I miss the BIG old "Bone in the Stone"

Since we live close by, we have ordered the "Bone in the Stone" for a few years now & were always looking forward to surprising our out of town guests with the largest and most delicious steak dinner in Western New York. My recent visit with visiting business associates changed my view of this... read more

After driving 7 hours to visit this place that was featured on man vs food we had a nightmare experience. We had a reservation and had to wait even though there were empty tables. We were seated, ordered our dinners only to be told they are out of the rib eye and the New York strip steak. I asked to... More

My wife and I ate here after reading the great reviews. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere inside and the hostess was friendly. The draft beer that my wife ordered came out barely cool, almost room temp. The staff cheerfully replaced that one with a cold bottled beer. After a reasonable wait, out food came out. I had ordered the... More

The shrimp and scallop in spaghetti was a great choice for dinner. The menu offered a lot and it was hard to choose what I wanted since I had pasta the night before. Still the details from the server was convincing that I chose the seafood entrée. I also had coconut Shrimp for starter and sampled from my brother and... More

We gathered as a party of 6 last night for a friends birthday. We were treated like kings from the moment we arrived. Drinks were served fast and the homemade chips were excellent . We all ordered the famous Bone in The Stone that was featured on the Man VS Food tv show. The steak may have been the best... More

Based on the excellent reviews, I purchased a discount certificate from n/crowd. A few weeks ago we decided to go (from Buffalo Niagara Airport region to Grand Island) for lunch. Although the website and certificate indicated it was open, it wasn't. A week ago Sunday we made another trip there. Our wonderful waitress advised us about the foods they were... More

The Riverstone Grill has excellent food with some very inventive ingredients. The burgers are great - you can choose from 2 sizes and with varying added ingredients. The sandwiches are great - especially the Riverstone steak sandwich - it's the best steak sandwich I've ever had. My son has tried 2 different burgers and said they were great. Alll come... More

is there some sort of Brigadoon thing here, that the good restaurant appears only once every 10,000 years, or when we're not here, of what? most recent trip produced singularly foul onion burger, served disdainfully in a chilly atmosphere... sorry to be the dissenting voice on this local trouble spot

Riverstone G, Owner at Riverstone Grill, responded to this review

We are sorry to hear you had a bad experience. I'm not sure which burger you had (onion burger) or your server, but we feel we have a great product. We buy high quality, aged beef from our supplier for our burgers. Also, with reference to the "Brigadoon" label, I'm not sure what you meant. If it was referencing short... More

I live nearby and dine here often. Everything I and my family has ordered was delicious. They have the best burgers in WNY. I highly recommend the Riverstone Grill even if you don't live nearby.
