It' been over a year since we've eaten there - the food was very good. The only complaint i have is they don't take reservations. I can understand this for small parties of 2 - 4 - 6 but when you have 12 or more i think they should make an acception.

Granite City has a great beer selection. Their food menu is quite extensive, but I have never had a dish there that I was really excited about. On my most recent visit, I had the Asian Chicken Salad, and it was a huge plate full of salad, but kind of bland with some lettuce that was a little past its... More

Great place for Sunday brunch. My family has sampled Sunday brunch at many places around town and we always return to Granite City because they have the widest menu and the best food. The restaurant is a great place for all other meals, too. It's usually crowded and that's because the food is very good. Make reservations if you have... More

This is by far my favorite place in Cedar Rapids! The food was MORE than excellent. The service was very good and fast. The staff and kitchen are accommodating. The entrees are all so good, it is hard to choose what to have!! Trouble is, since I have been there I do not want to go anywhere else!!

This was our 3rd visit here. The first two times were average, on a weekday night. This time we were here on a Tuesday at lunch time. Service was poor. Needing to ask other wait staff for thing we needed instead of our original waitress because she did not come to our table often. The lunch menu for the classic... More

My wife and I had dinner there yesterday and the food was great. It is a little expensive but definitely great food. Our service was just as great. I highly recommend it.

My wife and I were in this place on Saturday for lunch. If you look this place from the outside, you think it is expensive (well, the average restaurant chains like Texas Roadhouse or Outback). I didn't know this belongs to a restaurant chain and actually I was thinking we needed reservation, but not, you can just walk in. We... More

We ate dinner here with 4 people, all ordering different items. We all enjoyed our meals very much, We started off with a flat bread appetizer, but would not highly recommend that. Food was ample, good tasting, served nicely and we will definitely go back again.
