This is a fantastic facility that you can bring anyone to: even a girl who doesnít drink and a roommate who would never drive from LA to Escondido just to drink. I did both at once and it went over like gangbusters. The selection isnít what I hoped for the particular weekend I went, but was still better than Iíve seen since the Map Room. I would drive here every weekend if I could and stay the night. Just fantastic.

I live not too far from this place, so its an easy trip from Carlsbad to San Marcos for any of Stoneís special beer events. By far the most amazing decor and ambiance Iíve seen in a big brewery / restaurant. The gardens are a relaxing location to sip and contemplate brews with friends. Food, however, is way too overpriced for the quality you get. Go here for the beer, not the grub. Huge bar with a vast tap selection is quite impressive, with lots of import and local bottles too. You can usually find some nice vintage Stone beers as well, such as Old Guardian and various oak-aged beers. Double Bastard night is a must every year, and I hear their Winter Storm event is quite a rave too.

Stone World Bistro and Gardens is a truly amazing place, aesthetically. The beer selection is usually incredible. The food is a mixed bag. Some things on the menu are incredible, otherís are just ok. Service is usually pretty good. I have found that I enjoy the appetizers more than the food from the regular menu. Try to get a table by the fire pit. The garden area is really nice, especially on a summer night.

this was a very cool place. Only have one bad thing to say about my experiance here. I ordered a beer, it came in a brandy snifter, my buddy ordered the exact same beer anout 10 minutes later and his came in a session glass at least twice the size! The waitress said it was a different bartender, that was the only explanation I got.

It seems amazing that after all the time Iíve been to Stone this is the first time I sat down to write a review. Of course this is the first time I ate in the Beer Garden so maybe Iíve had an excuse. WOW! What a nice place. The architecture of this place is amazing, light and airy and very modern looking. Wonder if its won any awards, it should. Sat just inside by the window so I was kind of outside as well. The food was amazing and they have an amazing beer list both on tap and bottles. Top end and eclectic menu, with items like wild duck tacos and buffalo burgers and the norm. That said its not cheap, but it is well within the price range for comparable food and dťcor elsewhere, perhaps even on the low end. Well worth the trip. I did go on the tour last time I was there, before the garden opened and it is also well worth the time.

Beautiful place. 20 taps or so including 5 years of double bastrd. Was hoping for something special on tap from Stone but nothing. Nice bottle list. Decor & outside beer garden is top notch. Food was pretty good also. BBQ Duck tacos were great. Must stop when in San Diego

I just returned from an unforgettable trip to the San Diego area. Our first stop was Stone which I was looking forward to for months. It is a bit hard to find but when you drive up, it looks amazing. Walking in itís truly a beautiful site. You can sit in the bar and look at the brewery through the glass. The atmosphere is A+. The tap selection was large but some of Stoneís truly arrogant beer was not available. The wait staff was somewhat knowledgeable but as a brewer not as knowledgeable as I hoped. The food was disappointing for the prices. We were waiting on an appetizer and missed the start of the brewery tour. We asked if we could join 5 minutes late and explained it was due to waiting for the appetizer but was denied. We saw some beers being offered at the tasting room that were not offered in the bar. We requested some samples but were told no. The beer was only for take out. We indicated, we donít have a fridge or a place to keep a growler but we were ignored. I love Stoneís beer but I donít think I will go back. I felt I was a burden instead of a child in a candy store which is the feeling Iím used to feeling when attending breweries.

Quite an amazing decor in this place...nice tap selection with many guest brews. Also a decent bottle list - we ordered a Speedway for our table. Food a bit pricey, I think the burger was about 17 bucks. Go for the beer and the scenery. Def worth a visit.

This place is beautiful. Loved the interior and the garden and landscaping in the back is something else. I have never been to a more spectacular brewery in my life. The tap selection was good though I had hoped they would have some Stone specialty brews on tap. The food was ok, I think we just happened to get a burnt plate of union rings, since most of the other reviews love them. Service was ok. I will say that it doesnít have a very warn feeling to it. They are getting bigger and with that the place doesnít have the personal touch.

A fantastic place! Huge inside that is very spacious. Has these big garage-door looking things that open up one whole side of the restaruant to the outside, where they have a very nice, clean patio that overlooks this large, enclosed, park-like space with benches and walking path, all just for the restaruant. The food was interesting, definitely different from the standard brewpub fare but not scarry strange or anything. I had the macarroni and cheese, and it was great! The draft beer selection was very good, with both good stone selections and lots of nice regional and national selections. The list was solid, with some interesting limited brews as well. The bottle list, though somewhat small, was almost entirely eyebrow raising stuff, but I hardly looked past the draft list while I was there. The staff seemed friendly and fairly knowledgeable. Definitely worth a trip to this great place, although take note that it is rather hard to find, and not currently on mapquest, googlemaps, etc. Get the map off of the stone website before you go.
