Paula's Stone Cottage Wine Bar

Restaurant details
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Imagine if you turned your living room and adjoining family room into a wine bar and you can imagine Paula's. Add to the fact that Paula Young is one of the greatest hosts and the wines are well thought out, the champagne chilled and the nibbles are fresh, tasty and fun. I was there with my wife and daughter Saturday night and could not have been more pleased.

It's a small place with two rooms, both filled with kitschy knicknacks and couches and chairs that don't match but together comprise an eclectic ambiance. My wife is not a frinker but had two glasses of champagne. She was more relaxed at Paula's place than anytime I have seen in ten years and that included two recent trips to that unknown French outpost called Paris. Our daughter was over the moon with both the champagne and later red wine and I think would accept membership in Paula's unofficial extended family.

The place rightfully gets packed as the night goes on, but no one seemed the least bit out of sorts or unhappy about the throng. The guests ran the gamut age wise, some in their mid-twenties all the way up to a couple comfortably into the mid-range of AARP card holders.

We drove over an hour to spend some time up there. It's worth the trip.

The bathroom was clean and inviting.

This tiny wine bar is a favorite of my husband and I. We go every few weeks to enjoy good music and great company. Paula is a doll! She greets you with a hug and a kiss and always makes you feel like you are home. James and the staff tend the bar and make sure everyone is taken care of. Stop in and make new friends!

This is one of my favorite places! Paula is extremely friendly, as are all of the staff. You will feel very welcome here. You can taste whatever wine you want before buying and there is something for everyone. Paula's has live music several nights a week. The decor is very nice indoors and there is a small outside area to sit in as well. Do yourself a favor and stop in.

What a nice surprise! We finally went to Paula's with two other couples and had a wonderful time - not to mention, got to taste some very interesting wines. Paula and her staff are well versed in the available selections and provide some historical information about the wines as well as discerning what your taste and expectations are. We were very comfortable with the experience and especially with Paula, who really knows how to make her guests comfortable. We are looking forward to returning as soon as possible!
The food rating reflects the cheese platters which are available with the wine - the offerings provide an excellent compliment for the wines, (or is it the other way around?).
Whatever the secret, Paula knows what she is doing and adds a caring touch for all patrons.
