Noonan's Tree House Cafe at Stone Mountain Arts Center
  A truly unique dining experience in the western mountains of Maine  

We're Not Just For Concerts Anymore!!

  We want to be your restaurant!!

Every Friday and Saturday Nights, Any Concert Night,
and Some Selected Thursday Theme Nights

As you may or may not know we have two barns on our property, joined by a breezeway. One is our Maine Concert Hall and one is our 210 year old lobby barn…We call it the Quisisana Barn, named after a place I used to work. We have decided to open as a restaurant in that beautiful old timber frame. Serving dinner in the Barn and renovated porch will be a permanent part of what we do here at SMAC. The take out Biz took off and continues to do so, and now we have worked really hard to make it safe for you to venture inside. Our new “old” barn dining experience will be the talk of the town!! We have created little mini dining rooms and fun socially distanced booths. We even have a few Irish Snugs for extreme privacy. Come check out our renovation for a really cool year round barn dining experience. It’s romantic, fun and supports us too! Dining will be open, selected Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and on Concert Nights too.

How did we get the name? We had a tree house growing up and I would often make sandwiches for me and Katy to have a tree house lunch and to pretend we were a restaurant in the trees!! Haha..well it's almost like that. Come see our grown up restaurant. Katy might take your reservation and I will be making you more than sandwiches!!! And by the way, our prices are a little on the high side, but please know when you support our dining, you support our music too and we thank you!

OH, and the portions are huge!!!!!!!

Seating Options - We have worked very hard to make your socially distanced dining experience special and safe.  
Barn Seating
We made mini little dining rooms in each bay of the 200 year old barn with old doors and windows….and we even have two Irish Snugs. We wanted you to feel special, not just far apart, so each table is really an experience. The bays are divided but the high rafters are still exposed . The barn is big and open, but still cozy. See the options below ...
Our Snugs:
(Two of them)
  The most special bays are our "Snugs"...Snugs were little rooms within the pubs where folks could drink out of view. Like priests, cops, and even the mob! And women were not allowed to drink in many pubs and if they were, the snug was their option! Jeff built two of them and they are amazing little mini dining private rooms.
the bigger snug holds 4 to 8 people
Tree House Wedding Snug
the smaller snug…for 2 to 6 people
Tree House Darby Snug
Octavia's Bays:   Two bays that feature Artist Octavia Bishop's Hand Painted Benches divided by beautiful old French Doors.  
Octavia's Bay Seating in the Tree House
The Record Room:   Features a giant window and doors dividing the bay and with a vintage record player decor.  
Tree House Cafe Record Room
The Jackie & Glen
"Booth" Bay:
  Named after two of our favorite customers who provided some beautiful old pews for two socially distance dining booths. This big open bay leading to the bar is the heart of the old barn. There are two booths for seating or one larger party can enjoy the booths joined at the Jackie and Glen!  
The Bar Stops Here:   Two sections available at the Bar that are blocked off by vintage windows for your own little booth at the bar.
Tree House Cafe Distanced Bar Seating
Tables for Two:   Socially distanced tables for two custom made from bed frames. We even made an antique bed frame table.  
Bed Seating
    Picnic Table seating

Picnic Tables:

We have two uncovered picnic tables at the dressing room courtyard below the Tree House. They are available for table service and sometimes take out. Availability will vary.

The Porch Seating:   It kinda feels like that tree house. The enclosed screened in porch sits high up in the trees where the green shades and the sounds of our old owl and many birds will make the dining experience really special. Oh and you might see a moose on occasion!! Only five socially distanced tables out there. Make your reservations early. Seasonally available. It will stay open as long as you feel hearty enough to weather the weather!!

  • Curbside - must be ordered by 3:00 the day of pick up

  • On a Concert Night - dining and curbside is still open ... but ...
    If it is a concert night, the kitchen has to serve food by 7:30 so we can start the show (the kitchen is in the Main Concert Hall and has to shut down during a concert). We don't want to rush you so we recommend a 6:00 reservation so you are not rushed. That is why we usually only take 6:00ish reservations on concert nights for the Cafe dining.

  • Table Lingering
    Table reservations have a two hour limit especially if there is a reservation waiting :>) Exceptions can be made in advance, but usually not on the porch.

  • Dinner is by Reservations only
    There are lots of special style seating. We will try to honor of all of your requests, but keep in mind we only have a small amount of tables so we will do the best we can. Please let us know if tall chairs are a problem for you . Email us or call ahead. (207-935-7292). Your reservation is not confirmed until you hear back from us. We only have a few tables so don't be a no show!!!

  • Food and Beverage
    We serve Wine and Beer only and our gourmet comfort food menu can be found on our take out page each week….we will have a few additions usually like pizza and salads and additional specials for the indoor menu…so be surprized!

  • Cash is Still King…we prefer cash or checks. In this challenging time, avoiding credit card fees is optimal.

  • Navigating the Covid Restrictions…we know you are taking a leap of faith venturing inside as we are…we all have to work together to make this work..So…...

    * If you feel sick or are at risk please stay home.
    * Don't bunch up at any aware of other patrons..stay six feet apart and one person from your party can check in so there are no lines. Avoid lines!!
    * Rest Rooms….If you see a line….stay six feet apart, wash your hands and wear your mask!
    * There are sanitizers in every doorway...use them!! Be safe!
    * Be respectful. Everyone has their own opinion on all of this craziness and we are all making very personal choices….Lets respect your neighbors, and how they feel. Cause God knows if we have nothing in common right now it is this pandemic!!

  • Dining For Concert Goers.
    You dine where you are seated for show in the Maine Concert Hall. When you order your tickets you can opt for dining or not. Those hours will be posted on your particular concert details.

  • Please be prompt, and avoid coming early or late ..there is no place to wait but your car…please socially distance when waiting to come in the building and better yet send one person to check if the door looks open.

  • Getting here….GPS doesn't always work, so check out our directions page before you come.

  • Lastly Thank you for supporting our Dining business, because when you support our dining, you support the music too!

We will do what we do best…entertain you with food, laughter, friendship and yes, music. Just have to be a little more creative than usual!! Things can only get better right?!!!! :>)
