Good food

Very nice place. Had the salmon and it was delicious. Chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream for dessert is a must if you love chocolate.

My mother and I ate here for the first time last week. We were in the area for a doctor's appointment. I searched on my phone for nearby restaurants for lunch. This place had a great rating, and I liked what I saw on the menu, so naturally we wanted to try it! We (embarrassingly) arrived right as they were... More

Great choice. Lots of 'specials' but they seem to run for the week which is a bit disappointing when you eat there regularly. Not had a bad meal here and the staff are on the ball and look after you well. Steaks are great, ribs are way too big for one person to eat but tasty, and the Mac and... More

We have dined at the Standford Grill numerous times since they have opened and they are very consistent with food and service. It fills a very sparsely populated, and much needed niche in between the "family-style" steak places like Outback and Lone Star and the "expense account" establishments such as Morton's and Ruth's Chris. You're probably going to spend between... More

When the Stanford Grill first opened, it was an amazing restaurant. The food, service and ambiance could not be beat, and we used to dine there at least once a month Then, in 2013, we noticed a distinct downward spiral in food quality and service and cut back on our visits, hoping that the management would get it together.

Nice spot for us to meet and gather with family. Great wait staff, very attentive and prompt. Food arrived as ordered and nicely cooked/presented. Cornbread and guacamole apps were excellent. Arctic char special was superb. Desserts (key lime pie and cherry sorbet) were excellent. Only complaint was that one member of our party has a corn allergy. Her salad was... More

I had reservations for 2 at 7pm on a Thursday night. I got there, and the parking lot was filled. I got a parking spot and checked in with the host at 6:55pm. The host looked at me, and said, "we just gave away your table." and then continued to tell me that I would have to wait 10-15 minutes... More

We ate here last night for the first time and will definitely add this to our favorite places to go. We were greeted, seated, and greeted at the table quickly and professionally.
