A word from Stonewood Ale House
StoneWood Ale House is the perfect balance between a classic restaurant and a great bar. Since we are independently owned, we are one of the few restaurants that still believes in that “personal touch”. Our guests love the warm stone fireplaces and cozy booth seating. They love the smell of our wood fire grill. They love our large 80 item menu filled with flavorful Slow Roasted Prime Rib, Wood Fired Specialties, Seafood & Pasta and our famous Ale House Burgers. Our menu items have won many awards in Schaumburg. We pride ourselves on having the coldest draft beer possible, served at an icy 31.5 °F! And what we pride ourselves on the most is the personal care and commitment that our guests have come to expect truly making StoneWood Ale House the place to be.

    Overall its a nice restaurant, I really liked the inside décor, its very nice! It was pretty busy for a Saturday night but noise was moderate. Lots of TV's in the bar area which was nice as the Hawks game was on when we got there. We were seated right away and the waitress was pleasant, drinks came fast as well as the appetizers, my skins were good but the mozzarella sticks were just ok. Dinner was good my pot-roast meal was absolutely delicious but, my boyfriends prime rib he said was a little to salty. Overall I give them 4 out of 5 stars.

    My wife and I have now gone here twice and kick ourselves fro not coming back more often. The food is great, plenty of TV's to catch whatever sports action is on that day and the staff does a great job. Prices may be a little higher than your usual casual dining place but you definitely get a good value for the price.

    Stonewood had a pretty good sized menu, lots of drink choices if you like craft beer. Food was very good, we had burgers all around and I was impressed, good portions, great taste. Service was solid, our waitress was very on top of things and around when we needed her. Would definitely go here again.

    Great place for appetizers or a meal. Bar can be a little loud but there is separate dining area for quieter meals. If you are a sports fan there are lots of TVs to view from all seats. Very large bar for seating at bar. Love the rail tables that allow you to sit and face the bar while eating but not sitting at bar. Have eaten there before in summer and they have a very nice outdoor area on east side so as not to be in direct sunlight.

    I ate there for lunch about 6 months ago and loved it. I had a wrap/sandwich and it was very good. I brought the family back for dinner and ordered barbecue ribs. Unfortunately they were overcooked, dry and not very meaty. They required lots of extra (cold) sauce on them. I may go back, but will stick with sandwiches or a burger.

    In my recent search for nearby brew/pub spots, we gave the Stonewood Ale House a try. Again I was mildly disappointed to find a large bar connected to a nice, but no atmosphere restaurant. This seems to be the trend, at least in the suburbs, and I'm sure it's proving to be a decent $/square foot revenue approach. For a Tuesday early evening there was a surprising number of large groups and party minded assemblages. "Ambiance" is no doubt generational and I will continue to look for a more laid back / comfortable venue that can fill my pint/plate/belly. The Sonewood did efficiently ful-"fill" those and our server was great.

    Our server was great! That's the only good thing I can say. Way too noisy, could not hear across the table. The sides were better than main course. Reminded me of an upscale Denny's. Oh, just remembered one more good thing, their Stonewood Ale's are really very good. Maybe we should have gone the bar instead of dining.

    We were looking for a restaurant in the Woodfield area where we could sit comfortably and talk with friends we had not seen in a long time. Stonewood Ale House worked great for us. I had the breaded fish tacos, which were excellent and a very generous portion size. My husband had the ribs and said they were tender and good. One friend had stake and another had the bruschetta chicken. Everyone was happy and no one left hungry. Service was good. The restaurant can get noisy and it became a little hard to talk when the place filled up. But, overall, good experience.

    Four guys ate here after a day at Arlington Park. Two of us had burgers, one had a turkey burger, and one had the pot roast sandwich. All of us thought the food was outstanding. The burgers were cooked perfectly as ordered and come with a choice of fries, chips, onion strings, or tater tots, plus some other choices. This was one of the best burgers I have ever had and THE best, by far, tater tots I've ever tasted. I would very highly recommend Stonewood for a really good casual meal. Lots of beer choices and TV's for any sporting events as well.

    We were going to be in the Schaumburg area and found thus place on Open Table. Expecting just another ok burger and beer place, we were very pleasantly surprised. Both the food and service far exceeded our expectations. We started with the pretzel sticks, which were really yummy. My husband had a burger topped with puled pork (and fries) and I had the veggie burger with their homemade habanero mix (and chips) - both were really good (though I would opt for the regular bun vs pretzel bun next time). Toss in a big beer selection, and Stonewood Ale House is a winner, and we'll definitely be back.

    Friends passing through and we wanted a quiet meal together to catch up on old times. Not expensive, quiet and good food. Hostess gave us our request and sat us in a back booth in a side room away from the Sports Bar. Got all three here. Shared mildly hot chicken wings with blue cheese, Belgian white beers, and a range of entrees which turned out to be huge, filling and tasty. Very helpful server who let us chat and chat. Pleasant meal that did the trick.

    Dined on 6/14/2014
    First time at this establishment and was a little concerned because of the location is a bit off of the newer paths in Schaumburg. Basically in front of the old Red Lobster on Mall Drive by Woodfield. I was pleasantly surprised that this ale house/brewery had a great selection of entrees that looked very tasty. I had the grilled salmon and my girlfriend had the pork chops, both were excellent. But the service from our waiter was beyond excellent. He wasn't your typical waiter, a bit timid and soft spoken but he made extra sure everything was perfect and made great recommendations. Having worked in retail for way too long, it is obvious that these employees are trained very well. Very impressed. We will be back….often.

    My husband and I have been to this restaurant once before and the food was great. We both had the chicken tenders for the starter and had burgers which were great. This time my husband tried the half rack of ribs and when they came out I took one look at them and saw that they were dry and didn't look appealing. I was correct. So I would say that it is a good burger place but wouldn't have the ribs. They looked over cooked and reheated. One last thing that really has a bearing on a review and a tip is if the waiter asks us if we would like anything else before handing us the check. That didn't happen and I was highly disappointed. I would like to go back to see if their beer can chicken is as appealing as it sounds on the menu.

    We love coming to this neighborhood hidden gem. The burgers with fresh cut fries are just the best. The BBQ ribs are great too. All the servers are friendly quick and efficient. My only complaint is that the parking can be challenging at times but there is never much of wait for a table because of how big the place is.
