The servers were very polite and friendly and helped to make our lunch an outstanding experience. We had a problem using the phone scanner and the servers were very understanding and accommodated us by ordering off the menu instead of by phone. Prefer to order by menu, even if it is a paper one!! Less stressful for us older folks.

I cant wait to go back when things are 100% back to normal. Although its still great service and food/drinks, it is still not the same with this whole pandemic.
I miss you Stone!

Service was absolutely outstanding. Right from checking in, the gift shop to the actual outside garden table.
We have already booked/reserved another visit with more of our loved ones.

The new set up worked out great, no kids running around. It was very mellow. Ordering with the app was simple and quick, the staff was very attentive and still made it feel like a normal experience.

Wow it was amazing to dine at Stone! The utilization of the gardens creates the most pleasant atmosphere! You feel like you are on vacation! I highly recommend visiting there ASAP! They have all the necessary protocols in place to make you feel secure and their order system through your phone leaves you feeling much more in control and less touch of community property! I would definitely recommend it and plan to go back soon.

Loved the “gotab” experience to order our drinks and food from the table. We had a great leisurely relaxed evening. With friends over about 3 hours in a great spot in the gardens! Definitely go back here again

Dine-in service is now available, with contact-less ordering handled via QR code scan at the table. Long wait times for drink orders to materialize, but that's likely due to fewer staff members and the new order-taking process.

Don’t understand why they can’t provide waiters - only 1 other party at outdoor dining and it took awhile to process order via phone and no real interaction with staff- seems a bit like they aren’t ready to be open and staff member said they only had 2 servers available

I chose this for my daughters 21st Birthday dinner hoping for a special experience that fell quite short. It started with the table we were seated at which was not “priority seating” as requested in the Rez. From there, we were told to order on our phone with no one coming to answer questions, etc. Prior to receiving our food or drink we had to pay for our food and tip in advance. The taco plates of 3 were brought out in single plates, same for the beer flights which I totally messed up ordering! My bill had to be credited. We ate our meal surrounded with many little beer glasses and plates.

For a birthday I imagined we would be comped a dessert which we were but I had to work that out on the side.

As for the tip, as our bill was large, it defaulted to 20% which I am normally happy to pay. This experience did not warrant that.

I understand we are in unusual times and businesses are struggling and I am happy to support them! I believe that diners should be warned of the experience that is now being offered at Stone upon reserving. Especially when a special occasion was noted on the reservation.

Everything was awesome, the experimental brew no 51 was amazing. I only wish the portions were a little bigger but everything else was perfect

Once seated we had a difficult time scanning the code and no one was around to help (due to new covid serving)we were also given a printed menu. The beer we chose was in the printed menu but not a choice on the scan menu. We finally got the attention of a server that tried to help us, he admitted the menu site was difficult to navigate. The beer was not available. So far this process took approximately 1/2 hour and we were extremely frustrated in a peaceful, serene setting!!!!! This was a birthday celebration and we drove 1 1/2 hrs to be here. We were not impressed with the ordering system, there are definite improvements that need to be made.

Due to health restrictions, only outdoor seating is available right now. Their gardens are lovely and serene. All tables were at least 10 feet apart. Must order by mobile app, which reduces the interaction and potential infection of the personnel, but it makes it tough to ask any questions about the menu (the menu doesn't give sufficient description about what constitutes 'smushed potatoes', for example). There were runners who inquired if we wanted refills on our beverage, so service was still good even in the absence of servers.

Disappointing experience. Stone is usually great but their response to covid is extremely inconvenient. You have to order everything mobile and you can’t keep a tab going. So if you order drinks and apps, you have to have a separate transaction to order dinner or more drinks. It’s ridiculous. No server to answer questions for you they just bring things out when you order on your phone. You can’t go find your friends at a table, you have to be escorted like you’re diseased or something.

Great, relaxing atmosphere. Stone Brewing implemented COVID precautions, such as mobile ordering, limited reservations, and hand sanitizer available for guests. Food was delicious, and beer was great, as always. I would highly recommend this place.

The self ordering using the app was very cumbersome. So much so I almost left without ordering. But after about 15 mins trying to figure it out we finally did. We love Stone Brewery! Food is amazing and the beers are my favorite. I decided to stick it out to enjoy my favorite brewery. I would give you more stars but I would suggest implementing a better method of ordering then the self serve app. I know the shutdown has forced your hand but many restaurants in SD county have managed a better method by just taking an order with disposable menus with your staff and self serve drinks instead. Ditch the app and you guys will get more business👍🏼

Best practices to prevent COVID exposure! Ie. Covering drinks, ordering via qr scan codes

Good times! Always a fun experience at Stone. They have beers there you can not get anywhere else which makes it unique, good gift shop, food portions are a bit small but not bad. Check it out you'll enjoy your time there!
