    So nice to be able to sit outside on the patio. Other than the very loud commuter trains, we had a lovely night. Food was excellent as was the service. One of our "go-to" places!

    I hate to ever say anything negative but food was average. They overcooked a couple things. A couple of other things were ok. Best thing is the shrimp app. Service is awesome. I added a star for service but food is 3 star. Drinks menu could use a couple extra options/creations. The experience is good bc the waitress is awesome and she did take something off our bill. So I can’t say enough about how great the people are.

    Great find for us in Ashland! Great selection of draft beers with complete descriptions. Food was excellent. The lobster roll delivered. No celery used to supplement which is a positive for me! Generous portions. Plenty of food options. Sat out on porch on a warm summer night. Great ambiance and shaded. Abuts MBTA train stop so three times had to hear the loud horn and the rattling of the tracks. The kids dining on the porch loved it! Service was prompt. We shall return!

    The food was amazing . We sat outside but kinda regret it as it smelled like there was trash near by (husband said it smelled like low tide) . Our server was great ! She recommended great food items & drinks . Outdoor sitting was beautiful besides the smell . We will definitely come back

    We really enjoyed our meal on the patio of Stone Public House. The beer selection has good variety, and I enjoyed a very local IPA from Hopkinton, while my wife chose a favorite local Jack's Abbey brew. She had the shepherd's pie, which she said was wonderful. It was served nice and hot, and had amble, delicious lamb. It was a good portion that she wasn't able to finish. I had the cod, which was wonderfully fresh and flaky, over slices of small golden potatoes, with cream sauce, a couple of scallions, and a few tasty clams. It was perfect. The wait staff was pleasant and attentive.

    Two of us had the Baked Cod, it was delicious; a nice combination of Cod, bacon and potatoes in a cream sauce = Yum! and one had the Steak; who said it was a good tender steak cooked to perfection. The restaurant is inside an old, supposedly haunted, house; always a fun take! in a relaxed setting, not fancy. Good friendly service, reasonably priced, good selection of local beers on tap. We've been here several times and will be back soon.

    We sat outside and the weather was great. The fish and chips are my favorite. The fish is lightly fried and flaky the fries are the best. I do have many favorites at Stones. I live in Florida, however, I visit several times a year and always go to Stones for dinner.

    What a lovely dinner out with family I hadn’t seen since last August. I grew up in Massachusetts but now live in Maryland & am visiting on vacation. My sister suggested this restaurant ~ what a special experience. Weather was perfect for outside dining, patio is charming, especially as it gets dark and the lights come on along the green fence. She loved her lamb shepherd’s pie, and both my heirloom tomato Caprese salad and flat-iron steak (m/r!) with parsley chimichurri & handcut fries were absolutely delicious. My niece & I had pineapple mojitos, and ‘the boys’ enjoyed their meals as well. Hannah was a fun, efficient server ~ good people person. The manager, Brian, was the perfect host & handled our reservation. What a charming pub ~ even the trains going by added a fun vibe ~ I actually came up from BWI by Acela!

    We tried the Irish Pizza appetizer which was excellent. He had the burger, which was very good and surrounded by a generous serving of hot French fries. I has the mustard crusted salmon which was delicious as was the German potato salad served with it.

    Hostess had no personality, I don't even think she spoke. It was Father's day and the weather wasn't the best, I asked if there was any chance to sit inside instead of the patio reservation I had made, she shook her head "no". She didn't tell my husband Happy Fathers Day either (basically didn't greet us at all, plus she was on the phone when we arrived and we waited about 5 minutes for her to get off). Waitress was barely better, she was rude to my two young adult children when asking for their ID, it was sarcastic and she seemed put off. She said, "I have to remind myself that kids born in 2001 are now old enough to drink"as she handed my son back his ID, and this was not friendly how she said it. She forgot to put in our appetizer and was over all unpleasant. Just unfortunate when you are going out to celebrate and the staff make you feel like you should have stayed home. Food was great as always, that's what will keep us coming back. Need new staff!

    We made a reservation for Father's Day based on their brunch menu found online. When we arrived we were told that there is no brunch offered and the brunch menu has been taken down several times. While standing there, we brought up the brunch menu online again and showed the bartender. No one seemed to care, so we left and ate somewhere else. Very disappointing.

    We have eaten there a few times before last night. The food is exceptional. Our guess is they have a fantastic chef. Service was adequate, but we are sure it was because there was a large crowd on a Tuesday night. A great place for my wife and I to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

    Ate outside on the enclosed patio. Music was a little loud and you have to expect a lot of noise from an occasional train passing VERY NEARBY. Food and drink are always reliably good. Service is friendly and helpful.

    Not the upscale dining we sought. Beautiful old building, but food was meh. Fries were burned and hollow inside. Lobster roll bun was cold and stale tasting and the lobster while fresh was unseasoned and bland. Maybe put some rolls on the table or something to welcome guests? Have had better dining experiences at more be affordable places. Won't be back.
