we actually ordered (a few mix ups). Wouldn't go again.

    I’m just going to stop going here. The service is always ridiculously slow. They got my order so wrong after waiting 90 minutes for it, but I was so hungry when it arrived I still tried to eat some of it while waiting for its replacement. I also had to eat a snack I had in my purse while waiting before that because I was so hungry. When they finally brought my correct order, it was tasty but my friend said her food was fairly bland. Then they accidentally charged me for a whole bottle of wine instead of one glass. One of our wonderful servers, Nathan, was so sweet and did everything he could to make things better, but we were both just laughing about the whole quagmire of a situation by the end of it. He did the best he could and at least fixed the bill, bless his heart. This isn’t the first time my friend and I have had a bad/frustrating experience, so we won’t be returning again. It’s too bad, this place has such great potential but just can’t seem to live up to it.

    I expected it to be much better. Brunch seems to be an afterthought with spotty service and mediocre food. The place has all the ambiance to be a great restaurant but the meal was uninspired (also, for the love of god, serve real cream and not terrible flavored creamers)

    I have eaten here in the past and just loved it! I thought the food and service were great. My last visit however, the service was poor, they seemed understaffed, the menu was completely different than what I saw online, and the food was mediocre. I hope to be able to recommend this restaurant again in the future, but at this time I would not.
