    Service was great, hostess was courteous and friendly, server was excellent. Food was not satisfactory. I ordered the 7 oz filet mignon, medium well. It came hard on the outside and quite red on the inside. In addition, I asked to have it topped with blue cheese and presumed the blue cheese would be melted on top of the filet. The filet came with the blue cheese sprinkled (and cold) on top of the filet instead. The side of garlic mash potato was dry.

    From the moment we arrived the service could not have been better! We were greeted warmly and as I had stated in our request we were shown a quiet booth to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. The food was absolutely wonderful!! We will be coming back to try some of the other dishes. Or we may just make a meal from the appetizers and sides. They were delicious and well portioned.

    Stoney River is one of my favorite places for a good steak. I had the bone-in ribeye and it was a perfect medium rare and seasoned well. I had the asparagus and shared the Onion potatoes, mushrooms and twice baked potatoes with others at the table. The meal was great and the service complimented it well. I had the opportunity to share this meal with some colleagues from out of town and all enjoyed it!

    I stumbled across this gem while out with a colleague. We were both shocked by our overall experience. I got the coffee coated filet which was packed full of flavor and tender tender tender. Lobster bisque was home run and worth every penny I spent.

    In the words of my husband, "I feel like we are in a drive thru." The server slammed plates down and was gone. She never just "stopped"-I'm normally not a complainer, but it was bad, especially when you're spending 100+ on a meal for 2!

    You may want to add a description of the reason for the reservation online. I wasn't able to say this was an anniversary dinner, so we were seated near several families with crying children. We're older people. :) Seriously, the noise level from the children caused us to talk more loudly. We didn't stay as long as we would have liked. Our server was spectacular and the food delicious.

    The steaks were very good, especially the coffee-cured filet, and our server was very pleasant and attentive. However, the restaurant was overbooked, so we had to wait about ten minutes even though we had a reservation, and the hostess staff was quite dismissive and arrogant. Also, with everything being wood (floor, walls, ceiling) and the open floor plan, it was very loud, even when not seated in the center of the dining area.

    Overall a great experience. Been to Stoney River several times. Always a great meal. This was one of the better restaurant meals I have had in a while. Food was great, service was top notch, and the free dessert for our anniversary served as a perfect ending to a wonderful evening. Would definitely recommend.

    We love this place for special occasions but is too noisy to hear what tablemates are saying. Some sections in the restaurant are quieter than others. If possible ask for the right side.

    This was my second visit. The first visit was great about 5 months ago. Our server did not meet expectations. She was almost polite. She recorded my order incorrectly so our entrees arrived during my salad. They took our food back to the kitchen until we were ready about 12 minutes later. My steak medallions were cooked as requested, but the 2 of 3 toppings were not very good, had to eat around them. It wasn't the worst food or service I've experienced, but I won't return or recommend.

    I reserved our table under my Open Table account but asked that our reservation be placed under the name of my guest, Kevin Hook, as it was his birthday. I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did Stoney River oblige, but my guest was greeted with warm birthday wishes on many occasions throughout our evening. Thank you for a fine evening of dining.

    Less ambiance and less upscale than we expected for the high price--more of a bar atmosphere. Too open and not romantic at all--main dining room open to the bar where televisions are playing. Reminded us more of Longhorn than an upscale steak restaurant.

    Chose Stone River because attending concert on Sunday night and too many nice steak restaurants are closed on Sunday or don't open until 5p or later. Turned out to be a great choice. We both order the Ribeye - outstanding! Waiter (Jesse) was personable and we had good conversations.His recommendations were on target. Definite repeat!

    We were very disappointed with the new menu. A couple of the items that we normally ordered are no longer on the menu. And they now do not allow changes to the sides like they use to do. It has always been our favorite restaurant, but not any more.

    Have not been to Stoney River in a while because their coupons weren't as good as they were originally buying 2 meals and getting $20 off. This time we didn't have any coupon and I had a tomato mozzarella salad and a side of sweet potato casserole. My husband had a delicious steak with asparagus. We had 3 glasses of wine between us and with the tip it was almost $90. That seemed rather high, but everything was very good, so we'll just save this restaurant for special occasions.

    Outstanding! Exceptional quality and value for the steaks and the service was equal to none ! Andy , our server, was professional yet friendly with an above average knowledge of the menu and wine list. I have been back 3 times in a row and compared to other high end "Prime Steak Houses" in the area - my experience with Stoney River is by far the best place to get an amazing steak and outstanding service - every time !

    Overall, our visit was great and food awesome. However, my husband found a plastic lid in his onion soup. They were very apologetic and offered to bring him another bowl. the manager also came by and gave us a gift card for next time. Would have preferred to be able to use it that same night but still appreciated the gesture.

    I thought the salmon was just a little too seasoned. It was very salty. For the price, I do feel as though the food I'm eating should be excellent. My husband was very unsatisfied with his side item, but our server was amazing and brought another item of his choice. I wish I remembered his name. Outstanding service! We'd go back just for the service we received.
