Grindstone Charley's - Kokomo
We had reservations and we waited an hour Before getting seated then they wanted to put us in a booth which my husband has a wheelchair and then they set us in the bar I wasn’t very happy then the waitress didn’t take care of us as well as she should have
Dined on Mother’s Day. Had a 12:45 reservation. We did have to wait 30 minutes. We expected the wait.
The service was fast, food came out perfect. We left happy and full. The wait was worth the wait. Thank you to all the mother’s who worked today so we could eat! Thank you Theresa our server!
WE were very please. Previous experience on Mother's Day was not met with much pleasure- we had reservations and we were not seated at the time of our reservation because the hostess was seating many people first who came in with the same amount of people as our reservation but without a reservation. We love this restaurant so decided to try again. We were seated at the exact time of our reservation and we even added an extra person who had showed up unexpectedly. Jon Z. did an awesome job and when I accidentally got chocolate on my sleeve he went and got some club soda and helped get it off of my sleeve.
We go here quite often and usually the food is fabulous. On Sunday, it was a little less than....
Maybe being so busy for Mother's Day?? Prime rib was pretty tough instead of tender and even the ribs seemed to a bit tough instead of the usual "falling off the bone". My mom and I still had a good time treating ourselves to a dinner out and the chocolate covered strawberries were a nice touch!
The food was great and our server Jon was the high point of the night, funny, attentive and made our experience exceptional!
The waiter seemed overwhelmed, even when business slowed down. He hardly smiled when interacting with our table; not very friendly. The food was good.
We had Corey as our server & he was great! Food was amazing! Everybody was very friendly. Great place!
Salmon wasn't the best... but service was great!!!
Our waitress was not at all friendly and made us feel rushed to leave. We actually had to stand outside in the cold to finish our conversation. Food was not exceptional. Best item was the fried green tomato appetizer.
Everything was good except that even with a reservation, we had to wait, what I felt, was a little too long.
Yes, we always have a good experience at Grindstone Charley's.
Great food, good service and attentive staff! Great variety on the menu and TVs to keep up with your favorite sports team!
It was my birthday!
The service was great and so was the food
Overall I really like the restaurant so please don't let these comments take away from that. I just wish there were more vegetarian/vegan options. There are pasta dishes, but you can't seem to be able to order them without the meat. It would be nice to have a few choices other than the standard salad and baked potato. Even a vegetarian burger or black bean burger would be nice. They now have the Beyond Meat burgers, Impossible Burgers, and Incredible burgers as well as the MorningStar burgers.
Food was ok, but not great. Food looked processed and not fresh. Service was fine.
Made reservations via Open Table for 5 people. Two of our party arrived earlier than we did and they were immediately. We were then able to join them when we arrived. Our drink orders were take immediately and the server gave us plenty of time to visit with everyone. We like to take our time ordering. We never felt pressured.
Decent food, awful service. Ashley, our server, would ask if we need anything and walk away as we answered and the manager Mike pretended to be deaf when we were overcharged on our check. Awful experience, never returning and never recommending.
My meal was very good. How ever my husband and I ordered our steaks medium well and my husband had to send his back two times. The first time it was " still bleeding" and the second time did not look much different. By the time it was not " bleeding" it was almost to tough to eat. We will not order steaks there again. Our waiter, Jon Z. Was great! Also it is a bit noisy for hard of hearing people. I would eat here again, only I would get the catfish!!! ☺️
Food took over an hour and 15 minutes!!! Always sooo slow!!! What is with that??
Our server was excellent and our food was amazing.
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.
