Went to Stanley's for lunch. Service was OK & friendly, hence the 2-star review. The downside was that garbage was brought through the restaurant, with fluids leaking and spilling onto the floor. Nobody cleaned it up. We ordered burgers. They were undercooked and rather bland overall. My wife is pregnant so we sent hers back - and hope she and... More

I was traveling to New Orleans on business, so my husband who came along for fun was on his own for breakfast. He went here the first day — and every day after! Great service, friendly staff and amazing food make this one of the best places for breakfast in the French Quarter.

We went for breakfast to Stanley at 9am. Restaurant is perfectly located on Jackson Square. Place was almost empty. It was amazing, as I have read some stories about long lines at this location. We have ordered Eggs Stanley ($16.00), Stanley Classic ($12.25) and cofee ($2.50). Breakfast was tasty, but I was not blown away, especially keeping in mind very... More

I want to say this was a fluke experience given others' reviews, but I feel compelled to share. My husband and I popped into Stanley for a late brunch. I had the Stanley Benedict and a small bowl of gumbo. My husband had the thanksgiving turkey croissant. The food was cold when it arrived to the table. I couldn't tell... More

We dropped by for lunch. Ordered the Shrimp Po Boy.. It was fabulous. Great flavor and texture. The sauce was very flavorful. The Banana Fosters French Toast looked amazing as well. Service was great. Establishment was clean.

Cute corner restaurant right off Jackson Square by the Cathedral. Perfect for people watching! Great service! Bill anticpated our needs before we ever had to ask. Breakfast is served all day, and everything was delicious! Ordered the Breaux Bridge Benedict and Bananas Foster French Toast. It was so good that we came back the next day! Food is a little... More

I was a bit disappointed with this place. I got the corned beef and eggs. The service was marginal and the food a bit high for the area. It's OK, but probably will not return.

Nothing special is about the Stanley restaurant, but I liked it because nice interior, very good service (like in most of the places in the New Orleans). You can see on my picture a sample of their prices with the names of the dishes. I did not expected sophisticated kitchen and I've got what I wanted. The view outside the... More

My husband and I are both from Louisiana and had never eaten at Stanley before. We were looking for a good place to eat brunch in New Orleans and Stanley kept coming up as a place to try. We got there about 11:30 on Sunday morning and had to get on a waiting list. They told us it would be... More
