Must Visit Place

We went on a Friday evening. Note they recently started taking reservations on Open Table and I secured a table for two earlier that day with no problem. I'm guessing once people catch on that they now accept reservations you'll need to plan in advance. We've visited a handful of times and have... read more

Menu has been the same for sometime now. With recent changes in the kitchen would be a great time to look at adding some new additions. Small plates of sorts would be nice. GM needs to speak to ALL customers and ask their opinions of ways to improve customer dining experience.

Stones has become one of our regular spots. Great atmosphere in the tavern with the low ceilings and dark oak paneling. In the winter there's a large wood burning fireplace at one end. On our last visit I has the meatloaf which is served with brown gravy and mashed potatoes. I don't know what they put in the ML, but... More

Over the past 8+ years, I've probably been here a dozen times. The last few times, I've been impressed, this past weekend compelled me to write up a little review. My husband and I took another couple from out of town for dinner on Saturday night. We had reservations, but found a better table in the bar (near the -... More

We decided to try lunch here last week. We sat outside under an umbrella on a nice patio. An occasional train whistle gave it extra ambience. I had their hot corned beef sandwich my wife had the roast turkey sandwich. She had fries I had a Caesar salad as sides. The sandwiches were amazing and the salad and fries delicious.... More

We walked in without reservations and got lucky. we called for reservations another time and were told the only thing they had was very late except if we wanted to take a chance there may a bar table open. The food was very good, expensive but not ridiculous. The sides were huge. The waitress did not tell us that the... More

We had heard good thing about this restaurant from friends and were excited to visit and used the occasion of our son's 12th birthday as a reason to go give it a try. We were very disappointed and wished we had picked another restaurant. For starters, we made a reservation through Open Table. In the section that asked for Special... More

My good American friend and I needed to let the effects of the day wear off and this pub met the bill. Food was typical for a gastro pub, US stylie but was tasty and complimented the beer. Suitable for a good evening bite.

I have been several times over the past year and have noticed a substantial improvement in their meals. I have gotten some very tasty lunches and dinners where everything was a hit. I loved their mac and cheese with bacon and had their ham and cheese panini recently. A friend had their fish and chips and said it was excellent.... More

We tried Stones again on a weekend night, after a number of pleasant mid-week vists. The food and service were very good as usual, and except for a malfunctioning (tipping and rotating) table top, everything was fine. The one deterrant was the large numbers of small children running amok throughout the facility. We accept this as veterans of, and probably... More
