Great Food and Service

The food was surprisingly good and our waiter was first class. I will go back and try some of the other items on the very broad menu.

Pretty disappointing meal & service. Decided to eat dinner there because of an email coupon. My meal was luke warm at best, almost warm waffle fries and the same with the Ribs, tasty but would have been much better hot. My wife never did receive one of her sides that was suppose to come with her meal. Took awhile to... More

If you are looking for a great place for Sunday Brunch--- Granite City is the place to be in Cedar Rapids. The price is very reasonable with a nice variety. What we enjoyed most was food was hot that needed to be hot ...nothing empty...no waiting for fresh food.

Every so often Granite City donates twenty percent of the cost of the customer's meals to a favorite non-profit organization. We took advantage of their offer and invited friends to a very enjoyable evening with a wide variety of meals to choose from. The food was exceptional and the service was very friendly and professional. The atmosphere was lovely plus... More

Excellent service, food was good not great. It has a good variety on the menu and nice atmosphere. We chose the bar area because there seemed to be a lot of small children in the restaurant and we wanted a quiet meal.

I've eaten the Sunday brunch buffet a number of times. It's great. All the food is made exceptionally well and the service is great too. Also, we've never had to wait for seating. The price is a little higher than eating at other places, but the quality of the food and service can't be beat.

My husband and I went to Granite City over the weekend. I have special dietary requirements and requested a gluten free menu. The waitress was not aware of a special menu (stated there was a gluten free menu at the bottom of the main menu) for gluten free but did go find one. There were a lot of offerings at... More

We went there for brunch while I was visiting from Idaho. The food was amazing and I loved the surroundings. It is large so accommodates a lot of people and you can eat from the menu or from their buffet............ super good place

I have been there many times and have yet to experience bad food. Their Sunday brunch has a good variety of tasty fruits, salad, normal brunch fair and alcohol. It's expensive but very good. When not there for brunch I would say my favorite is their Asian chicken salad. It is a delicious mix of greens, cabbage, and other veggies... More
