Head to Stanley's for a Juicy Lucy burger and a beer - you won't be sorry! Only bummer is parking - smallest parking lot ever! Watch for potholes.

Any of the burgers are great for lunch. I especially like the Drunkin' Lucy, a variation of the Juicy Lucy, with bleu cheese stuffed inside the burger patty. The pulled pork is also recommended. They have lots of salads, but we've not tried one --yet. Next time :)

Was looking for a good brunch place with friends & someone recommended this venue. Wow what a great find! The atmosphere is casual & super friendly. The service was fantastic. Our server went out of her way to make sure we were happy. The food and drinks were delicious, fresh & great portions. Definitely coming back!

The upstairs private area is a wonderful area to host a private party. The food is always delicious an the staff is out of this world. We have had two consecutive parties at Stanely's and will be returning again next year! I highly recommend having your private gathering at Stanley's!

Great little place to have a burger and a beer. Prices are reasonable and the food is fantastic, try the Hangover Burger it's the best. The tots are good too.

Bring your dog. The (attractive) waitresses will put you on the patio and offer you the doggie menu. This is a classic friendly neighborhood bar turned slightly upscale with a good menu and beer selection. I like it here.

Thank you for visiting Stanley's and sharing your experience with us. We love our furry friends and love that you brought your pup in to dine. It really brightens our day. The Mutt Hut - our heated tented patio is dog friendly throughout the winter. We hope to see you again soon. More
