Great place in Stanley. Laid back, gives you the feel of a small community run restaurant. Pancakes are the size of a dinner plate (including the short stack). Free coffee and Iced-tea (self-served). Great place for families or anyone who wants a great home-made breakfast. The service is very personable but don't expect to get in and out quick, go... More

The cafe is run by a group of dedicated "seniors" who guide the boss when the restaurant should be open. (Closed on Mondays) Personality of this place is great and very popular for both breakfast and dinner. Quality and quantity of servings is reminiscent of home cooking. Staff are most hospitable and fun. Worth a visit.

The food is beyond delicious. The staff is very friendly unlike some businesses in Stanley and the prices are reasonable. For instance one day we did 2 lunch entrees, dessert, 3 bags of ice (we were camping) and a $5 tip and it came to $33. In the future we plan on making a stop here anytime we are in... More

We ate at the Pot Belly Cafe after coming off a 6 day river trip. We were tired and wanted some simple, good food, which we got. The menu had burgers, pulled pork, ribs, steaks, etc., so something for every appetite. A great place for families as burgers and sandwiches are about half the price of other places in town....

Very friendly staff and good food. Salad is extra cost, but servings are large and it wasn't needed. Twice baked potato was excellent.

We went to breakfast here after seeing lines and crowds at numerous other venues in stanley. Great decision. The staff made us feel welcome and like part of a family. The food was delicious and the service was spot on. Would like to return for dinner to try their prime rib some day

We opted to eat twice in the Pot Belly Restaurant attached to this RV resort where we spent two nights. The first night's ribs and pulled pork were good but nothing special. However, the second night's offering of SMOKED Prime Rib was absolutely wonderful! Nowhere before had we been offered such a delicacy. The evening salad bar was typical of... More

This is listed as an RV resort, but I notice most of the reviews aren't about the park -- they are about the restaurant. After dining here this weekend, I think it deserves a place among restaurants as well (it was very good).
