Fried oysters are a headline all by themselves!

We were searching for an oyster po' boy (fried oysters, dressing, in a large bun) and found Stanley's right on Jackson Square. We ordered one and the fried oysters were so good, we ordered two portions of just fried oysters - which were delicious.

Wonderful brunch spot! We had an hour long wait, but were able to shop until they texted us. The food was amazing and worth the wait! Try ANY of the eggs benedict, we raved about them all!

This place was recommended by a local. Great food! It may be slightly higher in price but it is well worth it. I had red beans & rice with Andouille sausage, and it was spiced perfectly and delicious.

I am probably not the most qualified reviewer for New Orleans restaurants. I eat chicken and fish, but not red meat or shellfish. My Cesar salad with grilled chicken was good. Most everyone in our group seemed to like their food. We were a group of 14. We had to split into couples and a small group at the counter.... More

Five days in New Orleans with a lot of eating. Two places were listed as having the best breakfasts in N.O., so we checked out both. Stanley wins hands down. They have this breakfast sandwich which I understand you might think what??? But I am telling you it is the bomb.It comes with bacon and ham and that bacon is... More

The bacon and cheese grits were outstanding. The others items just ok, would have likes to see more "New Orleans flare". Service was very good.

We stopped in for a quick lunch - apparently breakfast is what the rave is all about. In our party we had double Stanley burger, soft shell crab poboy, gumbo and red beans and rice. The burger was good, the poboy received lots of praise and the red beans were not so good. Breakfast must be the ticket.

My sis and I walked in the door and were greeted and seated immediately. The place was packed full of folks, and we were pleasantly surprised that there wasn't a wait. Our server came over and took our beverage orders as soon as we were seated. She was friendly and helpful. Stanley's have a limited breakfast menu, but we were... More

My wife and I went to Cafe du Monde for breakfast, quickly got a table and then sat for about ten minutes without service as waiters were sitting around, perhaps on break. Thank goodness! We ended up at Stanley's. We had a great breakfast and fabulous service. We loved the menu and look forward to returning for dinner. Be aware,... More
