This is a go to place to take friends and family. The food is always consistent and good. The service can sometimes be spotty but the wait for your food once you do order is fast. Drinks are on the high side but the price...More

We have gone here twice to watch Irish dancers perform. Each time we got appetizers (hard to beat $5 happy hour appetizers)! We got tacos, quesadillas and a mushroom/goat cheese/arugala flat bread appetizer. They were all delicious but the flat bread was particularly tasty! Service...More

I just needed a bite to eat and ate here because I was staying at the hotel and had just finished a long drive. The atmosphere was good, the service was prompt and the food was hot and fresh. The bison burger was very good.

They don't have specific "gluten-free" items listed on the menu, however, there are many items that are house-made and many protein and vegetable options as well that would be gluten free. I would feel confident asking the... More

Granite City Food & Brewery(R), a casual dining restaurant with an on-site brewery. Our initial restaurant commenced operations in St. Cloud, Minnesota, in June 1999. Our second restaurant, located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, commenced operations in December 2000, and our third restaurant opened to the public November 20, 2001 in Fargo, North Dakota. We now have 26 stores operating in 11 different states. At Granite City Food & Brewery(R), we serve signature beers, including Duke of Wellington (an English ale) and Broad Axe Stout (an authentic Irish beer), and entrees such as London broil. We offer a broad menu of items that are prepared fresh daily and are served in generous portions at reasonable prices. Our handcrafted beers are moderately priced and offer unique styles and flavors not typically produced by major breweries. Our founders, Mr. Wagenheim and Mr. Burdick, have over 52 years of combined hospitality industry experience. Mr. Wagenheim's experience includes that of corporate executive, owner/operator, manager and consultant for hotels, resorts, and individual and multi-unit restaurant operations. Mr. Burdick, a brewing chemist, has over 30 years experience in the restaurant, hospitality and brewing industry in both corporate and private positions. Fermentus Interruptus™Shortly before we opened our third store, we launched our patented brewing process, Fermentus Interruptus™, which makes micro brewing for multiple locations more efficient. This process, conceived and designed by Mr. Burdick, allows us to ship sweet liquid called wort, from our central brewing facility to individual stores. When this liquid reaches the stores, we begin the fermentation process and complete the brewing. We use Fermentus Interruptus at all of our Granite City Food & Brewery(R) locations.
