Love this place! Great service, yummy food (fish tacos my fav), and fabulous brews! The Bennie is my fav! I have a growler full waiting for me! That's right... Buy a growler from them and then bring it back when you go and have it filled with your favorite microbrew for only like $10! Great deal!

I think Granite City is just what you would expect. Nicer than say Applebees, but a little more expensive. I like to just order the waffle fries and dip - makes a great unhealthy meal. I've heard that the clam chowder on Fridays is super.

Hadn't been there in years. Food is still great and a huge variety. The chocolate cake with the whiskey butter was nowhere as good as it used to be.

This is an excellent restaurant and a brewery in one place. I had a lot of fun with my friends here.

We met a friend here for lunch while visiting the area. It was my first time at a Granite City. The spinach & artichoke dip was divine. But my fish tacos were kind of tasteless. My husband said his chicken salad sandwich was also pretty bland. Other then that our experience there was wonderful. The manager stopped by our table... More

What I recommend: the boneless wings (appetizers), the French onion soup, the beer cheese soup, and any of the burgers. With a very wide selection of food and beer, Granite City has something for everyone. The staff are friendly, outgoing, and attentive. Unfortunately, I have a few misses: certain sandwiches are small and greasy; the french fries can be either... More

I had the Grilled Chicken/Artichoke sandwich with fries. HUGE sandwich and a heap of thin, tasty fries. I had them put half in a box and ordered a new item on dessert menu: white cake with pistachio filling and frosting with crushed pistachios on top. Very tasty! My husband had the BTA (?) Bacon, tomato, avocado sandwich. It was a... More

We've been dining at Granite City restaurants for years and usually are able to find one wherever we travel. Our "home" one is in Cedar Rapids, about 25 miles from us but well worth the drive. We've sampled many of their wonderful menu items, from appetizers to dinners but usually are there for lunch. The portions are more than generous,... More

Granite City is never a disappointment. Wide variety menu and good home brews. My husband's favorite is the walleye. The meat loaf is huge and very good. My last visit I had an excellent dinner salad. We'll always plan an evening at GC when in town.
