It's a little pricey, at $23 a person, but the food choices are great, loads of fruits and yogurts, omlets made to order, all kinds of cereals and breads. You will not leave hungry!

We are accustomed and happy to pay for good food, particularly seafood when we are near either coast. So we were thrilled to see crab cakes and scallops on the appetizer menu, choices that matched our desire for "something and a house salad," before going off to a meeting.

When the waitress was soooo unfriendly and didn't start off by asking if we wanted anything to drink, we should have been wary. We had to shout our drink requests to her as she walked away, after throwing the menus on the table.

Everything from there was downhill. My crab cakes were four quarter-sized patties that had the appearance of a little tuna with lots of dressing, seared on each side. Fresh crab meat is white--I had just dined on fresh blue crab two nights earlier.

The scallops were a poor excuse for either scallops or an appetizer. The four dime,-sized scallops were dry and tough.

They managed to deliver two small, but very tasty house salads: Caesar and mixed greens.

Gluttonous for punishment who were still hungry, we ordered dessert. I had chocolate banana bread pudding. it was not banana bread pudding. It was a chocolate cupcake, cooked with layers of ripe banana through it, with too much chocolate (spit miles AND syrup), on top. Yuck!

I would avoid this place at all costs.

A bit expensive for breakfast but not bad for dinner. It is hard to get by with an inexpensive breakfast. I skipped the buffet and ordered French toast which was very good. But if you are in a rush the buffet will be quicker due to slow service. The service at dinner was much better. I ordered a seafood risotto expecting a bowl with pieces of seafood but was pleasantly surprised with a plate that included a mound of risotto, a very good crab cake, 4 grilled shrimp and vegetables and the price was reasonable.

Stone's Throw Restaurant has a very good, but pricey, breakfast buffet. Very extensive in it's choices, it ranges from fruits, to fresh made omelets and waffles.

Great food and staff but kind of pricey. $16 for a burger and fries and another $4 for a soda. Handicap accessible but different entrances for different meals.
