Wow! Been to this place on several occasions, and the atmosphere is great. Iím not sold on the food...some things are very good, some not so good, but the service is very reliable and friendly. Perfect evening for me is to sit at the bar w/ the amazing beer selection, get an appetizer then go to the grotto while a classic movie is being screened. UPDATED from a visit on 1/9/11. Service sucked ass and the food has gone downhill... and it was never great. Still a great place but not the best.

This place is world class in architectural design, atmosphere, service, food, beer and events. I have no problem naming this in the top 20 best beer places on earth, probably in the top 10...or 5!! The Stone and guest tap and bottle list are fantastic and represent many great beer styles. The food is creative and tasty, esp. the talapia, duck tacos, and other goodies. The restaurant is large with big ceilings and windows looking out onto their gardens which have various sections and are well appointed. Their events range from beer dinners, beer education seminars, festivals such as a spectacular sour beer fest in July 2007. You can do brewery tours, get growlers to go (I left yesterday with some 04í Old Guardian), shop for their cool clothes and glassware, and even come in with lawn chairs to watch late night movies sometimes. A beer lovers paradise but also great for a family!

Very beautiful place, the garden will be extrodinary in a few years when it matures. Great beer selection, try the samplers so you can drink more varieties. Drank a few beers that I could not get in AZ. Food is a little pricey, and a little on the interesting side. Some things I had never heard of, but it tasted great. Our server was very friendly and pretty helpful on the beer choices.

This is a classy bar/bistro that is co-located with the brewery. The bistro is beautifully designed, with plenty of seating at the bar or at indoor and outdoor patio tables. The brewing area is viewable from any seat. There is plenty of free parking and the walk from the parking lot to the bistro is made through pleasant landscaping. At the bar, you can select from 33 taps and 86 bottled beers, including many Belgian ales and some special Stone brews. The barkeeps did not seem to know beer very well, but they were friendly, when not too busy, and tried to be helpful. There is an outstanding menu of mostly beer-oriented dishes, so arrive hungry.

Drove to the brewery when staying on the beach @ the Del Mar Motel. This place is among the best places I have been to and had beer and dinner. Highly recommended. Try all their different cheeses.. yes even the extra smelly one. Good stuff. The tofu stirfry is outstanding.

Went shortly after they opened the new location. Enjoyed a great tour, even was offered beer enriched ice cream while on our tour! Dining hall and beer garden were still under construction, so I will have to make another trip out from FL. Scored a Growler and enjoyed while in SD. Recommend!!

Itís hard to beat Stoneís new brewery restaurant. Not egotistically focusing on itís own beer, they have an extensive tap and bottle list, that is constantly changing. $2 tasters are an excellent way to boost your ratings. They frequently have aged versions of their beer on tap. The female staff, such as Chelsea, is beautiful. The food is also eeexcellent, but pricey, so I order from the childrenís menu. Can I say more?

This is probably the coolest brewery and restaurant Iíve been to in a long long time. The gardens are nice and the restaurant floor opens up to them with great big bay doors. We sat on the cusp of outside to inside where there was a light breeze and plenty of shade. Nice seats. The bar area is super cool with a full view of the new brewing facility. Outstanding tap list with nothing but craft brews. Solid bottle list as well. Food was unique and while I did not love everything, I enjoyed the whole food experience. Itís probably lucky I donít live near here or Iíd never leave this place.

Good atmosphere with the stone theme and gardens. Great selection of good beer. They donít serve anything that isnít craft. A very decent bottle list. Friendly knowledgeable staff. They usually have some rare brews on tap. A must visit if your in the area.

This place was awesome. I have lived in the area for four years and really regret not going there earlier. The brewery is beautiful and it would make a great place to go and have not only a couple beers but dinner as well... If your in the area it is a must that you go check it out.
