Great little restaurant that harkens the days of yore. I had not been here since I was a kid and remember this place well. It seems the fireplace was in use back then. Many locals visit here often which says it all but it’s not...More

My husband and two good friends visited the restaurant on a Saturday evening after 7pm. We were quickly seated, not too crowded and immediately had service and drink orders taken. The service was wonderful and all staff were extremely friendly! There is a nice, reasonable,...More

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. You are correct, we don't use a marinade for the steaks, and I'm sorry that you didn't enjoy them. Kind words for the seafood and the overall experience are appreciated!

This is a Rte 11 Classic. Very original decor, and excellent food. Dont judge this place the outside. Feels like you took a step back in time.

We are a small dinner-only family-run restaurant, and pride ourselves on great food and friendly service in a casual tavern atmosphere. The Blue Stone Inn dates from the 1920's and has been owned and operated by the same family since 1949.
