Where to Eat
UNIQUE DINING

Spotlight: Old Stone Steakhouse

Mouth-watering meals alongside a glass of wine in a warm, inviting atmosphere. For more than ten years, the downtown staple Old Stone Steakhouse has charmed guests with delicious dishes, an extensive beer and wine list, a large outdoor patio and its cocktail and cigar bar, Jailhouse – aptly named for the former police confinement area it occupies.

For more than 100 years, the Belmont Police Department occupied a 2,800 foot space on Main Street. In 2007, Old Stone Steakhouse restored the historic space, offering upscale steak and seafood at casual prices within a welcoming, preserved environment. Make your season a little warmer with delectable dining at this downtown restaurant.
