We were given a gift card for this restaurant while we were in town. The service was not good - waitress couldn't get order right and was slow and un-attentive. I had the meatloaf and it was very good but the green beans had no flavor and were crunchy. We were done long before she came back with the check.... More

We ate here with our 3 young children after visiting the Peoria riverfront area. At 3:30 on a Wednesday there were only a few other tables occupied and waitstaff was down to one server as far as I could tell. However this server was experienced and friendly, knowledgeable and thoughtful, so while it took some time for service we were... More

Dinner for 4... 40 min wait while about 1/3 of the tables sat empty... Seating 'alert' system wasn't working. Once seated, service was slow and very poor: only 2 of 4 drinks were delivered to table until waiter was reminded (he wasn't much on details or personality), no eating utensils were provided, even after food was delivered; we scrounged utensils...

We went here before seeing the East Peoria Festival of Lights. The service was okay. The waitress forgot to order some of our items. The food was good.

The filet mignon was amazing. I ordered medium rare and it arrived rare, but it was absolutely perfect. A beautiful thin crispness on the outside quickly transitioning to an incredibly tender core of red meat. Lightly seasoned without overpowering. The pint of vanilla porter was exactly what I hoped it would be. We're only here on work for the week... More

We chose this restaurant because of it's proximity to our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of food. I had a beer flight and it was a nice way to try things out. We also found a coupon online and that helped make our meal even more affordable.

Mediocre food in a chain setting. Had Mahi Mahi Tacos, disappointing-overcooked and fishy. Should have known better than delicate fish at a steakhouse.

Love the lunch specials here. Their soups are amazing and love that I can combine a salad, burger, or wrap with a soup. Prices are reasonable for lunch menu too. GC is very consistent no matter what location you choose and food is made fresh and it shows. My favorites are creamy chicken tortilla soup and Asian Chicken salad.

I ordered the Short Rib Flat Bread for the first time. I did substitute the goat cheese with mozzarella. It was the best flat bread I have ever ate! I had to do this review just for this flatbread!! It is unbelievably delicious!!!! I wish I could have it everyday!!!!!!!

Thank Cheryl P
