My wife, our two year old son, and a neighbor decided to go here for an evening meal. We ordered a small pizza and a salad ...some 40 mins later our food had not yet arrived. Upon asking our waitress how much longer our order would take she responded aggressively saying it wasn't her problem that we were behind other customers. Furthermore she said if I had a problem I should speak to the manager. I spoke to the manager and whilst doing so, with son in arms, she verbally abused us. Earlier on in the evening she walked by our table swearing obout a customer. This person is not fit to be working in any restaurant let alone a family orientated restaurant such as grant central pizza. the manager made a series of feeble excuses for why we had not received our order and also told me the waitress had a history of mental health issues. We did not pay for the food that we did not receive and left quite shaken by the verbal abuse I had received. In summary ...do not go here, this is without question the worst service we have ever received at a restaurant.

Grant Central on Cherokee is our favorite neighborhood takeout spot. On those nights when we're just too tired to cook, have too much going on or we get those unexpected visitors, Grant Central's the spot. The pizza is good and I personally love their pastas and salad.

This is a great restaurant. The calzones are great and will fill you up. The eggplant parmesan is also great. The atmosphere is good. The servers are cool without being overly hip. Pretty much everything is good, and it's kid friendly. I see that there are some complaints in here about separate checks from people who are math challenged. I hope that doesn't keep people from trying out this good place.

Some of the best pizza in the city. I love the pasta--you can add any pizza toppings to the pasta. Some of the folks complaining on here seem like poor sports--you don't like an entree so you shouldn't have to pay for it? You ask for separate checks and then don't tip the waitress? Come on. GCP is a laid-back, comfortable neighborhood pizza joint. Not a 5 star restaurant. The staff is not stuck-up and the food is good. Good for dates, families, whatever. Highly recommended.

I just moved to the Grant Park area and had hear that GCP was worth a visit. When my guest and I arrived, the restaurant was empty and we sat at a nice table by the window that looked out onto a beautiful tree lined street. Shortly after we arrived, the rest of the restaurant filled up with baby-bearing families and the noise was bad. I ordered the vegetable lasagne and my friend got pesto pasta. My lasagne consisted of two noodles and a bowl full of greasy cheese. I kept looking, but there weren't actually any perceptable vegetables in it. My friend's pasta was better, but certainly not the best pesto sauce (too oily and not blended properly). The waiter came to collect the plates and after noticing that I hadn't eaten any of my entree, removed it but didn't bother to replace or refund it. The view was the only thing that really stood out about this place.
