“Was better when first opened”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Very average. The brunch was better when they were first opened. The service was awful. The boy that waited on us acted like we were in his way or an inconvinence or something. The bar smells. The staff has lost its pep. The place was much better the first two years it was open. Too bad.

“Good Food No so good Service”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Saturday night dinner and we were seated in the bar. Ok experience with lots of televisions to watch sports. Their draft beer is definitely very good and so was the food. Service however was indifferent at best, it was as if the server was doing us a favor to take our order. Defintely got the feeling that the "regulars" took precedent. Overall somewhat dissappointed in the total experience.

“Foods decent with wide variety, it's just always so loud”
Reviewed November 27, 2012 via mobile

Not sure what's going on with the acoustics in this restaurant, but it's always loud in there. Plates dropping seem to echo, and every time I'm in there someone drops something. Food is good, but feels chain like. Beer is decent. Service is almost always very good, never drops even below average. It's a good go to place if you need a quick sit down lunch.

“A good choice for Sunday brunch”
Reviewed October 30, 2012 via mobile

We went to Granite City not knowing about their Sunday brunch, hesitant to have the brunch we were coaxed by the waiter and we were pleasantly suprised by the quality of the food. Eggs, salad, bacon, sausage, chicken, cheesey hash browns, French toast, eggs benidict, waffles and more I can't remember.
Very good quality and they kept the trays of food freshly filled.

We sat in the bar area and were able to watch the football game while we ate.

Five of us ate all we could for under $90, not bad! (including beverages, tax)
