    We are a Dinner Club that meets once a month at different area restaurants. We have been together for 17 years. This is our second dinner at Stone Turtle. The food was great, but our server, Sharda, was EXCELLENT. She identified the playful mood of our party and went with it. She made the evening perfect.

    Went to Sunday brunch for Father’s Day and had a lovely meal. Got the bucket of mimosas for the adults and our son got their house-made soda. The poutine was very disappointing, as the fries weren’t anything special, the fried cheese curds were chewy on the outside and the braised meat was way too salty to eat. Sent it back and ordered the Benedict sandwich, which was messy but delicious. We will go back and try some whiskeys and another meal.

    We absolutely loved our evening at the Stone Turtle! The owner is fantastic and so was our service. They made a custom smoked cocktail, an idea I just threw at them that they hadn't done before! It was amazing! The food was fantastic - we loved the entree of the night and the fondue board was so good! The mac and cheese and polenta were delicious, as well as the truffle fries! I love that they use a local ice cream place for their desserts! Supporting more than one local company at one meal was great! We felt like we were treated like the only ones in the building and they were busy! Made a reservation and were seated with no issues when we arrived 15 minutes early. We love Stone Turtle!!

    Basically, it's an upscale corner bar. On previous visits, I've enjoyed the food more. This time, I tried the Brisket Dip, and the brisket was pretty tough. We do plan on going bak, again.

    Was a good dinner, my wife liked the wings (general taos) and the tiger rolls (like a crab Rangoon egg roll) the salmon was perfect. Potatoes were on point. Brussel sprouts with bacon was good as well. Liked the bottle of water. Didn't care for the broccoli, but I think that was just me. The Caesar salad was good as well, wife liked it. Parking was excellent tonight.

    Have been to Stone Turtle several times. It never disappoints. Genesis has always been our server. I would say she's been our guide. She knowledgable about the food, also the bar offerings. Her personality is on a level all it's own. Highly recommend

    We thoroughly enjoyed dinner at the Stone Turtle. Our first experience here. We really liked the local, laid back atmosphere of the place.we ordered steaks and the fried fish plate. Steaks tasted good but were a bit overdone. Fried Fish wasn’t very good. Great selections of beers and whiskeys! Our waitress was wonderful and made sure we were well cared for. We will definitely be back!

    Wine list is terrible with only 5 not-great reds. Calamari, mac & cheese, and the burger were all good. The cheese curds and cheesecake not so much. The ice cream was a super small portion. Went for a birthday and not an ounce of acknowledgment to the birthday girl but otherwise great service.

    We were seated right away- it was great. Our server was very friendly. However I was disappointed by the chicken and waffle. The chicken was over fried and crispy and hard all the way thru. The waffle was horribly over cooked. It was more like a potato chip. The server brought a second one and it was also over cooked. I just dealt with it. But the mimosa and my friends omelet looked amazing. I also highly recommend the Tiger Rolls!

    We went there on May 21 for our 51st anniversary, so we wanted a place that was fairly elegant, quiet, at least slightly romantic; the kind of place you'd want to dress up a tad for. We were not disappointed. Our server, though young, was dynamic and knew her stuff. More impressive, she knew quite a bit about both the wine and spirit offerings, including cocktails. That's hard to find these days. She also saw to it that the wine was served on time with the meal, which has been an issue during several of my recent restaurant visits. My wife had the pork chop while I had the steak with oyster mushrooms. They were both delicious! I'm not overly excited about oyster mushrooms, but with the sauce accompanying this meal, they were delicious (and properly cooked!). The Steak was tasty and competently done, served on a thick slab of bread which, almost drowned in the sauce, was a lovely surprise. Although the service was timely, the pace of the meal was relaxed, neither rushed no neglected. We'll most likely come back to this place.

    Great little place right in the heart of Dogtown. This place isn't fancy by any stretch but it's nice and it has a good vibe about it. They have a huge selection of all your favorite Spirits and a good variety of Beer on tap. Their cocktail menu has some great suggestions, the smoked Old Fashioned was excellent. My Wife had the Pork Tenderloin special and I had the Mango Habanero wings, they were both very flavorful. Good place.
