Stoney’s Steakhouse Fabulous Happy Hour

By guest contributor Barbara TinucciStoney's

One of our new favorite spots is Stoney’s Steakhouse, located within Bayfront Place at the corner of Goodlette-Frank Rd. and US 41 in Naples.

Stoney’s has that comfortable steakhouse ambiance, with a cozy bar area, complete with booths. While we’ve never sat in the dining room, we peeked in the last time we were there, and it’s just as comfortable and cozy as the bar. There are outside tables under a covered roof, too, if the weather’s not too warm.

So, on to the fun part. Happy hour! Many restaurants offer nice happy hours, but we become not happy when the happiness ends at 6 pm – too early for us. The great thing about Stoney’s happy hour is that it runs from 5pm to 7pm, Monday through Saturday, and ALL NIGHT on Sundays. Pretty nice.

All drinks are ½ price including premium brands, wine and beer. And, they don’t skimp on the quantity, as you might possibly expect for such a bargain! My husband likes Makers’ Mark bourbon, and that was ½ price, as was my very nice Italian Pinot Grigio. So delish! Many places offer inferior wines and spirits at their happy hours, but not Stoney’s.2013-06-14 17.13.29

Speaking of delish, let’s talk appetizers, all of which are ½ price as well. One of our favorites which we’ve enjoyed on several visits there is the ahi tuna sashimi, which is delicious fresh tuna sesame seared with wasabi, pickled ginger and low sodium soy sauce for dipping. It’s really great. We also had the organic edamame with sea salt, pork dumplings, and bruschetta. All very good, and generous enough proportions to share. On a recent visit my husband had the mussels steamed in tomatoes, garlic and white wine, which he claimed were some of the best he’s eaten, and he’s tried them at several local restaurants.  Stoney’s menu lists several other appetizers including soup, shrimp and oysters Rockefeller – all ½ price during happy hour. Share a couple of these with your dinner companion, and who needs a bigger dinner? You won’t go hungry. Best of all, you’ll know you got a real bargain, but it absolutely didn’t taste like a bargain.

If you want to try one of their dinners, Stoney’s offers a prix-fixe menu from 5pm until 6:30 pm nightly and Sundays from 5 until 10pm.  A grilled pork chop, meatloaf, tenderloin tips are just a few of these offerings for $17.95.

Last, but not least, the service is efficient, friendly and accommodating. Good food, good pricing, and good service makes Stoney’s Steakhouse our new favorite happy hour destination.  We hope they continue this nice tradition even when the season gets into full swing.

Stoney’s is open 7 days a week, and is located at 403 Bayfront Place, Naples. Phone: 239-435-9353.
