Grindstone Charley's - Rockville Rd Ratings and Reviews

We had a big group of parents and athletes in town for a tournament. We were able to make our reservation throughly open table and the staff was ready for our large group. The food was great and staff was awesome!
Good food, friendly staff, very very slow kitchen.
We were seated behind the bar at the back of the restaurant, although there were plenty of tables available in the much nicer atrium area at the front. It was Mother's Day. A family of 20-24 seemed to have the undivided attention of the kitchen staff, as everyone else in the place seemed to be lacking food. It took 20 minutes for our appetizer to arrive. We had been there an hour by the time our food arrived. The food was very good, but the experience was not.
home town goodness
This restaurant has been around long time and I have frequent Grindstones often; sometimes for carry out too. Outdoor seating, bar, large parties, vintage decor, great menu they have it all. I go back for the great food and friendly staff.
Not What It Used To Be...
Although the onion soup and Thai wings continue to be winners, everything else was average. We sat inside in the bar area and were miserably cold. Wasn't just us, the girl at the next table was wearing a sweatshirt in August. We moved to an outside area where the temperature was perfect, but the view was a gas station and when two other couples came out, they immediately began smoking. Because business wasn't great (Friday night) our server was released and another took her place. All in all, the dining experience was extremely fair.
Not What I Expected
Grindstone Charley is a place I would go to for food that is well prepared and tasty. We had one wait staff attend to our party of 11, and she did a wonderful job getting our orders and serving our food promptly. But what I was looking for when we checked out OpenTable was for a special occasion--to celebrate my daughter's college graduation. We drove 90 minutes from her campus to Indianapolis because it was a central spot for out-of-town friends and family who attended her graduation to dine and travel home from. I had hope for something a little bit more upscale in terms of location, food selection and ambiance. The restaurant we arrived at did not look like what was pictured in OpenTable. It was not in a nice neighborhood--I had hoped we could be in the Downtown area. Next time, I will need to look more closely, instead of letting my husband scout it out alone.
The jack burger was great, but the sirlo ...
The jack burger was great, but the sirloin steak left something to be desired. Our waitress was great, but the hostess was talking with other employees when we walked in and another employee had to get her to seat us. It wasn't the worst experience, but I probably won't return.

I have been eating here for years, and I keep coming back. This place has the best burgers! They also have great salads, tenderloin, catfish, fried fish, and ribs! I also just love the people that work here. Everyone is so cool and down to earth. I have never met a mean rude person here EVER! If you want good food and don't want to spend a lot, then try this place out.

My husband and I love your restaurant! We have dined there several times over the last 25 years and one reason we keep coming back is because it is consistently good!! It has good food, good service, always clean, and friendly staff! We love the "neighborhood" feel of Grindstones--even though we live in Plainfield! We recommend it to all our friends!
I recently joined OpenTable and this is the ONLY place to have a table set up and ready for us as soon as we arrived at our reservation time. Then the food: we had 5 different entrées, and every meal was fresh and delicious. Our waitress was very friendly and fun too. I'm telling friends and going back.
