We had a new server so we had to explain some things to him a few times (e.g., drink requests) but he was very nice. The food was very good!

I love Stone's Cove Kit Bar and have only one complaint - they need more low tops. I appreciate that the raised bar overlooking the kitchen is sort of the point, but I wish there were more low tops for those who are just not comfortable or even challenged by high tops. Recently they changed the reservation site so you are able to request a low top, which I sincerely appreciated. However, I requested one with this last reservation and was seated at the bar regardless.

Never having been to a Kitbar, I was surprised at the quality of the food and the presentation. Service was very good as well. I would come back. The menu wasn’t huge but I felt that meant what was prepared was done well and it was fresh.

Our server was relatively new - Brandon. He was very nice, helpful, and patient with our toddler. The food was great and we will definitely go back.

Good variety of menu items. The food is generally good but not exceptional. Service is spotty. The server handed us menus and then disappeared. Had to flag down another server to take our order. And it really wasn't crowded.

Food allergy handling is spotty also. Three tries and they finally got it right. Still a long wait to get edible food.

Very loud due to conversations and bad acoustics. I put in ear plugs. Spouse did also.

It was better on prior visits. May try again in a few weeks or months.

Food was good, but our order was forgotten about. In addition to entrees, each of us ordered soup for an appetizer. We could see the soup cauldrons from our seat at the bar, but waited patiently as nothing was forthcoming. The guys seated next to us arrived after we ordered, but still received their wings before we had anything.

Food was good, but nothing to write home to mama about. Servers could have worn a smile, but as a traveler from the west coast, maybe that is normal here. If you plan to visit make sure you bring a sweater, as they keep the inside cool. Unfortunately so cool, that you need to eat your food extremely fast, so it doesn’t get cold.

Such a cute place and concept -- and the best cuban sandwich EVER. Was particularly happy to see it so crowded on a Tuesday -- I'm always spooked when places aren't crawling with customers -- love this place, coming back!

Unusually slow food delivery. Almost 40 min
But you were busy. Like slammed actually.
Ordered MW. Came out MR.
The salad sub didn’t show.
Just an off day.
We’ll still be back.
Great value and quality for the $$

What a great restaurant! I found it be searching on OpenTable for something to do that night. When we got out of the car my wife and I said..."something smells good". We were seated along the Kitchen Bar. The Waiter is a jack of all trades...waiter, bartender, and chef. I was surprised to see our local distillery, Murlarkey, was served there!! We had drinks, apps, dinner and dessert - all were outstanding. Try the Chunky Crab Lettuce Wraps for an app...OUTSTANDING!! My wife had the Shrimp and Grits...best she has ever had!! I had the burger and it had great flavor!! Will definitely go back...bonus was the fact that the place was hopping but they let you relax and enjoy the time/experience.

Great food, overall good experience but service was slow esp in beginning. Not sure it was shift change or what but in between service was abrupt, picked up with change of servers though. Food portion was great, delicious as well. I’d go there again!

This is a fantastic restaurant! The crab bisque is fabulous & comes with ingredients to create your own flavor & plenty of lump crab. We had salad, steak, burger, pasta - everyone loved the food.

The atmosphere is fun & relaxed. Bar drinks are creative and really good. We even tried chocolate cake which was ginormous. We will be back for sure!

Reasonable portions but not priced for value. Though reserved on OT, had to sit outside due to no inside tables which defeats purpose of concept sitting around kitchen.
