Fire Stones has a decent menu and the prices are not too bad but consistently the food is cold and the service is not good. The servers are around but either don't care if you aren't happy or are too afraid to tell someone. 80% of our dinners were stone cold. Waitress said she was sorry it wasn't our day. Insult to injury, because we were a party of more than six a 20% gratuity was added to our bill, which was not deserved. I wish we had gone to Pizza Chef down the road.

Just save your money and don't go to Firestones. We went for dinner and were really disappointed. Our food (chicken Marsala and chicken Parmesan) was cold and bland, respectively. The restaurant was "out" of various ingredients and seemed to be struggling with putting dishes together. I think this restaurant and it's sister one, Bentley's, should just stick to bar food and beer. Entrees are way out of their league.

We recently dined at the casual restaurant. We love pizza and rarely miss a chance to discover new " pizza dives " we were looking for something different so all four of us ordered the bacon Cesar salad pizza. The pizza was unique in that the pizza was delivered to us with the Cesar salad delivered in the center of the pizza. Unique it was, and quite tasty, although a bit greasier than I would have liked.

The service was fair. A situation occurred just before we received our bill. My wife accidentally reached behind the booth and in doing so her jacket came in contact with a fly paper pole that was laying on the window sill directly behind the booth. We could not get the stickiness out of her jacket, and we were offered no assistance from the waiter or manager. The jacket was ruined. The least that I would have expected was an offer of compensation, either in money or a free meal for her. Nothing was offered ,nor did we press the issue. How unfortunate that the lack of some kind of compensation risked losing a customer.That would have been considered common courtesy in my book.

After a long day of driving, pulling our RV and setting up in the rain, we were looking for a good hot meal in a casual restaurant, fairly close to our campground (KOA Quechee). The KOA owners recommended Fire Stones as one of their favorite places, and we weren't disappointed. The service was friendly and the food was quite good. I loved the BBQ chicken flatbread, and my husband loved the cedar-plank salmon... it was cooked on a real chuck of cedar, bark and all, instead of the slim little board that so many restaurants use. We'll go back again next time we're in the area.
