I absolutely love Grindstone on the Monon! It has quickly become a favorite in our family. The prime rib is always excellent, French onion soup is my favorite, and the service is great!
Service + food was terrific!
We are regulars at Grindstone on the Monon and enjoy everything on the menu. This visit was after 7 on a Wednesday and we enjoyed it a lot more than last week on Thursday when they had live music but to each their own.
We highly recommend Grindstone on the Monon, great food and staff!
They have some really good food for the price. Steaks are very good tender and cooked and seasoned very well. The service was excellent. The server stopped by our table at least 5 times and filled our drinks. I would recommend Grindstone on the Monon.
Love sitting outside! The inside restaurant was packed however. We would not have been comfortable sitting inside. Good service. Nice rose wine (bottle was $38).
Thank you so much for your kind words, Cindyfromindy. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. Cheers, Grindstone on the Monon
Entertainment tonight. Crowd noise overwhelmed the Entertainment.
Great food and service. Sat outside and had a nice view of the trail. Would definitely go back.
Hi, Lindam. Thank you so much for rating your experience with us so highly!
Great place. Even better service. Love being able to make reservations. Live music on Thursdays. Fun.
Hi, Timothyw. Thank you very much for your rating! We are glad you had a pleasant experience.
Loved being outside on the patio!
Love the outdoor seating option, and service and food were amazing as always!
Easter dinner. Great as always.
I scheduled a reservation for Easter Sunday after our church service. I put in the notes that we would need a sling and would prefer to be sat outside. Closer to our reservation time I received a call from the GM of Grindstone just letting us know he was getting us a table ready but due to outside availability a sling wouldn’t quite work. We appreciated the heads up and loved that they had a table ready for us as we walked in and were greeted by name by the gentleman who had called us. Our drink order was taken by the bartender as our server was busy ringing in orders (totally get it, we have both worked good service so understand) bartender was super sweet and brought over our drinks within I want to say seconds of taking our order. The appetizer (cheese curds) was amazing along with the Mac and cheese, prime rib and nachos! Overall a really great experience.
The food was cold when it came out and had absolutely no flavor to it.
The food was fine overall. The bread appetizer comes with two types of bread. The one I liked was more sweet, the other was hard. Our filets were not overly flavorful and mine was not done correctly. The baked potatoes tasted like they were cooked with onion or something. It had a different taste. The hamburger as well as the brisket and macaroni platter were good. Waitress was nice. She suggested a beer I hadn’t tried (upon me inquiring on if they had a seasonal beer) and it was okay. I would have preferred to have a different one, but she didn’t ask if I liked it. She forgot who got what food and I’m assuming she may have wrote down the wrong doneness on my steak, I asked for medium well and it came back medium. They didn’t even bring steak knives for our steaks and we had to ask for them and had to wait for a few minutes to start eating our steaks. As we left not one person spoke to us. They weren’t helping anyone else at all and definitely saw us. We expected better food and service for $150 bill for 5 people. It was fine, but I’m not sure I’ll go back. High prices for mediocre food and service in my opinion. To be frank, my child commented to me that we had way better service from Bob Evans a few days ago.

Anna was a fantastic server and food was solid.
Hi, Opentable. Thank you very much for your rating! We are glad you had a pleasant experience.
Everything was delicious! Thanks!
Hi, Drrose. Thank you for taking the time to submit a review, we really appreciate it!
Great atmosphere and phenomenal food! We all had to try each others and each dish was fantastic! I had the chicken and noodles and turkey felt like homemade comfort food!
Enjoyed a good lunch inside the restaurant. The salmon salad (full) was huge and delicious. The waitress was attentive but not chatty and kept our glasses full throughout the meal. Prices are reasonable and so many food options at varying price levels. Will be going back. Looking forward to when it's warm enough to eat outside on their patio again.
Hi, Jshedd. We must have done something right to get such a good rating from you. We really appreciate you taking the time!
Food and service were outstanding!
Hi, 60thbirthday. Thank you very much for your rating! We are glad you had a pleasant experience.
I had the seared scallops which were very tender and seasoned well. My friend had the pork tenderloin which they also said was very good.
Our server, Jasmine, was knowledgable about the food and very pleasant. She made several recommendations which were spot on and even gave us her unique description of how the french fries tasted!
Guests were spaced apart reasonably without crowding. At no point were we rushed to leave.
The only detractor was that random, very sweaty people came in from running on the trail to use the rest room and then left! Since this was a Saturday evening, I thought this was a bit odd, but it did not stop our party from enjoying a nice dinner and a few glasses of wine.
I will definitely be back.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Momandsondinner. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. We appreciate the kind review =) Cheers, Grindstone on the Monon
Green beans were covered in bacon grease. So a healthy food was made unhealthy. So disappointing . Menu did not say green beans had bacon in them.
We appreciate your feedback, Nancyw. Don't hesitate to reach out to us at (317) 763-1100 or firstname.lastname@example.org m. I'm very sorry you didn't like the green beans - would love to offer some comp cards for you to try something else - please get in touch with us.

Wonderful Fish & Chips Dinner, Cole Slaw was very good. Had enough fish to take home and ordered a side of the cole slaw!!! Excellent bar area seating and bourbon selection.
Hi, Mikel. These words go a long way, it motivates us to work even harder, thank you for the review!
Service was excellent on a busy Friday evening; was seated near the door to the kitchen and it appears the staff work well together to get the food out. The food was nice and hot. They do need some type of sun shades for the dining room windows for evenings when the sun is blinding.
Hi, Debd. These words go a long way, it motivates us to work even harder, thank you for the review!
This was our first visit. The menu was extensive and our waiter was wonderful. We really loved the entertainer, Matt Record. He played great songs and was very talented. I hope to see him again.
Hi, Dawn. Thank you for taking the time to submit a review, we really appreciate it! We hope to have Matt back in to play soon =)
Everyone had a great time in our party of 5. The food & wine were delicious as was the service & our waitress was very attentive & friendly! We will be back soon.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Suem. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. Cheers, Grindstone on the Monon
The prime rib was fabulous! A huge, thick slab! Very tender! One was cooked medium and one was medium rare. Both were perfect! It was served “au jus”, with our sides of baked potato and house salad (huge!), with sour cream and horseradish sauce. (The only thing missing was a dinner roll, but that is no big deal. ) We were too full to have desert. Will definitely return!
Thank you for the review Carolyn! Glad you had a great experience!
Consistently excellent service and food!
New spot to us. Good size servings and very tasty! Will definitely be back.
Great place to have a drink and good food! Interesting menu items
Our server Ann made our whole over experience very pleasant. Her knowledge of your wine selection was the best we've ever witnessed. She was extremely helpful.
Hi, Opentable. Thank you so much for rating your experience with us so highly!
Menu sounded great. Food was meh. Good, not great.
The food was great and the atmosphere was good too.
Hi, Michellef. Thank you for taking the time to submit a review, we really appreciate it!
Seated right away per our reservation. Food was timely. Spacing in bar area was good. Only complaint is the House wine is over priced.
