Granite City, Cedar Rapids Iowa

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.

    • Hi! My daughter is 19 was diagnosed at age 16. It took about 12-18 month s for her to fully heal from the damage and feel "normal" again. Also because of the damage done she had reactions to dairy, so you may want to try no or minimum dairy until youre fully healed. Just a suggestion. Hope you start feeling well soon!
    • Hi yall! New to this blog, but really glad it exists because I have lots of questions. First off, I'm Allie! I'm 17 and newly diagnosed Celiac after about 3 years of searching for answers. I initially went gluten-free on the recommendation of a friend, I felt better in about a month and then my pediatric gastroenterologist had me do the gluten challenge, and my symptoms were the worst they have ever been, and ones I barely noticed before became very present. I did the biopsy and was diagnosed, it's been about 2 weeks and my symptoms are still pretty bad, although my diet has no known sources of gluten or cross contamination. Wondering if anyone has any input on healing post gluten challenge, any tips or how long it took for you would be quite helpful! Thanks 
    •   Might want to look into a keto diet, I have UC on top of celiacs and keto is working great Yeah I have major nerve and brain issues with gluten, gluten ataxia with nerve issues and brain issues. Seems to cause my body to attack my brain and nerve system. My brain stumbles fogs, and starts looping, the confusion causes me to become really irritable, I call it going Mr Hyde. Like my mind will start looping constantly on thoughts and not move driving me literally mad, or it used to. Now days it is primary the numbness anger but the gut issues and sometimes random motor loss limit me motionless to the floor now days for the duration of the major anger effects. Used to be a lot more mental then painful gut. I did a mental trauma post on it on while back where I came out about all my mental issues with gluten.  
    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there.
