“Love the concept, execution was very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Here in Houston we used to have something similar to Granite City called Two Rows. For stupid political and financial reasons, we no longer have authentic brewpubs. But on a recent trip to MN I was able to enjoy something I really love. Fresh Beer and Great food. Granite City is a typical bar/restaurant with a large U shaped bar on one side with a great number of tables on the other. At the bar you get very good service from knowledgeable barstaff (and quick response times on drink orders, which is a huge plus). I opted for their beer sampler and wound up ordering a couple of pints of their Belgian style blonde. Very tasty. For dinner I had some fantastic ribs in a spicy blackberry sauce that really was delicious. My wife had the spicy shrimp tacos, and boy can I tell you were they spicy. She couldn't even finish one because of how insanely hot it was. For dessert, oh my. They had a special Maple Bacon Funnel Cake. It was as glorious as it sounds.
All in all, a very good place to get a drink and some great food. Well worth your time if you find yourself in St. Cloud.

“Saturday night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We arrived here about 6:30 on Saturday evening and were seated within 5 minutes. We have eaten here before and always get a great meal with them. The services is very good and pretty friendly. You are greeted nicely at the door when you arrive and thanked when you leave, usually by at least two people up front there. I highly recommend this place for a very good meal and good value. As we were leaving I did notice that they had quite a waiting list of customers, so if your going on a Saturday evening, it is best to get there a little earlier than later, if you don't like to wait.

“Nice choice for lunch or dinner in St. Cloud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

My go to spot whenever I'm in St. Cloud for business. Service is very good and they have a great food selection to choose from on their menu. Join the mug club for discounts on their micro brews.

“Nice atmosphere - excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

I'm not sure they will appreciate the comment, but this restaurant is something like an upscale Chilis. The prices are comparable to Chilis but it has a bit more high class feel to it. The ribs are excellent, and a full bar will get you virtually any drink. Th staff are both polite and competant and are not rushed and overburdened.
