I love to try new restaurants, and in every state, and this one was one of the BEST by far! Had their own microbrewery Lager, which was wonderful, the chicken carbonerra, so smooth and creamy, full of fab flavors; the chocolate mousse layer cake with whiskey sauce (huge!), and a really, really good cheddar bacon potato soup. The service was great, the staff was friendly, no complaints whatsoever! Going all the way to MN just to do it again, totally enjoyable experience for us!!
I've eaten here several times and it's been OK. Trendy, casual restaurant, with big portions and pretty hefty price. The appetizers are priced and portioned better. The last time I was here we waited over an hour - in a loud, cold environment. By the time we finally got a table - I was too tired to eat. Try another dining option in Maple Grove instead.

I admit I was put off by the senior citi-hag who cut in front of me to tell the hostess her party had arrived, but that's an indication of the typical customer. We stopped eating at GCB in the evening because it's not friendly to our two young children. The takeout was packed in those oversized thermoformed plastic containers. They tip over in the car and don't retain heat. My wife's chopped chicken salad was a coagulated glob, as if it was assembled and sauced the night before. One of the four princesses standing up front saw they forgot my boys' drinks, so she got them and set them next to my two bags of food. One fell over as I tried to pick up all four things, so I left the pops. In the parking lot, some guy was lurking by the driver door of my vehicle, a 2010 SUV, nothing special. When I came toward my vehicle, he walked across the parking lot and got into his. Overall, a very disappointing visit. Go to Axel's if you want good food AND good service.

My husband and I love coming here, when we can get in. We've learned to beat the lunch crowd by going at 11:30 and when going to dinner, get there by 5:00. Otherwise the wait can be pretty long.
I highly recommend the bruschetta salad or a burger and when they made it, their tomato basil soup. They even have a smaller sized burger for those with smaller appetities. My husband is a big fan of their beer made in-house.

It's pretty good. Better than a lot of places in the same price range. Try the Cuban Sandwich because thats excellent, probably the best I've had. The waffle fries are nothing special, sometimes their better than others. The Northern lights Lager is very good and my favorite of their beers. nice place worth a visit. Hard to get into on Friday and Sat. evenings.

The Maple Grove Granite City is a great place to stop for a beer and appetizers as well as dinner. The food is excellent for a chain restaurant and the burgers are the best! The bartenders are very attentive and the management keeps a sharp eye on things. Busy on the weekends but I recommend it highly!
