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

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.

Outstanding chophouse experience, service, menu. Good wine list. It is a nice restaurant for a special night out. Prices are absolutely in-line with other high-end chophouses, which is to say not cheap, but considering the quality and the service, I'd definitely say worth the money. Good ambiance. Far superior to most of the "high-end National Chains" you're familiar with.

My wife and I would not be what one would call, "regulars" to this venue. Even though we live close by, we have seldom frequented River Stone. Maybe that is why every time that we do come here, it seems to be a very special treat. Some thing that you don't really want to end or frequent for fear that... More

I've been to the river stone chophouse several times with work associates and the food was always very good. This time during my stay in Suffolk i wanted something tasty but quick. I ordered the clam chowder, Caesar salad and steak bite appetizer. The food did not disappoint however the service was very slow. I almost feel asleep in the... More

This was our second visit (Saturday, Feb. 28) and we were excited to celebrate our anniversary at this restaurant. We had reservations, were seated quickly and had a nice booth as I had requested. Our server was polite, but seemed a bit stretched and kept us waiting often throughout, but that was a small irritation. Without making this a long... More

Had dinner with wife and friends at this fine eatery. We had their classic 22 ounce ribeye steak. It was cooked to perfection. My wife had the califlouwer side which was fabulous. We had a nice bottle of Chalk Hill which was reasonably priced at $40. Would highly recommend.
