Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon. Surprisingly busy, but with only two of us, we did manage to get a table. Service was so-so. Fairly slow at first, and some confusion about what was on-tap. Prices were high for food, and selection of beer was very poor (the 5 standard offerings, plus one seasonal). Overall, I do not plan on returning to any Granite City locations in the near future. They should take a page out of Rock Bottomís playbook on how to run a brewpub chain.

We came late Sunday morning--big mistake. Apparently their brunch deal draws a huge crowd. 40 minute wait to get seated. The place has a serious chain-restaurant feel about it, especially with it being that busy. The beer was ok, nothing to write home about. Food was pretty good, though. A simple question about the beer-cheese soup resulted in the chef coming and sitting down at our table and discussing it, so big points in the service category for that.

The beer is okay...but the service is great. Once again, I was just talking beer with the bar maid and the brewer said, "let me show you the operation". You got to love brewery tours. It seams as though they only ferment and filter the beer there so it does get that bulk packaged blandness you taste in macro beers.

Good beer and food. Went with friends and sat outside. Enjoyed a couple beers and ate only appetizers. plenty of food for the four of us. Friendly staff

Joining the mug club makes this a better value. Tip: club memberships are 50% off every Monday (normally $20). Flat bread pizza is quite good especially the prosciutto olive. Decent menu items, though nothing too inspired. They have a very good Sunday brunch, but be prepared to wait for a table. Service has been mostly good. We had one bad experience in which they misplaced our order, but the manager went out of his way to make up for it with a discount off our overall ticket and free appetizer and desert!

A bit pricy, but I did enjoy the beer and the food. Very elegant. It sure is nothing to go out of your way for, but if you are in Cedar Rapids, stop by for a meal and a brew. The beer is better than most chain brewers (like Rock Bottom) but still far below a good micro.

Itís big, and itís incredibly typical. Food is alright, beer is a decent value but not that great and on the whole itís a bar without soul.

I go here to eat and not for the beer (chicken parmesan is great). The beer is not bad but nothing special. The service is always hit and miss but the food is always good. The usually have their four main beers and a seasonal as well as other domestics and the usual imports. Again, come for the food not for the beer.
