First time to Stoney River as ot was highly recommended by friends as a celebration for my Dad's Birthday. Very busy Saturday night when we arrived a little early for our 7pm reservations. As the other couple that were joining us were stuck in traffic we decided to order a pre dinner cocktail as we could not be seated until our entire party was present. My husband and I ordered four drinks but were scolded by the server to show the other two with us before she could serve us. Not a problem but I did not care for her curt tone. Once our entire party arrived we were seated by the bar. The noise level was a 10 as it was a very busy Saturday night. Our first server that came for drink ser ice was very socially awkward and took 20 min to get cocktail order for the 6 of us. Our next server was very personable and made the rest of our night very plesant. The appetizers were wonderful, along with the salads. Entree steaks were all under cooked but that is normal at a steakhouse. Two of the six of us took our steaks home in leu of sending them back due to doneness. We are looking forward to going back on a night that is not quite as busy as we know that this was not a normal experience due to all the glowing recommendations. Three of us had sweets, including the birthday treat that was presented and they were also very tasty. Cocktail list was great and the clever names were well received by entire group.

Yes maybe only because the amount you pay for a 40$ steak you can go to a basic steak house and get the same quality of a steak at a more reasonable price, don't get me wrong I tasted my husband's steak and it was ok,but wasn't mouth watering for some reason it was like the chef put extra salt on everything the shrimp toast was very salty and my husband's coffee steak,my medallion steak was chewy with roast texture very bad,cube salad was ok but I didn't get a choice of dressing I'm not a huge blue cheese person ,the creme brulee was very good ambience and presence was great,the little bottle of champagne and the personal Happy Anniversary card was fantastic, I was a bit disappointed but the sweet potato and mashed potato is what I ended up eating, the waiter and manager was spectacular

We were greeted promptly and waited about three minutes until we were shown to our booth. Service was prompt and efficient. The food was excellent but my brussel sprouts and my husbands steak and potatoes au gratin could have been hotter. The manager stopped by our table and showed a sincere interest in us instead of just doing her job. All in all a very enjoyable evening!

Normally we enjoy this restaurant. However, this visit was not enjoyable. Food was not prepared as ordered, waitress forgot to put in beverage order, and didn’t return for 30 minutes to see if we need anything and to ask about our food. Noise level was much higher than I have experienced. Could bare hear the person next to me.

The food was delicious and the service was great. The reason I only gave it 4 stars was because of the drinks. I had 3 drinks, one was suggested by the server, they were all overpriced for the size of the drinks and the amount of alcohol.

It was a perfect night! Our waiter Brice was awesome! The whole staff made our experience the best it could be. The food was perfectly cooked and timed. We enjoyed ourselves so much. We had the crab cake and steak rolls for appetizers. My wife had the lobster bisque and I had the Stoney river salad. We finished with the coffee cured filet Oscar style with the au gratin potatoes. If you are looking for night at a quiet restaurant with high quality food and amazing service Stoney River is the place.

Great steak, great salad. Was very disappointed in the baked potato. It tasted as if it had been microwaved and reheated. Have had many baked potatoes at this restaurant. Hope my next baked potato is much better.

Been to Stoney River many times and this was the worst experience . The steak was over seasoned and one was not cooked correctly and appeared to have too much fat. The service was underwhelming (although the front desk was good). I will think twice about going back, especially with price, I expected better.

One of our favorite places to dine. Normally a top shelf location to dine. On this occasion it was loud and unorganized. Management made no attempt to moderate behavior. Felt more like a sports bar this Saturday night.

We had a wonderful evening celebrating my husband's birthday with my siblings! The staff had a card at the table and provided a lovely and yummy complementary dessert! All of our food was outstanding - the deviled eggs were amazing as an appetizer, wedge salads fantastic. Or entrees included the petite filet, steak burger, strip steak, and the szechuan salmon. Our Waiter Seth did a fantastic job - he was friendly, helpful, attentive enough and apologetic when the kitchen dishwasher was slow to keep up with demand for glasses. We had a fun night and will definitely be back!! Thanks!

Can’t get enough of the place. Food and service are always great. Coffee cured steak was tender enough to cut with your fork. I would recommend if you have a chance to eat here, you would be crazy to pass it up.

We have been coming to your restaurant for about 4 years. We have always enjoyed your steaks, salads, bread and the staff. Your restaurant was the perfect atmosphere to celebrate our 54th wedding anniversary. We did, however have an issue with the steak. Even though we had never sent any food back in the past, we had no choice but ask for another steak. It tasted very salty. It was as if excessive salt was used to the point that it was uneatable. My wife, who usually applies lots of salt and pepper on her food agreed with me. We called our waitress to our table and immediately she took our steak to replace with another one. While we were waiting a gentleman approached our table. We explained that we had never returned any food in the past. He told us that the steaks are prepared differently than before and that is probably the reason our steak tasted salty. He suggested we specify that we didn't want any salt or pepper on our steak in the future. As before, the service, atmosphere and servers were excellent. We will return to your restaurant this coming September for my wife's birthday.

Live a distance away from the location, so do not visit often, but must say this last visit was not what we have experienced in the past. Our server seemed to be somewhere else most of our stay. She forgot our request for bread and was not exactly friendly. My wife's Hamburger was extremely salty, but edible. My Prime Rib was great! Will be back. Thanks, Lyndon

The sea bass was good, but the sauce was too much ginger. I think it would have been better if it was thicker and not so much. I think the ginger took away from the fish flavor. The sauce was also not very hot
