Grindstone Charley's - Kokomo Ratings and Reviews
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
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.
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.

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!
The food was very good. Menu has a lot of choices at affordable prices. Atmosphere was quaint. Service was very timely and the food came quickly. Our Opentable reservation put us ahead of an entryway full of folks waiting for a table. Our wait without a reservation would have been over an hour.
We made our reservation online at 7pm through open table. When we showed up at 6:55 we let them know we were there. We got seated at 7:35 and everyone there waiting were seated before us. It was pointless to make a reservation online. The service was slow. In fact we did not get back in our car until 8:30. My wife and I have been here several times but it was our first and last making a reservation.
My wife and I enjoyed our meal here on New Year's Eve. It was really busy, so we were thankful that we had made a reservation. We were seated quickly and our server was very attentive and friendly. Our food was great, and we thought it was a great value. I really enjoyed the fish and chips. We look forward to visiting again.
Our waiter, charlie??, was excellent! There was 11 of us and he was great at taking our orders, keeping them straight and keeping our glasses filled. We had two birthdays and he made it special with song and free desserts for the birthday guys. Food was delicious. We all had a great time!! Thanks!
My husband and webt here for Valetines Day. Food was good. My husband's steak was under cooked so he sent it back. It took 20 minutes for them to fix and when the waitress went to get it tge cook said it had already been brought out. She apologized and gave us free chocolate covered strawberries even though management didn't want to.
We really had a great experience. Making a reservation for Valentine's Day was a great idea and we didn't have to wait. We had a really good server and the food was great. I was a little skeptical about making the reservation and how it would work, but the staff did a fantastic job and the place was packed. Everything seemed to run smoothly. Had a really nice time and would definitely do it again and recommend it to our family and friends. Thank you!!!
