Hi, Britt. Thank you very much for your rating! We are glad you had a pleasant experience.
They were out of all steaks and prime rib, I waited a hr and 35 mins before I actually received my food. My server was very kind and helpful tho.
Met my husband and a friend after an event...and it was Valentine's Day so the place was packed! Nonetheless, they found us a corner table. Grindstone's is basically pub fare, but I've had their prime rib a couple times lately, and it is very good! Server was very nice, in spite of the Valentine's craziness. Very good experience.
We had a reservation at 8pm, but still waited about 15 minutes when we got there. We were seated by another table with some drunk people that were swearing left and right in front of my 2 children, while continuing to order more shots, which was frustrating. We finally ordered and thankfully got an appetizer, because we didn’t get our food until after 9:30pm!! The food was okay, but my husband and I both got chicken sandwiches that were both over cooked, and waffle fries that were WAY over cooked. Our kids did enjoy the food though. (My daughter especially loved her macaroni and cheese!) However, without us even asking, we were offered a 15% discount for our extra wait time, which we did appreciate very much. It was a late night for everyone, and a fair experience, but we did appreciate the hospitality at the end:)
Long wait time even with reservations there was a lot of people walking around without masks that no one was in forcing the cdc rules
The worst experience I have ever had. The host had no idea what was going on. She was only seating people once they came up and complained. They were extremely over staffed. Trying to be understanding, but on the busiest day of the year; not acceptable. After 30 minutes of waiting to see a waitress, I went to bar to order. Waited over 30 minutes before asking for manager. Tables all around us were being served. People seated after us, ordered, ate, and were out before we got our food. Manager lied and said everyone was having to wait an hour. Absolutely not true. No apology. Nothing. Do not go here. Absolutely ridiculous.
Laura was wonderful as always. We weren’t rushed even though the restaurant was slammed. Prime rib for two was the best and strawberries dipped in chocolate with our Kailua and coffee was the perfect way to end our evening.
Our reservation was at 6:30 we did not get seated until 7:15. The waitress was excellent!!! It took us an hour to get our food, kitchen was backed up.
A great meal at a reasonable expense with great service.
Hi, Indyleroy. We appreciate the rating, and are glad we could provide you with a positive experience!
A little of our way from Plainfield, but worth it. We were there for the Devour Indy event and ate from that menu.
Fried green tomatoes and tenderloin both great! Friendly server... great experience!
We had Taylor for our server and she was very attentive (not overly) and the prime rib was very good and the fried tomatoes were delicious!
Hi, Lindaw. Thank you so much for rating your experience with us so highly!
The restrooms were out of order but they made sure to let us know right away as we entered. The cocktails were delicious and the food was even better!
Hi, Dustin. Thank you for taking the time to submit a review, we really appreciate it!
great menu selection! the southern fried chicken salad is a fav!
Thank you so much for your kind words, Suzie. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. Cheers, Grindstone Charley's
Occasion was Veteran’s Day. As a former Serviceman, was offered free dinner for being a Veteran. Menu was limited somewhat but decided on the rack of Ribs. Very tender, fall off the bone barbecue with French fries and Mac and Cheese. Order so large I couldn’t eat all in one setting, so took it home to finish later. My Wife had Chicken Stir Fry, which she stated was also filling and delicious. Very thoughtful of Restaurant to honor Veteran’s by serving a meal on the house, but I must say we frequent Grindstone Charles often because their menu has great selections at great prices. Never have had any problems dining at Grindstone Charles as it is casual and semi formal dining with fine service. Great place to dine. Made dinner reservation thru Open Table, made it easy to reserve in advance and eliminate worrying about weather a table would be available when we arrived. A great service. Jim Ryker
Hi, Opentable. Thank you for taking the time to submit a review, we really appreciate it!
Really enjoyed the Autumn specials. They have great values.
Hi, Rosanneb. Your appreciation is highly appreciated. Thank you for the review!
This was a GREAT treat for the wife and I! The food is unbelievably delicious and the service was top notch! We will definitely be back very soon!!!
Thank you for the nice review! Hope to see you soon!
Had bbq pork sandwich. Very good, but way too much food. Only ate half. My friend had filet which was also good.
The food was excellent and my service was outstanding!!!!
Low key place with good home style meals.
It was a very enjoyable experience. The food was great. Service was great. The restaurant was well set up for the COVID experience.
Exceptional service with great good. Couldn't ask for a better experience.
Good food, good service. Waiter a little forgetful but did his best and always came to check on us and bring more food or drink. Would recommend for a simple family dinner, though kind of pricey.
Due to distance we don't visit Grindstone Charleys as much as we would like.However, when we do it is specifically for the breaded tenderloin sandwich. That sandwich is the best we have ever had, just great.
This was our first time at the Rockville location and found it a bit dated but that was not a problem. An overall quiet place but probably due to the seating arrangment(covid 19).
All good. Loved the fried pickles and plenty of fish !
I had the Prime Rib it was good But about 1/3 of it was fat so I dont think that will be my choice next time That was a disappointment I always get the New York Strip Bet it wasnt on the Menue So Next time Ill Try Something different
Our table was waiting when we arrived, our orders were ready fairly quickly, the ribs were great!
Great food at a reasonable price. All waiters & waitresses are excellent!! Always great service and laughs!!
It smells like old, a lot of dust in all its ornaments, super old carpet, the food is not very good and the service is sad.
Great food... friendly staff... overall great experience!
Server could have been a little more attentive to “all” tables and not just one or two of his customers.
Good food, good service, good price!! Convenient location, too.
Just a typical dinner. Good, but nothing wildly fabulous or over the top. Server was attentive, food came quickly. I'd visit again if in the area and was looking to satisfy a variety of different appetites.
We had a large group of 14 and they put us in a separate dining area. The service was so good. We had multiple people with special orders and several kids. The waitress was great, she was so patient and understanding. The food came out quick and was prepared amazingly!! Extremely delicious and we were surprised. I highly recommend this place
This has been one of our “go to spots” for years. Quality & service is still there. This is a pub so if you’re looking for white tablecloths you’ll be disappointed.
Great food and drinks and outstanding service!
Got seated waited over 15 minutes. No one ever came over. We left
Good food, good service, good value! What's not to like?
Food was good, service was good but food was very slow to come out.
Service was great and all the food was very good except my filet mignon. I have never seen or bought one that wasn't an inch or more thick and very tender. Store or restaurant. The one I got here was about a quarter inch thick and not particularly tender. More like sirloin. Margarita was excellent.
