The service was excellent from the moment we walked in to the time we left. We never had to wait nor want for anything. The food was delicious. Two individuals I was with ordered the Rotisserie Chicken. Honestly, one order would be enough for two people because of the large portion size (even the sides are served generously). I ordered...

So obviously the draw here is supposed to be the Rotisserie chicken. It was ok. Nothing special. I ordered a salad with chicken in it and it was huge. But the dressing choices were limited and not good. The Tomato Basil soup is delicious. The mashed potatoes were good. My friend ordered a chicken pot pie but she sent it... More

I heard the food was good. It is fabulous American burgers and steak. I tried several items at the Sunday brunch. The price was steep. I won't return until I have a super special occasion.

Had lunch with family. The food and service were excellent. I had the fish and chips and it was a generous portion with more chips than I could eat. Wife had the chicken pot pie with excellent homemade crust: son had the French Dip and enjoyed it; and, daughter in law had a salad which was very large. Prices were... More

We went here for Sunday brunch. Excited to try food from the menu the Steak ended up being eh..ok i guess. What I really cant believe they treat this like an upscale steakhouse. Outrageously priced for the quality of steak. We won't be back.. service was okay.

We decided to have dinner here after reading the good reviews on this place. I ordered the rotisserie chicken and my husband ordered the rack of ribs. These two entrees are their speciality, and they were absolutely delicious!!! We had the bread pudding for dessert. It was also delicious. I don't think you can go wrong with this place. We... More

Waiting to be seated was well worth the wait time. Stanford Grill, is indeed one of the best dining experiences in Columbia, Maryland. Love the ambiance with option of dining outdoors with a fire place, patio style or indoors. Foods and beverages were excellent. Really enjoyed my Cosmo, and the Lobster Mac n cheese and Lump meat Crab cake were... More
