Looking for restaurants in Banner Elk, we discovered Stonewalls. Our experience there was marvelous. The wait staff was very tentative to our needs, the menu was great with many choices for dinner. The owners were interested in us and even the chef visited us to get our opinion on the menu options. The restaurant had introduced some new items to... More

We decided to eat at Stonewalls on our last night in Banner Elk. We ordered the prime rib. The best prime rib we have had in 25 years!!! Just thinking about it makes my mouth water. The service was excellent. We didn't get the salad bar but heard that it was great.

The food is absolutely wonderful but the atmosphere has declined terribly in the last year. Music was way too loud, I could not hear my dinner date. The service has also declined, had to wait way too long for water, waiter forgot to bring bread and brought someone else's meal to our table. We have been going to this restaurant... More

We were told that this was a good place to go for dinner. There were 8 of us and we all wanted to sit together which ended up being a problem that eventually got solved. The menu is limited. The choice of sides with your entree is all starches, so if you want something green you have to add the... More

My husband and I both had the specials. after a crab mushroom appetizer. I had a salmon special and he had a steak special. They were both delicious. They even brought us a dessert for our... More

This was our first time here as reviews have been mixed. Jose, our server, was great! I ordered the filet, which was cooked exactly as requested, though sadly fell flat on flavor. My husband ordered the trout. It was tasty as was the coconut shrimp appetizer. We will go again but I'll pass on the pricey filet. A dimming of... More

We love eating here with our family when staying at Beech Mtn. They have terrific seafood and steaks. The salad bar is a total meal in itself.

Great place to eat dinner! Fancy meals as simple and easy. I really like the salad bar. Service has been terrific with great attention to details. Wines are passable, no outstanding choices. Rib roast is an excellent choice.

Stonewalls has a casual, comfortable setting. The salad bar offered chilled plates with a variety of fresh lettuce and toppings and several dressings.The salad bar attendent was accommodating and pleasant. I had the skewered grilled shrimp with alfredo pasta and it was perfectly prepared. My companion had the trout special. It was equally delicious. Warm bread accompanied the meal. We... More

First time visit to Stonewalls. It was excellent. Prime rib was perfect and the lobster bisque was like no other. Salad bar was very good as well. Jason was attentive and very friendly and helpful with our selections. Cant wait to come back to Banner Elk to Visit Stonewalls again.
