Stopped in after we were rained out at the STL zoo. What a pleasant surprise! The bartender made us some “dark and stormy”’s to help was away our rained out blues! So good! We had calamari-excellent, tiger eye wonton rolls-spicy and excellent. And the prime rib sandwich with frites(fries)-excellent! Children got Mac and cheese and toasted raviolis-I had bites from both! A very DELICIOUS lunch! We will meet you there to try the dinner menu.

Stone Turtle is an unusual find... Good food, tasty drinks, and attentive service at a remarkable value. They throw in a little kitsch too - their competently mixed cocktails are served with giant chunk of ice with a little stone turtle frozen into it.

As far as entrees go, the smoked chicken with peppers is moist and flavorful. The pork chop is gargantuan! The asparagus and polenta are great complements to the tender pork chop.

This evening provided great people watching. The guy at the table behind us was having the short ribs, and you could tell he was enjoying every bite. He even shared them with two other people at his table. The couple next to us were clearly enjoying their meals... he had the steak and fries and she had the gnocchi. Needless to say, you'll want to come back and try other items on the menu.

This restaurant really is a good value. If Stone Turtle were in an area with more upscale or trendy restaurants, the entrees would easily be $5-9 higher.

My wife and I went here for lunch during a recent Wash U visit. The bar snack sampler was good, with the fried cheese curds and the peppers being the best of the four. We split the pork schnitzel sandwich and it was very good. The beer list is extensive, and while the draft is somewhat limited, good selections and all local. We went back for brunch the next day with my daughter, who had the breakfast burger. The thing was 1/2 pound and was just OK. The tater tots were very crisp. The Breakfast in Bread was very tasty if you like bread bowls. The dinner menu looked creative, and we will go back to try it. Service is very friendly and prompt (shout out to Anastasi)

The food was creative but lacking I. Seasoning. The cocktails were good. The dining room is rather small, but the great windows make it feel larger.

Items cost a bit on the high side but are prepared to justify the cost. Started with smoked manhattans then the 1/2 chicken, grilled salmon and short rib. Chocolate cake for dessert. Everything was very tasty. Service was prompt. Parking not so good on a weekend.
