Would you recommend Stone Soup?

I have never been to Stone Soup and I was having trouble finding any reviews about the restaurant. I know they used to be in Ipswich and I believe they are now in Gloucester. Is it worth making a reservation? What is the menu like?

  1. Went there a couple of years ago, when they were in Ipswich, for breakfast. Had a standard omelette and home fries and toast plate, which was very good at the time. Haven't had a chance to go since, but would go back based on that experience.

    1. I can echo Bachslunch's response. Breakfast was standard but very good. The dinner menu's looked great and the place had a funky homey feel. Can't say what Gloucester location is like.

      1. I frequented SS since their first location, for both breakfast and dinner. Mark, the owner, is a very good chef. The breakfasts were always made with fresh ingredients. Dinners wre also well executed, the only thing I found to the down side was their reservation process was horrible and they would close on Fri or Sat periodically. Also,the dinner menu seldom changed and it was a bit pricey for cash only. I do believe they're still in Ipswich and the Gloucester locationb is simmer only. I haven't been in a while but, I would not hesitiate to try them.

          Thank you for your replys. I am going to make a reservation. I did not know it was cash only. Thanks for the heads up. I will be going to the restaurant for dinner. Is it BYOB as well?

          Any additional input would be appreciated. Thank you.

            It's not BYOB in Ipswich, not sure about Gloucester.

              If I recall last summer was byob in Gloucester and we had 2 excellent lunches there. They had limited availability ( hours?) for dinner and we never made it but are looking forward to it this year...and generally looking forward to summer brrrrr
