As it's closing soon, its appearance is a bit tattered. Notably understaffed but understandable. Still a nice bar but no piano player. Food was very good though.

It was a very limited menu, unlike what was shown online. 2 of the requested items were unavailable and one of our group had a meal that wasn't cooked to his liking, even the second time.
We didn't kn ow they were closing in 3 weeks. We had heard it would be in August.We did enjoy the restaurant for many years,

I looked at the menu online but when we arrived the printed menu provided (two pieces of paper stapled together, previously used) was completely different. It looked like a menu from a pizza place, a few basic Italian dishes, even the "specials" were simple items like clams oreganata, etc. We left and went to a very nice local restaurant that fortunately had an opening for us. We found out later that The Stony Hill Inn is closing in August, so I guess they replaced the menu with what's basically Italian diner food that can be made by short order cooks.

We were not warned in advance when we made our reservation that two large parties would occupy most of the restaurant. We were seated in a very noisy bar area (only seating available). Difficult to converse. And because of the location of our table there was a constant flow of diners walking past us. Food ranged from very good to just OK. Not a good dining experience.

So disappointed. Service was terrible. We over heard they had 200 people with 5 waiters. It took over one hour to get drinks and 3 hours to actually get out main courses and the food was horrible.
I guess they don’t care anymore about good food or service as they are closing at the end of June.

We were disappointed to find a number of items were unavailable for lunch. Since we have been coming here for more than 5 years, we were underwhelmed when we asked about several items and told that they were not being made the day we were there. Perhaps it was just an off day, but it was painfully noticeable as regular customers.

The chicken cordon blue special was by far the best I’ve ever tasted. Probably the best chicken I’ve ever had. This place is the epitome of elegance. Tables very comfortably socially distanced, I never felt unease. Was married here 26 years ago, and it’s still maintained the charm and quality that brought us here in the first place. Best around.

Lovely decorations for the holiday. So glad they made outdoor dining warm and toasty, though I'd suggest some warmer color light bulbs in the outdoor tent. Additionally, I would love some more accessibility – the outdoor chairs were not very comfortable for folks with a larger frame and there were steps leading down to the outdoor area, which may be difficult for wheelchair users or those with a cane. Mask wearing seemed to be enforced, which I appreciated for safety. The food was good – I wasn't completely wow'd, but it was a solid meal that you'd expect at a wedding venue.

We have been here on numerous occasions and never had any problems with the food or the service. Our most recent visit was horrible. The staff took our order, brought out only 2 of the 5 things ordered. We waited for over 40 minutes and then the staff came back and said they had to check on the order. When she came back stating that the order was finally ready, we were up from the table getting ready to leave.
