Alvah Stone offers award winning dining experience

No one has ever questioned that the Alvah Stone is a gorgeous venue, and as we descended the ramp onto the deck overlooking the falls of the Sawmill River we were reminded why. Having heard that a tweak to service and menus being deemed “Alvah 5.0” had just resulted in multiple regional dining awards, we were anxious to take a fresh look at this beautiful restaurant’s service and food.

Everyone agrees that The Alvah Stone is a gorgeous restaurant tucked away in Franklin County. Sit outside and you have a sight of a waterfall.

“If there were 10 stars to select, I’d give them all! Amazing atmosphere (sat outside near the waterfall). Food was incredible, as the sharing plates came out, each was better than the last- we didn’t want them to stop coming!” - Kimberly M.

“But once you're seated on the Alvah's plank wood deck overlooking the rushing Sawmill River, digging into your delicate chicken liver mousse on toasted rye, smoked sorghum chicken wings, or pillowy gnocchi alla Romana, and sipping on wild fermented hard cider or an Old Pal cocktail on tap, you'll feel a zillion miles away from any frat house or strip-mall Target.”
