They did not have a GF menu. They sometimes have gf options available ; buns and flatbread. But they were out of all of it when there. I was suppose to trust my teenage server what was gluten free or not. I’m not going back!!

Disappointed. This location did not have the Gluten Free Flat Bread; waitress said it had been a couple months since they had it. I also have issues with vegetable washes and their salad greens are all prewashed, so that was out. Waitress was nice and helpful, but little to eat for me. Ended up with a Bison Burger, with cheese, skipped the GF Bun and toppings. If you want a burger, salad, or a lettuce wrapped sandwich, you will be ok. Sides are a challenge. Waitress was helpful in identifying what was safe to eat.

I had a sandwich with a gluten-free bun (it’s not in the menu but the waiter immediately knew that they have one) and a soup that had no gluten. The overall experience was really good and I had no problems afterward.

Ate here last night and had no after effects. Server was very helpful. I had the Salmon and even though it is naturally gf she had it marked gf so they would know to clean the grill before making it for me. Rice pilaf and asparagus were my sides. No dedicated fryer but many other options can be made gf. They do have gf buns too. Did not flag as gf but it came out separately and the server said that it was the gf salmon before handing to me.

I ordered off the GF menu. I ordered the Bleu Peppercorn Burger, with a side of rice, and drank it down with a Flying Monkey. Then I got so sick I vomited it all up. Not sure what happened, but of course I’ll never eat here again.

Went for a work dinner where they were catering for 70 people. I wasn’t expecting to be able to eat anything. No gluten free menu but some items can be made GF like the burger had a gluten free bun. We didn’t have the usual menu just a set menu as we were a large group and GF was not marked on anything. I asked them for GF options. They asked if I was celiac or just sensitive which for me is usually a good indication they know what they are talking about. They were aware of cross contamination with fries being cooked in the same fryer as gluten containing items and informed me of the ingredients of the components of my meal to check it was ok with me too. The food tasted good!

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 ask 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.

Wonderful! My waiter was very helpful. They made an Overlake sandwich on a gf bun. I had asparagus as my side. It tasted so good, I had to test it with my NIMA device…NO GLUTEN FOUND!

No gf menu, but they can do burgers, sandwiches and salads.

Shared fryer. No gf desserts.

They have a separate gluten free menu (not on their website) but have noted that items are fried in a common fryer.

I ordered the Mediterranean Chicken prepared gluten free that came with asparagus and rice pilaf. The chef did come out later and let me know that rice pilaf is not actually gluten free because it has orzo pasta in it and he suggested subbing in mashed potatoes that they prepare from scratch.

The options are limited when you eliminate foods from a fryer and sides like the rice, but there are several options. I asked questions and felt safe with what was served to me. I did not get sick.

The worst gluten free dining experience I’ve ever had.

Staff was not knowledgeable about GF menu items. No GF menu or markings.

I ordered with a group which had people who could eat gluten in it, and they sent out the burgers on the wrong buns. If I had celiac it would be a miserable few weeks due to that mistake, but luckily I’m only intolerant.

DO NOT GO HERE!!!

Ridiculous. Waiter told me I could order anything with the bread removed (oh really?). I was clearly on my own for what items were gf. I ordered a steak and the green beans were doused in soy sauce. And yes, I did say I have celiac. They are very uneducated.

No gluten-free menu or markings on menu. When I asked staff, they directed me to items that were clearly not gluten-free and then brushed off further questions. I didn't even order food because it seemed unsafe.

My dad, sister and me are all gluten free, they have a gluten sensitive menu you have to ask for. Our server was very knowledgeable about gluten free. My sister had Mediterranean chicken, I had the turkey sandwich with sweet potato fries, my dad had the BLT with crinkle fries. I am by far the most sensitive to cross contamination and I did not get sick. Granite City exceeded my expectations in every way. The food is delicious!

**Do NOT eat here!** IT IS NOT SAFE!!! It is the same corporate owners. New management took this place down the drain. The previous management understood celiac disease & trained the kitchen staff. You know things are going downhill when the staff quits in large numbers. We went in staff members told me not to order any food. “Nothing is safe for you anymore.” We had a few drinks found out where the staff was moving to & now go there instead. It was such a great place that knew how to make items GF. It’s still busy, but it's near Woodfield Mall & tons of hotels, so don't let the crowds fool you.

Gluten free menu contains gluten items. After I let the waiter know I have an allergy that’s when my original order had to change. Do not order the spinach and artichoke on a gluten free bun, it contains gluten. They have rice pilaf listed as a side which also has gluten. Bonus is they do acknowledge that items are fried in a community fryer. Friendly and understanding staff but the menu is misguided.

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 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!!

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.

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.

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. :-(
