Steak
Just 15 miles from uptown Charlotte and 7 miles from Charlotte Douglas International Airport, Old Stone Steakhouse is located in historic downtown Belmont in the beautifully restored Belmont Police Department building. We offer upscale steak and seafood with casual prices and a warm ambience during the evening and a laid back and approachable lunch menu during the day.

You will also find a full bar with an extensive wine, beer and liquor menu. If looking to dine al fresco, we have a large patio overlooking Main Street and Stowe park.

Fancy but not too fancy steak house. Food was delicious and service was great! Little pricey but perfect for special occasions. Definitely a collard shirt establishment though, but not suit and tie.

We have been here many times and never been disappointed until now. Food was just ok. Usually it is great. Some items were only warm . Orders were not correct . Service was just ok. There were six of us in our party and no one was happy.

This was our second time here. Service was great, food tasted great. However, I believe we were given incorrect information (or lied to) about the type of gloves used in food prep. My wife has a latex allergy, so we can't eat food that was touched by latex gloves. We asked and they told us they use vinyl gloves. We had eaten there once before without incident so we trusted them. However, my wife became violently ill that evening, so we suspect those gloves might have been latex after all. There's a reason we ask this question everywhere we go! STOP USING LATEX GLOVES, EVERYONE. It's even ILLEGAL in some states now! And never assume you don't use latex - always check the box!

My husband and I went to Old Stone Steakhouse for a special night out and were not disappointed. The waiter, food, ambience and whole experience made for a wonderful evening! We have been there many times before and have found it to be what we consider the best restaurant in Belmont. We especially like the "dinner for two" dinner option...a great bargain and also includes a bottle of great wine!

This was my first visit, and the hostess and waiter were very friendly and accommodating. The ambience was pleasant, but the food was just fair and certainly not worth the price. To begin with, the item I ordered from the menu turned out that at 4:30 p.m. they were already out of, which was the French dip. That was kind of surprising, so I had to make an alternate selection which I chose the "chicken salad". I guess I have never had chicken salad that had no mayonnaise or sauce to give it some juiciness. The chicken was dry and it appeared to be just chunks of white chicken with raisins and hard tomatoes. I actually tried to eat part of the chicken out of the sandwich and took the rest home to feed cats. There was no choice of a baked potato, so the alternative was somewhat greasy steak fries. My companion had the filet mignon, and in comparison to a 6 ounce at other high-end steakhouses, it seemed rather small. Again, no baked potato but just the greasy steak fries. The best part of the meal was the delicious sweet tea. Perhaps it was just an off day, but I would not recommend the restaurant.

Service was attentive but service mixed up drink order (rocks vs straight up) and switched the chicken and veal Parm. orders. But the food was so good we did not notice the switch until we were already into our meal. Overall a good experience and I will go back

Such a great place. Used to be the police station for Belmont and you can see reflections of this on the walls of the restaurant. Food is great. Service superb. Always a great experience. Always make reservations because it's a very popular place. For an extra treat try the Jailhouse behind Old Stone. Used to be the actual jail for Belmont and they've kept the ambience. Cool speakeasy type vibe. Must pay for membership but worth it.

The restaurant is good. I booked on Open Table the night before our reservation. I called at noon to request a table instead of the booth. They told me no problem. When we arrived, the only thing left was a booth! Then the hostesses acted as if I was lying because I had made the reservation on line.

We were seated at the kitchen and waiter waitress area with open tables all throughout the restaurant. Although it wasn’t the best location we would have liked, we tried to make the best of our evening. Our waitress rushed us throughout. Several times wanting to take our plates when we were eating. We were not out staying our welcome and over talking to delay our eating. Our glasses were never refilled we were asked once if we wanted refills. My husbands steak was full of uneatable grizzle not just a little but big chunks throughout the steak. When we paid our bill and got our bill folder back our credit card was not in the folder. Another waiter found it on the floor back in the waiter waitress area. Just very odd service for what we usually get when we dine at Old Stone.

What they portray as a NY Strip looked more like a top sirloin. Poor quality meat. Very friendly but not steakhouse quality.

I have visited this restaurant on 4 different occasions. The previous 3 visits have been spot on with service and quality of food. This visit we were plagued with consistently slow service, did not receive our appetizer and length of time to receive service was abnormally slow. This could have been corrected with simple communication, but was never approached by waitress or manager as to the reason why. When we bought to attention of waitress that we did not receive appetizer she apologized asked if we still wanted then walked off. They did take the drinks off of our bill which was either a mistake or acknowledgement of poor service. I am unsure since no one communicated why drinks were not on bill (water and tea).
The restaurant was busy this particular night but still does not excuse the poor communication or service.

We had a great experience and Sarah was very attentive & polite. Don’t get me started on the food. The first bite of steak made me roll my eyes to the back of my head if that tells you anything. Old Stone is prestige & the best steakhouse around

Food was excellent as noted in many of the reviews. We had prime rib, ribeye steak and filet with lobster and crab. All were excellent. Sides were good, if conventional. Wedge salad cones with the meal. We had appetizer and dessert as well as drinks and the price was reasonable for a steakhouse. Compare to the big name chain steakhouses and this food is comparable at a better price. Good prime rib is hard to find and this was excellent.

Service is good but not quite at the outstanding level you might expect at a higher end steakhouse, but not inadequate, just average. Ambiance is more mid-range, not trying to be elegant. We will definitely return.
