Last year's winner of Best Restaurant for Outdoor Dining will be sorely missed this spring.
Stone's of Stillwater was beloved for its Skyy-Bacardi-Sapphire Stillwater Ice Teas, its crowd-pleasing American fare, and beautifally landscaped terrace decorated with limestone, flowers, prairie grasses, and--of course--enormous stones (in case you forgot where you were). We really hope their private cabanas will be reopened by spring.
Here's what their website reports:
It is with great sadness that we must close our doors.
We thank you, our customers, for your patronage, encouragement, and faithfulness. We don't know yet what the future holds for Stone's, but we're doing our best to make sure we're not dark for long.
A special thanks goes to our staff, many of which helped to open the restaurant two and a half years ago. They are the reason Stone's has been such a great place. We are grateful for them and for the opportunity we had to serve you.
Please make sure to visit the other great restaurants and bars in downtown Stillwater.
