Although the Stones Throw is in the midst of a tourist area, a local recommended it to me and I wasn't disappointed. Service was excellent as was the food. I sat at the bar to eat and was glad I did. Lots of friendly people...and great conversation with visitors and locals. The bartender/waitress was helpful with suggestions and very friendly.More

Lively restaurant with accommodating, friendly staff. We decided to order an array of appetizers that were ALL delicious. The view cannot be beat either. If you are near York Beach, Maine don’t miss having a bite here, Stones Throw will not disappoint; promise!

I always make sure to eat there at least once when I'm in York. This year I was especially impressed with the atmosphere and the staff. There were plenty of wait staff on duty and I actually commented to my friend how happy everyone looked....They were always smiling & laughing with each other. It made you feel good just being there. It was clear they are well treated by their employer. And my dinner ..... a lobster roll & homemade fries.... was to die for!More

This is an upscale seafood place with spectacular views, especially from 2nd floor roof patio. The two mains - jerk salmon and halibut were fresh and highly enjoyable. So was bim-bap salad (more like a bowl). Shrimp ceviche was good, but would benefit from more...oomph.More

I came here with my wife and it is super vegetarian friendly. She had the veggie lobster roll and loved it. I had the regular lobster roll and it was so good. Like wicked good! I strongly recommend this restaurant but they do not take...reservations.More

I like this place and love the setting, vibe and service, however the food didn’t deliver on our most recent visit and way overpriced. We got the BeachBim Bop and ceviche and both were underwhelming especially for price. The kale was awful, not enough of...most ingredients except the rice in the Beach bim bop. Ceviche just meh. My gin drink cost $14 and was tasty but so small. We will try again this season and hope for improvement.More

The restaurant offers quality service, excellent food, and amazing views of the beach. Dan, our server, was very gracious. We will be back. Hoping to stay in one of the oceanfront rooms as they look beautiful!

We visited this cafe on a Friday afternoon. First there is an issue with parking in this area and restaurants do not have parking spaces so you have to park along the beach if you can find a spot. The place is a bit cramped...and probably not a good idea during this fourth wave of the pandemic. Third and most important the food. There is no reason for a plate of thinly sliced zucchini pretending to be carpaccio to be 12-14 dollars , nor for a head of roasted broccoli to cost the same. Come on really, vegetables costing the same as meats, nope should never happen. The tuna poke I had was horrible. Bland, with cold old dried rice. The whole purpose of a poke bowl is to marry flavours and texture, warm with cold , sweet with sour , this had neither and it was actually an insult to my palate. The rest of my party had burgers and fries. The only benefit to this spot if you can get a table near the edge to view the ocean than you are paying for said view. The drinks for which we had $50+ dollars worth where vulgar and with odd taste. Surely not the work of a professional mixologist. We dropped $200 for four people on a a mediocre unworthy dinner and drink fare. Run from this place not worth the price!More

During a day's wandering in Ogunquit, Perkins Cove, and the Marginal Way, we ended up at York Beach after visiting the Nubbel Lighthouse. We found great reviews for it and were willing to navigate the typically crowded summer traffic and parking challenges to try it....We were glad we did! It's a very comfortable, relaxing place with superb food that will surprise even gourmets! Someone in that kitchen has been around and knows how to prepare food, including superb, fresh salads, soups, and one of the best lobster rolls we've tasted during two weeks along the Maine coast. Not only do they offer warm lobster rolls with butter, but the lobster itself is warmed if you like and the rolls are larger than most places use and toasted beautifully. Excellent choices of beer and wine and very accommodating, well-trained wait staff and hosts. If you're in the area around lunch or looking for an early dinner, don't miss it.More
