    Food was all cold except my husband's chicken. Seems everyone's food sat waiting on his ckn because they messed up. He ordered a combo and was told he could sub ckn for ribs for a few $ upcharge. We paid an extra $12.50 on top of the combo price. Also my mom didn't receive all of her meal

    We were in a hurry to pick a place near the airport, that was convenient for arriving friends. Big Mistake! This was the darkest, dirtiest, restaurant I've visited in a long time. Way overdue for a makeover, but absolutely filthy - floors, seats, restrooms - you name it. The staff, bless them, was tremendous, to the point that I wanted to ask them why they didn't find better jobs. The food was marginal from many aspects.

    This was our very first trip to Grindstone Charley’s and the experience was fantastic. We were seated very quickly and greeted by our waitress who really made our dining experience what it was. They’re very large menu had plenty of options for our whole party. We settled on the nacho for an appetizer and they were a huge hit! They’re corn chowder was a show stopper! Between the food, and waitress alone, we will by all means be back.

    I gave this neighborhood restaurant/bar five stars because it is just a neighborhood gem! No, the decor isn’t fabulous. No, the food isn’t gourmet. It’s just such a friendly place with reasonably priced, very good, down-home food. There is a warm vibe, due to the friendly, loyal staff that’s been there for years and the regulars they serve. I think their Saturday prime rib dinner is great, always served exactly to the temperature I prefer. Salads are fresh, sweet potato fries are wonderful. Their fried green tomatoes are the bomb! Highly recommend for this type of casual dining.

I had a side salad also that came with my meal. A lot of food. Great value for your money. Excellent tasting. The wait staff was very helpful and nice

    We had a reservation at 6:30pm for six people and were promptly seated. We were coming in from put of town and in a rush to get to the Colts game, and we were in and out in a little over an hour. Tried the fried pickles, since they seem to be an Indianapolis thing; tasty but very salty. Fun to try. Everyone had typical pub fare: club melt, chicken club salads, burgers, fries or tater tots. They had a good selection on the menu, but we needed to be quick. It all came out hot and at the same time. Beers were reasonably priced, and it was an easy drive to the stadium from there. Great stop for what we needed!

    Came here with friends before going to the Colts game. Food was hot and tasted great! Blueberry Mule was fabulous!! Had a reservation and table was ready as soon as we arrived and loved that they didn’t make us wait until everyone in our party arrived before seating us! Our server, Taylor, was very friendly and very efficient even though she was pretty much the only one working the whole bar area. Would definitely return again!
