                                                              Great little place right in the heart of Dogtown. This place isn't fancy by any stretch but it's nice and it has a good vibe about it. They have a huge selection of all your favorite Spirits and a good variety of Beer on tap. Their cocktail menu has some great suggestions, the smoked Old Fashioned was excellent. My Wife had the Pork Tenderloin special and I had the Mango Habanero wings, they were both very flavorful. Good place.

Entrees (brisket dip and salmon) were generously sized and perfectly prepared. Very good service. And we finally broke down and tried the turtle pie. Omg. The rare restaurant dessert worth it in every way. We are fans!

Enjoyed the steak au poivre -- cooked to perfection. Their calamari was a great addition. A good value ans excellent service.

Our server was top-notch; perfect timing, helpful with the menu, friendly-just perfect! Food was delicious! Some of our choices were brisket dip, salmon, pork chop, steak. Everyone was pleased with the food. I got kudos for picking such a perfect place😄. We will keep Stone Turtle at the top of our list for evening out.

                                                              Last minute Easter reservations were needed but the place was crazy busy at all. Really enjoyed the bar area and absolutely loved the Smoked Old Fashioned that they had. Food was great and the service was very accommodating. Most definitely would like to come back and try again.. However would like to see a chicken dish on the menu..

                                                              The pork chop, salmon, fish and chips, and brisket sandwich on ciabatta were phenomenal. The flavors in the specialty cocktail Ginger Derby were muddled and the drink was murky. The interesting ice cube dweller in my friend's Manhattan was a nice touch, though. The side that came with the brisket was called "frites" but was not frites - they were thick, kinda soggy, almost-coated fries. I wouldn't return to Stone Turtle for those, but I'll definitely go back for that brisket sandwich!

                                                              First visit to Stone Turtle but certainly not the last. Great service! Very attentive, but let you enjoy your meal too. Answered questions about the menu and made recommendations when asked. Great selection of drinks. Our server gave us a sample of their bourbon. While I and not an expert I definitely know that was great bourbon. Several great choices for appetizers too. The fondue board provided a nice selection of items and the Gruyere cheese was very flavorful. The entrees were outstanding. Our table had steak, pork, and fish and everyone was very pleased with their choice. Dessert. Turtle pie!! They have other great servings, but do not pass this up.

Food was delicious and prices were good. We had brunch. The pressed coffee with Bourbon creme was to die for. I want to return just for another cup. I will definitely be back.

                                                              Went for the dinner menu although I really wanted to try brunch. The calamari was delicious but a bit on the spicy side as there were peppers in the salad portion of the appetizer. The flavors were awesome! I got the pork chop and my husband got the steak, neither of us were all that impressed with the meats. Not a whole lot of flavor and way too much pepper! We ended up switching plates. The broccolini was covered in pepper as well and couldnt be eaten. I really enjoyed the brussel sprouts. I probably wont go back for dinner but willing to try brunch.
