One of our steaks was well done and not medium rare which kind of ruined the entire value. It’s a steak place and you simply can’t overlook a medium rare request and expect to get a great review.

The food and service was great! The only issue I had was the noise level. We really couldn't talk because we couldn't hear each other

Reservation was at 9pm. Made the reservation 2 days in advance. Showed up at 9pm and was told we will be seated once a table opens. Wasn't seated until 930pm. I'm sorry but a reservation is reserving and making sure there is a table available and ready and reserved at the designated time. Or else why make reservations, just do first come first serve? A reservation/appointment time is to be held on time

I will begin my review by stating that this is my second time to Stoney River, and they were great the second time around. We had a less-than-ideal experience with them on NY Eve, but the way they reacted to my review told me a lot about how they value a good customer experience.

After speaking with the manager, we decided to go back and I was super-impressed on our second meal. Although there was a long wait to be seated, once taken to our table, the experience was impressive drink-to-dessert. The wait-staff was very attentive and friendly, the manager visited our table for a quick conversation, and the food was as good as I expected. We had steak, fish and sides. Both the steak and fish were delightful and the roasted brussel sprouts, I just can't say enough about those. I could actually just eat a bowl of them as a meal and be completely satisfied.

Will definitely return next time I want a good steak!

We went on Valentines Day dinner and we were seated at a plastic table with a white table cloth draped over and the back of my chair was so close to the next person I couldn’t sit comfortably. We were disappointed to be seated in an uncomfortable table near the kitchen with a lot of noise but paid regular price like we would as a regular comfortable booth. I’m pretty disappointed.

We eat here all the time, but the lady 2 times have not been good at all. Last time prime rib was full of fat... disgusting. This time I ordered the trio filet medalions... filets were cold and rubbery, I’m
not sure how a filet could be served like that...

Wonderful evening and dinner at Stoney. Especially nice to be sitting next to the fireplace! Food was excellent. Our waiter was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu; able to answer our questions about sauces and preparations. Valet parking is a nice plus.

We had a great time! The food was delicious. Deviled eggs were the best we ever had, prime rib and salmon were prepared perfectly. We topped it off with the creme brûlée which was as good orbetter than the ones we’ve had in Paris. Our server took care of us as though we were her only table.
We will definitely be back!

I’ve gone here for years on special occasions, I remember the overall feeling (atmosphere, service, other patrons being less loud and less like a sports bar).

Still enjoyed our experience there

Service and food was outstanding. Drink pours were not so good - really short on the fill of our glasses. The scotch on the rocks had barely half the glass and the martini was half full upon lifting the olives. Drinks are a big draw imo - should we go to that restaurant or not for us? This will definitely influence our future decisions. Also, Stoney will never give you a comp drink - believe us - we've been going there for over 20 years. About 10 years ago we might have been given a comp drink maybe twice a year - now it's never. I know it's a "corporate" policy - but very bad for repeat customers like us - especially the "short" pours.

I have eaten here many times before and had a much better experience. Seated promptly and then we proceeded down hill quickly. It took about a half hour to get our drinks; had to request bread; all four ordered filets medium and two were perfect and two were well done.
Expected a small dessert for my wife’s birthday but received nothing.
All in all, a very disappointing evening and it will likely be a while before I return.
Manager requested contact info to discuss my experience. Info was provided immediately. Unfortunately, I haven’t had any response after two weeks. Consequently, I have elected to avoid Stoney River in the future. I don’t believe it is worth the effort when you only get a mediocre meal with a side of bad service.

Where to start.. overall we had a fine time. This restaurant was recommended by some friends and we liked what we saw online. It was our 10 year anniversary and I reserved a table for 2 in front of the fireplace to celebrate that. Upon arrival, we were taken to our table. A table in the back corner next to the BATHROOMS. I told the host this is a mistake and she said there are other requests for the fireplace so sorry. I got very upset. A few minutes later another host came and repeated the same thing. I stressed this was a big day and I put that on our reservation. She offered no solutions. We were about to leave when a very helpful manager came over apologizing profusely. He quickly moved us when a table got up (maybe 3 minutes later) and offered us free drinks and apps. We moved to our new table (which was in the perfect spot) and began going over the menu. Our server was attentive for the most part but hung out at the bar with other coworkers every chance he got. Unprofessional. When the check came my drink nor app was comped. We wanted to leave so didn’t mention it. We would never had made these reservations and gone here if I had known this would have all happened. Food was overall good, steak too salty, and chocolate cake was terrible. Thank you for taking the time to read this! Jamie
