Tried this place out on an off day when I had to meet xscottypx to exchange a beer with him. The place is in a big strip mall on Olive in Creve Coeur anchored by a Dierbergís supermarket. The interior reminds me of any new suburban strip mall restaurant thatís trying to be more upscale than it is; lower lighting and more stone, with wood trim. I pulled up to the bar and had a sampler and lunch. The sampler had 5 year-round beers and 3 blends- not seasonals, but blends. I thought that was pretty cheap, even if one had its own tap. The menu is big and my food was decent. The beer was disappointing, though. Nothing special at all. The bartender was super nice. Doesnít appear that the beer is brewed on site, like at a Rock Bottom. I guess it beats other chains for a meal if you have limited options but donít go here for beer or youíll be disappointed. Iím not seeing out any other GCís.

A brew-pub chain, this oneís located in the county near 270 and Olive. Itís the only brewery for some distance, which definitely plays to its favor. A friend described this place as Applebeeís crossed with Gordon Biersch, which is about right. Decent, generic American food. True-to-style, fresh but forgettable microbrews. Good sampler offering and pitcher specials. Friendly servers and reasonable prices.

(Visited 09/2009): The Creve Coeur Granite City location is on Olive Blvd in a strip mall not too far away from I-270. There is plenty of parking available out front and on the side.
The inside has a layout with the bar on the right side of the establishment and restaurant seating on the left. The floors are stone (granite?) tile as are columns throughout. There is a lot of wood in the furniture and walls too. Brewing equipment is visible behind glass on the bar side.
The beer selection is pretty standard for a brewpub (especially a chain). They have around 6 taps with offerings from a Light to a Stout. Nothing really unique in the lineup, and all the beers are average or below. They offer a beer "platter" of samples for $3.75.
Service was good on a weekday late dinner. The server was very attentive and knew a little bit about the beers.
The food was pretty good. I had the pasta special and was pleasantly surprised that it was fairly tasty.
Overall this place is pretty far down the list of St. Louis area brewpubs, but if you are in Creve Coeur or the immediate area it might be worth a stop.

Went in for dinner thru the week, was not very crowded. The bartender was very good, knew his brews and suggested several different brews per food selection. We tried the sampler and the bartender concocted a couple of special brews for us, very nice. Suggested we join their reward members club to sample new brews before the general public, so we did. Decent atmosphere and decently priced food and brews, will definitely visit again.
