Granite City, Cedar Rapids Iowa
0

5 posts in this topic

Granite City in Cedar Rapids, Iowa has a gluten-free section on their dinner menu. It's only 5 items, but since we don't go there much, it's enough of a variety for my hubby. I don't know if their other locations have a gluten-free section. It's on the dinner menu only, but hubby was able to order off the dinner menu for lunch. AND...we did not get the deer-in-the-headlights look from our server, so I hope there was a lot of training for the staff!

Same with the one here in Indianapolis - their gluten-free flat breads are delicious!! I was told they were taking them off the actual menu, but would continue to make them on request. Manager I spoke to was very nice and helpful

Their gluten free section is...interesting. In my area they only highlight gluten free options that are also in the low calorie section. There are other things on the menu that are gluten free or can be easily adapted to gluten free (steaks for example), and I'm not sure why they aren't marked as options too.

The service at both of my local GC locations (Wichita, KS) is awful, and even though the gluten free dinners are supposed to come with soup they have no idea if any of the soups are gluten free. I even overheard a waiter telling one customer that the French onion soup was vegetarian (it's full of beef broth).

I'm not sure if GC locations are franchises, and if there are different standards for hiring in different locations, but the service has been consistently bad around here. The last time we went there were so many problems with our waiter that the manager fired him right in front of us! It was insane.

Thanks for the info! I am from Iowa City, and we have found few places I can eat at around here, besides Godfather's Pizza and Mama's Deli in Downtown Iowa City. I would definitely be will to drive to Cedar Rapids to try something new. What sort of food do they serve?

I would call it American food. Hubby had the Simply Salmon over white rice, and then they added some seasonal fresh fruit. This particular Granite City has always had good service and if anything was wrong, the managers themselves corrected the problem. I guess it is different with franchises.

We go to Iowa City every once in a while (Coral Ridge Mall), and we eat at the Iowa River Power Company - they have excellent gluten-free options. It is pricey, though, so we do not go there often.
