Stopped in on a Friday night and it was a packed house which is always a good sign. Had to wait about 30 minutes for a table which is okay. One of the servers passed by offering a taste of an appetizer to everyone waiting. That was a nice touch. When we got seated we ordered a sampler of beers... More

My wife and I were flying out of Fargo's international airport after a great trip visiting family in Minnesota. We stopped at Granite City as we have never experienced this restaurant. We were very pleased with our selection as the restaurant looked very nice (both external and internal). We were seated at a table, but asked if we could get... More

I've been to this location several times and have enjoyed it, but this most recent visit wasn't that great. It took about 15 minutes for us to get our two drinks and that was only after asking the hostess to see if she could get them. There was no apology from our waitress for how long the drinks took, and... More

Lots of variety on their menu and their food is good. Workers are very friendly. Servings are large.

The food is decent, but the service is unpredictable and often slow. I cannot go here for a weekday lunch without allowing 90 minutes, even when they're slow. If you have time to relax and have a drink, it's a good place to visit.

We have eaten at Granite City several times in the past few months, and each time the staff was attentive, and the food delightful.

We took my husband for his first visit here. We were welcomed at the door and we're seated very quickly. They asked if this was a first visit and we said it was for one of us. They welcomed him and brought him complimentary samples of the soups of the day. The staff was awesome. They checked on us and... More

Two of my friends and myself tried Granite City as none of us had had the experience. When the server found out it was our first try she explained the kitchen and how everything is made right there to the micro beers brewed on the premises. The manager brought us samples of two soups they were serving that evening, beer... More
