Adding to what is the highest concentration of steakhouses in Michigan, J. Alexander’s Holdings Inc. today announced it will open a new Stoney River Steakhouse and Grill on Oct. 29 at 155 West Big Beaver Road (near Livernois) in the Columbia Center campus in Troy.
The new restaurant, the first in Michigan, will offer seating for more than 200 people and is approximately 8,000 square feet in size, says Lonnie J. Stout II, president and CEO of J. Alexander’s Holdings, which operates J. Alexander’s eateries in Livonia, West Bloomfield Township, and at the Somerset Collection in Troy.
“We are delighted to announce our opening date for this new Stoney River restaurant,” says Stout, adding that the eatery will hire 100 full- and part-time employees. “We believe the Columbia Center campus is an excellent site for the restaurant and we are looking forward to providing our guests with the finest quality of classical contemporary American cuisine.”
The menu will feature a wide selection of high quality, in-house offerings with an emphasis on hand-cut steaks, a coffee-cured filet mignon, a New York Strip, a Ribeye, Prime Rib, wild mushroom meatloaf, and more. Steaks range in price from $29 for a 12-ounce regular cut prime rib to $45 for a bone-in “Cowboy Cut” ribeye steak.

Side dishes include asparagus, broccoli, French fries, mac and cheese, roasted Brussel sprouts, one-pound baked potato, Burgundy button mushrooms, caramelized onion mashed potatoes, and more. There’s also French onion soup, New England lobster bisque, multiple salads, and starters that included deviled eggs, crab cake, steak rolls, and whiskey shrimp on country toast.
The restaurant also will have a full-service bar with unique cocktails and a wide selection of award-winning wines by the glass or bottle.
