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

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.

Alvah Stone is in a really lovely setting. I'd eyed this restaurant some years ago when visiting the cafe on the other end of the mill. It was then called The Night Kitchen, but Alvah Stone is in the same place and the same lovely...More

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.
