    New gf menu with plenty of options! Too bad employees know nothing about it. After ordering a gf burger (on a udis bun) the waiter offered me Mac n cheese or fries as a side both of which were not gf.

    I do like that they have a dedicated gf menu, but there are not a whole lot of options compared to other places. The food is very good. I had the chop salad and the portions are very generous.

    I had read some negative reviews about other Granite City restaurants, so I was apprehensive about coming here. However, I was pleasantly surprised at their new gluten free menu. They now have GF buns. I had the grilled chicken sandwich, and it was delicious. I did not have a reaction. They also have other sandwiches, burgers, steaks, salads, and more on their GF menu.

    Not safe for celiacs. Cross-contamination is a major issue.

    They had a separate GF menu. After placing my order, I didn't have a ton of confidence that there was a good awareness of Celiacs, and I was concerned about the possibility of getting sick. I am happy to say that I didn't get sick and that the food was actually really good.

    Had a hamburger on there gluten free menu and was sick shortly after. The menu selection is small. And I wouldn't count there chicken wings as "gluten free" because they are deep fried in the same grease as non-gluten free foods.

    Waiter was great, food was good. But the manager did NOT like us asking any questions about the menu. She seemed very defensive and put off by us asking a simple question about ingredients.

    Hmm somethings happened here... They downsized to a VERY small menu, it didn't even have steak or potatoes in it any longer. Could be a good thing to keep gluten free items safe but choices were super disappointing

    ordered their Bedda Chedda burger and not on was the burger excellent, but the GF bun was like a bunch should be - light and airy and flavorful, not dense, heavy and cardboard tasting. there were several choices from appetizers, salads, Sandwiches, burgers and entrees! Even a couple of desserts. Will definitely add this to my list.

    Menu was very restricted. They not had wings listed as gf but they are fried in a common fryer. Bonus points for the staff who offered that info and brought me veggies and ranch (which they confirmed was gf). Much appreciated but sad they reduced the menu.

    My family and I have eaten at Granite City three times over the last two months. There steak was cooked GF on designate grill, the sandwiches were great and I loved their gluten free bread. There is a gluten free menu, and there is even a dessert, creme brulee, gluten free. It was delicious. Their fryer is not dedicated gf only so no fries or house made chips. But the salads w/o croutons are great and so is their BLT. Their mashed potatoes and steamed veggies go great with the steak. People with gluten issues should try this restaurant. With gluten free bread, salads, sandwiches, steaks, sides and dessert....they have a lot to offer! Just make sure to request a GF menu and communicate well with your server!

    While Granite City Food & Brewery has a separate GF menu, those with a gluten allergy MUST be sure your server acknowledges this or you will likely get sick. Employees need a better understanding that this condition isn't a choice--it's a reality for those of us with food allergies.

    GC used to have a kickass gluten free menu. That has changed. The menu now has 8 items. 4 salads, chicken wings, and 3 burgers. No fish, no chicken, no sandwiches, no steaks. Their gluten free sides are no longer listed. The best french fry substitute (in my opinion), the baked potato, has also been removed. I eat A LOT of salad being gluten free and don't understand why that continues to be the only option. I expressed my distress to the waitress and she replied with "I just work here". So their staff isn't well trained either. Pizza hut has more gluten free options, and they deliver.

    They seem to have a good selection, but after hearing that there's no dedicated kitchen space and seeing the choices on the regular menu, I opted out of dinner and just had a glass of wine.

    Screwed up my food. Didn't give me a gluten free bun. Then they tired to make it up to me by giving me dessert. The creme brûlée was oily if that's possible and the ice cream was gross and made my stomach hurt.

    Not good for Celiacs. After asking them to take extra precautions to make sure my burger was GF. They served me a burger with a bun that just looked way to good to be gluten free. After 10 minutes trying to flag down our waitress she took it back to the kitchen and it was indeed a gluten filled bun. If I didn't catch it I would have been severely glutened. By the time my meal came out gluten free, my husband who insisted on waiting to eat had a cold dinner. They never apologized or offered to take it off the bill. We will not go back.

    Have gluten and soy allergies. Waiter and I had a hard time finding something I could eat safely. Not a single salad due to soy being in EVERY dressing, including their Olive oil (an olive/ soy blend). Settled on a burger without bun and a bottle of water. the burger was served with one shred of lettuce, a couple of tiny pieces of onion and a razor thin slice of tomato in the center of a big empty plate. Meat patty, water and tip=$20. Won't be back.

    Gluten free menu available! They offer their sandwiches and burgers on gluten free buns. I ordered a steak, baked potato, and broccoli, however. Waiter was somewhat attentive to my allergy in the same sense he was somewhat attentive to the fact he had a table to serve. Didn't want to chance ordering a sandwich "gluten free" and be served one that wasn't by accident.

    Big Gluten Free Menu. The waiter understood issues with gluten, the gluten free menu and how the food is prepared. The chef came to our table and explained how they take great care to prepare the gluten free food options. Dedicated areas for gluten free food preparation. The food was excellent! Highly recommended.

    THEY SERVED MY CELIAC DAUGHTER A GLUTEN BUN!! She had three bites before SHE questioned it. She has been sick since we left and school starts tomorrow. Great! Now we miss the first day of school. THANK YOU! The server didn't care, didn't apologize and still asked me to pay for her meal. She didn't eat anything but those three bites. Horrible! Horrible! Horrible!! Great to have the menu- but you are asking us to trust you with your serving habits. No more and never again.

    The waiter was clueless about the Gluten free menu and became more irritated with each question I asked. He cut me off and said "well I don't have to worry about gluten so I have no clue." Horrible service and wouldn't recommend it. Their chips are fried in a shared fryer even though the menu says otherwise.

    They had a gluten free menu and were very understanding and helpful. However, I ordered a salad from the gluten free menu but when it arrived I was told the salad dressing was not gluten free, so I essentially ate a bowl of lettuce. If you double check that the food is all gluten free I think it's a good place.

    They attempted, but was a fail twice. No dedicated fryers which doesn't leave a lot of options even for things listed on their GF Menu. Burger with GF bun was okay, but again, they grilled the bun and such on the same surface as non-GF. I had a reaction both times.

Very nice about tolerating all of our extra questions but when the burger came there was no bun. They didn't tell us that they were out of buns. Steak was great and nobody seems to get sick.
