The crab empanadas were amazing but not necessarily worth $24. You only get two. Service was great.

Great day at Stone House...we celebrated a Birthday with brunch here and truly enjoyed the lakeview seating. Food was very good, and the cocktails were even better. Will look forward to doing a dinner here and would highly recommend for a really pretty setting to go along with the food and drinks.... staff was quite attentive as well.

The restaurant was busy however we were seated right away when we arrived. Our server was attentive and efficient. The food was delicious - everyone loved their meals from the appetizers all the way to dessert! My peach sangria was one of the best I’ve had. We will be back again soon!
