We had not visited this restaurant in some time, we ordered our usual, chicken pot pie and prime rib french dip, we were not disappointed. The service was great and food served promptly.
Lunch was excellent. Service great. Food tasty and reasonably priced. Will definitely return.
Tristan is always a great server. We are always happy when we get him.
We have been going to a Stonewood Grill & Tavern for many years when we lived in Orlando and loved it. We enjoyed it very much and loved it until it closed a few years ago. Since we moved we have been occasionally going to the one in Sarasota. This past time we questioned the charge for the very watered down cocktail that I had ordered during happy hour. Never before had I had a watered down small drink in either location. I was told that was the price and that there was a $.50 charge if you had ice and a $1.00 charge if you request no ice. I had ice and as far as I know I have never been charged for ice before. I am very disappointed and my husband and I will not be returning. This used to be our "go to" restaurant.
Generous portions and cooked perfectly. Nice atmosphere manager is always welcoming and engaged.
Stonewood is our go to place for good food at a reasonable price. We have never been disappointed.
Our first time there, food was amazing a great way to spend any occasion or just a night out. Our waitress was outstanding very pleasant. She even brought a birthday dessert I wasn’t expecting. Great way to spend an early dinner or an evening out.
I won’t be returning.
The prime rib was good although overcook for my taste. The roasted garlic mash potatoes were horrible, it’s as if they had drop the pepper shaker in them. The presentation left to be desired ...
Food was outstandingly prepared. Equally outstanding and deserving a commendation was our server, Parker, who listened carefully as we perused your menu and helped us make modifications in how the food was prepared. For example, he arranged for using olive oil rather than butter in certain dishes. This was his approach, especially since my wife was looking forward to a lobster salad that was listed on-line, only to learn that Stonewood had stopped preparing lobster dishes about one month ago. (This is a reason why restaurants should immediately update their websites if they no longer have an item on their menu.) In spite of this, Parker was outstanding in his assistance, remarkably attentive, and we had a great evening at Stonewood. We'll definitely come again.
The food was very good, but the service was only fair. Although we were there pretty early for a Friday night, the waitress was not attentive and not very friendly. It was like she was doing us a favor to wait on us. When she put my leftovers in a container at the end, she stuffed the quesadia into a too small container and the food was difficult to remove, all stuck together and difficult to reheat.
Just average food
Not terrible not great
Staff was great. Food was delicious and healthy!
This was our first Time to Stonewood Grill and tavern. The cocktails, food and wine were all very good. I had the prime rib and my wife had the New York strip both excellent. Our server Alex was great and had good suggestions. For a very busy Saturday night everything ran smoothly. we will definitely be going back.👍

Always our favorite place to celebrate with a wonderful meal. Tristen is an exceptional server!
We had a great meal as always. Service was right on time. Will be back again for sure.
We were hunting for another favorite restaurant and we found one! The variety of the menu with seafood and steaks was great. We love grilled food; the salmon and shrimp and scallops were excellent. The only negative is they were out of grilled swordfish due to the New Year's rush. The service was outstanding. Reservations at least on a Friday night are a must.
Started out great but rapidly deteriorated due to forgetfulness of waiter and extremely slow kitchen. Mentioned experience to floor manager on duty. Hopefully will improve
One of our favorites. Food and service are always good. Atmosphere is pleasant and never too noisy.
Good food good service good atmosphere but the tables were sticky
Considering it was New Years eve they sat us on time with no wait...Service was great and the food was very good...No complaints
My family and I had a great dinner. Dinner and the service were excellent.
New Year’s Eve
every thing was top notch, service was very good. making reservations was so easy
Food served warm not hot
We had another delicious meal. My husband was not super hungry so he got the chicken club and said it was one if the best he has had.
The salmon was also delicious
Went for lunch....had lunch special half sandwich and side wedge salad. Very delicious but very small portion.
Food was slow, server seemed overwhelmed at times with his section. Apps took sometime steaks came out slightly over cooked should be perfect for the price you are paying.
Very disappointed! No Christmas music playing, I asked the hostess about it and she could have cared less. Service was very slow and the table felt like it hadn’t ever been cleaned. Also, most nice places when you order a steak you get a salad with it.
Delicious meal. Service was excellent.
Steak as always was perfect!
Server was on point!
No issues here.
We usually have a wonderful time here and were somewhat surprised by the spotty service and slightly overdone steaks. Must have been on off night. Still, we heartily recommend this restaurant.
It was our 30th anniversary and had to pick up our grandson at Sarasota Airport at 6:40pm so knowing he and his girlfriend would be hungry as well as us wanting to acknowledge our anniversary with a good meal I made a reservation at Stonewood. We were not disappointed! We totally enjoyed every aspect of being there! Thank you Stonewood Grill!
I love this place. I’ve never had a bad meal. Great value for the price.
The menu is varied and the staff is most helpful in helping you make a decision.
Always a TREAT to visit there.
Food and service were excellent. A little noisy but the place was packed
Parker was our waiter for our evening event and was a marvelous Blessing to our evening. We invited our friend from church and she was very pleased as well.
We eat out a considerable amount of time and have been at the Stonewood before, all of the times before have been wonderful. However, this last time was our very best.
Please record that Parker did an amazing job! He could have been a trainer for his focus on details and coordinating the process.
Thank you again

The food was very good with excellent service. A very enjoyable dinner for my wife and I. Everything is reasonably priced and a nice selection of food.
Spouse and I met niece and grand niece for a meal to celebrate the holidays. We all had excellent meals and service. Two hamburgers, a salad with steak and a dish with grilled shrimp and scallops. All were highly satisfied with their meals.
We certainly recommend and will return.
Good variety of food choices and quality and preparation was excellent. Service was quite good. This is also one of the more quiet restaurants in this area, allowing for people at the table to carry on a discussion without having to scream at each other. Keep up the good work!
