Troy’s Big Beaver Road-Somerset Collection corridor has become the steakhouse and seafood capital of Michigan with the opening in October of the Stoney River Steakhouse and Grill.

The 8,000-square-foot restaurant in the Columbia Center campus offers seating for more than 200 guests. The classical contemporary American cuisine menu features hand-cut steaks, fresh seafood, a coffee-cured filet and signature steak and biscuits.

The new Stoney River is part of the Tennessee-based J. Alexander’s Holdings, which includes 45 restaurants in 16 states, such as the J. Alexander’s in Troy’s Somerset Collection, North.

“Like every restaurant in our distinctive Stoney River collection, our Troy restaurant will focus on providing our discerning guests an exceptional one-of-a-kind dining experience,” says Lonnie J. Stout II, president and CEO of J. Alexander’s Holdings.  “The finest in creative cuisine will be prepared from scratch  and served to our guests in a relaxed, comfortable environment by a staff of highly skilled and trained professionals.”

In creating an upscale ambiance, Stout says Stoney River uses European stemware for all wine service, high quality plateware, roomy seating packages, furniture grade tabletops, original artwork and a high level of detail finishes in all areas of the restaurant.

The Stoney River restaurant joins several other upscale steakhouses along a concentrated 1.5-mile strip of Troy’s Big Beaver Road main street, including Ruth’s Chris, Morton’s, Ocean Prime, Capital Grill, Eddie V’s and McCormick & Schmick’s.

General Manager Clayton Schader says the restaurant welcomes guests from 11 a.m. until 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. until 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.  His team serves brunch Sunday at 10 a.m. and remains open until 9 p.m. Private meeting space is available.

If you’ve spent time in noon board meetings or luncheon team strategy sessions, you’ve likely suffered through the traditional buffet of cold cuts and stale cookies that have seemingly become the norm for these occasions. But rejoice: Like all things Texas, boxed lunch options in our state are far from standard. Here are a few standout caterers that offer creative menus, seasonal fare, and a commitment to satisfying every palate by offering gluten-free, dairy-free, keto-friendly and vegan selections.
