“Who would think in the middle of nowhere there was such a place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2013

We were given some verbal directions on how to get there. You drive through the beautiful country side and all of a sudden we discovered a field with over 50 cars in the field. Place your order and they were honest about how long it would take. We waited ~60 minutes for our pizza. They serve beer and wine and waiting was fine. You can explore their herb garden and the antqiue store while waiting. Next time I would bring bocce ball or some cards to pass the time. Other places in the area like this do provide some diversion during this waiting time.
We ordered the Thai Chicken Pizza. It was delightful. All four of us really enjoyed it.
Their hours are limited. Only on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. I think this place will become a yearly summer ritual.

“Great pizza and beautiful country setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

Pulled up on a Friday night at 4:55 at the same time as 100 other people, wait on a short line to order pizza and beverages and then go pick a table outside on a beautiful patio that has a breathtaking view of the country, a great fresh herb garden and a great stone barn. The pizza was delivered quickly and it was delicious, now I Know why 100 people were all coming at 5pm when they open. A great little find in the middle of the countryside.

“Fabulous pizza and setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2013

The Stone Barn is simply a fabulous experience. They sell pizza, ice cream and drinks, all at a very reasonable price. The pizza is outstanding and the wine and beer selection are quite good for a pizza place. However, the real treat is the ambience. The restaurant is in a rustic cooley with a beautiful view. The service is fantastic. The wait for food is often long but that is because so many people go there. Given the load they move a quickly as humanly possible. The wait staff deserves kudos for being so hard working. To top it off, the drive there is absolutely spectacular through some of the most beautiful country side anywhere. It takes an effort to get there but it is well worth it. One bit of advice--get 1 pizza per 2 adults even though they look large. The crust is very thin and toppings are perfect.

“OMG Its GOOD!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

Love pizza? Love eating outdoors? You should not miss this place. The best pizza I ever had anywhere in the world. All made to order and baked in a wood fired oven.
Sitting outside by the herb garden adds to the ambiance. I cannot say enough just how good this busy little gem of a place is.
