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.

The happy hour specials were great, but the attentive wait staff (sorry, did not catch his name) was outstanding. Helpful without being intrusive. Kind and knowledgeable and very polite.

The chicken fingers were delicious as well. Have never had them prepared that way before and they were filling, crunchy and still tender and juicy.

Wine specials were wonderful - decent selection of both reds and whites. We will go back for sure.

We selected this restaurant based upon the great reviews. I’m not certain if this was the same restaurant because the food was sub-par and didn’t come close to the descriptions I had read. Pros: Service was good, location was easy to find, ambiance met expectations.
Cons: Food. My husband had to choose another selection because his first choice was ‘out…’ not usually a big deal but we overheard the table next to ours need to put in their order three times because their selections were also ‘out’!! Educate the staff so they don’t need to come back to tell a patron so many times. The pork chops were plain terrible. Tasted old, were chewy and poorly flavored and overcooked. The mashed potatoes and green beans served with it were excellent, though not worth the $20+ for the meal. Also ordered apps - Bavarian pretzel with cheese dip that tasted like convenience store nacho cheese, and the pretzel was dry and comparable to the microwave type they serve at high school basketball games. The app- southwest egg roll had potential but were overcooked so again weren’t good.

Overall, would not recommend. Dining out is about the food and this one seemed to have good opportunity but totally missed the mark.

Steak sandwich was the worst. Tough and very fatty. I ask for medium and the steak was overcook. Also you don’t serve a steak sandwich on a hamburger bun.

The food is always good, but this time we were sitting there 15 minutes before I had to call out to a waiter to take our order. He apologized. Then the 3 teens they sat in front of us were loud and obnoxious.

The restaurant was not crowded at all yet the wait service was very slow. Gnats were flying around our table. My drink was given to me with a bug in it. The fries were hard and cold and my turkey burger was over cooked.
My waitress did apologize and offered to get me something else but I declined. She was nice enough to remove my food from the bill.

We dine at Stonewood occasionally. We have enjoyed it each time. My wife and I are both avoiding carbs, so the lettuce wrap option for the burgers and sandwiches is greatly appreciated. The French Onion Soup is wonderful. We will be back.

Good place for a burger or a sandwich and a drink. Good food and good service. But don't plan to use a Master Card or Visa gift card to pay for your meal. Even though these are advertised as "anywhere Visa or Master Card is accepted", they don't accept these here.

Dined here for a business lunch. I like that I can easily hold a conversation without feeling like I need to shout or ask my colleague to repeat themselves.

The restaurant offers a good selection of typical American Ale House fare. My burger was cooked perfectly. Opted for the green beans in place of fries -- a good choice -- as they were tasty and I felt better about making a healthier menu choice.

Excellent food. Good service. Reasonably priced. Very please with the meal. Spinach & Artichoke Dip for appetizer was amazing. Two different kinds of tacos and the thai chicken salad had great flavors. We've been here before & we'll be back again.

My husband and I came in for dinner and drinks, everything was absolutely amazing. Our server, Irene made sure our drinks were always full and the meal was being enjoyed. My husband got the ribeye and I got the shrimp dinner. Both AMAZING. We will be telling all our friends about this place. Can't wait to come back!

PLEASE READ———I had a very very terrible experience here with my family. The server was very nice and accommodating. However, My wife ordered Nachos. Once delivered, the only ingredient was on the nachos was cheese and chicken. Tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, and jalapeños were on the side (4 slices may I add).
Once we asked for more jalapeños, onions, tomatoes, and sour cream, we were informed it would be $.75 charge for each extra ingredient. This was disturbing because these ingredients makes up nachos and are being asked to pay for each item is insane if this is what makes nachos.
Asked for the manager and he came to our table and told my wife if you go to any other restaurant, this is what they do! This was very condescending and we took his suggestion!

WE WENT TO GRANITE CITY! Had a amazing time, ordered nachos and ALL of the ingredients were on the nachos and we asked for more Jalapeños and were NOT charged.

Thank you Stonewood Ale for the poor service by Management! We took your condescending suggestion to go elsewhere and WE did!

Granite City in Schaumburg was amazing! My bill was $217.83 and I tipped my server $55 for such wonderful service!

This is a great place for a cocktail and a burger and is one of our favorite places near home. Friendly and attentive (but not overbearing) staff, great food (from their Patty Melt to the Meat Loaf, I’ve never been disappointed!) and great bar service. Highly recommend. Note, reservations can be helpful on a weekend.

The food was good. But the start of coming was not great. My wife is disabled and was barefoot and told us to sit it would be a moment. It became apparent they didn't want to serve us. We had to show and educate them on the disability act Law. They eventually allowed us to be sat on Father's day with my children presented. But I felt why did I cause to be question not once but several times. Of what her disabilities were. You can't ask me that. That is a violation one's privacy. Will I go back? I appreciate your willing to hear the law just, I am not sure due to the way my wife and my family were treated.
