Went today for a group event. Ordered a double IPA, tasted it and it was sweet tasting with almost no hop smell or after taste. Then tried the house pale ale - neither were decent tasting, and neither fit their category of beers. I even had others taste the beer and they said I did not get what I ordered,... More

Good food. Service OK. In 3 visits, just too loud for me. Hard to carry on conversation at our table due to noise level. Each visit was in evening at fairly busy time, but still...just too loud. And I am not at all hard of hearing. Might use for carry out, but will go other places where I can hear... More

We come to Granite City at least once every other month. It is one of those restaurants that you know you will always have great service as well as wonderful food. They have a large menu with lots to pick from. We have never had anything that wasn't good. I also love that they will bring carrots and ranch for... More

Met friends we hadn't seen since high school here for dinner. Great food and plenty of it. (Try the French Onion soup!) Ordered a scotch and water. Waitress brought a shot of scotch (Glenfiddich) , neat, in one glass and a glass of water. Got a good laugh from that. Overall service was good. Atmosphere was quite noisy which made... More

Doing my college schoolwork at the bar with a two pull beer. The bartenders are really nice and polite. The music swaps around a little bit. And when I need a snack, I just order off the menu. I love going here instead of the library...and I have a 3.9 out of 4.0 on grades.

Friends like the beer. We like the Sunday brunch. Great burgers and ribs. The loaded waffle fries were great prior to the meal

We had a large party and the restaurant and server did an great job with food and drinks. We had over 20 people and the server was able to provide separate checks, and they were all correct!

Always a great place to go! The service is always good, maybe a little slow when they get really busy. Try a local beer they are great! Wonderful Sunday brunch and always plenty of food. A little on the pricier side of things, but well worth it!
