Nice outdoor seating and good food

Getting in a little before the lunch crowd allowed us to score one of the great outdoor tables for a lovely lunch. (A little noisy since it's overlooking Rt-175, but not so loud you can't carry on a conversation.) Their lunch menu had many good items listed, making my choice a little difficult... read more

Nice restaurant with a good bar and menu big on rotisserie chicken, burgers, and salads. My favorite....the Cobb, come with an excellent blue cheese, crisp bacon and world class dressing. Big portions...big enough to share. Friendly staff.

Great food, a nice place to go for a treat but I wouldn't choose to eat there every day. Friendly staff.

of the right stuff is how I would describe Stanford Grille. The food is not over the top but still tasty enough to be better than mediocre. The fleur de lis cocktail may have made it seem better than it was as it is truly delicious with a summer flare. The service is a little on the commercial side but... More

It's a really nice atmosphere, and the portions are huge. The service was great. I enjoyed the food, and would like to try some other things that are their specialties. I had the special of the day, rainbow trout which was average, but enjoyable. I suspect some of the other things would be even better so I'd like to try... More

Best rotisserie chicken anywhere. While can be a little pricey it serves up great taste and attentive service. From apps to desert all is very robustly tasty. Also, lots of daily specials that are always fresh.

Was pleased to have enjoyed the experience while in the area on June 12, 2015. Great atmosphere for catching up with a dear friend and mentor, and I was not disappointed by the authentic Maryland Crab Cakes. I had previewed the menu prior to our departure and was not disappointed when I got the real thing. If you get the... More

Went here for a business lunch a few months ago. The place is large and expansve. Nice booths, we sat close to the fireplace. Everything looked to be clean and well kept. I had a slald to which I believe I added steak. My coworkers had the fish special. We all were pleased with foos and service.

A group of colleagues and I ate here on a recent business trip. For the food and price, we wouldn't return. The southwest eggroll appetizer was fine, but what you'd expect from a TGIFridays/Ruby Tuesdays type of chain. Entrees included a chicken salad (fine), pork loin special (just okay), tuna steak (just okay), and two mahi mahi specials (both coworkers... More

According to our server, the restaurant is best known for its wood-fired rotisserie chicken. We tried it, and it was good, but they also offer a number of very good steak and seafood options. Huge deserts.
