About the restaurant
Stone & Barrel features carefully-crafted foods, wood-fired pizza and beers, wines and now cocktails on tap that combine for a memorable experience unlike any other in the southeast Valley.

Please note, Stone & Barrel is open to the public but is located within a gated community. The best way to get to Stone & Barrel is via one of our two public welcome gates; Riggs Road and EJ Robson Blvd (just west of Alma School) or Riggs Rd and Sun Lakes Blvd (East of I-10 exit).

Megan was our server, and was outstanding! We had a party of 11 for my sons graduation, and she didn't miss a single beat from beginning to end.

Absolutely fantastic food and service. Only took a star off for a slightly loud dining room despite it not being full. The bison meatloaf was delicious. We will definitely be back!

The table side guacamole is excellent. We will come back for it. It is the best guacamole of any restaurant we go to. We had tacos too. They were delicious. The chips that come with table service and with the guacamole are thick and tough. It's not our style. We prefer thin crispy chips. The atmosphere is festive and attractive in the Tempe location. But the music volume is too loud which is distracting when we are having conversations with our fellow table mates.

About the restaurant
The Stillery is the kind of place you can relax, eat outstanding, fresh food, and enjoy a signature mason jar cocktail.
We serve up amazing brick fired pies, juicy stacked burgers, fresh salads and tantalizing starters. The menu is comprised of what could be best explained as a chef's comfort food.
Our signature cocktails are made with the south's best shines and whiskeys. Looking for an amazing local beer, we have plenty to choose from.

Pizzicata Mesa promises to be a haven for food enthusiasts, offering a delectable array of authentic Italian dishes.

Really quiet evening due to heat of summer at a golf-course restaurant. The two pizzas we got were both fantastic. I went for the margherita but left wondering if I like the dolce & gabbana more! So amazing!
