Good basic grill restaurant

This is your basic grill restaurant. The food is good, but not outstanding. If you want an outstanding grill restaurant, go to Oswego Grill.

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.

This place is one of my favorites in LO. I stay at one of the two nearby hotels when I come to town and I've never seen a need to go anywhere else when I'm eating alone. Nice crowd at the bar, good food. It's a very comfortable place to have a meal. Beer is cold :-) Service is always... More

My husband and I eat here a few times a year. They have a good basic menu and then a sheet of specials that usually look pretty good. I have had the mixed grill skewers served with rice pilaf and veggies many times and it is always delicious! My husband likes the steak entrees which he always says are great... More

After traveling all day and then setting up to provide training the next, I wanted a nice relaxing Monday evening meal. I sat at the bar, which on that night was not full. The bartender was attentive, the food came quickly and was very good.
