I ate a plain chicken breast and asparagus and I did not get sick. The food is not that exciting, tho.

New owners - waitress said they were told to tell anyone who is gluten free “you know what you can order. When I asked about anything I was told it was contaminated - rice, not GF, Veggies, not gf… Manager came out and said “we can do a plain chicken breast, that’s it”

No longer offering a GF menu, but thought the salmon with asparagus and rice would be safe. Even added a note that if the rice is not GF to switch it out with mashed potatoes. Got the order home to find orzo in the rice. Either they didn't read the note or the staff aren't trained to know that orzo is pasta. Either way, we won't return anytime soon.

They don't have a kids GF menu -- the food is absolutely delicious though. The nacho plate definitely gives leftovers for the kid. Next time we will just share it. They are very accommodating for GF things

They no longer have a separate Gluten-sensitive menu, as an earlier review states. Nothing was labeled as gluten free on the menu. They can do gluten-free buns for the burgers or gluten-free bread for the flatbreads, but the menu doesn’t mention this either.

I got a burger with a gf bun and it was one of the less impressive burgers I’ve had in awhile.

I went to Granite with family I was visiting in Naperville. After asking the waitress if they had gluten free buns she was very kind and she worked with me to go over which foods were gluten free and which were not. However I got very very very sick after going! It was a cross contamination kind of sick. I would not recommend for anyone with Celiacs disease!!

Waiter was very informative and explained the cooks process for gluten free prep (changing gloves often, cleaning the work space, etc). While not on the menu, they offer gluten free buns and burgers and grilled chicken are safe. I had a steak salad and it was delicious!

I ordered a grilled chicken salad without croutons- the mound of shredded lettuce was wilted. I don’t believe I was gluten contaminated but I did end up not feeling well at all after. Generally crappy food, I would just stay away.

I’ve been to other Granite City locations with no issue and lots of good customer service, unfortunately this location didn’t live up to those expectations. First time I ordered the waitress had no knowledge of gluten free. When asked if something contained gluten she said “I don’t know. Probably” and wouldn’t asked the kitchen or manager. The second time, the waitress said they had so much cross contamination and unclean services that she wouldn’t say anything is safe to eat if gluten free (at least she was somewhat knowledgeable). There are plenty of other places in Fargo, definitely skip this one.

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!!

Scratch kitchen & the chef can alter many dishes to make sure they are GF. The current manager’s wife has celiacs & is extremely knowledgeable. The servers are excellent & will ask any questions you wish to the chef. It’s good to be knowledgeable & order it the safest way possible. My favorite dishes that I have NEVER had a cross contamination with are: buffalo shrimp w/o breading, mussels w/o marinara sauce extra garlic, roasted salmon w/ mashed potatoes & asparagus or green beans, impossible burger (sometimes run out of GF buns so I just eat it w/ mashed potatoes, salmon salad, & they’ve started brewing their own hard seltzers—YUM.

I find that it’s a nice variety, but I’m a pescatarian. I can’t recommend brunch, but most celiac patients are taught to avoid buffets.

Great bartenders! It has great vibe & EVERYONE that works their is so sweet. The bar area is like Cheers w/ lots of regulars. They have a 4 seasons room, patio, during COVID they’ve had big tents outside & entertainment on Friday nights in the tent.

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.

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.

Items on menu leading people to believe they may be safe for gluten free diets. However, there is no dedicated fryer...these items are not safe. No education on cross contamination.

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.

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 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

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. :(
