The Granite restaurant is a convenient stop while travelling on 62 highway through Bancroft. The food is well prepared and very delicious, the wait time is average and the staff if friendly. Conveniently located just off the trail and highway it is a perfect place to stop for more than the traditional fast food. The restaurant is fully licensed and has a nice patio overlooking the adjacent intersection.

We ate here on two occasions going to and returning from a cottage rental near Haliburton. On the first occasion, the Granite was packed and it was a good thing our son had made a reservation. We had a great table in the window; service was quick and attentive, and very friendly. We had a variety of dishes, including burgers, pasta, and a salad, all of which were perfectly OK but rather uninspiring. The second occasion was similar though we sat on the (very small) covered section of the deck because of muggy, rainy weather. Once again, we were very struck by the quality of the service. This is a very good place to stop for a quick meal if you're passing through Bancroft, though I would not suggest it for a fancy evening out. :-) Be aware that it can get very crowded as it is obviously a highly popular local spot!

Hubby and I stopped here for lunch. The restaurant and patio were both very busy. We did get a table right away but the service was a bit slow. We both had burgers. Hubby had French fries and I had sweet potato fries. Everything was excellent. Servings are huge. Prices are a bit high for this area but not ridiculous.

We had a lovely dinner here but it is pricey, relatively speaking. Nice decor with huge canvases of local photos. Nicely decorated. Tried the truffle pavé potatoes- very unique and delicious! Steak was very good and cooked as requested. Very pleasant servers.

We like to eat at the Granite a couple of times each year when we're in Bancroft. The food this time again was superb, as usually the case; all three of us ordered the beef tenderloin medium rare with mashed potato and red wine bacon jus, along with a bottle of wine and dessert. The dinner was succulent, and the ambience superb as well including the guitarist performing this particular evening. Usually we eat on the patio, but cool weather forced us inside. Which turned out just fine - the dining room atmosphere was excellent. The service, however, could have been at a higher notch. For a restaurant which clearly is the top-ranked in Bancroft, and which strives creatively for an exceptional culinary experience, it's a little jarring to be referred to as "you guys" two or three times (there were two women and one man in our party) and no thank you offered with payment, although the service was otherwise friendly. In any case the overall experience was highly positive, and we'll be back.
