4th time in a month. Good food. Good variety. Large Saturday night crowd, so very noisy. Acoustics could be better. Service a little slow, but everybody need more staff. Worth waiting for. Prices reasonable for quality and portion sizes. Didn’t drink, but alcohol options are excellent.
They sat us right at our reservation time. Waited 25 minutes…didn’t even get a server, not even a glass of water. We did at the 23 minute mark get someone to acknowledge we were sitting in our booth. We left without a single conversation and without a birthday dinner for my wife.
Server was very good, but took too long to get our meal. Maybe a kitchen issue.

Hi, Anniel. Thank you for taking the time to rate us! We are glad we could leave a positive impact and made it a good experience for you. We are glad you can join us for Brunch!
Food was good with a nice variety of options to suit varying tastes. My husband and I had the mahi Mahi which was delicious. Service was very good. We like this place and will be going back.
Thank you, Julie, for your kind words about our food and our service staff. We are so happy that you had a good experience. I appreciate you taking the time to review our store, and hope you have a great day!
Great service and great food!
Thank you for the 5 star rating, Becky! We are so happy you think highly of our food and service!
Great food and service as always. We eat here frequently and never disappointed! Only thing, our table wasn’t reserved. We walked in and the tables were in use. Hostess shrugged her shoulders and said “I don’t know what happened”.
Anyway someone vacated pretty quickly so it was fine, and mistakes happen. Will continue to patronize every week.
Sorry about the small issue! We appreciate the understanding and will work on that with our host team, we will see you again soon! Thanks
Good food. Drinks were either watered down or just right, but small. Even with a ice sphere, my old fashioned was half the glass. Very disappointed.
Thank you for providing your feedback and letting us know about this issue, Opentable. We set a high standard for ourselves and are truly sorry to hear that standard was not met in your interaction with us. Please get in touch with us at email@example.com om - Would be happy to buy you a round next time your in! Cheers, Grindstone Public House
Scheduled a lunch meeting here and sat a round table which was great, however it was by the hostess stand and there was a lot of activity and noise. Will definitely be back but request something in another area. Food was amazing!

Hi, Krisc. Thank you for taking the time to rate us! We are glad we could leave a positive impact and made it a good experience for you
We had a party of 8 adults and reservations at 7pm on a Saturday night. We arrived on time. Drink orders were taken but took quite some time for them to come. By 745 we were enjoying our company but still had not ordered dinner. After finally ordering we did get everything as ordered and it was very good. Wait staff seemed to be good but appeared to have several tables. He wasn’t personable but wasn’t rude either, was doing his job but nothing outstanding. We all sat for quite some time with empty drink glasses. Everyone was ordering cocktails and this really was missed opportunities for the restaurant and for the waiter a chance to make a bigger tip on a larger bill. Overall it was good, we would go there again, but it could have been better. Food was great, everything as ordered, drinks were good just things moved a little slow. There was one lady who brought food from the kitchen so with a party of 8 we waited for her to make several trips back and forth until everyone had their meal. We didn’t finish dinner until 9pm.
Thank you for sending such an in depth review of your experience at GPH. We will continue working with out staff to improve our guests time with us. We look forward to providing you and your friends and family a much more timely experience the next time you choose to dine with us!
Excellent food. Friendly waiter. Seated in the bar which was not ideal for a reservation. Wait for order placement a little longer than usual.
Hi, Stanleye. These words go a long way, it motivates us to work even harder, thank you for the review!

Always a great place. Will be back.
Hi, Bnbookgirl. We are delighted that you had a great experience with us. Thank you for taking the time to rate us!
Great evening table of 6, some in group first time visit. Only negative is we were sat next to stage/live music. Had no idea you had live music on weekends. Would prefer to not sit right on top of music, for better conversation, etc. with group. Next time, will know to request to not be seated right by state/music. Food and service were very good.
Hi, Catgirl. These words go a long way, it motivates us to work even harder, thank you for the review!
Grindstone Public House is on our regular rotation of weekend dinners. As normal the service and food were fantastic. We love to sit in the bar area at one of the high tops. The bartenders did a a great job as usual.
Thank you for your review, Winston! We appreciate that you took the time to share your experiences with us, and we look forward to serving you again, soon.
Contemporarily decorated space, comfortable ambience, attentive and friendly service, food with flavor and presentation. Thank you!
Hi, Opentable. Thank you for taking the time to submit a review, we really appreciate it!
Our food was excellent as always. I've never found a bison burger I liked more than at Grindstone's. The wait staff was excellent, as well. The ice teas at the table were always filled. The various waiters assisted each other, as the place was fairly crowded. Like other places, I imagine the staff is short-handed, but you'd not know it when dining here. We were asked many times if we needed anything, which we usually didn't; but everyone kept checking on us. We (table of 4) had a great experience. In addition, I had requested a booth, and we were given one. It's quite loud/energetic due to the ceilings; however, they have turned down the very loud and annoying music that played at our last visit, which allows for a better conversation.
Hi, Travels4food. Thank you for taking the time to submit a review, we really appreciate it!
Always a fantastic experience at Grindstone Public House!!
Hi, Kssm. Thank you very much for your rating! We are glad you had a pleasant experience. See you again soon!
Have eaten here several times. We enjoy the food and atmosphere.
Hi, Tracyl. Thank you so much for rating your experience with us so highly!
We came with friends who had never been. One of them had Mahi Mahi and it came out dry and cold, the other ordered a filet but appeared to be a sirloin. We didn’t complain. Our server was busy, they seemed short staffed, like any other places right now.
We will be back. We love the place but this last time did not meet our usual expectations.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Opentable. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. We will pass on the issues on your visit to our management team and look to improve on your next visit. Cheers, Grindstone Public House
Loved the live music and the food was excellent
Hi, Ftwayfoodie. Your feedback is highly appreciated. Thank you so much for the review!
Very accommodating staff. Service was excellent and the food portions exceeded our expectations.
Hi, Opentable. Thank you so much for rating your experience with us so highly!
Great food. Our waitress seemed disinterested and probably should seek employment outside of the hospitality industry.
Hello, Brett. Thank you so much for letting us know about your experience, as a guest. We apologize on behalf of your server. I am very happy the food was great. We will keep working with our service staff to ensure that the next time you join us we can exceed your expectations.
Great service, good food and reasonable prices. We will be back!
The filet mignon is definitely not a filet mignon , more like a cheap cut of sirloin, only about 1/3 inch thick . None of the food was hot, only luke warm. Subpar at best. Very disappointing as we chose this place on a whim for our anniversary dinner and drove an hour to try it. The server was the most unknowledgeable server I’ve ever encountered . We would never return .
Thank you for providing your feedback and letting us know about this issue, Jinnyb. We set a high standard for ourselves and are truly sorry to hear that standard was not met in your interaction with us. Please get in touch with us on (317) 774-5740 and we'd be happy to help you out. Cheers, Grindstone Public House
It was just very cold at our table. The vent on the floor was under our table blowing ice cold air.
I am sorry to hear the the AC was blowing directly under your table. We try to regulate the temperature to ensure that our guests are comfortable. We will continue to work on it!
Great food and great service.
Thank you, Becky. We really appreciate your generous review, and we look forward to your next visit!
We went to GPH to try their Devour menu. We had the nachos for our app. They had all sorts of goodies, including pulled pork. The chips were the really light and crispy kind. So good! My husband had the tenderloin that was served on the plate with peppercorn gravy instead of a bun. Delish! I had the ribs which literally fell off the bone. Our sides of mashed potatoes, mac n cheese, sweet potato fries and green beans were all tasty, too. The bread pudding put us over the edge. It was good, but I like my recipe better. It was kind of dense. Overall, it was a great experience and we would definitely go back again. :)
Wow! Thank you so much Ronda! We are delighted that everything was great.
We had Brunch, it was awesome. It was extremely flavorful. Very cool building. Highly recommend this place!
Hi, Heather. Thank you for your review. We look forward to serving you in the future!
this place is a gem in downtown. It feels like it could easily be in a larger city. Food is decent - plenty good enough to make me want to come. Drink selection and bar are great.
Thanks Indygreg! We are all very proud of our bar and our amazing bartenders. I appreciate you taking the time to give us a review.
I had a great experience here. It was dinner for 4 adults on a Friday night. The service was good. My tenderloin was great, but I asked for the gravy on the side, and it came out with gravy on the tenderloin. I ate it anyway, but I would have preferred it on the side. My husband enjoyed his meatloaf. I did think my cocktail was overpriced for the amount that I was served. Overall, we were all pleased. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Hello Amy. I am glad you were pleased with your visit, and I apologize that we dropped the ball on getting your hot plate out with the gravy on the side. I'm glad it didn't ruin your visit, though! Thank you for your detailed review.
Loved the vibe, great service, and even better food. The Nashville hot chicken sandwich is so good. The bartenders were so friendly and very knowledgeable on the drinks they were serving! The martini they offered as a special was so good. Will definitely make the 2 hour drive to come back here!
Hi, Jordync. Thank you so much for rating your experience with us so highly! We appreciate you taking the time to drive all the way to GPH! We hope to see you again soon!
We. Chose to eat outside. Nobody else was out there and they forgot about us. We waited ten minutes and then went inside to remind them. The manager ended up serving us. He made up for the problem by being very attentive and friendly. He gave us a free dessert also. Food was delicious. We'll be back.
Thank you so much for your kind words, Trician. We really appreciate you taking the time out to share your experience with us. Sorry about the patio issue! Glad we were able to take care of you and we hope to see you again soon! Cheers, Grindstone Public House
