The Stones Common House & Kitchen burst onto the scene just a few months ago, and helps to bridge the gap between downtown’s fine dining establishments and the neighborhood eateries specializing in comfort foods. Located in the heart of Stoneham, this place is flexible enough to accommodate a business lunch, a family dinner, or a romantic Saturday night drink.
Open from Tuesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner, The Stones has a welcoming bar area that’s popular with the happy hour crowd. Pair a craft beer with an order of glazed chicken wings, or share a plate of nachos with friends. There's also a dining room for a more formal, though not stuffy, dining experience (regulars recommend the house-made sausage, with roasted potatoes on the side). Insider tip: the dining room can get pretty busy, so it’s best to call ahead for a reservation during peak times.
