Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping that "Liquor is quicker, but get me a single malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!" Be like Ol' Winnie with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of food and drinks at Stone Mad Pub on the west side. A surplus of wood paneling, intricately detailed furniture, and a painted ceiling spice up the pub’s interior, where a full bar menu nurses empty stomachs back to full health with a selection of soups, sandwiches, and entrees. Outside, a stone patio offers fresh air and rustic relaxation, while the bar’s indoor bocce ball court provides a playing field to prepare for upcoming battles against monsters whose only weakness is getting lightly tapped with a plastic sphere.
- I love everything about Stone Mad-- the decor, the incredibly comfortable bar stools. (Seriously.) The Bocce court. It oozes "cool" and "comfort," which can be hard to do simultaneously. Laura, Urbanspoon
- Excellent technique coupled with fine ingredients means that most items come out tasting great. And for the most part, prices are good and cheap. – Douglas Trattner, Cleveland Scene
