I ordered the surf and turf special and true to the description, the sirloin really was petite. I was however surprised when the "surf" portion was only 3 skewered, tasteless shrimp. It was all a big dissapointment, but I will say the salad bar was pretty nice. My wife ordered prime rib and enjoyed it. When I mentioned our dining... More

Jason Kerrier was one of the best waiters we have had. Service was fantastic and food was good. Could not have asked for better food, entertainment with music, and overall experience. The hostess was friendly to everyone and also smiled at everyone.

We went to Stonewalls two nights in a row while visiting family in the area. The food was of high quality and well prepared. The service was awesome! Great attentive wait staff that made sure all went smoothly. Sarah was our server the second night and she was great. My Mom did something that could have embarrassed her, but Sarah... More

We went here on the last night of our stay in Banner Elk in July 2015. The staff were exceptionally friendly and couldn't do enough to make our evening. The food was lovely and fresh , with a great taste. The best steak I have had in a long time. They have a great selection of food oils that you... More

While visiting Banner Elk to celebrate my Mother's 90th birthday, we could not have chosen a better place for this special family event than the Stonewalls Restaurant. It was a special dinner for a special person served at a special place. The proprietor and staff could not have been any friendlier or gracious for our celebration. The food was incredible... More

Over priced. Food was ok. 40 bucks for 2 salads and a kids cheeseburger. And we got charged gratuity because we were with a group. But yet we all had separate checks.

Although the menu is somewhat limited, the steaks and prime rib are excellent. Full bar service with large varieties of wine. Very large and well stocked salad bar. Cleanliness seems to be one of the hallmarks of this restaurant.

Great dining experience. This place meet and exceeded our expectations. This family owned restaurant was kid friendly and had great steaks and side dishes. The onion soup was right on as they say. The food was so good we'll be back later this week. A must dine.....

My husband and I enjoyed yet another excellent meal Saturday evening. Although the parking lot looked crowded (there was a large private party upstairs), we were seated immediately at about 7:15 p.m. There were at least 5 dinner specials but I always default to the prime rib! It has always been excellent. Don't worry, there are several seafood offerings and... More
