Granite City Food & Brewery - Rockford
Great brewery feel, back up by good beer and food.
We had a great experience
Ww waited at hostess station for ten minutes to be seated - only one hostess on duty at 6pm. Server disappeared for long periods of time - we had a long wait to place our orders, for our beverages, for our entrees and a very long wait for the bill. We have enjoyed many good lunches at Granite City but we won’t be back again for dinner.
The fish tacos were awful. The table was not wiped off. The was a dried piece of lettuce on the table during our entire meal.
Service was very poor, waitress was overworked with too many table to assist. Food was cold, manager just took it off receipt instead of getting fresh hot food.
The food and atmosphere is excellent. The wait staff are super friendly and the prices are good. You can hold a conversation with the people at your table and not be overwhelmed by the noise volume which is essentially non-existent. I live this restaurant!
Grandsons 18th Birthday
Food quality has really declined. There was no thick rumchata French toast which was my wife’s favorite item. The last time we were there is was brought fresh to the table. This time the waitress said “oh, it should be on the buffet”. There was only some thin regular French toast. Nothing special. The prime rib was the smallest piece of meat I’ve ever seen at a carving table. Food was at best average. Waitress did not tell us about donut station or any of the options.
Experience was great
We were 8 of us. We were seated inside first, but it was cold and it was a beautiful evening, so we asked to be seated outside. The food, drinks, ambiance was wonderful on the patio. Lexi was a great server. I highly recommend the patio for summer evenings.
Great brewery! Be sure to ask about growler deal!
Food was good but I would have wanted to be warned that the Salmon Stir Fry dish was spicy. I would have order the other Salmon choice. The service was pleasant but our server forgot our wine which came with the meal. I usually drink a glass a wine with some bread or a salad and once my entree arrives I switch to water. I had also mentioned in my reservation that it was my birthday but our server did not mention it. We did have a good time and I’ll make another Open Table reservation where we’ll hopefully have a little better experience.
Sat in bar area across from service area. Bartenders were our servers. Servers were chatty, rude to each other, swearing and storytelling. They had run out of several food choices early on a Saturday evening. Food took longer then expected for what we ended up ordering. Very over priced for the quality of food, service and atmosphere.
Brunch buffet. There's a good variety. Friendly staff!
Great Sunday buffet at a reasonable price. Fresh shrimp, omelets, thick sliced bacon. Champagne mule is awesome!!
First time at Granite City.. And I have fell in love. I will definitely be back.
Servers Pleasant and Service Quick
Many Buffet Choices Including a Donut Bar
Took kids to Easter brunch. Price was great but more choices in food was expected. Food tasted great! Service was great as well! Should have had a spot set up for pictures with Bunny as well as table visits
The Easter Bunny Breakfast was wonderful--the kids really enjoyed the Donut Station, fresh fruit, French toast, cartoons on the tv, and meeting the Easter Bunny! Lots of choices at the Breakfast Buffet, server was excellent, Easter Bunny posed with the kids for pictures, and gave each child a plastic egg with an Easter Bunny in it! Fun Family Event :)
food was delicious. my kids got to meet the Easter bunny and had a wonderful time...
I really enjoyed the food and time I spent my family
The food no matter which location is great! The service was not great, waited 15 minutes until I asked the person who sat us if someone could help us. Finally someone came by and then never really checked in on drinks during our dinner. Being a server for many years myself I do understand restaurants get busy but it was a super slow Wednesday so was confused on the poor service.
Service was great, food was awesome! Husband raved about "Not Your Mom's Meatloaf"!
Excellent valentines day deal. Great value and good.
Great food and wonderful service.
A very nice place to eat! Delicious food and great service!
My flatbread pizza was not cooked properly and was served cold. The restaurant was cold and when it was brought to their attention it was kind of blown off, saying we have coffee or hot tea if you need to get warm. I do not like eating with my coat on.
Great service from Emmie; thorough but unobtrusive. Food is always good. Prices are reasonable.
One major problem, I wanted my large pretzel 🥨 on the hook & they didn’t have any they said, so I had a couple beers 🍻 & no food & it was my birthday. Then after everybody finished their food they somehow found a large pretzel 🥨 and brought it to me but I wasn’t hungry so the family took it home 🏡 the whole purpose of me going there was to get my pretzel 🥨 I am a card holding member. Maybe you could send some kind of gift certificate and we could revisit GC soon. It’s a great place!!!
Very nice meal. Party of six. Repeat guest. Rarely, if ever, disappointed with the food and service..... No one said anything to us, but felt a bit rushed towards the end (setting up for Sunday brunch in our general seating area).
Food was even better than hoped for and the waitress was outstanding. Always a good meal and a good time.
Made reservation for New Years Eve—we were seated immediately—server was extremely attentive—great menu selections—I had the chicken limone—so good—husband had steak—cooked to perfection—enjoyed the Oatmeal Stout—took home a growler—the growler is really nice—the desserts were to die for :)
Our server treated us great and is an asset to your resturant.
There was a large group of us. Granite staff were great. Food great
Awesome bloody marys! But the mahi tacos tasted fishy snd i know its fish but I dislike that fishy taste
Made reservations on my phone for 6 adults and 2 young children! Table was ready and service was impeccable. Everyone loved the entres they ordered. Definitely enjoyed on a Friday night!
Definitely worth our 45 min drive. We love granite city. Never had anything we didnt like. Love dessert.. the choc chip skillet cookie with icecream is our favorite to share
Good food and good service.
This was the second time I had Thanksgiving dinner at this restaurant. That means I liked it enough to return rather than trying a different place. The food was excellent, the price reasonable and the service was very good considering how busy they were. Food came promptly and was served at the correct temperature. I'll probably be back next Thanksgiving and perhaps even before then. The only knock off for me is that it's 95 miles away.
Awesome Sunday brunch. So much to choose from! A comfortable and friendly place. Definitely recommend the french toast and cinnamon rolls!
