A great place for happy hour

Chophouse offers a fairly extensive menu for the happy hour crowd. Several beers are offered for $3. And a handful of appetizers are 25% off. Try the Philly cheese streak spring rolls. Wow. And they offer up some of the best calamari in the area.

I had dinner at the bar area with some colleagues. The happy hour appetizers are decently priced, and the calamari was excellent. As a meal I ordered fish tacos. They were fresh, but I've had better tasting fish tacos. 2 small tacos and no sides were $16. Very overpriced.

The food is excellent. Its fairly pricy but worth the cost. It is a nice place and the dress code would be business. We had salmon and steak. Both were delicious and cooked exactly right.

Although the atmosphere is attractive, the restaurant was only half full and incredibly noisy. The acoustics make it unpleasant. We started with a bottle of Sciarpa Pinot Grigio. It was listed at $30 on the menu. I was charged $32. Not very good. I ordered a house salad. I didn't care for the Green Goddess dressing. I should have asked... More

River Stone offers fine-dining in an area of North Suffolk / Western Branch that is over-populated with mediocre chains. The food is inventive and top quality while the service is attentive and friendly. It's busy for a reason! The dining room is calm and quiet while the bar offers a lively and festive ambiance. Would love to see later hours,... More

We went here for our anniversary and made a reservation to make sure our evening went smoothly. We arrived 5 minutes before our reservation time and then waited for 30 minutes despite being able to see 6-8 open tables. Food and drink were great, server started out wonderfully, but really went downhill throughout the meal. They have a nice setup... More

My wife were traveling and wanted some place close and this was right next door to our hotel. We checked the reviews and the most common one was the cost. However, we tried them out and we were pleased. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We found their pricing similar to other higher end steak houses except that they... More

River Stone is a gem of a restaurant, somewhat off the beaten trail in North Suffolk. The ambience is gracious, the service is most professional, the menu offers many wonderful selections and the quality of the food is unbeatable. River Stone offers by far Suffolk's best dining experience.
