Grillstone has become our favorite place to go! Food is very well prepared. We have had turkey burgers, salmon, salads, shrimp and flatbreads. Staff is always receptive. We have gone since their opening- almost two years ago, and never had service that was anything but great. Appetizers are very interesting! Some healthy and others indulgent. In addition they have freshly prepared sushi. Wide variety of Happy Hour drinks that are very reasonable. Bartenders work hard, and treat their customers really well. There is indoor and outdoor seating, booths as well as tables and even some high tops. You can sit quietly in or out- or near the bar where it is lively. You should try Grillstone! Forgot to mention- they have really great music some nights! More

The only think I was not on board with was the restaurant added a 20% gratuity. For a buffet, I don’t feel that was right. More

Indian | Freehold, New Jersey - Central

We have been here several times since our first visit less than a year ago- and we can’t say enough about this amazing restaurant! The decor and service are fantastic- but the food is unbelievable! It is so visually appealing and incredibly delicious. The combos of ingredients in this Indian Fushion cuisine is so worth it. The food looks fresh, artfully plated and colorful, and above all, tastes amazing. You will be returning again and again, as we do! Our favs : beetroot tiki and eggplant chat for starters, the Zufrani and everything Tandoori. We will eventually taste everything:) More
