Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Third time going to Stony River and it was amazing as always! Love the crab cakes and the coffee-cured filet mignon! I would highly recommend this place for a romantic and/or special occasion!"

  • "I have been a frequent visitor to Stoney River over the years, but unfortunately with my last visit, it will most likely be my last. The prices have increased to the point of ridiculous and the salad I ordered was half the size as it was one month before and at a price of $21 for a salad, it should have been at least a dinner-sized salad. Wait staff and management continues to be excellent as always, but they have priced themselves out of the market as far as I'm concerned. I also noticed I must not be alone in my assessment as in the past this restaurant was always crowded, every table filled with people waiting in the lobby and when were were there for dinner at 6 p.m., the restaurant was mostly empty."

  • "The server, and meal were very good. My wife's filet was over cooked, the manager removed the price of the filet from the bill. That is customer service. We will go back."

  • "Overall, I was very disappointed with my experience here. Based on the cost of the food I was expecting much more. The waiter highly recommended the bone in rib eye. It was incredibly tough, fatty and had tendons through out the steak. The skin on the baked potato we ordered was so tough it was inedible. The broccoli side dish that came with the steak was room temperature at best. A drink was ridiculously priced at $10!! Sadly, the best part of the meal was the bread and butter served as we sat down. I have been to Ruth's Chris and Chicago Prime and this place isn't even in the same planet."

  • "My husband and I used to go to this place 1-2 times per year for the most special of occasions. Our nearby location closed and it took us about 2 years to finally make it back. We had reservations and were seated in a lovely, romantic location at a 4-top right by the fireplace. The server was stellar advising on wine choice and prompt with food delivery. LOVE the rolls with sweet butter, the lobster bisque, lodge filet, sweet potato mash and blondie brownie dessert. You must try all of these - NO KIDDING! Steaks are melt in your mouth and actually come with a potato side (unlike those other steak houses that sell pricey steaks a la carte). We'll be back for our next special occasion!"

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary here. We both ordered the coffee cured filet mignon. It was delicious. The best steak either of us has ever had. We also had the burgundy button mushrooms and twice baked potato casserole. Both to die for. The crab cake for our appetizer was also delicious. I would recommend Stoney River to anyone who wants a great steak!!!!!! Our waitress was wonderful as well. When I made our reservations on-line I stated it was our 10th anniv. We declined dessert, but she brought out a piece of chocolate cake with 2 candles for us to blow out. How incredibly sweet of her. Not to mention the cake was scrumptious!!!"

  • "Since the changed ownership the restaurant has gone downhill. They've eliminated a few favorites that people in our group always liked to order. They've cut back on their wine list. Living in the neighborhood we were always a frequent diner as a couple or with a group of friends-nit anymore. It's been over a year since our last dinner so we thought we' d give it another chance. Not everyone was pleased so it may be awhile before we try again."

  • "My husband and I dined here on a Tuesday for a random date night. The rolls are absolutely amazing - almost like donuts! My husband had a glass of Pinot Noir he thought was delicious. He ordered the "Cowboy Style" bone-in ribeye, while I ordered the trio of filet medallions (both of us prefer medium rare), with the garlic mashed potatoes as a side. Everything came out perfectly cooked and delicious. We then ordered the Chocolate Chip Blondie for dessert to share, and it was absolutely huge! So tasty - reminded us of Chili's retired Paradise Pie, which was our favorite dessert. We will definitely be back in the future when we want a good steak!"
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "We had reservations and were seated immediately even though the restaurant was very crowded. They seated us in a small room in back, which was nice as the tables in the bar area are very conversation challenged. Our server, Heidi, was outstanding. She knew the menu very well, and was able to answer any questions. She was attentive without being bothersome. One thing that I really liked was that she clearly mentioned the prices on all the specials for the night. Almost all restaurants make you ask or surprise you with the prices. The manager was also very visible and stopped by many tables to check on the patrons experience. The food was excellent, and the wine prices were reasonable. We will definitely return. "

  • "The service is a little overwhelming, but I like. Good bar service, and food is quick, hot and very good. The burgers seem to be best. Dark and woody inside, nice bar seating. "

  • "I took my husband for his birthday. The hostess and waitress were helpful and friendly, the service was great. The steaks were cooked perfectly as ordered and my husband (a steak aficionado) loved his - also nice that the sides were included. I was interested in the filet marinato, which the waitress described as medallions - warning bells went off as I recalled other reviewers saying they were small and overcooked. I went for the lime chicken instead. The chicken was tasty, not due to the lime which I couldn't taste, but due to the salt which was overwhelming. I would not order it again. The garlic mashed potatoes helped subdue the salty chicken and the broccoli was fine. My friend enjoyed her lobster bisque and caprese salad."

  • "One of our six received her dinner entree which had one hot item, one luke-warm item and one totally cold item. Manager was called and immediately had the dinner replaced and the guest was "comped". Another of the six had a cold potato item, which was replaced. Lighting could be improved. Rather dim, difficult to read the menu. "

  • "I've been to Morton's, Ruth's Chris, McCormmick & Schmick's, Landry's, Gene & Georgetti's, Sullivan's, Wildfire & others. From a consistency and taste standpoint, I think Stoney River is my favorite. The coffee cured filet is to die for. I still miss Jeff, the former manager at the Deer Park location. They should never have let him get away. I bit noisy this time (we sat by the bar) but still a great experience. "

We would definitely go back. Always consistently good experiences when I visit the Deer Park, IL location."

  • "I've been going to Stoney River for years now. My last two visits I've not been as impressed. The shrimp cocktail tasted like jewel shrimp. The lump crab cake used to be fresh crab lumps, now it is a fried crab cake that lacks a lot of flavor. My filet mignon this time was charred and tasted burnt on the outside. They also forgot to bring us bread which was given to every other table. When you're paying good money you expect a certain level of service and quality. Unfortunately their food quality especially seems to be going downhill. "
