We've been to Granite Steak & Grill a few times. It features two different dining areas. The restaurant is upstairs and features lots of windows and light. The tavern is downstairs and feels a bit cramped, dark, and tavern-ish. The same menus are available in either location. We've eaten upstairs and downstairs. This trip was downstairs, and I much prefer... More

Prime rib was tender and tasty and comes with two sides. This is the kind of roadside sit down restaurant that was everywhere before the chains overran the country.

I am new to the area and have eaten out a lot - but by far this is my favorite in the area. Have gone on the weekends and ordered takeaway. The food was great and downstairs they had a guy with guitar singing - and kids red dancing. Great atmosphere and food.

This place knows its mission, and it's good at it. It's a comfortable family restaurant with easy access, ample parking, and lots of booth seating. The service is fast and friendly. If you're looking for a dimly lit restaurant with elegant furnishings, a sparse wait staff, and artful presentations of small-portion dinners, then this is not your place. If you... More

went there with a friend b/c it was nearby when i was in town and she had been in the tavern downstairs before. IMO there is nothing to recommend this restaurant other than it is big and you can get a seat and eat really fast. service is "american dine and dash". Oh the portions are large if that matters...

Our family took a break from camping past weekend and found this place. Our whole family loved it. Best prime rib I had in years.

We were traveling past the area and stopped here to eat. The food was good, some of the menu items were unique, and the staff was friendly. We were here on Father's day and so they were really busy. ...they still got us seated within 10-15 minutes. The service started off excellent, but wasn't as good as the meal went... More

Came here for lunch and dinner for large family gathering. I have to say that I enjoyed the service more than the food though. For lunch I had the stir fry. I'm sure they would have given me something else if I had complained, but I was enjoying the gathering too much to worry about it really. My complaint would... More

Never unsatisfied when visiting this eatery. The food is quite good and you find something that you don't like, the staff is very attentive to correct. A definite experience you will enjoy.

We have visited the Granite Steak several times mostly for lunch, but sometimes for dinner. The food has always been consistently good, and the service pleasant and always accommodating. The portions are good, not gourmet size, and good quality. The beef has always tasted great without all the tenderizers that many of the chain restaurants use. Great family place and... More
