Good food, decent beers

We stopped in because it was close to our hotel. Decent food and beers. Took a while for the bar staff to warm up and be friendly, but they turned out to be hospitable.

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

This was my first time coming to Granite City and I thought it was a bit spendy for the lunch time. They were also very busy so my lunch hour was extended. I ordered the Grilled Asian Chicken Salad which nearly $13.00. I highly recommend getting the salad dressing on the side because it was on the heavy side and... More

This is my go-to restaurant in Cedar Rapids. Every time I go I LOVE what I order, there's plenty of it to fill a hungry stomach and the price is exactly what I expect (about $13-15 for most entrees). There are steaks, salmon etc also which run more towards the $25 range. The restaurant is always busy but I've never... More

Granite City has the best brunch of any restaurant in Cedar Rapids. The selection is good. Always fresh. Never dried out. The cinnamon rolls are amazing! The only negative is the price. If you have small children or you are not in the mood for a splurge meal then I would not recommend.

Stopped here for lunch today. Service was pretty prompt. Had the chicken noodle soup (way too salty) and chopped salad (swimming in dressing but otherwise decent). One in our party got the fish and chips. Fish was cooked well but quite greasy. Garlic mashed were really good and the kids grilled chicken was also very good. Dial it back a... More

I hadn't been to Granite City in a year or two, so I decided to give it a try. I had been there 4 or 5 times in the past and always found it to be a very good restaurant. But last week it was just mediocre. Certainly nothing wrong with it, but nothing even slightly above average. I had... More
