Excellent as usual. A quite busy (on St. Patrick's Day) but they did not miss a beat on service or food quality. I had the NY Sirloin with two veg sides that was perfect for Paleo. I almost bought another to take home for Sunday dinner it was so delish. My Irish other half had the Lamb Shepherds Pie which was great except it had to be sent back to have the potato top browned, as that is the proper way to serve the dish. Always a pleasure to dine here.
We went on St Patrick’s Day and even though the place was packed, we were seated within 10 minutes of our reservation. I think that is very good.
The appetizers were so plentiful and the drinks terrific..we got so full that we moved on to dessert..wonderful carrot cake..
Our waitress and all staff were festive and very accommodating...even though it really was so busy.
I definitely will go back.
Great spot! Happy we found it.
Been here a lot and keep coming back for the food but the service left a lot to be desired this time. Server made a couple of appearance but we waited a long time. Appetizers were delivered by someone else and entrees arrived before we finished the apps
Wonderful waitress, good food
My husband and I dined here fairly early on a Wednesday night. We were seated in a very cozy room with two burning fireplaces. It was all very pleasant until all the children showed up. We dined here before and saw lots of kids, but didn’t think much of it. Parents did their best, but toddlers will be toddlers and three of these youngsters just were not happy...at all. I get it. I’ve been there and done that. And so our food came, and it was great. Steak was cooked to perfection and well seasoned. Pork chop was juicy and flavorful. Did we want another glass of wine or coffee and dessert? No, we wanted out. This is not a place to come for a quiet(ish) dinner out, a date or if you expect to have a conversation with friends and actually hear them over the temper tantrums. This is a great local place to come for young families who need a break from cooking on a weeknight. We’ll be back but perhaps we’ll make our reservations a bit later in the evening.
As always Stone's was a fun evening. The food is always good, their is an interesting wine list and our server, who has waited on us a number of times, is terrific. On Saturday night the musical entertainment started at 8:00 P.M. and made conversation difficult even though we were in the dining room.
This was our second trip here ans we thought it was excellent. We definitely will return.
Vegetarian option of veggie shepherds pie was not good. Gravy on it tasted like meat gravy. Menu said it came with sides. Waitress said it came with none. Basically it was a gravy with a few vegetables. I didn't get the shepherds pie name. My dinner companion said his food was just okay. Beer selection was very good.
Food and service was very good. I would recommend the burger, fish & chips as well as the shrimp with garlic toast.
Very good food, service and value. Cozy setting. We'll definitely be back !
Fantastic waitstaff: attentive, knowledgeable, personable and just the right amount of attention!
We had to wait about one half hour to be downstairs, but it was worth it. Upstairs is more of a bar scene -- very crowded and noisy.
Classic old time public house with history. Comfort food done well. Fairly loud and not if you are in a hurry, but a great place to gather with friends.
For whatever reason they didn't have our reservation when we arrived. Ended up sitting upstairs which has less ambiance. Food was delicious but took long time. My husband ended up cancelling dessert as he didn't wish to wait anymore.
This is our go to restaurant and it never disappoints. Great food, very good service.
I am an old customer, but was somewhat disappointed with the flavor and presentation of my dish on this day. The drinks were late and served after the meal was presented to us. We had a special old friend from Europe and we wanted to enjoy dinner together. The place was not busy at all, and a good 40% of the items on the menu were not available. Please make sure the quality, presentation, service does not go down. It is not easy to find a good place like this one in the neighborhood. I hope this was a one time experience.
Husband and I went for brunch on a cold, rainy Sunday. We were thrilled when we were seated in the bar area at a table next to the fireplace. It was so nice and warm! We both had yummy Bloody Mary's although it was missing celery. I had an omelette which was great and my husband had a corned beef sandwich which he raved about. Great beer selection as well as other craft cocktails. There was a guitar player singing tunes which we loved. We stayed longer than planned due to the atmosphere. Will be back.
The food was terrific. It always is. Stone's is my default "let's go out" place, whether just my partner and me, or with local friends. On a prior visit, a well-traveled friend declared their shepherd's pie the best she'd ever had.
The condensed version of my most recent trip was that two of our four orders were fouled up, along with a few other bumps in the road. We still left a good tip, and will certainly go back, but this was an unexpected disappointment. I'm going to chalk it up to a bad night, and hope it turns out to be an anomaly.
Stones Public house has always been one of the coziest places that my husband i go when its really cold outside. We have three children and when they were young we came to the restaurant on special occasions like New Years Eve, or Valentine’s Day, but now we visit almost weekly. We have gone to the Tuesday Trivia night and that was a great dinner with trivia fun challenging our brain while simultaneously entertaining our college aged niece who is local while in school. The craft beer selection keeps my husband coming back as well as the wings and fries that can’t be beat. I really appreciate the gluten free options, being sensitive to gluten, the risotto is a great option, along with the brined half chicken. The fruit sangria in the summer and the outdoor terrace are so great too and keep our mind off missing the cozy fireplaces!! Our biggest favorite is the fireplaces throughout the restaurant and the great waitstaff and hostesses. Its one of our all time favorite places to eat locally for these many reasons, oh i can’t forget the apple crisp dessert which is delicious!
We don't live too far away, but hadn't been there in a while. A lot of history, and food was wonderful as was the service and value ! we'll be back soon !
Limited menu because of renovations. Disappointed special birthday - 30th 7 items were not offered. Would of like to of known that as I would of gone somewhere else for dinner.
The food is delicious there usually!
The food was really good. The filet size was a little underwhelming for the price. But very tasty and cooked perfect. We sat at the bar and the bar tender was very friendly, but not very attentive. In fact we ordered 2 filets and he only put us in for 1, so we split it instead of waiting for my wifes dish to come out. So we split a small filet. We ordered a bottle of wine which was a good tasting wine for the cost. The atmosphere is the best around! Not too many places with cozy fires these days. We will come back.
The calamari was extraordinary & the rest of our food was fresh and delicious. Our reservation was at 6:30 and they were already out of the sirloin on the menu which the waitress did not tell us until my husband ordered it. They also did not have one of the cocktails listed on the menu. The drinks and food were slow in coming which was fine as we were catching up with friends but otherwise might have been frustrating. Our waitress was great and again, the food was delicious. Nice ambience but loud as it was a full house.
Love Stones! Great food choices and dinner specials (newish) The burger is solid and the cornbeef and cabbage egg rolls are simply awesome!
Food was good & the server was great, at our table. Before dinner, while we waited for our table, we went to the bar to get a drink. We waited for 20 minutes & never got served. Even though the bartender said “I’ll be right with you”, she then proceeded to serve several others who had just walked up. This happened multiple times, so we just gave up & walked away. Luckily our table was ready very shortly thereafter. Once seated, our service was excellent.
The place was rocking! The service was on point and the food was delicious. I had a very yummy cocktail called the whipped-snapper!
We love stones and have been coming here for a long time. At first we booked for New Year’s Eve every year, when our kids were small. The fact that the restaurant is on the haunted register made us want to visit. Currently my daughters work as waitresses and we visit even more often to see them. Favorite meals are the half brine chicken with two side dishes, best dessert is apple crisp:) the craft beer selection gets better and better each time we visit. The white wine sangria is amazing in the spring. In winter the fireplace makes it unbeatable for coziness:) in the summer the patio is perfect. We love everything about stones:)
We have always enjoyed Stones but on this visit the menu had changed (less choices), the prices had gone up and my meal (fish & chips) was dried out like it had been under a heat lamp for a while. Don’t know if it’s under new management/ownership but it seems to have gone downhill.
Everything was delicious and the service was excellent. I told them we were bringing children and they seated us near a window where they could see the trains. It was a great night out for us as a family!
The filet minion steak, salmon were delicious and with the sides were ample portion. Loved the corn beef egg rolls and calamari appetizers.
Diverse and nice menu options. Little on noisy side once music started and waitress did a nice job serving us with a very busy restaurant.
Food was less than flavorful but in the pricy side. Great spot we have been going to for years, but was not impressed with any of our meals.
Food is very inconsistent. Had to send back cold food. Service as excellent.
Good food, good prices and a great selection of beer. Waitstaff was very attentive and courteous. I love the fireplace, but the menu is a bit limited and selections although the food is good. I've been going here for a while now and it would be nice to see the menu change up some.
Sunday brunch menu offers limited but tasty selections. American and Irish breakfast was very good. Eggs were fluffy and well seasoned. Salmon omelette was delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The service was great not rushed and the food was amazing
Food was delicious! Cool atmosphere.
Our waitress was very slow and forgot our drink order.
Went to New Year's Day brunch to listen to Dave Penza perform. He is amazing and we'd have gone where ever he was playing. So happy it was at Stone's. I had never been. We had a party of 11 and the service was fantastic, the food delicious and the drinks yummy. The head chef came around personally to the tables to say hi and check in. Nice touch. Highly recommend. We will definitely return.
It’s a shame this place has gone downhill since the change in bar management. They ruined the bar atmosphere by trying to change it into a sport bar with multiple TVs. The new servers (the new management got rid of some of the old severs) are rude and seem inconvenienced.
We were seated at a table that was so close to the table next to it, that there wasn't enough room to get into the chair. We moved the table over a few inches so my friend could sit down. The server comes over, notices the table is wobbly and asks if we moved it. We state that we did. She was so unhappy that she ran off to report what we did to someone and get something to re-level the table. She basically never got over it and was rude to us the entire duration of our meal. We won't be going back, ever.
If you want to try Stone's, just don't move the table, the server can't handle it.
Really outstanding! Excellent food. Must try the Mushroom Risotto!
