StoneWood Ale House is the perfect balance between a classic restaurant and a great bar. Since we are independently owned, we are one of the few restaurants that still believes in that “personal touch”. Our guests love the warm stone fireplaces and cozy booth seating. They love the smell of our wood fire grill. They love our large 80 item menu filled with flavorful Pot Roast, Meat Loaf, Wood Fired Specialties, Seafood & Pasta and our famous Ale House Burgers. Our menu items have won many awards in Schaumburg. We pride ourselves on having the coldest draft beer possible, served at an icy 31.5 °F! And what we pride ourselves on the most is the personal care and commitment that our guests have come to expect truly making StoneWood Ale House the place to be.

Over the last three months I’ve visited the Stonewood Ale a few times with my wife and friends. Every experience has been great. The meals have been excellent, the service outstanding, and the atmosphere is conducive to a pleasant time. Frankly, I’m addicted to the Pot Roast dinner...best in the World...but the other menu items have been equally tasty. We all like the decor and spaciousness of tables. This restaurant is consistently good in all respects.

Today was a very cold winter night and when we found Stomewood with there fireplaces it’s made us feel so warm and cozy, the chop salad and ribs were amazing. The server was outstanding, very attentive, and made sure everything was perfect! Me and my family will defiantly be back and I’m sure all four season at this restaurant feels like home.

Overall very good. Food was prepared well and tasted good. The server was nice but a bit inexperienced. The place was a bit loud and the servers were congregating chatting loudly about other guests.

Stopped after attending a play in Chicago on Sunday at 5 pm. Was busy so, a good
sign for us. My wife and I ordered the chicken bruschetta. I have to say it was
one of the best chicken dinners I have had in a long time. It was served with
real mashed potatoes and vegetables which contained onions, sweet peppers,
and spinach. Very tasty!

Great burgers! We dined on New Year’s Eve and it was a fun, festive and relaxing evening. Party favors and champagne were a nice touch. First time there and really enjoyed the food. We would definitely go back.

We had reservations and weren’t seated until 55 minutes after. We would’ve left but it was NYE. The hostess was nice and apologetic. But it was still super annoying waiting so long. It was decorated really cute and had party favors balloons and streamers everywhere and a countdown every hour which we were there for 3 of them! Ha! They had noise makers too which was a little annoying after hearing them for hours on end. They also had served us all sparkling juice for the kids and champaign for the adults, which was nice. Food was ok. Nothing delicious. But it’s a pub, we weren’t expecting a superb meal.

Booths were so tight that two guests were eating with their stomachs pressed against the table. I ordered salmon. It was hot and cooked well but the rice was cold and the spinach was coated in garlic and just warmed in the pan, not really cooked. What kind of cook serves that? Couldn’t eat it. Beer can chicken was tough and we discovered when you got near the bone that it wasn’t cooked all the way. Ugh. They only get two stars because it was New Year’s Eve and they serve free champagne and ring in the New Year every hour. Good for families. Altogether bad food for us and ridiculously small booths.

I really like the idea that it’s open late and they have great food!!! The only issue I had was that we made the reservation but no one was available to greet us or sit us down at a table. Other than that the food & drinks were great!!!

I had an okay experience. The host was not very nice to my 6 year old-seemed annoyed by her. The food was okay, but nothing was super impressive. I would not go out of my way to return.

Yesterday I was in the area of woodfield doing last minute Christmas shopping and with all the traffic I thought me and my family would never find a place to eat where we wouldn’t have to wait forever, but we came across Stonewood ale house and the two hosts at the door looked like they had such a great system going we got sat in a timely matter. The chop salad I order was amazing and there’s so much more on the menu that I can’t wait to go back and try . I would defiantly recommend to my family and friends!

The food and service was beyond outstanding, prompt, and very professional. My boyfriend still can’t stop raving about the beer can chicken dish he ordered that evening. And while the menu may seem intimidating to vegetarians like myself ( a lot of ribs and steaks), our server very easily accommodated me with a black bean burger that was phenomenal and felt much more unique than other veggie burgers I have had in the past. I can’t wait to go back and try out the rest of their vegetarian selections.
Thank you so much, Stonewood
P.S Our server Emily was Amazing!

In the area where this is plenty to choose from, Stonewood ale house has a great selection of foods, including $5 apps before 6. The cantina burger was delicious and the Siracusa mayo was awesome. Service was GREAT. We will be back!

The staff was very attentive with the exception of our waiter. He was very bad. We had to hunt him down to order, to pay and almost everything in between! The food was good. It was a ladies lunch and we all had different salads. We like the atmosphere at the holidays because of the large fireplace which is lovely.

Ordered rib slab. Was over cooked: dry, burned/charred.
Went uneaten. Took it home to the dogs.

Server offered to have it remade. I said no. (My fault).
Disappointed in me for accepting an unsatisfactory meal.
Server never reported it to management. (Her fault).
Disappointed in manager for not stopping by our table.
