Stopped in on a Saturday for lunch. Empty when I got there, but slowly filled as we ate our food. Lots of beer signs and Buddhas around for decoration, but the place is not all that different from the former Irish pub that was there. The beer selection is great with a great cross section of national and local favorites. I know that they do a good business and the beer menu turns over quite frequently. I had two beers while there- first the cask selection, an Evolution ESB. Good temp and very nice to start at 5%. The second beer was a Victory Headwater Ale, for me one of the best lower alcohol beer out there. Hoppy and smooth, perfect for my Bleu Cheese burger with sweet potato fries. The server was good; he was there but all over us and the timing was good for both my kids food and for the adults. Great selection of food that was as different as you might want to get- burgers and fries but also tacos and interesting soups and salads. The prices were fair but not great. The cask was 7 dollars but the Headwater was around 4 if I am not mistaken. Burger was 9 bucks and I loved it. Some might balk at the prices, but I am happy to have a place that cares about good beer and good food so close to my house. Not an everyday place for us but one that will definitely but getting my business in the future.

Quickly becoming the talk of the town, this gastropub generates a lot of buzz which everyone "must try". Although the narrow rectangle of a room has a low-lit cozy atmosphere, the volume of people and noise can get quite high at times. On first glance, the menu looks reasonably priced, but quickly adds up to quite a sum if you're there for appetizers, dinner, beers, and dessert with a sampler's ambition. Servers are well educated on the menu and brews, aiming to please. The cheese platter is a ritzy experience, dinner is above par for a pub, and craft brews are refreshing. 2SP's Bread pudding with caramel and icecream was one of the best I'd ever eaten. For me it's a place to go for a special night out, but would quickly hit the credit limit if frequented.

All Hail Two Stones!!! I have to admit out of all three locations, I have only been to the Newark spot, but hundred's of times. The things I don't like are beyond managements control. Parking: Parking lot's only so big. Prices: good food, beer costs money. Seating: It's popular, people!
Food: I've never had a bad meal here. I work multiple shifts so I have experienced the main hours full food menu and the (after hours fried menu) fries, chicken wings and such.
Service: Awesome friendly service, you get to know them and they remember you. Show respect and thank your server. Prompt and will never leave your glass empty.
Beers: Selection rotates mid-monthly. If your unsure of your selection, ask for a sample.
One last note: The Price keeps out the riff-raff. I've never seen a fight take place here.
Come here and ENJOY!!!
