Very nice restaurant tastfully and rustically decorated offering both casual fare and nicer entrees. Upon entering, there was live music playing softly at the front entrance. My husband was the happiest with his meal featuring one of the chefs specials consisting of fried soft crabs. I had a burger which probably wasn't the best choice on my part. The other... More

Nice very atmosphere, staff and people and easy parking. No hassles great after work treat, excellent cocktails but costly, $14 Pomegranate Martini would be nice to have a better selection of happy hour priced cocktails not available, just beer and wine, that's a bummer.

This is my go-to place for Ahi Tuna Salad - it's terrific and prepared according to guest preferences. Always order the corn bread as it is a yummy accompaniment. I've been there for brunch, lunch and dinner with multiple guests and no one has ever had a bad meal. The only down side is the time it takes to get... More

I've been to Stanford Grill on several occasions for business meetings and with family. The food is always high quality, tasty, and never disappoints. The service has always been consistently good - knowledgeable of the dishes, patient and very friendly.

This was our third trip to this restaurant. All diners on all of our trips were very happy with their selections. This last trip was the best. I had their soft crab special which was two fried crabs (I usually like them sautéed) but they were amazing. Served with some taboule that was incredible. Also their cornbread is a must.... More

The Stanford Grill is one of my favorite local places! The food is ALWAYS delicious, and the service is outstanding! There can be a challenge to get a table on a Saturday night, so call ahead!

While on a difficult business trip, the Stanford Grill was what I looked forward to at the end of the grueling days. It was right next to the Courtyard by Marriot and if you showed your hotel key, you got a free dessert. Not only was the food high quality and innovative, the service was fabulous. It was only lucky... More

Food is delicious, would eat it anytime. Service is spotty, lacking in attention to detail. 1. Had reservations for 7 people at noon. Two of us arrived at 11:45 and were shown to our table. A server came to us, asked if we would like something to drink. We were uncertain so he said he'd bring some water while we... More

We had lunch at the Stanford Grill in Columbia, Maryland on a Saturday. We did have a reservation; however, it appeared that we really didn't need one for 1:00 PM. The interior of the restaurant is very pleasantly decorated in "contemporary rustic" (my term). It is reasonably spacious and has patio dining available should one wish (too hot for us... More

I had two great experiences at the Stanford Grill. The first time, it was just my husband and I and the second time, I took my staff to the restaurant within a week. The meals were prepared beautifully and they tasted spectacular! I highly recommend this restaurant for a nice date night or a small get-together/staff party. The staff handled... More
