We chose this restaurant because of it's proximity to our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of food. I had a beer flight and it was a nice way to try things out. We also found a coupon online and that helped make our meal even more affordable.

The food is good. The beer is better. Very modern and up to date. They Have a nice patio that is next to the Illinois river. Have lunch and watch the eagles fly.

Mediocre food in a chain setting. Had Mahi Mahi Tacos, disappointing-overcooked and fishy. Should have known better than delicate fish at a steakhouse.

Love the lunch specials here. Their soups are amazing and love that I can combine a salad, burger, or wrap with a soup. Prices are reasonable for lunch menu too. GC is very consistent no matter what location you choose and food is made fresh and it shows. My favorites are creamy chicken tortilla soup and Asian Chicken salad.

I ordered the Short Rib Flat Bread for the first time. I did substitute the goat cheese with mozzarella. It was the best flat bread I have ever ate! I had to do this review just for this flatbread!! It is unbelievably delicious!!!! I wish I could have it everyday!!!!!!!

Just dropped into Granite city for a quick beer and a lite bite, would definitely recommend the chilli bean soup and pumpkin (beer) lager sounds an odd combination but the beers good and the chilli is even better

We went with a group of 5 business colleagues. We all enjoyed our meals, but the vegetarian in the group really only had two choices. This was my second time here and so far it's been reliably good as a semi-high end choice in Peoria.

Nothing special menu. Service was OK, they get busy but stay attentive. Steak was good. All food was good. Nothing to be negative about. Some of us had salmon. Mac and cheese. Again - all good. Really wanted to try their Blood Orange Bourbon Sour but unfortunately they were out of sour mix that night. Decent bar food chain...

I was greeted quickly at the door and seated right away. My server came to the table and asked me if I had any questions and requested my drink order. Normal stuff as I was looking over the menu for some healthy options the server jumped right in and help with ideas she seemed to know her menu and the... More

We're local so we know this Granite City is a reliably pleasant, friendly, and satisfying restaurant. We got there early and outlasted several parties around us, yet there was no pressure for us to leave. The manager made rounds among the guests to make sure everyone was happy. This is a perfect place to sit outside on a pleasant evening... More
