We visited this establishment last night( Wed) and were seated promptly. Along the way to our seat we were greeted by the manager which was a nice touch. Our server was Jennifer and she was so nice, answered the questions we had and recommended a few things. We received a bread basket of pretzel sticks and other breads which was... More

Have been to this restaurant many times but it is just not as good as the past. Once the order was placed it took 55 minutes to get the food. We did not have utensils and they ran out of the pretzel rolls. When the food did arrive it was not hot, the veggies were not cooked. The meal at... More

We dined here for dinner on a Sunday evening and were able to get a table right away at 645pm. Our server was very kind and entertaining. Drinks came promptly and dinner arrived in a timely fashion and was delicious. Our friends had never been to Stonewood and both agreed they would return. The martini specials on happy hour were...

My son and I went for lunch and were very impressed. Food, service, cleanliness were all first rate! We had been meaning to go for some time, but my work schedule has made it difficult. We'll be returning in the near future thanks to a great first visit.

Our family dinner was disappointing. Not our first time at this restaurant, but won't be in a hurry to go back. Service was slow and lacking. Our server seemed distracted...other tables were getting waited on and checked on regularly & we just sat there. Food and drinks were okay when we finally got them, but our experience was marred by... More

Despite a 7 PM reservation, we weren't seated until 7:45, and weren't served our cocktails until 8 PM. Making it worse were the different reasons we were given for the delays. The manager, recognizing our issue, provided free appetizers, which were quite good. The entrees ranged from good to poor, certainly not as good as previous visits. The Short Ribs... More

There were 6 in our group. We arrived at 6 pm on a Friday. They refused to put two tables together for us even though there were other tables pushed together. We waited for 25 minutes for the ONE table for 6 to be available. The young blond girl at the front was quite rude. Once seated, the music was... More

Well, raining a little here some tropical storm or other. Even with weather as bad as it is the guys at Stonewood go that bit further and never had a bad meal here. Food hot and good, wide choice Go for it and enjoy.
