Late lunch and drinks. The Buffalo shrimp was amazing! Cold beer live music. Be sure to check hours because they close July 4-Oct 1 and were open only Sat and Sun from 11-5pm (until 7pm on 3rd). Our daughter liked feeding the catfish her leftover scraps. Gift shop and outdoor seating on marina. Very casual

You do not go to Stans for top quality food, cocktails, or service. You DO however go to stands on Sunday because it it IS the place to be. It is the best people watching spot in SW Florida. beer is ice cold. Check out all the awesome motorcycles too!!

The staff works their tails off to attend to the crowd on Sunday afternoons. Kudos to them! Stan's booked a fabulous band, The Ben Allen Band - and we loved the music. We didn't eat there. The domestics were cheap. The specialty island drinks were overpriced but that's to be expected. Great people watching. It's a staple when visiting.

I came here for the first time on Saturday when Hot Damn Duo was playing music. It's a GREAT place to relax and enjoy good music with a beverage. I didn't eat but my rum was fixed exactly like I like it. Norm and Deb played wonderful music and got the crowd going. It was a great day! Highly recommend... More
