A best in Suffolk, Va.

This IS a great Restaurant, it is a little pricy. But as they say "You get what you pay for"! Ever meal I had here has had great food, service, and atmosphere is wonderful also. I am sure you can go some places and pay more. But this is a really nice Restaurant for "Suprising Suffolk"! Dan Dixon

The food is always excellent and the service great. We have been going to the Chop House for several years and highly recommend it. A little on the expensive side but worth the price for the food, service and atmosphere.

I have visited River Stone on several occasions. The food is very good and comes in large portions. I have to be honest...nothing a ate left me dreaming about coming back. I believe it is more a combination of the ambience and the food versus one or the other. I would recommend this place for special dinners or for anyone... More

This was my second visit and we went to celebrate my MILs birthday. I would never choose this restaurant, but on this occasion, the decision wasn't mine. The restaurant is nice, and overall, it is hard to say bad things about it as they deliver what they promise. I do think it was a better than average experience, but it... More

Went with my wife for our Anniversary. Maybe I hit the wrong night, but the steak was average for both of us. Service was excellent and we were treated very well. Others have told me they enjoyed it, so I may give them another chance, but not soon at the prices.
