    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!!!)

    As always, the prime rib was impeccable. The chef made alfredo (an off the menu dish) for my wife, and my daughter loved her shrimp. Thank you again. We'll be back again.

    Happened to be in town moving my daughter into college and found this next to the hotel. Frequent high end steak house for work and this was definately a pleasurable experience. The food was excellent, great appetizers and steak cooked to perfection. Decent wine list not overpriced and service was great !

    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

    I've been to this restaurant once before were my significant other and I really enjoyed the selections of steaks they provided. Really amazing steaks, let me say the coffee-cure filet mignon really hit home, delicious and the service was wonderful! Noise level was adaquate and the lemon drop mojitos are nothing to shy away from!

    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.

    We were a party of 7, everyone had some form of steak (obviously!!!). I think their coffee-cured filet mignon is the best they have to offer. The prime rib was also good. They also have a decent wine list.

    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!!!!

    i ordered a steak dinner well done. my husband dinner was fine. my dinner was cooked as i asked. well done. my dinner was sent back. i sat back and watch my husband it his dinner for about 15- 20 min. with nothing to eat. my steak came back out and was still rare inside. it was sent back. at this point its not fun to watch someone else eat. i was mad and upset. this was a special evening for us. our anniversay dinner. at first they said they would give me a desert. why would i eat that when i hadn't eat dinner yet. so we left and i hadn't eaten anything for dinner. don' t think i will be going back to there. didn't like how we were treated there. at the end the manager comes over and said he was taking my dinner off the check.

    The service and food were below average and it took so long to get that when they served my steak barely seared I didn't even send it back since I had no confidence that it would come back quickly. The manger quickly took it off the bill but the damage was done.

    This was an anniversary dinner. We had the table by the fireplace. It was 7 p.m. on a Monday evening so the restaurant was not crowded at all. We were warmly welcomed. And then...they seated a very large group with three small tots (one in an infant seat) right beside us. The infant cried and fussed the entire time we were there (well over an hour). The baby was belting it out. We love babies. But it really negatively impacted our evening. And this was not a cheap meal. Very disappointing.

    I was able to get the reservation I wanted for my dad and i on Father's Day. The only issue was when we arrived, we waited about 5 or so minutes but no one ever came to greet/seat us. I felt like the servers, bartender, runners and bus crew saw us standing there but no came over. I had to walk around the restaurant to find someone to seat us. After we sat down our waitress came right up to us. She was great, ver personable and quick. Since it was 9pm or so, changed the channel on the tv so my dad could watch Game 5 of the finals (that was a HUGE deal) so I definitely appreciated that. The steak was huge and delicious! The crab cake and salad were great as well. The portions were sized very nicely and the pricing was reasonable.

    Pleasantly surprised...good food good service and the valet parking was a plus since we are seniors and avoided walking any distance to get there. A bit pricey in my opinion...the small lobster tail at $19 was overpriced...should have been offered at a lower price when adding to the filet. Overall we were pleased with everything. The background music was ok...not overbearing

    Took family for Father-n-laws Birthday. Food was great, service was good, and everyone had a great time. Everyone commented that they liked the décor as well. Brought my 4 year old son and staff was very accommodating. Price was what we expected for a nice steakhouse (and not as pricey as some of the other two high-end places in the area). They also serve other traditional American favorites, if you don't like steak.

    I have eaten at Stoney River a number of times before, but not recently. I was very disappointed. The quality of the food was very different. I must say that the steak was very good, but the potatoes were dry and the preparation of the potatoes with caramelized onions was very different. Before it was smooth and something like potatoes and gravy. They were savory and wonderful. This time the potatoes were dry rather than creamy and had a clump of cooked onions perched on top. The drinks, which were a little pricey at $9.50 for a plain cocktail and $12.00 for specialty drinks, were very mediocre. Also, what was probably the most popular of their desserts, the chocolate ganache cake had been taken off the menu. I was totally disappointed.

    First, let me start off by saying the food and cocktails were great, 4 out of 5 easy! Table for 5 and only 1 had a questionable meal; the shrimp were a bit on the small side. But it was all good. I had a the small portion prime rib...excellent! My kudos goes to the reservation desk. We were driving in from out of state, had to pick our daughter up from the airport and be in Towson for dinner with 5:30 reservations. Our son was also meeting us there. Needless to say, with a slight flight delay and traffic we arrived an hour late. I had called to say we would be a bit late, and the staff were so accommodating. Our son arrived on-time. The seated him at our table and allowed him to wait for us to show. Many thanks Stoney River!

    Well at first I was excited that I got a same day reservations and on top of that I reserved a time a few hours away on Mother's Day so that was a pleasant surprised. Here's where my disappointment came in upon arrival and walking up to the hostess three young ladies were standing there having a conversation there was no immediate greeting I've worked in Customer Service /Relations and off the back that left a sour taste in my mouth. Also gave my name and reservation time one young lady stated ok give us a few minutes a few minutes turned into 15 minutes then I had gone back up to the hostess to check the status she gave me the same reply give her a few minutes, overall service and the food was good but the front house needs improvement.

I was sold on the customer service, and the food was just as remarkable as the service. My steak was cook just the way I asked for it and i enjoyed every bite. However, the mashed potatoes with caramelized onions stole the show they were to die for. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

    Our first visit was on Mother's Day so we did factor in the holiday and how busy it would be. The food took a really long time to come out of the kitchen but it was worth the wait. The coffee-cured filet was delicious and should be tried. Lobster bisque soup was a tad on the spicy side but tasty. Sides for entrees are very delicious especially the Augratin potatoes. Mini rolls and honey flavored butter are the best. Server was nice and attentive. We would come back and dine again.

    Went here when it initially opened, and food was very good like a high end steak house. However this last visit the food was Chili's quality with the Prime Rib prices. I have no problem with an expensive dinner, but I expect Prime Rib/Capital Grille quality when I'm paying for it.

    The waiter was good, but the kitchen made mistake after mistake which meant we didn't get our main course for well over an hour and then the steak I ordered wasn't what showed up. All together over 2hrs. Too long for our kids to sit. When all the right food was there it was very good and...the manager picked up the tab.
