Great food at a good price

We had the onion rings as an appetizer, which was brought out in the form or a pyramid. 8 or 9 big onion rings perfectly fried with blue cheese dipping sauce. Really tasty. And we ordered two salmons cooked and grilled with different sauces. The lemon sauce on one of the orders was amazing. The... read more

It was a Friday night, I sat alone, took a bit to be approached by bartender. Bier was delivered promptly. I continued to scan the menu for an appetizer, but as bartender passed by me several times, as well as mixing drinks in front me never asked if I wanted to order some good. I had to ask her to...

This is a nice little restaurant in Lake Oswego. My wife and I like to go here on Sundays when they have an excellent happy hour all day and the food is great. We usually just sit in the bar and chill and occasionally glance at the sports games that they have playing on the televisions in the bar. But... More

We came in for appetizers before heading out to meet up with friends. A nice cocktail and a shared order of one of their specialties: wood-fire grilled baby back ribs. A little on the sweet side, but by sharing a 1/2-rack, it left room for a dinner out with friends.

PALTravel – Thank you for your review. Sharing an entrée as an appetizer? What a great idea! Our famous BBQ Ribs are perfect for sharing. Also, for a limited time, we are running a BBQ Rib combo special… 1/3 rack with your choice of steak, salmon or crab cakes. Awesome! Until next time… Cheers! Rick N. More

I always try and hit this place when in Portland / Lake O area, and I did two times on this trip. The service was very good, and the food was as excellent as always! Steak salad and a grand Manhattan, bar none, the best around!!!

Went here with my two daughters and the food was ok. The cost with tip was a little over $100 so I would say that there's probably better deals around.

Visited here last week with 10 other people for a work lunch. Expected slow service because of the size of our group but was instead rewarded with an attentive server, an amazing lunch of grilled halibut tacos and a really nice atmosphere. I will revisit on my next work trip. Person next to me had the Ahi Salad, looked amazing... More

We got in late and had drinks and apps at Stanford's. Lovely with great outdoor seating. I had wine and my brother had a bourbon and sliders - they were delicious. Thanks.

This restaurant was located across from our hotel(Hilton Garden Inn). We could walk across the street for a relaxing meal and family time to talk and relax. We did not feel like we had to rush through our meal. One night we arrived 10 minutes before closing time and we were very welcomed and thanked for our service.
