Really Good Food but MEH Service

It would be hard to go wrong with a meal at Stonewalls. They have excellent prime rib and a great salad bar. The service is where there is a let down in that I had to track some one down to refill the coffee and I couldn't get the attention of the waiter so I got up and got a... read more

The decor, the quietness, the service, the food/preparation, the delightful waitress, the lady in the wine shop. All in all a great experience. Not that pricey for the what was offered. I would recommend this restaurant to anybody looking for fine dining and atmosphere.

I thought this was going to be better. The food was good but average. They had a salad bar but we did not order. The restaurant was very noisy. There are no curtains or fabric to absorb sound so it sounds like you are in a diner. Wait staff was very good and attentive. Place was very clean and there... More

The first time we ate at Stonewalls we really liked it. The 2nd time we had the prime rib, medium rare, which was tough and disappointing. An adjustment was made on our bill, which we thought was fair. The 3rd time we had the special, which was sirloin oscar. That was really bad. The asparagus was tough and overdone, hollandaise...

Didn't try the salad bar but it looked good. We both order the petit (8 oz.) prime rib medium rare. It was more than eight ounces and medium rare as ordered. Bread was good, dark, and plentiful and broccoli was crispy. The full pour merlot was ok the the price. We will go back.

We go to Stonewalls for special occasions. My parents live in Sugar Mountain. Mom 85, loves to celebrate her birthday here. The trout, prime rib, and salad bar are consistently excellent. My husband loves their cheeseburger. Service is friendly, atmosphere charming. But, we go for the excellent food!

I have ate a handful of times at Stonewalls, and I am never disappointed. It's a little pricy but that's not unusual for the Banner Elk area. Salad bar is amazing!!!! Fresh and so many options to choose from! Steak and ribs are to die for!
