    The prime rib, wedge salad and scalloped potatoes were outstanding! Several in our party chose filet's, and they were tough with no flavor. That was very disappointing and the first time we had not had all meals be outstanding. We had a party of six and had asked for a table that was in a fairly quiet area. They put us in the back room, which was perfect.

    Over all good. Went with another couple. We were celebrating our 20th and 25th anniversary. The service was rushed - it was a Wednesday. Pre-dinner drinks overlapped order taking, overlapped appetizers, and over lapped the meal. We had a lot of plates and food in front of us all at once. When dinning at such a place you expect that timing to be tighter. I was asked at time of reservation if it were for anything special. The servicer information card had it on there, however, no one acknowledged the event, or "why" we were out in the first place. I was surprised by as places like this tend to be more attentive to smaller things like making sure you are comfortable and enjoying your time and their service.

    Seated immediately and drink orders taken. Waitress appeared approx 10 minutes after we sat down and took appetizer order. Appetizer served before we received water or our drinks. 1/2 way thru appetizer, drinks & water served by other waitress. Entrees ordered, wife's coffee marinated filet tasted great and perfect medium rare. My NY Strip ordered rare+ was medium to well. Returned steak and after 10+ min finally received my steak. Although rare+ the steak was stringy and very fatty. My wife requested additional butter for her baked potato, never materialized. My wife finished her meal before I received mine. Disappointing experience, waitress pleasant but reminded me of a high school cheerleader instead of a prof server. Will not return.

    The food was ok, nothing special. Pleasant, attentive service, the best part of the visit. Disappointed in the value. I expected the food(steaks) to be better, the atmosphere to be less of a neighborhood bar, and more of a steakhouse. In all of my visits it's always been a bit short of the reputation.

    My husband and I went here for a celebration and enjoyed our meal and our waitress was excellent. The manager even stopped by to chit chat. The only problem is that the prices are rather high, but that's typical of good steakhouses. May return if we have something else to celebrate.

    while Legendary in their logo - it is not in the steak. The special was nothing more than roast beef on potatoes with gravy. The filet was tough. They did have an oversized salad that you needed because you were not going to be able to eat the steak. We also ordered spinach dip which came out mildly warm and had very little flavor at all. I don't mind from time to time and at a special occasion to send the amount that Stoney River demands. But they are spending it on the help not the chef.

    This place endures! We first went there nearly 20 years ago, and it has not changed very much at all, and that's a good thing. Food is still good, service is extraordinary. we had six people, and they were very accommodating, allowing us to change our reservation almost at the last minute. It is a good place for a small group or just a couple.

    In the distant past I favorably reviewed this restaurant, saying it offered great service and served fine steaks for half the cost of a Buckhead steak house. Sadly, I cannot say this any longer. The owners, the same as own O'Charley's, have run off the professional bar and service staff with lower wages and less flexible working hours, dropped the quality of the beef and the food in general in an attempt to cater to a less discerning, more recession proof market. Well, the management is getting what it is paying for. I'll dispense with the details, but the service -- both bar and table -- was terrible. The mac and cheese was soupy, the steak overcooked. The Stoney River of old is just a distant memory.

    A friend of ours was celebrating her birthday and we decided to check in for a steak and birthday cake. This time was no different that any in the past: really good service, great steaks, and nice atmosphere (not in a rush to get you out). We suggest you try one of the horseradish or Oscar toppings on your steak both great!! Oh, and the birthday desserts were a hit. A great time was had by all.

    The filet mignon was easily the best steak I've ever tasted. While too pricey for us to dine again on a regular basis, this would be a great place to have an anniversary dinner or an extra special celebration with friends. Our server was very attentive, even though the couple behind us kept engaging him in long conversations.

    I'd like to start by saying I have wonderful memories here. My grandparents use to take me here as a kid and every bday dinner was celebrated here growing up. My husband and I ended up sitting at the bar and it was not very busy. Bartenders were nice but literally one would ask us if we wanted a drink or if we were ready to order and then the other would come right behind them 5 seconds later and ask same thing. I ordered a filet medium rare to rare & it came out medium in some parts & medium well in others. It took 20 minutes for them to bring me my dinner. My husband was already done. They didn't have a manager come & apologize. They didn't offer a free dessert or drink. Nothing. I got to eat my dinner essentially by myself.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/2/2014
    Not what I expected from this restaurant. Steak was charred on outside, au gratin potatoes sent back due to the fact they were cold (had to actually put on a different plate to send back, THEN ate most of my steak prior to getting more potatoes. And they still were not tasty), and a disappointing dessert (not as described). Overall, very disappointed in this visit especially since we were celebrating our anniversary and birthday. With the price point of this restaurant, I expected more.

    Stoney River is typically one of our favorite restaurants for special occasions. My wife and I have frequently dined there for Valentine's Day, Anniversary and Birthday dinners. This particular meal was to celebrate our 22 wedding anniversary. The restaurant was fairly empty for a Saturday night, even at the relatively early hour of 5:30 pm. We were seated promptly and the service was very good. The bread was overdone. The coffee-cured filet and baked potato were very good. My wife got the lodge filet and garlic mashed potatoes. Her filet was good, but not much different than we could make on the grill at home. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant, although we know they weren't. It was a little disappointing as we normally love SR

    As far as steak houses go, Stoney River is always consistent. Some of the best filets in town. We have visited Chops, Ruth Chris, etc and I have never changed my opinion of Stoney River. Their meat is always tender, mouth watering, and the horse radish topping is to die for. A variety of salads, which are always crunchy and fresh. We always go home with left overs because the helpings are generous. In comparison to other steak houses, they are priced well and we have always had wonderfully attentive servers.
