Great atmosphere

Love the outdoor seating area! Cozy, wood stove, out door heaters, rustic, just a fun place to hang out and have a drive and a bite to eat.

Great atmosphere. Great food, especially the burgers and the beet salad. An always interesting beer on tap menu, and the owners contribute profits on specified nights to local non-profit organizations.

My wife and I, brother and sister in law dined in the beer garden area of the Sterling Hotel recently for lunch and enjoyed it. The number of their craft beers on tap is large and the by the bottle list is large too. They also have many other domestic beers. The luncheon menu is good and wide ranging. Service... More

My husband and I stopped by on a Wednesday night for dinner - appetizer was ok -my husband opted for the Tavern Burger and I went with the Chili special both of which were terrible. The burger was dry, tasteless, over cooked. The chili special - was a plate of white rice - tasteless chili on top with a small... More

We went on a Monday night. We were sat with 2 young kids in the bar area which was frowned upon. Our waitress seemed on top until she got 2 other tables than she lost control. Our foods came out incorrectly and missing pieces. The tenders was missing the honey mustard, the burger lacked the chips, my salad had no... More

We visit this local joint regularly plus use their take out option as well. Food is excellent, simple, well made and the specials mix it up nicely. Family favorites include the Buffalo Wings and Mexican Corn for appetizers. The salmon, fish and chips and turkey burger are great entrees and ssshhhh don't tell anyone but their pizza is the best...

On our third visit, we learned how much more there is to this place than just a small pub with a great beer list. In the summer, it's a destination! In the Beer Garden, they have two more bars, bocci, chickens, and lots of places to hang out and meet people.

I love this place! Consistently excellent food and an incredible selection of craft beer. The staff is always friendly, they know the menu and beer, and they are very willing to help make decisions. It is definitely a pub atmosphere and not so kid-friendly. But a great place to relax with friends and enjoy.

I have heard about this place from multiple people and I just don't get it. I have now been there twice and mac & cheese (supposedly a signature dish) each time and found it to be extremely ordinary each time. The fries were also borderline Ore-Ida frozen fries quality. The upgraded burger (made from rib meat and brisket or something... More

Great food and vibe at Stirling Hotel - outside bar is nice, wood burning fire, the crowd is relaxed and the drinks are great. We had to wait about an hour on a Saturday but weren't surprised by that. Once we were seated, the dinner service was spotty at best - drinks all came at different times, one was not... More
