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.

It was my Daughter-in-law & my Daughter’s Birthday. The location is good for all of us. There’s something on the menu we each enjoy & the quantity, and quality pleases everyone.

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.

We arrived to Stonewood Ale House after making a reservation through OpenTable, the gentleman at the Host stand told me I should have added in notes that we had children with us.. I told him I chose Standard Seating as my option so I thought we would've been sat in the dining room, not at a high top in the bar. I have never heard of having to write in the special request section that you have a child with you. Pretty bizarre! We were put in the bar section and it was not where we wanted to sit but he implied it was my fault that we weren't seated in the dining room due to my lack of tedious notes. Would not go back, gave us a weird vibe upon arrival and not family friendly in the bar section (OBVIOUSLY)!

I came in with my family of 10 after Black Friday shopping and they were able to get us in right away! Our server was amazing and made sure everything on our orders was correct even did separate checks for us! I’ll for sure be coming back here throughout the year

service not as good as in the past. server had zero personality and felt put out due to our gluten & soy questions. perhaps because of our few dietary needs this may not be the place to enjoy a dinner out.

The bar area is very nice & laid out well. The restaurant had different rooms & it was extremely loud. Pot roast was dry & hamburgers were OK. If you are looking for a place to have a drink after work the bar area is great.

Service was slow and she was not attentive at all. Medium hamburger came out rare and second burger was borderline medium. Noise level was extremely loud even though the place was 1/2 empty. Other restaurant do a better job...I rarely give poor reviews as I have never sent my food back before

The parking is less than desirable, the food is great, the service was great, the noise was terrible, double terrible!!!! I had to yell to talk to the person sitting next to me, it ruined the evening not being able to talk to people sitting across from me without literally yelling so they could hear me. It’s a shame cause the food and service was great, but I would not return do to the NOISE!

Our first time at Stonewood Ale House. Excellent food and service. From the outside,did not realize how big the place was. Very impressed when first walked in. Nice quiet seating, or bar experience. Would definitely recommend for dining.

Food is very good. Service was good. They’re very busy on Saturday night. Our reservation was ready right on time. Desserts also were great. Most had burgers, my wife had salmon in a very good honey mustard. I went with the chicken carbonara fettuccini. The giant brownie and banana creme were excellent. Next time we’ll try key lime pie. The drinks also were quite good. The only less than ideal thing is that the restaurant is extremely loud. Not energetic. Not noisy. Really loud. It was very difficult for us to hear each other. In fact, several times our server could not hear us either. Just be forewarned it’s loud. That’s not a deal breaker for us.

Met a friend here for dinner, and it was the first time dining at SAH for both of us. I have to say, right off the bat, that when I walk into a restaurant, I expect to be greeted in a friendly manner by the hostess. That was not the case at all. One of the hostesses didn’t even crack a smile. So, not a great first impression. Kind of got the same reception from our server, but she warmed up a bit. It wasn’t super busy, so I’m not sure why everyone looked so downtrodden.
Food was served in a timely fashion, and was prepared as expected. Potatoes served with the Bruschetta Chicken tasted as though they had been made in advance and reheated. Overall, it was just okay, but the lack of enthusiasm and general mood of the employees makes me less likely to return. If you don’t like people, get out of the service industry. For me, dining out is a “treat”, so when the people taking care of you seem unhappy , it takes away from the experience.

Food took a very long time, although the restaurant was not very busy. Ordered apps at 6:10, got them at 7, food came out very shortly after, never received items asked for

Stopped there unexpectantly to meet friends. Was happy to see a small outside area to sit. Food was good, not exceptional. Moderately priced. Server was less than friendly or attentive. She was frequently picking lint off her top or straightening it. Never a smile. Other than that, good spot

Very relaxing and homey atmosphere in the fireplace room. Our server George was very attentive and personable. The food was delicious...burgers all beef and juicy. My husband's shrimp were large and tasty and fries were crispy. The tilapia blackened fish tacos were flaky and a little bit of spice. The lettuce wraps appetizer were a large portion. All the menu items we ordered were great for the value.

The waitress was not social at all, but seemed very focus on her job. She would just stop and quick grab our empty glasses and bring us a refill without asking. We learned each soda refill was $2.95! Nice atmosphere

I was expecting the restaurant to be busy, but was surprised, it wasn't. The place was quite loud on a Saturday at 6:30. It was hard to have a conversation with my table.
The server was attentive, and the food came out quickly. The food was good portion, and served hot.
My friends had not been here before, and said they liked the place...and will return

Asked for a quieter space in or reservation and at the hostess stand. as several in party are hearing impaired, and they sat us in the middle of the dining space even though it was not busy, they could have put us anywhere. We asked to move and they made a major production about it and we were embarrassed. Won’t go back.
