“We were repeat customers since 1996- We do not go there anymore.”
Reviewed September 15, 2009

My husband and I ate at Stonewalls at least 4-6 times a month when we would go to stay in our vacation cabin which was almost every weekend and weekly during our vacations. The salad bar was much better (walnuts, other items which have been removed and salad bar was cleaner (spills wiped immediately). Lettuce was crisper, not some in big chunks and looking like leftovers from night before. We got to know the staff and some of the cooks over the years and some of the oldies but goodies have left Stonewalls. Our last steaks were tuffer and not the quality we had experienced over the past years but prices are higher.We may go again and see if things have improved.

“We Loved Stonewalls”
Reviewed August 15, 2009

We tried Stonewalls on a recent trip to Boone. We were guided (by our B&B owners) toward other places, but felt like Stonewalls would be a good place for us.

We both had a steak and thoroughly enjoyed them. You must know that we have almost quit eating steak at restaurants because we rarely find a place we like. We als enjoyed the salad bar very much.

In our view, the prices were fair for the area and menu and service was a bit slow, but still above average (restaurant was about 1/3 full).

When we go back to Banner Elk, we will be sure to go back to Stonewalls.

“Repeat Customers”
Reviewed June 29, 2009

We recently spent a few days in Banner Elk. When it came time to eat dinner on our first night we ended up here after getting smoked out of the Bayou Smokehouse & Grill. (see our review) We landed in the right place. It was packed, but we got a table. Our waiter, an ex-Marine, (I know, I know.......once a Marine always a Marine) was very friendly and helpful. They have a fine salad bar. Ceasar salad, or make your own tossed. Fresh toppings, including crumbled bleu cheese, smoked oysters and anchovies. We ordered the filet mignon and the prime rib. Both were excellent. We enjoyed it so much we returned two nights later for a repeat performance. I would call this place a "family restaurant." Exterior stonework blends with its mountain setting. Inside you have oak tables and chairs. Not really an intimate place for a romantic dinner, but a fine restaurant nonetheless.

“Good value if you're into steaks”
Reviewed May 17, 2009

My sister and I ate here during a weekend in Banner Elk. if you're looking for a family atmosphere with lots of steak options and a fresh salad bar, this will fit the bill. The restaurant was clean and the wait staff was nice and also efficient. Good value. If you're looking for something gourmet or upscale, you might want to try a different restaurant.
