“Does not present fine dining experience, the food is mediocre.”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

Waitress didn't notice that I didn't eat any of my $35 steak because the sauce was absolutely disgusting. Bernese sauce made of miracle whip? Really? Spaghetti O's out if the can? Mmm. Next time it's Chili's or something generic where I pay for what I get. Gross. Gross. Gross.

“Good food, service needs improvement”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

We ate at The Stone House twice during our visit to Montrose. The first time everything was very good - we were seated quickly (we had reservations), drinks and food arrived promptly. At our table, we had steak (excellent), 2 pasta dishes (excellent) and 1 chicken fried steak (average). On our second visit, we did not have reservations, but were seated after about a 15 minute wait. There was a long delay before we got our drinks. At our table we had 2 hamburgers and 1 pasta dish. The hamburgers were excelelnt - meat was done perfectly and all the add-ons were fresh. We didn't have mustard on the table and had to flag down the waitress, then there was another wait for that. This is a nice restaurant, but service is not consistent.

“Bad service, average food”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

The waitress was as bad as I have ever had. Takes our drink order and it takes over 15 minutes to get the drinks. She comes back before the drinks are served as asked if we were ready to order. We wanted to wait until we had our drinks and she just turns around and walks away. After ordering, we got out salads I wanted some ground pepper from the pepper mill she was carrying around. Unfortunately all she did was to talk to two people (obviously some friends) at a booth and ignored us. Finished the salads and a very nice bus boy cleared the table. Waited another 20 minutes for dinner and the entire time the waitress never came over to check on us. Asked the bus boy if he could get someone to get us another round of drinks and while very polite, he indicated he could not but would try and get a waitress.

Regarding the food - prime rib was good, hamburger for my grandson was burned on one side, my upgraded Colorado beef rib eye was a complete rip off. Tough and tough to chew. Almost like it had dental floss running through the steak. Would of like to of said something to the waitress but she only came back when we were about finished.

“Great steak, service a bit slow though.”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

The restaurant has a great feel to it, and the menu looked very good. We both had steak which we enjoyed - and I would recommend. My only criticism was how long it took to bring our drinks, I think they arrived just after our food.

“Average at best”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

Hungry for a good steak, this place was recommended by our motel. We were disappointed. the steak was tender but just about tasteless, the table service was good, but the kitchen was slow and they were not that busy. Prices would have been fine if the food had been good, but, since the quality of the food was sub-par, we could not justify the price.
