    From appetizers to main course, everything was out of this world! Steak was tender and juicy, very flavorful, shrimp were fresh and succulent, asparagus was perfection! I had the bruschetta and tavern wings as an appetizer and they were both outstanding! All ingredients were fresh and flavor was out of this world! My husband and I were full til the morning after lol. Will definitely be visiting again!

    We made our online reservation at 7:20 for a 7:30 table for 2 on our way to the restaurant instead of calling ahead. When we arrived we were informed that the wait was 65 minutes. I informed the staff that I had just made an online reservation for 7:30 and was confused. I was informed that they had to cancel that reservation and the online reservation system had been cancelled for the evening. In the next 20 minutes of waiting, 6 more tables of 2 were seated by people not waiting when we arrived. At this point my 38 week pregnant wife decided she had enough and we left. We have eaten here numerous times before and have always had a good experience, but this time was very sub-par and very disappointing.

    I recently celebrated my birthday at Stonewood Grill. The food was delicious and our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. The menu items were a bit pricey, so I will probably only return to Stonewood Grill for Holidays or special Occasions. During my most recent visit, I ordered the Filet Mignon and it tasted amazing! My only wish was that the restaurant offered a better bread selection. No one at our table of 6 touched the bread with the fruit pieces in it.

    I'm new to the area and took a friend here that was visiting me from out of town. Nice place but the food I had was just okay - my chicken was rubbery and the spinach had no flavor. The service was very good and the place has a nice atmosphere, nice bar area.

    On 9/17 We enjoyed a lovely dinning experience at Stonewood. Amber,our waitress was patient, responsive shared her smile with us and her dinning recommendations were prepared to order. Our drinks were cold and correct and served timely. The ambiance is tasteful the bar was lively and adult attended. I made my reservation with Open table needed to change the time once and all was completed in seconds. I especially liked sending invitations to my guest through email. I will continue to be a customer for both Stonewood and Open table.

    The service was outstanding and the food was even better. If you're a steak person, try the prime rib - delicious. The chicken dishes on the $15 menu were excellent according to my guests. Salad was large and had very fresh ingredients.

    We were not new to Stonewood Grill, but had not eaten there for over a year. We found great improvement in service especially; the food was always good there, but the menu had become stale after awhile with the same items over a long period of time. Now they offer a great many varied dishes; we tried several and none were found wanting in any regard. Prices were competitive and overall a good value.

The waitress was friendly and told us the size of the portions, the lighting was not too dark and not too bright, and the food was delicious. I would definitely recommend this place to couples who are seeking a romantic restaurant.

    We dined at Stonewood Grill to visit with some good friends and it is close to home. It's a great place to dine and be able to converse with other people. I ordered the lamb chops with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was delicious. My wife had the Crab Cheese crusted Mahi Mahi which was also delicious. Our waitress Amber was very courteous and helpful.

    Dined on 7/31/2014
    We believe this is a beautiful, quality facility with real potential. Like many, however, their hostess sets a questionable first impression with less than a cheery, professional demeanor. Presentation of the food was very nice with good to excellent flavor. The real downside is total cost of experience. Our table of four ran more than $200 after an 18% tip. Although we enjoy some of the finer, more expensive restaurants in larger cities this is simply more than expected from a small town (Brandon) establishment.

    The service was excellent, the food was decent, my steak was excellent cooked,my wife found her plate not as exciting neither an experience, Also a piece of bad patch ofpotato found its way to her mashed potatoes. We did not alerted the waiter as were having a great time, again the waiter was excellent and overshadowed that episode. for an anniversary dinner, it was good pick. As for myself I would return but for my wife, maybe some other time.

    Have been going to Stonewood since it opened! I feel that over the years the quality of the food has gone downhill. There is nothing special on the menus that you can do really well! I most recently were at the restaurant on Father's Day and again on the 4th of July. Had fish for Father's Day. It was just so so. Got the steak kabob on the 4th and it was terrible. Fatty, overlooked! Just plain disappointing. Not know if I'll come back????
