We usually go to Quiveys at 5 or 6 and most commonly we go to the Stone House. We were running late this last week and were pelasantly surprised to get a reservation at 7:45. We got there and put in our order fro brandy old fashioneds - press (less sugar) and two fish fry combos. Our server Bailey took our drink and food orders right away and the food came out within 10 mins and was nice and hot and you could tell it had just come out of the kitchen. Your food is always so good but this time it was exceptionally good. Thanks everyone for the great dinner. As we were leaving we heard someone saying that this was their first time there - and it wont be their last. Keep up the good work. If you would restart your birthday and anniversay club we would like that a lot.

We have been going to Quivey's for many years and enjoy the food in the Stable. Lately, we have been eating in the house for the Friday night fish fry. After a long week it is nice to go out for fish in a more calm setting. The last several times we have been seated around families with very loud kids. Would it be possible to hold an area in the house just for families with young children? It sure would be a better experience for your customers trying to enjoy their meal. You could see it on other faces they were frustrated with the kids being so loud. Thank you.

It was a beautiful evening, the perfect setting for an outdoor meal at Quivey's, which is becoming a go-to destination for us for a special dinner. Our entrees (lamb and duck) were incredibly tasty.

Quivey’s Grove is a treasure. The Stone House fills one with nostalgia - the smells, the farm family feel, the wooden floors and early last century feel - this place is special. The food is wonderful, showing a careful attention to detail and a connection to Wisconsin history. Stacy, our waitress, was excellent! This is a great spot for special meals or everyday dining.

Two of the 3 of us would have chosen something else on the menu if we did it over again. But the great staff, the service, the setting were perfect, superb. You might consider adding a vegan, non-dairy item to the menu; I had no choice other than meat / cheese. Nonetheless, it’s a fabulous, historic place to enjoy a relaxing, special time together.

Food was outstanding. But the service was only mediocre (waited a long time for our order to be taken, weren’t told about the specials, generally ignored); judging by the fawning our waiter did over his other tables it may have been because we were two women and not expected to tip well (a phenomenon I’ve heard referred to as “lesbian service”) or perhaps he was having an off evening. Since we were celebrating a promotion and had been told to expect a great experience, this was pretty disappointing. It won’t deter us from visiting Stone House again; the duck was perfect (crisp on the outside, flavorful) and the trout was delectable and flaky. The coffee was surprisingly mediocre, but the atmosphere is welcoming and a nice break from the usual. I’m hoping the subpar service was an anomaly —we hope to make Stone House a regular on our dining out and entertaining rotation.

This was our second Friday night visit and while I thought last week was wonderful, this week far surpassed my expectations. Four of us ordered the Friday night fish, three fried, one baked: so yummy. The fifth ordered the smoked trout and shared a bit with each of us and all I can say is WOW! We loved our orders but that trout was spectacular. The parmesan potatoes were cooked perfectly, crisp on the outside and soft and creamy on the inside and the TWO baskets of strawberry muffins were a generous add on to a fully delectable meal. I added an old fashioned, the first I have had in about 30 years, I will do it again! Thanks to all who helped us. We appreciated your excellent service.

It’s really hard to have an enjoyable experience with the small rooms. We were in the Garden room and there was a large group and they were loud enough to make pleasant conversation at our table of two basically impossible.

Quivey's Stone House is a great place for a Friday Night Fish Fry! We had the combo and it was as good as ever. The lemon poppy seed muffins were superb. Of course, we had a Brandy Old Fashioned and it was perfectly constructed as well. The service was very quick and our server was very nice. If you want a great meal and wonderful ambiance and less crowds than in the Stable, the Stone House is so very nice to be in for a great meal. I am very glad that Quiveys is on Open Table now because I can book a reservation without a phone call. It is so convenient to use Open Table!

Easy to make reservations. Service was slow. It was not that busy. Don’t take reservations if not enough help. I had to get up to ask for the bill and this was 2.5 hours after we sat down. Very dark in our corner. Waitress did bring us another candle to help. Food was good. Bread or buns would be preferable to muffins.

Our server reveled that she wasn't 21 yet (so she couldn't give me wine recommendations) and we found her inexperience a bit trying as the evening progressed. She certainly hustled, but couldn't manage the number of tables she was responsible for. We started with the large appetizer sampler, which was both large and interestingly delicious. Three people at our table ordered the Friday night fried cod dinners and were happy. I ordered the duck and my husband ordered the braised short ribs. We both thought our dinners were okay... not great. The apple crisp dessert (laced with cardamon) was excellent. It had been probably 10 years since we had been here. With all the options in Madison, it will probably be another 10 before we're back.

Good food, good ambiance. Not crowded which kept the noise down.

Had not eaten at your establishment for several years and I won't let
that happen again.

We put it on the list of places to go .

We've eaten at the Stone House many times and have always found it welcoming. On our recent visit, we were especially pleased by the service -- from the hostess who showed us to our table, to the very accommodating waitress. The food was quite satisfactory; we had the duck and the veal dishes. The mashed potatoes served alongside the veal had a bit more garlic than is our preference. But the half duck was appetizing and more than filling. On this visit to the Stone House we were in a room we had not known about: it had only one table. This made for a very intimate setting.
