As always, Stone was awesome. The Short Rib grilled cheese is now my favorite. Get the pretzel to start, along with the quail knots.

The tour was fantastic and the service in the shop area was excellent! We did the tour on a Saturday from 4 pm - 5 pm right before our dinner reservations at 530 pm and it worked out perfectly!

That service compared to the service and food in the restaurant was disappointing. The food was good, but nothing to rave about. The Shrimp Ceviche appetizer was the best part of the meal. We had the Salmon, Ribs and Mac N Cheese as our entrees, pretty basic. Opted for the brownie dessert but sent it back because the brownie was hard and dry. The restaurant did not seem to be to busy, however we waited a while in between empty drink refills.

We will be returning for the great Stone beers, the amazing atmosphere of the bar and garden areas, and definitely another tour.

Recommended to go here as we were visiting the area. Craft Brewery - did not do the tour but would have enjoyed that.

Very pretty outside space, inside is sort of industrial in appearance but you get to see the large vats and the brewers behind the open wall of glass which was very cool.

Food was OK- Sriracha quail knots were VERY spicy (we were warned). We are not spicy folk but wanted to try them. I think if you like heat these are very good- texture, and cook on the meat was nice. We just could not handle the spice. Ribs were a were good. Caesar salad was just ok. Beer selection was extensive and interesting.

I would return but would also want to try other options in the area.

WE have loved Stone and the food for years. Not so on my birthday. The food was the worst we've ever had. We told the waiter and at least his manager did comp the appetizer. The service and beer were good but the food ruined my special bd dinner. Won't do that again.

They must have changed chef's since this one liked to char things and the food was not well prepared. Hope they correct it.

Sunday afternoon brunch was a disappointment since we came here to take advantage of their brunch menu which we found out they no longer have. Their delicious portobello mushroom sandwich, spinach/barley salad & olives are 3 items they no longer have.

I have eaten here several times and every time seems better than the last. By nature I am careful with my food dollars so entrees of $20r so are not that frequent of a purchase of mine but we were all very happy and satisfied with our choices - duck tacos, short rib grilled cheese and a bruschetta sandwich. Portions were good sized and everything was fresh and tasty. Oh, don't forget to order the brussel sprouts!

I was really looking forward to this place. Planned a "get away" with my fiance' for her birthday. We drove about 2 hours to be in this area with this place as one of our main stops and hangouts. I booked this reservation in advance and showed up only to find out the Garden was closed for a private event. It sure would have been nice to be informed of this instead of driving 2 hours to find this out. During the confirmation email it would have been super helpful to get a notification "please note: The garden will be closed for a private event during this time"....I would have been informed and would have known. I love Stone, loved the overall vibe and even took the Brewery tour which was pretty cool. My fiance' was super bummed that we couldn't walk the garden and have that moment. We had a good time overall but I have to say, I feel cheated a bit. Let your customer know BEFORE they show up. Give them a warning or notification of when the garden is closed for private events which I am sure you have records of in plenty of advance. You are doing a disservice to some of your customers who travel hours to come witness the full extent of "Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens" We only experienced Stone Brewing World Bistro.......no gardens. Good beer, good eats but disappointed in your communication to your customers who make advance reservations.

The overall ambience of the restaurant is picturesque. The outdoor area is like a cool secret garden with ponds, fire pits, and great little private seating areas to hang with friends. The menu is basic but good it could use some seasonal farm to table like updates every now and again to try some new thing as well as keep us coming back.

We were seated right on time, which was great. But it was taking a long time to get our food, so I asked for bread. The waitress brought bread, but didn’t tell us she was charging us for it. I have never paid for bread at any restaurant ever. I couldn’t believe when I saw it on the bill. Also, the food took 45 minutes to come out- seemed too long. And my pork belly meal was almost half fatty pieces.

Since my last visit, Stone has drastically reduced their beer and food selections. The fantastic bottle selection is all gone and there are many fewer guest brews on tap. The menu has a number of vegetarian and vegan selections and has a spread of $17 to $34 for entrees. The food was good but not exceptional. Service was very mixed. Our server was very friendly but took a long time to greet us at our table and to take our beverage order. We ordered two appetizers that were delivered almost 10 minutes apart. We had the brussel sprouts (the only menu item I recognized from before) and the deviled eggs. Both were fine The entrees at least arrived at the same time.
Note that we were unable to transfer our bar check to the table. No big deal, just a heads up.

Was a great experience. Ended up sitting outside and it was lovely. Fantastic atmosphere. It was busy and somehow we never got the same server throughout our time there, was a different person every time but no big complaints about that because we were checked on. Appetizer did come out about 5 minutes before our food came so the timing with that could have been better but ultimately not a big deal.
