My husband and I have gone there many times but the last two times have been such a disappointment that we will not go back. It used to be good but I no longer will recommend it to friends.
Their menu is diverse but can they focus on a few things and do them well? I care less about quantity and focus more on quality. Jamaican (jerk) shrimp wrap - they don't know what jerk is. Adding jerk spice to a dish doesn't make it jerk. The wrap is good but don't disappoint people with a "jerk" tease. Tzatziki sauce on greek platters - the flavor isn't there but the platters look nice (find a Greek restaurant and get it there). Crab cakes - don't bother. They're small for the price ($18) and again, lacking in flavor. Moussaka - Had it there and went home then made my own and it was better (and tedious to make). Maybe that's why people order it out. Kobe beef burger - I finally ordered it because I wondered what the "talk" was about. It was served dripping with fat or grease and my bun was soggy from the grease. The Greek lamb shank has been delicious each time we ordered it - no complaints there.
I've always had an issue with their cylindrical silverware. It's pretty but hard to hold and slides in my fingers. It appeared to be about "looks" for the owner not function. Their service is inconsistent. It used to be fine, friendly, and prompt. The last couple of times we were there, it disappeared after we ordered. My husband has complained to a manager and his complaints fell on deaf ears.
Perhaps Stony Knob has fallen prey to these sad economic times. However, if a restaurant expects to keep clientele, they simply must stop pretending they're a better restaurant than they are and bring the prices in-line with their food, service, and location. Stony Knob is just outside the main restaurant area in Weaverville. It used to be worth going to but no longer. There are so many better places to go where the focus is on quality, service, and price.
