Diner Reviews
  • "I was pleased to see Stokes west changed their menu making it similar to the downtown Stokes. The service was fine but somewhat unorganized. We just started to enjoying our appetizer when our main course came out. Bad timing."

  • "Food and service excellent. Top shelf margarita was terrible !"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Overall the experience was pretty good, although the food was pretty expensive for what it was. 11 dollars for a cheese dip appetizer? For 30 a person, probably would go somewhere else."

  • "Great place to celebrate a birthday! The food is excellent, a variety of dishes but pricey. The wait staff is usually great, a few are a bit snotty. "

  • "Took my mom for mother's day. Our food came out cold. Stokes used to be the gold standard for tilapia fish tacos. Unfortunately, they have gotten worse over the years. The sauce has changed, not for the better. The last three times I have ordered the fish tacos they have been wet, and the tortillas were soggy. Our food was a let down, but our server was exceptional. She was informative, attentive and cheerful. A positive was that our group of 6 was seated at a big round table which was conducive for conversation. "

  • "Great food. The fish traces were outstanding. A little loud for my comfort, but others may enjoy that atmosphere. "

  • "Food was good but expensive - bill averaged over $20 per person for what amounts to Mexican food - each party had either enchilada or taco/fajita plate."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "We have been to Stokes many times. This was the worst meal we have ever had. There were 4 of us dining. All 4 of us thought it was terrible. The Chicken tortilla soup, which came after the main course, tasted litke dish water. The corn chowder tasted like cake batter. We all had the famous, and usually delicious Sharon's chicken enchiladas, they were terrible."

  • "As Sr. citizens, we have trouble with our hearing. This restaurant was just too noisy for us. They had great food and the server was excellent. Being just off the Dodge Expressway it is easy to get to. If you want to enjoy the great food but have trouble with the noise, we would recommend going earlier in the evening. Kudo"

  • "My first time at Stokes - West for lunch. Very busy, average food, good service but very loud. If you are trying to have a business lunch meeting, I would consider a different location because of the noise level. Overall, of you have a casual lunch meeting, I would recommend."

  • "Great food, great drinks, unusual texmex, bbq, unique wood stove flavor"

  • "The drinks were weak at best, it was noisy, food was on a 1-10 scale a 4. We won't go back. That's all you really need to know."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "We have been to Stokes before at its previous location so we wanted to see the new location. Easy to get into because it wasn't too busy but service was very slow/easily distracted and besides my husband's Mexican platter, the food was lacking in seasoning and the creme brûlée was burnt in the middle and cold around the edges. We may give it another try, but it won't be on the top of our list anymore."

  • "We dined at Stoke's for New Year's Eve. Our waiter was attentive. However, we received our meals shortly after receiving our appetizers. Either the kitchen was working ahead of their tickets or our waiter should have delayed submitting our entree orders. We like quick service so I guess I shouldn't complain, but it felt like they were trying to rush us out of there. The only other "issue" we had was that my husband ordered the Spicy Shrimp for dinner. He was disappointed when his "meal" arrived as it really should have been on the appetizers menu. It was a bowl of spiced oil and shrimp, served cocktail style with tortillas and a piece of crustini. Hardly a meal and way too oily, the spices settled at the bottom of the bowl of oil."

  • "My husband and I first went to the Stokes downtown and loved the food and the atmosphere. We were so excited to find out they added another location out West and were just as please with everything there. Our waitress was wonderful, the food was amazing and we had a great time! We will definitely go again and already recommended it to a few friends."

  • "FIrst time to dine at this location and decided to try based on menu offerings for restaurant week. Very impressive! So easy to make a reservation with open table and I would recommend doing that and will continue to do that in the future. Food was very creative and nicely plated with ample portions. Service and presentation felt like being on a cruise ship in the dining room. Food temperature was excellent and cooked as ordered. Parking is ample and easy although finding the correct parking lot for this restaurant was a little confusing. Impressive wine list with nice wines for ordering by the glass yet many selections of top shelf wines for the serious drinker."

  • "Bradley took care of us from the moment we were seated until our last sip of Malbec on the patio. We ordered the Bananas Fargo first,because my Dad always said, "life's short order dessert first." He was very attentive and even had the chef adjust a recipe to accommodate a food allergy. The food was well portioned and came out in a timely fashion. His suggestions were spot on and each dish was delicious. We will be frequent visitors to Stokes West."

  • "Nothing better than Sharon's enchiladas! Service is really good too"
    Dined on 9/13/2013
  • "I wasn't that impressed as a whole with Stokes. It felt very "chain" restaurant. They had a great wine and beer list but our server didn't know much about any of the drinks. They ended up bringing the beers my husband asked about so he could just "read the label for himself." We went on a Husker game night so it wasn't terribly loud or crowded, we had made reservations but they definitely weren't needed. It was a bonus though because it was easy to talk. Our food came out quickly but oddly it wasn't terribly warm. My husband had a shrimp enchilada that he just said was okay and nothing special. I had a chicken mushroom pasta in cream sauce that ended up tasting like a giant mushroom."

  • "Noise level was high, food is most always good other than the grilled salmon was a bit over cooked."
    Dined on 8/29/2013
  • "When I think about Stokes, I think about Southwest food with a bit of a kick. There are also many wood-fired, smoky menu choices. And, a nice selection of foods on their gluten-free menu. Great casual restaurant."
    Dined on 8/15/2013
  • "This was my first time at Stokes. I took a girlfriend of mine for her birthday. Due to the fact that she had her paper temp licence that everyone gets when they renew it Stokes said it is their "company policy" not to serve alcohol to those people. This was very upsetting and does not make sense since everyone gets them. She chose for us to stay because of Sharon's enchiladas (which is said to be amazement on a plate) overall it was a good experience but I will only be going back to try Sharon's enchiladas."

  • "Some of our party was late for the reservation and stokes was very accommodating. Wait staff were outstanding."
    Dined on 7/11/2013
  • "Was pleasantly surprised by the number of meatless dishes on the menu. Restaurant was a bit loud, but that was mostly due to an obnoxious group of middle-aged women at a table near the bar."

  • "The food was good but not a knockout. Had the enchiladas. The dessert was very good, with the banana foster ice cream."

  • "We had one of the specials (blackened tuna), the cabo san taco, and a cheeseburger with fries. All were very delicious and cooked to perfection. Even the hamburger was thoroughly cooked, which doesn't happen very often in these midwest restaurants for some reason. They had a nice selection of wines and beers, and the server was very helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to go back again."
