      Good riddance? I thought Cobblestone was the best diner in Eatontown. Matzoh ball soup great, rings good, sandwiches never disappointed.

        "Best Diner in Eatontown" lol

        Well to my knowledge its only 1 of 2 diners in Eatontown, the other being The All Seasons. So it's not as if it had to beat out dozens of competitors to earn that title. That being besides the point, I personally prefer the All Seasons and Americana to the Cobblestone. Breakfasts always "bland" (omelette's) and dinner entrees I would best compare to hospital food, no joke. I've never really had many sandwiches there so I can't fairly comment.

        The last meal I had there was after Sandy, they were open post storm, and one of a few places that were. Anxious for a "home cooked" meal, I went and waited for a table. Thankful for a warm cup of coffee, lights, heat etc, I ordered pot roast, comfort food for going back to a dark cold home.

        The pot roast was so tough, with a tin can tasting luke warm gravy, and out of the box mashed potato's.

        I was so disappointed and disgusted, the next night I chose to eat a meal out of a room temperature tin can, in the cold and dark, rather than go back. That was my last of many dismal meals there.

          Well, I'm including anything close by. :) The Americana is very good, but I always liked Cobblestone better. I've never been impressed with the All Seasons, nor the 4 Seasons before it. And the absolute worst is the one about a mile south of the mall, Blue Swan I think. It had absolutely no redeeming qualities.

          Caveat, I haven't been to any of them since a few months before Irene, so my comments are based on at least two year old memories.

            What kinda things do you usually get at a diner? To me they all seem kinda the same...

              Just FYI Joon this place has closed.

                Just as well. Never saw a market for grilled stones anyway...

    2. Same owners thinking they can change the name and the money will start rolling in. One of the owners sons is supposed to be running this "new" restaurant. If the owners remain in the kitchen or better yet-stay home, it might have a shot.

      1. Passed by last night the Stone & Sea is gone closed up for lease sign outside.

          As soon as I saw this thread renewed I was wondering who was reviewing it, I haven't seen a car in the parking lot since they re-opened.
