Anyone who rates SHI less than 5 stars is out of their mind...We got married 8/17/13 and the wedding was INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!! From the moment we arrived that day we were treated like pure gold...Everything was out of this world...We have been receiving phone calls non-stop and so have our parents about our wedding...guests saying that is was one of (if not) the BEST wedding they have ever been to...so nice to hear...SUPER attentive was the ENTIRE staff! Anything we needed we received. The food is simple AMAZING!!! Every single dinner was piping hot (not normal for a wedding) and it was delicious! I could go on and on about the SHI, but you will just have to take my word for it...We wish we could it every year...we will be returning for our anniversary every single year for as long as we can:)))))

We had a beautiful wedding day and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. I actually went to each table to ask the guests if they received their food as ordered, it was an overwhelming yes. How amazing is it to receive 85 perfectly cooked steaks? The venue itself is gorgeous. The bridal suite in particular makes for gorgeous photographs.

We had a very difficult time with the new coordinator, Kathy, she was helpful in person but was very difficult to get a hold of. Also there were a lot of times when she would tell us one thing in person, then another over the phone. They are not flexible about children. Five and under were 85.00 including a 2yo who didn't eat a bite all night (I only had two children)

Overall we enjoyed ourselves and I know our guest had a great time. They did not kick us out at the end of the night and the bartenders were AMAZING! Ken, in particular was fabulous. If you're looking for amazing food not the standard wedding fair, this is definitely a place to check out.

After looking at a number of venues, we decided on the Stony Hill Inn for several reasons. Other venues seemed somewhat disconnected in the process, whereas the Stony Hill Inn really made us feel as though they wanted our business. Eric, the manager, welcomed my fiance and me...and then my parents...on a couple of occasions before we finally signed our contract. The Stony Hill Inn offers a huge, delicious, cocktail hour...many of our guests were surprised at the multi-course sit down dinner that followed. The food was exceptional. The bar was well-stocked at all times, and the service was exemplary, especially the maitre de, Sammy, and bridal attendant. All of this considered, and the Stony Hill Inn was still more affordable than some of the other venues, all of which were not offering nearly as much as the Stony Hill Inn. Absolutely recommended!

Our ceremony and our reception were exceptional!! The ceremony was outside at the gazebo it was what our guests decribe as loving, spiritual, and funny the best ceremony they were ever part of. The cocktail hour had so much food people thought that was all they needed. The seafood was endless. The Grand Ballroom was so beautifully decorated it was breathtaking..Thanks to Ron at Wildflowers! The Main Course through the Viennese Table in the Crystal Room simply the BEST! ALL Service Captains, Waitstaff, and Valet did a wonderful job. Entertainment was unbelieveable!!
Especially THE RHYTHM SHOP!! JOANIE AND ERIC YOU BOTH MADE OUR WEDDING SPECTACULAR! THANK YOU SO SO MUCH!!! WE LOVE YOU GUYS! EDDIE AND RO GOLDBERG

I went to wedding at the Stony Hill Inn my junior year in high school and it made a lasting impression on me. I made up my mind that day that I was going to get married there and 12 years later I did. The service, the food, and the atmosphere were just what I was looking for.

The Stony Hill Inn was the perfect place for our wedding. My husband and I had to rush our wedding plans this year because he is being deployed to Iraq. We had to plan our wedding in 5 weeks! When we went to The Stony Hill Inn and explained our situation they were simply amazing in helping to fit us in! Then the day of our wedding everything was perfect! The room was elegant and beautiful. The food was amazing and all our guest had a wonderful time.
Thank you Stony Hill Inn for you wonderful job!

The Stony Hill Inn was so elegant. We had the pre-reception with the piano player, which allowed everyone to comfortably attend the actual wedding without rushing directly into the ceremony. When the ceremony began, new friendships had already been formed and a festive atmosphere was everywhere. The staff were incredibly attentive without being overbearing. My husband and I were thrilled with our black tie and candlelit evening!

The Stony Hill Inn was a wonderful venue for my wedding. I am thrilled everytime I think about the gorgeous reception that we had there. Bob, the manager with whom we worked, was fabulous. He was responsive, on top of all of the details, and kept us laughing even through the stressful points of planning.

The service and food were phenomenal. My father commented that only once has he been to a venue that had such phenomenal service...and that was at The Pierre in NYC. Glasses were constantly filled, food was delicious and served hot, and all of our and our guests' needs were met.

Finally, the venue is gorgeous. The Crystal Room and The Ballroom looked splendid and it was so special to have our reception at this historic site. Many venues give the feeling of being "wedding factories" with up to four weddings going on at once. Only one wedding happens at a time at The Stony Hill Inn and the charm and history of the place add a special touch to the wedding.

It was the perfect venue for a small wedding. We did a buffet style wedding. I love to dance as do most of my friends and family. I didn't want to have to sit down every few minutes to have a course. People ate what and when they wanted. We had an awesome DJ. I was 49 and my husband 59! Our friends and family danced and had a blast.
The food was great. We had several vegetarians (including me!) and there was plenty of choices. We also had carving stations, etc. for the people who eat meat and fish.
Beautiful room, great food, good time!

Stony Hill Inn was amazing in every way. Our guests were blown away by the cocktail hour and some even thought that was the dinner. We had use of three different rooms for the pre-reception, cocktail hour and dinner and there were more than enough choices of food and drink for all the guests. We came in to the cocktail hour late and staff rushed over to us, sat us down at a table, put napkins in our laps and brought us whatever we wished so that we could socialize with guests. The food at the dinner was amazing and beautifully presented, guests were taking pictures of their plates! Stony Hill Inn was above and beyond what I imagined and I am so glad I had them for my reception!

I can't say enough good things! We got engaged and married in four months. Stony Hill Inn came highly recommended and they did not disappoint. They worked with us on the price (since we booked so close to our wedding date they were willing to be flexible). The food and service was amazing and our guests raved about them. Everyone there was so professional and nice, from the maitre d down to the bathroom attendant.

The Stony Hill Inn far exceeded my husband and my expectations. When we booked our wedding, we knew it would be exquisitely done, with wonderful food, and impeccable service. But our wedding day was so far above and beyond that. Everything was perfect, and there was someone attending not only to our every need, but to that of our parents as well. We received numerous comments from our guests that they stuffed themselves at the elaborate cocktail hour thinking that was dinner, and they were amazed at the sit down dinner after. We will be recommending the Stony Hill Inn VERY highly to everyone we know. We can't wait to go back for dinner to celebrate our 1st anniversary.

First the high points: Beautiful space and delicious food. With those essential categories as good as they were, you would think I could recommend this venue with flying colors. But now for the low points: the service and attention to detail were ATROCIOUS. Even my guests noticed and commented on it. Not to complain, but because they felt bad that even the bride was not being taken care of in any way. A few examples out of many: I had to ask for my salad when everyone else at the table was half finished with theirs; The cake was brought out with no serving utensils and the topper was on backwards; The wait staff was just sloppy, but the management was worse, downright rude and unaccommodating. To tell you all the details of that would be traumatizing all over again so I'll spare myself and simply say, if you need a venue for a casual dinner party where service and detailed planning are not essential, fine, but if you're looking to be treated with class and professionalism on your special day...this place ain't it.
