We have had fish frys here and pizza and everything in between. Great place for families. Servers are very nice but the food can be slow in coming sometimes depending on how busy they are. The fish fry is the best! Be prepared for a wait on weekend nights, they are very popular.

Never had a bad meal here. The ribs and beef stew are to die for!

When Stone Creek first opened, they had great deals and great food. Lately it seems like their food is less original and homemade and more food-supply-outlet-mediocrity.

Their pizzas are probably their best meal. I have tried their steaks, and they are worse than what you could pick up at the grocery store and grill in your own backyard. Ribs and BBQ there are ok. Fish fry is decent. Any Mexican food there is Americanized, bland, and not good. Chili is good. Get the cup. Bowls of soup and chili are too large. Baked potatoes are head-sized and more that can be reasonably eaten in one sitting.

I used to look forward to going to Stone Creek. Now it is more of a joke. We say, "Should we go to Stone Creek?" when the at-home options are so dismal as to be depressing.

A great deal of work went into creating a relaxing atmosphere at this restaurant and I always have enjoyed the looks from the outside and the great stone fireplace on the inside. Unfortuneately, that is where the "great" about this place ends. I have visited this restaurant several times during the past several years, and I keep hoping the food and service will improve. It hasn't. We used to get our take out pizza from here, but the prices are really out of touch with the demographics of our area.

We used to conduct business meetings here and most of the time we were able to use the private meeting room at the top of the stairs, which suited our needs just fine. Then after several meetings we were put on the patio in front, which was fine. Then the last time we met, the hostess put another large family in the same patio as our large group and we had to compete for space and it was then too loud with all those people speaking in such a confined space.

As far as the food goes, other than the pizza, the quality has never matched the quality of the surroundings. I had a taco salad that was nasty. The last time we ate at Stone Creek it was because a couple we play golf with had a gift certificate they wanted to use. So we agreed to have a snack and a drink. The drinks were sub par and my turkey sandwich was barely palatable, very bland.

I have never been impressed with the service; waitresses have all seemed too busy to be friendly and rarely came back to check on us. I notice the bar is busy all the time and the beer garden on the open patio to the south gets used alot in warmer weather. It can be a comfortable place to meet with friends or family and watch a ball game, but the food and service leave alot to be desired.
