“Very nice meal.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

After a day of running around and being dragged about the mall I had a very nice meal.

My wife and I sat bar side. The staff was very accommodating and we were there just before the dinner rush as the restaurant was nearly full when we left.

Shrimp cocktail. Chilled not frozen shrimp that were nice and firm. Really good sauce.

Excellent rolls. Hush puppy like.

We both got the 7 oz filet. Mine was perfectly medium. My wife ordered medium but came closer to medium well. Close. Why they are not getting a 5. Steak house's should get steaks perfect.

I got a baked potato. Well done. My wife got their mashed potato's. Not bad but try something else.

We split the asparagus and that was very good.

Staff was professional and very helpful without being pushy.

We will be back!

“Stoney River Delights”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013 via mobile

Another outdoor patio, another state, another perfect cappuccino--a light and delightful finish for a lovely meal at Stoney River in Towson. I watched the slow sunset on the quiet patio, lingered and enjoyed first-rate Maryland crab cakes nicely accompanied by a sweet mustard sauce and blanched spinach (at my request). The steaks looked first rate, and the servers were pros, ready to customize the menu to make it memorable. A definite return visit for a convivial or romantic evening out with many interesting menu choices to try.

“Great dinners”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

In my experience, Stoney River is a place you can take guests for a nice evening dinner or special occassion with confidence. We have visited several times, and the steaks were outstanding on each occassion. The rolls are unusually good and a favorite with our kids. The lunch menu, however, is much smaller and less impressive. Stoney River is not inexpensive, and reservations are highly recommended in the evening, as we have occassionally had a lengthy wait for a table. The staff who have served us have been well trained, efficient, and welcoming without being unprofessionally "gushy" or intrusive. The restaurant is located on the York Road side of the Towson Towncenter mall just north of the Towson Circle, easily accessible from the I-695 Beltway.

“Best Hamburger Ever!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Great wine, rusty nail drinks and without a doubt, the best hamburger I've ever had in my life! I hardly eat red meat, maybe once a month. So when I do, I like it to be a great piece of meat. Usually I order a fillet mignon, but I was in the mood for a hamburger, ordered without the bun. It was juicy, med. rare and cooked to perfection, with just enough caramelized onions and gruyere cheese. I highly recommend this burger!

“You can do better for the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

I went recently with two other companions who had heard the restaurant was good. I had never heard of it but was willing to try it out.
I decided to go with the tenderloin salad which was flavorful and had a very tasty buttermilk dressing. The problem was with the cooking. I wanted medium, others in my party wanted medium well, and medium rare for their items. Nothing came out cooked properly. We were all tired and just went with it but the kitchen staff needs to get their act together.
