We ate dinner there two nights. The seatjng was fast, the servers were great and the food was wonderful. Try the margarita flatbread, the cheeseburger, fish and chips, spinach/artichoke dip and chicken wings and wedge salad. All really good! The decor is very neat too - stone and wood. Our server was Justin and he was fantastic!

Enjoyed a nice Thanksgiving dinner here this year. Food was good and the format awesome. Staff not as attentive to detail as they should.

We visited Granite City on a Friday night. No crowd. Decor is nice, a rustic theme. They had high tops and lower tables. The food was upscale bar food. Burgers, flat bread pizzas, fish and chips, pork loin, meat loaf, and steaks. I had bedda chedda burger with bacon and fries. It was a huge burger with a mound of... More

Good restaurant with great beer flights. A bit noisy but great if you are staying at the Drury Hotel. The maple bacon flatbread was a bit too sweet but without the bacon it was great. Their Cosmos are also quirky so be warned!

Love the drafts and fleets. But ordered coctails that never showed up and food took almost half an hour to appear. I don't know if they lose orders in order to have you order more drinks or just poor coordination. Food is good when you get it

The food is normally excellent. However, this time it was just average. My friend and I ordered room service. It was delivered in a timely matter, but her chicken seemed bland and the potatoes did not have a good flavor. I had beer battered fish and fries, with coleslaw and that was pretty good, but not the exceptional taste that... More

Description
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.
