“Just okay”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

I've been here quite a few times since I have been living in South Orange. The burgers are okay, they don't taste as fresh as even the popular chain Five Guys and they also cannot serve a burger anything other than well-done. The fries are frozen but still taste pretty good. Milkshakes are eh, they're made with syrup and this processed frozen milkshake blend--you're better off going to Coldstone across the street. One plus though is the Sloan Street chicken sandwich which is probably the best thing on the menu at this "burger" joint. Pretty decent atmosphere and it's nice that they cater to Seton Hall students.

“Can't Go Wrong with Burgers and Fries!”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Very casual atmosphere, which is what one would expect in a college town. We had burgers, tilapia sandwiches, and the fantastic sweet potato fries. If you come in hungry, you won't be when you leave - really good food and fast service.

“Casual Sand and Sandals”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

The perfect local burger spot for the family to kick back on a lazy friday evening or balmy summer night. The food is basic and I don't get they impression they over-promise the eating experience. Shakes, Burgers, and my favorite Steak Sandwich. Outdoor sitting in the back with a sand dune and a guest band belting out guitar tunes. What more could you ask for.

“Stony's Restaurant Review”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

Great Restaurant for a quick bite to eat, healthy or not. They have great salads, chicken and fish dishes, if you want to be healthy. They also have great burgers and excellent fries, if you chose to indulge the not so healthy side. All in all, a great place to dine in (inside or outside) or take out. PS - They always have a local band playing Fridays and Saturdays.

“grill food, milkshakes, fries and outdoor seating, yeah!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

This place is pretty simple. They make burgers, dogs, salads and burritos. I really like the rolls used for the hotdogs. The burgers are OK, but the Stoney's chicken sandwich is solid (grilled pineapple!) and the option of fish burrito or salad is nice. Outdoor seating is fun and it's super casual. Casual, simple, good quality fresh food. The service is usually fine. You order at the counter, and they bring it to you - pretty simple. There is also the curbside pickup option - killer! The only thing that would make this better is getting growlers delivered from the Gaslight to your table. :-)
