We didn’t get half of the things we asked for while ordering (side plates, straws etc.) and never did die to the lack of servers/staff walking around. Food was good, just wish we got all we ordered. My tip amount was also altered to be $4 higher than what I input, and I couldn’t change it without cancelling my whole tab and starting over.

If you want to feel safe eating out this is the place. No waiters take your order. You don’t really get the chance to chat through the menu at all. You order through a kinda clunky website. The food was so so. Ambiance was great. Outside with twinkle lights and a lot of space between people. In the pandemic I will take it!!

Stone was amazing! This location was gorgeous. We had to order/pay through our phones, due to Covid, so make sure your phone is charged, but everything came out super quick. We shares the Mac appetizer, I had the Indian inspired burrito dish and my brother had their burger and said it was the best he ever had!

Stone brewery at liberty station is always been one of my favorites. The outdoor ambience there is hard to beat. The issue I had with my visit is that they have moved to QR codes for ordering and paying for your meal upfront. This makes the experience very challenging. We arrived with a party of eight our food did not come together and some of the food never arrived. Several of the orders never made it to the kitchen even though we paid for them. A good example is I ordered an extra beer and paid for it twice but only received one. They should change the system and have patrons pay at the end of the meal that would correct the problem

This is a buyer beware warning.........once you visited Stone check your Credit card statement.

Outdoor seating was really well spaced out. All servers wore masks and they even put covers on the drinks when serving them. It was great before the pandemic and they are keeping it up.

I definitely want to say eating at your restaurant was not a fun experience. COVID and all if I am going to spend +100 on dinner I want a server. I had to get up after sitting at our table for nearly 15 to find out how to get a drink. The young man said yup thats how we are doing it now everything is ordered from your phone. He sent over a manager and he helped us understand.
I felt the drinks were slow getting out and the food as well.
I understand things are rough but please don't skimp on service, people need connection, we are secluded enough with this pandemic. Last month we went to Brigatine and it was great waitress and all. The food was excellent and so was the service!!! If my husband and I do decide to go out for a fun evening for dinner it won't be Stone. I like people, I like servers, I also like asking questions about the menu. If you continue to use this model the waitress or whomever should check on people a couple of times during their dinner ESPECIALLY if they are older. There is a thing that happens when you're older its called eyesight, and ordering off a phone is awful for us especially if they are older phones or have a smaller screen "(like mine). WE won't be back until you have real LIVE servers.

I love that you have to use the app for table service! Allows time to decide on your order, allows you to order when you’re ready, and allows more space for social distancing. Beautiful environment as well.

I would love to see this place open without the pandemic restrictions. It's a nice place, and the only gripe was that it sits at the end of the San Diego airport runway where planes flew directly overhead, creating noise and pauses in our conversations. The rib platter was delicious and the beer is up there with the best brews in the world.

It was cool. Been a couple times now since covid hit and they have their new ordering system. I’m not a fan of the system. You gotta order water like 4 times and it doesn’t arrive till after your food does. There’s no one around checking on tables so if you need a side of ranch or water refill you better ask for it right away otherwise it’s too late. Such a bummer but def something that can be worked on

The area was beautiful with plenty of space between diners. It was actually more efficient to order everything using the app, because we never had to wait to get a server's attention to ask for anything, including the check. We just hit the button and then left! Everything came out promptly and was delicious. Wish we didn't live so far away.

This place was perfect! Great shade and warmth options for whatever the weather is. Tables are spread far apart. Easy ordering! The staff was so nice when we needed something to just come up and find them since we didn’t have a traditional waiter.

Good beer and the set up is great especially for COVID safety. The service is literally non existent, don’t expect anyone to help you order, answer questions on the menu, or check on you to see if your food is ok. I also really didn’t like the experience of having to order my own food. It was truly a nuisance and took a considerable amount of time which I would have rather spent enjoying my company. Unfortunately I will not be returning due to these issues.

Positive experience. We arrived before 12 on a rainy day and were quickly seated. Service was friendly and efficient. We were required to register to order via phone. It took longer in the beginning to order using that method, but when we decided to order additional items, it proved to be quick and easy.

It's a bit different ordering direct from your table by opening up your own Tab but that being said the food came out timely, ordering was easy, and the personal attention when needed was there. Now for the food. We started with the onion rings which were fried to perfection and flavorful. Get an extra side of bbq sauce you won't be sorry. It's that good. We also tried one of their signature items Flatbreed Diavola. A bit more than a touch of spice from the calabrian chilis, cheesy, salty from the olives and salami but the star is the basil micro greens. Wow that small hint of freshness really took this flatbread to the next level. A must try for an entree is the Brewmaster's Brisket Dip. Don't sleep on this. The meat was so plentiful, well seasoned, and juicy. The au jus was special as well. Smashed potatoes were crispy pieces of deliciousness.

Food was good... and drinks were reasonably priced. I ordered the 5oz tasters. It gives me room to try different beers without buying full pints and getting super full. I like the the new ordering system..without having to wait for a waiter or waitress..everything by phone. Super easy.

Unlike our previous pandemic visit, service was super slow with long gaps. A dish we had previously liked (indeed, came back for) was way over salted. We still like Stone and won't give up on it. Chalk the experience up to the current circumstances...

Regular to this place, this was my first trip back since COVID. The beer is as awesome as ever. The new contactless ordering is cool, service is prompt. Menu has changed, all the food came out warm, even stuff you expect hot like the smushed potatoes and mac & cheese.

I had family visiting from out of town and though stone would be a great place for lunch. The new COVID emplaced style of ordering is very impersonal. The only contact you have with staff are when you are seated and food runners. Everything is done through the QR code ordering on a phone. Ordering this way is fine when everyone pays independently, but ordering as a group was not user friendly. Sharing orders to the primary persons order was not easy resorted to passing around phones which was not a great experience. No one came to check up on us, and we had to keep flagging people down to refill our waters.

The food however was great as usual and the beer garden is absolutely stunning.

While pulling up menus on a phone is nice, the ordering process should go through a waiter or waitress who is responsible for checking in on a table to ensure a more positive dining experience.
