Granite City Food and Brewery: Good Eats and Local Beers Just Minutes from The Esplanade
The Granite City Food and Brewery chain of gastropubs is known nationwide for its craft beers, hearty burgers, specialty flatbreads, and boozy brunches that represent its home state of Minnesota. The newest Maryland location is located just a block off the banks of the Potomac in National Harbor and minutes from The Esplanade, and it doesn’t stray from the cool, laid-back atmosphere that the chain is known for.
The beers at Granite City Food and Brewery are made on site, and they include a few signature brews as well as a rotation of seasonal offerings that you can drink by the pint, pitcher, or growler. If beer isn’t your thing, try one of the classic or custom-crafted cocktails — regulars single out the Flying Monkey and Moscow Mule as highlights on the drink menu. Feeling hungry? Reviewers recommend the Old Bay wings as a starter, while the mahi tacos or the Bedda Chedda bacon cheeseburger make a great main course. Brunches are buffet style with a flat fee per person, so you can feast on bacon and sausage, fruit and baked goods, eggs and more to end the weekend right.
