We have been waiting for this bar to open since the big flood and finally it has. The new decor is really wonderful and the bar looks great too. The drinks had nice flavors but were so strong it was almost impossible to drink them. Hard to say that because its usually the opposite! The food was really good too,... More

I hate to give a bad review to this place as we used to enjoy both the bar and the restaurant in it's previous incarnation as No. 10 Water. Unfortunately, during last winter's cold spell, some pipes burst, flooding the inn and restaurant and forcing a major renovation by the new owner that included a major reconceiving of the bar....

I've often heard positive comments about the Daniel Stone Inn. Being a native to the area, I pass it everyday on my way to work but had never taken the opportunity to visit until this past Christmas for a Christmas Dinner with my company. The venue was as lovely as I had always imagined, and the food was wonderful. I... More

Went there for dinner last week.. my wife and I and a special friend. Each of us had something different from the others, and everything was very good to excellent. Even though it was an uncrowded evening, the service was less attentive than expected. Possibly just a bad night that way. However, the food and the ambience were good enough... More

We like the location a couple of blocks off Maine Street, and like the restaurant setup, with the tavern on one side of the fireplace wall and the restaurant on the other. Live music Friday and Saturday evenings is fun, and not so loud as to be intrusive. Service was attentive and friendly. Food ranges from excellent pub fare to... More

While staying at the excellent Daniel Stone Inn we ate in the restaurant twice. One the first night we ate in the tavern area by the fire. Excellent friendly service, good food and wine and a good selection of beers. Another night we ate in the busy restaurant and enjoyed delicious mussels and seafood.
