Man... I find it difficult speaking ill of Stone, but the last few experiences pushed me over the edge.

Staff- I get the whole "arrogant bastard" marketing vibe of Stone, but arrogant, snobby 18 year old hostesses, waiters, and waitresses is enough for me to not drive the extra 20 miles, and stop short at Pizza Port where I'll spend half the money for double the food and drink.

Food- You get a little food, for a lot of money. Some dishes are better than others, the buffalo burger is great, tempeh shepherd's pie was delicious, but most of the entrees fall flat, and the portions are tiny. Not worth the money, and certainly not worth the drive.

Beer- This is the only reason I would ever stop here again. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Stone fan, this isn't a critique of the brand, but the bistro. They have a huge bottle offering, great tap selection, and they often tap aged, and variations of their beers. You cant beat this beer selection

Did I mention how obnoxious the hostesses are?

The facility is gorgeous, they've got a great tour, and the garden is beautiful. I would encourage every Stone fan to make their pilgrimage and pay their respects to the gods, but I personally don't see myself making a 40 mile drive to Escondido anytime soon.
