Coldest beer on the beach! Chavez & Christian very much on top of everything. Great deal on burgers & honey stung chicken. Cannot beat being there for happy hour after all cruise people gone.

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions in the past - always was a great experience. But this last visit was the worst restaurant experience we've ever had. Extremely slow service, messed-up orders, etc. The waiter we had was surly from the start, and actually physically threatened one of our friends at the table. It was so bad, that... More

Ate lunch twice at Tony's Welcome Bar, FKA Stanley's. The prices were good, especially if you don't order fries, which are extra. The burger was OK, but the sandwich the menu calls a "salmon burger" was outstanding: a sizeable boneless salmon filet, seasoned and served on a good bun with lettuce and tomato. BTW, if you are eating with a... More

Went to eat at Stanleys for a late lunch. The cheeseburger(which was written about in Jimmy Buffets song was very good. I was more impressed with their cole slaw. Once all the cruise ship day trippers left the place transformed into a tranquil paradise with a great sunset. A truly memorable day.

The cruise ships send over the tourist crowd in the morning - they're gone by afternoon. After that, Stanley's is pretty cool. They finally replaced the long-missing tire with a new one, so you can swing over the surf...and still make great drinks and snacks. We tend to spend the entire afternoon on the beach there.

I live in Cane Garden Bay now. For years ate here when visiting. But please note the name change. Food the same great quality. The cheeseburger still best value on the island. And the Painkillers beat Soggy Dollar anyday. When the cruise ships come in I always advise folks to grab lunch here. Note they usually close at 7 pm... More

My son and I enjoyed the famous cheeseburger in paradise. The cole slaw served with the burgers was the best I've ever tasted! My daughter and husband ordered grilled grouper and reported that it was yummy as well. Service was slow but the view of Cane Garden Bay was beautiful,

We have been going to Stanley's for 15+ years. It is the best place on the island to see the sunset (after the cruise people have left and sanity returns), as the kids romp and build castles, the dogs play, and folks just walk the beach. A fitting end to the day and not pretentious as in Key West. Just... More

Stanley's I think is Jimmy Buffet's cheeseburger in Paradise location. I like Stanley's because they have the best sunset view, food that is cheaper than cooking at home, and at lunch time, the sweet uniformed kids from the grade school come in for lunch, what a better option than school cafeteria food! Once, I left my wallet there (it wasn't... More

Stanley's is nothing more than a shack on beautiful Cane Garden Beach. Plastic chairs, that kind of place. But, it's set right on the beach, gorgeous views, very tasty french fries, actually all the food we had (fish and mango chicken wrap) was quite tasty. Service was even pretty good too. Nice place to waste away an afternoon under a... More
