Excellent service, we were even offered a brewery tour. Small but decent lunch menu, although my Chedda burger was VERY heavy on the cheese and bacon, but frankly light on the burger. The cheddar ale soup was fantastic, and the pretzel sticks were soft, warm, salty and satisfying in the delicious cheese dip (which tasted exactly like the soup ...).... More

Granite City is becoming one of my favorite restaurants in the area. It is a nice looking restaurant with great service. The menu has numerous items I like. On my most recent visit, I had the northern cheddar soup and a sandwich. Both were excellent. I recommend GC as a great place for lunch or dinner.

Bad service. The steak was a $15.00 ribeye steak and over cooked. Would not return. Three party group and all had the same opinion. Texas Roadhouse next time.

I'm not really sure what was happening when we arrived but our first waitress was very upset after we waited quite awhile on our drinks. We were saved by another waiter that was clearly great at what he did. The food was pretty good. Desert was fabulous! I had the cheddar soup and it was worth having. Fish tacos were... More

I tried GC on the advice of a coworker who had been to the Davenport area before. I sat at the bar and enjoyed the friendly bartenders and atmosphere. Tried their mediterranean chicken and caesar salad and both were very tasty. There were a friendly group of folks at the bar that evening which made the visit even more pleasant.... More

We tried Granite City for the first time on a busy Friday night. Got to the restaurant about 7:15 knowing we'd have to wait, but looking forward to sampling some of their micro-brewed beers. When told it would be a 30-35 minute wait, we lucked into a couple of seats at the bar and figured things were really going in... More

We just had the best shrimp tacos! A bit spicy, but so flavorful. Just as good was the service. Which in my option is just as important.

I had the meatloaf for the first time...yum. I'm glad I made this choice as it was very good; served on properly cooked, crunchy green beans and tasty mashed potatoes on top. I only rated four stars because my wife's tacos came out cold.

Went with a group of 6 and got our food quickly. The portions were very large and most of us took home a left-over box. We had burgers, bison burgers, ribs, turkey sandwich. It was all good. The burgers were cooked to our liking (well done, medium, medium rare). The bison burger was hand-pattied so I knew it was fresh.

Very busy but had good food. Would of been nice if we went when it wasn't as busy. Worth giving a try. Although if busy check to make sure they give you a pager that works. They gave us a broken one and we had to wait 15mins longer then we were told. Saw wait staff use their fingers to... More
