  • "One of the best steaks I have ever had! Very pricey, but the bone-in ribeye is fabulous, cooked perfectly, very tender and tasty."

  • "Their coffee marinated steak is as good as any Ruth Chris steak. Portions are large and potato dishes are wonderful."

  • "Service and atmosphere was great. We chose this restaurant for dinner celebrating our 30th anniversary. Everyone there from the greeter to the manager and of course our server wished us a happy anniversary. They went to great lengths to make it special including a complimentary dessert complete with a candle! Great food, genuine service, worth the money for special occasions."

  • "Went for my birthday with my parents and friend. Wasn't crazy about where we were seated by the window & the table behind us was pretty loud. Other than that, the food was great and the service was good too! It's expensive but it's good for special occasions."

  • "Stoney River is that special restaurant that has a great meal, with great ambiance and service. A perfect place for a special occasion."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Although I've been to Stoney River many times, the food this night was markedly the best. Sad to see the steak salad was not on the menu but choose the cabin filet and au gratin potatoes instead with Creme Brulee to top it off. So, so good. It is a little pricey, but worth it!"

  • "Been dining with Stoney River for years. This was my best meal yet. The steaks were outstanding and service was terrific. Will definitely go there again soon."

  • "My wife and I had an enjoyable meal on a Saturday evening. The portions are huge, so plan on taking some home with you if you have an average appetite. The service was uneven but did not distract from our evening. Our waitperson was aware of the situation and offered us a complimentary dessert, which was quite good. I would come again and recommend this restaurant to others."

  • "Our server was amazing and the food was delicious and the portions generous."

  • "While the restaurant came highly recommended, it left a little to be desired. The ambiance was superb. The staff was polite. The food was very good; however, there were 2 of us (drinking NO alcohol) and the tab (with reasonable tip) almost hit $150. This was not a $150 meal. It was on a higher scale than O'Charleys, Applebees, or Ruby Tuesdays, yet it was still a steakhouse. And the atmosphere was wonderful, yet when my wife and I mentioned that the sun was glaring right into our eyes, the waitress responded by telling us that this has been a common complaint, then she laughed, then she left. There was no offer to reseat us, just a jocular retort. Save your money. This is a special occasion place only, when money doesn't matter."

  • "We arrived and were seated within 2 minutes. Our server Russell was great. Always there when needed but never in the way. My wife and I both ordered steaks and they were cooked just like we ordered them. They were tender and very flavorful. My only complaint would be the french fries Looked and tasted like they were from a fast food restaurant. It was our anniversary and they offered us a free desert which was a nice touch. Russell suggested the key lime pie. Great suggestion. It was the best key lime pie we had ever tasted. If you go don't leave without trying the key lime pie. Thanks Russell and the rest of the staff for a great anniversary dinner."

  • "When I reviewed their dinner menu choice with the OpenTable ap it showed that they served BBQ ribs. When I tried to order the ribs I was told that they no longer sold them and the menu had changed but it was not updated on the OpenTable ap. In addition I need to eat gluten free. They did not have a gluten free menu and the waitress told me that most everything they had was gluten free. This was not true. I ordered the Ahi rolls as an appetizer and they were breaded with a tempura. I then ordered the trout and that had a coating of bread crumbs. Not a good restaurant choice if you have food sensitivities, the wait staff is obviously not trained to handle this."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "A little disappointed. Taking items we like off the menu. No baked sweet potatoes; no appetizer we always liked. Food was ok, but not good enough to keep me coming back. Too many choices to settle for a place you are not satisfied completely with. Sad because it has always been one of our favorites."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "The signature dish is tender and cooked to preference. Great augratin potatoes. Our server Juan was energetic and knowledgeable. Great evening"
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "The staff was very very attentive. We went for father's day, and it was the right restaurant for the event."

  • "Leave the babies with a sitter and enjoy a delicious, lingering meal, some great wine, super service, and the one you love."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The quality of the steaks can't be beat! The lettuce wedge salad was excellent and the Stone Puppies dinner rolls are unique to this restaurant chain. I highly recommend this for business as well as a family steak dinner experience."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "To celebrate Father's Day we took my in-laws to dinner. We had been by the place but never went inside. Very surprised. Great menu. Everything was prepared as ordered. My wife's was a bit cold but that was taken care of quickly. Our server was fantastic. Funny, quick, knowledgeable. Couldn't ask for more. My wife even wrote a note to management about how good he was. Believe he was from NY."

  • "Good Food - Good Service - Good wine list....very solid experience and very consistent; when we have had things go astray, as things do, they have been quick to correct."

  • "The Cool Springs Stoney River never seamed up to par, and certainly not as good as the one on West End. But it has gotten much better. My steak was very good. It even reviled Bob's which is one of my favorites. "
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The service was very attentive to our needs. The filets were wonderful.....cooked exactly to all parties liking....the sides were delicious! We did not have dessert but it looked very good!! We will be back! The cut & tenderness was really, really excellent!"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Pricey, yes. Not something that the average Joe can afford everyday but for that special occasion, it's wonderful. "
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Our experience was nice. Our waitress/server was friendly and informative. Being from out of state, she treated us like locals, which we liked. The food was good except our steaks could have been cooked a little more. The centers were a little too pink/red for us. We would have sent them back but we were getting full and it really wasn't a problem. "

  • "My wife and I recently celebrated our 30th Wedding Anniversary at Stoney River on the recommendation of several friends. The coffee-cured filet and the prime rib did not disappoint!! Fantastic cuts of meat. What a great meal - it was SOOOOOOO GOOD!"
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "We used to frequent Stoney River on a regular basis. But with all the new places in the Franklin, TN area we wanted to try them all. Went back to Stoney River for the first time in about a year and just was not overwhelmed with anything. The food was good but not Top of the line steak house good or very pricey steakhouse good. But what "killed" it was our server. From the moment we sat down he just seemed annoyed with us being there. We were a party of four and we decided not to order an appetizer which seemed to tick him off. We did however order salads, steaks and wine. There was no interaction, no connection and absolutely no attempt of great customer service. We expected more from SR. "
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "Steaks were great, but just not as good as Ruth's Chris. Was surprised they'd offer French fries in the menu. Service was excellent, but ambiance was not very romantic. It kind of felt like dining in one great big room. Was hoping for a more private candlelit dining experience. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We got a recommendation from friend to try Stoney river. The establishment is fancier, and business casual attire is recommended. Both the wife and I got steaks and they were cooked as ordered without having to send back. Steaks were good, but the sides were amazing. Got a house salad, au gratin potatos, and asparagus all very good. The service was excellent my water never got empty even with a picture on the table. With that being said, we weren't overly asked questions and annoyed by the server. We each got a drink which are $12, their standard price. It wasn't anything special that prompted us to order another. Overall it was a great dinner, and experience, and would happily return. "
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "I had the Hong Kong sea bass, hubs had the large filet. We had the tempura lobster tail as an appetizer. Creme brûlée for dessert. Everything was beyond amazing. Lighting was a little darker than we preferred in main dining room, but the experience was great."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "After visiting the more 'urban sheik' steakhouses in downtown Nashville I came back to Stoney River for the relaxed and inviting atmosphere. The service and food are top notch. The cocktail selection was interesting and the wine list suitable. The signature coffee cured steaks are high recommended. "
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Although we had heard about this restaurant, we had never been. We had out of town company & decided to try it. We were all please with it. The steak I got was good but not the best I've ever had. However, I will definitely return. The au gratin potatoes were to die for. They were wonderful. Service was great. "
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "First time at Stoney River, from reviews and friends expected something comparable to Ruth's Chris or Morton's. Except for price not really comparable. Part of this is personal taste, I don't like eating in a dimly lit restaurant with jazz being piped in to where I hear every single note. I did send my steak back to be warmed up, it had arrived at a temperature best described as "luke warm". Too much pepper on everything. My wife commented that we could have had better steaks at Logan's, and it would have been for half the price. Also, drinks frequently went dry. Had to wait for someone to eventually notice and ask if we would like refills. Staff needs to be trained to Cheesecake Factory standards. "

  • "Everything was very good and nice, but too many, way too many onions with the beef kabob plate. "

  • "We had a great time. Food was wonderful, ambience nice once we got moved away from the window with the sun shining right in. Staff was great. service prompt. I would certainly recommend it."

  • "Service has always been great from Hostess to food runners to wait staff. Great steaks and good value. Most Steak Houses are ala carte, but at Stoney River a Starch is included. Order a veggie to share and its more than the average person needs or wants."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This place always hits the spot. Had a nice time with my family and enjoyed our meal together. Our choices for dinner varied from Crab cakes to Cowboy Ribeyes. No one left the table hungry and the portions were more than ample."

  • "Our waitress was awesome! I can't remember her name but she was very sweet and we never needed for anything."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "This place has become more and more expensive over time. Many menu changes, not always for the better. Ex. Dropped sirloin and chocolate ganache cake. Dinner for 4 with appetizers, dessert, and drink was more than $300 with tip. Ridiculous for what it is. Service was very good and food was good overall. Frustrating they cannot get the steak temperature right. 2 of the 4 steaks was severely undercooked. Overall was decent and would come back for a special occasion."

  • "excellent food, service, atmosphere, professional staff willing to go out of their way to serve and alert to all needs - would recommend this restaurant to anyone - in fact we travel 150 miles just to dine at this particular restaurant and have done so on several occasions at least once a quarter that should say a lot in its self thanks to you and your staff for making it a excellent experience this is every time we dine there so we know it will be the same every time with the same experience makes it worth the drive "
