I would say that this place probably makes itís money from the after-work crowd. Itís not too far from the corporate park and this place doesnít strike me as the kind of place to "pack it in" on the weekends (although maybe thatís just the nature of any bar in Schaumburg - not meant as an offense to the city, but Iíll stand by it). Iíve always been happy with the music selection of mostly alt rockers at a low enough volume to keep conversation lively, but loud enough for Shazam to work if you hear something you like, but donít know. The service is quick - youíll never go long without a drink - but as far as beer knowledge ... the food menuís limited, but whatís on there is good. The beer menu isnít too bad, they have a few rotating taps and bottles, but nothing impressive. Itís a nice go-to place if you work in the area and are looking for a place to grab a few drinks with coworkers and friends.

When I first started going to Stonewood Ale House a few years ago, they surprised me with some unique beers such as Youngís Double Chocolate Stout and Spaten Optimator. They have since dropped all of the beers that I like.
The food is pretty good, but without the beer selection there is no reason for me to come here.
The servers are a bunch of cute girls that generally donít seem to know what they are doing. The service ranges from OK to glacially slow in my experience.
I like the look of the place with lots of wood and classic beer signs reminding you of beers they donít serve.
I used to bring my coworkers to this place, but now I donít bother to go at all.

Quaint little resteraunt & bar. Very clean. Prices were reasonable and food was delicious. Nothing rare on the list ofr beer, but a nice selection of domestic and imported bottles. Food was very good, service was fantastic. They have a brew with there name on it but it would seem to be a labled contract brew from someone else. Iíd go back.
