Business dinner, the waiter could have been better. The portions are huge, we had a couple different salads. The salmon on the salad was cooked perfectly. Pasta dish was good, no complaints. No one ordered house brews, so can't comment on those.

I was here with two friends a week or so ago. The menu was different, and not quite as good. The service was so slow, we were there for two hours. However, the mashed potatoes and dessert were as good as ever and the pasta portion size was enough for 3 meals. They have great drinks if you drink alcohol.

Went to dinner with another couple expecting a solid, reliable Granite City experience. Got everything but that. The menu is changed, and I understand that restaurants do that. But this was extreme. Portion sizes nearly cut in half. Prices up at least 20%. Service was slow, and servers couldn't answer basic questions about the menu. Our bill for two with... More

This is another restaurant that we had been going to since before they opened to the public, but then they changed their menu and prices and we don't go there anymore. The food was not good, the service was very poor and it's very pricey. They took away some of our favorites, so we have quit going here. We tell... More

Great midweek dining that makes you feel like it's a weekend. Nice beer and wine selection and wonderful fish tacos!

Fantastic spot in Cedar Rapids for a great meal. Beer and food are always good. Family friendly or a night out with friends. Try the meatloaf and the Bennie beer.
