Stoney River Steakhouse and Grill opened at University Place on Feb. 27.
Stoney River is a chain of upscale steakhouses spread across seven states. This location is the first in North Carolina and it is located next to Silverspot Cinema at 201 S. Estes Dr.
Chris Conlon, vice president of operations for Stoney River Restaurants, said Chapel Hill is an affluent, under-served, upscale market, which was part of what drew Stoney River to town.
“We believe we bring a local, neighborhood-type restaurant to the community,” Conlon said.
Stoney River’s menu features hand-cut steaks, fresh seafood, entree salads and house specialties.
“A few of the favorites include the steak and biscuits, our coffee-cured filet, prime rib, Scottish salmon and our bistro chicken,” Conlon said.
Conlon said the restaurant mainly caters to the local community and business travelers. He also said three things make Stoney River stand out.
“Our genuine hospitality, a beautiful atmosphere and outstanding food,” Conlon said.
