We enjoyed the food and the service was acceptable. They were very busy so it was understandable that it took a little while. Our server was friendly and helpful when choosing the menu items. They have a large selection of unusual choices, we enjoyed everything we ordered.

This place has good food and ambience but the service is terrible. I made a reservation and my table was not ready when I showed up. The hostess was so rude, like my party was inconveniencing her because our reserved table was not set up. The food also takes forever (about an hour from the time you order). There are better places in the area, so I would definitely not recommend or be back.

Hi Nikki and I see you were in this past Sunday. We had a really challenging day and we were not properly prepared for the volume of business that came through the doors that day. I apologize that your experience was not a good one. Certainly there is no excuse for the host being rude. I'll be sure and follow up on that. I'll also email you privately. Scott

If dining outdoors, be prepared to stop conversing every 15 min or so. The airplanes taking off are REALLY loud.

Love Stone Brewing and the beer flights were great. The service was exceptionally slow. It took over two hours for us to finish our meal. The food was marginal as well.

POOR service. . . .seemed like we had been *forgotten* on the patio. Very few tables were occupied, so server definitely was not busy. . . . We have never experienced this problem in our frequent visits to Escondido Stone.

I love Stone Beer. We ordered our drinks off of the menu we were given, before being told, there are two separate food & drink menus for the inside & outside. The restaurant was not packed, but the service was really slow. The venue is nice, but it could use a fresh approach to hopefully fill this place. The restaurant in North county is awesome, so I can’t understand why this one is lacking, or if we happened to dine there on an off night.

Even the overflight of the aircraft departing from Lindbergh Field kind of fit into the ambiance. Actually, the interruptions of the flights imposed hiatuses on the conversation that had good effect on the conversation. We loved the openness of the outdoor tables and the informality of the decomposed granite flooring. The food was great. Service was a little slower than we liked.

I stopped going to Stone for meals when their menu was "all over the map" with duck tacos, weird salads, Indian dishes and other strange offerings. But now they've gained some focus, and have two burgers (hooray) and even a steak. We went for restaurant week, so the offerings were somewhat limited, but the food quality was good and both burgers were quite delicious. I'm glad to see they have catered to the palate of many of the people who actually eat there.

Loved stone! First time here with 3 adults and 3 kids. Variety of food, all of it was amazing! A stand out was the sticky ribs and the sausage rigatoni!!! Getting a refill takes a little longer than most restaurants but feel that’s more of a thing in San Diego in general. A lot of a guests and staff working really hard to keep lots of larger groups happy! All in all, probably in my top 5 restaurants in the San Diego area and we can’t wait to come again!!!

Good beer, nice atmosphere, but service wasn’t great and they got both our orders wrong and couldn’t find anyone to talk to. Ended up taking what we didn't want off and just dealing with it. Restaurant was pretty empty, ate a little before 5 on a Friday.

All the staff we met were delightful and helpful. Beers, of course, are great. Wide range of food available...attractive and tastes good too. Very attentive wait staff, but not overdone. We thought it was funny to be in the flight path from San Diego airport, but some folks kept putting their fingers in their ears each time a plane came over. Nice gift store too.

Indoors and out in its garden this restaurant is so uniquely beautiful and energetic at night, I'd probably rate it five stars even if I'd only had a coffee here. Food menu was varied and flavorful, good portions, reasonable prices, and very attentive and friendly service, from arrival on through the meal.

We enjoyed a lovely evening here. The gardens are lovely. The food was great! The beer was also very good. Our server was very familiar with all the offerings and helped steer us to menu items we would like. We enjoyed the singer in the garden. This place has a very comfortable feeling...there are families with small children to older adults, enjoying good food, drink and entertainment!

Love Stone Brewery Liberty Station. Great outdoor atmosphere. Staff is awesome. Might be time to expand the dinner menu a bit, and reign in the kids running around, but that won’t deter us from returning next time we are in town.

We love the gardens. Fun place to take visitors. Would recommend brewing one lite style beer. Possibly an American Ale. Manager was nice and came over to recommend adding water to the beer. That didn’t sound or taste very appetizing. “E” for Effort. We will be back, we still enjoy.

Sat outside by the coy pond. The airplane noise from taking off was horrible. Once or twice in 30 mins would be tolerable, but this was constant. Ugh!

I’ll sit indoors if I return. Otherwise, all else was fine.
