I just don't understand for a steakhouse to serve drinks in old plastic pepsi glasses tea tasted like it was instant Onion rings were half cooked had to be sent back no flavor but to Charge $30 for prime rib or a steak you should get some class and use real Glass

This is now Stampede Steak House. The steak was brought to the table with the corners burned(which was fat)but a good restaurant would have cut it off and not served it like that. It comes with only one side and everything else is Ala Carte. Neither bread nor rolls were served. The room we were in was exceptionally cool,several patrons... More

We've traveled past this place for 30 years and never stopped. Yes, the name is changing and under new management, and I'm not able to compare to previous management. We had no idea what to expect. After reading the reviews here we decided to give it a go. The hostess indicated that they had a reunion going on and 2... More

Joel's Front Yard Steakhouse is now under new ownership and has been renamed Stampede Steakhouse. The iconic huge steer is still present in front of the building on busy Rt. 31 in Verona. It is in very near proximity to the Turning Stone Casino, so the clientele is available. The new parking lot is spacious with room for many cars.... More

I stopped in to this Verona restaurant yesterday on the way to Turning Stone for a concert. I've dined here a couple times in the past, and it's always been a place where you could expect a good meal. Last night was no exception. I ordered a surf & turf dish for only $26.00, and found it to be very... More

Easy to find because of the large bull on the corner in front. Server was attentive, but the kitchen was slow. He did tell us they were overwhelmed on a Thursday night. Save your money on the "Prime Rib", mine was full of gristle. Others with us ordered seafood which they said was delicious. We enjoyed eating in the restaurant... More

I really wish I could give a review for Joel's that sent it out of the world for the new owners because I am familiar with the family and a native of the town. I don't see any changes that shouldn't have been done no matter who owned, or bought, Joel's/ now Stampede Steakhouse & Saloon. I watched the video... More

Having spent the weekend in the area we were directed to Joel's by some local folks. Wanting to venture out to a new eatery and, as a NYC restaurant owner, our party decided to take a peek at what all the hullabaloo was about. We spoke to the local residents in regard to Joel's, it's new ownership and the opinions... More
