First off, the a/c was not working properly, so the restaurant was very warm. Second, our waiter was new (only about a week on the job) and not very attentive. We asked for bread three times before he finally brought it out (he even came over once and said he thought he had brought it). The manager came over and spoke with us, and took note of our issues and said she would use them as a "training moment" for the server.

The air conditioning was broken and had been for some time but no one bothered to tell us so it was very hot making it hard to enjoy our food.
It took 20 minutes to get a server and that was only after we went to the check-in podium.

Made reservations the same day for 7:00 dinner. I signed up on their app and got the complimentary brushetta which became an instant favorite. We tried the clam chowder, salmon and rustic chicken. Everything on those plates was delicious, juice proteins, colorful not overcooked vegetables.

The waitress, Lexi was outstanding!! I would request her again. The food was cold and the salad was on a warm plate. Not the servers fault so we still tipped over 20% but the runner or kitchen staff should have done better

Everything about the experience was great! We went for our anniversary and they had champagne and a card on the table for us when we got there. The food was amazing, we had the bruschetta for an app, I had the chicken entree and my husband had the ribeye. Both dishes were delicious! We had the key lime pie & Florida orange cake for dessert and oh my goodness both were out of this world. Will definitely be back if we are back in town.

We go here very regularly and this time was less enjoyable than past visits. Our server was terrific and made things right. We get the same drinks (maple old fashioneds) every time we visit and they are always consistently excellent—better than anywhere we’ve been. The first round was not up to par at all. Didn’t taste right and there was a funky aftertaste. Our server brought replacements and they were better. We think they used the wrong bourbon. My husband ordered another after that and it was the best of the night! We were disappointed that there were no pretzel sticks. Our stone bits were good and it was a generous helping. Our main courses were cooked to specifications, but it took some time for my husband’s asparagus to come out (mine made it out on time). The asparagus was off—tasted very vinegary for some reason and they were tougher than usual, but they were edible and by then we were not going to send them back. The AC seemed to have a difficult time keeping the restaurant cool—we’ve never experienced that there before. We opted not to have dessert bc we just wanted to get in the car with the AC blowing on us. Felt really badly for the staff—everyone was working hard in the heat. We will visit again—we love going—I think it must have just been an off night.

Things did not go wet from the start
We were told they had no bread
Then we were told they were not serving the seasonal specials advertised on their website
Next they were out of the red wine I ordered - four virtues Zinfandel
Winter dropped off check before we were finished

We got drinks at the bar. Edysen was a fun bartender. Went for my birthday. Had email for free bruschetta and free dessert. Alex our server that we’ve had a few times, was so nice to let us use both free. He was very efficient and friendly. We had chicken pot pie and shrimp and scallops. Both were delicious.

We frequently go to this location. However this was a special occasion for my 8 year olds birthday and the service was superb. The staff sang and signed a birthday card for her and it made the night even more special.

Service was a little slow and the food was okay. My chicken tasted pre-cooked and then warmed back up. Our appetizer was a little cold.

We were sat right beside the kitchen. The music they were playing in the kitchen was so loud, we couldn't even have a conversation. We could see our waiter, standing in the back, while we were out of drinks. My biggest pet peeve is paying $3 for a soda then having an empty cup. He gave us the check and we paid online so we could leave instead of waiting on him, again. We got up to leave after paying online, and he ran up to us with his hands up, acting like we were trying to leave without paying.
Only positive I have is the food was good.

Great meal, Stonewood Grill is as good as ever. Except for the minor annoyance of our entrees arriving about one minute after our appetizers, the service continues to be top-notch--our server followed through on our every request, during an extremely busy time.

Arrived for reservation, was seated promptly. Expected a great dining experience. Ordered drinks and salad, which came quickly. Ordered entrees, which was served, but was not to stone woods standard from our prior visits. At end of meal, our server was hard to locate. Had to ask other servers to have him check on us. We have had excellent food and service from Stonewood Grill in the past and hope this is one-time occasion. We will return at least one more time. At time of our visit, restaurant was not overly crowded or busy, especially in our dining area.

The food was very good. Starting worth the bread delivery all the way through dessert. The sides were a bit skimpy which made the plating seem off but the flavor of everything was great! Server was friendly and attentive. Would recommend!
