Cool old house next to my the rail with very food good! Customers can walk across from the train stop! Old and new mix! Can be very crowded and noisy. For a special occasion don't go on the weekend or band or trivia night!

This is a great place rich in local history. They have a limited menu but what they serve they do really well.

Stone's is a beautiful antique building with a great bar that serves excellent food. The only negatives I could find were the higher than expected prices (but the food was very good!) and the lack of Budweiser products. They have a good wine list and lots of craft beers. I'd be a regular if they would get rid of one... More

We began our lunch with a great selection of draft beers from Mass to Maine. The server was well versed in the describing the beverages. The Lamb Shepard's pie was both large and excellent. The brown sauce surrounding the mashed potatoes made it creamy to the pallet. The cheddar burger was cooked perfectly, accompanied by tomato slice, romaine, and nice... More

This place has gotten better throughout the years. They have expanded their menu and it's really good! I love it in the winter with the lit fireplace. They redid the other side of the bar to expand the amount of tables. Really like this place!

When our family wants to go out for supper to a local restaurant we often go to Stones Public House. We are assured of consistently good food and acceptable service. The prices are fair. Basically I have no negatives, this restaurant does not try to more than it is and what that represents is good food in a pleasant atmosphere.

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.
