Stanford's has a great bar menu and their ribs are the best around town. Salads are fresh and are generously proportioned. Service is friendly and efficient and their martinis are very tasty and excellently prepared. There is one close to my side of town and we frequently end up there for happy hour, ,lunch or dinner.

I had high expectations from what I had heard, but my meat was over done & the salad was at least different from the usual choices

On a Thursday - sat Down ordered and drinks too 10 min+ to get. Food took forever and the steak was cold coming out. The assistant manger could care less she was so busy. Then it took another 15 min to get our wine that we ordered with dinner. Not even the waitress asked how's it going... Think before you... More

We frequently go for happy hour for the combination of good food an inexpensive drinks. There are few places that have both drink and food specials for happy hour and Stanfords is one of them. It costs a bit more than some dive bars in the area but for just a couple dollars more (~$5-6 on a check for 2... More

While on summer vacation, we dined at Stanford's for an early dinner. It was an oasis for us after a hectic hustle bustle day exploring downtown Portland and the various districts. Although I am vegetarian I have always loved the ambiance and service of ultimate steakhouses. Stanford's provided an elegant, non-rushed atmosphere with knowledgeable, service minded staff, and outstanding food... More

There were five of us on a recent Sunday. I think it must have been before 6pm because it wasn't as crowded as it usually is but it was also pretty hot out, so maybe people were eating a little later. We were shown to a private area in back, which I thought was great until a party of about... More

Shopping near by and stopping for lunch, we discovered a friendly, good, and convenient restaurant. The decor was pleasing and the service was first rate. We all (3) had different choices and all were fresh, flavorful, and generous. The cost was very reasonable and we voted we would go back again.

We were staying in Hillsboro convenient to our relatives. They took us out to dinner along with their son and his wife. From what I could gather, they have a great selection of craft beers. Being a wine drinker, I ordered wine only to receive a really short pour as did another in our party. So, the beer came and... More

We had dinner here last weekend on our way home from a wedding. The restaurant was getting busy so we were happy we were there early. Service was good but not fabulous, the restaurant was nice but not amazingly so, and it was expensive. I would return it I really wanted steak again, but otherwise it was a good, not... More
