Life Tastes Better Here: The Stones Throw Tavern & Grill
The Stones Throw Tavern and Grill is a pot of gold that didn’t depend on luck in order to make their restaurant successful. Their hard working staff, quality food, and loyal customers have allowed them to strike it rich! They truly live up to their motto: No strangers here only, friends that you have yet to meet!
The Bowling Green tavern is one of the largest establishments in town with not one, but two full size bars. Both areas resemble the Irish culture with one side carrying out a traditional pub feel and the other taking on a modern vibe with new age décor. Even though there are distinct differences between the bars the entire interior of the restaurant was custom designed using local businesses. Everything from the copper bar counters, to the whiskey barrel stave table tops, the entire design embraces a true Irish Pub atmosphere.
No matter what bar you decide to pull up a chair at, the quality of the food will be remarkable. The taverns menu reflects traditional Irish dishes of bangers and mash, shepherd’s pie, and scotch eggs but some items go a bit further adding a twist of American taste. The grills daily handmade pasties can be ordered as “classic” with beef, potatoes, and carrots or “American” style with chicken, bacon and ranch. Whichever filling you choose it will still be wrapped inside the iconic flaky pastry dough.
The flavor rich food goes a long way because of how it is prepared and the local ties. The meat is purchased from Belleville Brothers Market just “a stone’s throw away” from the restaurant, and the fresh fruits and vegetables are provided by Vinchar local produce.
The Stones Throw entertains with both food and events. on Saturday’s people can listen to live music from local musicians, three nights a week they have trivia challenge, and on Wednesday’s the bar holds their Hump Day Review with a community stage featuring local talent.
