NJ Monthly recently named Stone Water as one of The 25 Best New Restaurants of 2018:
Stone Water, Lake Hopatcong
Unless you were docking your boat in the marina, not much drew you to the finger-shaped northeast corner of Lake Hopatcong. That changed last Memorial Day weekend with the opening of Stone Water, the grandest waterfront construction project on the lake in recent memory. Stone Water pulled in some 1,200 customers that weekend. Deep into autumn, with fireplace flickering and flat screens pumping out sports, the 220-seat space was still hopping. Little wonder. It’s a soaring, rustic lodge with lake views through huge windows and on the long balcony. But its success is about victuals as much as visuals. Chef Domenick Torlucci turns out generously portioned, crowd-pleasing American dishes, some with Iberian accents. Lively, informed servers and a strong bar scene complete the transformation of a backwater into a destination with valet parking.
