We had a large group and we each ordered off of menu. The waiters were polite and efficient. The food came in a timely manner and was good quality. They checked back regularly to see if we need anything else.

Awesome food, friendly staff, General Manager came out and greeted us since the Server told him that we had never been there before. Gave us a coupon to come back again. Will definitely be going back. 5 stars! 😊

I enjoy Granite City for their unique menu items and good draft beers, but I despise the drink order process. The server takes a beer order and has to bring it to the bar, where apparently there is an evil Leprechaun who chooses to steal my beer and nobody can catch him.

One of our favorite places for brunch. Getting too popular - often a line. We enjoy it a lot! Great sandwiches. Just wish they had specials from time to time with some different foods. We tend to have the same dishes every time. My husband loves the walleye. Can't beat the spinach artichoke dip.

The restaurant's atmosphere is awesome! We truly enjoyed our dining experience! The prices seemed a little high, but once the food arrived and we tasted how incredible the dishes were...we were happy to pay it.

It's a bit pricey but there cheesy hash browns were on point. All you can drink mimosas for $7.99. A little mix of lunch and breakfast. Made to order omelettes! Yum!

Sandwich, meal or flatbread pizza are the main choices. Service is usually good. We go around 5:00 because after that there can be a wait. Special lunch menu. It is also a microbrewery if that is to your taste. Always good, some special menu items that change on a regular basis. They have a Sunday Brunch, but we have not... More

No matter what you order, the food is always very good. The price is fair for the quality and the service is good. Best Brunch in Cedar Rapids. Great selection of food and very tasty.
