We knew that service would be limited to outdoor seating because of the COVID-19 restrictions. What we did not know is that the menu options have changed because of the COVID-19 restrictions as well we went there for a birthday brunch to find that the brunch menu as described on the website was no longer available. I wish we had known that in advance, while the website indicated the outdoor seating and masking requirements it said nothing about the change in menu. That being said the service was great, the food was good and the ambience was great.

Food was amazing. Considering the times they did an amazing job keeping everything sanitized and cleaned. It is located on a main road so noise was expected but since it was lunch time it was moderate but not disturbing to us.

This place has good food choices. The staff made sure all things were fresh.

The only negative is the noise level is horrible!?!?! Not only did I have to raise
my voice so that my friend could hear me, I could hear other people doing the
same. The room just demains you raise your voice to hear your conversation
over all of the other people in the dining room. It is too noisey and for that one
reason I would *not* recommend going for the Sunday buffet. So my selection is 'No'.

We were celebrating our anniversary. We had a fabulous dinner. The food there is always excellent. It was topped off by an excellent server. We had Alvaro as our server. He made our time most enjoyable. He was very professional and courteous and attentive to all our needs. We couldn’t be at a better place with better service than we had been tonight.

Food was great and plentiful. It was a very busy Saturday night; however, are server was friendly and helpful. The bus boy did a great job as well, supplying our table of 5 with a water pitcher instead of having to keep filling our glasses, probably when he saw how much water we were consuming! The complimentary digestif of an amaretto didn't hurt either! We will be back.

It's pretty average for a restaurant experience. Food is decent, the wine list is awful. Bar looked like a pretty good time, had a decent crowd with live music. The ambiance is alright, the restaurant is nice and clean inside. Nothing stands out as really good or bad here.

Our waiter was rather rude and insincere. He obviously did not want to be at work that night, which was made apparent by the “fake” personality and eye rolling at our requests.... we only asked him for a drinking straw.

The food was good, however the prices of the appetizers did not reflect the portion sizes... we spent $60 on appetizers alone and each person in our party was only allotted one to two bites a piece.

Sadly our experience was far outshone by local chains.

I enjoyed my steak and was prepared the way it was ordered. The others in my group liked their order, as well. The service was ok in the beginning but it seems the waiter lost interest in his job later on. He wasn't as attentive at the end of our meal.

The occasion was my 84 yr old mother’s birthday which I told them at the time I booked the reservation. No mention was made, so we just left it at that. I used 2 gift cards and my personal credit card to pay for the meal. The restaurant took a $4.00 fee off one card and an $8.00 fee off the other. The waiter didn’t know why but ofter checking both gift card sites I was told that some restaurants take a gratuity fee. Had I known that I wouldn’t have left an additional 20%. The service was good, food good, but not great. Overall 6 out of 10, fine for a quick meal but nothing special. Sorry I hate to give bad or average reviews but I’m still annoyed that they take a fee from gift cards but don’t let their waiters or customers know.

Dear John L As the owner of the establishment I take all comments good or bad to heart and act on them accordingly. I’m sorry we didn’t explain correctly how visa gift cards work. Please note the $4 & $8 you state in your feedback have not been kept by Stoney Brook Grille, those funds should still remain on your card. VISA gift cards get declined if we try to authorize the full amount. Allowing 80% of the amount to be authorized and the remaining 20% for you to use as you wish (tip, etc).

We went there for dinner last night. We sat in the dining room adjacent to the bar. Although they had someone playing music it wasn’t loud enough to drown out a conversation. We ordered nachos for an appetizer and two burgers. Our burgers came out before the nachos so the server asked us if we wanted to take them to go. We declined, because who wants to eat soggy reheated nachos. It was probably a good idea we didn’t have the nachos as the burgers and sweet potato fries were sufficient enough. Service was great and he was very attentive. Burgers were cooked perfectly. Would definitely come back to try those nachos.

Always consistently good food.
Their daily happy hour is a legendary value, and their Sunday brunches are amazing.
Live entertainment on Sundays as you peruse the chefs choices for the day, always a poultry, always a seafood, pork and beef represented as well-and all to complement your favorite breakfast fixings, and all at an incredible price.
Good people, outstanding food, great ambience, great prices...its all here.

Having never eaten here, we reserved a table for five at the Thanksgiving Buffet dinner and could not have been more pleased with the choice. There were so many positives: we arrived early for our time slot but were seated right away; our server, William, did an all around great job; the buffet choices were huge and included “all the fixings turkey dinner”, lots of seafood, prime rib roast, autumn style veggies, multiple meat entrees - the list goes on. Best of all, we all agreed that the food tasted delicious and the restaurant was a pleasure to be in - higher end casual but not stuffy at all.

Everything was good. We started with Calamari, Meatballs and Humus. All tasty. I had the flatbread pizza which was also tasty. Our server took our order without writing it down and it was spot on.
