We visited with my daughters family including two children... the waiter was most accommodating even offering a 'reward' if my young granddaughter ate her food and made my daughter the judge. He also waited until we were done with our salads to prepare our entrees...More

Another great Kokomo eatery. Has an extensive menu, and included is my favorite, the classic tenderloin. Servers are friendly and do a great job keeping our drinks full. Grindstone Charlie's is well worth the trip.
