Description: With most of the original architecture intact, COBBLESTONES Restaurant offers a variety of dining and drinking options, modified for modern use. What was once the "Grand Billiard Hall" is now the main dining room. The original library has given way to a private dining room seating 20 and is adorned with twin fireplaces while the upstairs sleeping rooms have been opened up for two beautiful function rooms. The original dining room, where "the gentlemen" enjoyed a brandy and cigar is now a separate pub with a vast selection of martini's, classic American cocktails, draught beers, and a predominantly American Wine list. COBBLESTONES Restaurant cuisine combines both traditional comfort and regionally inspired American fare alongside contemporary selections. Our many steaks are hand cut and our seafood is delivered fresh daily. All soups, sauces and desserts are made fresh, "in house" every day. Please visit COBBLESTONES Restaurant where our welcoming staff carries on a tradition of excellence and hospitality. Committed to our guest's satisfaction, we will always strive to exceed your expectations!

“Fine dining in the Historic Section of Lowell”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Went for a business dinner at this interesting downtown Lowell, MA eatery (see history in last parapgraph). There is a bar area with flat panel if you want to hang out and drink or just dine solo. If you have a companion and time, there is a nice dining room with linen covered tables and some finer decor. For dinner this evening, I had the chicken marsala which is prepared nicely over a bed of fresh pasta accompanied by a glass of pinot noir. I was quite content with the meal. My colleague had the north atlantic salmon which comes with roasted garlic-sweet pepper quinoa, asparagus, charred green onion vinaigrette and added some garlic mashed - also very pleased with the quality and taste. They've been in business for 20 years - good food and service is what it's all about.

If you want more history, one of the servers gave us the scoop - the building was built somewhere around 1855-1859. It was originally believed to be the Merrimack Manufacturing Company. In 1882, it became the Yorick Gentlemen’s Club - that lasted for 78 years. It became a restaurant in 1978 and was purchased by it's current owners in 1994. It is within walking distance to The Paul E Tsongas Arena, The Lowell Memorial Auditorium, The Merrimack Repertory Theater, Boardinghouse Park and The American Textile History Museum and The National Park Visitors Center.

“Leaves no stone unturned”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

This charming Inn, restaurant and bar is a hidden treasure indeed. They food is wonderful and never a disappointment. Their mushroom flatbread is delicious and the Chicken Marcela one of the best I've ever had with really good mashed potatoes. The prices are much less than what you'd find in the greater Boston area. We go there often.

“Good food and poor execution”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

The chili and clam chowder were good, the mixed greens were good but many leaves were wilted, the main courses were good but were served just as we started eating the salad, the steak had to be returned to be cooked because we ordered it medium-rare and it was rare, and the bread was stale. The restaurant needs a manager to provide oversight to the kitchen and staff. We wouldn't go back.

“Nice place”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

I've eaten here several times and I've had more beer at the bar there then I can remember. Nice people at Cobblestones and if the weather is good you can sit outside. Since I moved away I'll miss this place

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

Cobblestones offers two types of dining experiences, a casual, fun bar and a more formal dining room. I have enjoyed both. The service is good and friendly and I have not been disappointed in the food. The short ribs are wonderful and the last time I was there two of my dining companions raved about the macaroni and cheese. The menu is varied and offers something for everyone, making Cobblestones a great place to visit when everyone wants something different.
