The 4 of us had fish, steak, pot pie and a burger. All of these dishes were above average in taste and presentation. They were also WAY above average in size. We would all have been fine sharing 3 dishes and probably still had leftovers. One of the group ordered dessert, god knows why. We got the brownie sundae, which... More

We are usual here once a month and have never had less than outstanding service and great food. Between my husband and kids we have tried everything on the menu. The crab cakes are my husbands favorite and my daughter loves the petit filet which is grilled to perfection. They do a mean brunch on Sundays with a complimentary beverage... More

Love the outdoor patio at this restaurant. If it weren't for the Target store you see in the background, you could pretend you are at a wonderful restaurant in Napa Valley. Their salads are delicious and so are their desserts!

Great food and bartenders. Always can find a seat at the bar during the week for date night, reservations should be made if you are going on Friday or Saturday. Always wonderful service and the jazz band is a nice touch when they are in!

This is one of my favs, and a default for events ranging from special occasions to Daye night. The ambiance is very intimate and the food is great! The Fiesta egg rolls as a starter are addictive, as well as the spinach and artichoke dip. Entrees that please include the prime rib, rattlesnake pasta, and the salada. Drinks include high... More

A very relaxing dinner. Food is always good and staff well trained and great atmosphere. My favorite is the roast chicken dinner and the house salad. I have never had a bad dinner at this restaurant.

As always, everything was superb. The brunch menu includes your choice of beverage to include Mimosa and some other nice choices. The Steak and Eggs special comes with potatoes but you can substitute fresh fruit. My eggs Florentine were divine. There was live music and the fireplace was glowing. Service is a-one!

The place is jumping, so they must be doing something right, and I hesitate to review a place when I'm clearly out of tune with most of its customers. But maybe a couple notes. Stanford Grill is basically a steakhouse, with an emphasis on big portions. Melted butter is everywhere. Veggie options are minimal. If you don't feel like red... More

Since my daughter lives in Columbia, she has recommended this restaurant as a gathering place. I have patronized this establishment about 5 times during 2016. On each and every time, I and sometimes others in our party have had to return dishes for a swap because of the tremendous amount of pepper seasoning they use in preparing the dishes I... More
