"Interesting entrees-cold-tasteless"

The menu selection is varied and great presentation, however, all entrees especially the Flatbread Pizza was served lukewarm as if it had been on a warming platter. Did enjoy the four ladies playing mahjong, which indicates they aren't very busy! Prices were fair and service was fast, but that's... read more

This is a good place for a drink and a snack, but don't expect any fine dining. The service has always been average, and the food a bit overpriced for VERY typical fare.

Have now been here a few times and every time food is less than impressive. I think they have a great concept and good menu selection but food is just not up to par. I will say that the garlic mashed potatoes wail. Service for the most has been average as well.

I LOVE Granice City restaurants, but I think my favorite to date is the one we went to in St. Louis Park. It's a familiar place, hence the

Our server Dan went over and above! I was with a group of four. When taking our drink order we were informed they had Coke products, not Pepsi. Big bummer! So 2 of the 4 just got water. We joked to our server that really good waiter would run over to the gas station and get us Pepsi. A few... More

We get the bedda cheddar burger, and it's always great! We get the sour cream dip with the French fries and my husband and I are happy campers. My son is a chef, and I know what great food is, and you can't beat the Granite City burger!

We were there for the final 4 and many screens in their smaller bar area. Fresh beer and the dinners were very good as well.

Disappointing and Embarrassing! That's the best thing I can say about what has happened to this once busy, thriving, enjoyable restaurant/brew pub. Prices have skyrocketed, service has gone down, food tries to be upscale to justify prices and the customer base is 20% of five years ago. I live in Texas, but have worked near and been a Mug Club...
