    Overall our meal was really good, however, my filet came out way over cooked and my husband's au gratin potatoes were served cold. Our server was so busy with a big party that he never checked on us after the food was delivered until we had pushed our plates aside. I didn't eat much of the steak but it was still good and we heated up the potatoes for our breakfast the next morning. Definitely try the whisky shrimp and the lobster bisque. We will go back again and give them another chance, we really enjoyed our night.

    The food was very good. My wife had a ribeye steak and declared it very good. She had the house salad with vinaigrette dressing, and I had the baby kale salad with vinaigrette and both were excellent! We also had an appetizer and Stoney River does a free dessert of Fudge cake. All were excellent. Overall our server was very attentive and made suggestions that helped make our night out wonderful. It is pricey, but it is a good place to go for a special occasion.

  • surprise charge for b-day desert
    steaklover
    Dined on 10/7/2014
    food is always great, service was not so great: 1) ordered beer, wait staff spilt 1/2 on floor while pouring into the glass (enjoyed 1/2 glass of beer...), 2) asked for a box multiple times, and 3) could not believe this - daughter told waitress it was my wife's 50th b-day and our anniversary, could we have a "surprise desert", we were charged for the desert.... I would not complain, but would have thought a $8 desert would have been complimentary on a $250 dinner bill. again, food is great as always, but will not be going back to this location due to service (maybe my expectations were too high....)

    AtlantaNative
    Dined on 10/5/2014
    Steaks still very good, but service nothing like it used to be a few years ago. Server & manager virtually ran by table, showed no real interest in service with only about 6 tables seated. Late Sunday afternoon meal, bartenders were cleaning bar with strong-smelling cleaner, hostesses/waitresses on the floor cleaning front door with metal cleaner. Another male waiter referred to ladies cleaning as slaves, very poor taste. For the money, the food was good, but so disappointed in everything else, will not return. Many other steakhouses with as good or better food with much better service.

    Ambiance was expected. An outdoor feel but nothing that stands out as special. Visible fireplace but very few guests are able to appreciate it based on table location. Mostly dark dining area that was comfortable but noisy. Must be inexperienced wait staff 1) the staff was so eager to every our need that they would not leave us alone long enough to complete a conversation 2) do not order appetizers at the same time as the entrée. Timing of receipt for both was way to close for me. This tells me our wattress is inexperienced. The food was very good in both quality and taste. I can't be certain but it appears that each item is specifically prepared from scratch. I can tell that the au gratin potatoes were, in fact, made by hand. Overall, yes.

    Saturday my husband and I were both disappointed. The waitress recommended two mixed drinks and both were very small and definitely not worth $12 each. We ordered an appetizer that was good but it didn't arrive until after we had our salads. I ordered a filet medium well and the waitress said they would have to butterfly it in order to get it medium well. I've gotten steaks at JAlexanders and other nice restaurants well done or medium well and it wasn't butterflied. I asked if I could just wait longer but have the filet whole and medium well. She said she would tell the cooks. It came out medium definitely not medium well. For $140 we've had better meals and paid a lot less.

    Sadly, Stoney River is not what it used to be. For more than 10 years, this has been our "go to" restaurant for special occasions. The food and service were always top notch. NOT ANYMORE! The menu has changed and the wait staff was indifferent. The creamed spinach side dish was so sweet that it tasted like some weird, spinach flavored dessert. The ribeyes were thinner than normal, they lacked the usual signature seasoning that we expected and were not tender at all. The waiter seemed annoyed that we did not order wine or cocktails. When told that we did not want to order an appetizer, but instead order our dinner, he walked away and did not come back for about 10 minutes. Honestly, I've had better food and service at Longhorn.

    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.
