    7pm reservation and we didn’t leave until 10:15pm! Three ladies that hadn’t seen each other in 10 years met for a reunion. We had wonderful service from our waitress who popped by regularly to check in with us. The dirty martinis were perfectly made and the nibbles of fried calamari, Irish Pizza, and Corn beef egg rolls we ordered were excellent compliments! As we were leaving the dining room was dark and we realized we were the last ones left but never did they come over to rush us out the door or drop hints to skidaddle! We appreciated their time and service! Thank you!

    Overall our experience was just OK, the food was good, not great, the place was nice enough and the service was less than stellar (continually got drink and food orders confused including charging our table of 4 for 5 meals - we almost did not catch this!). Aside from that the table next to us that decided to have a facetime conversation while eating was very annoying (who thinks this is a good idea??!!) but realize that is out of the restaurants control but definitely did not add anything positive to our evening. Not particularly interested in going back anytime soon.

    Was very busy and waitress was trying to handle too many tables at once.. she was trying but was not able to handle request for more dipping sauce before food got cold. Otherwise food was good as it always is and is one of our favorite places..

    The service is absolutely outstanding! I should note that the food is divine as well however I always go back to places based on service and everyone from the hostess to manager is ON POINT!!!! Our server checked back on food, drinks and waters. We were never left wanting for anything. The manager checked on us and the nearby fireplace and even remembered us from a previous visit. I can’t say enough great things - it was comfortable with great food and perfect service.

    We ate in the main dining room. As staff comes and goes the back door really slams shut. Pretty loud and frequent at the time we were there. Otherwise our food was great! Clean restaurant and bathroom. Hannah was friendly, attentive and accurate.

    We ate in the bar. It's terrific, altho two things: music was a bit on the loud side, and there was a fair amount of smoke from the awesome fireplace. It'd be nice if that could be addressed.

    Beautiful historic building and nicely decorated with a homey atmosphere. The fireplaces are a plus adding ambiance to the dining room. The food was delicious and excellently presented. My only complaint would be a few more menu choices. The server was efficient and friendly. We would all definitely go again.

    The hostess refused to seat us near the fireplace, saying that the seats were reserved (it was 4 pm). No one was seated there firing our meal. It was her demeanor that earns the poor rating. She was unpleasant.

    We absolutely love coming to Stones, especially around the holidays. It just feels like Christmas with the decorations and wood fire going. Food is always on point...absolutely love the vegetarian sheperds pie and the braised short-rib with leek mashed! So mouthwateringly good. We love the drinks...the staff...the ambiance. All of it. Thanks for being an outstanding establishment!
