Went in for happy hour. Was told they don't have a happy hour menu. Their website shows a hh menu and drink specials. What gives?

I have held off writing this review as I was looking for a response from corporate headquarters, but no response. First off, the food at the Stonewood Grill is always excellent, but they don't seem to know what to do with a single diner. I have been there about 6 times after a local concert arriving about 4:45 - 5:00... More

We went here for a class reunion dinner. We all graduated with the class of 1960 from a high school near Pittsburgh, PA but there are a lot of us living here year round or seasonally, so we decided to get together for drinks and dinner. There were about 30 of us with wives, etc and we all had a... More

The prime rib was superb. Service was very efficient and you could carry on a conversation, even on Saturday night.

We liked this place so much that we returned the next night. The first night, I had prime rib, cooked to order and accompanied by tasty garlic mashed potatoes. A daiquiri cocktail packed a punch; not at all weak, as so many mixed drinks are in restaurants. The following night, I had grilled lamb chops, which were delicious. Comfortable booth... More

Stonewood appears to be imitating Bonefish, but Bonefish has nicer decor and more seafood on the menu. Stonewood's menu is more land-based, but they have a nice variety of choices. I loved the cornflake encrusted grouper sandwich. It is a strange idea but tastes delicious. My boyfriend enjoyed his burger with bleu cheese. We went at about 9:30 on a... More

Made reservations and was quickly seated upon arrival. Our server was delightful and added to our evening. Our dinner choices were mostly from the special menu and all four of us loved our dinners. One additional menu choice was a salad which was also well received. My B-Day was further celebrated when our server brought a dessert with candles.

Do not eat here! My son and I stopped in for a quick pre-dinner snack at 4:15 on Christmas eve. We moved here last year, and had not tried this place yet. My son had the buffalo shrimp and a beer, and I ordered the lobster bisque. The buffalo shrimp was good, albeit 5 shrimp. My soup wasn't very hot,... More
