In the past, I hadn't gone there for food as it seemed more of a drinking haunt. I was pleasantly surprised with delicious American cuisine and the warm, hospitable dining room service. My parents were very impressed, as they live nearby and had never dined there before.

We ate outside on a beautiful October Sunday afternoon; we were lucky to get a good swatch of sun!

We made a reservation for outside. We were seated immediately and the service was great during the entire meal. Food came quickly . Waitress was very responsive and nice. The only thing that made it less than 5 stars was how quick and often the waitress wanted us to pay the bill. She kept coming back asking if we were ready to pay yet even though there were plenty of tables open and we hadn’t been there an hour. Mostly I loved the place. I hope they add some heaters and keep the outdoor seating !

We've been long time patrons of Stone's. Admittedly, we haven't been there recently with these unprecedented times. We'd just gotten take out the night before, but decided that having lunch there with our relatives from out of town was the best solution given the limited choices in the area and the short notice to find a table for seven (7). Our server, who we've had the pleasure of working with previously, was, as usual, exceptional. She got us off on the right foot, keep the meal going at a comfortable pace, and made sure we had everything we needed along the way. The food is good - always good. That's what we love about Stone's - comfort food that's consistently there to feed your soul.

Prior to the Covid moratorium, we frequented Stone's Public House 3-4 times a month.
Aside from "take-Out orders", we couldn't go to our favorite Pub.

That all changed when we made a 3 PM reservation. While it was too early for the "crowd". we, as usual thoroughly enjoyed returning. Our waitress, who was also the Bartender, was nothing short of wonderful - and everything we ordered was promptly delivered. We relished the Corned Beef and Cabbage Spring Rolls (which we missed).
Our Cheeseburgers (Med Rare, as usual) were perfect.
We will be back to do our thing there more and more - an enjoyable visit. And let me say again - our Bartender/Waitress was outstanding and deserves Kudos!

We enjoyed the outdoor patio. It was private, safe and lovely. We had a great meal with 6 of us. The service was perfect and it felt like a normal dining out experience.

We highly recommend Stone's.

This is the third time we've been there recently for the lobster roll. It is the best around. We dine outside and feel very safe. If you have one of those portable seat cushions, I'd suggest bringing it now that the weather is cooler, as the chairs are metal. Wait staff is always pleasant and accommodating!

Every visit, every meal, every staff member - always the same - AMAZING! It's just the best place to gather and feast and we feel so lucky to be close enough to take full advantage. No knife necessary for the Lamb Shepard's Pie. The lamb is so tender, a fork does the trick, but truly everything is delish.

In the past several months, I have been to the restaurant many, many times. The service is exceptional and the food is quite good, but I would like to suggest that you think about changing the menu or introduce some specials. Truthfully, the menu is getting a little boring. I have had your lobster rolls, hamburgers, chowder but you need to have some more sandwiches, another type of soup, etc.

Been a few years for us but we always order the Veg shepherd's pie - the curren version tastes very nice put it is 80% sauce (with ample potatoes). What happened to the veg?? No peas or carrots and barely any mushroom.
Server Brian was very personable and engaged.

Ashland is a bit land locked, but this party of 6 enjoyed the outdoor patio nestled within the wood fence screening. 23 types of draft (at least that's what the menu said; didn't see the taps). Excellent service from a very efficient waitress.

We came from CT and our friends from Salem, MA. We needed a place midway with outdoor dining. Stone's Public House was it. What a treat. Loved the restaurant. Atmosphere and food were great. Even enjoyed the trains going by. Great mac & cheeses. Friend loved his hamburger. Certainly will be back.

Great food! Been to this restaurant a number of times and it never disappoints. Our server Tori was amazing! Social distancing and Covid requirements were well addressed. Tori recognized a special occasion was occurring and asked us about it and gave us a dessert as her treat! Highly recommend this place for all occasions!
