Just returned from a birthday party at Stonefire. I had read some unfavorable reviews so I asked a lot of questions before agreeing to go there. There were 20+ in our party and we were served well by two waitresses, had no problems with any of our food. Our guests ranged from 9 mo to 80 years including 2 toddlers and a few teens. Everyone seemed satisfied. Would I have a party there again, you bet!

We went to Stonefire Restaurant and Pub shortly after it opened in 2006, and I was extremely disappointed and vowed never to return. However, I craved a good hamburger, and there are supposedly new owners, and times change?so I thought to give them one more shot in February, 2009.

And I am again vowing never to return! We went on a Friday, February 13th and were unfortunately limited to selections from a special Valentine??s weekend menu. There weren??t any burgers at this pub, and the lowest priced entre was $13.95, not the family fare this family sought on a Friday night.

Foolishly I stayed, as we should have only ordered a glass of house wine and then left. I remember from a few years ago they didn??t offer anything but four house wines, and I guess that hasn??t changed. Instead I ordered a Harp Lager from a decent-sized beer list, but the server didn??t know if they had Harp available, so she suggested O??Doul??s non-alcoholic beer. That was a warning sign, indicating to me she had no idea what Harp was, and more likely, that it was rarely requested.

Overall, the service was acceptable but the food nothing special and vastly overpriced. The bread basket was artistically presented and the best part of my dinner. I had the tough, overcooked and definitely not succulent honey-glazed salmon at $17.95. I like to use a measure which I dubbed ??the Birds-Eye test.? I am always troubled by restaurants that charge over $12 per entre and then serve unappetizing frozen vegetables with poor presentation, looking like they came right from the bag. These vegetables should be permitted to be served only at local diners and less-frequented restaurants in golf clubhouses but should never be served in seemingly higher-end establishments. I get the feeling there isn??t a true chef in the kitchen that can slice and cook a fresh vegetable.

Stonefire??s standard fare kids menu selections were priced at $5.95. I think that??s in line with other restaurants. The strawberry ice cream with sprinkles and whipped cream looked and tasted delicious. I wish I were a kid again, since, as an adult, I have no reason to return here.

Something else that really bugs me is fake ??reviews? by local media, namely newspapers. A restaurant that purchases any advertising around here receives a glowing ??review? about how fantastic the food is, and then the duped public believes the restaurant is really good. Stonefire received attention for that reason when it first opened, as did other local restaurants like Nick & Pat??s Bistro, and Vito and Nick??s II. I will never set foot in any of these again because each is below average in value, and in the cases of Stonefire and Nick & Pat??s, below average in taste as well. To avoid the ??I??ve been ripped off? feeling, there are better comparably-priced or lesser priced alternatives to recommend near Stonefire, including Amici??s; Blackstone; Maciano??s; and even Sunfield??s.

We have only been to Stonefire once, but it was a great experience. I had the Honey-Glazed Chicken and it was fabulous. My husband had the pork chops and he said they were great. The strawberry spinach salad was great.

This is a very busy place, especially on the weekends.
