A word from FlameStone American Grill
FlameStone American Grill is a casually sophisticated American Grill that places an emphasis on cooking with nature’s most basic elements: Fire & Stone. Our passion is to serve highly flavored food with the highest quality service possible. We use natural cooking techniques such as grilling over an open fire or preparing our guacamole using lava stone, to give our food exceptional flavor and taste.

Starters such as Tableside Guacamole or Stone Oven Flat Breads make your first choice a tough one. FlameStone’s Tableside Guacamole is an experience that is unlike any guacamole you have ever tasted. Made tableside using a traditional Molcajete, we only use Haas Avocados and the freshest ingredients possible. It is truly amazing.

If a great steak is your weakness, you’ll love our steaks. At FlameStone we grill our steaks over an open flame and only use Stock Yards Chicago Angus Beef that is 28 day aged and that are hand cut on premises.

    The service is ALWAYS warm and friendly at Flamestone. Overall the food and presentation are on point. Occasionally there are a few off moments but they are quickly corrected. Tableside guacamole is excellent and truly made to order. The grilling can sometimes be a bit overzealous-read charred- but they will cheerfully cook another meal for you. The ambiance is warm and comfortable.

    The waiter had disappeared every once in a while. The prime rib was EXTREMELY FATTY (classic cut) and the new york strip was supposed to have been medium but served well. We did receive a creme brulee on the house for our anniversary (which was very nice). The rest of the food was delicious!

    Guacamole was outstanding. Dennis did an excellent job in making the dish and we enjoyed our conversation with him. Lindsey our server also did a nice job and was very attentive. Food. Ehh, not the best, not the worst. Wife ordered Prime Rib, Medium Rare. It came Medium to Well Done. Manager did come over and brought my wife a new one out, which was nice, but our meal was basically over at the point. Probably should have offered a free dessert or even a drink. Just a thought.. Came in from out of town, just not sure it's on the top of my list to ever go back soon.

    I have been to Flamestone many times and am consistently pleased though not often "wowed". This was my first experience with brunch. The menu was a bit more limited than I would have liked but the food was great and the service was excellent. Our waiter was engaging without being overbearing and other staff that helped were pleasant and helpful. Once we ordered (we took our time) the food was out promptly and accurately. I will definitely go back and definitely recommend.

    We enjoyed to our first visit to Flamestone, so we thought we would try it a second. We enjoyed the table side guacamole for an appetizer. They let you taste it and make some adjustments while the ingredients are still there. Wife got the rib-eye while I enjoyed the prime rib. Both were cooked perfectly. The server had forgotten my salad, but made up for it by bringing out a complementary dessert.

    Every time we dine at Flamestone, the food is delicious and always hot!! I like my food served the way it should be... Hot. The burgers are always great and their fish dishes and fish specials are always incredible. They brine their chicken in house before putting them on the rotisserie ..... So tasty!! We get great service from the waiters and management-Sam (manager) and Jeff (assistant manager) always circulate the restaurant to make sure we are happy with our service and that the food is prepared to our liking. Their menu is extensive so you can find anything you want from burgers, salads to steaks and fish.

    Easy reservation using Open Table, and I enjoyed the florist option which allowed flowers to be waiting on the table. The entire staff was welcoming and smiling. The tableside guacamole adds a personal touch, and the gentleman serving it was friendly. Our server made sure the food came out at a relaxed pace. The filet and skirt steaks were perfect. The vegetables were pleasantly zesty and we will order them again. The drink menu was extensive and my wife enjoyed one of the specialty martinis. Sadly, we had no room for dessert, but was intrigued by the offerings. Perhaps next time.

    They're great. Food here is consistently good and we are repeat offenders. Flat-breads are excellent. Risotto is occasionally under cooked but bamboo rice is a decent alternative. Love the petite filet. Cappuccino is excellent and comes with my favorite- sugar sticks :) s'mores are fun for your inner pyro and bathrooms are clean. Specialty cocktails are excellent and standard mixed drinks are usually good- but better pours if you're ordering those at the babr.

    We go to Flamestone often so we were happy to see them on Open Table now. They have amazing steaks and the guacamole is just ridiculous. The cocktails are great as well. It definitely does get a little busy so definitely make a reservation, especially on the weekends, or you'll have to wait a while. We've never had a bad experience and will continue to visit Flamestone often. I forgot to mention their Fried Oreos also...fried oreos??? Amazing.

We had a tremendous, insightful, and engaging waiter who steered us towards the best wines and food selections for the evening. The guacamole prepared at our table was incredible and the server/prepper was funny and entertaining. We will definitely recommend this restaurant to all of our friends.

    Our Server Teri was excellent. Wait time was a little long. We had made reservations but still had to wait 30 minutes. The food was okay. It was cooked correctly and served in a timely manner. I simply did not feel it was worth the price. If I was in the area and needed a decent restaurant I might consider Flamestone. I do not think I would make a special trip.
