Stone house was a great restaurant with tremendous food and great ambiance. It sits near the Guilford Dock and was doing business in an old stone structured house from the 1700 or 1800's. It had a combination of light fare to full dinners with an upscale feel at mid-range price.

Unfortunately, the Stone House has closed! Guilford residents informed us today, when we were in town and hoping to have dinner at the restaurant, that the owner has sold the property and closed the restaurant. Unfortunately, neither the website not the restaurant voice mail informed us that this had occurred. It's a shame because we had eaten at The Stone... More

Best seafood in town, bar none. Excellent food, great service, nice atmosphere ( get a table looking at the fishing boats that caught your dinner!)

We were so fortunate that friends of ours contacted us to dine with them on the final night of The Stone House. We drove by lots of Guilford residents who were helping to celebrate the final night of this fine restaurant. Upon arriving, we were seated promptly in the main dining room. We ordered some of our perennial favorites for... More

We were invited to attend the farewell dinner at The Stone House. They have a huge following of extremely loyal locals. We ate at the bar. It was insanely busy. We waited thirty minutes with reservations. Long story short. The food was very good. Everyone had some kind of seafood, swordfish , crab, scallops etc. The waitstaff did yeomans' duty... More

Visited The Stone House again yesterday for lunch. Had just read in the paper and saw on TV that they will be closing at the end of the month. We have been going here for years and lately more frequently as we have retired. The place is always busy and has wonderful food. Hopefully the owner will open another restaurant... More
