We recently went here for dinner on a Friday night with friends. We had what appeared to be a new waiter, and were told there are new owners. The waiter dumped a large glass of red wine all over me with some additional splash on my partner. The young man was aghast, and I certainly know mistakes happen. Although some... More

I am so sorry that you had an unpleasant experience at the restaurant. I was unaware of what happened to you until your review about the accident with the spilled wine. Please feel free to contact the restaurant and ask for me (Scott). I would be more than happy to cover the cost of your dry cleaning or replacement cost... More

Without a doubt the best Salad Bar in the area. If you enjoy steak this is the place to go. Great service. I always try one of the daily specials. A must visit restaurant in the heart of Banner Elk.

Stonewalls has gained a reputation for quality food and service over the years, and after another wonderful evening with friends and exceptional food, it has proven to maintain its reputation. The new owners, both graduates of America's premier Culinary Institute of America in New Hyde Park, NY. are serious foodies, interested in continuing the quality that restaurant goers here in...

We were really questioning weather to come here or not due to the recent review of it being bad. We debated for about 2 hours on if we were going to go or not, we decided we wanted to give it a shot. Worst comes to worst we would have had a bad meal and service, but what we got... More

My wife tells me that if we hadn't been so impressed years ago.......... We visited the restaurant for what will likely be the last time. In the past we reported that Stonewalls had the best prime rib we had experienced anywhere in the US or Europe. The slices were about an inch thick, it was trimmed to perfection, cooked to... More

We went to Stonewalls for the first time last year for the steak and salad bar and were delighted to discover the very talented instrumental guitarist Bill Stevenson who is usually there on Friday and Saturday nights. We've been hooked ever since! If you go, be sure to try the shrimp cocktail, steaks, blackened chicken, shrimp skewers and the best... More

Crab cakes were very nice. Had a lobster bisque appetizer that I liked too. Waiter was new so i guess I shouldn't expect that much, but he didn't know how to look around for his tables. We didn't get the sauce with the crab cakes and had to wait to get his attention -- too long. Had to wait to... More

My friend and I ate at Stonewalls last week, and greatly enjoyed our dinner. The salad bar was good and more than sufficient. Our prime rib was delicious. We enjoyed talking with our server, which we found was from our home state of Georgia. We will be back our next time in the area.

We were told to check out Stonewall for a good steak dinner. We were greeted at a very busy time and they said a 30 minute wait. They directed us to the service bar when we asked if we could get a drink while waiting and we went into the oil and vinegar shop attached to stonewalls. A great and... More

The prices are high. You have to pay extra for the salad bar. If you want just the salad bar it is $14.00 including soup. My chicken breast was tough and small, I gave it to my dog. The salad bar was $4.00 extra as long as I ordered a meal which did not include soup
