Getting there

  • Parking: Private Lot
A word from Hot Stone Grill
Since early man first discovered fire he has cooked on stone. The Hot Stone concept of today utilizes a specially designed ceramic plate incorporating a super-heated slab of volcanic rock. The rock is heated slowly overnight in a patented “Hot Rok” oven to around 400 degrees F., it is then seasoned with a proprietary mix of Himalayan Salt and Spices. The entrée is seared by Chef and presented to the patron outrageously fresh and sizzling hot on your plate. You then cook your entrée to your own taste and specification, adding sauces and sides in your own time.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "We went there for Valentines day. The sauce with the fillet hot stone was clearly from a tin or packet. There was no blue cheese as mentioned on the menu. I did not appreciate the way we got herded through all the courses. Before I could put down my fork for main course, they already plonked the desert on the table. We didn't feel like staying too long after the desert, since we were rushed through the 5 courses in what must be a Olympic record. Won't be back, I'd rather go to Mcdonalds. It would have been more romantic."

  • "Took over an hour to get our appetizers and an hour and a half for the entree. The restaurant is nice and the hot stone concept is unique and fun but service needs to speed up."

  • "Overall experience was great. Food was very good and having the hot stone in front of you is an experience. Our waitress went out of the way to accommodate my fiance who did not like what they offered on the special occasion menu that was available when we were there. Only downside is it's very smoky in the restaurant from the food being cooked in front of you, and you smell like grilled food pretty badly when you leave. I guess that's part of the experience though, it wouldn't stop me from going back."

  • "We were so pleased with our 1st visit we made reservations on the spot to return with friends. Not good - calamari was soggy (taken off bill), mussels were a small portion (1st visit, enough to be a little meal), one friends steak came out late and already over cooked. Just not consistent. - we were disappointed."

  • "Food and concept is outstanding. Small so be sure to make reservations! We had reservations during Resturant Week and in the middle to dinner we were moved to another table to make room for another partner. Still waiting for our coffee we wanted with dessert. Will give them another try"

  • "It was restaurant week and my wife and I were able to get in at Hot Stone Grille. Our wait was short all things considered until we sat down. After being seated we waited at least 15 min before anyone came over to acknowledge us. Our waitress apologized and was very kind and we placed orders. Salads were good but entree's were horrible. Ragu has more flavor then the sauce on my wife's chicken dish that appeared to be prepared by a heat lamp. She didn't even eat but sent her plate back. Steak was a good cut of meat, but again no flavor. They put nothing on it. Would not recommend this for anyone as a good meal especially for the cost. Applebee's has stronger flavor and is 1/3 the price."

  • "They were clearly not ready for the volume of a Queen's Feast weekend night. Nobody at host desk when we arrived. drinks were made incorrectly twice, never got salad that was ordered, French onion soup was cold, no bread brought, calamari was a big bowl of grease. Entrees were OK. 3 servers in the whole restaurant for a Friday night one of which was only there a week. Would not go back."

  • "I love Hot Stone Grill. It's a unique dining experience. The service was a little slow but I chalked it up to the restaurant being crowded that night. Still a wonderful experience and highly recommend."

  • "This is the second time I have been to this restaurant and I really enjoyed it. The flavor is not overwhelming, allowing you to taste the natural flavor of the meat."

  • "Took advantage of Queen's week and Hot Stone...so glad that we did! The service from the entire staff including the chef was personal and focused on our needs. We loved the presentation and the food. I ordered from the menu...I had the mussels as an entrée and would order again - the white sauce that the mussels were in was outstanding. I also ordered the French Onion soup - wow! The broth was excellent. My husband ordered from the feast menu and loved the Hot Stone shrimp and scallops. We already have reservations for Friday night and will be taking our friends. No reason to go Uptown, Cornelius / Huntersville have some of the best restaurants!"

  • "For first time customers, nobody showed nor explained us the best way to cook your food on hot stone. Waiter was clueless on hot stone temp. Did they think every home cooks on hot stone? Waiter assumed our side dish, did not check on our beverage refills. Waiter served my dessert with spoon in the middle of plate on top of chocolate syrup, he saw it & said Oh!...he didn't offer to give me a clean spoon!!! I had to grab a fork from empty table. We watched & learned from other dining customers how to cook our raw food. One waitress gave 1 table some bread. Was that part of service? We & 2 other tables did not get any bread!!! Good food concept but horrible dining experience!"

  • "Was very crowded due to Restaurant Week. Our group of 4 waited 30 minutes at the bar for our reservation; took 25 minutes to get someone's attention to order a drink at the bar. Entree was very small: 2 scallops and 2 shrimps on a hot stone. We were not served bread, which might have helped. Dessert ordered was not served and no explanation given. We all left hungry, and felt the restaurant was too pricey to still be hungry!"

  • "Much nicer than expected. Location is hidden. Greeted warmly, and seated right away. Ordered from Queens Feast menu. Salad was superb. Had the filets, they were so tender you could cut with fork! The hot stone finishes cooking our steak at the table, so perfect temp!!! It became a bit smoky but not overwhelming! We finished off with a cheese cake and banana pastry, both were outstanding. Overall, we had a great meal and a nice evening."

  • "Visit during Queens Feast. Unique concept with most entrees having protein served on individual 6x6 hot stone, You allow protein to cook to desired level of 'done'. Wife had steak, I had shrimp & scallops. Both proteins very good as were vegetables we ordered as side (2 potato options also available). Both had Caesar salads had generous portions of Parmesan, excellent Caesar dressing. Dessert choices of cheesecake, banana puff pastry or chocolate spoon cake. Cheesecake and banana pastry both very good. Cheesecake in particular had really nice texture and flavor. For $30 per person, we think this was a good price for a good meal. Normal menu pricing would have been ~$45, would be hard to justify value"

  • "Me and wife was in the Charlotte area last weekend and I discoverd this place on yelp It show becuz the have stake on a rock a hot rock that comes out at 400 degrees and you cook it yourself We have a restaurant like that back home in Jersey and it's great so I was expecting it to be good so when we Walk in a older gentleman greeted us and opened up the door the place was really small with a small bar there was a few ppl eating but the place was dead are waiter was a young guy with a decent attitude I ordered A fillet mignon with Shrimp the stake was good noting like back home the Shrimp had a funny taste besides the dead atmosphere I guess it was a ok place"

  • "table of 4, from 6:30 till 7:38... no water refill. had one appetizer, Server said our meal would be out in about 5 minutes, we inquired how about our soups and salads, Bad night for all of us. Two other tables had already asked for check before main course. That left 2 tables occupied. So when we left. only 1 table to wait on. Hopefully they had their meal and it was worth the wait."
    Dined on 12/23/2013
  • "We had appetizers and entrees. Both were exceptional. The filets were brought out on a 400 degree hot stone so u sliced the meat and let it sear to the temp you wanted. The chef prepares it all with Himalayan salt. It is not just a meal it is an experience. BTW the dessert was phenomenal as well. Give this place a try for awesome food and exceptional service"

  • "My husband and I have eaten here twice, only to be wow'd by the quality of the food. The hot-stone experience is very cool and should be something that everyone needs to try. We are "snobs" when it comes to cuts of meat - especially steak, and you cannot go wrong at this place! I'd rather go here for a filet than any of the other "fine dining" restaurants in the Huntersville area. This place is definitely under-rated and needs better marketing to get people in the door. Both times that we've been, there has only been one or two tables besides us. Not sure why the Lake Norman area hasn't found this little gem."

  • "Our whole family (2 adults and 2 pre-teens) dined at the Hot Stone Grill in early December 2013. It was our first visit to try out what seemed likely to be a fun dining experience. The Hot Stone Grill didn't disappoint. The quality of the food was terrific. Of course, when your customers are finishing off the cooking of, say, filet mignon at the table on a hot stone grill, poor quality would quickly show itself. My wife and the kids really enjoyed their dishes. When we go back, though, we'll probably leave the kids at home with pizza. While they enjoyed the novelty of cooking on a hot stone, the finer aspects of the experience were lost on them. It would be a fun place for date night."

  • "The restaurant was quiet with a unique dining concept- like Melting Pot where you let your meat cook on a volcanic rock to your desired temp. The stones and variety of entrees were the strongest advantages to this eatery. There were menu items like duck, mussels and game. However, the level of customer service left a lot to be desired at the bar and table. The knowledge level of wait staff was dim regarding alcohol and food. The wine list was generic. I would return again just to see if the experience improved because the food itself was strong. But if the level of service doesn't improve to match the dining concept and price, this restaurant will fall off my radar. Staff need to take notes from other $100/person restaurants."

  • "My son and I are foodies. We ordered the traditional meal - 3 course. The salad course was very fresh and I especially liked the white balsamic vingarette. The main course was very traditional -> Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and a dab of cranberry. Excellent presentation as well as ample portion size. There were several choices for desert. My son had an apple turnover and i enjoyed a banana turnover which was recommended by our server which was excellent. Speaking of service, we were lucky to have had Sadie as our server. I would return to try their normal fare and I would insist on Sadie as our server."

  • "We went there for thanksgiving because they had a great deal- 3 course meal for 30 dollars and we were looking for a good home away from home meal. Our entire group collectively agreed that the food was not good at all. The stuffing, which is normally my favorite part of every meal, ended up being the worst part of this meal. The best part probably was the cranberry sauce... The presentation was great! but the food (which is the most important part) wasn't. We were disappointed, to say the least, and probably won't return for a thanksgiving feast, however the service and staff were very friendly, I would give their normal menu another try."

  • "Only two waitresses for the entire restaurant, but they were both friendly and helpful. The calamari literally had no flavor. I don't think there was even salt in the batter. Luckily the dips were delicious and made up for the lack of taste. Mojito was fantastic!"

  • "Our server, Sadie, was kind, warm, and genuine. Our son had an injury, and she offered to gather up magazines if he needed to further elevate his foot. Thoroughly unnecessary but so very kind. Ahmed, the chef, came out for congenial conversation and to check on how we were enjoying the food. The cocktails were fun and tasty. And the food was superb. We highly recommend Hot Stone for every possible reason."

  • "We went on a last minute whim to Hot Stone. We looked at the menu and thought it would be a great "try". Food was prepared well and with unique flavoring a. A mixture of Moroccan and French favors combined with some good ethnic variety. The proteins are presented on a "hot stone" truly cooking on the stone- really cool presentation. The new menu appears to be even better and the chef is a great. Give this place a try as it is something truly unique."
