Jo was out servet and was amazing! Food was beyond our expectations and since we were celebrating our 35 Anniversary, at the end of the Meal surprised us with a glass of champagne and their chocolate cake! Perfect place to enjoy any important occasion

We had a reservation but they did not have a table ready when we arrived. It took almost 45 minutes to sit down and then another 30 to get someone to take our order. I ordered a drink and it took another 30 minutes to get it. The food was actually cooked well and was good. But I was irritated that they sent over appetizers for an apology but didn't ask what we might like and it was food that I'm allergic to. At least ask what a person can eat?

The food and service were both top notch, but the ambience was terrible. Imagine your're out with your mother for a nice quiet mother's day dinner at an expensive white tablecloth candlelit dinner and all throughout the meal a squalling baby three feet away won't stop fussing! Totally ruined our evening! Why do you let children under five in a restaurant like this?

I made our reservation for Mother’s Day dinner requesting a table and not a booth because my disabled son is very cramped (at best) in a booth. I received a call two days before our reservation saying they can’t offer us a table and it has to be a booth. I again explained the reason why we needed a table and the manager’s answer was “ well if that doesn’t just go someplace else.”

I called back the next day to speak with the general manager with basically the same response. He said he would do his best to get us a table. That didn’t happen, they took us directly to a booth. My son had to cram in the booth which made him very uncomfortable and embarrassed as well.

We didn’t say anything about it to any of the staff after that point. The service was almost nonexistent, with our water glasses empty for most of our meal. Just a rush job to turn the table over! No complaints about the food except a salad was ordered without tomatoes due to an allergy and it was brought out with tomatoes.

We have been dining at Stony River many times a year since it opened but now we will find another place to spend our money. Too many choices to eat out being treated like that. Shame on you Stony River!

I was not told that the brunch ended at 2pm on Mother’s Day when the reservation was confirmed verbally and the website indicates 4pm. Very disappointed. The hostess was rude about checking in (when I arrived 20 minutes early) until the entire party arrived. I had just told her they were almost at the restaurant and she continued to say that our reservation would be cancelled if everyone hadn’t arrived by 2:15pm. Not necessary to be curt to a mom on Mother’s Day!

Took over 1 hour to be served. The waiter was very inattentive. We had to ask about our order. When the food finally came, the steak orders were wrong. Very poor experience considering their prices.

Reservation was for 6:30. Finally seated at 7:30. Kept saying they were waiting on tables while clearly a half dozen sat empty. They never seat you on time but this was rediculous. No apologies extended. We will never give them a chance to ruin another evening out. Too many better options out there.

If you like really loud restaurants that make you wait 45 minutes to be seated after your specified reservation time then this is the place for you. The food was good but the rest of the experience wasn’t. Decent place would have offered a drink for our troubles but this one barely acknowledged our presence.

We came on Oaks night (5/3/19) and had a reservation. We were seated in what looked like a temporary dining room which was not what I expected. I have been to Stoney River many times and have never seen this temporary dining room. I know Oaks is a busy night but we had a 5:30 reservation so I thought we should have been in the regular nice dining room. Service and food were great! Birthday dessert was a nice bonus. We will be back.

This was the worst experience I have ever had at Stoney River. Our waitress was extremely rude, taking plates and drinks off the table when we were not finished. I felt like they may have overbooked because we totally felt rushed! The food was mediocre, nothing like the standard that I am use to when dining at Stoney River. If this was the first time that I’ve been to the restaurant then I would not go back!

Loved the food and the service. My steak dish was fantastic. We took our family for a birthday celebration and our youngest who is 10 was able to get the kids cheeseburger which was one her favorite burgers ever!

Something here for everyone and all of our dinners for a family of five were superb while very different.

The sides we ordered Brussels and asparagus were under seasoned and had no flavor. My wife and I took 1 bite and that was enough. The steak was well cooked and very good. The server we had (Taylor) was absolutely amazing. She was very attentive and friendly. It was a nice experience not amazing but nice. For the money I've had better meals at Morton's and Rivue. It was our anniversary dinner and we were trying something new. Pretty sure we won't be dining there again. Taylor was the best part of the experience.
