“The Groovy Grind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2014

Had a friends surprise birthday party at the Grind, and everything was just perfect. There was about 75 people and the service and food came out just perfect. Cheers to Kevin and his staff. I love the outside Tiki bar and the wonderful live music tooooo.

“The Best Burgers EVER! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant decor is very creative and just beautiful.

Service was good.

The burgers were to die for!!

If I lived in Ormond Beach or anywhere near it, I would never eat out anywhere else.

If you've never been, you must go immediately, because you are missing out!

Excellent!!

“Beautiful tiki bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch in the outdoor tiki bar. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable, going above-and-beyond to make a pizza to order for a child with food allergies. I sampled margaritas in a few spots over the course of a week, and the Grind margarita was the best of all.

“Yummy food. Disappointing service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

Food was very good. The menu is quite creative. It is fun to read. However, do not go with a group. Staff was not properly supervised. Kitchen and front of house was not coordinated. Waiting 25 minutes to order is too long. Would have been longer had I not flagged down the server - twice. Waiting another 55 minutes for a sandwich is too long. Then waiting 20 minutes for a check after you track down the server to ask to pay is too long. Having the manager come to you after the 20 minute wait and you explaining that you need to leave NOW and him asking the server who said she was working on it (still) and then telling me he solved my problem and walking away is laughable. Never getting your soda refilled in a 1 hour and 45 minute visit is not cool. The food was very good and the outdoor area looked like a good place to enjoy an evening so I may return but....

Wow! I am so sorry I didn't see/respond to this feedback earlier. I 100% agree with you...all of that is way too long and frankly, unacceptable. Not sure if you've been back since but I sure hope so and that your visit was not like the first. Our customer service importance is right there with the quality of our food. Time is valuable and experience is everything. I hope you will give us another chance and thank you very much for the feedback!
