The food was good but half the menu was out when we went. Very few options for dinner. We were seated near the bar and the bar was VERY loud. A table of guests next to us who were eating their dessert said they just wanted to get out of there asap.
Service was not good
The food was incorrectly cooked and my guest didn’t even get her salad until after her entree and asking 2 different people.
The gelato for desert tasted like regular chocolate ice cream. My other guest ordered her steak medium well and it was rare.
The jazz brunch was why we came although we sat in an area where we couldn’t hear the trio. Overall the food was fairly good and the service was pleasant. The ambiance was just average but the view of the river was pretty.
Went to use restroom after dinner.
Men’s room had no running water or soap!
Wonder how staff washed their hands after using the restroom with no water!
Had we seen this prior to eating we would have walked out.
Reported to staff who seemed unfazed.
Nice view, food and service was good, very reasonable. Will have to make a return trip sometime soon
Service was very slow. I was asking about a beer on taste and alcohol content. Didn’t offer me a sample. I just had to order it and found out after fact. Thankfully it was low in alcohol. Tables around us got food quickly. Seems like we were the forgotten table. We weren’t in a rush so not that big of a deal just annoying.
Another beautiful brunch. We sat outside , watched the boats go by, and listened to a wonderful Jazz band while eating delicious food and drinking mimmosas. It is my happy place.
Great food and fan view. Excellent service and reasonable prices.
Food was not good.
The view is beautiful, on the lake. Parking is just awful! Not enough parking spaces! The road noise can get a bit loud. The service was sparse, the menu was terrible. I’m not sure what they are thinking? It could be so fun and if they served the right food for the location this place would be a blast.
When you walk into the restaurant it smells like air fresheners. All we could think of is what are you covering up? I had high hopes for this place!! We may stop in for just a drink in the summer but probably not.
Check email. I sent an email with my concerns and waiting to hear from someone.
Good food and relaxing atmosphere.
Excellent food and very friendly staff.
Lovely outdoor patio. Took too long to get cocktails after ordering. Waited almost 15 minutes. Only one server on patio who needed help. Went for Sunday Jazz Brunch. Musicians spent little time playing, more time relaxing. Food was very good.
The food was pretty good but the patio was great. Our waiter seemed to be in slow motion, bringing the appetizers out without plates and in no rush to get them to us. We waited about 10 minutes before the plates arrived. Also we were celebrating a birthday, can't bring outside food and they charge $30 to serve it for you. Definitely plenty of other options for better waterfront dining in the state.
This place never disappoints. We dine here at least once a month as it has become our “go to place” for a great night out and good food. The staff is so friendly and welcoming, the menu is great and has a wonderful variety and the prices are reasonable. We love dining outside on the patio, sitting inside at a window table over looking the water or hanging in the bar with the bartender Justin. Don’t miss eating at this place, you’ll love it.
This place never fails. The food is great, the service is spot on and the price is so reasonable. You can choose to sit in the bar area, outside over looking the river or inside in the dining room. All the tables have a great view!! Justin the bartender was great. Always smiling, takes a few minutes to talk and has great recommendations. We go here about once a month...we like to try other restaurants but we always come back here.
The view was delightful and our server Jenna was very pleasant and helpful.
The burgers were very average, salad wilted and unfortunately there was a hair in my salad
for which they graciously gave me a $2 discount.
I don't feel confident enough to go back.
Had another wonderful Sunday Brunch. The shrimp cerviche was very tasty and the stuffed sole was delicious. Everyone at the table had a great meal. The steak and eggs and french toast are our favorites.
Everyone there is so friendly and helpful. Service is always fantastic. It was a beautiful day and a lot of people were sitting outside, but we decided to sit by the window in the bar. What a great view. Stone's Throw is definitely my happy place!
Great view. Amazing outdoor seating. Good variety of food options and great bar menu. Service was excellent. Band was very good.
Excellent food and service and ambiance
Birthday celebration. Beautiful summer evening to dine outside on patio. Nothing better than sitting by the river watching boats go by. Food was excellent. One member of our party ordered roast duck - said it was delicious but serving size was quite small. Seared scallops were superb and portion size generous. Great that you can order from bar menu as well. The view of the river is breathtaking on a summer evening.
Unfortunately the food was so awful even bottomless Bloody Marys couldn't save the day. Latest visit was for Sunday jazz brunch. Gorgeous day, great location, nice music, but genuinely one of the worst meals I've ever been served. Salad looked to have been put up the night prior and the shallots on it cooked to within an inch of ash probably last week. Who can ruin eggs?! Stone's Throw, apparently. Burned bread, over cooked eggs and dried, tasteless potatoes that also must have been prepared days in advance. My friend's meal was equally abysmal: Rubbery mozzarella with tomatoes so under ripe they were barely pink, airplane sized portion of dried out, overcooked something they claimed as swordfish. Hmm, maybe. A genuine shame and frankly a waste of money.
That said, I've eaten dinner here twice and it was rather good (Bolognese, as I remember one meal). Brunch isn't hard, folks. Forget offering a menu your cook seems to hate. - Put out some bain-maries with eggs, sausage, bacon, French toast, pancakes, fruit. Done. Fix it, please. Such a nice place otherwise.
The piece of swordfish that I was served was about 1" wide by 3" long. I mean it was ridiculous the portion size I was given. And the tri-colored tortillas are a joke. The bean salad was the one thing that gave the fish any flavor. Definitely not worth the $19.50 for the meal. You can tell they really weigh every piece of lettuce so as not to give the customer too much for their money.
I will never return again, unless I want to get ripped off.
Jazz band was nice the view was beautiful. The food was good!
We expected better - no waiter was assigned to our table, the food was mediocre and not appetizing- highlights were the view and the duck pizza! Sorry to say we won’t be back!
Love the outside patio. Everything was great. So easy to make reservations online. Everyone there is so friendly. Our server took a little longer than expected to initially greet us so the manager gave us our first round of drinks free. Food was good. Never felt rushed to leave. River view is awesome. Can see all the activity on the water. Only thing I wasn’t a fan of is the table next to us had small children who were very loud and walking around a lot and we were looking for a quiet dinner outside. But that’s kids... other than that everything was perfect.
The food was delicious and the scenery amazing. The menu had alot of different options and I love the fact that you get unlimited mimosas.
Waitress was rude. Food wasn’t cooked to order. Patio was DARK. No lights. Not even canceled on the tables.
We had requested through Open Table seating on the patio. We were shown a table without an umbrella and the sun was unbearable. There were several tables in the shade. When I asked if we could move to one in the shade, we were berated by the hostess that they were fully booked and the tables were for other people who had reservations. Well, we had a reservation too! Of course, no one during the 2 hours we were there arrived at this "already reserved" table. I guess making a reservation through Open Table doesn't count as a reservation? In any case, the food was decent, the service from the waitperson was great. She helped us move the table a bit so there was some shade, but it was still uncomfortable. In retrospect, we should have declined and went to another restaurant. I would recommend with the caveat that you request "SHADE" if you want patio seating as they do have tables with umbrellas. Maybe you'll be lucky!
If I could give more than 5 stars I would certainly rated Stone's Throw even higher. The food was excellent and the staff upbeat and accommodating without being over our shoulder. I am having dinner
there tonight. If I were to make a suggestion it would be to have a larger parking area since I'm thinking like me, they get a lot of repeat business. While atmosphere is important and Stone's Throw has plenty,
the food is truly outstanding, from the presentation, freshness and the quality of the food being served.
Food was great
I just wish I knew wine was 1/2 price the night we were there
I would have had second glass!!
The view is incredible but need to work on the time it takes to serve food (45 min) and the temperature of the food was lukewarm for all 5 people all 5.
Went for lunch with a friend. Beautiful facility on the water, very kind staff, delicious food. I’ll be back.
We've been here twice and will return again. Food is great, prices are reasonable and the service is spot on. We sat outside the last time and it was beautiful. Definitely one of our new favorite spots.
Lovely river view dining. Cocktails and good were prepared very well. Service was very good. Reservations a must. Recommend. We had calamari as an app-very tender with a Thai dipping sauce. The mussels in wine were tender and delicious. The Cream of Asparagus soup was a blow of pure spring.
The atmosphere is nice great water view. Staff is excellent very friendly. Food was great had the scallops cooked to perfection.
Our food was very disappointing. The fish was overcooked and tasted like it had been frozen for months. The duck entree portion was extremely small with barely any potatoes. We will definitely not go back.
Amazing brunch! The food was awesome!!! Took mom for Mothers day!
We were a party of 6 and seated in the dining area with a very limited menu. We were never asked where we would like to sit. When we asked about other food we saw coming out and being served we were told that we were sitting in the wrong section and could not look at that menu. We asked to move to another section and were willing to wait we were told no. If we wanted to see that menu to sit at the bar. We ended up walking out. Not accommodating at all. If there are different menus for different sections you should be asked where you would like to be seated upon arrival.
We were there for the Cinco de Mayo special brunch. It was absolutely one of the best meals I ever had. I had the shrimp ceviche, citrus marinated steak and churros. Delicious! Others in our party had the nachos, cheese platter, clam chowder, omelet and waffles. Everything was perfect. We had a vegan dining with us. The kitchen was very accommodating and made vegan tacos for him . He said they were amazing.
Stones Throw is my favorite restaurant. The food is wonderful, the staff is wonderful, and you can't beat the view :)
