Another excellent dinner at Stoney River, with a great glass of wine and the best steak in town.

Food is great. Service is fine. They are a bit weak in understanding and handling gluten-free.

We went for my first Mother’s Day. The service was subpar. The food took forever to be prepared. When we finally got it my steak was under cooked. I’m pregnant so the waitress was made aware of how important getting that right was. Had to wait again for the food to be fixed. Our waitress was more concerned about her bigger table than us. A manager came by to apologize for the wait on our food, asked if we needed anything, when I asked for a refill on my drink, he never brought one. Took another waitress to clear our table and finally bring us the dessert menu. I really was hoping based on other reviews that this place would be good, but it’s a one and done for us. Not worth the price. Also due to the exposed kitchen, we had to talk extremely loud to hear one another. Also the tables and chairs are so big you are sitting far apart from the rest of your part and have no back support. Only reason why I gave this a 2 was because the creme brûlée was decent.

Everything is always great but we sat outside to enjoy the perfect weather. The smell from the garbage nearby was too much to handle. You truly need to work on that because it is otherwise a great place to bring clients.

Although the service was outstanding, the food was forgettable. We both had filets (she the petit, I the coffee) and neither was the quality we've come to expect from Stoney River. Although properly cooked, my steak was chewy (not quite tough, but chewy) and lacked flavor. Her's was unremarkable. Be warned: the desserts (at least the chocolate cake) are HUGE. We chose to share dessert, and it was still too much for two people. After this experience we're not in any hurry to return. Marty, our server, was awesome, as he always is.

Overall good experience and average at best. Service was efficient and food was what you’d expect from a chain steak house. I’d recommend if you are looking for a middle of the road steak house in the moderate price range.

The staff provided a very nice experience for our 30th Wedding Anniversary. The food was done to perfection and the service was attentive without being intrusive. Gabi took exceptional care in her service and ensured our needs were met. This restaurant has quickly become our favorite steak house. I enjoy eating here much more than at Ruth Chris.

Very loud restaurant. Vegetable side dishes like augratin potatoes very garlicky and lacked moisture. Menu is somewhat limited, especially for seafood. For the money, there are far better choices to be had in the Annapolis area.

I've dined at the Stoney River Steakhouse about 6 times in as many years and have been disappointed every time.

Steaks:
I've never tried the fillet mignon, but have tried many other cuts, and have been dissatisfied with the steaks in most cases. Only 1 was cooked as ordered. The prime rib I had yesterday was the worst prime rib I've had anywhere (more gristle and fat then meat, very very chewy and hard to cut). Overall I have had much better steaks, for a better price, at the local Outback and Longhorn Steakhouses. Even the steak I had at Red Lobster was better.

Salads:
Salads (side and entree) have improved over time and were pretty good this last visit.

Side Dishes:
I got the au gratin potatoes and sauteed spinach yesterday. The potatoes were passable but had an odd spice (nutmeg I think) and a sour tasting cheese. The sauteed spinach was good.

Dessert:
We got the key lime pie and creme brulee. The pie custard was good but the crust was too thick and dry. The brulee custard was passable, but they put too much sugar on top and over torched it into a thick, dark, burnt tasting, glass-like sheet, not the light, crunchy, caramel flavored crust we expect.

Noise Level:
The noise from the kitchen used to be very loud. Yesterday at least, even with a fairly full restaurant, the noise level was just moderately loud. I know the open kitchen concept has been "in" for a while now, but they, like many other restaurants, would benefit from installing a noise barrier.

I will not be returning. I would like to dine there as it is close by, has a decent decor, and a friendly wait staff, but their steaks have not improve over time - still sub-par for the cost.

I've been to a Stoney River in GA, and the food was great there, however, it's wonderful to know there is one here in Annapolis that I can go to at anytime. It was my husband's birthday and what impress me was they gave me a card signed by the staff. Our waiter was wonderful and the food outstanding. We have found our new place to celebrate occasions as well as getting a great meal.

Very disappointing experience. We made a reservation and checked in with hostess at the appropriate time and was told we can wait in the bar area. After over 30min of waiting we checked on the ETA of our table, they “accidentally” put us down as a now show. Had to wait another 15min and to make it worse, put us at the worse table in the place, right in front of the kitchen and mall entrance. We could not even hear ourselves think it was so loud and distracting. Had to send the appetizer back for being over cooked and dry, steaks came out at wrong temperatures, bread knots were cold. To top it off we asked to have the unfinished steaks wrapped to go, to our surprise we had BBQ ribs in our container the next day. We ordered STEAKS!! Despite the errors, Joe the manager practiced good service recovery and made the situation right after hearing what happened. We will return.

This used to be my favorite steakhouse. My experience this past weekend was worse than if I had gone to Outback. The server was unprofessional and the food has gone severely downhill. My fiancé got the filet cooked medium, Oscar style. The crabmeat was not lump, and the steak was cooked well done. I ordered the ribeye cooked medium and it was on the rarer side of medium rare. Once we got our dinners, the server never came back. When he did I asked if there was a new cook because both of our meals were awful, he said no and asked why we didn’t flag him down. There is no reason why I should have to flag you down after we get our food. It was at least 20 minutes before he returned to the table. At the point we had eaten some of our food and just wanted to leave. They did remove my fiancé’s meal from our check, but we don’t think we will ever be returning. Highly disappointing.

I drive all the way from DC to get their food. There service is impeccable and I love that they honor special requests without batting an eye. If you want amazing food that’s seasoned well at a great price then you need to go to Stoney River Steakhouse.
