Our server, Jason, was great...he was very knowledgeable about the menu and answered all our questions. The salad bar was great...homemade salad dressing, potato salad, and even homemade pimento cheese. Our entrees were very good. The portions were large, took home two filled to-go boxes. Nice atmosphere...wish we were here when the fireplace is going and there is music! Maybe... More

We all ordered the specialty of the house- prime rib- which was good but not great. Heather was a very good waitress and responded to our questions and needs ASAP. Food was fine but nothing special but in fairness this is in the country not a major city. Decor was nice but utilitarian.

We popped in here on Wednesday 10/12/16, it was very crowded, appears to be a popular place. It was OK, but clearly not great. The salad bar is an old school salad bar, that was very good. They specialize in blended olive oils. I thought the flavoring of the EVO was VERY ARTIFICIAL tasting. We ordered a rack of baby... More

My husband & I decided to try a local spot for our Anniversary dinner while staying in Banner Elk. We arrived at 6pm on a Thursday & the place was already packed. Waited 30 min to be seated. My husband said his steak was excellent & I got the trout special, which was probably the best fish dish I have... More

My husband and I were looking for a nice place to eat dinner for our last night in town. Stonewalls was just that! The food was good - filet and prime rib. Nothing too fancy. However, the service was impeccable. Jason was extremely attentive and helpful. He made sure all of our needs were attended to and delighted us with... More

This restaurant fell from the favorite dining place for most people up here during the summer and locals too about two years ago when the food and service of the area's favorite restaurant just lost it. It now has new owners and a slightly new menu, but the food is superb and served beautifully with great service too. I stopped... More

Stonewalls is a great little restaurant in Banner Elk. The service is good, the steaks are very good, I had the prime rib and my wife had the filet. No complaints and definitely would come back. Next door there is a small shop that sells infused oils and vinegar that should not be skipped.

Awesome!!!! Excellent food, the salad bar was top notch. But the Staff was what made the whole experience over the top. We went on Saturday night and the "guitar man" played a variety of favorites that added a great atmosphere. Our Server, Kristen was phenomenal, she went above and beyond her duties to make sure our party had everything that... More
