I've visited Stone's a few times and have never been disappointed with the food or the service. Their Irish pizza is good (and can be made vegetarian). I had their grilled ham & cheese and substituted sliced apples for the ham (I know it sounds...More

We have been going to Stones for 26 years. The last few times have been poor, bad service, average food. But we kept hoping it would improve. Saturday we decided to go - as we both really wanted a good Guinness. We ordered our Guinness...More

Haven't changed menu in years. Only thing good is the Burger. Lobster salad is skimpy on lobster. Price is high for Lobster. Atmosphere is good.More

Hi David, Thank you very much for the feedback. I will be looking into what may have contributed to the slow service as we take that very seriously. Though not an excuse, the 7:00 hour is the peak of business and we are constantly looking...More

Great atmosphere and waitstaff, but the menu has been the same for years. The lack of variety and high prices really diminish the place. Unfortunate. How hard can it be to add a few new dishes to switch things up and keep it fresh?
