A chain of steakhouses aimed at suburban patrons, Stoney River differs in a most affordable and consumer-friendly way from its upscale competitors, which adhere to entirely à la carte menus. Steaks here start at $16.95 for a 12-oz. center cut sirloin and top out at $31.95 for the 14-oz. Legendary Filet. A potato side is included with every cut of beef, and a side salad is available for $3.95. Just as importantly, when it comes to quality, Stoney River can hold its own with the likes of Morton’s and Fleming’s. All steaks are premium, grain-fed, Midwestern beef, aged in their own lockers and hand-cut from the center. Prior to grilling, they’re dry-rubbed with a blend of salt, lots of pepper, rosemary, garlic and other seasonings, which adds a delicious, locked-in flavor as well as a subtle crusting. Before leaving the table, servers check to make sure that each steak has been cooked to order. There are several options available to those who eschew red meat. Stoney River offers reservations to parties of seven or more; smaller parties can get priority seating, meaning that if you call in advance, you’ll be guaranteed a table within 30 minutes of arrival.
