This has quickly become one of our favorite places. The staff is exceptional! Friendly, knowledgeable and always willing to help in any way - especially in making beer, wine, whiskey and food recommendations. They always go above and beyond in service. Oh, and the food is excellent, too!

First time there. Brunch was wonderful, from the traditional Bloody Mary to the French toast and pulled pork Benedict, all was scrumptious! We will definitely visit again and recommend to our friends.

I’ve been to this venue under several names over the years. On street parking with lots nearby. My date and I both had pasta dishes which were good. Very attentive service but the noise level made it difficult to talk.

Parking can always be an issue with a restaurant that is downtown. They were not extremely busy, had our choice between a table in the bar and a booth, which we took (the booth). Waitstaff was there pretty quickly, asked if we wanted any appetizers. My soup came out pretty quickly (french onion). Was good, but could have actually had a few less onions and a bit more broth. Also would have been escalated had the put in a splash of cognac at the end! I ordered fish and chips, was a huge filet. Very good. Husband had 10oz prime rib and baked potato. Stated potato was warm but not hot, as was the meat. Had to ask for horseradish, which wasn't hot at all. Water served was in a bottle, cool but not cold and no ice served in a glass. As I was only drinking water, a larger glass would have been nice. I didn't ask for one. Will probably go back, but more for lunch and not an evening meal.

The reason we picked this place was because they accept reservations. The reason we’ll go back is due to the food, service and overall great dining experience. We had 6 in our party and Everyone was impressed. We can’t wait to go back! Great find!

Worse seat in the house. Middle of room next to kitchen and bathrooms. Little room to move! Ask to change tables..several empty but waiter said she thought they were reserved! Didn't ask anyone! We also reserved a table! Waiters carrying out trays of food right over my wife's head. Large corner table was empty was given to two people. No ice for water.

Very good menu variety and food was delicious. Server didn’t offer any type of beverage when he 1st came to table ... odd. Otherwise they were so efficient that they loss drink money on us... salads and dinner came out very fast. 1 drink dinner for us. Didn’t offer dessert either... not that we wanted it. It was an excellent dinner... less than hour we were in and out. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

We had a very nice evening..
It was slow as the parking was all blocked off due to the paving on 10th street scheduled for the holiday weekend.
We had their famous Grindstone tenderloins, and they were great as always...
This time they did not come with the usual bun...
The bun looked to be a kiddie bun, and appeared crushed, but grilled .. and like it was for a childs burger..
That was confusing..
But thought less bread was a good thing..
Micheal's french fries had mostly slid off of the plate, somewhere between the kitchen and our table on delivery, as the order was not a full order, and one of the fries was on my plate... We requested the fries be replaced that were missing, and the manager who took our request forgot us...
We inquired again and the fries came, after we were finished, with an appology, and a card for a free appetizer on our next visit.. It wasn't busy, and the manager was mortified that he forgot... He said it was not like him to forget...
There was something funny with the quality of the fries. Like the oil wasn't hot enough, as they were not crisp.. Or maybe had sat to long in the pan, after they were cooked....
Even with the errors, we still had a good time...
Loved the high top, window seats.. I think those are my favorite tables in the restaurant...
It would be nice if they decorated with window boxes and flowers outside on the sidewalk on the East and Northside of the windows....

This was our first time eating here, and we will definitely be back. It was Father’s Day so I booked a table for brunch on Open Table. We were greeted and seated right when we walked in. The food was awesome and the portions were just right. We all ate breakfast/brunch items and everyone loved their food.

Grindstone Public House is a welcome addition to Noblesville. We have visited a handful of times and all the food we selected was tasty and at a reasonable price. My 92-year old mother has said “Let’s go to the restaurant on the corner” and “This is my now favorite restaurant.”

I would recommend due to the food was excellent. The service from the time you walked in to leaving was horrible. Hostess wanted us to walk over spilled water and when we refused and waited for them to wipe it up~ she left us to seat yourselves. Took over 20 minutes to get menus and additional twenty to get drinks. Food, we ordered steaks, was great. As we left there were two girls at the door and either one said a word. Would recommend only if not in a hurry. And don’t mind subpar service. We’ll go back butnot for along time.

Went for my Birthday on Saturday night. Table was ready promptly at 7pm with reservation for four. Got fried green tomatoes, everyone really liked them, got the crab dip, had two or three bites and didn't enjoy it. Chips were not that good and salty and something didn't taste great with the dip so informed the waitress we didn't like it and she took it away, but still charged for it. Ceaser salad was good, dressing on side which means it wasn't soggy when it came out. Had the prime rib, cooked to order and mashed potatoes were decent, have had better and worse so no complaints. Service was iffy to start, waited way to long after sitting before waitress came for water/drink order. Felt nobody really checked in during meal. Third time here, nothing to write home about, but expected for downtown noblesville.

Our first visit. A variety of reasonably priced meals. Large portions, good value, Dining room is a bit small, but good seating in bar as well. Very good wait staff. Good beer specials, including crafts. We enjoyed a good celebratory birthday dinner.

This was our first time visiting Grindstone Public House and it was Mother's Day. So that being said, we had a reservation which we were 5 mins late for. We had to wait for 10 mins before being seated eventhough we could see empty tables in the main dining area, upstairs and next to the bar. Of course we were seated at the table right in front of the entrance to the kitchen ... I hate that but evidently there were no other options? Anyway, the service was very slow. The food was ok ... nothing stellar (all four in our party agreed). I think what bothered me the most was that the 'manager' who was at the front when we entered was seated with his family at a booth while we were eating and didn't appear to be concerned about the slow service and didn't check with the patrons to see if everything was going well. I don't think we'll be going back.
