Nice place

We stopped in for dinner with two other couples. We were seated right away, but it was a Tuesday evening and not busy. The server was friendly and answered all of our questions. Since we weren't in a hurry he had to come back several times to see if we were ready to order. Our meals came out... read more

Went here as a couple and found the place to be clean and fairly busy. A server came by after about 30 seconds and said he would help us get settled, even though our actual server was busy helping out another table. In other words, they kind of cover each other. We tipped both servers after our meal and they... More

Stopped by for late night happy hour (9 pm if you consider that late). Two glasses of wine and a flatbread pizza for under $20 bucks - great value and the flatbread came in an unusual triangular dish and was plenty of food for one and could easily feed 2. Had the barbecue chicken flatbread, but the maple bacon sounded... More

The food at Granite City in St. Louis Park is good, just like other Granite City restaurants. Also, the restaurant is modern and clean. We had some problems with service. For example, although the restaurant was not busy, it took 30 minutes to get a cold cup of coffee. It is a little strange getting into the parking lot -... More

Very nice Thanksgiving with family. Some of their food was just warm however they were very helpful. I have a family member with food allergies and they made him a special meal.

I met a friend for lunch at Granite City - a restaurant I have driven by a zillion times but never stopped. It looked like a typical chain restaurant and I wasn't thrilled when my friend suggested it. Wow, was I surprised! I ordered the burger with bleu cheese dressing, bacon and onion fries on top. Woozy! Delicious...done to perfection.... More

Five of us from Texas tried to give this place a final chance to be better, but they AGAIN failed miserably. We went early to watch sports on TV as the Astros were in the play-offs, SMU football was on, Houston Texans were playing Thursday night football and the San Antonio Spurs were on national TV. All games were on... More

Their food is surprisingly good since they are a craft brewery. We joined the "Mug Club" and find that it is a great value. Great place just to sit at the bar and don't forget your growlers. Mug Club members get some occasional $5 deals on growler refills.

Went for a quick dinner - service was good - food was served hot and quickly - and prices were reasonable. Shared a burger and one of the "flat bread pizzas" -- plenty for 2 people... While it is not one of those places you would "hurry back" to.... it is also not one where you would hesitate at all... More
