Took my niece out to lunch on a Friday about noon. We were seated right away. It took a few minutes for a waiter to come and take our order. The good was excellent, but the service could have been a little better. Had slow drink refills. Other than that, it was great. Love the GC dip.

Granite City is an awesome, unique dining experience, with having the brewery visible behind huge glass windows... very cool atmosphere! the food is outstanding and after the recent remodel, the different dining areas are so nice! Even have an outdoor space which is great, weather-permitting... they also have an awesome Brunch... Went there for Mother's Day with my family and... More

Went to eat at Granite City on a Sunday and was pleasantly surprised by their brunch buffet. Server suggested it, and we went on a wim and tried and it. Glad we did! Everything was fresh, hot, and the buffet table was clean. Plenty of choices for those on different diets, etc. Fresh eggs benedict/omelet station, sticky buns brought to... More

After a long drive, we stopped at Granite City to get some food to go. The place was packed but our order was ready within 25 minutes!

Everything I've ordered has been good. Portions are large, and they do like to season their food fairly heavily. I like that, but be forewarned. I've always had great service. Don't be discouraged if you walk in and there are a lot of people waiting--they always seem to seat us with less wait than they say. If you belong to... More

We had not dinned here in a while, so I was glad to see that the food remains consistently good. I had the flat bread, my husband had a burger. The fact that he didn't offer me a bite is testament that it tasted as good as it looked. Will go back

My husband and I went here for a date night the other night. We were seated at a booth by the bar, I was not a fan of the lighting - very dark and hard to see. I did enjoy my meal - bison burger! I love bison and you can not find it much around here. It was cooked... More

The wait staff were very friendly and we were seated after a short wait. The establishment was very busy, and out waitress was spending most of her time at a neighboring table, talking to a friend of hers. The food was average. Most of the dishes are the frozen kind that the kitchen warms up when you order it.

Have enjoyed the food and service in Davenport so I gave this one a try. Was surprised how things were different. Food order was wrong for all party at the table and we was only a party of 3. Appetizers came out with the dinner. Waitress was trying but we was not happy with overall experience. We didn't fault the... More

Stopped in for lunch while in CR based on lots of positive reviews. The beer was very good. I had the Duke pale ale and my colleague went for the stout. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich on a jalapeño waffle. Not good. Waffle was frozen piece of cardboard with no taste. Pork was cooked well but covered in sweet... More
