    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    Food is definitely good, and not too pricey. My fiance and I went there to check out the food for our rehearsal dinner because we had never been there before. We ended up booking the place! The only issue we had is that the bar is quite large, and we went on a Sunday night, and there were a lot of people at the bar drinking and yelling at the football games that were on TV that night! Definitely an "active" bar scene. Good place for 20- and 30-somethings who want to go to a bar.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 11/14/2010
    My first mistake in heading to Cornerstone was that I wanted to have conversation with the people I was with, and I headed there at 6 p.m. on a Sunday when there was a football game. The hostess lead us to the back, because "everywhere else is so noisy." Unfortunately the "quiet" section where we were seated wasn't really much better, so conversation was very minimal, and strained. This is definitely a place to go if you want to grab drinks and watch a football game, but not a place for a nice dinner out. The food was good - nothing special (or anything for serious foodies), but it tasted good. The service was sub par, but it was also a busy night. Go for pub-type food, but definitely don't head there on a first date!

    Dining at the Cornerstone Restaurant and Bar was a delightful experience. Their menu was extensive and varied accompanied by a Daily Specials list that offered new and exciting food combinations. Our waiter was able to answer any questions we had and offered a substitution on a dish that wasn't even mentioned. The ambience is rustic, yet warm and inviting. We were attended to before, during and after, making our evening a memorable one and I'll be sure to recommend this restaurant to others with a glowing report.

    Loved the atmosphere and food. Service was a bite slow and unattended at times. Fireplace and open floor design was fun! Will come back again, for sure!

    Our waitress was exceptional! Good service, friendly and pleasant. Enjoyed our free bottle of champagne which was given for a birthday celebration. Food was hot, portions were big and tasty.

  • The "SuperSkins" weren't so

    Dined on 7/24/2010
    The "SuperSkins" weren't so super just ordinary... I had a burger and it was great, but I ordered sweet potato fries and got regualar fries my wife had the Shrimp Papparedella and said it was excellent. The shrimp dish cried for a nice crusty Italian bread... but none came. We dined early on a Saturday night (6:00pm) and the restaurant was kind of quiet... I image that it jumps later at night. The waitress and table service was absolutely great. Will definately return

    I went with a group of friends for a night out, appetizers and drinks. We got four appetizers and they were all awesome. There was a nice large cocktail menu, so there was something for all of us. A few of us tried different things that we've never had before, and really liked them. Our server was helpful and really friendly. It was a Saturday night, and the dinner crowd changed to a late night crowd. The place had a lot of energy!
