Hostess was great and kept our table when late. Upstairs is the best!

just not the best place in town to take out of towners. It's far from a good experience. We sat at a cold, dirty table and were told to order from our phones.
No one said hi, I would say it was 'industrial' eating/drinking. Yes, there aren't enough heaters so glad we came prepared. Thought it would be nicer. The bushes blocked our view. Can you imagine asking for silverware and napkins, can't you see there are four of us da. Are we going to eat our salad with our fingers.
No music. We have been to Nashville, New Orleans, Athens GA, etc, just not the same. Move on. !!!

Great visit to Stone. We had a beautiful view of the river and the downtown lights. The food has really improved since our first visit right after opening.
Really great time!

The building is beautiful, along with great outdoor dining along the river. As you would expect, excellent choice of beers. However, the food is marginal. Particularly the bbq dishes. We all thought the bbq meats (chicken, pork and brisket) were poorly cooked and not very tasty.

Made reservations for a nice table to take my husband on a special date and they tried to put us on a round table in the middle of the restaurant that seats 6 people. The only other option was a couch area with a small coffee table so we ended up taking that. Nobody explained that we have to order our food by ourselves on our phones and basically have no personal service. Even when trying to order with special instructions for the food it still came out wrong. The ambiance is very cute but horrible culture and experience for this place that could be great if they didn’t remove any kind of service and personal experience.

Didn't enjoy the order from your app experience initially. Dont like to work that hard and like to ask questions when I go out to eat. But maybe its something I could get used to. I enjoyed the beer I had, which was a hazy pale ale. The hamburger was very mediocre, which was disappointing, because I only eat hamburgers about once every sixth months and really want to enjoy a very good one. Buns fell apart and the meat had no flavor. My wife had same issue with hers. Cool place inside, but with the covid we sat outside. Ugly shrubs blocked our view of river and Napa. They should cut them down in my opinion.

We were sat upstairs at the bar after requesting seats with a back. The ambiance upstairs at the bar left a lot to be desired. The food was good - we shared a brisket and sausage platter. I think the upstairs ambiance impacted our over all experience the most and left much to be desired.

The burger was pretty good but it was not the best burger I have ever had. The best burger I ever had was at Stone Brewery in San Diego. This was not that. I was hoping for the same but a very different experience. Still good though.

The only option to order is a paperless QR code on line menu. I understand that times have changed due to the pandemic but we could not make the app to work, nobody there to help us, no other option if app would not work, cannot see if order went through, difficult to figure out how to pay and when we got hold of the server to ask how to order, we got the response ‘everything works on the app’. Considering that the place has no parking, all the more that is frustrating that you will encounter the worst customer service there is in Napa. This place was in my bucket list since and it was soooo dissappointing that we had visitors from out of state experience this. I will never come back and will never recommend at the hotel where I work. Worst experience ever.

Little disappointed with the ordering process. All beers taste like IPAs, regardless of ales, lagers, etc. Bbq is okay, but this is the place for brews, not necessarily the food.

We were seated under the trees with a beautiful view of the river. You order via the QR code. Food and drinks come really quickly.
I’m so glad they put the impossible burger back on the menu!

Nice location and great view from upstairs. The food was not that great I had hoped for a better BBQ meal. Was a little disappointed in the lack of options. Other members of my party drank the beer and enjoyed it! Its unfair to comment about the service, they were short staffed, and as patrons, we just need to be more patient. The servers were very nice, just very busy, even with a small crowd. Thanks!

An space. Would have been a better experience if the reservation wasn’t so late. We were rushed through dinner and some of the items were cold like the mac and cheese. Pretzel is a must for sharing item with friends at the table while you enjoy some beverages.

The Covid protocols have completely diminished all customer service. You are seated, told to access menu via QR code. Totally fine….but then you place your order online and pay online and asked to TIP at same time BEFORE food even comes out. Not one employee came to check or even tell us water was also self serve. After we sat for about 28 minutes (no drinks or water) my husband went to the bar to ask a server if they got our order. Turns out it didn’t go through. Bartender was cool and placed order for us at that point. Food came including dessert. So dessert sat there while we ate. We had high hopes for this place. Seemed like a cool ambience. Cool bbq menu. But man, if we wanted to place an order online we would have done that for take out not dine in service. They really need to think through those procedures. It felt like a big let down. Most likely won’t return.

Everything is done through the phone, even a glass of water. They do deliver it to the table but just strange how little interaction with staff. I'm 60 so maybe I just don't get it.

Even though my reservation was not showing in their computer system, they made sure to seat us, even before I showed them my confirmation email. The food was good and came out quickly. The drinks were good and staff were knowledgeable about their menus items. Staff regularly checked to see if things were good or if we needed anything.

It was such an amazing experience. The service was super fast. They have this amazing thing where you order and pay on this website and it’s super fast. The second you order it, you get it in less than 5 minutes. I was so impressed. My husband and I went for our anniversary and we plan on coming back.

Our visit was not a good one... Starting with the death metal music playing in the bathroom so loud you wanted to cover your ears, contributing with a BBQ place that has only pulled pork that is dry and brisket that is, well, old. I realize the pandemic had impacted everyone, but please have the basics. The servers did their best...
