Nothing like fresh beer. Although we could have had lunch here and the fiid looked good, we just had the beer and the IPA and the wheat beer were very good. Lots of parking and a very pleasant place to have an adult beverage.

I've seldom been in restaurants with a more impressive atmosphere: a huge interior space with high ceilings, lots of stone and windows. The gardens were (from what we could tell...it was nighttime) beautiful and would be a nice place to eat for lunch. All of...More

Enjoyed a couple nice tasters and picked up a couple bottles to take home. Stone always has some nice stouts and IPA's.

Fun place with interesting and comfortable atmosphere, great waitress. Food and beer were tasty. We had a reservation but got there early. They were very quick to seat us. I liked that they had no TVs.

I love this place. The beer, of course, is fantastic. That goes without saying since it's probably why you're coming here. But the food is amazing too; and the environment... stunning. The garden is beautiful. It is so relaxing to sit in this little slice...More
