Unlike reviewer jcoxmtns, we returned to Stonewalls 17 months after our initial visit and subsequent average review and we found the new atmosphere and food to be a huge improvement. Between Liz's excellent, attentive service and the manager dropping by our table, the excellent prime rib, fresh baked bread, tasty baked potatoes and scrumptious salad bar... We've found our new...

My wife and I were in Banner Elk for the weekend beginning 1/12/17. Our schedule was of such that we needed to find a place quickly. Against all of my best judgement, due to past bad experiences, we found ourselves at Stonewalls. We quickly noticed a much improved atmosphere and decor. After we were seated, Chris our server came to... More

Great restaurant for dinner with many options and a great salad bar. Restaurant staff was also helpful with Gluten Free option needs for a family member. All the staff were friendly and food was great.

Stonewall's has always been our favorite restaurant when visiting Banner Elk. It's now under new ownership and wow! ... The food, service, live guitar music, and overall experience was exceptional during this visit. Liz, our server, was great and made us feel comfortable, welcomed, and well taken care of. We look forward to our next visit later in the year... More

We took our son here to celebrate his birthday and they did not disappoint. The server was really friendly and chatty. The salad bar was yummy. The highlight was, and should be, the steak. SO GOOD!! We could not finish and took it home and munched on it the next day too! YES, the pricing is a little high, but... More

Loved the filet. Excellent service. Enjoyed having dinner here after a long ski day. Spinach and artichoke dip was an excellent hot app and the chocolate cake made with a orange olive oil was delicious.

My family went to Stonewall's for dinner last night for the first time in a couple of years. Our last experience there was sort of blase, but this time we were thoroughly impressed with the quality of the food and service. They offer traditional "steak house" classics - strips and prime rib, baked potatoes, and salad bar - but also... More

Fun, diverse, creative menu. Knowledgeable, funny, polite staff. Incredible place in such a little town. Blackened prime rib w/ horseradish sauce was so tender and full of flavor. Great beer and wine menu. Desserts were home made and off the chain, especially the turtle cheesecake. Thnx so much, see you next year!

We made reservations and they seated all 8 of us right away. The food was ok. The service was acceptable but not great. We enjoyed the garlic olive oil with the bread from the tasting room.
