One of the better places in Banner Elk

Recently, Jan 2016, visited with friends. Friendly staff, good service. Food was cooked as ordered. A small prime rib, baked potato, and salad bar will run you $26.00. If you like you meat med rare, ask for just medium.

Nice family style steakhouse. When we visit we always go for steak and salad bar and know we can't go wrong. Awesome onion soup and Caesar salad, homemade pimento cheese appetizer.

I got to the restaurant 30 minutes early, thought I would read a little. 10 minutes before it opened there were 5 other groups waiting with me. I was impressed. After walking inside it felt good to be there. Warm and inviting. This is a special restaurant that specializes in infused olive oil and balsamic vinegars. I asked the front... More

We visit the Banner Elk area several times a year and Stonewalls has been on my list for awhile now. I had not read reviews, so my expectation from the outside appearance was a little off. It is more casual than I anticipated based on the outside. That's neither good or bad -- just an observation. It was a Monday... More

I'd compare the restaurant to an old style Steakhouse with a good salad bar. The food was delicious, steaks were really Yummmm-eeeeee! The alcohol and wine pours are fantastic, we will definitely be returning!

We had a party of 8.5 we where greeted at the door and seat very quickly. Our server Chris took all the drink order fast told us the specials. Our drinks never ran low. All our food was timed right and was cooked perfect. I travel all over the United States and this place rates in the top 5 restaurants.... More

Were greeted by the owner and his welcoming personality. The staff was great and very attentive. We were a large group of 8 adults and 8 kids and they truly took good care of us. The food was good and the ambiance was welcoming. Great olive oil and balsamic tasting room next door with great products. Would definitely come back... More

Read previous reviews and thought we'd give it a try. From the outside it looks pretty good, with quite a few cars in the parking lot. Though we were seated fairly quickly, our server was less than stellar. We got our drink order but it was at least 15 to 20 minutes before she returned. Though I give the overall... More

A great atmosphere with good food and attentive service. The dining room is not large so get there early or prepare to wait by the outdoor fire pit.
