  • "First thing on the menu. You will not be disappointed. The chicken kebabs were great as well, especially with the pina colada sauce!"

  • "Good all American food. Nicely redone. Service was quite good. Interesting concept around bar but loud for conversation."

  • "We dined here for a Restaurant Week dinner. No one was leaving the table hungry as Stone's Cove had a four-course meal for the dinner option. The biggest hit at the table seemed to be the shrimp and grits, although my burger was also excellent (served with potato chips). The crab cake was ok, but nothing out of the ordinary. The two desserts, the s'mores flatbread and the luv cones, were quite good, but had a slightly manufactured flavor to them. Also, they have a very limited selection of beers on tap, but their offerings were good. The service was slow due to the number of people. But, it was distracting to watch the action behind the bar. Overall, a very good experience."

  • "Very good food in a very loud restaurant with extremely poor service. Took 45 minutes to receive 1st course salad. Never had water refilled without my flagging someone down. Waiter suggested we share dessert even though we were there for fixed price lunch menu. We had to tell him it came with our restaurant week choice. A better waiter would have improved the experience."

  • "Highly recommended by my sister, took a couple of my friends for a going away lunch, good ambiance & service was great, waiter recommended tapa style for everyone to share, mango mojito just hit the spot, the portabello flat bread, lobster popsicle,cobb salad was excellent, we ordered more. We will definitely be back !!"

  • "We sat at a table near the kitchen/bar where. Could watch them grill the fish/burgers & also by the brick oven. We had several different waiters check in with us thru the dinner - very social environment"

  • "While we usually enjoy Stone's Cove, we suspect that they were a bit understaffed on this visit. Service was very slow and even keeping our glasses filled was a challenge. I hope it was an anomally because we usually enjoy our time there..."

  • "food was good service terrible party of 4 only one person got entree we were then given our bill without the other 3 entrees being served told waiter and finally got our food"

  • "Next time I make a reservation for two for a business lunch I will request a table. It was way too loud at the bar to have a productive business discussion. Also, my client was on a tight schedule and it took a LONG time for our food to arrive. The food was FANTASTIC. I have been here for dinner and it's great, but I'm unsure about business lunch meetings going forward."

  • "Good local restaurant. A little pricey, but overall a good place to eat."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "I would never eat here again. The food is mediocre at best. The service is the worst I think I've ever experienced. It took us over an hour to get our food; which, took less than 5 minutes to prepare. The ambiance is horrible. It's like your eating at a bar. The food is cooked & prepared in the middle of the bar. We ordered our food shortly after arriving. We ordered a tomato and mozzarella salad. We watched one guy making a salad just like ours, but it ended up being for another table. Ten minutes later our identical salad finally arrived. Why the same guy couldn't have prepared both salads at the same time given the fact they were the same I don't know. You're not assigned one server, you have anyone you can."

  • "I made a reservation a few days before my group lunch vas changed it a few hours before lunch. They had a table waiting for us. The service was excellent, the food was excellent, and everyone in my party was happy. The only comment is the noise and music were a little loud for conversations."

  • "Another fun night. Unique place... friendly, relaxing, good small plates and drinks. Becoming addicted to the Blueberry Bourbon Sour!"

  • "One of our favorite places. The food is always very good. Service can be a bit slow, but the servers are friendly and overall it's a great experience. On this visit we had a very minor suggestion (not even a complaint), but the manager came over, took the time to listen and thank us, and bought us a dessert; it was totally unnecessary for her to do that, but a great customer service response."

  • "First time at this restaurant. Staff was nice and very attentive. The three of us had their famous shrimp and grits and LOVED it!!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The steak I ordered was delicious and came out at a perfect temp. The concept is different and it seems to inflate the prices. Since all servers are also bar tenders and cooks and they don't seem to have designated "tables" we waited awhile to have our order taken. It seemed sharing the tables part of the communication wasn't all there. Over all, I wasn't impressed with the menu. I would eat there again if a member of my group wanted to, but it wouldn't be my first choice or on my suggestion list."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "The deco is eclectic. The cooking is done in the middle with a large bar surrounding the kitchen so people can watch. The service was quick without constantly interrupting. The menu had some unique items. We had the portobello flat bread, which had balanced flavors. The catch of the day was red snapper which was well cooked. The asparagus served with it were firm but tender."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Food was good. Shrimp and grits was tasty, as was the tuna appetizer. Service was prompt and friendly. Only comment is that there few standalone tables - most seating is around (expanded) bar type counters. That is OK for one or two people, especially at lunch. But, it does not permit a more "private" setting if people want to talk privately."

  • "It was a very enjoyable experience. We were greeted warmly, the staff was friendly and efficient throughout, the food was outstanding, and the price was more than acceptable. They went out of their way to make my wife's Birthday memorable. I highly recommend the Herndon Stone's Cove KitBar Restaurant."

  • "Stone's Cove KitBar is a great place to get some really good food. The grits are the best I have ever had and I'm from the south so that is saying a lot! Watching them prepare food is a really great concept. Thanks for another great meal and a wonderful time!"

  • "Delicious, fresh, and inventive. Loved the small plates and the crab cakes were amazing."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "Stone's Cove provides top-notch service. All servers are there to assist you, as opposed to the traditional restaurant where you are assigned a single server. The food menu is relatively small, but I imagine most will find something that suits them. The quality of the food is excellent. I have tried roughly half the entrées and have yet to be disappointed. The kitbar is a must visit if you are in the neighborhood."

  • "My wife and I have been going here regularly since they first opened and it gets better every time. Many restaurants get comfortable in their ways but the crew at Stone's Cove keep introducing new menu items, new events and new ways to make customers happy. i can't say enough good things about the food and the staff. Keep up the great work and we'll keep spending our money with you!"

  • "We took visiting grandparents there -- we had a great time ordering lots of different things. The food was excellent and there was a fun cocktail menu. The service is great and diners can watch the servers prepare the food. The place is a little noisy; otherwise great. "

  • "Great restaurant for a low key night. Your table is literally around the bar and you get to watch all your food being prepped and made. The food is outstanding. I have been 5 times and never had anything I didn't like. The drinks and food are hand crafted. I love it!"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Really nice menu to select from. I'd consider it Modern American food, which borrows from everything that is trendy right now (flat breads, sashimi, etc). "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Food was great, but service could have been better. I don't know if it was because they were more crowded than usual on a Thursday night, but we really weren't "feeling the love" on this visit. We had to flag down servers for empty glasses and to place orders. Only once did someone come by and ask us how we were doing; all other interactions were when we flagged someone or someone came to deliver us food or beverage. Food was good. Hamburger sliders were amazing. Always a fan of the Macinac flatbread, which didn't fail to please. And so glad they will still serve the edibations - they aren't on the menu anymore, but they still do them and they are the best!"
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "Stones Cove had a really unique concept. The kitbar, with the chef-tender who took your drink and food order and cooked food as well as poured for you...and food prepared as you watch. Unfortunately new upper management with eyes on btm line pushing for faster table turnover are not watching training. New hires are not tending their guests well and just the opposite is happening. Drinks not refilled, orders not taken. Food is still good, but the old comradarie with the chef-tenders is gone. Don't know the names any more. Neighborhood joint feel is gone."

  • "I understand this place has been here for a while, but tucked back behind a Red Hot and Blue so I never saw it. Concept has your bar server also serving as your chef. At lunch the service was great and food was very tasty. We tried the upside down meatloaf cupcakes and got 3 small (but filling) cakes on top of mashed potatoes. Plenty for lunch. We also tried the crab lettuce wraps and were again pleasantly surprised by the quality of crab - no filler - mixed with scallions, tomatoes and other flavors. Again lots of food. Not sure about the lime sugar as an added flavor provided, but some may like it. I will definitely be back. "
