Dinner with my husband. Saturday night and no wait! I had the shrimp & lobster risotto. My hubby had the short rib penne. Both dishes were delicious! We each took half home to enjoy another night. I also had their chocolate martini & had to stop myself from ordering a second. Yum! We didn't get an appetizer because we knew... More

I went to Grillstone on a Wednesday night, great crowd not to busy. The food was great and seasoned just right. However the drinks were watered down, I had the peach iced tea fish bowl drink for $14 and it taste like peach iced tea without the liquor, my boyfriend had a patron margarita and his drink was watered down...

We wanted to check out Grillstone after being highly recommended. We went pre-valentine weekend (not realizing) and was greeted and asked if we had reservations. Since we did not we dined at the high top tables near the bar. The ambiance for the dinning area was warm and cozy. Hopefully, next time I will get a chance to sit in... More

We went for a birthday on a Saturday night. Place was packed with live music. Waiter was great, food was good not great, but fine for the occasion. Nachos, burgers, pizza, salads, etc.

Went to a business lunch in January 2017. Had salmon (picture) and an ample-sized meatloaf. The vegetables which accompanied them (broccolini for salmon; green beans for meatload) were tough and not appealing. The dessert was well presented (picture).

This place is great! They have something special every night of the week. We tried their sushi special (Monday all you can eat). Fish is fresh and rolls were delicious. The rolls are not any smaller than non all you can eat sushi (sometimes at other places the all you can eat sushi is made in much smaller portions). However,... More

I went to the Grillstone for lunch taking my best friend for her birthday and I was surprised at the recent reviews because I had a wonderful experience and delicious meal at the restaurant. First, on a quiet Monday, they were not that busy so the waitstaff was more than attentive. We were seated by one of the owners and... More

APPEARS TO BE POORLY MANAGED. Ate at bar. Bar not clean. Had substandard sushi. Bottle of soy sauce disgustingly dirty. Utensils did not seem clean. Absolutely will not return or recommend.

My friend and I went back here against our better judgement. We had been disappointed 2 times before, and when our drinks were served with lipstick already on the glasses, we should have got up and left. The waiter was very personable and apologetic, but proceeded to bring us 6 more wine glasses with pink prints! His excuse was that... More
