Five Mile Stone Ratings and Reviews
They are a favorite of mine. I love their brunch and their pear salad, along with their salmon dinner. The calamari is crispy and light, and the drinks are always mixed just right. Upstairs is a bit loud, but if you're looking for a vibrant bar scene that's where to go.
Came in on the early side of brunch. We were seated immediately and the waiter was friendly. We ordered a couple of egg dishes and a wrap which came to the table in no time...not necessarily a great thing for a relaxed brunch, but can't complain. The brunch came with complimentary cocktails but the waiter didn't remind us of the offer. After the food came, we had to remind him. Again, no big deal. The surf and turf poached eggs were great, only needed a little salt. We lingered and had a great time.
Used to be good ... now not so good. Something happened here ... not the least of which is the very, very, very, very loud music on a Sunday afternoon. Not enjoyable at all. Will not go again. Will not recommend to anyone. There are better bars in that area with better food. Too bad.
I come to Five Mile Stone regularly for happy hour and on weekends. This was my first experience for brunch and it was disappointing. The meal came with a complimentary cocktail, so i ordered a mimosa and it was served in an extremely small glass compared to other nearby venues that include a brunch cocktail with a meal. My card also ended up being charged twice. The waitress did not inform me she overcharged my card. I only realized it when I checked my bank account later that night. I had to call the restaurant the next day to confirm the overcharge was being refunded to my account. I'll continue to visit solely for happy hour or weekend drinks for friends, but no plans to have future brunch meals here. I also wouldn't recommend friends to have brunch here either.
Very good burger and eggs Benedict. Enjoyed a comp bloody Mary. Very nice service. Great room - co-owner stopped by and was very pleasant. I'd definitely come back for the burger - and great beer selection.
(Had to sit on a stool w/high table, and would have preferred a chair, but it worked out okay.)
Food was average. We had to send back the salmon three times for it to finally be cooked properly. The waitress only came over to check on us when the wine bottle was empty and not when we actually needed her throughout the meal. The acoustics were bad because it got so loud that we couldn't hear each other. They also allow people to smoke on the upstairs balcony which caused the cigarette smoke to come back into the restaurant so the smell was overwhelming and by the time we left we smelled like an ashtray and we weren't even near the smokers.
I've enjoyed going to Five Mile Stone a few times and they do a good job. We originally had a reservation for 10 but because of the snow, the reservation went down to 3. We were placed at a nice table near the windows but by the end of the evening we were freezing due to the uninsulated windows and no heat in that area. It was also very dark in the corner and we could barely see the menu items.
Our server must have had what seemed like all of the tables on the second floor because she rarely checked up on us and it took us asking 3 different people (including the server) for ketchup and a refill of cider. Maybe due to the snow storm, they underestimated the amount of people that would come out for drinks and food.
Besides that, the food was good and we enjoyed our dinner.
This was the first time my husband and I had been to Five Mile Stone. They attract a crowd much younger (and louder) than us. The large group of young people at the table next to us couldn't speak in a normal tone and continued to scream at one another to be heard. (This due to earbuds I presume??) Luckily they left shortly after we arrived and we were able to enjoy our delicious food. The waitress was great, as was the rest of the staff-very attentive and friendly. We will return but will have to figure out when would be less loud.
Notrd our special interest of watching football on our reservation and everyone went above and beyond to make sure that experience was great. We were given a choice of seats and notified at what time the volume would be turned on. That is not at all necessary and greatly appreciated!
Upon my first steps into the dining room, the strong chemical smell was an unappetizing turn-off --I would have left but my lunch guest wanted to stay. The odor barely dissipated by the time my food arrived. Greasy fish and chips were disappointing, too. I asked for tartar sauce and instead was served remoulade sauce. The culinarily-challenged waitress told me it was almost the same a tartar sauce? REALLY!? Oh and did I mention the diet coke from the gun at the bar had an unpleasant medicinal taste. At best, it was a mediocre experience overall. Eating lunch at a high-boy table, perched on a stool rather than a table ( which apparently is not an option at lunch) was uncomfortable.I couldn't wait to get out of there and go for coffee and dessert across the street. With many other options in the neighborhood, I do not plan to go back!
I have been here countless times for brunch but decided to try it for a late dinner and it was incredible. The food is great. The noise level a little bit much and we had to keep shutting the door to the terrace but that was just one guy who kept going out and forgetting to shut the door behind him. Other than that it is definitely worth going to - especially the crab cakes and the Tostados that taste like an all crunch BLT
- Great service
- Free drink with entree
- Food was overall pretty good
- Uncomfortable seating (bar stools only)
- Lots of loud babies. Not the restaurant's fault at all, but the location seems to draw toddlers.
- Only sunny-side up eggs on the menu
- Restaurant has a C health rating. This could be for something silly and not food-related, but they have the rating near the back door, not the front, so you can't see it when you walk in. I get it, but a little sneaky.
