    Disappointed in their signature filet. I'm a medium well guy, and the restaurant insisted they had to butterfly it. One held was rare and the second held was well. I guess I should average it out and say It was cooked to order. Potatoes were good. Disappointing creme brûlée.

    We consistentely eat at Stoney River (often take out). On Wednesday we dined in and had a fabulous experience. They have changed the menu in the last few months, but the key items are still there without adjustments -- House Salad, steaks, coffee-cured, etc. HINT: They have started cooking their steaks in buttter. Be sure to order your steak dry you don't like butter on your steak or looking to save a few calories for dessert.

    From the greeting at the door throughout our meal, the service was spectacular! Our server was very knowledgeable and made recommendations regarding apps, wines and desserts. She also had great suggestions on how best to order our steaks to bring out the most robust flavor. Cozy & casual atmosphere but food and service 5 star. Would definitely return.

    We went for a birthday celebration, wanting a really good steak dinner. Unfortunately one steak was too raw and the other too well done. Both were ordered as medium. They took the raw one back, but it still was more red than we like it when it was returned. We didn't complain about the overcooked one because we really weren't looking to make any issues. That one was ordered with their special marinade of coffee, brown sugar and molasses, but it tasted just plain over-salted and dry! Even though they tried to compensate with a free dessert, don't think we'll be going back there anytime soon. Disappointing all around.

    My husband and I have been enjoying Stoney River for many years, but we were very disappointed when J. Alexander's bought the franchise. We would not rate J.A. as high as we do Stoney River and the food quality was beginning to show it. I am pleased to see they are bringing back the Stoney River expectations. The new menus are fabulous. The onion strings are cooked to order vs. in advance. Cooking them in advance was a HUGE mistake. The table side service is always superior and Anne is one of our favorites! The only complaint we had about our recent dining experience was that the coffee cured filets were over seasoned. And the key lime pie could use more crust.

    The food was very good. The only thing I didn't like about the evening was that a lot of the people in the restaurant were dressed very casual. For the prices in the restaurant, and the really good food, I would have expected the others eating here to dress a bit better. People were in flip flops and shorts. So many people were dressed like they were at Burger King. The food was excellent, it's a great restaurant...I just wish people would dress more appropriately when going out to eat at a nice restaurant. I don't expect a suit and tie, but perhaps wear something other than flip flops and shorts

    I surprised my wife for our anniversary and as the incredible staff at Stoney River have done, they have made every occasion memorable. The food is always excellent, the wait staff is professional and accommodating and they have treated us with something scrumptious after our meal. Excellent job and a good choice every time.

    I figured it must have been my choice of entry so why upset everyone's evening by sending my soup and then steak back. I ordered the waitress very highly recommended house specialty the coffee marinated petite filet. It was awful! Medium rare was served medium. The onion soup was cold. Even the broccoli was seasoned with a very odd flavor. In my opinion the prices are not justified. Dinner for 4 including tip - $260 for 3 steaks, one fish entry with only 1 beer and 2 glasses of wine and a lemonade . Hello... The lettuce salad was $12 Will not recommend and will not go back again. Waitress was pleasant and decor was nice.

    From the valet attendant to the person clearing out plates, everyone made us feel like they were glad we were there. The bartenders asked us our names, the waitress already knew who we were and the manager stopped by to say hello. They treated us like we were special, evn though we were just another couple in along string of couples on a Saturday night. Match the service with great food and wine and that is a recipe for a memorable evening. The steaks were medium rare and the service was well done. Nice job by all.

    I really wanted to like Stoney River but I had, again, the worst "prime rib" that I have every had. It was tough and I had to almost saw through it to get it in bite sizes. I actually did something that I have never done since I was a kid. I took my napkin and took a piece out of my mouth because it was so tough to eat. The creamed spinach was terrible as the cream stuff, and I say stuff, was poured over the spinach wherever I could find something green. I'm sorry but Stoney River just can't seem to get it right anymore. Even the wine list has changed dramatically and unless you are willing to spend $225 for a bottle of wine, you are going to get something that you will regret afterwards.

    We visit this restaurant often and usually enjoy the food and service. However, this time the food was the worst we've ever had. The steak was a filet that looked more like scrap or sirloin chunk. The fish had many bones and scales left in it. Our server was new; we could tell she was nervous, but we are OK with that. Until she messed up the drink order...twice. We may try back again, but it will not be anytime soon. Sadly, we are back on the hunt for another steakhouse nearby.

    For some reason, they stuck us in the very noisy bar with the dining room wide open. My mistake, should have asked for a quieter spot. Food was excellent, as usual. Server was not very attentive and brought us the wrong bill at the end. This is still our "go-to" spot for the best steaks in the area.

    my husband was disappointed that the marsala sauce was taken off the menu. But the manager Steve went back and forth from the kitchen to our table with a substitute sauce. It turned out pretty good & the rest of the steaks & salads were the usual perfection!

    Stoney River always serves up a tender and tasty steak but our last visit proved to be disappointing in all other aspects. Our server was not good - she talked so fast she could not be understood. She also served our food too fast and was not a good listener. The crab cake appetizer was served cold. The rolls were tough and greasy as if they had been made, left to get cold, and re-fried. Filets were tender and flavorful but mine was served rare instead of medium as ordered. The hash brown potatoes were extremely greasy - I would never order them again. Stick with the au gratins if you visit this restaurant.

    we make it a point to dine "early" when we want a quiet night out. It works-the restaurant of our choice is usually not too busy, quiet and service is great. Stoney River is one our favorite places to dine. The food is always good and the staff is very friendly and efficient.
