Sassy and savory salmon.. A must try !

The food and service was excellent but the only issue I had was the server really did not know about the wine selection. The first one she recommended was junk. Didn't even offer a tasting to see. If would be okay Ordered a different one, which was so much better. The salmon was just awesome... read more

Food is was decent and good portion size. Service was fine. Speed of food prep and delivery was slow. One of the kids' milk glasses was dirty inside and out. Unacceptable. We ordered a kids pepperoni pizza. It was without the pepperoni. I must've missed something. I though this was a decent place. Maybe I caught them on a rough... More

We love going to Stanfords. The atmosphere and decor creates a warm inviting feeling. The staff are friendly and efficient. We ordered the Mac and cheese and the chicken club. The food was delicious.

Good was ok. Had the buffalo chicken tenders. They were tender and just ok. Onion rings were huge and pretty good. Ordered a vodka gimlet. Terrible. Stick with beer and stay away from classic cocktails.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review on Trip Advisor. I was sorry to read about your vodka gimlet experience. Our recipe calls for 2 oz. vodka, 1 oz. fresh squeezed lime juice, 1 oz. simple syrup, ice. Shaken and strained into a martini glass – garnished with fresh lime wedge. I have shared the recipe with... More

Stopped in for late appetizers and a beer the other day. Friend had Patty Melt, said it is was good; and I had the Crab cakes; just ok, too much breading. Service a little slow, but at least the Ninkasi IPAs were cold. Probably will try the Oswego Grill across the street next time....

We hadn't been to a Stanford's in a long time. So when a Groupon came up for one in our area we decided to give it ago. The parking lot was full. We literally got the last space in the lot. So I popped my head into the bar figuring it was their happy hour, but even though the tables... More

Not great service the night we went. Food is typical american fare without any bells or whistles. I'm sure they have good days and bad days, we happened to go on an average day. Drinks were good, food bland and uninspired. We tried their happy hour to see if its improved but again they seem to be scrimping on appetizers... More

We go here frequently. It's easy to park, plenty of handicap spots. Hostess needs to be more pro-active assisting people with disabilities opening doors, etc. Restaurant and Bar Service Good. Nice Varied Menu, Great Happy Hour. Lively Bar with booths, bistro tables, bar seating, etc.

Appealing place with very reasonable HH prices and options but the food is just ordinary. Bar is a bit small with several TVs but due to the bar layout--not real easy to view them. Basically a burger & steak place. Portions a bit small and drink prices (non Happy Hour) seem a bit high. Staff and service was good. Staying... More

My wife and I went to this restaurant for lunch at 12:30 p.m. There were plenty of tables and we were quickly seated. We ordered our meals but I had to grab the waiter passing our table at 1:15 p.m. to find out what had happened to the orders. I was told that the computers were down and they were... More
