This is the 3rd year that my family and I have chosen Grindstone Charley's in Speedway to celebrate Mother's Day. It was easy to make reservations and there was just the right amount of seating for our family of nine. The room was not crowded. We had room to sit comfortably. The service was great and all the Mother's received chocolate covered strawberries. This was a great way to honor the Mother's. We may be celebrating Father's Day there too.

Fish & chips were very good, chicken and noodles and green beans a bit soggy (overcooked). Portions were huge. Worth the Devour 2/$30 deal, but not special food quality.

Food was very good. Manager should ask how things are near the END of the meal not near the BEGINNING. The menu has too many items without prices, since it caused our waiter to guess the price of a side (he guessed 1/2 of what it was). The $5 burger week is a joke... we only saved $1 off regular price of burger & side. Waiter got my order wrong (didn't write it down) and should not disappear while we're waiting to pay & leave. Service can improve.

The overall experience was ok. Our waitress was either new or something in that lines. She couldn't remember who ordered what and the check out time was extreme. We will continue to dine here, but hoping for a different waiter/waitress.

We had a good time, although the food was nothing spectacular. Drink prices were reasonable. I hate getting surprised by beers that are over-priced ($7 or more). We've had better service, but we've had worse. Overall the dinner experience was just average.

While the actual dining experience was exceptional and high quality, I want to share how they went over and above when I left my purse there and called the next morning. Even though not open yet, the manager answered the phone and told me it had been placed in the safe last night and would be waiting for me whenever I could get there. They opened the doors early for me to be able to come in and get it. They showed they cares in the way they treated my purse and me. Very appreciated!

We really enjoyed our dinner. We met with friends and family from all over Indy and they all enjoyed the food. We had excellent service. Considering this was New Years Eve, we were very pleased with the whole evening.

Made last minute reservations for Mothers Day for 5. We were seated immediately. Mimosas were excellant as well as the filets and barbecued ribs. The food would have gotten 5 stars but the creme brûlée was cold and the topping was soggy.

th, e blonde female manager thinks she can do anything there and obviously feels like she can't be replaced. When I asked her about an incident that happened the week before her only response was that they were probably busy, shrug your shoulders and walked away. The tall African American manager, male, is also starting to show an attitude.
