The Clam Chowder was very good! The meal took a little while to be served which wasn't expected as this isn't a large restaurant, but we were 8 people.... The servers were helpful and friendly. We sat outside and they lit the heaters for us...a little chilly but still nice.

Food was very good. We started with the clam chowder and it was so delicious. We had the grilled salmon and seafood pasta.

A recent charming restaurant with a young staff. Renovated gas station with some of the former stuff stiil present as decoration. We arrived on the thursday's all-you-can-eat-crab-evening so this couldn't be better. And food was really great, and abundant... Great experience

Poorly trained hostess/waitress. Very slow at every step of the lunch. Salmon salad had less than Safeway grade quality and old ice tea. One waiter flitted in out to shore up tables but two tables left before ordering.

We had dinner at the Old Stone Station because the steak photos on Yelp looked super tasty and they had decent reviews. We ordered the steamers, and split a steak and crab legs. The steamers were ok - sort of watery and not as flavorful as I like, I think they could have used more wine, garlic, butter and salt... More

The food tasted good. I had the fish and chips, nothing unusual. Just plain ol' fish and chips until we noticed the problem and wondered where else the little rodent had been. We tried to let the waiter know, discreetly, that right next to the table on the window ledge was fresh mouse dropping. Wish I had taken a picture.... More

We had recently eaten here and the food was delicious. We sat on the upper floor, which was flooded with sunlight. The service was friendly and we got our meal in no time. I really enjoyed it and I highly recommend it.

Cute building cute decor. We had streaks. They were prepared very well, BUT the steaks had no flavor. They were very tender well cooked to medium rare. But again had absolutely no flavor. Too bad! Clam chowder was great, salad was a good salad. It's a good place to eat just don't order the filet mignon.

Obviously a family run establishment with Gran showing you to your table and Mum and Son waiting on, maybe not the smoothest operation but a very efficient one with very attentive service and good, wholesome food. All of the above is served in a 'log cabin' feel with a good beer and wine selection
