Wait times for being offered more water or another cocktail was too long. Asked for to go box 4 times for leftover appetizers to make room on table for entrees before received one so entrees meal table was overcrowded.

Our server, Sharen, was outstanding. We had a mixed bag of entrees (fish, steak and pot pie) and all were delicious. While we were ordering we mentioned that it was one person’s birthday and Sharen brought out a piece of Key lime pie with a candle.

Wonderful evening.

We were disappointed that Baked potatoes were not available until after 3 PM also no mashed potatoes until later my goodness whats a steak with out a baked potato??? Enjoyed the lemon cake its almost as good as the orange cake. Need more handicap parking or add some special needs parking also need a place to place handicap walkers while guests are enjoying their meal.

The first time we ever dined here was on Father's Day and sat at the bar with Erin. She was incredible and to top it off, our steaks were cooked perfectly!

I came in a few days later and had the pleasure of Jesse behind the bar. Our final wrap up, we brought some friends in and had Erin all over again!

Thanks for great food and service! Makes a full experience.

The Stonewood Grill in Brandon is a very good restaurant offering excellent food and service. In the Brandon, Valrico, Lithia, FishHawk Ranch area, the Stonewood Grill can't be beat for an excellent meal.

Food was great. Our server was attentive, but too much so. We were celebrating our anniversary, and he kept popping over to check on us every 5-10 minutes. He did not bring our bottle of wine to the table until after our entree had arrived. We told him right from the start that we wanted to take our time and dine, but as soon as he brought over the appetizer, he asked us if we were ready to order. What part of "we want to take our time" did he not understand? He may be new, so I'll give him a pass, but he needs to learn a bit more finesse. (He struggled with the wine bottle opener, too, and let us know he was having difficulty.) We love Stonewood Grill and will be back, but our experience with the wait staff has been hot and cold over the years.

My plank salmon came out Char-black (plank was burned to a crisp also), but our server was on top of it and had already told the kitchen to make a new one. To expedite it since my table mates were already eating, I think they didn’t cook it long enough. Ended up giving most of it to my husband.
Good variety of foods to choose from. Nice booth. Quiet and enjoyable - allowed for table conversation. Good service. The rainbow trout that my husband ordered was fabulous!! We will be back - but I definitely won’t order the salmon.

The service was initially great, but as the restaurant became busy we experience a delay in service. The server forgot to bring our appetizer. The swordfish was excellent, but the jasmine rice was sticky and not very tasty. We communicated this to our server and manager allowed us to swap it out with a different side.

I’ve had better service and better “total food experience” at Stonewood Grill. That said - I’ll be back! :-)

Bad over experience. Reservation through OpenTable was 17 minutes late after I arrived. Their was no lemons for the water, no bread for the table and my salad was served to me a few minutes after the main meal arrived. Bad first impression!

While I know we came for Father’s Day and we expected it to be busy, it slammed. But service was way off compared to normal, service was very slow as we had to wait 20 minutes for water and tea, dinners were brought out at different times and the kitchen did not plan well as we were told the normal bread service has run out - we were there at 7p. The hostesses all stood around the computer talking when we got in and waited for our table, even though 1/4 of the tables were empty. Portions seemed scaled back compared to normal as well.

Not a good experience Stonewood. Hope this is a fluke.

Went for Fathers Day. Asked for a retire on my husbands steak. Took 30 minutes and by that time, everyone was done eating including my husband who only had his side dishes to eat. They took off the entree but still ruined our annual dinner.

Stonewood is a local favorite for us. It is always good and the service is great. It’s gotten to where you can’t go anymore without a reservation so we don’t go that often. It’s also pricey for us but on par with the quality. It’s very much like Bonefish Grill but with better ambiance. I would like to see calorie counts on the menu it’s very hard to order if you are counting calories.

Everything was good, but service was best of all. Had a reservation and were seated immediately. Server was very attentive throughout the meal, comped us a dessert for our daughter in law's birthday, but didnt tip off the wait staff, so there was no birthday serenade! Just as we wanted it!

First time there where the rating is not excellent. The server we ask for was not in so the service was not what we were used to. No smile, never refilled our water or asked if we wanted another drink. We both had to send our dinners back as our meat was under cooked. I understand it can’t always be excellent and we will go back again but it was disappointing

We found the service to be extremely slow. Waited 15 minutes for a cup of coffee to enjoy with dessert. Would be nice if there were table coverings on the tables. Also the table covering would help to tone the noise down.
Parking is most undesirable not near enough handicap parking and the lighting is extremely poor by far to dark making it difficult to walk and very unsafe.
