Food delicious and service very attentive. Main Street was busy! Might try again if we can sit in the side outdoor space. Small menu. Might benefit from specials. Definitely a great indoor space when the times are better

We had tickets to Greater Boston Theater Co. The restaurant was conveniently located across the street. We sat at the bar. We ordered martinis and they were very generous. There was fresh pasta specials. We ordered and shared two of the options. They were both super delicious! We sat at the bar, the bartender was the best. If I return to the theater (the production was fantastic!) I will definitely eat here again!!

The Stones is one of my all time favorite restaurants! Their outdoor space transports you to a new world and is beautiful, and every single dish is prepared with gorgeous presentation and fresh, local ingredients supporting businesses in the area. I LOVE finding out what the specials are and highly recommend trying them-- they disappear quick!

We made a late reservation and only could get on tabke on their patio.

We were sat and within minutes our server came over with water.

We order a beer, a skinny colada ( which was fantastic) and the loaded fries. Large portion took 1/2 home. Delious crispy bacon, shave parmesan cheese sour cream, chives, cheese sauce served over a bed of hand cut crispy fries.

My husband got the roast beef sandwich. Huge roast beef served with a mound of crispy onion rings and a huge portion of chips.

I got the little gem salad it was a little bigger than I thought. It had lots of fresh romaine lettuce a spicy 1/2 deviled egg, crispy bacon and a little bit of avocado and shaved veggies. It was just a little over dressed for my liking, but still good.

Service was good until it came time for our check. When she brought my husband another beer we said we were ready for the check. About 15 minutes I had to wave her down to get it.

Overall great food drinks and service. Will go back again.

We normally love this place, but they had a bad night. The pasta we ordered was so salty it was inedible and we sent it back. Hopefully it was just a random blip and they will be back to the outstanding food we have come to expect on the next visit.

Great place to try old flavor but new way of preparing simple foods. Great punch drinks. Awesome place for family oriented setting, excellent location, town square location across for local Greater Boston Stage Company (Stoneham Theater).

We joined in with the trivia night activity. Love the live phone based play. That really moved things along. I’m guessing the host was a BBQ nut. Every 5 question was BBQ related.

The food, beer and service were well worth the pricing.

My guest had sea scallops which she said were delicious. I had the short rib gnocchi with vegetables. Also very tasty. We enjoyed the agave glows which are a Summer favorite and iced coffee and chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Another favorite. Waitress was attentive polite and respectful.

This is a great place! I was traveling close by and booked this for a casual business get together - drinks, appetizers (fully loaded fries and hummus tzatziki plate were awesome) the atmosphere was upbeat and fun. There was a live band playing while we ate - which while a bit loud, really added to the evening - good tunes. The food was simply outstanding - the braised short rib and collard greens on the specials menu was lick the plate delicious, portions were generous, service was fantastic. If I'm ever nearby again, I'll definitely be back, and wish I had a place this good in my hometown - I'd be a regular.

We were celebrating my daughter‘s birthday at a nearby escape the room and chose this restaurant based on the reviews. We were blown away. The food was interesting, tasty and served quickly (important for the eight children who were part of our party ). The staff was very accommodating too last-minute addition of people and an asked to create three birthday desserts. We highly recommend this restaurant.
