It was the first time we had been out in quite some time with the pandemic and happy we selected Grindstone on the Monon. The food was top notch and the service was excellent. Couldn't have asked for a better night out!

Had fish & chips. Too much batter plus much was soggy on the bottom. I had baked potato & it was fresh & yummy. French fries & slaw were good. Tarter sauce tart & too much liquid.
Had dessert (creme brûlée cheesecake) & it was delicious.
If we go back won’t have The fish and chips.

Service was good. Food was ok. Portion size was good. Fillet came out a little more rare than a medium. Jerk chicken was pretty spicy. Prefer an iceberg salad over the one offered. Not a bad place to go, just needs a little tweaking to make it great.

We had a really nice dinner here. Our waitress was an absolute delight. Nice place to chill and perhaps catch a game on the large-screen TV.
Food was OK, though the rice in my wife's dish was way undercooked. Prices are good, not dirt cheap, but not exorbitant for this fare. Would probably come back.
