    I can’t express enough my gratitude on the excellent service that we had on Saturday 10/18/14. The ambiance and services was superb. My entire party raved on the exceptional service that both waitress displayed during our dining experience (26 Guest 2 Waitress) The chef and kitchen staff preparedness as well was very outstanding and the food was delicious! It was a first time visit to Stoney River Legendary Steakhouse for many of our guest and we all are looking forward to returning again.

    We had a wonderful experience. Our waitress. Carla was on the spot for every need with a very gracious and warm smile. The restaurant called several hours before our reservations and asked if we were celebrating any special occasion thinking they might take note and do something special, but they didn't. Which left me wondering why they asked?

    While visiting our son at the Naval Academy in Annapolis his one request was to celebrate his birthday at Stoney Rivers for steak. The food was fantastic and the steaks melted in your mouth. They were so tender. The staff was very pleasant and friendly even with it being a very busy night for them.

    This was great! The steak was delicious. The portions were more than enough. The ONLY improvement {?} would be the mashed potatoes. While they were very good, we'd have preferred a) a selection for "plain" mashed potatoes. Not with onions or garlic. And have them be "homestyle", creamier with a bit more cream and butter. But a fantastic meal overall.

    We had reservations and still had to wait 30 min. The food was poor. They served my wife and didnt even explain unitl we ask why she got something different then what she ordered. Thier response was "yea sorry it would take 30 min to get you the dish you wanted". I ordered a steak med well and got well done (burnt). We only drank water and we could not even get our glasses filled. they set empty for 20 min. and ended up asking another waiter to fill them. Overall I would say dont waste your time or money.

    We were a party of 2. We were seated close to the kitchen so we could see everything that was going on. Two parties (8 and 5) were seated a good 5 minutes after us. We waited 15 minutes to get our salads. After we were done we waited about 20 minutes and still no entrees. The tables around us were served. We were told our order was being plated. Another 15 minutes went by and we asked for the manager to cancel our order. The manager gave us the same story (plating our food) but we saw nothing being plated. He was not apologetic or concerned. He did way all charges for what we did eat. We will not be back.

    What a surprise to find such a wonderful restaurant in a shopping mall. The ambiance is very much like that of an upscale steak house and the service was exemplary. Try the filet that is marinated in coffee, brown sugar and molasses--so good! And, the sweet potato casserole was to die for! This was our first time dining here and we have found a new favorite. I would recommend this restaurant without question.

    I ordered the petite lodge filet. Although the temperature was perfect, it was overly salty. The twice baked potato was not what I expected. I thought that the potato would be served in its own skin. The service was less than adequate.

    Sunday @ 600pm. Fireplace couch seating was available and we were sat there immediately, which was a nice surprise (COMFY). Total meal was a bit under $100 and we drank sodas. Rolls came quick, which reminded me more of donut holes. Had the ahi tuna appetizer that was battered, but not represented well in menu. It was pretty good but not great. My wife ordered the petit filet mignon, which she enjoyed. It was tender as it should be and had good flavor. A bit more spice than she likes. I had the bone in ribeye, which was an excellent cut though over spiced...though the menu did say "highly spiced" I believe. Next time I will tell them to tone it down to make the steak excellent. Service was excellent and we weren't rushed.

    We had a lovely birthday dinner celebration at Stoney River. It started off a little rocky as we had to wait about 20 minutes beyond our reservation time but the rest of the evening went well. Chef sent out complimentary appetizers. Everyone enjoyed their entrees. The ribeye was flavorful and perfectly cooked. Dining room is very eclectic with mix of regular tables, high tops and couch seating.

    We eat at Stoney River on special occasions because of the good menu, and friendly service. It gets pretty noisy during the evening rush hour, but not as bad as other restaurants. We usually come in early and leave just as the crowd starts arriving.

    "Coffee" steak was delicious, my wife's prime rib was more rare than medium rare as she had wanted. Miscommunication with waitress (it was late) resulted in no blue cheese on wife's steak as she had wanted. And finally, sautéed spinach was a bit too under cooked. Still, was an excellent first time experience. Will go again.

    We stopped with friends for dinner at Stoney River following a Navy football game and we had a great experience. The service was exceptional. It was very busy and I was so glad that I had made reservations via Open Table. It is definitely a special occasion type of place because it is pricey. The food was very good - with some awesome little dinner rolls - that are hard to stop eating. My husband said his filet was terrific. I had the Asian salmon - very generous portion - fabulous flavor. Overall - it was outstanding and we would definitely return.

    I went to stoney river because the birthday boy had heard about it but never been. I really wanted him to have a great time because he works very hard as a chef and almost never eats a nice meal for himself. The hostesses were extremely helpful. Our waitress was also nice. Our orders came out in a timely manner, fresh and beautifully arranged. The managers were also great. We saw several during our dinner there and they were attentive and happy to fetch anything we needed to make the date exceptional. We will definitely be back. Every member of their team helped make the night great!

    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.

    I made reservations and still had to wait as the restaurant stated they had a lot of walk-ins. As I waited, I noticed I was the only one waiting. Finally, the hostess walked out from her stand and very loudly called my name, Francis, instead of Mr. Hinton (note- I am the only one waiting where she directed my name.) This is the first restaurant that has called me by my first name and this hostess appeared to be upset about working this day.

    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.

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.
