Probably the best restaurant in the Triangle. By far the perfect choice for date night, celebrations, ora relaxing drink with friends . Appetizers excellent. Entries excellent. The lobster bisque is a must. I have also been there for Sunday Brunch - AWESOME!

We chose Stoney River twice for special occasions and were very happy, twice. Be ready to pay for great food and service. We still feel the prices are worthy of the food and beverage. Tip: The carrot cake at $9 is a bargain. Take it home for tomorrow's dessert.

This is a good steakhouse. Overall problem was all the dishes were served lukewarm not hot. Bisque was excellent. Their “legendary” steak was soft and delightful delicious but as noted not hot enough. Wanted it rare and got it that way. Served sweet rolls and cinnamon butter both of which we did not like. My steak burger was fine except for the ranch dressing on it which was sweet. Crab cake appetizer was also delicious. Good beer and wine list. Loaded baked potato also fine. Serve was attentive but got a few things wrong such saying they had no club soda which of course they did as they have full bar. We had a good meal and would go back but will clearly avoid the ranch dressing and ask if the dishes are sweet.

We recently tried Stoney River for a family member's birthday dinner. I have to say that our experience here was great. We had early reservations, so it wasn't crowded when we got there, but even as it got more crowded throughout the night, it was never so noisy that I had a problem hearing others at my table. The food was really good. We tried both the crab cake and the steak rolls appetizers, and both were excellent. I had the center cut filet as my dinner, and it was cooked exactly as I asked. Tom was our waiter, and he was fantastic. His recommendations were spot-on, and was very friendly and engaging. We would definitely stop by there again on our next trip to Chapel Hill.

Our Chapel Hill friends recommended Stoney River and we loved it. We are from Charlotte, NC and hope they plan to open one here. It has a great atmosphere, good and efficient service and great food. The price are reasonable too. Everything we had was delicious although we ordered too many awesome side dishes to leave room for the famous blonde cookie we wanted to try. Will definitely be back when back in CH!
