    the Stonewood Grill is always good. What we like about it, is they take reservations and honor them. We don't have to wait. The food is excellent, and the service staff very well trained.

    The food here was outstanding. My wife and I both had beef dishes and they were mouth watering. Their Stonewood salad is very good for starters. The great thing about this restaurant is the choices. You have chef's special that remind you of home cooking, 4 varieties of fresh catch fish, multiple types of steaks along with poultry and pork choices. We received a small cake for our anniversary celebration as well. I would highly recommended this restaurant. The only negative is that you must bring your wallet!!

    The people are both pleasant and helpful. We both chose from the abbreviated menu. My wife had the beef tips on a skewer and I had the chicken picatta. The food was very well prepared and tasty. We went on a Friday and the place was full which meant it was on the noisy side. Not a quiet out-of-the-place romantic spot but a great place to meet friends and have a fun time with good food.

    This is a place that has it all -- ambiance, good food and prices, and fantastic service. It starts at the bar where they know how to mix a great martini, and ends with a meal that suits everyone's tastes. There are happy hour prices until 7 pm, and plenty of interesting and enjoyable food choices. Our waiter, AJ is worth asking for. Give it a try!

  • Good Choice for Supper Out
    DefiniteOpinionsVIP
    Dined on 6/13/2014
    Out for a "catch up" dinner for 2 couples. Food quality was good -- cedar plank salmon flavorful and moist. They would substitute veges, a plus. Nicest surprise -- during their happy hour (til 7, I think -- we were there a bit before) they offer many wines, several quite decent ($40-70+) by the glass OR by the bottle at half price. That, coupled with good service, good lighting, and low noise level, made it a really nice choice for a casual night out. Will go back

    We have been coming to Stonewood for years and always rated it one of our favorite restaurants but our last visit was very disappointing. We often order the grilled black grouper and this time it was bland and tasteless. It seemed like it was a few days old. We will return but we hope it food will be back to what we used to get.

    This is a favorite restaurant of ours, and we were so glad that they were open for lunch on Mother's Day! (They are normally only open in the evenings.) My husband, daughter, and I had a very nice time for Mother's Day with good food and a nice, relaxed atmosphere. Will certainly be back to this Stonewood!

    We like the Stickney Point Stonewood Grill for our special occasions like our recent 10th Anniversary. The food is always excellent and the waiters are knowledgeable about the menu, specials and drinks. the low lighting makes for an intimate setting and the noise level is quite low compared with most other restaurants. we have been going here for the ten years we have been together and will continue to do so. the chocolate bread pudding is our favorite dessert and well proportioned for sharing.

    My new neighbor was finally unpacking and settling in, it was her birthday and she had no family here. I thought a celebratory evening meal was a good way to start her on the path to a long and happy Sarasota lifestyle. We had good food, real conversation and it was within the confines of our diets, until the birthday cake, that is. All in all a successful way to welcome a newcomer!

    I was disappointed in the food the last two times I dined at Stonewood. The rolls and salads are excellent but the main courses have not been up to par. I tried your new spring sensation dish of shrimp polano and was very disappointed in it. My previous visit I had fish and very bland rice which was to have been rice pilaf (tasteless, same with the vegetables).
