A friend and I were celebrating our birthdays.
Service was excellent and the restaurant is attractive. My food was very good, but could have been hotter. Lukewarm.

Grindstone Public House is one of most favorite restaurants in town. Too many good options on the menu. Cant wait to try the street tacos on our next visit. Service is exceptional.

Steaks are always undercooked for me. The booths on the left hand side of dining are have a constant stream of moldy smelly air that comes from basement I assume. Service is either fantastic or nonexistent.

Our server, Madison, was knowledgeable about the menu, offered great suggestions (those brussel sprouts !!!) and our steaks were cooked to absolute perfection. This will continue to be our date-night spot!

I was told the wings were not breaded, but I believe they were. Ranch dressing was bland and gritty. Loved the look and feel of the place and hope they thrive, but we won’t be going back.

The wait staff were excellent, everyone there wanted to make sure you had everything you needed. The food was excellent, we had the crab bites for an appetizer, they're like mini crab cakes, but fried, then served with the remoulade. For entrees we had Prime Rib, Glazed Salmon and BBQ Ribs. Everything was delicious, we all cleaned our plates. One side dish that stood out were the Brussels Sprouts, if you like them you'll love how they make them here.

We visit this the Grindstone Public House at least 6 times a month.
We enjoy the food, the drinks and the staff.
For Brunch, the Eggs Benedict are great and large portions.
Bloody Mary's and Mimosas are our drinks of choice for brunch and very good.
The staff is friendly and responsive from entry until departure.
We always look forward to the soup of the day. Always full of flavor and inventive.
Also, the Ribs are excellent!

Great food, great service and a wonderful atmosphere! Love going here for both dinner and brunch. The breakfast poutine is out of this world! Typically it’s just the two of us so it’s very hard to eat even half of the poutine. The chef was very nice and made a half order for us. He even brought it out to us, now that’s great customer service! The bartender (wish I could remember his name) is always wonderful! Makes a great Bloody Mary and mimosa! Highly recommended this place!!

We were seated in an upstairs area; but our server still provided excellent service (she probably climbed those stairs a dozen times during our time there) we ordered the salmon and crab cake entrees which appeared timely and well prepared. There is an extensive wine list to choose from. Desert exceeded our expectations. The noise from the bar area below us proved to be challenging. We will ask for a booth on the main level next time.
