My experience at The Stone Terrace by John Henry was to say the least, disappointing. Having been at the original John Henry's in Chambersburg, we had high expectations of great food and ambiance to enjoy a quality, quiet dining experience while celebrating my wife's birthday.

Upon arrival at The Stone Terrace, we had problems fining the entry door. there were several doors marked "Entrance", but it took us three tri to get the correct one. Once inside, we announced our reservation, we were quickly seated in the bar? This was quite unexpected and rather than cause a fuss, we took our seats.

Well, we had a splendid view of the bar patron's back sides, backs of their heads and the Ladies Room entrance. Yippee. We were also subjected tot he chatter normally found in a tavern rather than a fine dining establishment. The lighting was extremely dim, so much so that we had a difficult time reading the fine print menus handed to us.

Our server, Jenna was the bright spot to our experience at The Stone Terrace. Jenna was attentive, quick to respond to our needs and very professional. Her attitude was warming and welcoming with a friendly smile and presentation. She catered to us with a genuine interest in earing a good tip with out going "over the top". Jenna earned every penny of her tip. If you go, ask for one of her tables. You won't be disappointed.

The food. Again, having been to the actual John Henry's, our expectations for the food were quite high. The Stone Terrace has some work to do to reach that level in my opinion. I had the Crab Cakes, which had more breading than I remember having at John Henry's. As it happened, the market price on crab went up that day and we were warned that the menu price had increased. I wasn't concerned as I had my expectations and felt it would be worth it. I was wrong.

when you put everything into perspective, The Stone Terrace failed to earn our repeat business for any visit any time soon.

Dinner was delicious. I had the Chilean Sea Bass encrusted with pistachios. My husband had pasta with lump crab meat. Both were very good. Our server Rob was fantastic & very attentive. We ate outside it was comfortable & had nice background music.

Very good long present family owned neighborhood bar, restaurant, and party center. Service is friendly and waiters hard working. Food is very good but very good in a catering hall sense. It’s not gourmet, contemporary, or artfully prepared but portion sizes are generous and food is solid.

We enjoyed our dinner, as always, good quality of food and enjoyed celebrating our anniversary. My only complaint was that I ordered a "decaf" coffee and I think I was given a regular coffee because I was unable to fall asleep until 4 a.m. and it had to be from the coffee. I'm sure it was an honest mistake.

Mother’s Day lunch (4 course prix fixe menu). Too many tables assigned to server. She was very nice but overwhelmed. Support staff not attentive. I had an empty glass of water for over an hour. Wait between salad and main course just as long. Server did comp a couple of drinks which showed good customer service. Because of her I’m rating better than 1 star overall experience.

I went with my husband. I had the chicken Parmesan which was delicious. The sauce was great. My husband had fish and chips which he enjoyed thoroughly. We split a Caesar salad which was fresh and very good. The portion sizes are huge and I had enough left over for another meal. The bread was a ciabatta bread that you could dip in oil which was great as well. The waitress was very attentive and we will be going back again!

We originally made a reservation for a table in the bar area. This did not occur. Al, the receptionist, indicated we should have called by 4 pm of the date of the reservation. We did not know about the early phone call at the time on the online reservation.

Al seated us in the dining in the room behind the bar area. We did request at the time if we could move to the bar area. Thus sun was very bright in the dining room area. We did move the table to avoid some of the sunlight. It was fine.

Al did come back and said a high top table did open up but we decided to stay seated where we were.

Everyone else was fine with the meal and drinks.

Our server Ray was very attentive, warm and friendly. The last time we were there he was our waiter too! I was happy that we had him! Food was excellent! It was our neighbor’s 80th birthday and my husband and I took her to dinner because she has zero family and she is only friends with us! She doesn’t drive and this was quite a big deal for her! She LOVED it and is still raving about it! Thank you for consistent great food and pleasurable atmosphere!

Having not been here in a verrry long time, it was amazing. Everything seemed as excellent as a year ago. Of course, all appropriate precautions were in place. Service was warm, welcoming and efficient. Food was perfection - seafood, pasta, and steak! We were celebrating “missed” birthdays and were not disappointed!

We are never, ever disappointed with everything about Stone Terrace. The food is consistently outstanding. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and we always see other folks there who we know. It's a real treat, especially now with Covid restrictions, to see that Stone Terrace has successfully managed to host a nice amount of people who can feel safe while enjoying a great meal. Thank you for all you are doing to keep those of us brave enough to go out feel welcome and secure.

Always a great experience at John Henry's. Service and food are fabulous. My only negative (and it's not negative in a bad sense) is that we wish there were more NON seafood items on the menu. One of guests has shellfish allergy and the other doesn't eat seafood- so those options were a bit limited. They did find a selection which was enjoyable, just wished there were more than a couple options.

We went for Valentine's Day dinner. A special menu was given to us without any explanation, and no price was given on the menu. After asking our waiter, Gio, who took about 10 minutes to even greet us, we were informed that the menu was $70 pp for 4 courses. That would have been acceptable if everything was available to order. They were out of Filet, which I wanted, and my husband wanted Surf and Turf (which) came with Filet so he was unable to get that. We both settled for the strip steaks, which tasted good. When it came time to order dessert, only 4 of the 7 desserts were available (which happened to be all of the least expensive of all the desserts). We won't be back in the future. If you can't have enough of your menu to go around when your are at a restricted capacity, what would make me think that your restaurant is ever equipped to serve any other time.
