About Stoney's Kingfishers

The elegant dining room of Kingfishers merges artwork with nature. A mural spans the space and is accented by lifelike hand-crafted wooden carvings of Maryland estuary life. All of this overlooks the scenic waterfront of a Patuxent River inlet. Kingfishers is the perfect place to fulfill your business or social event. It is refined enough to have an important meeting but also casual enough to stop in for a beer and some fare after work. Also available is an outside deck, several transient slips, and an upstairs dining area and bar.

The food was the best part. Review really focused on the bad service, have a hard time seeing past how long it took to get our drinks. One think to note the tables around us sat ate and left before us?!? So I would say it was isolated to our server!

Arrived early for a reservation and was seated promptly. Service was fast and attentive. Good beer selection. Enjoyed the raw oysters and hushpuppies. Had the steamer which was pretty good - some of the mussels and clams were a bit gritty and overcooked. Corn was very good, lobster and crab as well. Crabcake was well done, with no filler.

Kingfisher's was only ok. Lots of fried fish on the menu. The dining room is very casual and nothing special. In hindsight, I would have chosen somewhere much different for our anniversary dinner.

We had a family dinner here, with the wedding party's rehearsal dinner going on upstairs. We had a blast, and the staff were very understanding of our back & forth with our relatives & friends upstairs, and they were very attentive, providing great service. The only comment that was a 'suggestion' is that several in our party would have preferred to have broiled crab cakes. The restaurant standard is to fry the crab cakes; they were very good both ways. We ate outside on the deck, and we were interrupted in the middle of dinner by a rainstorm. That's obviously not on Stoney's - that's on me, and everybody chastised me thoroughly. Overall, a great time for a very special occasion!

Overall our service and ambiance were lovely. Clam chowder very disappointing, tasted of flour and contained mostly shrimp. Soft shell crab was extremely salty and had too much batter or breading. Our huge seafood lover could not eat the second crab.

The food was coated with BBQ sauce and it was difficult to know what you were eating. The bacon scallops were difficult to know what we were eating. The salmons was also coated in BBQ sauce.

I like having lunch at the rest. but will not return for dinner

We celebrated two St. Mary's College of Maryland graduates' achievement here, with the families and friends of two best-friend roommates.
The food was just wonderful. Fresh, fresh, delicious seafood, beautifully prepared and served. The menu is extremely varied, and the staff was generous enough to allow us to order from the dinner AND lunch menus at mid-afternoon, which suited all of our appetites perfectly.
The service by Mandy was friendly, patient with oldsters, and once the food orders were taken, prompt.
[I had two issues ONLY. One was that the tables were set up in a long line, so that we had to get up and walk to the other end to meet and visit with the other family. A U or L shape arrangement would have been much more conducive to mixing. The second issue was that the drinks (mostly ice water, ice tea, and several glasses of wine/beer) took extremely long to be served. I don't know if our beautiful waitress had other duties elsewhere or what, but I could not understand what the holdup was. The bar was at the end of our upstairs room. I was sorely tempted to get up and help, but I am no longer the hail and hearty bartender I was in my youth, and I'm now too lame to do so!]
With those two exceptions, which were easy enough to overlook, the event was a huge success. My sincere thanks to Lauren, the manager, who facilitated my arrangements, and was happy to permit my bringing a sheet cake from our bakery that was specially designed for the occasion.

We had a terrific waiter, but the food was terrible, to the point of ruining our Easter Brunch. I had the worst crab cake that I've had in my life. I think it was microwaved and had been frozen for a long period of time. On the one hand, my bad for ordering out of season, on the other hand, the restaurant should not have served crab cakes that are freezer-burned. My in-laws had a range of complaints from overly salty crab mac and cheese to overly spicy ahi tuna to green beans that were frozen, not fresh as a side.

I felt like the cooking basically defrosted premade meals and served them. We will not return to this restaurant that specializes in seafood.

Quick business lunch and decided to come back to the Kingfisher. Last time I had their cream of crab and fish tacos which were good. This time I got their soup and salad combo for $11 which was perfect for lunch and included a bowl of soup of my choice and a side salad of my choice. The Kingfisher salad was very good and I would get it again in a larger size and add a protein to it. It was beautiful weather so wr got a chance to sit outside on the dock overlooking the water which was a nice treat!

I have never had a bad meal at Stoney's, or I should say I always have a good meal at Stoney's. This occasion was a birthday celebration for my mother. We had a table of 16 and the one server was able to keep up with a table that size. We all had a good time. Crab cakes are to die for!

Wanted to introduce a good friend to local dining patterns and options. Fantastic seafood restaurant! We enjoyed the ambiance, the service, our meals, and the river view while we continued our conversation -- with no problems hearing each other. My traveling friend arrived exhausted, so I phoned less than 90 minutes prior to our reservation time asking to move it up. No problem! The staff was most accommodating: another plus in a great evening.

We came here to celebrate Valentine's day. The seating was nice, it was next to the fireplace. We had a view of the water. The waitress was spot on, her name was Lauren. The food was very good, the only issue I had was the steak was a little over cooked. The crab cake was perfect
I would recommend dining here if you like a casual but nice dining experience.

I visit this lovely part of MD often on business and Stoney's is my favorite place to eat. It's off the beaten track offering some really great seafood in a wonderful waterfront setting. Service is friendly and efficient and such a nice break from chain food establishments. The salads are fresh and healthy with a variety of seafood toppings as options to add some protein. Soups are nicely done making this place a wonderful soup and salad light meal option. You can also go all out with their many grilled or fried seafood offerings if that's your preference.

We ventured down to Stoney's at Solomon's for the seafood and for a quiet night pre-Valentine's Day. Since we went on a Monday in February, there were very few diners, which suited us very nicely! We were especially taken with the lovely sculptures of carved waterfowl -- a favorite of ours. The food was very good, but not huge portions. Since we are seniors, we were content but I'm afraid many modern diners with normal appetites may come away hungry for more. We could see lights on the water outside and the lack of highway traffic made for a very relaxing evening. Solomon's in the summer may be a different experience, but we were glad Stoney's was open in the winter.
