This restaurant is in a gorgeous building with 2nd floor balcony, rich wooden floors that beg to tell you stories, and all the essentials for being an ultimate romance venue..... but it seems to be trying to be everything to everybody. The place was filled to bursting on this Saturday night so financially , you can't argue with success. Considering... More

Meal was excellent, Inn incredible, wanted to see the famous ghosts! Staff excellent as well! I had read about it for years, but was invited to go and it was so much fun. The best feature was the food and the eclectic menu...from full Irish breakfast to great lunch items.

Very good turkey sandwich and large side salad! Friendly and comfortable place with a nice patio. Lots of variety on the menu and many different beers.

We made reservations here for our anniversary through open table. We got a call from the restaurant confirming our reservation, so we're surprised to be seated in the bar when there were plenty of tables in the main room. Our waitress was not at all friendly and almost seemed put out that we were there. She passed us by several... More

Hi Krista, Reading your review, I couldn't help but feel my blood start to boil. Everything you said about the service, and how you felt like you were not a regular is exactly what I work very hard to instill in the staff. While regulars are great to have, we want to be welcoming to all, so they people feel... More

Excellent bar with restaurant quality food and very decent beer selection. Live music and outdoor seating here as well. Recommended, local bar that's better then many bars in Boston.

Good food and smiley staff. The two and four year old are a bit messy but that was not a problem. This place has interesting beers and does an excellent margarita. The food is good.

A warm and cozy old New England Inn. Stone's offers great food and drink with atmosphere and possibly even a visit from someone out of the past.

I have eaten here many times, the food and service is always spot on. It is also family friendly so it is no problem for us to bring our 3 year old every once and awhile. Literally everything on the menu is good, but I love the corn beef sandwich, seafood stew and full Irish breakfast (for brunch). My wife... More

Such a relaxed atmosphere where you can get the best regional crafts! Good wine list. The menu is really complete top to bottom. Hard to pick every time. Well worth the trip!
