We went for Valentine's Day, service was a bit slow and the place was packed normally excellent service and food and tremendous atmosphere You can feel all of the 90 years the place has been there

Thank you so much for the the positive feedback! Valentine's Day was crazy busy, and many customers had to wait quite a while for both seating and food! We always appreciate customers who understand. More

My wife and I had dinner here based on recommendation. She had the crab cake dinner which she thought was good since there was a good bit of crab and little filler. I had a cup of New England clam chowder which was good. I then had the restaurant's forte dinner, the stuffed Rainbow trout. I thought that the trout... More

Wife and I recently moved to the area and we've heard good things about this place. Would love a place like this to be our go to for an occasional nice dinner out. We're 40 minutes away but were willing to make the drive based on reviews. Place was nice and our server pleasant and efficient. I ordered the Rib... More

I'm certainly sorry that your dinner was so disappointing. I was there that night, and I believe that I remember your party. Your server did alert me to your steak, but she noted that you did not seem overly upset. I advise everyone who eats out anywhere to ask to see the manager if the dinner is not as expected.... More

The restaurant came recommended to me by a friend. It is off the beaten trail and was a great find. We had ten in our party and the staff was very accommodating to us. The restaurant is family owned and we were treated like members of the family. When you are in Harrisonburg VA, take the 15 minute drive to... More

It's like going back to the 50's dining. Great service - with a smile and a range of foods to suit most every palate. It is a short drive out of H'Burg, but well worth it.

Was unclean and not very nice waitresses! If you don't like being around smokers it's definitely not the place to come! Very loud!

Thank mrsmcwilliams
bluestoneinn, Owner at Blue Stone Inn, responded to this review

We are sorry that you did not have a very good dining experience! Of course we do not allow smoking inside, so I'm not sure what the smoking reference is about. We try to keep the restaurant as clean as possible, and I will make sure the staff sees your comment so they remember that daily cleaning is essential, as... More

Harrisonburg's little secret for great dining and atmosphere. Seafood, steaks, hamburgers. Run by a local family that knows about service and quality. North of the city limits. Don't be fooled by the outside....there is hidden beauty within.

This place may be a little hard to find, but worth the effort to do so! Stepping inside is a trip back in time and as close to Bavaria as you can get in Virginia! The food is very good and the service top notch. The seafood is very good and the steaks cooked just right! When you drive up... More

Much nicer inside than out. Friendly staff but average food, at best. Crab cake had very little breading and was broiled so my hopes were high but it lacked something in flavor. Same with the stuffed rainbow trout and the collard greens. They tasted like something was missing.

Good food; great place to take friends, family, and out-of-town visitors for a relaxed meal of seafood, steak, or local specialties. Friendly atmosphere, so popular it tends to be crowded on weekends, but well worth a short wait, if necessary. Located several miles N of Harrisonburg on Route 11, but worth the trip.

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.
