All the food was very good. The owner or manager was absolutely lovely and gracious. Staff was friendly. Would have been 5 stars but they forgot our bread and the restaurant was very drafty/chilly. Bathrooms need a bit of a refresh. Would recommend if in the area.

Family was staying at a nearby hotel so it was a quick walk to get to. Good location. Very nice interior very classy. Wouldn’t expect that from exterior. The lasagna was very good. Also very overpriced. Other two items had wasn’t the best and my wife and daughter didn’t care for. I’m sure steaks and chops are great but we didn’t want those. It was probably our worse restaurant experience on this trip as far as enjoying a meal. The people there are great and wait service was top shelf. But if we were in this area again I would not repeat my mistake again and try another eating establishment.

Excellent restaurant. Food is great, restaurant is warm, friendly, comfortable. Only criticism I have is that the service is so efficient that we were done and leaving a little before we would have wanted. Prices are high, but right for the quality of the offering, so this is not a complaint. We will be back when, once again, we have something special to celebrate.

It was a busy night. With limited staff on, we saw the owner coming to clear dishes, bring drinks. He asked if everything was good. No complaints everything was good. We have been a few times and will continue to return.

The French Onion Soup was absolutely delicious. The Roasted Beet & Arugula composed salad was outstanding. The Filet Mignon was cooked exactly how I like it and the flavour was stupendous. Portions were just right for each serving. Friendly, fun, and attentive Staff. Comfortable high back booth in a cozy atmosphere. 23rd Anniversary dinner was perfect! See you again Sandstone Grillhouse.

We had a lovely meal and experience @ Sandstone. Our waitress was phenomenal!! I mentioned we were celebrating my dad’s birthday and at the end of our meal she presented him with a delicious cheesecake slice with a candle!

The food was wonderful! Do try the French Onion Soup!! I had the Sandstone Burger and even with the hand-cut fries being undercooked - they were beautiful on the outside but the inside needed a little more time in the oil- I still loved my meal! When the server asked about the untouched fires, I mentioned them not being cooked enough - she brought me a desert menu and said whatever I picked was on the House per the chef!!! Such a nice gesture I wasn’t even expecting.

It was typical Niagara Falls pricing but for 4 of us we ate for $125 which is about what we expected to pay.

Exceeded expectations. Main dinner was absolutely fabulous!!!! We had surf and turf which was perfect, and boyfriend had a rib eye which I think was the best I’ve ever tasted. Waiter was smiling, friendly and accommodating (we were starving when we arrived and asked for bread right away before apps/drinks and he kindly and quickly obliged!) appetizer (crab cake) was just ok. Would defly return again and have been telling anyone who will listen about this place 😊

Visiting from west coast. We wanted a nice place to celebrate a birthday that wouldn’t break the bank and Sandstone Grill was perfect. My ribeye was cooked to perfection and the tenderest I have ever eaten. The service was great and friendly, the ambiance was lovely and quiet for a peaceful dinner and the prices were reasonable. We would go back again in a heartbeat.

Weeere seated quickly and had a great table. I had the prix fixe menu with salmon, and it was good. My husband had the 12oz ribeye, it had a good flavor and was cooked perfectly; however, about 1/3 of it was fatty gristle - for the AAA steak rating, it wasn’t up to par. All in all a good dinner with pleasant wait staff.

Steaks were well-prepared exactly as we had ordered, although the filet a bit chewy. Mixed vegs and roasted potatoes very flavorful and not overcooked.

Service was poor - drink orders not taken and server in a hurry for us to order. Finally asked a runner to get some iced tea, as wine was no longer an option. For a $100+ dinner, you shouldn't be pushed out in less than an hour. Definitely won't recommend or return.

This was a great find a quick drive from
Downtown Niagra Falls. We enjoyed a great dinner away from the hustle and bustle. The lasagna and the steak were the hits of the meal. We had four adults and two children and the staff and owner were very friendly and accommodating. The kids French fries were some of the best I’ve had. Check out this gem!

Turned up at 7:45 as per the reservation had to wait in line just to get in, then waited until 8 for the table and until 9 for all of our food to arrive. Kitchen apparently was a bit backed up so for the six of us we got one starter (out of 2) and one kid entree (out of 3) to start with. Then all the rest. Several grumpy customers. Appalling customer service.Menu section is pretty boring, food is ok, overpriced and average quality. Avoid

One of the best restaurants we have been too in Niagara Falls, excellent food, great service, on the pricy side, but well worth it for that special occasion. Will definitely be back. Highly recommend the seafood trio as well as the surf and turf.

Pricing of steaks is high versus competitors - can’t see how they justify their steak pricing.
Food was average tasting not noteworthy, fish and chips had a funny taste, But larger than expected portions for non steak item.
Server was average at best, providing table clearing services with little else in terms service or suggestions.
Ok athmosphere, acceptable noise level.

We didn't have a reservation on a Saturday night, but we were seated right away, but inside on the second floor. There was a bachelor party taking up the outdoor space and the indoor space was filled with a bachelorette party. First the wait staff took our order before the larger parties. Then the owner came up to make sure we were ok sitting there. She said "we will make room for you someplace else so don't feel like you have to stay here" we did stay at that table and enjoyed the entertainment of people watching. Will definitely return as the food was quite good and the service outstanding!

I visited Sandstone around 5pm on a Thursday. It was not very busy at all. I had a little bit of warning that the outside did not quite match the interior--totally true. My husband remarked that it looks like an old Sirloin Stockade and has a big cow statue near the front on the roof. The inside looks very well done and much nicer, though, and definitely qualifies as fine dining but with a more relaxed dress code (casual dress is fine).

My husband ordered the filet with rice, which was perfectly cooked and he very much enjoyed. I got the Seafood Trio (lobster, scallops, and shrimp) with potato wedges, plus a glass of Sawmill Creek Autumn Blush. Everything was delicious. I tend to find things too salty or too peppery, but everything was made to perfection.

Barry, our excellent server, brought my husband a slice of cheesecake with a candle since it was his birthday. We were both surprised at how great the cheesecake was. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting.

It was a bit of a walk from our hotel--Holiday Inn by the Falls--a little over a mile. Not too bad, but it's very hilly on the way back (and we were very full), so it was harder headed back. They have their own lot for parking, so if you're not up for it, do drive.

My sister in laws meal was very good but I got a wedge salad with a side of steak which was extremely tuff and has a strange flavor....overall, it was a huge disappointment considering it cost $32 for the salad with a steak add on....our waitress was very sweet but again...I left feeling very disappointed.
