Restaurant Review - Granity City, Fargo ND

Last weekend, while we were in Fargo, ND, we arranged to have breakfast with my cousin Lisa. Since she lived in Fargo, it was her job to find the spot.

Her recommendation was Granite City Food & Brewery. Having never heard of it before (remember, we are parents with young kids - we don't get out much). I have since figured out that this is a chain with some 21 locations. Of course, none of these are in Rochester, we would have at least known that!

From their website

Granite City Food & Brewery® is a casual dining restaurant with an on-site brewery. We offer a broad menu of items that are prepared fresh daily & are served in generous portions at reasonable prices. Our handcrafted beers are moderately priced & offer unique styles & flavors not typically produced by major breweries.

We were there during brunch. According to Lisa, they only server this meal on Sundays. This was to our advantage. The food was fantastic!

They served traditional buffet style breakfast. Scramble eggs, biscuits and gravy, sausage links, bacon, two types of potatoes and various baked goods. Many of the items were recipes I'd never tried before. They tasted delicious but not traditional.

The service in the place was great! It felt like all the waitstaff were taking care of everyone. Our drinks never ran dry and all of our questions and needs were fulfilled promptly and with a smile.

Too top everything off, every table is delivered a plate full of Carmel rolls. These were fresh, hot and delicious. Nummy!

If you find yourself in Fargo, on Sunday morning, definitely check this place out! We were not disappointed.
