The waiter really tried. Though he touted the new management's use of the better "aged" beef - hard to tell by our burgers - pretty ordinary and served not to order - frankly have had a lot better in Cracker Barrel (of all places). Fries though ample were cold. Special drink of the day was not - it was just... More

Do not read into any bad reviews. Excellent service. Excellent steak. But most of all our waiter Ryan was great and made our meal perfect!!!

Had a burger and fries for lunch. Burger was undercooked and the fries were cold. Pretty pricy to have to deal with that. They are definitely reaching for a higher level than they are earning. Don't easy your money on their limited menu.

I ate here for a birthday party celebration. Even though we had five pm reservations and there were seven of us on the reservation, we were crammed into a table for six. This made everything uncomfortable and crowded. Luckily we had a fabulous waiter name Rusty who took excellent care of us. We received our bread with our salad but... More

I went to Stonewood with a date. We arrived in time for Happy Hour. They had special drink prices, as well as half-price appetizers. I tried the Bruschetta, which was mediocre. The bread was a little soggy and the salsa was a bit lacking in flavor. He had the Buffalo shrimp, which was pretty good. Even though it wasn't extremely... More

My family stopped here on the way to South Florida. We had a lovely meal. The fried shrimp were excellent, as were the mashed potatoes and salmon. They had a children's menu and our child said the food was very good. We were seated in a high top table in the bar area at our request so we would not... More

The dining room atmosphere is more like an upscale steakhouse and the food tries to be, but falls short.. Food is not bad, but preparation was lacking imagination. Probably a better choice than the other chain restaurants in that general area. Would go again when in town.

Hubby and I came for dinner and was impressed with the romantic decor, perfect for date night. Everything is very pricey which normally we do not do but this was a splurge type night. My husband got the blue cheese chips as an app and loved them. Good portion, very tasty homemade chips! Our waitress was friendly and but kept... More

OK, as always it seems like everywhere I go, there's my husband! My reviews always start with "My husband and I..." Same here, my husband and I landed in Sarasota around lunch time and we went straight to lunch at this restaurant. Our friend in Florida gave a good review about it so I wanted to check it out.

A fine place to go for a special occasion, though I found it a bit pricey for a working man on a limited budget. Our boss took about 27 people there for an "end of season party" and I could find no fault with the service or the food. The staff was very pleasant and the food well prepared. Their... More
