We went to Stonewalls with friends. I always get the prime rib. I get mine medium and always comes out just perfect. It has a great taste too. We tried a sampler of theiir homemade ice cream. The pumpkin was outstanding.

Best food I’ve had in a while!! Great for a date. We both had the NY strip. It was mouth watering. We also had the bake potato little dry for my liking but they were happy to get butter for me.
