    Daughters and I met there for lunch about a year ago. Food was lousy, service sucked. Great location, but, the prices for lousy food and service isnt worth it.

    I do like those!

    It's a bummer, because it is close to home for us. I used to go there all the time when Nick & Rusty ran it, prior to opening the Lighthouse. It's such an expected disappointment anymore.

    I was thinking about what it used to be. Amazing food, terrific service, excellent location. It's definitely gone downhill over the last few years.

    Back in 1995, I was going to approach the owner of Stoney's to see if he was interested in leasing/operating the restaurant I'd just bought in Piney Point. Because their reputation was really something back then and I wanted somebody good. Ended up leasing it to the two guys that ran House of Ribs in Charlotte Hall instead...and that arrangement never really went anywhere before Hurricane Fran squashed all of our plans in fall of '96.

    Sad to hear they've lost their edge...but you see it happen everywhere eventually.

    That may be so. They leased the building to their chef and he took over the business. But the Stoney's still own the building, well, at least until the foreclose date anyway.
    If the military wanted you to have a spouse, or family, they would have issued you one.

    They refused to honor a Stoney's gift certificate.

    You are correct. Totally different owners.

    At the time, I didn't know that. I was schooled that evening. Good thing I had money to pay for my dinner.
