Love the lunch specials here. Their soups are amazing and love that I can combine a salad, burger, or wrap with a soup. Prices are reasonable for lunch menu too. GC is very consistent no matter what location you choose and food is made fresh and it shows. My favorites are creamy chicken tortilla soup and Asian Chicken salad.

I ordered the Short Rib Flat Bread for the first time. I did substitute the goat cheese with mozzarella. It was the best flat bread I have ever ate! I had to do this review just for this flatbread!! It is unbelievably delicious!!!! I wish I could have it everyday!!!!!!!

Just dropped into Granite city for a quick beer and a lite bite, would definitely recommend the chilli bean soup and pumpkin (beer) lager sounds an odd combination but the beers good and the chilli is even better

We went with a group of 5 business colleagues. We all enjoyed our meals, but the vegetarian in the group really only had two choices. This was my second time here and so far it's been reliably good as a semi-high end choice in Peoria.

Nothing special menu. Service was OK, they get busy but stay attentive. Steak was good. All food was good. Nothing to be negative about. Some of us had salmon. Mac and cheese. Again - all good. Really wanted to try their Blood Orange Bourbon Sour but unfortunately they were out of sour mix that night. Decent bar food chain...

I was greeted quickly at the door and seated right away. My server came to the table and asked me if I had any questions and requested my drink order. Normal stuff as I was looking over the menu for some healthy options the server jumped right in and help with ideas she seemed to know her menu and the... More

We're local so we know this Granite City is a reliably pleasant, friendly, and satisfying restaurant. We got there early and outlasted several parties around us, yet there was no pressure for us to leave. The manager made rounds among the guests to make sure everyone was happy. This is a perfect place to sit outside on a pleasant evening... More

Maybe they spoiled me the first time I visited, but the service was so good. Told them it was my first time and the server was so attentive. Subsequent visits were a bit of a let down. Treat customers like it is their first visit and I think you will get even more repeate business. Enjoyed the cheddar and beer... More

Pork Nachos had very little pork. Tea was the worst I've ever had, I sent it back. Fish tacos were good. Fish/Chips had VERY little fish, and the tarter sauce was just plain mayo. Flies were buzzing around us the whole time. Service was ok, not bad and not great. For what we had, it was a little pricey. But... More
