Steak on a Stone is an inventive idea on how to cook proteins. In ancient history cooking on a heated stone was used on daily basis and at this restaurant you can "travel back in time" and have a unique dinning experience.
Food---This restaurant is like no place I have ever eaten. You order your entree and the protein will come out raw and you get to cook it yourself on a volcanic stone that is 750 degrees. They have everything from steaks, seafood, chicken and lamb that all can be cooked on the heated stone. I ordered the lamb chops and and my girlfriend ordered a sirloin steak. Both proteins cooked amazingly well on the stone. The key is to cut thin slices of meat and give it a good quick sear on the outside. After about a minute you flip it over and sear the other side. What this does is it traps in the moisture while the meat quickly cooks and the inside remains melt in your mouth tender. This also allows each and every bite you have to taste like it was your first bite. If cooking on the stone isn't your thing you can order off the regular menu where they cook it for you, but where is the fun in that! The meal comes with a salad and bread in addition to the side and choice of 3 sauces for your protein. The salad dressing was homemade and very very tasty! I absolutely loved the food at Steak on a Stone and I recommend you go outside of the box and try it! 5/5
Drinks---They mostly have your standard bud light and miller lite type beers. They did have Samuel Adams Summer Ale and a Great Lakes on draft but if you are looking for a vast selection of beer this is not the place. The wine list was just OK but my lady did enjoy her red wine. If you were looking for a vodka or gin and tonic they also have a stocked liquor selection as well. To me having a good quality Craftbeer or glass of wine is a must with a good protein and I hope that Steak on a Stone widens their selection of Craftbeer in the future. 2.75/5
Overall---This place is all about the food. Cooking your own food on a stone might not be some people's idea of a quality dinner, but please don't pass judgment until you try it. It was honestly one of the most fun dinner experiences I have had, and the food was great! Our service was quick and friendly. The restaurant decor is also very nice. The main dinning area has high ceilings which makes you feel like you are in a big restaurant. There are also seats available in the bar area. Call ahead for a reservation because if they are busy you might have to wait a little while for a table. You will see me back at Steak on a Stone! 4.5/5
