Great food, varied menu
Our waitress was fabulous.
It was our 52nd Anniversary. She made a fuss over us.

Another solid dining experience with good service and excellent meals (3 of us). Have been going here for many years. We’ve seen several management changes and at times food and service was uneven but overall we have had many enjoyable experiences. A varied menu that allows dining at reasonable prices. Over the years we have loved their attention to detail - particularly (vast majority of times) their spotlessly clean water and wine glasses and cutlery. Our hope is they continue to maintain this attention to detail and we’ll keep coming back.

We were a party of four .. each of us thought their choices were very good. My choice was the salmon and it was delicious. My husband chose prime rib and it was cooked a perfect medium. The restaurant was quiet but we also were an early reservation. I would definitely recommend and we will return

Our service was very poor. I eat at Stonewood on a regular basis and generally the service is outstanding but not this past Monday. He brought my ice tea and never ever asked my friend what she wanted to drink instead brought her a glass of water. Immediately after sitting down he wanted us to order that was okay for me I new but my friend had never been there and had no idea what was on the men. I was never offered a refill on my iced tea. We each ordered a desert of Lemon Jello Cake only one was brought and it was served to me with one utensil. I ordered decaf coffee never was served any. If it had been my first time I would never return however I know better. My friend says one time was enough for her.

The food was good. Service and attention lacking. We waited quite awhile for our salad and bread. When I inquired, the salads came right after our steaks arrived .
We did not bring up but when manager asked how things were. We shared . Not that we expected anything, but surprised if she wound have checked back with us or a complimentary cup of coffee would had been offered would have been nice gesture. Nothing.

We have eaten here several times, always had good service and good food. This visit was VERY mixed. Arrived at 5:30 with reservation, table was ready - great! Server was also servicing a 27 party table - NOT great! took almost an hour for a glass of wine to appear. tables near us came after us and finished their entree's before we even had our entree's...contacted manager and was offered a $15 check reduction as we asked for our food to be boxed so we could maybe get some food to take home to eat after 90 minutes. And when i notified mgmt that they had forgotten to add $75 of food we had ordered, rather than say 'forget it', they dutifully added it to our bill so we could pay...and even though we asked for our desert that we paid for, it wasn't in the take-out bag when we got our food....but, we 4 still had a great evening - memorable for sure - and we would return. Just had a VERY bad situation as far as service and management response on this visit.

I made reservations for Valentine’s Day. We were seated pretty much on time which was great since it was busy. The food was great as always but the waiter could have been better. I ordered a soda with lemon and didn’t get the lemon the first time. I had to ask for it three times before I got it and by then I already finished my drink. Ran out of my drink and had to wait a few minutes before I was brought another one and it wasn’t by the waiter, it was by someone who brought my husband his drink.

First visit, our reservation was for 7, we were seated by 6:50 and paying the bill by 7:26! We weren’t rushed, everything was smooth. Food was delish!

Our server, Nadia, was super. She is the main reason we dine at Stonewood. I ordered filet mignon well done and it was served rare or medium rare. Nadia noticed it without me mentioning it and wanted me to return it, but I ate it as it was. Also, the green beans were not cooked enough- they were almost raw. Again, Nadia noticed without us mentioned it and brought out another serving.

The hostess and staff went above and beyond to help make our dinner extra special. It was for our anniversary and the table included a signed card from the entire staff and a rose. The manager treated us to a special anniversary dessert. It was all lovely. Thank you to everyone there!

My family of 4 had wonderful meals and our server, Justice, was excellent! She was very attentive and had a great personality. We had a few questions regarding wine selection and she was very helpful and informative. Our appetizers and all 4 meals were perfect temperature, nicely plated and very tasty. We left the restaurant happy with our entire experience.

We all had the prime rib, 3 medium rare & 1medium. It was very sinewy & was very tough! The quality was a large disappointment to us. We’ve dined there several times & had much better entrees!

The food is amazing but the server brought us the wrong order three different times. We have dined at Stonewood several times and historically the experience has been really good but this time the service was unbelievably inadequate. Salad arrived after the entree and my family sat for 15 minutes with empty glasses. Not very happy with Stonewood right now.

I have been going to Stonewood in Tampa Palms since it opened. Unfortunately, the managing partner recently had to take a leave of absence for personal reasons last summer, and has not returned. I live closer to the Riverview store, so we went to this one last time. I had the strip steak; it was just ok. It wasn't that flavorful, and the mashed potatoes were a little bland. Not as good as it usually is.

Food here is normally great. The prime rib used to be the best ever....coated with fantastic seasonings and tender - in fact the end piece was always ordered (when available) because of the seasonings used. The portion served tonight was mediocre AT BEST - while it was cooked to perfection about 1/3 of portion was inedible due to toughness (it could not even be cut with the provided serrated steak knife) and fat. Also was not coated with any seasonings as before - they either lost their chef or changed suppliers, or both. Will definitely be going back, the other meal was wonderful, as normal, but I won’t be ordering their prime rib again...

Food was good and normally service is good. Must have been an off night, as our service was terrible. The order was prepared incorrectly and just getting our server when we needed her was a chore.

We love Stonewood! Unfortunately tonight our waiter was brand new and probably needed a bit more support from management. We didn’t get bread until we asked and then it came at the same time as our food. As always the food was excellent. One disappointment was that the menu on this app listed a pork chop entree which was no longer available and of course, that’s what my husband had decided he would order. He was disappointed but his alternate choice was still delicious.

My wife and I dined at the Stonewood Grill for her birthday and everyone there took the time to thank her and give birthday wishes.

The meal was excellent and the service superb.

This is the best restaurant in the Brandon area.

Vegetables in salad were sparse and not very fresh Told them no onions but they put them on. Steak was mediocre.
Outback has better food at a much lower price.
