This used to be a favorite of mine. Maybe a year ago the menu changed ( they say a new chef was brought in), and since then, service has become very slow, portions are smaller and prices are higher. They also took some favorites off the menu and replaced them with items they seem to have trouble preparing in a... More

We went with kids on Sunday night. The Tavern burger is the best burger I have ever eaten! Unfortunately we had a terrible server but despite that and the random flies, that burger will be bring me back. (Outside garden with games is a nice touch.)

My wife, my cousin, and I had dinner at The Stirling Hotel recently. My cousin lives nearby and recommended the restaurant; my wife and I were visiting from out of town. Overall, the experience was average; the food was pretty good, but the service could have been better. We didn't have reservations, and it was a busy Saturday night, so... More

Went for dinner 2 weeks ago and ordered the wedge salad for $12. Four wedges came and it was satisfying. Went for lunch today and had ordered the same and received 2 wedges only, ok lunch portion? The bill came and I was charged $12! I'm fuming that I was ripped off like that. Combined with the stale chips that... More

Live locally but have never been here before. It's not a hotel but a rustic restaurant. It's a bit on the divey side but service and food are great. Burgers are renowned. Try the tavern burger. Fries are xtra which is a detractor. Just added a beer garden. Great summer dining spot. Very casual. They have a smoking section outside... More

Don't let the little façade you see on the road for you this place is huge and goes all the way back into a beautiful beer garden complete with music, corn hole, tons or outdoor space that is fantastic! Stayed for cocktails then went outside and was completely shocked at the amazing outdoor space that they have. Haven't stayed for... More

My family of five stopped in for lunch on Fathers Day. I am very happy we did. Service was great and we loved the bar / restaurant. We were all more than satisfied with our choices and the staff was friendly and attentive. Without a doubt I had the best grilled cheese sandwich ever, on the menu, bacon and Brie,... More

This used to be a favorite local hangout of my in-laws, especially if everyone could join together in the big square booth at the back of the patio. This last visit, however, the band was so loud it literally hurt, however, and there was absolutely no way to talk to anyone. The food was mostly good, but the atmosphere with... More

Not including the wait for a table, our simple dining experience took a solid two hours once seated. The restaurant is large and sprawling with indoor and outdoor seating. It has loads of character and an attractive, festive ambiance. It was very loud and very very busy, and they were not good people movers in any respect. There were a... More

Stirling Hotel is a local institution. Great tradition of bar food menu. Very charitable. Are always part of good causes and donate a lot of time to local functions. All of a sudden their drinks became expensive.
