Grindstone Charley's - Kokomo
Friday - Saturday: 11:00am - 11:00pm
The food and service are always excellent! We meet my parents there a lot because it is half way in between for both of us travel wise in Kokomo. We met them again for Father's Day last weekend and the air conditioning must have been out. Since my parents are in their upper 80's this posed a real problem for them. They were pretty miserable throughout the meal and we didn't linger very long. I'll be sure to check on the air before making a reservation again this summer just for their comfort. To be fair though it was a 90+ degree day with a heat index of over 100 degrees so I'm thinking there could have been many issues all over that day. As I said the food and service were still wonderful as always.
Messed up one plate wrong food. No air conditioning. Food wasn't all that great for $100. Appetizers were good. Service was good. Drove 60 miles to eat here. Not again.
Service was alright, waitress didn't seem extremely knowledgeable but food was delicious. Some drinks were forgotten or wrong and they were out of Titos.
Mother' Day luncheon. Surprisingly quick service with a packed house.
Food was great, reserved table early in the day but still waited 15-20 min.
I met my family in Kokomo to celebrate mother's day as we live all over the state. The wait staff was so patient and wonderful to us as we waited for all of the members of our party to arrive. Our food was delicious and we had a wonderful visit. Many thanks to the crew for making our time together so wonderful.
Very nice restaurant, good variety on menu, good service and tasty food.
Made a reservation. Checked in. Waited 50 minutes and when I asked if this was standard for online reservation the same employee I checked in with told me they didn’t know we were there. 3 hostesses and they couldn’t keep track of us.
Good food and good helpings, wait staff was attentive and curious. I would recommend it to a friend
For not being busy, service was slow. Food was luke-warm & the steak was well done.
Grindstone Charley's was our destination for a lunch date with extended family with all of us coming from different locations. We found the atmosphere to be very pleasant and relaxing. The artifacts on the walls plus the stained glass added to the ambiance. The food was delicious and the wait staff did an outstanding job! We will certainly be back!
We had fantastic service and fantastic food.
Great waitress and friendly service. Loved the open table reservation option... got right in on a packed Friday night!. Great drinks, appetizers and ribs!?
Love the food and atmosphere. Our waitresses have been very good and attentive. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.
We had great friendly service. Food was delicious and the price was well worth the food quality and portion size.
food was good but disappointed by portion size. service was not great. Not worth what I paid for the meal.
We celebrated my sons 30th B-day and all I can say was our experience was exceptional. Great food, waitress, staff. Thank you for helping us make our sons day a special one. Thank you
Food was great, service was good
Second week in a row to eat here. In our reservation. we specified we wanted the fantastic server we had the week before, Jon. He was once again, spectacular in his service! The food was again, fantastic and we absolutely have added this restaurant to our "regular" visit list. I would make one suggestion. In your reservation process, you offer seating as "Standard" or "Bar". I would suggest under Standard, to offer TABLE ONLY as a selection. Some of us "larger" people cannot fit into the space a booth allows.
We hadn't been there for awhile but I received a email about the opportunity to go for a evening for New Years Eve , so we ask friends to join us , it was a GREAT decision, food was awesome, service was excellent, Great waitress , would definitely do it again
Great table size for a group of 8. Plenty of space. Doesn't take long to get your meals even with a large group.
I loved the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room with many tvs! My sons ordered the Buffalo burgers with waffle fries and thought they were great. My husband and I ordered filet mignon...very lean and tender. My mom ordered the chicken and noodles on mashed potatoes...huge home made portion. Service was great..never had to ask for drink refills. I definitely would return to try more dishes.
Our server William was great, friendly, knew his stuff and one of the best servers I have had this year. The food was very good. When I called the restaraunt because I was having troubles making reservations, the manager was helpful and walked me through the process. I would definitely recommend Grindstone Charlie's of Kokomo.
Worst dining experience through Open Table I ever had. Bad bar food coupled with terrible service.
I liked the online reservation program which worked very well. It was crowded due to Father's Day, but the staff and everyone seemed very well prepared for the day. The food was good and the waitress friendly.
Excellent food options, food for the whole family and with the summer options even better. They have a great drink menu as well. It is a little noisy the way it is set up but it they were busy.
Good food, good service! Reservation needed due to large group. Nice experience.
It was myself with my son and granddaughter and we all were very pleased with the Food and service. Our overall experience was very nice.
It's one of our favorite places to eat. We just wish there was one in Westfield
Called 2 hrs. ahead for reservations. Got seated in just 10 minutes. Studied menu of large variety. Ordered food which took only the normal wait time. Food was good and nice servings.
Price was reasonable. Overall, we both enjoyed our meals and our dining experience. We will
come again, from Noblesville, IN ( 30 min. drive). Not bad for Friday night 6pm.

It was Mothers Day and very busy, the place was packed. We had reservations , but only had a short wait. The staff was friendly, the food was delicious! We will definitely be back.
This was the first time I had made a reservation using Open Table and it was Mother's Day. The reservation process was very simple. Since this was the first time I had made a reservation I arrived approx. 10 min early, just to see how the process was going to work. We were seated about 5 min after our reservation time, not too bad. I wasn't happy with the seating! We had four adults and one child and we were seated in a four person booth with a chair at the end on the aisle. Very cramped for four adults when you can't spread out to the end of the booth! This was right at the entrance to the dining area, a busy area! I know that Mother's Day is a challenge but I was a very disappointed with our dining experience that day! This is normally one of our favorite places to dine!
We chose this restaurant to meet at 2:00pm on Easter Sunday, as Kokomo was half way between for family from the north and south in IN. They took reservations on Easter, and the staff and manager were fantastic as accommodating us to a different table (after a short wait) to accommodate 6 adults, a 3 year old and a 5 month old. The food was good, and the place had the casualness that our group needed. Everyone was very cordial...on what was a busy hectic day for them!
Like that this is one of a very few restaurants that take reservations. Nice
We went on Valentine Day it was busy! We walked in showed the reservation note was seated in 5 minutes.( while others waited for awhile) We ordered the Prime rib which was outstanding. Our server was very friendly and caring.
Reservations for 7 pm. Seated at 730 pm. Not staff issue. Very crowded, Staff handled it well. Customers at table overstayed visit. No problem. Waitress and food was beyond excellent.
Great meal. My wife said her fillet was best steak she's had in a long time.
We went on New Year's Eve. They were really busy but the stress was not apparent. Everyone, including non-wait staff, was so friendly with words and smiles.
Our go to place in our home town, have one great waitress we like to deal with in a section we must have. Depending on your serv
We really enjoyed our dinner and the waitress was very on top of it. She even took special care of our son.
