Everything was good but we were seated around large groups which were very loud.

Nice but noisy
Excellent food and service, but the acoustics make for a noisy environment. It is difficult to have a quiet conversation.

Mouth watering good.
It was our first trip. Everything we tried burst in our mouths with taste. My steak was well done, fork tender and juicy.

A Night To Remember
Three friends and I visited Stoney River recently and had a most enjoyable experience. Two of us had dined there previously, but were very pleased again by the food and service.

Great find in Louisville
We were visiting from LA and had experienced some less than stellar food on our trip. One of my local friends recommended Stoney River. We were not disappointed. The steaks were great, crab cakes, bisque and sides were all on point. Our server was very accommodating as well. Overall, a great experience. We will definitely go back next time we visit.

For a place that we thought
For a place that we thought would have great meat - they did not putting our prime rib (which was not cooked to our liking) in a salt mix was horrible probably worse prime rib we have ever had. My husband could not eat it.

Food was delicious...
Very good time. Food was prepared well. Our server Thomas was great. He remembered our names and made us feel very comfortable. He recommended many items on and off the menu. He was very knowledgeable of the restaurant. Food comes out quickly. Would have gone 5 stars but I just think its a bit over priced.

Overall dinner was great. Only down fall was ono seating away from bar.

A varied menue with many different choices. The food was most excellent and I cleared my plate. Notable dishes were the Mac and cheese and the triple layer chocolate ganash cake with 2 shot glasses of milk.

Best steak I've ever had!
From the bread, spinach dip, filet, baked potato & desert EVERYTHING was AMAZING!!! The filet literally melted in my mouth...
I truly enjoyed everything about the experience except for the loud room we were in. We sat beside 2 large groups of people who were really loud which kind of ruined the "mood" for us but other than that it was Excellent!

Didn't have the drink I requested.
Didn't have the drink I requested. A spider landed on our table during dinner. It probably fell from the open light fixture above our table. Steaks were great but all other food was just so-so.

This is my third time dining at Stoney River and each experience was great. The food was very good and the service was excellant. Dining out is very important to me because my husband and I try to only eat out about three timea a month. Stony River has become one of our favorites!

we love the atmosphere, the
we love the atmosphere, the menu and the service. Our favorite place to dine in Lousiville.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
As usual the food was delicious. Top quality. Our server was delightful and mindful of not turning our dinner order in too quickly so that we could enjoy our appetizer. However, she may not have turned it in quick enough, or the kitchen was just a little slow that night. She said things had been coming out slowly all evening and apologized and comped us free dessert. All in all, a nice evening and experience. One of our favorite restaurants on the East side of town.
Will definitely go back.

Coffee + Steak = Tasty
I've been to Stoney River at two other locations in the past and generally, food is consistent. I usually opt for 7 oz Coffee-cured filet mignon with the garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli (for mental relief over the calories). The steak is great - the seasonings do not overpower the steak, and it is always cooked the way I like it (medium rare). As far as service goes, everything was perfect. My table of three had drinks refilled without asking and she came to check up on us periodically before our entrees arrived to the table. One thing I must note is the amazing service all around. We had the manager personally come to the table and give us another macaroni and cheese side because he thought the one brought out with the meal was dry.

I took my wife for her birthday, the foid was amazing, steaks were cooked perfectly, and the service was great as usual.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A few years ago when the economy took a downturn it seemed so did the quality of the steaks at Stoney River. First time there in a while. The filet was exceptional. As good as I've had. Only thing missing to make it the best in town is the sizzling butter.

Outback on Steroids
Food and service was good not five star. Not a lot of nuances with serving - food came before salads finished, dishes removed before everyone was finished, second requests had to be made and some not followed up or slow. And it was a Monday night and not packed.
9/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good food. Amazing steak and overall a very good experience. I would recommend this to anyone.

Stoney River was an excellent place to spend our 2 year anniversary. They went out of our way to make our evening special.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We always come here to celebrate
We always come here to celebrate special occasions with our family members, birthdays,anniversaries, and any out of town visitors. We have never had a bad experience and always come away well pleased! Great service and great food! Thank you for such wonderful service!

My husband and I chose this restaurant for our anniversary and we had a wonderful experience. We made a reservation on line but probably didn't have to have one for a weeknight. We were seated promptly and our server greeted us quickly and answered any of our questions. She kept our drinks full and checked on us often but was not overbearing. We both ordered the house salads and filets and they were the best we had had in a long time. We have eaten at more expensive restaurants, but felt this experience was just as great! Will be back for special occasions!

After Business dinner
Had a very good time at restaurant. Food was well presented and very high quality. Waiter was engaging, but not intrusive. He worked well with our group. Food timings were good. We weren't still eating appetizers as the main course was brought out. This time was an improvement over last time. Food was better. Steaks were better trimmed.

Great food, atmosphere lacking
Second time at Stoney River, and I got the coffee cured 7 oz filet. Absolutely mouthwatering. My caesar salad, however, had WAY too much dressing on it. My biggest complaint was the lighting and the noise level. It was too dim for us to read the menu, so we drew out our cellphones and turned on the flashlight apps. Also, there was a large table in an adjoining room that was in itself quite loud, but to top it off their server was quite boisterous as well. For a higher priced steakhouse, I felt we had to talk way too loudly to hear our conversation. Definitely come back for the food, and hope for a quieter crowd.

Adult daughter's birthday
We had a delicious dinner. The waitress was great and helpful but not too overbearing, which we like. I had forgotten how good a steak could taste!
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
everything was great but they had taken the caramelized onion mash potatoes off the menu(who in management had that not so bright idea). they didn't take it off the menu and we weren't told. got regular mash potatoes and informed at the end of the meal. I would have ordered something else.....I want my money back.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I usually dislike chain restaurants, but this was very good. Great service, great food. Fantastic birthday experience for my Ada's.
10/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great menu, great service, and a great first experience.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very pleasant and quite good
Really good food and wine for us, and kid-friendly for our 16 month old grandson. The hostess and our waiter were very nice and helpful.

5 Star !!!!
I loved this restaurant!!!! The food was simply delicious. The atmosphere was very nice. My favorite dish was the fried lobster tail. I would recommend this place for special occasions. It is somewhat pricey but it is worth every penny!!!!!!!!

Great Food and Service
Stoney River has exceptionally good food. I had the lobster bisque and coffee cured filet and both were excellent. The service was good and very attentive. The only complaint I have is the noise level of this restaurant is extremely loud, it must be all the wood inside because nothing seems to absorb it. Also if you are not tall I would recommend requesting a table, the seats in the booths are wide and tall and your feet will not touch the ground making it rather uncomfortable.

A Great Dinning experience!
What a wonderful experience, from the time we arrived, until the time we left. The food was excellent, the service was top notch and the atmosphere was warm and friendly. We took advantage of the call ahead seating from OpenTable.com and arrive at the set time and was seated immediately. I enjoyed the NY Strip (my favorite steak) and my girlfriend enjoyed one of your specials. Again...Thank You for such a wonderful experience!

We went to Stoney River to celebrate our anniversary. Our children suggested it and we were very pleased with the entire evening. We both got the Coffee Cured filet and found that to be delicious. Our waitress was very friendly and warm. We have already recommended the restaurant to family and friends.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Stoney River is one of my favorite restaurants. They have a great coffee-cured steak and very good shrimp. They also have some delicious poppy seed rolls with this very sweet butter, I think they said it has sugar and honey in it. Overall one of my favorite restaurants and I recommend it highly.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
As always - great steaks and service. This is my first choice for fine dining at a reasonable price.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great steak; prime rib ... meh
I had the 20oz Legendary Filet, which was cooked medium rare to perfection and there was enough left for lunch the following day. My friend is not a big steak eater and considered the salmon specials before choosing the prime rib. My steak was excellent, exactly what I expected for the price. My side of bearnaise was perfect as well. The prime rib, while very good, was no different than any other restaurant. The portion was sizeable, but fairly fatty. We both agreed that, for the same price, the steak was the superior choice. Our total for two beers, two side salads (excellent as well), and two entrees was a little over $100, plus tip.

Stoney River remains one of our favorite dining establishments in Louisville. My wife and are firm believers that for finding a great steak, Stoney River has the best overall value in town. We took my 85 year old mother Monday evening on what woud have been her 63 wedding anniversary. My father passed this January and we could tell in the days leading up to our dinner, she was a bit blue. Our dinner at Stoney River that evening was first rate. Our steaks were flavorful and cooked just right. Our server was attentive without being too visible. My Mom enjoyed her evening out and commented how much she enjoyed the meal. My thanks to the staff at SR for another memorable dinner.
