The food was great, the service was as well. The only negative was the noise on the dining room that distracted us from having a conversation.

Their Brunch Buffet is good, but way over priced for the mediocre quality. Selection is also good, but it's overpriced for what you get. Take the Prime Rib for example. Good taste yes, but they served up one very low quality meat selection. The guys making omelets were friendly enough, but so-so at their jobs too. We’ll very possibly return... More

After a few visits to Granite City that were enjoyable, this one didn't measure up, mostly because the service was poor: careless and inattentive. The food was fine and the beer good. Their mug club is a good buy even for an occasional diner. The $10 cost gets you a free beer on that visit and discounts on food and... More

I really liked this place. Good food, prepared well, and served in an appropriate amount of time. My waiter was very attentive without hovering. The menu is varied enough to suit large groups.

We were so disappointed when we we stopped in Fargo during our summer road trip. After driving from Michigan across the country to Washington, down to Oregon, back through Wyoming, Montana etc., this place was the very first bar/ restaurant that wouldn't allow our 10 lb. dog on their outside deck. The very first!!! That said our waiter, Miguel, was... More

The best thing on the menu is the French Onion Soup. Everything else is pretty runn of the mill. The beer they brew is actually pretty good so that tends to perk up the food a bit. Clean, average, and a little pricy.

My family of 6 met my friend's family of six to eat here. We made reservations at noon for six that evening. When we got there at 5:50, I was told that they were just getting it ready. Truth is, our table was in use. We had to wait until 6:20 for our 6:00 reservation. I was not impressed. Reservations... More

Whether you go for lunch, dinner, drink and a snack in late afternoon, or Sunday brunch you will not be disappointed. The servings are generous! The food is well served and nicely presented. The beers are cold and the wine selection sufficient. No matter what time of day or night - whether you wish to use the patio or indoor... More

Because it's weird, that's why! We thought we were going to a one-of local brewpub but when we got there we were so confused. The place seemed corporate, felt chain and then the menu was slick and plasticky, with a whole page at the front of fancy cocktails. So, we were thrown off. (I just now Googled them, and indeed,...

For the first time in my life I had to send a meal back. I had ordered the fish tacos and the cabbage was stale and the fish was off. I had ordered a Caesar with my meal, it was about $9 for the drink and was nothing special. The service was average, and the overall atmosphere was depressing.
