Sooo...Stoddard's?

After all the delays in its opening, Stoddard's has presumably opened. But the last words I could find on this board were posted around the time of the opening, two months ago. Has anyone actually been lately? I am curious.

  1. it has not officially opened yet, although they keep saying "next week" or "in two weeks" (and have been doing so for months now)

    1. I was not open when I walked by a couple of nights ago. It may never open.

        I walked by last Weds afternoon and there was plenty of Construction going on. Hopefully the fully open soon. I know there have been at least one soft event, but that seems a while ago.

          Did they have scaffolding up so that they could fix the old scaffolding? (Sorry, I couldn't resist.)

            I think there was scaffolding? I'm positive I saw two table saws working.

              Were the table saws cutting lemons and limes? If not, sounds like it will still be a little bit.

                They did friends and family last weekend and are opening this weekend.

                I saw the table saws on the sidewalk too..maybe 2 weeks ago? No lemons or limes.:)I figured they were days away; but obviously not. Really did look like "finish work." Does look nice, through the doorway..:)

                1. re: Smokee

                  I think I saw one of the tables saws accidentally cut a hole in time creating an endless loop of the pre-opening phase.

              1. the bar (with a limited bar menu) was open last night, but all the tabs were being handwritten (19th century style, in keeping with their decor) good hefty juicy burger tho pricey ~ $16. fries ordinary. 1 cask ale (a 21 IPA) ~ $5. very cool interior (still some work pending). waiting for the full menu (and full cask list, and billing systems) to come on line...

                  It sure would be nice to have a place with a great beer menu in the downtown area.

                2. My husband went with some friends on Saturday night -- April 3rd. Didn't ask about food, but enjoyed some beers and liked it a lot. So its at least partially open.
