About the restaurant
Paoli Schoolhouse American Bistro is located on the banks of the Sugar River in Paoli, WI. The Schoolhouse was built in 1864 and was converted into a restaurant in 2008. We pride ourselves in supporting local vendors and ingredients to bring you the best quality dishes.

Enjoy a meal in our beautiful bistro or on the deck/patio as weather permits. We have a great selection of wine, cocktails, and carry a variety of domestic and craft beers.

The Schoolhouse is also a great venue for small events - micro weddings, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, baby showers, and any other celebrations!

Another great evening at Paoli Schoolhouse. The food is great and service by Forest excellent. Salmon with homemade spinach pasta was to die for. My partner said her scallop dish was one of the best meals she has had in a long time. House manage r is so welcoming and on top of everything. We are repeat diners, never disappointed.

Stuffed cheese bread excellent. Chianti average at best. Pizza this time better than last but their sausage was only so-so. Very nice patio and even better service

Food was excellent, not sure we had a bad dish. Staff wasn’t friendly, felt like they had a job to do and that’s that. And that’s the exact same review my brother in law had before we came. Food is good, staff was rude and robotic.

About the restaurant
Stone Porch is named after it's huge stone wrap around porch but we don't let that vibe end there. Comfort food, refreshing cocktails to warm up the insides and a great team looking to make your visit memorable. Our head chef, Jacob Goldsberry, believes that from scratch is always best and that brings an authenticity to each dish that will remind you of home.

We had a great family dinner on Friday evening. Overall, the service was friendly & attentive. The salmon, portobello sandwich, shrimp dinners were excellent! Unfortunately, a kiddo thought the chicken tenders weren’t as good as usual (more tough/rubbery. A few tasted & agreed.) With 6, it took longer than usual for food to be made, but it was completely understandable. We’ll definitely be back!

Food was great and enjoyed the new Haba Marga Tini. We ate outside, which was a great experience. The service was excellent from Lauren, who seated us, to Robert who waited on us.
