A word from Stone's Public House
Stone's Public House, in the time-honored tradition of New England and the old country of Ireland, invites you in for a pint, a conversation and, of course, some of the finest cuisine Metrowest has to offer. Our Public House prides itself on a rich history of fine food and drink, friendly service, camaraderie and, perhaps, a whisper of spirits not to be found anywhere else!Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We love going to Stones whether it be for drinks and appetizers, brunch on the weekends, date night, or even dinner with the family. They really cater to everyone and it is always enjoyable. The food is always great. You can't go wrong!"

  • "Food was great - seared tuna salad to shepard's pie to fish dishes! Not a huge menu but very diverse. Beer offerings were great. Service was really good. The rueben appetizers were super delicious!"

  • "We had a excellent meal at Stone's. I would heartily recommend a reservation. It is a very popular place especially on the weekends. Very happy we made the trip."

  • "This is a great spot for lunch or dinner. Casual and thoughtfully created food that is delicious. I had the Asian Pear salad that was perfect and my dining mate had the salmon BLT which she loved. Have been to Stone's many times and have always been satisfied."

  • "Just loved this place. Miss the 'oldy worldy' pubs at home (UK) so this was a fabulous find. Will come back again very soon. Food was great too!"

  • "We sat on the bar side, which is lively/noisy. We were able to converse, but we were always aware of the din around us. The meals were quite good. I had the sea bass, which was amazing. Two of us had dishes that were a la carte, so we also ordered side dishes of rice and ratatouille which were delicious. The only disappointment was the salads, which seemed to be drowning in oil with no real flavor. The rest of the meal made up for it, though."

  • "I found this place on Yelp while on a business trip to Framingham. I liked the historical significance, the overall reviews were good, and it was close. We went on a Tuesday night, and I ordered the seafood stew, which was delicious, followed by the cheesecake, which was also good. The ambiance was quaint, I liked the wood floors and fireplace, and I watched multiple trains pass as the place is next to tracks. Even with its proximity to the railroad, the place is well insulated enough that you can't hear or feel the trains as they quickly speed through town. My only complaint is the annoying trivia game played in the bar. The announcer's voice was loud enough to be a distraction and significantly detracted from the pleasant atmosphere."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "An amazing combination of a vibrant pub atmosphere and gourmet quality food. A great variety of small plates, entreees and sandwiches. We had the cheese plate followed by small plates of scallops with melon, corned beef and cabbage egg rolls and poutine (my first time and won't be my last)! All were delicious. Can't wait to go back."

  • "We have been going to Stones for a while now and really enjoy it. The food is very good, good size portions and a wide variety to choose from, Irish standards to regular Americana. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They carry a good selection of wine & beer and their bartenders are top notch. It can get a bit loud in the later hours, but not overwhelming. If you haven't been try it, you will enjoy it!"

  • "Very disappointed in our recent visit. Our main course (irish breakfast) was brought out before appetizer. We then waited an additional 15 minutes for app. My breakfast had a tiny amount of white and black puddings - a small sliver of each, while my husband had a decent amount. Eggs were overcooked, probably from sitting under heat lamps while our app was being cooked. Waitress was friendly, but we waited 20 minutes for check. Every time we go to the restaurant in the past year, service is slow and disorganized. Very disappointed."

  • "If you like those little out of the way places in small towns with historic ambiance then I would recommend Stone's Public House. Had great food items that you would not find elsewhere. We had the Irish sausage and the Poutine. Both were superb."

  • "This was our second time to Stone's and will not be our last. Great pub atmosphere, upscale pub food, and service that was attentive and allowed us to enjoy a leisurely meal."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We went on a Sunday evening at about 6:30. Liked the menu, service was good as was the food (although bread was rather stale) but what we did not expect was at atmosphere more akin to Chucky Cheese than a place for "a pint, a conversation and, of course, some of the finest cuisine Metrowest has to offer". There were small kids running around everywhere (both the bar area and the dining area) and the ones that were seated were basically screaming. Overall, while the food was good and the service was fine we could not eat and leave fast enough. I don't expect tons of kids in a bar area when I want to have a pint and it was impossible to have a conversation with the noise level created by small children screaming and and running around."

  • "Our table was waiting for us even though we were about 10 minutes late . Hostess very friendly and waitress very pleasant with high energy. The only down note was that our table was in the bar which was crowded and extremely noisy. The food took our mind off the bar noise. The four of us ordered a calamari appetizer which was ample for all. Steak and seafood was done very nicely ....my "roasted cod dinner " was outstanding. It was a casual night so the bar noise was not a huge problem. We will definetly dine @ Stone's again. The next time we will ask specificly for a table in the adjacent dinning room ."

  • "We've been to Stone's Public House many times, and always come away with a good feelin about the food and experience. Keep up the good work. We need more restaurants like that in the western suburbs of Boston."

  • "Been going to Stone's for about two decades now, but very infrequently. Very up/down location, as it has changed ownership over and again. Went with friends recently, and was pleasantly surprised by the meal. Good beer choices, and good overall vibe. Will go back."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Food was delicious. Clam and Haddock Chowder was the best I have ever had! A bit pricey for appetizers and meals, but not for sandwiches."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Love the ambience and small plates. It may be a neighborhood spot, but the food is far above 'bar' food. Try the mussels, they are delish! Good value for your money and really friendly staff. This really is one of my favorite spots!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "Stone's is a great place with basic food and a decent beer and wine list."

  • "Great local place with many years of providing excellant service and food .... easy going atmosphere and sometimes music too"
    Dined on 2/9/2014
  • "We came here with another family and the kids. We liked the diverse menu with sandwiches, steaks, burgers, pub fare, fish and full bar. Busy Saturday night and the staff service was attentive and quick. While nobody raved about their meal, we will be back because this place is a local gem and prices are reasonable."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Overall our experience was good. The server was great and I love the old Inn setting. Our only complaint was a couple of the meals were cold and had to be sent back. They were apologetic and brought out new meals,"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Wife and I were looking for something close to Natick and this was just a few minutes down the road. They had a very nice beer selection and the food was great. Properly sized portions meant we had room for dessert without feeling stuffed. Service was very good as well. Parking was a little cramped in the back but we parked at the store next door which was closed. Great for a night out!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "After hiring a rather last minute babysitter, we invited another couple to join us for dinner at Stone's Public House. I made a reservation, but had to call and let them know we were running about 10 minutes late. On arrival, we were told (very apologetically) that our table wasn't ready, as people were lingering after their meals. It took about 30 minutes and we had a drink while we waited. Our server arrived in a reasonable amount of time to check on our drinks and take our order. She was friendly and bantered with us in a pleasant way. The food was excellent, and it quickly became clear why the other patrons were hesitant to leave. My only complaint is that our entrees arrived before we'd barely started on the appetizers."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "My wife and I took my son and his fiancé here. It's was the girl's birthday. Best service we have ever had at Stone's. Food was spot on, everyone at the table was thrilled with the chef's creations and desserts. Get the Jack Daniel's Chocolate Cake.... Heaven. We were seated in the bar so it was a bit loud this time."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We tried Stone Public House for lunch, our first time there. We will return. Had a nice table near the fireplace in the bar area, which was busy but comfortable. Our server was efficient and friendly; she also greeted us when we first arrived. Food was excellent: I had grilled chicken sandwich and spouse had the Irish Breakfast, both tasty and good value."

  • "We love this place. We go here a lot. Service was off a little recently but our trip this time was great. I had the meatloaf and OMG it's yummy. My wife had the Fish & Chips which are very lightly breaded and cooked perfectly. Ask for the ketchup! Remember to look up the history of Stone Public House. Seems there was a card game in the basement that adds to the mystique to this fine restaurant."

  • "We have been there many times and will keep returning. Love the fireplaces in the winter and the outdoor patio in the summer!"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "You'll need to look up the astonishing history about this place. Once a railroad stop now a fine dining experience. Food here is not of the normal type you find at most places but has it's own flair and very good. I have yet to have a bad meal here. The meatloaf is to die for. Amazing bread for an appetizer and a crazy ketchup for your fries. My only concern is the service. Seems every time we go here my wife can't get her water refilled and the server disappears for long periods of time. Try to get a back up on your drink and make sure you have everything you need from the start. Don't miss this neighborhood gem. It is a great place for great food and drink."
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "Being able to make a reservation instead of a call ahead makes it easier to plan ahead and not have to wait in line. The food is always consistently good as is their service. We always get the shepherd pie, both vegetarian and regular and they are so delicious. Huge portions and always made fresh."
    Dined on 1/10/2014
  • "If you like pork chops, Stone's serves one of the best you'll ever eat. It's a thick cut bone in chop with a wondefully flavorful sauce. Add a side of truffle mash potatoes and you have a meal that I'm sure to order several times!"

  • "Great food, warm, attractive atmosphere. Good value for money."

  • "Although we frequent Stones and love it, we had an 8 pm reservation and were not seated until 9:15 pm! We were all starving and unhappy by the time we sat down. I think they could do a better job managing the tables to make sure reservations are accommodated."

  • "Stone's has a fun atmosphere, great food, and fantastic service. We hadn't been there in a while and were delighted to find that it's still as good as we remember. We are VERY glad that they now accept reservations - we'll go more often!"

  • "We really enjoyed our visit. We had a group of seven people and everyone's food was excellent. There is a nice selection of draft beers, cocktails, etc. The setting is lovely, exposed beams, fireplaces, rustic tavern style and very clean. Fantastic service from a team that clearly aims to please. Everything is cooked to order and they dont even have a microwave in the building. We would definitely go back."

  • "Historic pub with great pub feeling. Good beer selection, though could use more micro choices. Food very good but menu confusing, mostly ala carte. Moderately priced. One of very few true pubs anywhere near here."

  • "If you want a fun and energetic alive place to dine, look no further. Always a great meal and I noticed that the wait staff has improved dramatically ! In the past I could have found reason to complain....no longer the case. Excellent service and very attentive wait staff ( we had Mike on this particular eve ) of course the warm glow of the fireplace helps on a cold New England night !"
