This is known as a breakfast place, but we went there for lunch. I had the mussels with basil pesto cream sauce and my husband the black bean pasta. We shared the dishes. Both were delicious, although I favored the mussels, which were large, plump...More

Went for an early dinner and found the restaurant to be fantastic! The service was super friendly and the waiter clearly knew the food well. None of the recommendations were disappointing. I had the jambalaya and it was amazing.

Stoneface Dolly's is a very popular breakfast place. The only explanation for that, is that people don't have anywhere else to go. It is at best average, but at above average prices. The extensive breakfast menu is fine, although I have never had a meal...More
