Stoney River is a chain of about 10 steakhouses dotted mainly in the Central Eastern part of the United States. There are two in Nashville – one in Franklin near Nashville and another one in Nashville itself. I have been to the one in Nashville a couple of times and the food has always been good.
For starters, I would recommend the New England Lobster Bisque garnished with sherry. It had a strong kick of the sherry in the soup which was rich, smooth and sweet in flavour.
One of the best main courses there, in my opinion, was the coffee-cured filet mignon, cured in coffee, brown sugar and molasses. The steak was cooked to perfection and melted in the mouth. The enjoyment was augmented by the sweetness of the molasses with the hint of coffee.
Desserts never seem to be the strong point in a meal in the USA. However, the cappuccino creme brulee with spiced pecan and berries was worth a try.
