"A Restaurant that has achieved Excellence in every respect"

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... read 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.

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.

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.
