The service was lacking, but it's probably due to their new touchless ordering policy. We needed to enter our personal information and credit card number before looking at a menu. We ordered from the cellphone and paid from the cellphone. There were two of us dining. When our drinks were delivered they were set at the far end of the table. We had to stand reach over the table to get them. We asked for straws - the server brought back one straw. When our food was delivered, we asked for ketchup and extra napkins, but after our food was delivered, we never saw our server again. No one asked is our meal was prepared or anything, but they didn't hesitate to add a 4% surcharge and automatically added 20% tip [with an option to modify] Service while dining during COVID has really gone downhill.
Awesome Restaraunt. We will definitely be back. The food was delicious. Just a beautiful place.
The only issue was the city sewage line stank up the place briefly.
The dining experience was very nice considering Covid conditions. The smell from the creek came in waves, it was awful. I saw so many people moving to different seats. I’m not sure that would help.
The one thing you don’t want is a terrible smell while you are enjoying your conversation and great food.
Stone is awesome. The beer is great, food is tasty, and ambiance is delightful! The only downside was that we didn’t get to talk to waiters (which I do understand due to Covid) and that even though we placed two separate orders in the app within minutes of each other one came out about 10 minutes later.
We were seated away from all heaters, so asked to be moved, and that request was accommodated. The menu is much smaller than pre-covid. Both times I've been there recently the food was really slow in coming to the table, like 40 minutes. With a restricted menu, how is that happening? One of our diners has a medical condition that required a simple request, which was to serve sauces on the side so she could determine whether or not to use them. Botched that. Had to replace the order. The burger was surprisingly small compared to other restaurant burgers. Prices are just sort of okay. Overall: MEH.
The food was delicious, but didnt care for the way we had to order, or place additional orders and even include to go boxes etc. Took 23 minutes to get a to go box. If I am doing all the work the tip should come to us.
At first it was a little confusing regarding the ordering, but once we got the hang of it there weren't any problems. The only thing we didn't like was that we HAD to leave a tip everytime we ordered something. I am actually a great tipper, so I didn't even tip as much as I normally would. I just didn't like that the only option was to tip with every order.
Amazing time! The Mac N Cheese is amazing! 😊For main course, get the carnita tacos 🌮.
Very clean and safe! Contactless service with ordering, payment, questions, and delivery over the phone.
The food was amazing and the overall experience was amazing and would definitely revisit again.
We order Summer/Garden Rib Platter, meat fell off the bone! Delicious! Street tacos are very good, as well! Also, tried a few Bold Beginnings, onion rings, mac n cheese, charred brussels sprouts (yum) and the cheese bread. Also, explored the beer flights.
The garden had been expanded and is beautiful!
Great place to bring friends and family!
Great food, beautiful outdoor seating, very nice staff.
Solid food solid brews. Doing it right with the pandemic...perfect place!
I’ve never been disappointed with the food here, but I come for the beer. Stone has really provided a great dining experience during this crazy time.
Given the Covid circumstances, had to make reservations but were seated promptly. Size of back patio area is great and they can fit a good amount of people. Food was great and service was friendly and quick. Overall, had a great time coming in from Las Vegas.
We visit Stone every time we come to town. Being from Las Vegas, we know food and Stone never disappoints. Pretzels and beer cheese and beer battered onion rings are a must! Beautiful location and amazing service. We can’t wait for our next visit.
Ordering was very easy and convenient. The area was clean and pretty with all the lights.
Such a cool spot. Great for beer and food and ambiance.
Excellent restaurant. Superb food and exceptional service.
Great food, great beer, great contactless ordering and food service in beautiful garden setting. Loved the whole experience.
The ordering App wasn't working properly, but Josh came through with exceptional service and attentiveness.
Everything was fine Except: I ordered the brisket sandwich, which I usually order at Stone and it was served on a bun that was not the usual “Glass” bun. It was cheaper seeming, dried out, less tasty, and not at all what was expected. Maybe they ran out, in which case they would have done well to let me know. Otherwise we had a good experience.
Be prepared to deal with ordering amd paying using phone app only. I did not find app user friendly.
We always enjoy a visit to Stone Brewery in Escondido. It has a large lovely outdoor space and the craft beer and food is always delicious. The staff does an awesome job too!
Food was great and the servers are very responsive. they are very cautious because of COVID and I appreciate the care and concern.
When I made reservations I asked to be seated far away from others. I figured we would be seated down in the gardens. Instead we were seated up on the balcony within 4 feet of the diners on one side. I don't recommend that area since it's too cramped and the view of the gardens is somewhat blocked. Otherwise the staff is as great considering the circumstances. The service is minimal since you order through a QR code and you pay and tip prior to being served. The food is delicious and came out hot and quick. Lots of people not wearing masks as they enter and leave the restaurant.
the food was meh.... the goat cheese fruit salad pretty sad.
We prefer to have our order taken by a server. We spend the first 20 minutes of our night out on our phones. We will return because the ambiance is absolutely beautiful.
Was celebrating my wife’s birthday. It was nice semi intimate. Everything was awesome.
Great beer selection. Food was spectacular. The Rib platter, mac and cheese, and brussel sprouts!!!
We usually like Stone and go there often but this time around the menu was lacking. Fish and chips was greasy and the flatbread pizza reminded me of a frozen pizza that I warm up. Due to COVID the service is pretty much nonexistent so even that didn’t help the poor food experience. Very disappointed and unfortunately this has now dropped off of the date list. Super bummed because this was our go to...ugh...
Outdoor garden table and excellent IPA Beers
My sons graduation
Our committee went there following a meeting. We sat outdoors in a very pleasant and safe environment. It's an outdoor beer garden after all and perfect for keeping Covid-19 at a safe distance. We had fun, the service was very good, enjoyed the beer and food. The food was decent but not exceptional but perfect for the occasion and to accompany the beer. I plan to take our group back again as it was a very pleasant experience.

The staff was very helpful with the smartphone application used for food and payment. Has a very reasonable corkage fee of $10.00. The outdoor table was very accomodating for 6 people even though there were only 4 of us.
They put us in a romantic area . Loved it!!
Enjoying date night in 2020 is a little different than the norm. We had a completely contactless experience. We used the contactless virtual menus, ordered through their online portal, and requested Togo boxes etc. through their online portal. Eating out can be scary during these times but it’s amazing to see restaurants thriving during it all and adapting to the changes of the current world. We had a lovely experience and would definitely go back.
Great atmosphere and food. Would prefer to have a real human being take our order instead of the phone
