Big family dinner

Good restaurant. Good food. Service okay. Had large round table for seven of us which was nice. Two people split a filet mignon dinner, and each person got a very nice portion. My husband's french dip was excellent.

We stopped going to this Stanfords about 5 - 6 years ago after a sharp decline in the quality of food and service. We decided to give it another try and we were not disappointed. The fish and chips that I had was delicious and crispy. My sons were pleased with their sirloin steak and burger. Unfortunately, I found the... More

I indulged in a Stanford's Dinner the other night with my wife and a friend of hers from out of town. I've been to this location once or twice before, and I couldn't remember if I had been particularly enthusiastic about the food from those visits. This visit surprised me, and not because of the service, but because of the... More

Hello Adam - Bazinga! Thanks for your review. It sounds like you liked the food, which is great… but were a bit perplexed by our tableware. Truth be told, our chicken-tender-tornado (technical term), was designed so our servers could carry this appetizer in one trip. But, *real* truth be told... when not being used to transport hand-cut, buttermilk fried chicken... More

We had lunch on Saturday. There was nobody at the door to seat us. Service was slow and the food was not as good as we have enjoyed on prior visits.

The service was great and the food delicious. They did not mind the children and were patient and helpful with the special needs.

Great baby back ribs! I frequented Stanfords a lot when I lived in the area years ago. The ribs were a delicious stroll down memory lane. And the cozy private atmosphere as welcoming as I remember.

Great location. Great Service. Great Food. Located at I-5/217, this restaurant is easy to access. Plenty of parking. Service is always great. Today, Sienna had just the right amount of interaction... Friendly, funny and professional. The menu is varied. Today for lunch I had what I thought would be just a burger... But it was better! Cooked perfect with great... More

I've been to Stanford's four times in the past eight months. The first time I went for lunch with my Oregon associates and enjoyed a bowl of soup on a cold, rainy day. The place was appealingly dark with a fireplace and a woodsy ambiance. Service was a little slow, especially because we shared that I had a plane to... More

Stanford has been in Lake Oswego for many years now and has long been a popular magnet for the business lunch crowd working nearby. It has been remodeled since it first opened and the menu has been changed but the food is consistently good. It also has a bar that is very popular.

Good food priced competitively. Can be rather dark inside but feels cozy on the right day. Happy Hour menu is good.
