    My wife and I were suprised that Stoney River has changed their steak recipe and no longer use the coffee seasoning they once did. Although their steaks are still good, they're ordinary and have lost the unique flavor that was Stoney River's speciality. I can't understand why they would want to change something that made them unique and turn toward being ordinary. Nice atmosphere, excellent service but for the same cost of Ruth Chris, I'd rather eat there now.

    We visited this restaurant over Labor Day weekend, and it was amazingly good. The service was attentive without being overbearing, and the food was outstanding! My wife had the burger, and two of us had steaks. All were cooked perfectly and delicious. For dessert, we split the chocolate cake, which was a generous portion ready for sharing. We sat in front of the open kitchen, but the noise level was not an issue. We had a great dining experience and cannot wait to return. Thank you!

    Another of many good experiences with Stoney River's service and food. Its quite a surprise to enter the restaurant from the busy mall you'll find Stoney Rivers atmosphere is much calmer, slower paced. If you like steak this is the right place for you. The seating is spaced just right so you're not bumping into other dinner's and you aren't hearing there conversations.

    I had a craving for an excellent steak so I decided to take my family to Stoney River. All our steaks were cooked to order, which is very rare to find (no pun intended). I always order my steaks medium rare which should be warm through the middle with a hint of red. Most of the center of the steak should be pink. The sides should be well browned, the top and bottom charred to a dark brown color. This steak should have a firm surface but soft in the middle. This was exactly how the steak was served! If you call yourself a steakhouse, it is naturally expected that you know how to cook a steak. Stoney River certainly knows how to deliver an excellent steak!

    Stoney River is an excellent place for a quality dinner. The food is always perfectly prepared and presented. We have never gotten beyond the steak choices on the menu because they are fantastic, and it is a nice touch that a choice of potatoes is included. We also are big fans of the little donut-y rolls with honey butter. We usually round out our meals by splitting one of the enormous salads (love the wedge!) and an equally huge dessert. The wine menu also offers nice choices. All in all a great choice for a cut-above-ordinary dinner out.

    I have never been dissapointed at this restaurant. It is absolutely fabulous. I love the ribs, steak and those french fries. If you want to be sure that your dining experience will be exceptional then make a reservation for at this restaurant. My kids are picky teens but they really like this place. My mother comes to town and always wants to dine here during her stay. The staff is so professional and attentive. One of my top five restaurants in the DC, MD, VA area.

    This place is LOUD! The couch seating in front of the gas fireplace is neat but very uncomfortable to eat on. Also the location is odd as couches would be better suited in the bar area than in the dining room. They should be replaced with a set that has a shallower seat cushion so it'll be more comfortable than using pillows. The decor is the new contemporary standard: clean lines, dark colors and dimly lit (I had to use my flashlight app just to read the menu). The dress code isn't necessary because there were patrons wearing jean shorts and T-shirts. Now for the steaks. I had the Ribeye and it was perfectly done. The mushroom side was delicious as well. The only complaint I have was the amount of pepper in everything: far too much!

    This is my second visit to Stoney River. I am not normally a red meat eater; however, Stoney has a Filet Mignon that is great. They marinate it in molasses and coffee. The ambience is very sophisticated and elegant. My remaining party really enjoyed their steaks and I can say the entire dinner was outstanding from the appetizer to dessert. This will become a mainstay for me when I wish to eat a steak.

    This was our first time dining in at the Stoney River Legendary Steak Restaurant in Annapolis. I booked a table ahead for our Anniversary. The food was outstanding, the service was outstanding and the atmosphere was great! What a gem that we didn't even know existed. We will be going back again. P.S. order the Tenderloin it was very tender and full of flavor.

Most importantly, the food was very good, even one of our family members had to send something back, it was taken care of graciously. I look forward to my next visit.

    Stoney River has become a go to restaurant when we have a desire for good steak and are in a region that has a Stoney River location. On a recent vacation we were driving from Virginia to Baltimore to fly home and were thrilled to find this location in Annapolis. We went home with very happy tummies.

    We went to Stony River for our anniversary. Our server was very friendly and courteous. My husband ordered the steak and loved it, even more then he loves the steaks at Lewnes Restaurant. In fact, he says he wants to come to Stony River rather then go to Lewnes Restaurant. My daughter ordered the prime rib and also loved that. This also is her favorite restaurant. I ordered the tomatoes with the cheese and basil. It was light and perfect for me. We will definitely be going back to Stony River. Two thumb up.

Specials, steak, prime rib - all excellent and delivered together - desert (along with a birthday comp desert) also great -- overall outstanding time and would definitely go back!

We dined in the Executive Room, which provided a little extra privacy. The food was excellent and we found the portions size to be more than enough. We look forward to dinning there again soon!

    We've been here a few times before. The coffee cured steak is great. The management as changed, I believe, since the last time we were there. The food was still great, but the service was just okay this time. It was clear that she wasn't really listening to us- evidenced by the extra questions as well as another drink even though my boyfriend said that he was done because he was driving. It was a slow Sunday night on Memorial Day weekend so maybe that's why the food seemed rushed out as well. Although, that could have been the waitress and not the kitchen. Overall it was still a pleasant evening with delicious food and drinks.
