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!
Not a great selection and definitely reacted to the food.
Not much of a selection and my body disagrees that it was gluten free.
GF bun is pretty good. A little on the expensive side. They label the fries as gluten free, but they place them in the same fryer as the food containing gluten.
The server had no idea what was gluten free and what was unsafe. She went back to the kitchen at least four times. Their menu was not gluten free, just gluten sensitive, which is a joke because their gluten sensitive Idaho Natchos are cooked in a shared fryer. I was told they have several gluten free dressings and then came back to say only oil and vinegar. I do not recommend this restaurant.
If you have Celiacs do not eat here, if you have a gluten sensitivity DO NOT EAT HERE. They label items with wheat based ingredients as gluten sensitive. They don’t make anything in a separate fryer or environment. Not only is there cross contamination, but they actually label wheat based chips as gluten sensitive!!! Do not eat here if you have an allergy to gluten!!
Cross contamination with the breakfast buffet. The buffet is the only thing available before 11am. If you are gluten intolerant, do not eat here before 11am unless you are going to pay $12.99 for some fruit and water. I dont know how the lunch/dinner experience is so I will give the benefit of the doubt.
New menu contains a good amount of options labeled GS. Dedicated fryer. Our server didn’t know anything about celiac at the beginning of our dinner. I explained it to him and he made a strong effort to make sure I would be ok, he double checked every question I had. Didn’t get sick. Food itself was just ok though.
They use a shared fryer for almost all their GS items. That eliminates most of the options for anyone celiac. If you try it here, be very specific with your allergy. And don't eat anything crispy or fried. :-(
Menu is clearly marked “gs” for gluten sensitivity. Quite a few items to chose from. Our son ordered a kids burger with fries, and we asked for no seasoning on them. There is NO dedicated gluten free fryer. Food was yummy!
I had a great experience here tonight, my husband and I shared the chips and dip (with salsa) I had the Chicken Tinga Tacos, they were SO good! Since menu items are noted as Gluten Sensitive, I suppose it is dine at your own risk, but I had no reaction, and I am pretty sensitive.
Lack of communication between the server and the kitchen cost me two months of aggravation and pain. Servers need to be better informed of what Can happen when they screw up. I’ll never go back there again.
Server acknowledged the chance of CC. they have a new larger menu, but fewer gluten sensitive items. Not even the salads. Took a chance on a naked burger and green beans. So far, ok, but Probly won’t go back.
There is no ingredient list for brunch. No menu for brunch so nothing at all is labeled gluten free. Brunch is not safe at all. The dinner menu has like three things that are labeled gluten sensitive, nothing is gluten free. I would not recommend this to anyone who truly has an allergy.
This location does not pay attention or listen to gluten free needs. I’ve had two bad experiences and will never return. The first time I ordered a GF flatbread as carry out. The hostess quickly realized it was not GF and had them remake it. So I forgave that. I tried Granite City again today, and as I type this I am glutened. I ordered another GF flatbread, had my celiac chat with the waitress. My food arrives and it looked like whole wheat crust, but the waitress assured me it was GF. Well within 15 mins I was nauseous and in a full-blown migraine. They are either completely ignorant or just don’t care, I believe it’s the latter.
I've been to a Granite City in Indy, which had great options. Maybe because stopped for food between lunch and dinner, but this Granite City had fairly limited options. That said the food was decent and the menu and staff knowledgeable about asking for allergy versus sensitivity.
I had a bad experience here, I went there and I made my order but it came back with Gluten after I tested it with Nima, the kitchen manager very nicely made me another dish (not so tasty) and it came back with no Gluten... I ate after everyone else finished which is not a good thing. I will not suggest this place unless you can test it with Nima and be absolutely sure
There is not a separate gf menu and they advertise their burgers as gf because of the bun they can add. However, the ingredients on the burger are not gluten free. Be careful, folks.
The menu was labeled with gluten sensitive options. They said they can’t say any thing is gluten free, but assured me that they try to limit cross contamination.there were lots of options and the food was great!
It’s a good choice, if you’re cautious. The staff was very accommodating and answered several questions. They list some options on the menu as “gluten sensitive,” (GS) but don’t go by that alone. The wings are listed as GS, but my server said he believed they are fried in the same fryer as the onion rings, which have a flour batter. They have a gluten-free buns for hamburgers, but at least a couple of their burgers have gluten containing ingredients. The Blue Peppercorn burger, for example, has onion straws. If you would like a cocktail, I recommend the American Mule. It’s not listed as GS, but after a couple of questions I was able to determine that it is, and it’s good! I had the ribeye steak. It came with some parmesan potatoes and green beans. It was very good and I felt fine afterwards.
Manager took my call during non rush to discuss celiac practices. They scrub the grill and use separate prep spaces when possible. They recommended the flat bread as the safest option. I spoke with the server about cross contamination because of celiac. I was here with a group on a Friday night and it took forty minutes for food to come out. Only half the food came out and the two flat breads were cold. The rest of the food took another fifteen minutes to come out. Twenty minutes after eating I got signs of being glutened. :(
the food was pretty good. I ordered something off of the gluten free menu but I think there may have been cross contamination because i got sick afterwards (not that bad though). So if you do go just make sure to inform them you have a allergy.
Very incomplete GF Menu. Granite City used to be much more friendly to those with gluten allergies and intolerances, but have changed to a BBQ sauce that apparently is not GF. They have GF buns and flatbreads. Staff attitude when asking about GF menu details says I'm asking the wrong lady, but didn't offer to get the right person. Likely an indication of ownership and/or managements desire to serve the food allergy community, their families and friends. Too bad for Granite City. They used to be such a great place to eat with great food!
Pretty slim pickings for gluten free. I can’t eat dairy, either, and the bottom of my salad had tiny blue cheese crumbles despite my warning about allergies. The server felt bad, brought another and took it off the bill.
Used my Nima sensor to test steak, mashed potatoes and green beans. Steak and mashed potatoes came up GF but not green beans. Must have been seasoning on green beans. This is the type of place i would test every time.
Granite City has a great gluten-free menu that includes gluten-free burgers/buns and flatbread pizzas. Personally I love the Sunday brunch buffet: omelet station, prime rib carving station, fruit bar, salad bar, sausage, mashed potatoes, bottomless mimosas. Just check with your server before entering the buffet line.
They have a separate gluten free menu. As soon as I told the server I have celiac, she gave me some recommendations. She even double checked a few dressings and went back and read the ingredients for me. It was a nice experience.
