Went at 5 pm Mother’s Day and it was between the brunch and dinner craziness and was perfect. My son and I had the lobster special- it was delicious. He commented he was impressed at how well it was prepared given it’s not a regular menu feature. Others in our party had the fish tacos and the shrimp & grits and both thought they were very good as well. Loved that they offer Happy Hour specials on weekends (even Mother’s Day!). We had two HH apps to share and I enjoyed their version of a Moscow Mule - all at HH prices! Very nice - everyone enjoyed our Mother’s Day dinner. Thank you!

I love the fact that you could get tacos with a lettuce wrap instead of a flour tortilla. Great for those watching gluten. The service was a bit confusing there were a lot of servers but we really weren’t sure who was assigned us but we got it straightened out.

Love this place. One of the coolest dining experiences. Sitting at the bar watching the kitchen team work was super cool. The food did not disappoint. I have a gluten allergy, and the have a special menu. It doesn’t included all the amazing flat breads they have, which was a bummer. I had the wings for my appetizer and they were excellent. The portion was perfect. The wings tasted great and were huge. The 4 sauces that went with them were unreal. I then had fish tacos for dinner but they had lettuce wraps for “shells”. It was a mess to eat, but tasted great.
Prices were super reasonable. Service and teamwork on that front was fantastic.

We recently celebrated an office mate's birthday at Stone's Cove. I had been there before but not with this mixed group. Although the food is very good, as is the service, I find the lack of low top tables problematic. I understand that, because it's a kitbar, the high tops enhance the ability to see into the kitchen/prep area. But it is problematic and uncomfortable for short people, and for some older and mobility challenged people. There are low tops available, but very few.

Neither one of us liked what we ordered. I will never go back. The food is awful. I did order one of their Flat breads (Chicken parm) and only had a small piece of it. Quality of the meat (chicken) was pretty bad. My husband did not like his meal either.

Four of us stopped by for lunch and loved everything from beginning to end. Service is fabulous, food was terrific (we had Fish Tacos and the Key Lime Pie Luv Cones for dessert), and enjoyed watching all the meals being prepared. Server chefs (yes, they do both) were willing to explain what the different dishes going by were called so we could find them on the menu. I highly recommend Stone’s Cove KitBar.

This eatery is unique, more bar space than tables— huge fancy marble top bar that takes up some 70% of its space (and the restaurant is large, very nice)

This is a high energy hip place, noisy but tolerable.

The food is DELICIOUS! I wanted to lick the plate clean ;-)
Had the crab cake appetizer and salmon main entree... heavenly!

I will become a regular.

We had a great time at Stone's Cove. Though busy, we were seated quickly at our favorite table. We've come to know several of the servers and many stopped by to say hi, even though they weren't working our section. Flat bread (chicken parm) was good as ever. I tried the cobb salad for the first time. It was different (all ingredients mixed together), but I enjoyed it that way. Hubby's burger was a hit as always. The new chocolate cake dessert is AMAZING and could feed a family of 4 easily, it's that big.

A friend and I have been to Stone's Cove KitBar three times in the past year or so. The first time the service was quite attentive and the food was excellent. The second time the food was good, but the service was not good. This last time, neither the food nor the service was good. The exception is the Hot and Cold Dips, which was still tasty. The Mackinac Flatbread was weak and not very flavorful. The beef sliders were okay. The S'mores Flatbread was overcooked. Service started out slow and never improved. We had to keep flagging down a server to replenish water (Hate that - pay attention!) even though the restaurant wasn't that busy on a dreary Saturday afternoon. We were very disappointed in the experience this time - and we'll debate whether there will be a next time.

Service was efficient and attentive, but for my 2nd consecutive visit, a food item wasn’t prepared well.

A quibble; the Kit tots with my burger weren’t fried either hot enough or long enough - they weren’t crunchy outside, and arrived lukewarm at the table.

Otherwise, the Meatloaf cupcakes, my friend’s salad and my burger were all great.

Responded on 25 February 2019

To whom it may concern, Thank you for choosing to dine with us and we are glad to hear you enjoyed the meatloaf, salad, and burger! We truly apologize our food was not up to par with your liking. As far as our Kit ots go, we do not have fryers in house and bake our Kittots causing them to not be as crunchy but also not greasy. Next time you can certainly request they be baked longer to give them more of a crunchy shell. We hope to see you back in the again Kitbar shortly. -Stone's Cove Staff

Our server was a little distracted and slow to respond.

There was a hair in my salad and I reported it (found it near the end of the meal), specifically requesting that the salad not be comped.

However, a manager should have been summoned to confirm my complaint was registered.

In short, a bit more attention to detail and responsiveness is required for STKB to continue to thrive.

Chicken tacos were great. Not a great spot for a romantic dinner based on most seating being at a huge table that circles the kitchen which means you’ll usually sit next to your date. Very reasonable prices.

Bellwood, Thank you for your review! Yes, the KitBar creates a communal seating area around the kitchen, allowing the guests to be in the middle of all of the action. This allows us to create a unique environment compared to other traditional restaurants. We hope to see you back in the KitBar shortly! -Stone's Cove Staff & Management
