My husband and I both had the smothered sirloin with twice baked potato. They were both great. That was the best twice baked potato I ever had. The fried green tomatoes were excellent too. My sin had the chinichanga bambu . He said it was very good too.. My daughter-in-law had off of the gluten free menu and she said it was better than Outback's. It was the best food we have ever had at Grindstone Charley/s. Make sure you keep the cook or cooks and pay them well. The service was great too.

Four of us went to this restaurant for a late night snack and we ended up ordering meals since they sounded so good. Burger with bourbon sauce was great! Nice dessert choices as well.

We eat here regularly. The ribs are some of the best in town. The prime rib is awesome. The jacks kicking burger is my husband's favorite. We love the bone in wings for appetizers. The grilled asparagus is a real treat!

Went to Grindstone Charley's tonight with the wife. Our server, Damon was awesome, very knowledgeable on the menu, and made suggestions. We went with his suggestion on the Tenderloins. They were amazing! He was joking with us and made us laugh everytime he was at out table. Our drinks never went half empty and he was there to top them off. We will be back and will be asking for his section! Thanks Grindstone Charley's, and Thank you Damon!
