Have eaten many times at Stanley's, for lunch and dinner, and never a bad meal. Lunch on a recent Friday was no different. We were seated immediately at just around noon. The place filled up while we were there. The menu is large and varied, and they have a wonderful salad bar. We were a party of 4, with 2... More

Had dinner with family and friends and had a great time. I'm a sucker for good Meat Loaf and Stanley's didn't disappoint. The meatloaf was well prepared sitting on a generous bed of smashed potatoes with a mean dark gravy that tied the dish together in a perfect balanced plate. I was slightly disappointed that my entree included only the... More

Just a really fun local sports bar with a great salad bar, terrific ribs and good pub grub. Be sure you great the onion rings tender inside and crispy outside. The soups are really good as well.

Before I travel, I scout out restaurants that have decent-looking gluten-free menus. So after a very long workday on a business trip, a colleague and I headed here to chow down and unwind. I got the GF steak tips and mashed potatoes bowl, and my dinner companion had the ribs, which he said were fantastic. We washed it all down... More

I hadn't been to Stanley's in years but my husband told me that they had a real gluten free menu not like so many that have caesar salad without croutons, etc. I was pleasantly surprised by the selection, especially sandwiches which I like for lunch. I had a roast beef sandwich, served with "au jus" which was an ample portion.... More

As sports bars go, this is OK. Not great, but not bad. Menu is somewhat varies, but I am told the burgers are good. I had a Philly cheese steak -- Yo, we were close to Philly. Not as good as those at Geno's on 9th street in Philly, but passable because of the large portion of meat. Fish tacos... More

Have been at this restaurant twice since my last review. Neither time was without its problems. Had delicious ribs, but would have been so much better if they were served hot. The only item that was hot was a side of creamed spinach, which looked like plain spinach. Also avoid sitting anywhere near the hostess' station, where staff tend to... More

Stanley's is a place to go for excellent cocktails and comfort food including pot pies, meat loaf, good burgers as well as fries, onion rings and the regular lunch and dinner fair. Overall the food is good--not great but right for most occasions--the service is quick and friendly
