My family stopped in to the book mill to browse on a rainy day. We happened to find the Alvah Stone and were pleasantly surprised. There is another restaurant on site and it looks super cozy and friendly but The Alvah Stone seemed more relaxed...More

My sister-in-law had a great meal here on her previous visit and wanted to take us there. We went on a Sunday and arrived about 15-20 minutes before brunch ended so perhaps it was not the best time. My brother-in-law got a glass of white...More

For anyone seeking a truly memorable and delicious culinary experience, I'd strongly recommend planning a trip to the Alvah Stone ASAP. I have eaten here 6-8 times and each meal is somehow better than the previous. Growing up in Philadelphia and currently living in NYC...More

We love Alvah Stone for it's interesting and well-done food offerings. The honey butter brown sugar grilled cornbread - OMG - and we are vegetarian so no bacon. Can't even imagine the bacon aspect but if that's your thing then this is also your thing!!!!...More

I had lunch here yesterday 7/18 and I've never had a finer dining experience. The setting, of course, is lovely...an open deck overlooking the rippling Sawmill River. Our server, Deidre, was a delight...friendly and welcoming, knowledgable about the menu and the history of the Bookmill...More

The deck overlooking the Sawmill River is wonderful, in either cool or warm weather, and the service on our visit was cheerful and helpful. Be ready to choose a sheltered table if too sunny, or eat inside (also pleasant). Menu is modet, drinks are creative.

This is a very nice restaurant, although there is an outdoor deck where people eat in fair weather, so I wouldn't expect it to be a place where you could bring a pet.
