This corner restaurant right on Jackson Square is sort of a last resort. It has a lunch counter atmosphere an the service is spotty. The food is delivered(not served) and is a choice if nothing else will do. It is a shame they can not open up the windows or doors on to Jackson Square(weather permitting) to hear the jazz... More

The food here is very good and the menu is creative. Our server was attentive, bright and energetic. The drinks were average at best. My bloody lacked flavor and spice, but let's be real who comes to New Orleans for bloody marys?

The food was way over priced, tasted mediocre and the service was the worst I've ever experienced. We waited 30 minutes for our bill while 6 servers stood at the bar chatting away.

Good old fashioned home cooked comfort food with a New Orleans twist. Food was simple and DELICIOUS. The red beans and rice were to die for. Even if you have something else to eat - get at least a small order to share. Also had a nice twist on the mimosa - (Megamosa - ie BIG - in a hurricane... More

Picked this place due to the accolades of you "advisors" who apparently have no real taste. There is nothing that would lead me back here. Now it was OK, only criticism is for the amount of workers standing around in the slow hours of the afternoon, someone should have had a broom sweeping the dusty floor.

I found this place on Yelp and it had great reviews so we decided to try it. First off I have to give credit to the staff manager. Everyone was so friendly and worked collectively as one. I was very impressed by the way the restaurant was being managed and customer service which is lacking in a lot of places.... More

We fell into Stanley's on Jackson Square in New Orleans because it looked casual and truly serving indigenous foods. Also, I could find a salad to satisfy my vegetarian diet. The location is excellent, the staff very warm and welcoming and efficient. I had a lovely Caesar style salad with a chipotle vinaigrette dressing and two slices of warm french... More

We ate breakfast here twice during our New Orleans stay. Food was unique and tasty both times. I am not a fan of grits, but ordered them because I hoped a southern restaurant would know how to fix them. They did! What a treat! Highly recommend the jambalaya also. I do like my coffee in the AM, and the refills... More

A fellow often visitor to new Orleans, like us, told us about Stanley's. My husband and I can't wait to have breakfast when we visit. The eggs benedicts are wonderful. The side of potatoes was a little lacking in spice on this trip. The coffee was interesting as usual, thick and strong. It is well worth the wait as are... More
