    I had been hoping to check this place out for a while- I assumed it would be a little less sophisticated as it is right next to Stevenson University and it might cater more to the college aged group - but I found the food lovely and upscale. The wine was a little pricey by the glass, but the martinis were delicious and different. Overall very very good, great place to meet friends. I will return!

    Before going to the KitBar, I read some reviews, most were indicating a good experience but the one that stuck was a person who had to wait for poor service, bad drink and an in general a bad experience. When my wife and I arrived we were unsure of what to expect because of the unusual format but, the evening turned into a real treat. We were promptly seated, we were well attended to, the drink was good, even for rail goods. The food was a pleasant surprise. Not gourmet but very appealing in presentation and taste. The staff was as friendly as I care to have them, not over the top but very good. Even the other patrons were helpful to us in their reviews and all who had been there before loved it as did we.

    I dine here frequently, so have sampled many of their menu items. Haven't found a loser in the bunch. This visit's new try was the buffalo chicken flatbread which will definitely become part of the re-order rotation. The three in my party all absolutely loved it. As others have mentioned, the fish tacos alone are worth the visit. I order mine in lettuce instead of tortillas - REALLY brings out the flavor.

    The food we had was all delicious. The meatloaf cupcakes, shrimp creole on johnny cakes, the mackinac flatbread, the cuban sandwich and strawberry goat cheese salad were very good and the service was fast. It was way too much food for two people but we ate it anyway!

    I have been to Stone's Cove with a group, with a colleague, and with my husband. I have never been disappointed. The fish tacos are so good I tell everybody about them! Prices are good, service is attentive, and the food is excellent. Plenty of non-fried options, which is refreshing for a bar. Stone's Cove is a nice find.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/19/2014
    We were a group of 4; reservations were made online on their website (very cool) for 7pm & were quickly seated--orders were placed at 07:15pm. By 08:23pm, 2 in our party had concluded eating (they did not order off the Baltimore County Restaurant week menu) and the other 2 had yet to receive their entree. We requested to speak with the Manager twice--he came to speak with us at 08:40pm, stating they got behind in their service & couldn't seem to catch up. After a protracted conversation he paid for our dinner & we paid for our drinks (much more than expected); he also gave 3 cards for free meals. The food was quite good, interesting & tasty--we'd go back to see if the service improves....maybe they really did have an off night?

    The food was good but my only complaint is the portion sizes are too small. This was my second time there and I was hoping the portion size wouldn't be an issue again but it was. For the amount of food you get, I think their menu is a little pricey.

    My wife and I are regulars at the kitbar for dinner but this was our first visit for brunch. Brunch currently runs S&S 11-4. We found that the Breakfast Flatbread was delicious and filling, the Banana French Toast was creamy and tasty, and the Eggs Benedict (w/ Ham) was perfectly cooked with quite a kick from the sausage. Cocktails are always delicious at Kitbar, and I expect nothing less from their breakfast selections. Service was fast and friendly with many chef-tenders checking-in on their way by. The KitBar runs cooking classes once a month, and having attended, I can tell you it is worth the $49. Plenty of food to try, lots of drinks to wet your whistle, and enough fun to keep your smiling and laughing. The classes make great gifts!

    I went to dinner with my girlfriend here. I was very impressed with the ambiance and the service, most of all! What a great concept, the staff doesn't have a choice but to be attentive and customer service is what it is all about now a day, as far as I am concerned. The portions were ok but for my husband he would have to order one of the bigger portions. The only complaint I have was it was a little pricey but since it is a "special" type of place I wouldn't frequent to often due to the fact I have a 5 year old. It is fine not to have children though! BTW the white sangrias are totally awesome!

    Stone's Cove has been a great new place for us to go. The food is a bit more ambitious than what you might normally find in Baltimore County without being pretentious. The menu changes seasonally and the seasonal specials usually are interesting and flavorful. Most are tappas style and great for sharing. Don't let the kitchen/bar concept scare you. Most of the time you'll get fellow foodies next or near to you and pleasant banter. Try the lobster cones as a unique treat!

    Stone cove is a great place for good food and drinks, and great ambiance. My friend and I went for a quick bite to eat after a long day. We arrived around 830pm. The service was quick at first. We ordered the lobster cones, shrimp and grits, and crab cake sandwich. Everything came out fast and tasted amazing. After that things took a turn as the servers began preparing for closing at 9pm (the restaurant closes at 10). We waited for about 15 min after we finished eating before we were acknowledge again by staff who were engrossed in polishing silverware. Finally ordered strawberry shortcake dessert. After finishing that, had to flag down someone to get check. Recommend this place only if it's well before closing!!

    This was my third visit to Stone's Cove. The Pear flower Martini continues to be the most amazing drink. We shared upside down meatloaf cupcakes, tuna sashimi, Greek salad and Cuban Sandwich. It was more than enough for two. Everything was delicious. The tomato "ketchup" on the meatloaf was fabulous. Did not expect to find red bell peppers in the meatloaf, but was able to pick them out. The tuna melted in your mouth. Both the Greek salad and the Cuban were big hits as well. The service was friendly even though it was extremely busy for a week night. Once we got our first dish, the rest came out fairly quickly. Sharing dishes is highly recommended and makes for a fun evening.

    Lunch can be a real downer. Brown bag it or be disappointed in fast food joints. Not so! Right down the hill from me is the very creative and fun Stone's Cove KitBar. Servers are friendly and funny and the food is pretty and tasty. I had the mini-meatloaves and ahi tuna. I over ordered! No problem, those mini-meatloaves nestled in a mini-mountain of horseradish mashed potatoes travel well and are delicious reheated. Get in there! Have fun! Enjoy lunch again!

    I ordered the fish tacos and they were excellent as usual. Hubby had the flat iron steak and he thought it was cooked and seasoned nicely. It is only served with veggies, though, so not very filling. If you have a big appetite, you will want to order something with it. My friend had the quiche special and loved it. The service was much better this time than it was during our last visit.

    Very different set up where you sit "up" around a kitchen- atmosphere was very lively. Menu set up as to encourage sharing- lobster cones and flatbreads were delicious. Very limited desserts- try the strawberry sliders...yummy. Not a place for little kids as the seating is at pub level, but suitable for my 13 year old. We will definitely come back.

    My friend and I ate here early Friday evening. We enjoyed the food, drinks, and the ability to catch-up with each other at our own table in privacy. However, towards the end of the meal, I guess since there was only two of us, they sat another couple at our table. Neither groups were pleased and the couple asked to move to their own table but decided to stay since we decided to leave. Puts you in a very umcomfortable situation if you don't want to mingle with strangers or have them overhear private coversations!

    I never did find the lobster in the lobster bisque and I did not want or need other "enhancements" for that dish. The food here is not simple. Everything has a "twist". If you like tasty but not twisted, this is not your spot. If you like a bit different, they've got it.
