I've been here before, but noticed that the door locks and handles had been removed from the door upon arrival. Not sure what the deal was but that was just weird. Food is okay here. I just wanted a quick sit down meal that wasn't fast food. The waitresses are friendly here and the food is okay.

We went to try the pizza. It was fabulous! I had the New Orleans pizza with spicy Andouille sausage and shrimp. I expected the tiny cocktail shrimp, but was pleasantly surprised when my pizza arrived with big shrimp sprinkled on top. We got the haystack of onion rings as an appetizer. They were served with a side of yummy garlicy-French... More

Stopped in for lunch. I had the fish and fries and my wife had the fish and shrimp tacos. I expected the fish and fries to be a batter's style fish, instead it looked like one out of the box, I wasn't at all impressed with the coating. The fish was served atop a bowl of skinny fries; the fries... More

The Stone Eagle puts imagination in its menu--practically anything that you want, and its done artfully and is tasty. The Shrimp/avocado salad is superb for lunch with varied condiments and unique salad dressing. If you get the haystack onion rings with it--forget about the evening dinner--you're done for the day. Especially after the imbibing in one of the vast assortment... More

We thought we would try this place and we were not impressed at all. We did not care for the food or service at all. The food was barely warm and just average. There were four of us and none of us were impressed. We will not be going back.

We had a WONDERFUL time today at Stone Eagle! The food was DELICIOUS and the wait staff was MAGNIFICENT! My husband and I went there after church and were promptly greeted. We ordered the Large Shovel of Shrimp each because you get so much that you take over half of it home (and it’s only a $1 more than the... More

Tried Stone Eagle Tavern based on hotel recommendation. Very disappointing. The waiter looked like a drill sergeant and addressed the guests as if they were members of his platoon. No personality, very abrasive. The wine list is not very extensive and mostly "grocery store" varieties. The salad is mainly tossed iceburg lettuce for which you pay a premium price. We... More

I have relatives in the Rockford area and usually when I visit we will got to the Stone Eagle Tavern for at least one meal. I like the unique decor and often while waiting for our meal I will wander over and check something out. This time it was the 1947 Indian Chief motorcycle hanging on the wall. I also... More

The waitress was very slow and kept forgetting things. She "forgot" what salad dressings we all ordered so she brought the salads and then said, "I threw out the ticket that said what you wanted so what do you want?" She came back about 5 minutes later with our ranch and house dressings (very difficult). She never gave us re-fills... More

I had lunch here with a client and I have to say it was very good. The menu has a lot of great choices and it was not easy to decide. I finally decided on the salmon that was baked in the wood oven. It was very moist and had great flavor. I cant wait to go back and try... More
