They were able to accommodate a food allergy. The oils and vinegars in there front room are so delicious! Highly recommend trying a few of those. We will definitely be... More

Dinner at Stonewalls last evening included a wonderful guitarist, Bill Stevenson, who was a new addition to the venue. Our meal of prime rib,( delicious, rare,) and a filet, thick and juicy, was accompanied by excellent side dishes. We appreciated the ambiance created by the addition of the Mr. Stevenson's reportoir. The added elegance makes Stonewalls a dining experience like... More

Fun conversation with the son of the owner. He waited on us. We were seated in a quiet area near the oil beautique. Lovely.

Selected Stonewalls for their Prime Rib. They don't have just one night for their specialty...but every night...it is always a highlight. Salad Bar was very good to go along with the steak, and the service was excellent. Wine selection from their wine cellar was just right..and the beer was good and cold. Didn't need anything real cold...temperature outside was just... More

When we pulled up I mentioned that the parking lot was empty, that it was a bad sign. Should have listened to my gut. ordered the trout almondine (alminds were too done...trout was fair) with broccoli (mushy) and a baked potato (yummy). She ordered the scallops (over cooking at the table) with pasta alfredo (child-like swivels with bad alfredo sauce.... More

One won't go away disappointed with the meal, but it is becoming more and more confusing as to what is included in dinners and specials. The last three visits, different servers have explained three different inclusions/exclusions related to the specials. And each one swore they checked with management. Prices have gone up here as well, so Stonewall's goes down in... More

A trip to Beech Mountain is not complete without at least one meal at Stonewalls. We have been enjoying their personal attention and friendly atmosphere for 29 years. Having the owner come over and talk to you and check on you throughout the evening is the norm. We have never had a bad meal or bad experience at Stonewalls. The... More

My wife and I have and will continue to eat at Stonewall's in Banner Elk. I have been tough on this place for a couple years now. Prior to sweeping changes in the staff, prices and food quality, we were very sold on this being the place to eat in town. Since the changes, things have gone down hill. We... More
