What I ordered: The Reuben. I practically consider myself a Reuben connoisseur, and this Reuben is one of the best I have EVER had!! The corned beef was sliced very thin, but was tender as could be, with awesome flavor. The bread was grilled to a nice, toasty texture, without any of the sogginess you might experience from grilled sandwiches elsewhere. The 1000 island dressing came served on the side. They also gave me a ton of fries, which were thin and crispy. A big hit overall!
Two of my companions ordered the Prime Rib. Featured here is the “King Cut”, 20-24 oz. This steak is MASSIVE!! The taste was very good, and for $20, I don’t know if you can find a prime rib steak that is any bigger or better for the price.
Another companion ordered the stuffed shrimp. This was simply, “alright”. The breading of the shrimp was nice and crispy, but the inside was lightly filled with a cheesy/crab mixture that had a very blended texture.
Service: Could be much better! This is the second time I had eaten at the Cornerstone and the serving staff does not seem to be very friendly or helpful. There were four of us dining on this occasion, and when the server brought out complimentary soup/salads for the entrees that my companions ordered, she only brought us three rolls! I cannot recall whether the menu included a dinner roll with the Reuben, but come on! In my opinion, enough dinner rolls should be brought to the table for everyone who is seated, regardless of what they ordered.
Overall Impression: Nice atmosphere for both dining and entertainment. Great Prime Rib for the money and excellent Reubens. Service needs improvement.
