    I made a reservation late Saturday for Saturday evening .... It was wonderful. We were seated within 5 minutes, we had a great booth near the fireplace and our server was very attentive! We did have a small problem - my husband's Caesar salad came out with his dinner, but at that point we just sent it back. We will definitely go back.

  • Anniversary Dinner

    My wife and I went to Stoney River for our anniversary dinner. The wait staff was extremely nice and professional - we showed up 15 minutes after our reservation (had trouble finding parking), and they promptly got us to our table. The recommended appetizers were amazing (a cheese steak style egg roll). My wife's drink tasted like straight tequila. She ordered a medium New York Strip which was overcooked and had a lot of fat on it (unusual for a NY Strip), and my prime rib - which was supposed to be medium rare - was medium to well, dried out, and the au jus sauce was very bland. Since it was later in the evening, we didn't send them back - but there are much better steak places for the same amount of money. Probably won't be back.

    Luckily I called the next day to confirm the reservation. They could not find the one I placed via OpenTable but they had no problem making one. The food was very good and in some cases unique and excellent (Coffee-Cured Filet Mignon - Wow!). The service was also excellent. It was busy for a rainy Wednesday night (a good sign) but unfortunately that made it difficult to hear the music (it sounded like it was nice music for the atmosphere - the string bass was all I could hear though). I definitely recommend this place. You can even get a seat by the fire place. We had a wonderful time...

    I had the coffee-cured filet and it was outstanding! They provided a steak knife, but I probably would have only needed a butter knife. My husband had the prime rib and it was also very good! We were approached as soon as we were seating and the food came out at a very reasonable pace. We can't wait to go back!

    From arrival to seating service was spot on. I usually don't say this about steak houses however this was of the 1st steakhouses I've eaten in over the years that I did not hae to add anything to i.e. the steak sauces mushroom / onions to help bring out the flavor. keep up the good work.

    The restaurant is in Towson Mall and there is free valet parking. The restaurant is roomy and comfortable. Both factors were very important to us since we had a grandma in a wheelchair with us. The appetizers were good, but caloric. The lobster bisque was OK. Knowing that we were going to be eating heavily for dinner, we ordered entree salads. Mine was very garlicy and not the most exciting salad. The other salads were ordinary and the chicken very caloric. Grandma had a prime rib sandwich and seemed much happier than those of us eating rabbit food. Lesson learned--when in Rome, do as the Romans do. We will be back, and we'll get the steak!

    I went to Stoney River, once with my boyfriend and once for my 21st birthday. Both times, the setting was relaxed but also upbeat, which sounds odd but it was a wonderful combination. The food is always so delicious, and it is a perfect place for a group night out, or a romantic dinner for two.

    This is the perfect spot to a satisfy craving for steak. Four of us ordered various cuts of steak, all cooked to various degrees of "doneness" & everyone was pleased with their meals. Service was very attentive-water glasses were kept full & questions regarding ingredients were answered quickly after our waiter consulted with the kitchen. We would definitely return to eat here again.

    The food was ok, unfortunately flavorless, but the service was not the best (lemonade took longer than a Manhattan to come out) and the price was VERY expensive for a steakhouse in a mall. Here's a tip - the au gratin potatoes are VERY dry, not creamy at all, so get the mac and cheese instead.

    Stoney River was a perfect date night for us. We had three requirements for a enjoyable evening out: great good, great atmosphere, and great service. And, Stoney River delivered on all three. We are definitely Stoney River fans. It's our "go to place" when we want to have a great experience as a couple, as a family, or with friends.

    Love Stoney River though have to say we have only eaten in the bar area. I am a self proclaimed onion soup afficianado and I have to say theirs is the best I have ever had hands down! If you like onion soup you have to do yourself a favor and try theirs. I guarantee you will not be disappointed! Another great choice are their baby back ribs. Not only are they fall off the bone delicious but they have this wonderful grill barbecue flavor that is fantastic! One thing I do not like is their little fried onion balls of dough. That is what you will get when you ask for bread. They could definately improve on that. Look forward to visiting again soon!

    I've been here before and the food was ok. This time the waiter was nice but had on way to much cologne. I left with a headach from his strong smell. The bread that he brought to the table was cold and my food was lukewarm. The bill was 100.00 for 2 ppl and it wasn't worth it.

    The service at Stoney River is definitely hands down the reason we continue to visit this restaurant. Although its on a larger scale the dining experience is cozy and quaint. Our waiter last Friday evening was amazing...very attentative...did not waiver on concessions with regard to small changes to the menu (side items that come pre-selected)....very in tune to our dining needs. The manager on staff was also very kind and attentive which is rare....because they are usually out of site, he was very hands on and made his presence known....but not in an overnbearing way....you could tell he cared about everyones dining experience. As always the food was impeccable! Thank you again for such a lovely establishment and wonderful employees!

    I was in Towson, MD for a wedding and one of the highlights of my trip was dining at Stoney River Legendary Steakhouse, we ordered the Whiskey Shrimp, Steak Burgers, Border Pasta and the Shrimp Platter all dishes were cooked to perfection and from the bar we ordered the Grayson Chardonnay, Rockefeller Vodka, Lemon Mojito and the Angels Revenge my guests thoroughly enjoyed their drinks. I wanted to thank our server Joshua for the excellent dining experience and for recommending the entrées and drinks. We look forward to visiting Stoney River on our next visit to the East Coast.

    We were somewhat skeptical because of the reviews we saw online; however, we're glad that we did not allow those reviews to keep us from visiting Stoney River of Towson. We were celebrating our 47th wedding anniversary and had received a gift card to Stoney River. We were very pleased from the moment we walked through the door. We were made to feel very special from the seating in front of the fireplace to the cake and candles with our after dinner coffee. Our server was excellent and really knew his business from the appetizers to the winelist. The food was very delicious and cooked to order (fresh, fresh, fresh!!!)

    We visited Baltimore this past weekend and had such a wonderful experience at this restaurant that we had to write about it here to let people know and to publicly thank the restaurant! It's very difficult (in fact, almost impossible) to find a place that our middle daughter can eat because she has severe life-threatening food allergies, but we called ahead and were told that Stoney River has a scratch kitchen and could accommodate her/us. Well, the manager (Mehrez Ayari) could not have been more attentive or helpful. He supervised the preparation of her meal and when she tasted it, she thought she was in heaven. All of our meals were delicious and perfectly prepared. Thank you Mr. Ayari... you're a class act and you made us all very happy!

    For a restaurant located in a mall. We were expecting a chain dining experience. The wait staff was new but knowledgeable. The hostesses needed some help. They tried, but we're as pproachable as a clique of high school girls. The steak frites were well prepared and cooked to order. The cowboy steak wads the clear winner! Do try the steak ala Oscar, it is worth the extra cost. They do have a speciality drink menu that far surpasses a typical chain restaurant's offerings

    Party of 4/2 of us had prime rib, one had the Legendary Filet & one had the Coffee-Rubbed Filet. All had appetizers including a Caesar salad, Spinach Dip, Shrimp Cocktail & Crab Cake. They must have been good, because all conversation stopped until appetizers were finished. I had the prime rib, which I get 95% of the time. I also asked for fresh grated horseradish on the side. While I am not a big beef eater, Stoney Creek's Prime Rib wins me over every time. My husband is hooked on the coffee-rubbed filet. Service was pleasant & attentive without being over-bearing. Manager visited our table to greet us & check on food and service. free valet parking is also a plus.

    Perfect location if you are looking to enjoy a quiet lunch away from the mall crowds. My husband and I both had the steak burger. It was extremely flavorful and cooked to our liking. The French fries were hot, crisp and salty...delicious. Our server was a bit too serious, almost expressionless. If you provide bread, don't ask if I want it, just deliver it and if me glass if my soda empty and I am half way through my meal, don't ask if I want a refill, just deliver that as well. I would go back.

    The restaurant is beautiful and the blue cheese chips and tomato mozzarella salad were awesome! The steaks, however, were a little disappointing. My husband got the rib-eye and found it a little too salty for his taste. I got the 7 oz petit filet and, even though the center was pink, had trouble cutting through the crunchy outside. It tasted good but not sure it was worth the $32 I spent on it. I think, if we went back, next time I might try a different steak and see if it is any better. I have heard other people rave about this restaurant's food so maybe we just chose the wrong thing. Good service although our particular server was a quiet talker and it was hard to hear him over the music. But he was prompt with our orders.

    A friend recommended Stoney River and I'm glad I took her advice. The food was truly amazing!!!! I was concerned about filling up on the bread but it was too irresistible. And their cinnamon butter is to die for!!!! The prime rib was melt in your mouth delicious and cooked to perfection. I had the double baked potatoes and I've never had some yummy potatoes in my life. Nice and creamy and seasoned to perfection. A bit pricey but DEFINITELY worth the money!!!!
