Sticks and Stones celebrated their 5th Anniversary in May, 2018

Schroon’s Sticks and Stones has bagged another honor, named by the Taste of Home magazine as one of the best small town restaurants in America.

How was Sticks chosen? From the magazine:

“Our volunteer Field Editors helped us find the country’s best small-town restaurants. Each spot cooks up hearty and delicious food that’s beloved by locals and any folks passing through!”

Sticks gets this rap:

Deep in the Adirondacks amidst pristine lakes and towering trees is Sticks & Stones. Here they perfectly capture the comfort of a camp cabin with lots of warm, knotty pine and plenty of space to sit outdoors around the fire.

From Gary and Steve:

"We are honored and humbled to be included in this list! Thank you very much to all of you, our wonderful guests who continue to support us!"
