In spite of having a reservation, we were offered one of the worst tables in the bar room all the way in the back. The cooking smells were disgusting and the table was tacky to the touch. The ambiance was unacceptable. When I asked for a different table I was told by a very indifferent Maitre D I'd have to get back in line and wait another 20 minutes. This is a restaurant we've dined in at least 15 times and always enjoyed it. The main room is very comfortable and the food is good value. I doubt we'll be back.

Very nice dinner. Service good. Seated us outside, as requested. We had a reservation, but they did not seem to care much about that. We had to wait about 25 minutes. Disorganized at the front desk. Otherwise, very enjoyable

The only reason I did not give a 5 across the floor is because the service was a bit slow. It even took awhile for our water glasses to be filled. Honestly, I would go back again. We weren't in a hurry so didn't mind waiting around at all. The steak was cooked to perfection and tasted delicious!

Service was extremely slow and had to ask serval times for items. We ordered drinks from the bar which took extremely long time to get them. We eventually cancelled the 2nd round of drinks.

Food was very good though and the kitchen manager was very helpful with picking up the slack of the slow service.

As usual, we enjoyed our visit to Stonewood Grill. The service from William was excellent.
However, we were surprised that
* there was no pretzel bread available
* there was no medium rare prime rib available and
* the sirloin was also not available.

The food we received was very good, but was our second choice. This was on a weeknight (Tuesday) and not especially busy. Seems like inventory control needs to be reevaluated.

Otherwise, good evening with friends.

Great to have Stonewood Grill back in action with their complete pre-Covid menu and a packed house.
Food was delicious and priced appropriately and the service was excellent.
We requested a booth when we made reservations and we were seated quickly.

Always good food and service at the Stonewood Grill. Although they told Open Table that we didn’t show up for our reservation. They had all of my information when we checked in. Not sure what the deal was!

Specials were limited to lamb, which I don't like, and prime rib, which was dry and tough. I have eaten at Stonewood many times, but this time the food was disappointing. I should have called this to the attention of the management but did not.

Food was decent, we made reservations and were seated in a private room away from the restaurant almost get like it was a overflow room. Waited for 15 mins before. Waiter came to our table to even greet us. Food was just ok for the cost.

Prime rib was cooked perfect but was not served hot, only warm. Didnt want to send back for fear of being overcooked. Asparagus grilled, tender and crunchy!

Historically one of our favorite spots. COVID changes everything. Who knows where this waitress spends most of her time - certainly not taking care of her customers. Had the scallop and bacon seasonal special - awful.

Great meal and service as always! Only concern is the lack of people entering and exiting with NO masks on. No sign on door either about wearing any. This seems to be the standard out east with almost all businesses.

Had a great band, but they were next to our table so....too loud. Moved inside due to mosquitoes. Was there a few weeks ago and had the scallops wrapped in bacon with a jalapeño sauce that was amazing served with asparagus and ordered sweet potato fries. Unfortunately I didn’t see this on the menu last night. Asked about it after dinner, and was told it was a limited time only item. I was not given that additional menu when choosing my meal. I suggest you keep that on the menu permanently. My sandwich and my husband’s pasta were eh. The scallops meal was superb!

Stonewood is a go to place to have dinner at least once a week. The food is good and consistent. And the service is always very good or better. Our server, Andy, does an outstanding job of taking care of us and looking out for us each time we dine there! The management should consider promoting him to a manager position even though he has only been there a short time.

I hesitated to leave a review as I don’t want to be unfair. I'm not big on chain restaurants.
I found the food, OK. Too breaded, to fried, too sauced, too processed, and after multiple experiences like this in Florida, I realize it’s the south and that’s the way they eat. I’m headed back to the land of artisan fresh cooking.
