    Everyone enjoyed their food. You might consider a thinner chip for the side that came with the Steak Tacos. Sweet potato fries were a hit.

    Our service was wonderful, the food was just ok. Our appetizer was cold which was expected as it came out 2 minutes after we orders... and we thought that was a bid odd. I had the pickle brine sandwich and didn't love it but I appreciate the concept! Honestly our server is the only reason we'd be back she was nice, polite and catered to us very nicely.

    Food was tasty. The Seafood Linguine and fish and chips were very good and not overly priced. Server was good and the only hiccup was she wasn't made aware of the seating order and a neighboring table seated after us had their order, drinks, and salad before stopping at our table.

    I ordered prime rib but received a burnt rib eye instead. The waitress said they were out of prime rib and substituted a rib eye without even informing me. They offered to replace the meal with something of my choice, however the replacement meal didn't arrive until the rest of our table had finished. No offer to comp the meal until I talked to the manager. Noise level was so loud you could hardly hear from our friends across the table. I cannot recommend this restaurant.

    The wine was pricey at$14/glass. No beverage menu to select from. The salmon filet was about a 1/2 portion & I got 3 pieces of asparagus, but plenty of mashed potatoes - my friend got the salmon salad & got much more salmon. With tip it was $50 & our server was just average. I rave about your place - guess I’ll stick with lunches there however you nixed them tenderloin sliders. The food was good even if dinky.

    The patty melt I ordered was not hamburger patty, instead it was a pile of meat. The menu said patty so I expected a hamburger patty, not a chopped up pile.

    We had a large group so I assume the slow service was due to that but a few things, I believe, could have been better. We ordered a bottle of white wine for the table and it was warm. I understand that it may be difficult to serve a bottle cold but it would have been nice if they told us that before they opened and poured it for us, we would have let it sit in the bucket if ice for a bit to chill it. 2 of the 8 in our party had ordered nachos for dinner and I assume since it was considered an appetizer it came out first but our waiter never gave us the option to hold them until every one else’s food came out plus they were finished with their food before our dinners even came out. We have gone to Grindstone many times for group dinners and had better experiences so we will probably try again another time; hopefully it was just a one time issue and we will have a better experience if our group decides to return.
