We have been here repeatedly and never had a bad meal. It is a great restaurant with, I guess, a contemporary American menu. Food is tasty and generally not overcomplicated. Wait staff are well trained. They can cook fish as well as steaks properly.

As a result, it is popular, so be prepared to wait especially on Friday nights.

Good job !

Pros: Good bar

Cons: Average food

The food was average joe type food with a spin. Lots of powerful flavors from the wood that fish or chicken is cooked on. Great beer selection. I would go again.

My wife and I have dined here several times and the service is consistently slow. But our last visit Friday, July 27th at 7pm left us determined to never return and to express deep concerns about our server. When she came to our table she was very pleasant but after putting in our order that did not include drinks, appetizers she became very rude. Apparently she felt she would not receive any tip because of the size of the order. She then brought our drink in a broken glass and then ignored our request for bread. After 1/2 hour and seeing her serve other parties ahead of us I had to ask for a manager. After that she returned to table and become somewhat billigerent. We then asked for another waiter. After awhile he checked on our food and found that she had not put the order in! I just hope she was not acting this way because my wife and i are a mixed race couple... we will never return and will make sure all our friends, family and co-workers hear the details of the story.

Pros: Food is good

Cons: Service is consistently slow and you may be targeted based stereotyping

I have eaten at Stonewood several times with a large group of people and the service has always been outstanding! Seating was prompt (although we did make a reservation ahead of time), our server was attentive, and the food we ordered was delicious and cooked perfectly. I would highly recommend coming here if you have a large group of people (remember to call ahead), for a romantic dinner/special occasion, or even if you're just craving a good steak. I also recommend getting the baked brie appetizer...it's amazing!

Pros: Service, variety of food offered, desserts

Cons: parking can be a problem especially on the weekends or when they are really busy

Stonewood Grill is a chain restaurant, but you would not suspect so. While the menu is no-nonsense and very consistent, the dishes are created by an executive chef. You can read about "Chef Mike" and get a few of his recipies in the restaurant's magazine called Causal Flavors, free to customers and published every season.
Stonewood is best known for its steaks and fish, grilled on their Oak grill. The grill imparts a very nice flavor, meats are spiced well and not overly so. Side dishes are not quite as glamorous, they are your basic potatoes, steamed vegetables or rice, but you have a choice and substitutes are never a problem. Quality of their steaks is outstanding, and I have never seen a steak come out of this kitchen that was not cooked exactly as the diner specified. This restaurant is not Outback, it is in another league.
If you could possibly have room to eat more, the dessert list is enticing with spins on classics like Bananas Foster and Chocolate Bread pudding.
The interior is warm and inviting in dark wood, with large booths, accented by lamps and decorative art. Not a white tablecloth kind of place, so you can come casual and be relaxed. Expect crowds on the weekend.

Pros: value, consistency, great steak and fish, great service, casual atmosphere

Cons: no "specials", not a ton of variety, they stick to what they know

.

for the discerning steak eater, this place should be avoided. Service was average, the seafood dishes we had were mediocre and the steake was not worth the tab. Skip it and be just as happy at outback or if you want to spend a bunch try, Ruth Chris'

I could not say enough about this restaurant. The food was EXCELLENT!! To be all honest, this was probably the best steak I have had in the last 10 years. The service, well, let me put it this way - it was our servers first day, and her service was better then any other restaurant I have been to, since I moved to NC 6 months ago. I will return many, many times. If you have not tried Stonewood yet, please take time to do so.

My husband took me to Stonewood for my birthday on a Saturday night around 7:00. We waited only 15-20 minutes for our table in the bar, which was NOT crowded as some other reviewers stated. We had only time for one drink, but bar staff was very attentive. Our server was EXCELLENT-was there when we needed him but didn't hover constantly asking if we needed anything just after we had taken a bite of food :-) He was very knowledgable about the menu and the wine list. Our food was excellent from crab cake appetizer, wonderful steak, moist lobster, huge and tasty dessert, and fresh flavorful coffee/cappucino. The ambience was just as nice as our meal-slightly upscale but still casual. There were a few families with children, but the height of the booths maintained everyones privacy quite well. We will definitely return for special occassions - an enjoyable evening out!
