Nice place...close to home and work. 2sp started to brew their own beers and the variety of the brews they carry seems to have suffered. No gose, unfortunately. TypiCal bar food, but some standouts. The service is great with very friendly staff.

Nice neighborhood bar/restaurant with excellent beer selection and great food. Beer menu is quite extensive. Also had a randall, for weekend events. Part of a strip mall, so look closely for it.

I've been coming to this place pretty much since it opened. The food is amazing and the beer selection usually has something rare/special. I wish the owner could buy the Subway that's attached to it so 2SP could have more room. My only complaint would be the prices; some of the food and 12oz pours are on the expensive side but it's almost always high quality.

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!!!

It's hard to decide what is best about this place. The excellent, rotating, beer supply would likely be the first thing you notice. And, that would be a good choice since they do it better than any other place I've seen in Delaware. You should also note how friendly and knowledgeable the staff is toward everyone. They're always willing to talk about the beers (and what they like and don't like) about each one. Then... the food, which is just outstanding! Tuesday Taco Madness is my personal favorite, but Sunday Brunch is also a highlight. The chef is a genius. The atmosphere is low key and friendly to all, but not really a place I'd bring the family for burgers. Not that it would be a problem, but it's a bar's bar. Frankly, there's nothing NOT to love about this place. I'd like to build one in my backyard.

This is a nice bar that is centered on their great beer selections. The staff knows their beer, are very friendly, and always have made good selections when I have asked. They are also quick in giving out samples of beers on-tap. As far as selection goes in northern Delaware, I have not found better in the area. I have enjoyed all the food that I have here and feel the quality is pretty much worth the price. The only issue with Two Stone is that they can be a little on the pricey side, but I still feel that it is worth treating your to a lunch or dinner their.
