    I agree with other posts that meal was served WAY too fast. 3 courses in under 45 minutes. Talk about speed dining! I started to ask for it to be slowed down so we could enjoy conversation with family and friends (we were a party of 6), but figured the food would just be sitting in the kitchen getting cold or dried out under the heat lamps. There was no reason to clear us out so fast as it was a Sunday evening and the restaurant wasn't even half full. Everything was very salty, even the one person that asked for light salt said theirs was too salty. Restaurant was beautiful, ver we'll decorated with a nice enough staff, but we Will not return on any future trips to Nashville.

    We went for a birthday celebration and everything was top notch. It's pricey as all steakhouses are but not as outrageous as Ruth's Chris or Morton's and the quality was as good if not better.

    Went for a special dinner with my family. Always enjoy a great steakhouse and made my reservation weeks in advance. Was hounded with emails and called to make sure we were going to show up. Nice table, everyone friendly, knowing steakhouses make steak differently, I explained how I like my steak to the waiter. When it arrives, it looks great, not waiting for me to check it, the waiters dump and run. Mine is way too raw. Have to look for the waiter to send it back. Then the wait begins. Finally cancel my order because although it was nice that they offered to cook me a new one, my family were already near finishing their meals. They tried to do the right thing, but special moments/nights can't be duplicated. I left aggravated and hungry.

    Unquestionably one of Nashville's best restaurants for steak and now seafood. Revitalized with perfect lighting and black and white photographic art of mountain streams in East Tennessee. Service was impeccable. Now under ownership of J. Alexander's, this restaurant is giving its sister concept a run for supreme quality.

    My husband and I enjoyed very much our quiet and relaxed, wonderful evening out to celebrate our 45 wedding anniversary following a busy day. It was very nice experience dining at the Stoney River Steak House for our very first time. It began with the nice jester of the valet to greet us at the car with an umbrella, as it had started to rain as we arrived. The evening just kept getting better. Wonderful time with my husband and we both enjoyed the delicious meal.

    From start to finish, Stoney River Steakhouse was an incredible dining experience. I'm a huge fan of blue cheese and can't eat it at home due to a finicky spouse. So, dining out on business trips means I can indulge. From the perfect vodka martini with blue cheese stuffed olives, the paper thin potato chips with blue cheese sauce and finally, my coffee rubbed filet with blue cheese crust.... I was in blue cheese heaven. Every dish was prepared with fresh and top notch ingredients. I like my steak medium rare and it was done perfectly. Sublime!!My server, Trey was wonderful, attentive but not intrusive. Highly recommend!!!!

    My guy and I laughed on our way to our romantic dinner that we were 5 minutes late according to our reservations and that we would probably get a table near the kitchen or rest room. So guess where we were seated? As close to the kitchen as you could get. The dining room was almost empty at the time we got there and we were led all the way to the back to the table by the kitchen. So much for our romantic dinner. The noise coming from the kitchen was crazy. Waitress and waiters were constantly walking by us going into the kitchen. I should have asked to be moved but didn't. The waitress was great as well as the food, just didn't understand why we would be seated at the kitchen door instead of a more appropriate table. Just sayin....

    While the atmosphere and the service were both wonderful; the food was not! We had gone there for Sunday Brunch only to be greeted by a valet with a hangover who had us park our own car; OK, it wasn't busy yet and spaces were available, but still, not a great start. We were greeted by friendly hostesses but were seated in the bar, not a place I wanted to be on a Sunday morning when the place was virtually empty. The service was quick and friendly; however it went down hill from there. Our order was delivered quickly and was presented beautifully but the cherry sauce was cold on the waffles and while my steak was perfectly cooked; it was in no way 'legendary'! I have had better ribeye steaks in lesser steak houses! We won't be back...

    This restaurant was recommended to me and I understand, to each his own, but this wasn't for me. I had the whiskey shrimp which was to greasy and the lobster fritters were also greasy. The steak was fine, not seasoned really and the sweet potato casserole was fine. I did enjoy the carmellized onion mashed potatoes. Also I've never had a lemon drop but for my first these were awesome. I just expected more of flavor from the food for how pricey it was.

    We came on a Saturday night. As steakhouses go, it's pretty casual. We waited a few minutes to be seated for our reservation but had a pretty good table. We had to ask for water (after our appetizer arrived), which was pretty surprising for this type of restaurant. We were served rolls (which were delicious) after our appetizer and we were not given bread plates. The food was overall very good, steaks were excellent. The mashed potatoes were surprisingly flavorless. The creamed spinach and macaroni and cheese were very good though, although they did not include a spoon with our shared creamed spinach side. Will probably return, as the prices are reasonable for overall very good food, but would hope for better service.

    A friend recommended Stoney River to us and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and our waitress was very knowledgeable when it came to the menu and drink list. The food was absolutely out of this world. From the bread all the way down to the dessert my husband and I shared, we couldn't have asked for better food. We definitely plan on returning when we are back in the area.

    Our server could have been more attentive, there were times where I had to wait for a refill on my drink, especially on a Monday night after 9 PM. There was our party of three and one other couple in the restaurant after 10 PM. Service is usually impeccable when Anthony is working, but he was not there so we went with Logan for the first time.

    Our food was great with the filet mignon cooked to order, which was a surprise with most restaurants overcooking filets. The mashed sweet potatoes and cream spinach were excellent. I would recommend rather that setting the water bottle on the table and patrons filling their own glasses, that the waiter/waitress should stop fill the drinks. Overall my wife and I had a great meal.

    We let the restaurant know when making our reservation that it was our wedding anniversary and we were trying to make a concert after dinner. They did everything to accommodate us! The complimentary valet was quick and courteous on the way in and the way out. We were seated promptly upon arrival and service was fast without making us feel rushed. We're still talking about the coffee-cured filet mignon and the potatoes au gratin - highly recommend this as a meal! We even had time for dessert, which they gave us on the house for our anniversary! Overall a fantastic dining experience.

    We've been to Stoney River about three times in the last nine months. It is a very good place for a nice dinner, but the service has been lacking the last two times we've been there. It feels like each server has too many tables to take care of, so each one suffers. We were seated for about 7-10 minutes before our server came over (although an assistant took our drink order promptly). Also, I gave him my credit card during dinner to avoid any dispute about who was going to pay, but in the end he gave me the check, then waited several minutes to pick it up because he'd forgotten he had my card. Lastly, the soup and crouton/bread inside the french onion soup tasted like something out of a can. On the plus side, I think the prices are fair.

    Stoney River is still the best steak for the money in Nashville. There are more expensive steakhouses and less expensive steakhouses, but Stoney River is the best! The coffee cured filet is fantastic! The mountain of bleu cheese chips as an appetizer is great as well.

    Visiting Nashville on vacation and looking for a steakhouse. I live outside NY and pretty much consider the Palm the standard for steaks. Have not had great experience with their other locations, however, esp. Boston. Local Yelp reviews for Stoney River were good and we thought we would give it a try and are glad we did. The lobster bisque was almost as good as the Bernards Inn and the steak was darn close to the Palm NY. Salads were terrific as well, which leads to my only negative. Not only were the salads good, but also large, but no sooner had we (almost) finished the salads than the entrees arrived. There should have been a 10-15 minute pause between the two; who knows, they might have sold another round of drinks. Recommended.

    My wife and I frequent all the chain steak houses, R. Chris, Flemings, Morton's and enjoy them all; however ever so infrequently there is an issue, i.e. service, preparation, reservations etc. We have never in all the times we have eaten there since they opened have we ever had an issue! I am sure there will be a day, but it has been so reassuring to take friends there and expect nothing but an enjoyable evening. We also love their new look and updated menu. They are by far the best chain in our opinion
